Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

A math groupie?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

A loyal fan of mathematicians. They can be obsessive and usually latch on to them.

You're saying she latched on to me?

No, but that is what a math groupie would do. I know one.

What was the guy she liked interested in?

Yea, the guy she was dating in Cyprus.

Some institute for technology, so it may have been maths-related.

I do hope she hasn't met someone up at Warwick...

Probably. But hopefully nothing major...

It's been almost a year since I saw her. Wonder what she looks like.

Hard to say until you see her.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

She uploaded a picture of herself a couple of months ago -- no change.

If I do get an opportunity this time, I'll try not to pass it up. I had an opportunity 10 months ago to be with her. This might be my last chance.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Those type of girls are the most alluring and also the most dangerous to one's own well being. Keep that in mind and use your head. Nowhere is detachment more important than right now. Keep your head clear and your emotions in check.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

What is a math groupie? Is it related to Group theory?

The term originated with musicians but has since gone over to other groups as well.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I keep thinking that I have to be detached. But it's incredibly tempting to do the opposite. I mean, I rarely ever talk to women, much less hug them. I savour the time I spend with them a little more because of that.

She says she would love to watch that movie with me again. Perfect.

Thank you.

I hope that her putting her relationship status as single was not incorrect information, or worse -- a trap.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Probably not a trap, just that they never really can make up their minds about an ex and often take them back.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That worries me, too. I still don't know how appropriate it would be for her to be my GF, if the opportunity arose. I'd hate to be cheated on, although I guess it happens to everyone at some point. But as we said, detachment has to be practiced first before one can become confident with it -- to do otherwise would be like learning to swim by reading an instruction manual.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I do not know if she wants to be your gf. I think she would be a poor gf at best but who really knows? I just think you should get fair treatment and fair payment for anything she asks you for.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That really does not matter. Fair treatment is often related to how much respect you give the other person.
