Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou can't. She is the only one who can help her. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5227 20121011 19:15:36
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI heard that some people just talk to them normally as if nothing happened. Do you think that is possible in my situation? I highly doubt she will bring up the rejection if I did... #5228 20121011 19:25:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou have trouble talking to them when you are in an ordinary situation. What the heck can you say in a strained one? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5229 20121011 19:30:26#5230 20121011 19:34:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat will you say? What if she ignores you? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5231 20121011 19:40:17
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI may say "Hey, how did your results day go?" because, for all I know, she could have done so badly she has to resit her year. #5232 20121011 19:41:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThink about it. If someone says they will talk to you in September and it is June, do they really want to talk to you? To be your friend? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5233 20121011 19:51:24
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWell, it was July, the end of term when she said that (when school had finished). Her exact text was, I believe: #5234 20121011 19:56:37
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, but C has obviously chosen option a. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5235 20121011 19:59:27
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOkay. But, ideally to do that I'd have to not see C at all. But the thing is, we both hang out in the same room (it's a bit like a common room/ICT/lunch area), and I'm not going to leave my friends for C's sake. Sooner or later we will bump into one another and it might be unavoidable. #5236 20121011 20:08:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou bump into a lot of people, everyone does. Say excuse me and move on. How tough is that? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5237 20121011 20:14:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI guess that sounds pretty straightforward... do you think by now though she has the impression that I'm hurt by her rejection? Would saying 'excuse me' while passing her without speaking to her directly indicate that? #5238 20121011 20:19:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNo, just say it with no expression. The way you would say it to a stranger. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5239 20121011 20:20:40
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOkay. But what do I do if C tries to engage in conversation? If she says 'how are you' for example? #5240 20121011 20:28:43
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThen speak to her. Show no animosity or anger over the rejection. It is 10 to 1 that she will not speak to you. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5241 20121011 20:29:44
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat do I do if she talks about me asking her out? I know it is unlikely but it has happened to me before. #5242 20121011 20:37:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIf she is that open with you then talk to her about it. Again, it is 10 to 1 against. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5243 20121011 20:45:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI find it really hard to talk openly about my feelings for someone, especially when it is to the person I had feelings for. Well, I can do it, my voice just cracks more than usual and I swallow a lot... she would detect this very easily. #5244 20121011 20:55:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat can you do about it? You can speak to her or not. Since she will not speak to you I do not think it is worth worrying about. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5245 20121011 21:06:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOkay. Still wonder who exactly she has told though. Before C came, her friend was looking at me every now and then (well, she might have been looking at the door, waiting for her interview, not sure). And when C came I saw her say something quietly to her friend. I do not know if it was about me. #5246 20121011 21:11:56
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou are watching them way too much. They can detect that. Do not pay any attention to them at all. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5247 20121011 21:17:37
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShe was sitting in the line of sight of my friend. Anything that is in my line of sight, I notice. If there are three windows open and two closed, with one of the blinds pulled down halfway, then that is something I take note of. I cannot help it. #5248 20121011 21:20:32
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou can turn your head away from that or stare past her. I do not think that is a good situation for you with her. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5249 20121011 21:26:05
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI wasn't even looking at her, I just saw her in my peripheral vision. My eyes were always directly looking at my friend. #5250 20121011 21:33:09
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHer peripheral vision is better than yours. Your mind is concentrating on her that is why you are seeing her. Try not to even notice her. Your mind controls what your eyes see. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
