Dan问：So what should I say?
King: Tell the truth! Say, "Hi Julie, I was wondering if you'd be interested in going out this Saturday? I know a great sushi place."
D: Just like that? Don't you think I'll scare her?
K: Both you and Julie are adults, and that's the way adults communicate with each other. If you're worried about being too direct, you should make it a group event and invite her along.
D: The whole process just seems so scary.
K: You know what's really scary? The idea that two people might be perfect for each other, but they're too afraid to talk to each other...now that's a frightening thought. What a waste!
D: That's a good point.
King建议Dan直截了当，约Julie出去吃饭，但如果Dan不想过于直接的话，可以 make it a group event and invite her along 组织一次集体活动，邀请Julie一起去。King 还鼓励Dan说，如果两个人原本珠联璧合 perfect for each other, 但却因为彼此不敢主动去跟对方搭讪而擦肩而过，那才是最可怕的。What a waste! 太可惜了。King 接着说，
K: What's the worst thing that could happen?
D: She rejects me.
K: And is that so bad?
D: No, I guess not. How do you meet your wife anyway?
K: I walked up to her on a subway car and said, "Hi, I'm King. What's your name?" Three years later we were married.
D: Wow! All right...I'm going to do it. I'm going to ask her out.
K: Well, here's your chance. She's started walking this way. Go for it!
如果Dan约Julie出去，最糟糕的结果也不过是遭到拒绝。King现身说法，说当年他就是在地铁上遇到自己太太的，他走上前去自我介绍，三年后两人就结婚了。Dan终于鼓起勇气，决定要约Julie出去，正说着，Julie走了过来，Here is his chance. 他的机会来了。我们一起听Dan是怎么说的。
D: Hey, Julie.
J: Hi Dan. How are you doing?
D: I'm good, thanks! Say, a couple of us are thinking about having dinner and maybe going to a Karaoke bar this Saturday night. Are you free to join us?
J: Sure! I'd love to. What time should I meet you?
D: How about 7:30?
J: Great! I'll see you then. Have a nice day, Dan! Bye!
D: You too! See you on Saturday!
K: See? That wasn't so hard, was it?
D: That was amazing! I'm totally on cloud nine right now! Thanks, dude!
K: No problem, and I hope it woks out for the two of you.
D: It's really true: "Nothing ventured, nothing gained!"
K: You got it!
Dan跟Julie说，办公室几个人星期六晚上打算一起出去吃饭，吃完饭去唱卡拉OK，问Julie想不想一起去，Julie欣然接受。Dan说，I'm totally on cloud nine. 我实在是太高兴了。King说，I hope it works out for the two of you. 意思是祝 Dan和Julie好运，能交往愉快。
