Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yeah, that did make me lose a bit of confidence for a while.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It should not have had that effect. She was more frightened of it than you could ever be. If it is any consolation to you, I know two girls that are both very good at math and neither of them can stand me. I like both of them but one dumped me and the other will not even talk to me.


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 am sorry to hear that. Do you think this might be attributed to the fact that they're mathematicians?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Perhaps. A mathematician is meaner than a starved pit bull. When girls do math it makes them ornery.

I am going to get something to eat. Be right back.

So you see everybody has problems with them.

Well, it would be helpful to know the reason. But it is difficult to get them to say.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

If she is going to run away every time she sees you then finding out from her is out.

Still don't understand that behaviour. Why not even respond over e-mail? Nobody is too shy for e-mail.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Obviously from her reaction (Talking about F) she was really traumatized by being asked.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Why?? Flattery, surprise, acknowledgement, possibly indifference are what I'd expect, not trauma.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is what I would expect too. Instead you described her as really shying away from you after that. For some reason she had an extreme reaction.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Looks like that no one has ever asked her before. She was startled and maybe even extremely bothered by it. Or maybe that has happened to some other guy too.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is a possibility. But only if you do not appear too wimpy. Girls change their mind. They do not know what they really want. Also, some of them like to be asked more than once. I hate to tell you that for fear of how you will interpret it. But I have had 2 or 3 girls say I gave up too easily.

See you a little later, need some rest.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

The previous 8 never changed their minds though. Maybe #9 will be different. I don't want to ask her out again for a while, especially if she is not talking to me.

Okay, see you later.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Hi;

I agree. But she does appear to be hanging around you a little bit more than F.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Perhaps she is waiting for you to speak first. That is why they are so difficult. They hand out small signs that are difficult for us to pick up on. When we miss them, they always blame us.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I really do not know what to do now, then. It might be a step in the right direction to initiate contact, or I could express weakness if I've misinterpreted her.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, but if she is hanging just inches from you ( your own words ) and sitting in your line of sight, there is a small chance she is trying to attract your attention.

Bizarre? Maybe. But they really do not communicate well at all.
