Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! You're in the middle of a restaurant, and you're with your girlfriend's family having dinner. Her parents know, but little does your girlfriend know, that you are about to ask her a very important question in Japanese. After you enjoy your entrée but before dessert arrives, you tell your girlfriend in Japanese, "Come and dance with me." Your girlfriend looks all around and says, "But no one else here is dancing." You implore your girlfriend in Japanese, "Come on…I need to get away from your family for a minute, and the band is playing my favorite song." She reluctantly agrees after you tell her in Japanese, "It's just one song…two minutes…you can do it." At the end of the song, the leader of the band passes you a microphone, and you get down on your knees and tell the other diners in Japanese, "Tonight, I'm going to tell you about the love of my life. When she first smiled at me, I fell in love with her." After you spend another minute declaring your love in Japanese, you bend to your knee and propose. As she accepts the ring and applause breaks out, your girlfriend whispers in your ear in Japanese, "I'm glad you convinced me to dance!"
