A: Hi Kara, it's Mike here.

B: Hi Mike, how are you doing?

A: I'm doing well, and you?

B: Everything is going great.

A: Kara, would you be interested in going to dinner again this Friday?

B: Mike, I had a good time too, but I am getting ready to move back to the east coast, so I think I shouldn't get too involved right now.

A: Well, we could just go out as friends.

B: Right now, I think I need to really focus on matters at home, but thanks for a nice evening.


A: Hi Kara, this is Mike

B: Hello Mike. How are things going for you?

A: Great, how are you?

B: Fine. Everything is just fine.

A: Kara, I had a great time the other night and was wondering if you would like to go out again this weekend.

B: Mike, I enjoyed your company, but I am getting ready to graduate soon. I really need to focus on my studies.

A: Maybe I could help you with what you need to get done.

B: It would be better for me to just deal with getting my work done, but thank you for a lovely dinner.


A: Hello, this is Mike, Kara.

B: Mike! Good to hear from you. How are you?

A: Everything is fine, and how are you?

B: Things are going well with me.

A: Kara, I had fun the other night at the movies and was wondering if you would like to go out again this Friday.

B: Mike, I don't think that it's a good idea to go out again. I really need to focus on getting packed and ready to move back home.

A: Maybe we could just meet for coffee or something.

B: I can't really deal with any distractions right now, but I appreciate the nice evening we spent together.
