### Algorithm mistake by stefy at the FP1

1.check if she's single.you can do this easily.just ask one of her friends if she's single but casually.just mention it somehow.
2.if she has a boyfriend then
3.check if they're happy together.
4.if yes then this is where you give up.
5.if not then pursue to step number 6.
6.break them apart somehow.you can maybe make her realize that he's not right for her.if this step is done then go directly to step 9.
6.casually in a conversation with her close friend (possibly different than the one in step 1) ask what type of guys she likes.
7.if you're not her type change yourself a little her brain and time will do the rest.
8.if you are then great!
9.ask her out until she accepts to go on a date with you.

There are two statements labelled 6

Statement 9 seems to be very tedious

The algorithm is not very definitive as how to be casual is not defined nor is how to determine what kind of a guy the concerned person.

Both 6's and number 7 will not work in practice. But the algorithm is clever.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Why not? Do you have your own algorithm?

Also, step 8 is not much of a step.

Did you look at the last step?

Although I use the rule of 3, I do know guys who firmly believe that you should hammer away until she capitulates.

Step 8is something like return true; in C++
