Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, based on only those three girls being your chances. You have a probability of 4 / 7 of going out with her.


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

I meant that with Melissa I have a quarter of the probability of going out with the maths girl, who has half the probability of PJ, so P[sub]PJ[/sub] = 8/13, which is slightly better...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Sorry, I thought it was a quarter of PJ.

I do not know if I told you this already but you are not the one in charge of your relationships and dating.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

By that you mean I cannot control who I am attracted to and end up dating because girls cannot be assigned probabilities?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Nope, the first time you are successful, the first date, the first intimacy, you will think you are in charge. That you planned and executed perfectly. That you made it happen.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Well, I agree that it was not me who completely controlled the outcome, but I would have played a small part. If I had to ask out a girl to get to that stage then I did control it to some extent, surely?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Actually, they do all the planning, and all the manipulating. They can even seem to make you believe that you did it.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

So they typically want to be controlled but at the same time do the controlling?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Like your chance meeting with PJ. Was it chance? Or was it engineered?

Women you will agree are physically weaker, smaller and more fragile than men. Yet, they have survived as his equal. They must have an edge in something else. Some of the sites I sent you to, told you what that is.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I am pretty sure that was chance. I know H used to follow me so I know that most of our meetings were not chance. But meeting PJ was chance, I am sure of it.

Well, women typically have what every guy wants...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, they have physical gifts. But as they told you they see better than we do. Having wider peripheral vision. They can tolerate as much pain or more. They read people better, have better intuition. Feel rather than think their way through situations.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Also, would it be okay to send an e-mail to PJ, saying something like this?

"Hey,

I was just curious, did you move house during the holidays? I've never seen you taking that route to school before... where do you live?"

It sounds a bit stalker-ish though.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Sure you can but that comes built in for them.

Sure you can ask, why not?

Well, she may ignore my e-mail, as a mini payback. PJ is no F though.

The e-mail has been sent.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I doubt PJ will ignore me to the extent F did, is what I meant.

Should get a response at the end of today -- although I have a day off (no lessons), she has a full day I believe.

You will find out the reason for the chance encounter.

I think that if she answers honestly you will find out that it was not a coincidence.

Try being very nice to her. She will eventually tell you the truth.
