It was the last day of the year long time ago. I spent the day with my close friends in one the house of one of them. In the evening we went to a very cozy restaurant to meet some girls to welcome the coming new year. While talking, it was clear for me that one of my friend was very interested in one of the girls. He kept talking to her and complementing this and that while complementing is not the thing he liked to do. The interest was, unfortunately for my friend, not balanced. The girl seemed to take some distance by giving short answers or responses. She only thanked shortly on the compliments. However, she also asked questions like she wanted to know whether it would be worth it to give my friend a try.
Just 5 minutes before the change of the year, we talked about our hobbies. The girl that my friend was interested in said that she found guys liking to do sports interesting. That led to jokes on me made by my friends as they knew how anti I was (and I still am!) on doing sports. In the middle of laughing, she out of the blue asked my friend whether he was interested in any kind of sports. We, the guys, smiled a lot when he said 'yes' as he was in a good agreement with my attitude on doing sports. The girls did not catch the situation among the boys. That specific girl continued the question by asking what kind of sport that my friend did. He said he liked the simplest one: running.
We went home in the next day as we did our new year celebration somewhere else until morning. On our way home, we asked my friend why he lied by saying he liked to do running. He laughed and said, "Well, I like running from the reality. I consider it as a good sport." Oh! This is a photo showing some men running. I took it during the #EindhovenMarathon last month. 📷: #NikonD3400 . #onzetrots#snapseed#onsbrabant#nikonnl#nikoneurope
