為了參加toastmaster的 Inhouse Speech Contest, 苦惱了許久,

我得坦承自己是辦事效率不佳,老是趕在關門前把一隻腳卡進門的人

原先抱著既然是第二次上場的新人一枚,不需太認真的心態

但得知老師也將出席當日meeting,一整個著急

一來老師是club裡的role model

二來講不好又要被念到頭皮發麻

我很認真的思考了題目,並做了相關資料搜尋



此文參考女王的「為什麼他交不到女友」,再加上自己對週遭單身男士們的看法

為的是博君一笑,還好當天的meeting笑的人還真不少

以下為2月18日我參加toastmaster Inhouse Speech Contest的講稿


- -

During the Chinese New Year, I had dinner with my male friend, Steve, a wealthy engineer in 

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company(台機電). During our conversation, he kept 

complaining about his singleness and the difficulty of getting a girlfriend. Here’s what he said, 

“I don’t get it. I was graduated from the best university in Taiwan and now work in the company 

that plenty of men desire to get in. I’ve got a cool vehicle and good taste of living quality. Why 

my single life just never ends?” 



Well, I felt quite sympathetic over what Steve has been suffering. It seems that he missed the 

golden age a 28-year-old young man should enjoy in. I try to make a SWOT analysis for him but 

first, let’s see why he doesn’t have a girlfriend. My dear fellow members, if you are suffering 

from the same problem my friend Steve does, hope today’s speech may do a little help to you.



First of all, “you’re not charming!” 

The definition of “charm” from my Oxford English-Chinese dictionary is the power or quality of 

delighting, and arousing admiration.
Sure if you’re lucky enough to have a cute face or nice body 

shape, you are on the half way of success. However, in my point of view, to define if a man is 

charming or not, it has nothing to do with his out looking, but something to do with his talents 

and confidence. There’s a saying, “men are visualist while women are sensualist.” What we 

care about more is whether or not you’ve got something. For example, if you’re good at singing, 

then show how well you can sing. If you know a lot about music, then introduce us some pieces 

of fine music. If you travel a lot, then congratulations! Women love stories. In short, to catch a 

woman’s eye, please make a list writing down your talents and your strong virtues. Be confident 

about yourself and I believe, you’ll become a Mr. Charming.



Second, “ MSN is the accomplice of your misery.” 

In fact, MSN is the most useful media to get closer with a woman. I’ll call MSN one of the smartest 

technical inventions because it shortens the distance between you and me. Without the heart-

breaking phone bill, you may chat with your friends as much as you like. However, the water that 

floats the boat can also sink the boat. 


MSN chatting strategy No.1-- Don’t be pushy. 

No matter how much you like the girl, try not to reply immediately but keep your words at 

least for 1 minute. If the girl has special feelings to you, she will show her enthusiasm
.


Strategy No. 2 -- Don’t use too much emoticons.
 

Few emoticons arouse amusement during the conversation. But too many icons just make you 

childish. As a ripe man, please show your maturity. 

Strategy No. 3 -- Don’t keep talking about the same thing every time you chat. 

Try to observe what the girl interested in and have various discussions every time you talk to her. 

It shows your profundity and might have the girl’s admiration.



Why don’t you have a girlfriend? Reason 3, "You’re penny-pincher." 

Although a ticket for a movie isn’t a big deal for women nowadays, buying her a dinner or a 

movie is a very basic manner to show your chivalry. Unless the girl suggests that you go 

Dutch, please be gentle enough to let her know your sincerity. You can watch every single 

penny after you get married, but before this, don’t hasten to show your natural character. 



Last but not least, "You are over-idealistic." 

This is the main reason causes my friend Steve’s singleness. He has set a high criteria for his 

Miss Right. He wants someone who is as charming as 林志玲, as smart as me and the girl has 

to be independent enough because he will spend most of his time in his office. Oh, and also, D cup 

is on the list of the criteria too. My dear friends, please face the REALITY ! This is exactly too much! 

If you have the same illusion as Steve does, sincerely, I suggest you, please modify them a little bit. 

You are looking for a Miss Right, not a Miss Perfect!



At the end of our conversation, Steve promises to adjust his behavior and modify his criteria. 

However he still keeps complaining about his unpopularity on MSN almost everyday to me. 

Well, it seems there’s still long way to go before he finds a girl who would like to share his life. 



I really hope that all the single members may get your Miss Right very soon.

話說文中的Steve是真有其人

單身一事屬實

但對話內容純屬虛構

希望史提芬先生看到別罵我
