How would you react on a first date if you went back to your friend’s flat and found: porn magazines under the sofa, a kitchen full of dirty dishes, a large Alsatian dog, the whole flat immaculately clean and tidy, two children from a previous marriage, a large collection of opera CDs, lots of expensive antique furniture.

Would any of these put you off your new friend?

Would you be more attracted to him/her because of any of them?

1) Here are two letters to the “problem page” of a magazine. Work in pairs. Partner 1 reads Letter A, partner 2 reads Letter B. Retell the letters to each other.

A. Dear Betty, I’ve met this wonderful woman. She’s tall, beautiful, intelligent, charming – nearly everything a man could ever want. There’s only one problem. Every time she tries to kiss me I feel like being sick! At first I thought it was a passing thing – that maybe she just needed to brush her teeth more. Now I realize that this must be some kind of permanent condition. What do I do now? I can’t go on holding my breath (as I’m doing now) every time she leans over to kiss me. It’s getting to the point where I don’t even look in her direction when she talks to me! This is not your average morning-breath kind of smell – this is more like something has died inside her! What should I do? Thomas B. Dear Betty, I have one of the most thoughtful, kind, considerate men on the planet but he has this really disgusting habit that I can’t stand and I can’t decide how to tell him. Basically, the problem is he picks his nose. I don’t mind so much when we’re at home, alone, but when we’re in public, in a nice restaurant, or worse, at my parents’ house when we’re having dinner, I just want to disappear. He starts digging in and pulling things out and throwing them on the floor, or even worse, putting them in his pocket! And then afterwards when he wants to hold my hand or touch my face I avoid his advances – and of course he gets upset. I want to tell him about it because I don’t think he realises that he does it, but I’m afraid I’ll embarrass him and I don’t want to lose him. I mean, I don’t want to sound like I’m his mother. Please help. Emily

Did anything in the two letters make you laugh?

Which problem above did you think was worse?

What would you do in Thomas’s or Emily’s situation.

Imagine yourself to be an agony aunt expert, give an advice to Thomas/ Emily.

2) Answer the questions:

Do you ever read “Lonely Hearts” ads in the newspaper?

Do you eve look at “Lonely Hearts” websites?

Have you ever placed a “Lonely Hearts” ad in a paper or anywhere else? If so, what happened? Who replied? How did you follow it up? Was it a successful experience?

Have you ever replied to a “Lonely Hearts” ad? What happened?

Do you know anyone who has ever placed a “Lonely Hearts” ad or replied to one?

3) Read the passage and answer these questions:

What has the writer done?

Why has she done this?
