What is the type that they never go for? The needy, drag-up guy who does their bidding?

Not exactly, the guy everybody says is "a nice guy."

Oh yes, that guy... I think that is what a lot of girls think about me.

Is it true? That is more important than what they think.

Hi;

Sorry, I am having connection problems.

So what are you going to do about it?

I could do some things to naturally be more aggressive, e.g. smile less often or say more direct things/be more argumentative. But another thing is that, maybe I e-mail them too much. For instance, part of me wants to e-mail adriana again instead of waiting for her to reply to my old e-mail from 4 days ago, and another part of me is just saying to wait, since the ball is in her court.

The emailing is not the point. Whether you do or you do not again is not the point. What that post up there says is that "nice guys finish last."

So what part of what I am doing is making me a nice guy?

Beats me, I do not know enough about how British guys treat their women. What is considered the norm over there I do not know. I know that if you did not fit into one of the the nine points in the earlier posts here in America you did not get any action.

Hmm, I don't fit into one of those nine categories yet...

We also discuss mathematics in here too.

Get into one of them fast! Use the techniques you have learned.

This might be doable but I'm not sure. adriana reacted positively to it, she ended up telling me every intimate detail about herself.

Yes, it is the one I was going to suggest and it is the secret of my charm.

But it creates a paradox.

I can do it but it really depends on my mood, sometimes I just don't feel like doing it, even if there is a girl waiting to be groomed or 'greased'. Unfortunately this has led to some potential missed opportunities.

In the modern world it is not good to be introspective. Personally it is but you will be viewed with suspicion and mistrust.

People are taught to make snap judgements about almost everything. They are constantly in a hurry. Also they can not concentrate longer than about 10 minutes on anything.

That is why an interviewer thinks he can determine an applicant in about 8 minutes and a girl sizes you up in about 5 minutes.

I do not agree with any of that but it is the world we live in and it will not change. Therefore you must adapt to it and even take advantage of their shallow thinking. That is why the first meeting with the girl is the most important!

I think the first meeting is definitely important -- a couple of times I have been told that and it can really swerve their opinion of you, from my perspective. That girl from UCL talked about me and said that I was hot and wanted to get into contact with me, just from a first impression -- and it was what I did to make her think that of me that made her want to contact me so much in the first place. With adriana she found my performance at one of the maths Saturday classes impressive (I used a Fourier series to solve one of the problems, they found it cool), which was why she started to contact me a bit (and of course once the conversations got more intimate it drew her interest a bit more). That may not have happened if I didn't go up to adriana in person on the day and start talking to her. The power of being approached in that manner is what seems attractive to them.

Slowly, but surely... I hope.

Nothing from adriana yet, it has been 5 days.

With Holly, we're still talking pretty much on a daily basis, no greasy talk or intimate details yet. We are however talking about a teacher at my school who flirts with students and there's a rumour that she slept with one of them (hardly a rumour to be honest, there are texts on the student's phone that would strongly suggest it).

That does happen but if she is caught she will be canned. Over here they can bring charges against her.

It is the same over here. Another teacher that did that at my school before was fired, the boy was 15 or 16. Over here the age of consent is 16 though so there are no paedophilia charges if the current teacher was caught (my friend is 18), but she would definitely be fired.

16 over here too. Because he is 18, she would just be fired because he is not a minor.
