Names are easier. C has not done anything wrong with the refusal but after that she has been weird.

I am going to get some rest. See you later.

Okay, then I will reveal the names. (But not surnames.)

C = Ciara

F = Fiona

H = Hillary

IY = Isabella

Okay, see you later.

That is quite a bunch there. I will never remember all of that. You will have to remind me now and then.

Okay. Maybe letters are better then. H (Hillary) you will probably not need to remember as she is pretty much gone.

Yes, I remember her alright. Gone but not forgotten.

Yes. I do wonder why she is not able to get internet at her uni.

No kidding. Why, is it being blocked for abuse?

No idea. I highly doubt she is ignoring me though. H has never ignored an e-mail from me.

Things change. She might have found someone else.

I hope she has, she deserves it.

How many times have you tried to reach her?

Once on the day that she moved to uni to check if she moved in okay, and once a few weeks ago to see how she is coping at uni. No responses. I guess I could ask her brother but they aren't that close and her brother knows literally nothing about me and H.

She has a brother? You know him? You could ask him how she is doing?

Yes, I could if I see him. He knows who I am though. H said she kept everything discreet but she told her family that I'm good at maths, and according to her she asked her parents what they thought about her having a boyfriend (she didn't mention me specifically though). So, her brother most likely knows nothing about it.

She is very thoughtful to have asked her parents before doing it.

Do you think F or C would have done the same? Or IY?

Probably not. Maybe F but I doubt it.

Strange, do you think it is cultural? Or just something unique about H?

Maybe cultural. She was of Chinese origin.

They have a strong family structure. I do not see someone over here doing that.

I know, I didn't think H would do that either. Can't see C doing that at all... she has probably been with guys before. However, from 11-16 she DID go to an all-girls school, so it's possible that she has never had one. I doubt it though.

Her answer seems to indicate she has had some experience before.

Yes, probably. F's response might indicate she has not though.

Yes, to just run away like that is certainly weird to the extreme. I have never seen that reaction before.
