What if she comes online to chat?

Chat briefly and say you have to get off. Or do not even be there.

Gmail has an 'appear offline' function, perhaps I will just set that to my default appearance.

That is a good idea. Every once in awhile talk to her briefly then make an excuse.

What effect will this have on her?

It depends on what she needs. There is a large chance she will not even contact you enough to notice.

She needed me before because she wasn't getting any intimacy from her BF, I think.

So then you were replaced. First, see if she ever intends to talk to you.

How?

If she contacts you, then she wants something. If not then this question is answered.

Let's see if I get one this weekend... if I don't then I will just be able to use the time to get some more work done.

So, either way you can not lose.

That's one way of looking at it.

That is the only way that you can. With her both options are fine.

And who knows, I may get so used to ignoring her I might realise that I want to drop her permanently.

There you go, that yields the best result.

It is getting easier to stop thinking about her, although when she does respond again, I'll momentarily withdraw those feelings, which is the annoying thing.

No you won't. She is making it easier for you.

Sometimes I can't help but feel bitter about her, I do not know if that is a good thing though. Whenever I sense myself thinking about her in a romantic sense I try to remind myself that she ditched me for another guy. (Not exactly like that but it helps to think of it in that way.)

Of course you should think of it like that. But not exactly like that. He was there first and she used you probably to get him jealous and to help her with some math.

Strange mode of thinking on her part, if true...

No, it is very typical.

Or so I am starting to realise...

I think tomorrow will make it a week since her reply, I may as well make her wait the same amount of time for my reply too.

I suggest you forget about her completely. That means not keeping track of how long it has been. When you do not know that then you have forgotten.

Hmm, I don't keep track of the days, I just remember the date and count.
