John: OK, so when the guy comes back from his date, um, his friend asks him about it, right?

Dilu: 对,他的兄弟说那女孩长得怎么样,长得怎么样

John: Yeah, so this is a question that I think takes some time to get used to when you're talking about what someone looks like. We use this word 长,right?

Dilu: 对,长,第三声

John: OK, so 长得怎么样 means what do they look like

Dilu: 嗯,是的

John: And the answer in this case is...

Dilu: 你可以说长得不怎么样,长得不怎么样

John: So, an ugly girl is a dinosaur

Dilu: 对,哈哈哈,然后长得比较难看的男生就是青蛙

John: Frog
