I have, but barring some miracle I'll never finish them all.

Why handicap yourself worrying about what that person is apt to do?

Hopefully you have learned how to deal with the next one a bit better. The funny thing about all of this is that every guy has to go through it personally before he figures it out.

it would not have helped. You have some more to go through before you will be battle hardened.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, I know that the reality is I have it quite good. My uncle for instance had children with multiple women, most of whom cheated on him and it turned out that the children weren't even his, unfortunately giving him suicidal thoughts. I am lucky that I'm not in that situation.

I told you of just a few. I did not take my own advice often enough.

Maybe I can avoid some of those landmines if I tread carefully. I know that inevitably I must run into a few though.

You need those landmines to learn. Unfortunately we need to experience things to know them,

You should not be waiting for it. You have other ones who now are talking to you more than she does.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Just one -- and there's less communication between us now. I think I'll wait for another. There's Hannah too but the frequency of replies is somewhat inconsistent.

I'm 18 and a bit

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

The content of the e-mail exchanges between myself and Hannah are predominantly mathematical though -- not that that is much of a bad thing. It makes for interesting conversation.

Since you are interested in what you have in common with a prospect it is very good.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

The trouble with her is that her replies are inconsistent; sometimes we will have an exchange of e-mails in the space of a day, and often I'd wait a week at least for a reply.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Hannah's previous gap was almost 6 weeks... before that it was a solid once per day though and they were pretty long too.

You did not strike when the iron was hot, so to speak. Now it is a little late. But perhaps you can rekindle it.
