On Saturday night, Chris met his friends John and Anthony at 7.00. They wore Chelsea t-shirts. Before the football game, they went for dinner in an Italian restaurant. The friends ate pizza and drank beer, and they talked non-stop about girls and football. After that, they went to the stadium and they watched the football game. Because their team lost, they only had one drink and then they went to the disco. The men had a lot fun and danced for a long time. As they drank a lot, they went home by taxi. After this boys’ night out, they finally got home at 2.00.

Love is a problem, but that doesn’t mean that your love life is over!
Don’t search for the love of your life, you will get together some way!
Having love problems is a normal part of life.
Finding your love isn’t hard, just be yourself.
You just have to wait.
If you don’t feel loved, you’re lying to yourself.
If your relationship isn’t working, end it.
Love goes together with madness… SO DON´T DO ANYTHING STUPID!
Love is as simple as 1+1, people only make it more complicated.
Perfect relationship is made of honesty and kindness.
Jorge S., Leonardo A.

Be crazy sometimes.
Don’t think too much.
Go to the beach.
Everything’s going to be okay in the end but if it’s not it is not the end.
Call a friend.
Think outside of the box.
