Nope, that is a decision for you. For me, I would wait.

Is it a bad idea to rush into these sorts of matters?

I do not know. All of the other guys in the world claim they are undamaged by their endless meaningless affairs. But when I look at them I saw that they committed suicide, turned to booze and or drugs, needed a triple bypass by the time they hit 40, etc.

I went with the idea that there should be some emotion beyond the physical attached to it. The guys and mostly the girls did not agree.

In that case, it might be better to wait... don't want anything bad to happen.

In a few hours it will be 20 days since I have heard from adriana. I am excited, only 6 more days until the record is broken!

Records were made to be broken.

Maybe she will be a spoiler and send something at the end of this week. And if she does, then I will make sure to make her wait and wait, as I did once.

She is likely to make that backfire.

Because you will find women have a marvelous sense of detachment. [unfriendly comment removed by bobbym]

Oh, I thought you meant she would threaten suicide or something.

She might, they are into emotional blackmail. Sometimes they throw temper tantrums, other times they will cry. Do not believe any of it.

I don't think she has done any of that yet, although she did seem to get worried when I stopped replying to her for a bit in the past. Should've abandoned her long ago to be honest.

Of course, and this is sort paradoxical to the western mind but had you let her go, you would have roped her in.

Possibly. I hope I won't make the same mistake next time.

Maybe you will also pick a little bit better. In the beginning we all tend to pick with our eyes and not to see anything past that.

Yes, I will probably learn from experience. Then again, I never found adriana attractive when I first saw her... when I met up with her and cuddled with her then it became a different story altogether.

Phew, almost finished my project, sent in my draft -- I really should have not left it so late.

At your present stage of development you are particularly vulnerable to their antics.

Sure seems like that...

Uh-oh, I am in a bit of a pickle. I'm giving my presentation on the Newton-Leibniz calculus controversy next Wednesday, but I invited both R and PJ... and, unexpectedly, R said she wants to come, and PJ says she wants to come to (to see a maths presentation? What gives?). So there will be some tension in the room, great.

*PJ said she wants to come **too**.

So what? The more the merrier. If I were younger, I would swim the Atlantic and battle those sharks to get there too.

And if there is an argument during the presentation between PJ and my friends?

What can you do about that? Just do not get involved in it.

R said she may not be able to come anyway -- I'd be surprised if she did, she has been shy towards me this year, except via e-mail.

That is an interesting topic. They were both great geniuses but the story as it is told does not seem to fit them.
