Yes, living in London is expensive, but the solution is as easy as ABC, you just move out of London and decide to live in the country... I always love country side. I hate big cities like London or Tokyo. I prefer to live in Ladakh, in India, for example.

when olivia said " not very sensitive,harry " she wanted to say he was not understanding sarah's feeling. Didn't she?

Hi mina66,

Yes, that's right!

Living is London may cost you an arm and a leg... Situation in Tokyo is the same, that's reason why I live in Saitama, 50km north of centre of Tokyo, it's convenient enough since I can take a train to go to Tokyo in an hour.

Can you explain to me the sentence " I like to keep them keen", please? Thanks

Hello NNK,

'keen' means 'very interested'. Fadi is trying to justify why his relationships only last a short time by saying that he is only interested in women who are very interested in him.

Thank you very much!

Thank you so much :)

I want to know what this sentence means...And They only ever last for two weeks..

Hello Asina,

Magda is saying that Fadi has girlfriends for a short time (two weeks). 'last' means something like 'continue'.
