### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Do you think I am too young to be thinking about these things? I only turned 17 a few months ago, I haven't even passed my driving test yet or done lots of other things.

Hmm... a third party doesn't sound right to me, I always prefer to ask someone out face-to-face. It hasn't worked yet but I would have thought that they're more likely to take you seriously if you do it yourself?

Hi;

I do not know what the correct age is for that. I guess that depends on you and of course your parents. What do they think of your plans?

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

My parents don't know. But every so often they ask if I have a girlfriend and I tell them I don't. At one point they thought I wasn't straight. If I entered a relationship I'd wait a bit before telling them anything.

Okay, again that is personal decision you have to make.

Not all dates lead to relationships. Most relationships do not make it passed the first date. How about just something casual?

Coffee, skating, a walk in a park, dancing, visiting a museum or a landmark, walking around a lake etc.

Oh, I thought you meant something else. That sounds okay, I guess I could use that to judge where I'm at and if I want to take things further.

Why not try that first. Most people will not turn down what they think is an interesting activity with someone they know is okay.

Do you think I should ask her if she wants to go for a coffee sometime? We've never actually hung out before.

Only one way to really know for sure, you have to ask.

I think I will wait a bit before asking her. It wasn't long ago that I was rejected by the other girl so I don't want that to be influencing what I do too much.

Okay.

I feel like I am becoming too distracted. I have 20 exams in May-June which I should be preparing for. I hope this girl doesn't hinder that...

Wait until after. If you are not terribly interested in her then you can definitely wait.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

See you later.

I think I might be able to handle it along with revision. But I want to wait to see how she responds to different ways I talk to her first, because I just have the feeling that it'll be another quick rejection (which I'm okay with - but if you try, you may as well calculate your chances of success first).

This is not a FFT. Calculating and computation are for mathematics. It is easy to get caught up in it but math is a microworld.

Ever hear of the story of Johannes Kepler? It is said that he used math to decide between 1 of 12 choices of wives. He picked the absolute worst one.

In the immortal words of Obi Wan, "trust the force Luke!" Here we use psychology and gamesmanship to outsmart the fairer gender. We are forced to do this, if we do not confuse them they would never go out with us. We do not use Runge Kutta.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Sorry, calculate was probably the wrong word. 'Judge' was probably better. I could discover through conversation that she thinks I'm ugly or smelly, in which case I wouldn't want to date her.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

If she thinks you are ugly and smelly she might want to marry you! Have you ever seen what some girls consider cute or hot? Just take a look at what they date...

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I guess I'm just looking at the negatives a bit too much I suppose. If I had to think of any reasons why of the 6 girls I've asked none have gone out with me, they'd probably have (partially, at least) something to do with my appearance.

Surely is a girl thinks that you are smelly and ugly she would not want to marry you, though?

Some like rough, masculine guys. Some like musicians. Some like gangsters, some like nerds, some like rich guys, some like bums. There is just no way to determine how her brain will interpret you. Only 6, that is pretty good.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Something about her makes me feel that she would like another kind of guy. I saw her looking at the cover of a magazine once and noting that a guy in it was attractive... he was one of those bleached-hair guys in a rock band with piercings. That's the complete opposite of me.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Well, I'm not certain. I don't know for sure. But apparently the features I have are generally the least appealing, a few girls have told me why. I suppose if I just get the opportunity I'll ask her but I doubt I would be what she is looking for.
