I don't know, I am used to a lack of success I guess. Maybe she will decide for me. (Unlikely though.)

yes, but you have gone through the hell of having a relationship and then having it fall apart.

But will it be with adriana? Hmm.

Yes, I believe so. There is a better than 60% chance.

Girls are not the only ones that fall for people who treat them poorly. Men are susceptible to it too.

But me falling for her doesn't mean a relationship will happen...

Remember when I told you that F was actually being merciful. That she could have led you on and then dumped you. The emotional pain is about 100 times worse than being dumped in the beginning. I also told you that future girls might not be merciful and take delight in destroying men.

So you are saying she is F 2.0.

She has detected that you like her. She is a massive game player. I have seen the type dozens of times and each time they whupped me real good.

So you do not recommend her as a first partner?

That I can not say because it is quite possible you will find nothing better. I think you already realize that this pattern is going to be repeated again and again. They are all pretty much the same.

What a horrible life...

Heck no! Have you ever heard the old gamblers adage? "The next best thing to playing and winning is playing and losing!"

We are alive to experience things. We try to avoid the obviously bad experiences but will make many mistakes along the way. I enjoyed every date with all of them. Pain and suffering is part of life, get used to it, it ain't going away.

And what if with lots of bad experiences there are barely any good experiences or none at all? I have had more of the former it seems than the latter, and I think the only instance of the latter I have had was watching a movie with adriana, which most people would regard as silly...

They say, "if life deals you lemons, make lemonade!"

Whether or not an experience is good or bad depends on how you view it, how you react to it. That is why detachment is so relevant.

But what if I keep being detached, such that when it comes to the point where it might be good to become attached, I cannot?

Detachment is not paralysis, it is much closer to cool, rational action.

I do not know how long I can do that for... I find it easier when outside and the adrenaline is pumping.

Adrenalin is the fight or flight hormone. It is for action without thought. It is great when you are in physical danger. For all other situations clear thought without adrenalin is better.

I guess I will need clear thought in this situation. About 2 hours to go until I leave...

Are you prepared adequately?

I have water and I'm taking a few snacks, money, protection, and maths stuff.
