Two “Ge” (Of) Boyfriends

I (have) had two “ge” (of) boyfriends. The first “ge” (of) boyfriend with me (is) the same (years-)old, he last-name-is Zhang. Little Zhang is (one) “ge” (of) very famous athlete, he is tall and also handsome, (and he was) also good treating me, I loved him much, he too loved me much. But (in the) time (that is) after being-together (for) one year, we broke up, because he had very many competitions, (and he) was usually not free. So (at) that time, I usually had to (by my)self (as) one single person eat meals, (as) one single person go to the mall to buy stuff, (as) one single person watch movies, (as) one single person go to the hospital... Though this was not Little Zhang’s fault, but being together (like) this (for) long, I (was) more and more tired, our relationship too (was) more and more having-problems.

(In the) time (that is) after breaking up with Little Zhang, there was one time when I (as) one single person went travelling, (I) met one “ge” (of) boy, he exactly was my second boyfriend, Little Gao. Little Gao “comparing with” me (is) two years older, his height “comparing with” Little Zhang (is) a few centimeters shorter, (he) grows(/looks) probably not as handsome as Little Zhang, but he (is) even better treating me “comparing with” Little Zhang. We often together make meals, drink coffee, listen to music… Being together we have conversations (that) are not able to be finished talked. (After) having Little Gao, I feel (that) life (is) more fun, I too (am) more happy (now).

Now, Little Gao already is not my boyfriend (already). Why? Because he already is my husband (now).
