We talked a lot in person 3-4 years ago, we sat next to each other in maths. She was a pretty good mathematician (although she wants to do English at uni). We don't get the chance to talk in person because we share no lessons together in sixth form, and we attend lessons which are in the complete opposite parts of the school... as a result I don't see most of my old friends.

You are seeing more or less of her now?

About the same as it has always been -- about one sighting every 2-3 months and it is just a quick hello.

Then she is not really a possibility...

The only girls I see a lot are PJ and Holly. PJ walks halfway home with me on Mondays and sometimes Fridays (and sometimes I see her on the way to school, too). If I leave earlier than normal I get to walk to school with Holly, although it's rare that I see her walking home.

Never. She goes to a completely different school, and her house is just over 1 and a half hours away by bus.

Probably not a strong candidate.

I am going to have to go offline for a while, see you then.

Hi;

Sorry but I was in need of some sleep. Where were we?

I think we were talking about Katie.

Yes, she lives too far and goes to a different school. In the future things like that will matter less.

Maybe in the near future. I only have 3 more weeks of lessons at school, after that, it's just exams I have to go in for and it is done forever...

You seem to have narrowed it down to a few. Which do you prefer?

Probably Holly because she lives so close to me, but to be honest I don't feel any strong sense of attraction towards any of these girls.

Then you are missing the prime ingredient.

For me, it was the most important one. Without it, what is the point?

Physical intimacy just for the sake of it?

To be honest the only girls I think I have been very attracted to in that way in recent memory are F and adriana...

Without passion what is intimacy?

Do you feel that way?

Well, I've never done anything with a woman, so I can't comment, although in my mind passion does seem important, yes.

The way I look at it they represent a tremendous drain on my resources. I never went after one that there wasn't a huge attraction.
