Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I can not answer that either. It does not matter. In this case the less you notice her, the more she is going to notice you. Isn't that better than being ignored?


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

Yes but I really doubt ignoring her will make her notice me more. She is already noticing what I'm doing, most likely.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

The more you ignore her the more interesting you will become to her. This is common. It works on you doesn't it?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, but C obviously isn't doing that intentionally. I still don't think ignoring her is going to make her want me. It will just make me forget about her.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is the effect it may have on you but not on her. They love attention, they need it. When you deprive them of it they go crazy wondering why. This is not foolproof but almost.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

So if I do that, how long before I get some profit for my work?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Profit is immediate. For one thing she will not think you are a weak person. That respect is important. For another ignoring her is going to free your mind for other things. Lastly, she may or may not come around to you. But the other way you already struck out.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It depends on how much she fits the stereotypical girl. How well you play the part is also a factor. Even if it was 10%, isn't 10% a lot better than 0%? Since you gain the other things too, I would say this is the correct strategy.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I'd say C is the stereotypical girl. F definitely isn't.

Ideally I would like C to notice me ignoring her and eventually decide to call me. I think this is unlikely though.

If you do it right, that may happen. If it does not then so what?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

If that happens then 2013 has a slightly higher chance of being a dull, dry spell.

I don't know, I feel like perhaps I should have waited and asked C out in person instead. Maybe it would not have led to this.

Nope! You would have got the same answer.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

But would it have led to the same amount of ignoring?

I think I already appear weak to her. And besides, her being a few inches taller than me doesn't help. I do wonder what's up with her though, she's still hot but her eyes look 'darker' and I think she lost weight. Obviously I haven't been able to inspect her closely enough though so I don't know for sure if those things are true.

Also, is tutoring a friend for £10 an hour ($16) a fair deal? (It is for a guy, not a girl unfortunately.)

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Sure go ahead and tutor him.

I think I already appear weak to her.

If you keep on noticing her even after she rejected you she is going to think you are her little puppy. Not good.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Given that I asked her out via phone, she probably already thinks I am a puppy.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Then it is important to straighten that out by showing her you do not care about what happened.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Couldn't ignoring her be interpreted as me caring about what happened? Maybe if I didn't care about what happened I'd still talk to her as normal...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

No, you are not interested in her anymore. You do not have to talk to her, she has to talk to you. That should be the attitude you are projecting.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Okay, so if I passed her straight in a corridor without even looking at her, would that show her that I'm not interested in her anymore or would it border on rudeness?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

She has been a lot ruder to you. Maybe, an uncaring nod, like you would give to some guy you barely know.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

If she does not return the nod then you will have to be a lot sterner with her after that. That is why, I would not even nod. It is likely she is not going to return it and you have been embarrassed.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

If she doesn't return the nod then I refuse to acknowledge her, as that is rude. I wonder if that will happen.
