Why? Did her horoscope say that she'll meet her prince on a white horse exactly in 6 years, or is she in a relationship which will end exactly in 6 years? :biggrin:
I said a couple years ago no boys until after school (~8 years).

But I have since changed my position on the matter. I realized it's going to take me long enough to find such a strange person as it is.

You know, I haven't wanted to make my avatar a photo of me because my appearance is not usually relevant to what I am saying. But you just made me realize that maybe I should make it obvious that I am a woman lest people not know that there exist women like me, who enjoy what I enjoy and can do what I can do.

Did you know that Feynman -- a pretty clever fellow -- once said in http://www.fotuva.org/feynman/what_is_science.html" [Broken]:
I listened to a conversation between two girls, and one was explaining that if you want to make a straight line, you see, you go over a certain number to the right for each row you go up--that is, if you go over each time the same amount when you go up a row, you make a straight line--a deep principle of analytic geometry! It went on. I was rather amazed. I didn't realize the female mind was capable of understanding analytic geometry. [my emphasis]
!!!

That was only 40 years ago.

Well, what do you enjoy and what can you do? :tongue:

Btw, maybe you should write "I'm a woman." in your signature.

The same things that a lot of people do, but evidently I do them in a way that leaves people with false assumptions, which I can't see as being a good thing.

Yes, that is an idea.

Doing same things in different ways equals doing different things, in the view of the majority.

And well, regarding the people you care about, you can always correct their assumptions. As for the others, who cares!

It's easy! She closed her eyes so we couldn't see her and when she opened them, there we were. :rofl:

Welcome back honestrosewater.

Thanks. Nice to see you again.

I guess it was mostly the boy thing. I did also spend a lot of time learning about and talking to computers, but that probably would have fit quite well with PF.

So where does your avatar come from on PF? Kinda reminds me of finding a candle in the dark :smile: Boy you sure are popular around here!

Why, thank you. Since when are you in Florida? I thought you lived in Guam.
Yeah, I moved to Florida in September after a few months of traveling.

It's from http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/database/image.asp?id=13831" [Broken] by Gerard Dou. I think it evokes curiosity. Plus, it's pleasant to look at.

I don't mean that my avatar would need to be relevant, just that http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=physical+attractiveness+stereotyping" have shown that a person's physical appearance/attractiveness influences the judgements that some people make about them in other areas, e.g., goodness, intelligence, successfulness, and I would rather not make it a factor either way.

Well, nothing is perfect (including PF's perv filter, apparently :tongue2:).

You probably already know not to take anything I say seriously. That's okay though. I've been called worse things than a perv. I pretty much assume any guy is somewhat perv, until I find out otherwise. I have a sneaking suspicion most women are too, but they play their cards much closer to their chest. I think that's why they always want men to look at their eyes when they speak to them. They don't want to give away their hand.

Oh, you thought I was referring to you? :biggrin: Ditto on that being serious thing. I'm curious about what those other names were. They might come in handy someday.
