Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I would say that such fears because they still exist are likely to cause her major problems in the future.

The fact that she has not cut herself recently is not a major triumph for her therapist. If someone is fighting that every day then she only needs one bad day...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

But we don't know if she is fighting that every day. She does seem to lack a bit of confidence in her maths ability (always saying 'sorry' when she makes a mistake or doesn't know something), but I have been helping her get her confidence up when I went to her house. But she's definitely not depressed still, she seems happy.

I would imagine that fears or not she is more closely bound with her Cyprus friend than ever before.

It is funny how you can be closely bound to someone thousands of miles away.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It seems that the gals are better at it then we are. Take my relatives for instance, we live thousands of miles away and they do not desire me any closer than that. But being gals they still claim they love me and consider me family. Go figure!

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I think the webcam sessions she has helps. But if you don't see them or hear from them at all, then I can't see how someone can continue to be attached.

My relatives? Oh they call me once a month and talk to me for a whole 10 - 15 minutes. When their TV shows are coming on they say they have to leave. Now that is true love.

Yes, I have heard of her web camming plus she will drop over there maybe twice a year?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

That is still something though. My mother hasn't talked to any of her relatives for about 15 years, and nowadays I talk to my grandad maybe twice a year if lucky. Once a month is pretty often...

Twice a year, probably. I wonder if she would ever tell me if they broke up.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Why do you think they will break up? As for telling you, no way! Girls are far too secretive to ever tell anything meaningful about their life.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I can't understand how someone who goes out partying all the time and initially seemed to not like relationships, can end up being in a stable LDR. Her lifestyle has promiscuous connotations, it seems her desire to be faithful and her partying habits don't really go hand in hand. In my opinion...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

She probably was hoping that you would volunteer to help her with her math. That way she would not have to ask and she would not owe you anything.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

She doesn't seem to be accepting the help though. Look at this line in her last e-mail:

"I haven't had a chance yet to do the substitution myself but I will."

It was just a substitution into an integral. Takes maximum one minute. How the heck can she not have a chance in a 25-day time period?

Uh oh! she was waiting right there for you to say,"do you need some help?" Of course, if you will do it by email she will not even have to feed you.

I just ignored that part of her e-mail and just asked her what she was doing for her holiday, it was clear she was just trying to fudge an excuse.

Hey, do not feel so bad. Did you know that one of them dated me just because she needed someone to put a closet and a bookcase together?
