She probably did already and you were just next on the list. Do not expect too much from people else you will be disappointed.

Hopefully I'll have more luck at UCL.

Speaking of which, they gave me a place. It is a single room, looks decent, a bit small but there is a shared kitchen and shared bathroom. 20 minutes walk from the campus. Rent is £147 per week (about $231 USD). That's a bit on the high side for just a single room. I really really hope student finance give me some bursary, anything -- because with just the money they have given me it will be a struggle.

That would be considered high over here, very high. Around the university, students rent apartments for about 400 - 500 per month USD. These are between 600 and 750 sqr ft. That includes bathroom, kitchen 1 bedroom and a living room.

Those are all included in the apartment?!

Yes. That particular area is not considered the best though. It is a little bit better further away.

Because it is normally more expensive to rent an apartment close to the campus?

It is funny how once people get what they want they literally forget about you...

Pretty common trait among people. Some of the people you see now you will not ever see again in your entire life.

Replace 'some' with 'most'. And in the case of girls, 'never'. Only possible exception is some sort of school reunion.

With the girls you never really know. The longest I have had one get in touch with me was 7 years.

The birthday card one?

I think it is dependent on how many friends/acquaintances/boyfriends they have. Once they have none left then I become a possibility again, albeit a small one.

Yes, the birthday card one. At first I thought she was contemplating suicide when she called me up. But it was much worse...

What do you do when they contemplate suicide? Call the police?

Heck no, they never say what they mean.

But what if in one instance they really do mean it? For instance, someone like adriana, who did hurt themselves intentionally, I could see doing that.

They get very depressed. Sometimes this is natural but more likely it is induced by narcotics or alcohol. Like I said you have been lucky so far...

No, it begins to run out just as soon as they begin to want you.

In that case, my luck will probably last a fairly long time -- unless something drastic happens.

Now that is being too optimistic for sure. Unless you look and act like the creature from the black lagoon they will be a major part of your life. Come to think of it, I saw the creature over at Hard Times and he has become a real party animal. The gals just could not get enough of him. He is a real "sauce monster." Can't seem to hold his liquor. It took 10 security guards to throw him out of the place and half the girls left with him. So you see, they destroyed the creatures life and they will yours too.

But if you are not in places where women loiter around, then nothing is likely to happen...

Unless you have found a quiet spot right alongside the Mars rover there is no spot where they do not loiter.

Just wait till you have a nice car and millions of dollars, or just look like you do...

Wear good clothes, lots of ridiculous jewelry. Drive a sports car. Manicures and pedicures, styled hair. Tell them you are a baron or a producer of motion pictures.
