Why don't they communicate well? Is that what you are asking?

No, I mean, if she really is trying to attract my attention, why is she doing it?

Beats me. They are very changeable.

Of course you should but I am afraid that it may not be possible. Getting them to open up in honest conversation is nearly impossible.

Nothing, until she talks to you. Has she returned any emails of yours? Has she talked to you?

We don't have each other's emails. She has not talked to me yet. Not since July 14th I think. I sent her a text on results day asking how it went (August 16th) but got no response. So it has been 3 months.

So how on earth can you approach someone who does not speak to you? Does not return your text messages? Does she sound like she is interested in even being your friend?

I don't think so.

Then I suggest as before that you forget her.

That new class you were taking, try some of them there.

Be away for a bit.

Okay, but I will probably inevitably end up reporting back on her.

I'll try some of those in the new class, but unfortunately it is only run for 2 hours on a Saturday fortnightly basis

Okay, see you later. I have to go to school now too.

Whatever you report will probably be unpleasant.

I did not know it was so rare.

I saw IY today. She was in the same room as me for 2 hours or so. But when she passed me in the room sometimes, she never looked at me or talked to me, no 'hello'. And I saw her once turn around, look at me and quickly turn back around when I looked at her. I have no idea why she is acting like this. Earlier in September she was saying hello to me... now, nothing. Nothing at all. Then I saw her sit down next to another guy and watch her playfully put an arm around him while he was on the computer. I felt so insignificant. Oh well, I am not only dead to C, but to IY too, it seems.

Get rid of that feeling right away. It is unproductive to lose your confidence. Just shrug it off.

I am in the process of shrugging it off.

Whenever I talk about maths in a quiet room I notice that I get occasional glances from people (female and male). The girls never approach me though, just the guys.

You sure have a big bunch of weird girls in your school.

Perhaps IY is now with a guy and he hates her flirting.

Or maybe I am the weird one.

Definitely! We are all weird. So that makes all not weird because weird is the norm.

I didn't see C today either, but I might tomorrow. There is an 80% chance of me seeing her on Wednesday.

So there is an 80% chance of having a bad experience.

Isn't there a very small chance I will have a good experience?

Yes, 20% chance of that.
