Stick to Hannah, the other one is a definite no.

I am going into dangerous territory if I ask out Hannah. I just asked out her best friend, adriana. I have to wait a bit before asking out Hannah otherwise I fail with both of them.

Yes, that is correct. I trust you liked adriana better?

adriana replies more quickly and I felt I had a better chance, although Hannah does have a nice body.

By now they both have discussed you if they know each other.

They definitely talk about me. They tell others at their school about me too.

It is free advertising, that can only help.

I will see you tomorrow have to cook.

They were discussing my personality apparently, but that is all I know. They discussed my grades and uni choices.

Okay, see you tomorrow.

**zetafunc.****Guest**

adriana hasn't replied yet... probably going to take that as a no. Time to consider Katie/Rhona.

**zetafunc.****Guest**

Oh wait, she just replied just as I was leaving to go to school

"There isn't really anything near me but we could meet somewhere in between...?"

You will have to find a a spot now!

Hmm. The weather is getting worse, heavy snow now in London... I don't know where she lives though, I know the name of the borough but it's pretty large. I'll ask her whereabouts she lives.

Also, saw a girl I haven't seen since last year today, from my old maths class (she's a year older than me -- was in the same class as me, F and H). Her name's Stephanie, I've mentioned her before; when I told her I got rejected last year, she said "who would reject you?" -- but we hadn't spoken since then. We just exchanged a few "how've you been" phrases, but it turns out she's re-sitting her year, and she was late for her stats exam, so I just wished her good luck and she ran off to her exam. I found her quite cute, but I never wanted to get involved with her because I remember her boyfriend was involved in gangs and I just thought she was going to be trouble. I sent her an e-mail now though; she must be pretty lonely since not many people re-do years at my sixth form. Will see what's up.

Hi;

Just be careful that you do not get anything because you have too many.

I will only be able to talk sporadically today because I have caught something and need to sleep almost without stop.

What do you mean?

Sorry to hear that, a lot of people over here are ill also. Is it that novo virus? Cases are up 80% this year.

I do not know what it is, my brother got it and now I have it. It lasts a couple of days.

I meant if you try for too many you might end up with nothing. How many is too many? That I can not say, depends on your situation.

Does it induce regular vomiting?

Realistically I think the only ones I can see myself dating or being romantically affiliated with are adriana, Katie and maybe Stephanie. Rhona I like more as a friend I guess and Hannah I cannot date at the moment for obvious reasons... which really boils down to 2-3 possibilities. If I considered every female though then it would be about 7 or 8, that is a lot.

So far no, thank God! I haven't anything for about 2 days, I am going to try some light soup and see.

Okay, 2 or 3 is fine. You want have to have enough of a pool to make it possible but not so much that it kills the action.

2 days is a long time... I do not think I have ever been that ill. A trick my friend said is to mix hot Ribena with manuka honey and it helps me every time.

I don't know much about Stephanie but I'm curious because the last time I saw her, several months ago, I heard her say "sometimes I wonder why I'm even in a relationship". Her boyfriend looked like the kind of guy who might treat her badly, never wanted to go near him though since he had two vicious bulldogs on a leash wherever he went.

I would try that if I was capable of going out and getting it.

Yea, he sounds like bad news. Lots of them are attracted to that type and then find out too late that it is not worth it.

I'm almost kicking myself because when I overheard her say that I should've gone up to her and let her talk all her problems on to me, then I could have made her leave him and go for me instead. Although the guy would have probably come after me. I think he might be in prison or something.

You could have done that but she would have said you were too nice of a guy for her to date. That is where those type always end up but they do not seem to mind.

I may have got something out of it though, maybe something brief.

adriana replied, she told me the road she lives on, but also that she wants me to help her with STEP (a maths exam you have to pass to get into places like Cambridge). Do you think I should ask to go to her house instead, in that case? All these signs are good so far...

Hi;

It might have been brief and your life may have been brief too.

Yes, you can do that. By all means help her, remember the homework guy, most successful guy I have ever known with the ladies.

Hmm. True.

Yes, that is what I was thinking, too. Only downside is I have to meet her parents but that's no big deal. Fingers crossed she's an only child.
