Hi;

Let's say that is a general method, but it converges too slowly. I do not know how to prove that will always work. Maybe from your derivation.

I thought my derivation basically proved it... just replace 11 with n.

Yes, for large n, it converges extremely slowly. Even for root 11, you require many terms. It is interesting though.

It is adriana's birthday today...

Since did not call you and she is busy posing with her mysterious bf that she gave all indications that she was dumping, I suggest you dump her at least for now. At least until she contacts you.

Okay. It does not hurt as much as I thought it would though. I am thinking of pursuing Hannah; she seems very eager to learn maths too and having just discovered her FB page she is actually really pretty. She too is on holiday though (but we talked a few days ago, when she was at an Internet cafe in Slovenia). She doesn't seem like a party animal to be honest, she doesn't drink or do drugs, has only kissed a guy before. I could be wrong though and I often am.

She could be lying also. I never knew one that was ever honest about their past or worse, their present situation.

I hope what she has told me so far is mostly true, then.

To be honest, H was pretty much 100% honest/open. She even told me she was crazy beforehand. That is the only one I know who appeared to be completely honest.

She was probably telling you about 10% of the truth. The tip of the iceberg so to speak. But that is better than this one.

For all I know, she (adriana) could have already made a conscious decision not to contact me again. I certainly won't be contacting her until she contacts me, the ball is in her court.

If that is what she had in mind she made that decision a long time ago. When she decided to go and meet her boyfriend who has been waiting for her in Cyprus or maybe somewhere else.

Well, I am getting closer to my goal, at least. No real intimacy but she slept on my shoulder, that is a start.

That is a little bit your decision. You taught her things? What would homework guy have done?

What you could have done was when she was coming on to you was to begin exploring. If she objected then you are through with her and no more help. Simple.

That kind of thing sounds like a trick I could pull only when I am more experienced. I am yet to do anything with a girl yet; for all I know, I might turn out to be too scared to do anything with her in person.

Well surely you wanted to hold her and caress her a bit. Exploration of her was what you were after. She was there, she would probably have went for it.

Yes but it was still nerve-wracking for me. I've yet to mentally cross that bridge...

Then you are not ready yet. You should wait a bit more and your hormones will eventually overpower that apprehension. If you have no desire it is impossible to continue.

I have the desire, I was just not strong enough. I do not really want to be waiting my whole life...

Hmmm, waiting until you are more desperate is preferable to failing everytime. I told you that you must act decisively and strongly with them. Any indecision is considered weakness, they will dump you without a thought. That is the reason why homework guy acted the way he did. His was an overreaction to their bad treatment of him.

Yes, clearly I have been too indecisive and weak so far. But with every experience I have I am at least making some progress, maybe slowly getting more decisive/stronger.

Hi;

Happens to everybody, homework guy was a nice guy before they got to him.

I am going to make something to eat and then eat it. See you in a bit.

Hi;

I got some special type of chickens here, pretty fancy but I am just going to fry them up. I will have to jump up and down to make sure they do not burn.
