Band 8 Sample
(When it was) Right now, I’d like to share with you one of my biggest problems whenever I go on a date with someone – boredom. Some time ago, during Lunar New Year to be exact, I tried seeing a guy who I find the most boring individual on Earth.
(Who you were with) I matched this guy on Tinder, which was my maiden Tinder experience. Having read his profile, I could know this guy is definitely not a catfish but rather a well-educated boy who seemed to be a person I could talk to. However, he was just too shy to initiate a conversation and I had to continuously asked questions until I ran out of ideas.
(What you did) All of our dates were movie sessions rather than talk time. After movies, we would just head out for dinner and drinks in which both of us hardly cast a glance at each other while we spent most of our time keeping eyes glued to screen, literally without knowing what to talk to each other.
(And explain why you were bored) I would say that the lack of connection between us was the cause of the boredom. Also, there was no chemistry between us. I expected him to be a lot more active as he had seemed to talk a lot in chat, but the way he turned out left me quite disappointed.
