But a hypothesis test is the normal approach?

Yes but it is not the only one.

Sorry, I forgot to mention about the emails. Why was she frantic?

She wasn't frantic, just for some reason stood a few metres away from me for about half an hour talking to friends. Whenever I'd say something to someone across the room she'd look at me listening to what I said for some reason, expecting me to say something to her or look at her, but I didn't. Strange behaviour.

But you were looking at her too. So, she might think you were standing a few meters away listening to what she said.

You could walk up to her and talk to her.

I was not really looking at her, it was just my peripheral vision. When I look at someone across the room I can clearly see someone looking at me too, even though I am not looking directly at them.

Could have but I couldn't be bothered to do so, I was doing my own work, talking to my own friends...

What do you think she wants?

Probably wants another 'guy friend' she can drag around to boost her confidence, similar reason to why most of the other girls talked to me I guess...

That you can never know. Like I said, they do not communicate their feelings or intentions. That is a possibility but not the only one.

My instinct is that that is the most likely possibility...

Examining the why is not something you need to do. You could have exploited it.

Exploited it?

Yes, the first step to intimacy is closeness. Like homework guy he did not care what they were thinking or feeling. He would just maneuver himself and them into a situation where he could get what he wanted.

I just feel a bit tired of doing all this approaching, initiating. I clearly need some more experience before I can do what homework guy can do.

Everybody does. He was considered a dating genius. No matter what method we use we need solutions else he gets them all.

I am surprised that, given that those types of guys exist, PJ and Holly haven't already been whisked away.

He does not hold on to them. He moves on to another one. But it is true that his targets were a bit older than them.

So they won't work on 17-18 year old British girls.

I can not say. He was working on college girls. Depends on how quickly they mature where you are. Over here, I would say 16+ is about the age his methods would work on.

They seem pretty immature over here. The girls I have overheard certainly have high standards anyway.

Could be they are behind girls elsewhere. But certainly there must be others like adriana around. She can not be an isolated case.

I am being called away, see you in a bit.

Okay, see you later.

Hi;

I suspect you will find them eventually. Everyone does.

Maybe not whilst still in school. Only 2 weeks of taught lessons to go...
