Online solicitations, where no response need be made if there is no interest, are equivalent to the latter.Although your tactful wording could serve as a model for rejecting an acquaintance, there is really no charming way, other than silence, to express, “I can’t imagine that it would be worth my while to meet you.’’ Dear Miss Manners: I can’t wrap my mind around those who find it acceptable to attempt to coerce their friends and family members into footing the bill for some unreasonable and ridiculous event that they have planned for themselves.Because I know, just as well as all of you do, that love doesn't really work like that.Human emotion isn't neatly ordered and rational and easily predictable.In a recent general education literature course focusing on the novels of Jane Austen, I included a new project to help students practice looking for textual evidence to support a character analysis.The project also prepared students for a discussion on how the characters in an Austen novel look for and evaluate a potential mate compared to dating practices in the US today.I’m a dreamer, I don’t drink, and I treat girls right.I’ve been burned by love before, though, so let’s take it slow.

It's also because we've actually done an awful lot of work into the maths of how to find the perfect partner.

I'd like to think that's why mathematicians don't really bother going on nights out anymore.

The thing is that I personally don't subscribe to such a pessimistic view.

For example, don’t claim that the character loves to garden if there is no evidence in the text that this is true.

To prepare for this project, I suggest that you pick a character early on and keep a running list of the character’s likes and dislikes and personality traits—be sure to note the passages and page numbers.
