That will not be the worst of it. The drinking, the experimenting, the partying, that is what will make anyone who tries to date her miserable.

I have dodged a bullet, but it just means someone else will fire the gun later in life.

Definitely, you will not learn the K lesson until you experience her. Then you will never forget.

K lesson?

That was her name K____. It was thousands of years ago but I still remember every bit about her.

You see that requires an effort of the will. I am sure that you have already forgotten some things and then forgot that you forgot them. It is an essential lack of discipline of my mind that keeps her alive there.

I am trying my best to try and forget. It is difficult, but I can start by removing any kind of emotional attachment I feel to them. For instance, at the moment, I am slowly caring less and less about adriana with each day that passes. The fact that we are talking on a less regular basis is helping me. For me, I just try to think about something else as soon as the thought of her enters my head.

Total concentration on something else will leave no room for her in your mind. Mathematics is what I use to keep my mind free of useless thoughts and memories.

I try to do that too but I cannot keep that up forever. My mind wanders occasionally to C/F but that is only for a very short amount of time.

Bring it right back with a nice series computation.

My mathematical interests tend to flip-flop a lot. Some days it is series, some days it is something completely different. Maybe it is just my age. It is a lot like my taste in women.

That may change. You might get into a groove with both.

I hope so, it would be nice to find a bit of stability for a change.

Not really, talk to some married people. See how much they like stability.

I mean it would be nice to experience intimacy before I grow too old to care about it anymore...

Hmmm, with intimacy comes responsibility. That is a human being lying next to you, not a piece of meat. The modern gals and guys viewpoint that it is nothing more than something to do has led to the problems you are having now.

But there is no changing that viewpoint in this day and age and I prefer it that way, I think.

I did when I was young too. That will change. Uncaring intimacy is no match for love.

The turmoil caused on one's mind by the so called dating scene is awful. Later on you will think back on it much.

I am not looking forward to my first date. It sounds scary.

It is not, and you already have had a first date.

When you went over to her house the first time.
