Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Continue having a minimal amount of contact with her with more or less closed responses until her interest waivers or perhaps she raises the stakes by offering something. The latter is extremely unlikely, so the former will likely be the course of action.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Hmmm, you seem to be following a little bit of homework guy's advice.

Well, I can't see how anything else I can do would make the situation better (for me).

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, I agree. She deserves homework guy.

The next time if it happens, that she needs math help, I would suggest withholding it. Cold blooded? Hmmm.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Okay...

She did however say about 6 weeks ago that she didn't want to promise me anything. (On the topic of her possibly being my girlfriend.) So perhaps this is just the inevitable playing out.

Yes, she has that disclaimer. It was you who went with the idea of changing her mind.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Then she will not have the information. When you go to University you will see what I am talking about.

Your sum does not have a closed form in terms of known simple constants.

If I can't change her then I wonder why I keep talking to her at all...

darn, okay, thanks for telling me.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Where does the series come from, that sometimes helps.

As soon as you find someone else, she will fade away.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It is part of the series that arises when considering the Fourier series of e^x at x = pi/2. That other nice sum I got was a consequence of letting x = 0, so I wanted to see if I could get other interesting convergences...

To do that, I need to find someone though.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Hi;

That is why I said look around, that will automatically erase her. Believe it or not, if you had a gf she might want you.

Did you post this Fourier series for e^x?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I thought about lying and telling her that, but then that could just have the opposite effect and turn her off me even more.

She would know if you were lying. But if you weren't then she might become interested.

That's okay, I will never believe anything a girl says to me, ever. I will always assume the opposite is equally likely to be true.

Not equally likely, about 10 times more likely. They are trained to be deceptive.

If only men and women could approach the dating scene maturely and not as some sort of big power game that would also solve the problem.
