Sorry it was muddled.

step (ii) You tell her how sorry you are to have upset her so much and .......

........... step (iii) and suggest the following way to prevent a recurrance:

**you see her a lot more often**, spend hours getting to know what might upset her and what won't; then you won't make the same mistake again.

Is that her avatar or is it what she actually looks like?

Hard to tell if she likes maths. But I conclude that she likes you.

If I was your age I know which would make me happier.

I suggest you remove the image so the whole world cannot see it.

That's not her photograph. That's just a singer in our country (called "Shreya Ghosal") whom Aloka likes a lot. But Alokananda looks a lot more nice than "Shreya Ghosal"(i believe).

Thank You for your advice

You're welcome. Your comment doesn't change mine one bit. You are indeed a gentleman!

But rermove the pics anyway ... There's too much that should be private there.

I looked at the puzzle. There is a quick way to do it.

The quick way is given there

That is why I wanted to show it to her

So it is. I skimmed too quickly and missed that bit.

I removed the pictures

From another chat record it appears to me that she also doesn't like books.

Should I conclude that way?

step (iii) variant: you see her a lot more often, spend hours getting to know her.

To be honest, I cannot answer these questions. Girls are not like maths. The rules are different and may sometimes not exist.

I have to go now. Good luck!

I am reading the book which you suggested, now. It appears that it will help!

No don't do that. But do tell her you are reading it and, if she asks, tell her what it is about. If she does, she may then choose to read it too. important thing is: it's her choice.

It seems that I have completed Step (ii) and Step (iii)

Alokananda seems not much interested in our forum and even maths.

That is why she doesn't visit this website often

However, she was the only person who responded to my request of Signing Up

She is the best, I must agree

Or answering them.

Hmmm. Why would she be answering her own questions?

Knew a fellow like that. He would post and then answer it! Did it in his speech too. People did not like it and armed with abalone shells they chased him.

He climbed that tree and was never seen again.

So, Alokasarkar S. if you read this I say post a question and then answer someone else's.

This is the only Banyan tree I can remember bobbym posted of

Check the under the fig tree thread.
