But, for what reason is she playing this game? Does she simply like the attention? Enough to buy me pizza, make me a pie and cookies and cuddle with me? I thought that maybe she just liked the attention I was giving her, but I don't think a girl would do that sort of stuff if that was all she was after.

Why not? That is the way she acts with every guy probably.

I am not sure about that... I do not think she would send every guy 30-40 e-mails per day and talk dirty with them. Supposedly she does not know many guys, going to an all-girls school. She has already said that we have the weirdest friendship ever...

Pizza can be bought with Daddy's money. She knows you and claims to have a bf. There may be other guys. seems to be doing okay from that all girl school.

The fact that you do not know her intentions should prove she is being evasive for some reason.

I do know that she does not appear to like commitment.

If she told you that I would tend to doubt the truth of it.

She did not tell me directly, it was implied...

That could be a form of manipulation. She could have planted that seed in your mind.

How do I know we are not just overthinking this?

You will know soon enough, these are just likely possibilities. They all indicate caution, control your feelings, remain detached. You do not know what you are dealing with.

There isn't much I have certainty in. I'm just waiting for the email that says she's broken up with her BF.

That would clear up matters some.

That would be quick, what happens if it does not?

Then I'll probably ask her about her BF...

Could be over by then. I mean in her mind. In reality it is already over.

One thing's for sure, I will eventually get bored of being treated like a friend and would like to be treated as a lover.

Well, the thread is over a year old now... it would be nice to finally get something out of all this.

Well actually we talked about linear interpolation, ill conditioned equations and some such things.

Interesting but maybe not unique. We do chat a bit in other thread too.

For 300 pages?

Hmm, not much heard from adriana today, only 4 e-mails compared to the usual 30-40 or so.

Hi;

Maybe she is calming down a bit. That is still a lot of communication so...

She does have mock exams this week. I am seeing her for a third time this Saturday.
