You tried that already, she came after you like buzzards go after an open gut wagon.

But clearly I cannot do anything here, there is nothing I can do to end up with her.

I do not see how if her words are true that you have more than a snowballs chance in the Sahara.

That is a decision you are going to have to make. If you can remain uninvolved then you can pursue anybody. If you are fragile then you have to pick carefully.

Stop worrying about what she says.

In my experience women don't use words the same way as men. Try reading "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" by John Gray.

Go and visit and enjoy yourself!

I don't know if I can remain detached. When she started resting her head against me I started to fall for her again, probably because I've never had a girl do that to me before. I will go on Saturday but I don't even know why I am going anymore...

This is only your 3rd date. You are not married. Just try to have a good time.

How is it a date?

Well, technically it might not fit some guy's definition but I think you could say it is a date.

Maybe I will get another hug out of it!

You might not but at least you will have a friend. That is worth a little trouble. You still have all of today and tomorrow to make your mind up.

I have to get ready to go out today, I will see you later.

Hmm, I have never thought of it like that. Maybe she can just be a friend, although it might be difficult to not think of her as any more than that.

Okay, see you later.

Hi;

You will have to think of her that way until she says otherwise. Of course, you can drop her. That is your decision.

I guess there's no harm in being kept a friend for a bit. Being strung along for a bit won't hurt.

She did give me the "you'll find someone" baloney though.

Based on her words she is not a good candidate. She may change her mind or be lying about her feelings. In any case, since she has so far offered no intimacy or commitment, has not even broken up with a ghost bf I would say you you are free to pursue others. Still keeping her as a possibility.

She even said that I'm unlucky I found someone who is different.

I'll keep my options open but there aren't exactly many...

Then remember until you have something else do not jettison this one.

Okay. Maybe I will get something out of it but the odds are so incredibly small. The only things I have going for me are comments like this:

"Do you know how cool I think you are? Have you any idea how much I admire you? I've wanted to meet a mathematician like you for so long."

But then there are comments like this:

"Oh shush you are special. I'll punch you with my super-strong biceps on Saturday if you deny it! Okay you just asked for it. And you're small and weak so it's going to bruise. I've been doing 100 reps a night - watch out!" (she was joking)

Mixed bag...

Hmmmm, she sounds ferocious. 100 reps of what?

Bicep curls probably. She is still pretty small though. Smaller than me at least.

That is actually a good sign.

It means you will soon be challenged to a physical test of strength. You had better be prepared!

I am not...

I am just more concerned that she said I was small and weak, that means most other girls think the same too.
