Neste diálogo nosso amigo americano Mark explica como ele faz para chamar uma mulher para sair nos Estados Unidos.
Mike: OK, so for those of us listening who are not familiar with dating in the US, practices are different, Mark, how would you go about getting a date with somebody in the US?
Mark: Ah, well, I, that’s a difficult question because you know I don’t always succeed with that, but I guess usually you like a girl. You begin talking to her and find some things in common with her and, I don’t know, if you feel like she likes you and you like her then you ask her out.
Mike: OK, what would you say? “Do you feel like going out this evening?” or “What are your plans?” or “Are you busy?”
Mark: Well,those, all of those ways are so typical. Their so usual, so I don’t use those, I don’t say those things because I feel like it’s just too common, so I think women, or girls, usually respond better if you’re very direct, so I say something more like, um “So which is better for you, Friday night or Saturday night?”
Mike: OK, and they resond with a slapped face, or no? Then, what do they say to you?
Mark: You’d be surprised. Usually, it’s, um, some good responses. I mean if the person doesn’t like you then maybe they give you an excuse, “Oh, I’m busy Friday and I’m busy Saturday.” Well, that’s OK. Then you know, that that person doesn’t like you (right) but, um, but usually that direct question, it, the girl or the woman is often surprised that you’re so direct so she laughs and she tells you an answer, “I’m free Friday.” So you get a good response many times with direct questioning like that.
Mike: OK, and what would you do then on your, on a date? Would you say, “Great, let’s go bowling!” or?
Mark: I would set a time and again, I think it’s not so important, what you do, as it is important to, to just make a decision and to do it, so some girls might not like bowling but if you pick her up on a date and you say, “Hey, we’re going bowling tonight.” If she really doesn’t like bowling, she will tell you but usually if she doesn’t mind bowling then she’s happy that you made the choice. That’s better than asking her, “So, what do you want to do tonight?”
Mike: I guess especially if you’re the one spending the money for it then.
Mark: That’s a good point. Yes. Absolutely.
Mike: It’ll work out well for both. Well, thanks a lot, Mark.That’s great.
Mark: You’re welcome.
