Okay, remember girls tire easily. Guys can keep something going for years but the girls they tend to get bored or despondent.

I hope that isn't happening here. Haven't got any e-mails from any of the 4 today.

It is a little bit early to start worrying could just be an ordinary delay.

I wish they replied a bit more often though. I am surprised, with 4 girls, I'm not getting many e-mails very often.

They might not like writing as much as you do. As far as I can remember the ones I know tend not to like email or text.

That might be a problem...

I guess they depend a lot more on visual clues than we do so they prefer face to face interaction.

I am choosing to wait for more signs first. I want to see if I can ascertain a greater probability.

Yes, but what if the sign is I am no longer interested in you?

Then I move on and forget about the person and find another.

I'm at an advantage with 3 of the 4 girls (not R) since they go to different schools. If I wanted to, I could easily cut off all contact with them permanently.

I would cut the time in half that you are allocating to email. It might be too slow.

Okay, I ask Katie out whenever I see an opening.

I think for the other two girls it's too early since I barely know them. I cannot even remember what one of them looks like.

That might work. Worst that could happen is she says no.

Any of those girls willing to send you a picture or to a link?

Not sure. Seems sort of a personal thing to ask. There is a picture of one of the girls on Twitter but it's a little small.

That ought to be enough to get an idea. Can you blow it up?

It gets a little blurry. Can't see her face too well. She's got a nice body though.

Okay, you will have to wait until she responds or you see her again.

I may not see them again, I only have one more Saturday class.

When is that? You will have to make your move right then if you are interested.

The 8th of December and technically I don't need to go because it is 'final interview practice' -- but my interview is just before that and the majority of those guys are applying for Oxford, so their interviews are later.

So the question is will you go and what will you do?

I don't know if there is any point in going, I rarely get to talk to them that much in that environment. Katie doesn't talk to me much there -- I think it's better to stay in touch by phone.

You have those girls' phone numbers?

Just Katie and R. I can get the other girls' phone numbers easily, probably.
