New to dating and relationships
But in a new relationship, it’s learning to hold back the excitement that ends up distancing new lovers.
If you’ve just met a perfect partner and don’t want to ruin a perfect start, here are all the pointers you need to take it from a new relationship to a good relationship. Remember that new workout dvd you picked up some time ago?
Basically saying that they love the podcast and some people are using it just to learn English when they are, for example, driving to work, or travelling on the bus, or on the underground, and some people are teachers who are using the podcasts in their English lessons. ’ ‘Well, nothing.’ [Nothing really or nothing special.] But sometimes, you know, you can talk about the things that you have been doing. And when we talk about recent news like that, we often use the present perfect continuous tense or sometimes the present perfect tense. So, the present perfect continuous tense is structured like this, we have ‘have’ or ‘has’ ‘been’ and then an ‘-ing’ form. Or, ‘I’ve been playing a lot of football recently.’ Yeah? And we use that form in the question as well, ‘What have you been doing recently.’ Yeah? Now, maybe you understood it but if you didn’t, I’m going to explain it for you bit by bit now. I normally hate it when friends pair you off with complete strangers. So, when a friend pairs you off with someone, it means that your friend put you in a pair with someone. He says, ‘Oh, that will be the door.’ Right, so, what happen is, she said, ‘I hoped you are not like the other guys, I think you are not like the other guys. Actually, he thought that was somebody knocking on the door. Because when she went touch wood, he said that would be the door and he left the table because he thought somebody was knocking on the front door. And then she said ‘good’ at t he end but she doesn’t really mean it. So, I’m just going to play you the whole sketch again, so that you can listen to it from the start to the finish. So, even if the guy says really bad jokes, she’ll laugh about it. And if you fancy someone, it means you think they are attractive, you think that they are good looking. So, if you fancy someone, you might start flirting with them, for example. If you chat someone up, it means that, first of all, you find them attractive, you fancy them, and then you start talking to them, to try to make them fancy you. Now I think usually, traditionally, men chat women up. These days, women chat men up a bit as well, but traditionally it’s men who chat women up.
So, please leave a review saying how brilliant the podcast is, okay? B: Well, …[and then you talk about what you’ve been up to.] Okay? Now, I used some of these expressions in the feature section when I was talking about dating, okay? I’m going to explain some of those expressions for you now. First expression is a verb, and it’s ‘to flirt’, to flirt with someone, ‘to flirt’. So, to go out with someone just means to go on a date.
#1 Meet often, but not too often When you’re in young love, you’d want to spend every waking minute with your sweetheart. You were probably really excited at the beginning, but as the daily workout took more and more time out of your daily routine, you started getting annoyed by it. By meeting too often, you’re suddenly changing the lives of two individuals who have fallen in love.
It may feel great for the first week or so, but eventually your other commitments may pile up and one of you may end up getting annoyed with the other for taking too much time.
Um, you can, of course, find this podcast on i Tunes. So, she means I usually hate it when my friends put me on a blind date with someone. So, to go out with someone means to go on a date with them. So, all the guys I’ve gone on a date with recently have been unbelievably stupid. Okay, she said, ‘But I think you’re different though.’ But I think you’re different though. Okay, there she says, ‘well, touch wood.’ Now, to touch wood in England is a superstition. So, if you hope that something will happen or you hoped something is true, you touch wood like that. So, she’s saying ‘you’re not stupid like the other guys’. [23’56” Jangle playing] Okay, in English, there are numbers of expressions that we always use when we are talking about romantic relationships, boyfriends, girlfriends, and going on a date. And you really have to learn these expressions because people always use them when they are talking about this subject, okay? And there are typically things that man say when they chat women up. ’ or ‘hi, do you come here often’ or something like that.
So, I’m happy about that, very glad that it’s becoming so popular. [‘Up to’ means ‘doing’ actually.] B: Well, nothing. So let’s just quickly listen to some of the sketch again. So she says, ‘I’m so glad that Lisa set us up together,’ and he says, ‘me too.’ So, I’m so glad that Lisa, that’s her friend, set us up, that means arranged for us to meet. ‘I’m so glad that Lisa set us up together.’ ‘I’m so glad that Lisa arranged for us up to meet.’ And he said me too. So, your friends arrange for you to meet someone so that you’d become a pair, you’d become a partner. Now, a complete stranger is someone that you’ve never met before. The thing is all the guys I’ve been out with recently have been unbelievably stupid. Now, ‘the thing is’, that’s like saying, ‘the problem is,’ all the guys I’ve been out with recently. [23’24” Comedy sketch playing] Okay, so there it is. Now, in the next section – the language section, I’m going to teach you really useful expressions to talk about dating and relationships. ‘Oh, you’re so funny.’ And she might, for example, back her eye lids at him, or just act in a way that shows she really fancies him, she really likes him, okay? Guys when they flirt, they try to make girls laugh, they might try to show how strong they are, show off their muscles or something, so that’s flirting. And, so, for example, if a man sees a girl in a bar and he fancies her, he might walk over to her and start to chat her up.
When you’re having trouble finding a love connection, it’s all too easy to become discouraged or buy into the destructive myths out there about dating and relationships.As pee-inducing as a new relationship may be, you have to take it slow and play by the rules if you want to have a good relationship that can blossom over time into a perfect one.
