I'm not really needy. It's just that I have nothing interesting to say most of the time which leads to awkward pauses when I'm with her. If we have some similar interests then that would make it easier for me to keep the convos smooth.
why does she need to study english, is it part of your course. maybe you can find out what she likes and pretend to be interested in it too
Me and her are doing upgrading. We are basically in the same boat. She didn't get a good enough grade in high school so she had to do upgrading. Same with me. I couldn't care less when I was in high school. Doing upgrading will benefit me more though since that would prepare me for my first year.
