Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Oh yes, that goes without saying.


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

Most girls I've met seem to disagree. Then again, that is completely understandable.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I would say most like the option of playing the feminine card whenever they need it and this is a nice advantage but overall it does not balance the game.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I agree -- at least, if the game is balanced, then it hasn't appeared that way from my experiences.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

In the dating game they have the advantage but it is so easy to neutralize much of that advantage and they play so badly that I would give men the edge there too.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

How? Seems like it takes several years to finally get a feel for the 'game'. It seems like the average Joe (or at least, the below average Joe) doesn't consider it to be easy to neutralise their advantage.

Remember the lists of things to do. You only have to become a good talker, or a good dresser or a bodybuilder to make them completely lose their ability to reason.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I think I am alright at the first one but hopeless at the other two. Trouble is, the first takes a lot of practice, and when you haven't done it for a while, you can become pretty terrible at it and it really does show -- especially during this time of year, when I can just feel the cobwebs growing over my vocal chords.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is because you have failed to understand what I meant by a good talker. You are speaking from the heart, that is not what beguiles them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Sincerity and truthfulness and yes, integrity are not what they want to hear. It is part of an image, one that I am afraid you will not yet use and without it will have quite poor results.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Because they mistake it for weakness and they despise weakness. They do not recognize that integrity is strength. We talked about how improving your image and there are dozens of ways to do this pays off big with them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That seems to be true. Can't ever see myself being a 'bad guy' though, or at least exhibiting some of those other qualities you mentioned. One of my supervisors at uni said to me "hey, you can still be a loser like me and end up reasonably successful." (He's a maths academic/lecturer.) He's only 10-12 years older than me, but I can see myself being in that position at some point.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Your supervisor forgot to mention that everybody is reasonably successful at this game. There are a lot of fish in the sea and some are bound to be caught.

If you are satisfied with working on the ones that like you first ( and we discussed this ) then you will do okay. This will require some sense of detachment.

To play the game well requires you to utilize the same weaknesses that they exploit all the time. Ever hear them talk about guys when they do not know you are listening? They think we do not have a brain. A little perfume, a curvy body, a nice flirtatious smile and they know they have got any guy under control.

Funny thing is although they know how to do this they do not realize when it is being done to them!

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I don't know how to exploit that, though. If I have a general idea of how to do it, I can't do that either. I try to be a good talker but it just doesn't work -- yesterday I approached some girl standing on her own before an exam asking her about how she was feeling, what she was doing, etc. but she kept leaving me short and the conversation was one-sided. Wasn't long before her friends came along and started speaking in another language that I decided to accept my failure. I've lost count of how many times this has happened this year.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

There were only three people in the room -- some guy, me, and the girl -- so I talked to her. There wasn't anything particularly enticing about her. Maybe English not being her first language had something to do with it (she was Chinese I believe).

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That may have been a factor. It was a casual encounter so why even worry about it? As a general rule do not approach until you receive some signal from them.

But I can't do that, because they never give any signals to me. If I just waited for that, then nothing will happen, and I will still lose.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It is better to wait till you have a signal  to approach. If you do not get a signal you have little chance.
