Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

You can't. She is the only one who can help her.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I heard that some people just talk to them normally as if nothing happened. Do you think that is possible in my situation? I highly doubt she will bring up the rejection if I did...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

You have trouble talking to them when you are in an ordinary situation. What the heck can you say in a strained one?

What will you say? What if she ignores you?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I may say "Hey, how did your results day go?" because, for all I know, she could have done so badly she has to re-sit her year.

If she ignores me? Hmm. But if I come and sit down in front of her, how can she ignore me?

For some reason I have yet to actually pass C while walking through the school, it is only in the ICT area (where 'the door' is) that I see her.

I did notice that, around August 16th, when I texted C to ask her how her results day went, she did not respond. But also, some of my friends didn't respond either. So it could be that C did not want to reply, because she did not do well.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Think about it. If someone says they will talk to you in September and it is June, do they really want to talk to you? To be your friend?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Well, it was July, the end of term when she said that (when school had finished). Her exact text was, I believe:

"I'll see you after the summer hols!"

(in other words, September 6th)

But then again we both know how awkward it is. Of course there are some solutions to this problem for her. Two of them are to either; a) Avoid contact with me and try to forget about me, or b) Continue talking to me as if nothing happened. I think most people would be inclined to go with the former option.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that PJ is interacting with me still, even after she ignored my e-mail (possibly out of spite). She asked for help on a phrase in chemistry (electrode potentials, specifically she asked what 'S.H.E.' was and why it was important).

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, but C has obviously chosen option a.

You were given the brush off. She put you off for more than a month. You are not important to her. Why not just forget her as she is trying.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Okay. But, ideally to do that I'd have to not see C at all. But the thing is, we both hang out in the same room (it's a bit like a common room/ICT/lunch area), and I'm not going to leave my friends for C's sake. Sooner or later we will bump into one another and it might be unavoidable.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

You bump into a lot of people, everyone does. Say excuse me and move on. How tough is that?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I guess that sounds pretty straightforward... do you think by now though she has the impression that I'm hurt by her rejection? Would saying 'excuse me' while passing her without speaking to her directly indicate that?

No, just say it with no expression. The way you would say it to a stranger.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Then speak to her. Show no animosity or anger over the rejection. It is 10 to 1 that she will not speak to you.

What do I do if she talks about me asking her out? I know it is unlikely but it has happened to me before.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

If she is that open with you then talk to her about it. Again, it is 10 to 1 against.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I find it really hard to talk openly about my feelings for someone, especially when it is to the person I had feelings for. Well, I can do it, my voice just cracks more than usual and I swallow a lot... she would detect this very easily.

What can you do about it? You can speak to her or not. Since she will not speak to you I do not think it is worth worrying about.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Okay. Still wonder who exactly she has told though. Before C came, her friend was looking at me every now and then (well, she might have been looking at the door, waiting for her interview, not sure). And when C came I saw her say something quietly to her friend. I do not know if it was about me.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

You are watching them way too much. They can detect that. Do not pay any attention to them at all.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

She was sitting in the line of sight of my friend. Anything that is in my line of sight, I notice. If there are three windows open and two closed, with one of the blinds pulled down halfway, then that is something I take note of. I cannot help it.

You can turn your head away from that or stare past her. I do not think that is a good situation for you with her.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I wasn't even looking at her, I just saw her in my peripheral vision. My eyes were always directly looking at my friend.

In fact, when C sat on that table, I turned my chair slightly to the left (as much as the table would allow) so C was almost on a 180 degree bearing relative to me. To not see her in my peripheral vision I would have to physically block it with an object or close my right eye.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Her peripheral vision is better than yours. Your mind is concentrating on her that is why you are seeing her. Try not to even notice her. Your mind controls what your eyes see.
