0 comments
Writing better e-mails:
Don't use informal language with people you don't know.
Use emoticons


NATALIA

Dear Amy,

Don't worry!!!. When you saw Blake after class he had just to hurry to take the bus. That's all. You know that he lives far away and there aren't so many buses going to his neighborhood. He must have been very busy with the exams lately.  
Be patient. Just wait that he calls you back!
We will talk tomorrow after class!!
See you soon :)

Tony.

Hey Amy,

I am sorry to hear this news, I think You should try to talk him other time. If he continues with this attitude, you must forget him. Perhaps He isn´t your
soulmate. He is very insensitive if he don´t want to talk with you one minute. There are a lot of interesting men in your class, perhaps if you talk with other
man he become jealous. Good luck!!

Greetings
Tony


Dear Amy Karlson,

I read your email, I suggest you that You may not pressure some men, because there are a lot of men that They don´t react well to these ways. You should
take it easy these relationships and don´t fall head over heels. You should try to find some man similar you, Someone that are looking for a serious relationship.
I think if you follow my advices You probably find what you are searching.

Cordially

Dear Mrs. Karlson,



Welcome to my column. My piece of advice to you is to calm down. At the beginning, couples usually have a good start because everything is new and both of you feel very excited. But after a few months, things sometimes can change. In that moment, if you see that things are not working out, you should give to your partner his own private space and so do you. Maybe, you should not push him trying to talk with him every second of the day. It is better to take things slowly and not to force them, because if he is your soulmate, sooner or later he will find out.



Sincerely,



Dr. Dating.

Hi Amy!
I’m sorry you feel so bad. Probably Blake’s thinking about if he wants to go out with you or not, so you cannot miss any opportunity. First of all stop to call him. Second you must be as pretty as you can in every moment. And third try to look nice but not too interested on him. Wave him everyday with a smile, but you must be the “busy” person, the one who cannot stay since have a lot of things to do or persons to meet. He will call back soon. You’re going to see.


E-mail to Amy Karlson
From doctordating

Dear Amy
To find someone to love and to be loved by is not easy. At the beginning of a relationship everything seems to be special, but after a few time things change, defects comes out from both and the relationship stops to be as special as it seemed before. At that moment is time to analyse by everyone if the person and the relationship worth enough to fight for it. People usually need space and time to analyse such a thing and maybe so many notes, e-mails or calls makes feel the other part too pressed.
You should try to relax and enjoy each moment with your partner, without thinking in the future, and without pressure. If it doesn’t work maybe he’s not the right men for you.
Sincerely

Dr. Dating

Hey Amy,

Don´t think all men are like Blake. Sooner or later you´ll find the right one.;-)
I don’t think Blake deserve all your efforts to get close to him. Let him go! Perhaps when he realize you aren´t interested in him at all he would tried to get back to you.

Give him time! Don´t worry.

See ya!
David



E-mail to Amy Karlson

Dear Amy,

Have you ever think you ask too much of your partners from the beginning? Try to rise up your relationship together with the other person. Perhaps they have felt overwhelmed. You must let the relationship flow and you will see it will rise strong and healthy.

Sincerely,

David

Present and Past Unreal Conditionals

0 comments
Unreal conditionals are used to talk about situations that are improbable, imaginary, or past events that never occurred.

Second conditional is used to talk about situations in the future that have a probable or improbable chance of happening (10% chance).  For example if I say: If I would go to Rome, I could have an audience with the Pope.  There is a probability that I could go to Rome, but an audience with the Pope is highly improbable, but not impossible, it could happen.

Second Conditional

Format

Condition
Result clause

past conditional
would + base form of the verb
If
I went to Rome
I would have an audience with the Pope.
If
I had a million dollar salary
I would buy a Mansion in New York.

You can also start with the result clause
Result clause

Condition
would + base form of the verb

past conditional
I would have an audience with the Pope.
If
I went to Rome
I would buy a Mansion in New York.
If
I had a million dollar salary


Third conditional is used to talk about situations in the past that have 0% probability of happening, because they depend on a condition in the past changing and that can't happen.


Third Conditional

Format

Condition
Result clause

past perfect
would + past participle
If
I had gone to Rome
I would have had an audience with the Pope.
If
I had had a million dollar salary
I would have bought a Mansion in New York.

or 
Result clause

Condition
would + past participle

past perfect
I would have had an audience with the Pope.
If
