That is not nice. When I think of famous chefs know quite a few of them are male.

Hmm, Katie replied. She wants to know what kind of girl I like.

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.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

I gave a bit of a vague description (not specific), and posed the same question to her.

I used to use a canned answer to that question but it did not go over very well.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I used to say, "a girl like you" to her.

There is a tougher question that I also never came up with a good answer to.

Incidentally, it is good to see that at least some things have not changed in the thousands of years I have been living.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I sometimes think about saying that but instead I like to give hints at it, or sometimes frustrate her a bit to the point where she is basically asking the question "do you like ME?".

Tougher question?

I never thought about it much. I realized much later that it is a trick question. Either it is built in or their mother gives it to them.

Yes there is a tougher question. "Why do you like me?" That one was particularly hard for me to understand.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is a hard one... but probably extremely common, with girls who have low self-esteem (like adriana). I have noticed her lack of confidence in her mathematics too.

As far as I could determine, and this is just my guess their need to be liked is the underlying reason for the partying.

This need to be liked is a direct consequence of their low self esteem and general lack of confidence.

She will probably get plenty of that from her 'BF' when she goes to Cyprus.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yep.

I've also noticed the numbers of e-mails she's been sending me each day have been slowly decreasing. For 30, then about 20, then 11, and yesterday it was only 8.

Hi;

Interesting, the curve looks like this.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Would be neat if there was a way to find the number of e-mails a person sends you per day in Hotmail... I can't just go by date either, because sometimes we stay up talking until 1 AM the next day.

That rough count suggests they are diminishing.

It could mean she is losing interest. It could be just settling down to something more realistic than 30 per day.

Either that or she is just busy preparing for her holiday. She leaves in 15 hours or so.

Could be. You mentioned she would be gone for 2 weeks?

She comes back from Cyprus on the 20th to London, but then she's off to Barcelona on the 21st and her birthday is on the 22nd. I don't know when she is back from Barcelona. But school starts back on Monday the 25th.
