That may end up happening with adriana but I can gain a lot from meeting up with her next week. I still need to determine if she really does like me (signs point to yes so far). I also don't want to become too emotionally attached.

In your case the experience will do you good. Many bad things can happen in a relationship. When it is all over and you are an old man you will be able to finally answer the question.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

The experience is the reason I want to jump-start things like this too. Having at least one before I go to uni would help.

Listen, you set it up as best you can after that it is out of your hands. Many things can go wrong. Hope for the best and expect the worst is a good maxim to live by.

Yes... and if the worst happens, then at least I have other girls as possibilities. But I know that I can't be picky.

The dates could actually happen and still things can go wrong. You never really know. A week is a long time, she can change her mind. Be ready for the unexpected.

Thanks! I'm hoping for the best and expecting the worst but the 6-day wait is nerve-wracking.

hi zetafunc,

Just spent the last half an hour catching up on your posts.  You're at post 6884.  Eeeekkkk!

So have I got this right ... you're going to her house to help her with step papers ?  Or is it the coffee shop ? Or both ?

Yes, I do believe that is a date. Sit back and relax and enjoy the show.

Going to her house to help with STEP; she hasn't done any questions yet... but I'm hoping that she knows I'm not there to help her with maths.

Thank you. I guess I am most worried about meeting her family.

Never worry about the things you can do nothing about. Try being polite first, see if they want to reciprocate or want war.

I think they'll be fine.  There's a good chance they'll be like her.

I hope it will be okay. I googled her and found out that she has an older sister (early 20s), but I don't know anything else about her family. Who knows, maybe she will send her family out so we are alone.

I've still been talking to adriana (so looks like we will be talking up until the 26th). She's just been asking me about why I want to go to UCL, where I'll live, etc... she seems to agree with everything I say.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I guess nothing is wrong with it, although if she disagrees with something I say, I suppose I'd want her to say it... at the moment we're just talking about random stuff, like being 18, or gap years.

Two people who do not agree very much can rarely be together. Even for a limited time.

Hmm, well, we seem to agree on everything so far. She also loves it when I tell her about maths; she said that as long as I keep talking about it, I could never bore her. Which is a good sign, I feel...

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I am not following you, this sounds perfect. You know what I would do? I would put on my camouflage paint, my bulletproof vest, my night vision goggles and grab a big burlap sack. Then I would sneak across town invisible to the ordinary human and throw her in the sack and take her home with me. That may be illegal in Britain, so check first.
