That is good. Have a good time.

Thank you. Apparently we are going to do some more maths, then watch a movie, then (and this was her idea) watch films, because she "finds it interesting"...

Maybe you can get her to finish A Beautiful Mind. Just remember to tell her most people who do math do not see imaginary people.

She has seen A Beautiful Mind multiple times, but she hadn't got any sleep the previous night so about halfway through the film she fell asleep on my shoulder. Also, when John Nash is in the mental hospital and cuts his arm open, I saw her put her hands over her face because she felt uncomfortable (she has self-harmed in the past). That was when she started to put her head on me.

That is a gruesome scene. I like the scene where he rides his bicycle doing an infinity symbol. Pretty cool guy.

Yes, that was nice. I liked the amount of symbolism in this film. When the Othello pieces scattered for example.

We are watching 'Pi' next, the black and white psychological thriller.

I have never seen that one.

I have only seen bits of it, but I have heard it is very good, about a number theorist who drives himself insane trying to find patterns in the Torah.

Maybe she will want to cuddle with me some more this time.

That sounds like a good movie.

Cuddling is good just as long as she is not one of those people that drool when they sleep.

She doesn't drool thankfully, she is a pretty quiet sleeper. Apparently I am comfy.

Just as long as she does not think of you as a sofa or a pillow.

I was worried about that. I did note that, after she woke up, she continued resting her head against me. I think this is a good sign but then again it might just mean she is comfortable around me.

Maybe you will get more information about that on Saturday.

Maybe. And it might be a more intimate setting since we'd be alone (whereas last week her sister, 2 years younger, was in the room also). She would be more open in that environment.

I know not to put all my eggs in one basket though so I sent Katie my first real flirty message and I'll see how she responds.

That might be a good idea, just as long as K and the other do not find out.

Katie probably wouldn't but Hannah probably already knows...

Yes, and is probably jealous. Can't be helped.

Would adriana have told Hannah that we cuddled, though?

Most definitely. Have you ever seen guys hanging out? Heard them talking? They will describe in detail ever encounter. Girls are worse!

When thinking about dating a girl at my job or in the casino, I always had to think about the effect it would have on all the other girls in the place.

I knew that if I did poorly it would soon be known by all of them. I would have trouble in the future getting any dates from the rest. When I did well, that would be known too. Then I could usually get around to dating all of them.

Point is, they grade guys.

Hmm, I suppose it also highlights the importance of not picking too many girls from the same 'pool' so to speak. I'm not sure what adriana would have told her exactly (over e-mail we discussed some very intimate stuff), but she probably knows that I've been visiting adriana.

This is another reason why I don't want to go to her house if there are lots of other girls there, like Hannah.

Can't be avoided. You will probably have to meet her friends. I always found the mother to be the worst.

Her mother is really nice. Says she loves having me over... so family isn't an issue which is good.

You are lucky, none of them liked me. The brothers were almost as bad. Every time I was introduced the mom always looked at her daughter as if to say, where did you find this loser?

Sorry to hear that. That type of situation is one I always fear when meeting a girl.

It did not bother me. It only assisted me. I was happy.
