«I remember a wonderful moment, you appeared before me ..» — you admit the girl in love and her eyes shine with pleasure and surprise.
«Let’s sign a contract profitable for both of them» — you tell the partners and the deal is well concluded.
«I think I can be of use to your company» — you will say at the interview — and successfully pass it.
