I doubt it. I wouldn't want to risk it...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I understand, it does semm like a tough challenge.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I am curious how F is finding the workload at Cambridge. She often left things to the last minute.

She is probably wishing you were around to help her.

Well maybe just your brain. You can send it to her in a jar.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I think if anything F is probably afraid that she will see me next year at Cambridge. I didn't tell her that I'm going to UCL though.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Tell her you are going to Cambridge and want to be near here. She will explode.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Couldn't I get into trouble for e-mailing her that? She could claim harassment.

I was just kidding. Leave her alone, she is not worth any effort.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

As long as she stays in your mind, she is alive. You know that, that is why you will not let her go. Even though holding on to her is like holding on to a red hot bar of iron and refusing to drop it.

Hey, I thought about my two favorites for more that 15 years after they dumped me.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

She made a mistake  and responded one time and I loved it. Told her off and would not shine her ego.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I know what you mean. I still have F's e-mails (she sent me 8 and I sent her 16!)... I think she does come across as egotistical in some of them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

They are both  egotistical and unsure at the same time. There ego is thin and can be cracked easily. One small comment or lack of can destroy their whole day.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, I have seen this happen. A lot of girls get easily offended compared to guys who don't seem to get broken so easily. I am ashamed to say that I did stroke F's ego a bit and made her feel better. I knew what I was doing, I just wanted her to feel better, which was stupid.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Nothing wrong with that from your side, but then something happened that changed her mind. They are very fickle and can change minute to minute.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It all changed when I asked her what her plans for the summer were, and she ignored me after that. About 6 months prior to that she said "sorry I think you've misunderstood, I'll only talk to you about maths/uni applications only". I didn't think she meant it, she came across as so informal in recent e-mails.

She is brutal, should be easy to forget about her.
