Ha! The biggest change in a man's life (as depicted in "All the world's a stage") is puberty. However, I have managed to surpress sit for the bigger and better things in life such as education.

So has he. He is very well versed and well trained. He just is in a difficult time. One that he will struggle through and then conquer.

Divide and conquer! But I'd much rather not care about attractions. Covalent bonding instead of ionic. Or rather...Polar bonding.

You might very soon. I talk with someone about your age and he is in love.

As I said, I do not care about anything is this world other then education, academics and bio-immortality.

You see how easy it is to start chatting? But we have lost zetafunc;

I think I will not ask her out. She said "I'm not really sure, just school and work and stuff, nothing special xxxx". I can't see any sign of interest. I think I ought to drop it.

Well, believe it or not that is slightly better than before. If she had hard plans that does not leave you any room to maneuver. But if her plans are not fixed then you can possibly ask. The "nothing special" is a sign of boredom and maybe you can alleviate that.

So why didn't she ask "why"? If she was interested, she'd have asked it as a come-on, but she didn't. Either she is not interested or oblivious to my intentions...

Could be oblivious, that is possible. Hard to detect emotions in a text message.

Why am I going after girls that show no interest at all? I cannot get anything from R.

You will not know that for sure unless she has failed the three time test. Or acts like F and C did after one time.

It is true you may not have a great chance of dating her. But you are not locked out. You can appreciate the difference between 1 / 5 and 0 as probabilities. Or 1 / 1000 and 0.

I am going to see if I can get a little bit of sleep. See you later.

But it is getting boring just doing this same thing over and over and always getting the same result. It is the same story, yet again.

Okay, see you later.

Being oblivious is a passionate emotion. I do think you should ask R.

Hi;

We have covered that a little. If you are disheartened then take a break and recharge.

Come back when you feel ready.

Okay, I will go back to the drawing board.

If I am being honest I am not really after a relationship, just a physically intimate one. But the latter is hard to get on its own.

Nothing wrong with that. That may develop into a deeper relationship or it may just happen and end.

Well, I do not know who to make my primary target. R, or Katie? It is hard to tell which is the better candidate.

That is difficult to say based on the information you have. Why not wait a little bit longer?

How much longer? With Katie I am running out of time. I have until 8th December at the most, possibly 24th November. That is only three weeks away.

Then you will have to ask her for a date. Also you need to get a more lasting way of contacting her.

Yes, also you know I always recommend finding out early whether or not they are interested. That saves so much grief later on.

By asking them for a date as soon as is possible. They say yes, great. They say no, great. The date does not have to be elaborate, just a let's get something to eat or let's do this.
