Yep, those are her favourite.

I just hope there isn't anything crazy going on at her house or anything. Like her boyfriend waiting for me with a sledgehammer.

A sledgehammer? Don't be ridiculous, he would probably have a really large knife.

You should make that decision based on what you know about her not based on something unreal.

Well, the logical side of me is telling me that this meeting will be very much like the other three -- so there is no real point in going. I don't even know why she didn't discard me in the first place -- surely there are plenty of better candidates at her uni?

What good will analyzing this before it even happens do? The reason for the non-result the last 3 times was because of you. You said so yourself. You will do better this time.

That is a good point, why? She obviously wants something from you. That puts you in the drivers seat. If you just make up your mind to extract payment for whatever it is she wants you both will be satisfied at the end of this.

This is the barter system, if you do not ask for anything that is what you are going to get.

The only way I can get some idea of what she wants is by going down there. But I'm not sure if it will be like the last times we met up. Maybe since she hasn't seen me for a year there won't be as many 'intimate encounters' as before. Do you think it's worth asking her if we'll be alone when we meet?

You can work the question into the conversation by asking if you will get a chance to see her Mom etc.

Oh, I don't mind if her Mum/sister are there, the house is big and there'll be a places for us to be alone together. But if lots of her family are there, that's probably pretty unlikely...

Hopefully we'll watch the movie in her bedroom.

Just try to have a good time. Just relax and you will.

I still kept all of the e-mails she sent me. We used to e-mail each other 60-70 times per day -- how times have changed. I do wonder if something will be re-ignited when we meet.

That seems a bit obsessive. Why keep them? Certainly do not tell her that.

Okay, but as I said do not tell her that.

She's probably freak out if I told her that...

Exactly, or it would give her a big head.

She would know that you are are infatuated with her. They get mean when they know you like them.

But doesn't she already know that?

Yep, because you were too obvious about it.

But something must have gone somewhat right if I am getting a 4th chance.

That is correct but you want to eliminate mistakes. Not everyone gives 4 chances.

That's true. I truthfully had just 3 -- if I didn't contact Adriana recently, I never would have spoken to her again...
