I normally meet my friends on the weekends at a cafe beside our workplace it is very near to the beach, they offer excellent drinks in there.But the disadvantage of this cafe is always crowded.

I usually meet my friends on weekends at their homes or we plan for picnic to a park, we do not meet at a cafe very often because I get allergy from smoking. I meet them at about a quarter to eleven or eleven thirty, so we can enjoy our time.

I´m not accustomed to text to my friends, only when it is necessary. And when I do, I typically try of sending the message complete instead of typing messages like: "ok", "btw", "IDK" and things like those. It might be because of I´m not a teenager, or I´m not too virtual guy or something like that.

Yes, I definitely agree. Those exercises demand too much at the time of analyzing the statements when they are or not true.

I don't often meet friends, unfortunately, because I work and live in another city. When I lived in my hometown, we almost always met every day before 6 p.m.
