完美的约会啊?要有烛光晚餐呀。 要有玫瑰花呀。 然后,对面的那个人一定要 这是最主要的。

A perfect date? It should be a candlelight dinner. There should be roses. And the guy that sits opposite me must be good lookingThat's the most important thing.

Interviewee #3 :

完美的约会应该是... 男生先提前到场地 然后等好...等到女生 然后两个人再去看一场电影 然后看完电影结束之后,再去吃一个晚饭 这是一个最基本的。然后晚饭结束呢,可以去公园散散步,这样子。已经很完美了。

wán měi de yuē huì yīng gāi shì... nán shēng xiān tí qián dào chǎng dìrán hòu děng hǎo... děng dào nǚ shēngrán hòu liǎng gè rén zài qù kàn yī chǎng diàn yǐngrán hòu kàn wán diàn yǐng jié shù zhī hòu, zài qù chī yī gè wǎn fànzhè shì yī gè zuì jī běn de. rán hòu wǎn fàn jié shù ne, kě yǐ qù gōng yuán sàn sàn bù, zhè yàng zi. yǐ jīng hěn wán měi le.

A perfect date should be... The guy should arrive to the date spot first. Then he waits for the girl to arrive. Then they go watch a movie together. Then, after watching the movie, they go for dinner. This is the basic stuff. Then, after dinner, they go for a walk in the park. Something like that. That's already perfect.
