Margarita:Well, I’ve met someone just recently and we’ve been going out for almost a week now.
Yuliana:I can tell! You must be very happy in your new relationship! Tell me more!
Margarita:Ok … We’re taking the same course at the college, so that’s where we met. He is studying General Science.
Yuliana:Great! And what does he look like?
Margarita:He’s tall, with brown hair… He is like a spitting image of Justin Trudeau!
Yuliana:Wow, I am so happy for you!
Margarita:Thanks. And what about your date? How did it go?
Yuliana:It was no good… The guy turned out to be vertically challenged with a face only a mother could love…
Margarita:Ah, was it that bad?
Yuliana:I am pretty sure it was… But on second thought, maybe he just had a bad hair day.
Margarita:I think you should get to know him better. You know that appearances can be deceiving, don’t you?
Yuliana:You are right. We seemed to have a good time. I might give it another try.
Margarita:There you go!
