Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is like saying you can not learn to pull your hand out of the the fire. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12527 20131111 06:39:53
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut that is instinctive. With women, I feel as though my timing has to be right to increase my chances of getting a yes. #12528 20131111 06:46:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTiming is very important. When they are talking to you they are the most receptive. That is the heat of the moment so to speak. There is no better time. If you do not make a move very early your chances decrease greatly. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI have been having trouble doing that, lately. My confidence has dropped substantially since starting uni. That 3rd year girl (21) stayed behind after class just now and asked me if I wanted to look at her notes. I came across as very indecisive  she kept saying 'so what do you want to do?'. We walked for about 5 minutes out of class; the only thing I could do for her was open a door that she couldn't open, which isn't saying much. We just had casual conversation  where we were living, how long it took us to get to uni, etc. And silly me forgot to ask her out again. #12530 20131112 22:38:40
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat did you say when she asked you?
It does not seem that is bothering you enough yet. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12531 20131112 22:41:38
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI said something like "okay, I'll have a look". It's definitely bothering me  it could be that she is waiting for it, who knows. But even so, I don't know if I could take her anywhere she would enjoy. I haven't dated before. #12532 20131112 22:45:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSounds like she would have enjoyed anything. You are worrying about appearing cheap or inexperienced but you have not learned the major thing. Nothing is as bad as appearing indecisive. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12533 20131113 02:00:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMaybe I could email her, ask her for her number then call her? #12534 20131113 05:43:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTry it but next time do not hesitate. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12535 20131113 09:24:03#12536 20131113 09:58:41
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWell of course she has a bf, probably 6 or 7. That might be best for you. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12537 20131113 10:01:45
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI don't want to get involved with girls who have boyfriends. I will probably end up being hurt emotionally in the end. #12538 20131113 10:22:32
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOriginally, you said you were not interested in commitment. Ones that are already partially involved are perfect for that.
You are still holding on to concepts that will not work in the real world. If you remain detached, hurts are impossible. If you are not then hurts are in your future. You will have to ask yourself which hurts more, being alone or being dumped? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12539 20131121 05:30:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI still don't know exactly what I want. I can't seem to find the right balance of detachment. With too much detachment, I lose interest in women completely. With too little, I think about specific girls too often, which is not good in the longterm of course. #12540 20131121 05:36:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI think you are trying to analyze this like it was some sort of DE you need to solve. Why second guess her motives and who cares what her reasons are. Of course you should reply. What she thinks of you is extraneous. Are you looking for a wife or a gf? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12541 20131201 11:32:44
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI understand what you mean. I am trying to do this, but I can never completely achieve it. Doing something else helps me become detached, but it is still always temporary. #12542 20131201 11:54:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat is the best one? You have no idea what it entails when one or more of them says yes! You know nothing about that girl but if you date you will... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12543 20131201 11:57:00
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI think it is better because at least if she is not the right one for me, I will at least have found out the hard way, rather than thinking about it more. #12544 20131201 11:57:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
That one, did you reply yet? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12545 20131201 12:03:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOh, her? I've pretty much stopped caring about her. Takes on average 1 month to respond and avoids me in person, clearly not someone to take seriously. I responded to her "sorry for being late" email 2 weeks ago, got nothing back, as expected. #12546 20131201 12:06:46
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMaybe she is shy and emails are not a good way to ask. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12547 20131201 12:10:44
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShe's not shy, she hangs around other guys all the time engaging in hearty conversation with them. Surely, she has simply decided that I'm not worth her time, so she has found some others who are, right? #12548 20131201 12:13:27
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAsking for a date is clearly best done in person. The phone gets poor results and there is less chance by email. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12549 20131201 12:15:02#12550 20131201 12:18:32
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAny kind of exchange is pretty weak by email. That is why you should use it sparingly. The phone is only a little bit better. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
