955 - Dating a Possessive Person

December 13th, 2013

Episode 10 of 462 episodes

If you have a jealous boyfriend of girlfriend, they probably won’t want you to listen to this. Improve your English and your relationship by listening to it anyway. Slow Dialog: 1:25 Explanations: 3:34 Fast Dialog: 18:08 Eliana: You’re here! I didn’t think you’d be able to come. Matt: Why? I like seeing a movie with my friends as much as the next guy. Eliana: Yeah, but it’s been weeks since we’ve seen you, ever since you started dating Helen. Matt: She doesn’t own me. She’s a little possessive, but I put my foot down when she gets too clingy. Eliana: Doesn’t she get jealous if you so much as look at another woman? Matt: She’s the jealous type, that’s true, but I reassure her all the time that she’s the only one I want. It’s true that she’s critical of other women, too, but what woman isn’t? She’s fine if she knows where I am and whom I’m with. Eliana: You mean you have to report in to her on your whereabouts? Matt: She likes to know what I’m doing. She’s just concerned about me, that’s all. Eliana: She seems really controlling. Matt: What did you say? Eliana: Nothing. I see Xavier and Sophie over there. Ready to get our tickets? Matt: Hold on one second. I just need to text Helen an update. If she doesn’t hear from me every half hour, she worries. Isn’t that sweet? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
