Jeff: “Yes, or no? I was initially attracted to you.” J: I don’t know. I think I’m supposed to meet somebody. Yeah. I look for… intelligence. Um… adventure, someone who’s adventurous. Uh… and someone who’s funny. (clap of the door) J: Hi!
Linda: Hi! L: Linda, nice to meet you.
J: I’m Jeff. J: Nice to meet you. L: (laughs)
J: Thanks for coming. L: Cool. Thanks!
J: (laughs) L: Thanks for… yeah, yeah!
Thanks for inviting me… what? (Laugh) J: Are you originally from LA?
L: No, I’m from Canada. J: Oh, where in Canada?
L: Vancouver. J: Oh nice, Vancouver is very nice.
L: Have you been? J: I have. It has really good
Cantonese food. L: Yes. J: Ladies first.
L: Oh, thank you! J: (laughs)
L: Yeah. L: “Never have I ever been
on a blind date.” L: Oh, lights. L: Wait — no!
J: (laughs) J: Besides this you have not been on a blind date? L: No, I’ve never been on a blind date.
Usually know everyone that I meet. J: Do you have any desire
to go on a blind date? L: I think so!
J: Oh, you do? L: Yeah, I like new experiences, so I think. L: “Never have I ever
given out a fake number.” J: (laughs) L: I really want to wait for your answer. (laughter) L: It’s not, it’s not good! But… J: Do you make up a fake number
each time, or do you have one? L: (laughs) I made up… (stutters) J: Like if I ask you right now
what your number was– J: –what would you say?
L: Um… L: …911 J: (laughs)
L: (laughs) I’m just kidding. J: “Never have I ever given up on
something I wish I hadn’t.” L: Huh.
J: (laughs) L: (laughs) J: Um… I think I’ve given up
on relationships… L: Hm… J: Um… and companies…
L: Mhm. J: Like ideas. L: Hmm. You think it was
too fast that you’ve given up on things? J: Yeah, I mean… I think that I am
impulsive sometimes. L: Hm.
J: I can be very impulsive… um… J: …but you don’t have anything? L: No. (laughs)
J: All right. That’s cool. L: Sorry, I can’t like relate? (laughs)
Just kidding! L: Oh, “Never have I ever been heartbroken.” L: Obviously!
J: (laughs) L: With the green…
J: Uh… L: Were you uh… young when it happened? Or-
J: What do you mean, I’m still young. L: Um … young as in like high school young? Or like- J: No, I’m very old, I’ve been
heartbroken many times. L: Oh!
J: No, I would say probably twice. J: Yeah, sucks.
L: How did you cope with that? J: Um… The first time I didn’t. J: I think I just buried it.
L: Mhm. J: And because of that experience,
the second time I think was much healthier. L: Mhm. J: So I was just like talking to people,
spending a lot of time, just thinking about it, praying about it. L: Hm…
J: What about you? L: Yeah, I’ve been heartbroken… Um…
It’s kinda one of those things where you think someone would be there
for the rest of your life, but they’re not. Nothing made sense. I was like,
“Wait– but could this work again” or… It’s always like those “What ifs”
but then with a lot of time it’s like “No– –things happen for a reason.” J: All right. “Never have I ever
wanted to be famous.” L: (snorking) L: Never– (laughs)
J: Why is… Why is that funny? (laughs) L: Fame as in like doing well, like being known for doing something good, is something I’ve always wanted to…
J: Ok. L: …be famous for. J: As a kid I really thought I could
become a pop star in Taiwan– L: Oh, wow. J: –because you know obviously
I speak English and– L: And you’re Taiwanese!
J: –and I’m Taiwanese, so… L: It’s works out. Do you sing too
or are you just kidding? J: Um, I feel like I sing well. I don’t know that other people would agree. L: Whoa! “Never have I ever
wondered how I will die.” L: Yeah, I’ve always wondered that. J: Okay, let’s say you had
the opportunity to know exactly how you would die and when…
L: Mhm. J: Would you want to know? L: Whoa… L: No, I wouldn’t want to know. J: Yeah, I wouldn’t either. L: because then I wouldn’t really live my life,
I don’t think. I’ll be like scared– –as in like I would… J: But then you could actually like
plan out the rest of your life, right? L: Yeah, but I feel like I wouldn’t– I don’t know. I wouldn’t… I don’t know. J: Yeah, I wouldn’t either.
L: Yeah. L: That’s an “I don’t know” question. J: “Never have I ever gone skinny-dipping.” L: Yeah um, I kinda wanted to…
but It’s just- it’s one of those things where, I don’t know, people talk about it, and it’s like “Yeah! It just sounds like
a bad idea to do, and you just do it anyways!” J: I’ve had no desire to go skinny dipping (laughs)
L: (laughs) L: You’re like, “I don’t wanna be cold!”
J: Although… J: I think if somebody
dared me to, I would do it. L: Yeah, so if I said I dare you
to skinny-dip? J: Then I would probably do it.
L: Cool. (laughter)
L: I’ll let you know. J: Yeah, next time… Next time
you need someone… to go skinny dipping. L: (laughs) J: Bonus…
“Yes, or no? I was initially attracted to you.” L: (laughs) L: And where is the button? J: I thought… “She looks really smart”. L: Wow, I’m so not.
That was like… you’re totally off. So I was attractive because I look smart?
That’s horrible! J: Well, no cause– what?
L: What? J: No, but I’m attracted to smart girls. So that’s actually a compliment. L: Uh yeah, I was like “Oh yeah.
I like your style and I like collar shirts”, so like “Oh, that’s attractive”. But if you wore something else.
I would’ve been like “Mm, I don’t know.” J: So really you like my clothes?
L: Yeah. J: But you don’t like me. L: Yes.
(laughs) Just kidding. Okay.
“Would you like to go on a second date?” J: (laughs) L: Yeah. L: That would be so sad if someone put “No”,
I feel like everyone would do “Yes”. J: No, not everyone would do “yes”. L: Oh, really?
J: Oh, you think people just lie? L: I feel like you’re lying. (awkward laughter) J: But I’m such an honest person. J: I think… J: …this was a very interesting conversation.
L: Yeah, I think so! J: That’s why I said “yes”. L: High five! You did well. J: So did you. L: Okay.
J: (snorking) (laughter)
J: Why are you laughing? L: I laugh a lot. I get…
I laugh when I’m nervous.
