What would you do in this situation?Follow

I'm a 20 year old woman and am in university. Today at the university library a guy who I have seen around campus a lot, but do not know, was using the computer two seats away from me. Well he did something odd, he asked me if I could help him with a physics problem, granted, it was a rather difficult problem. Since I'm nice and he was fairly attractive, I decided to help him out. Well it was a difficult problem and while we were trying to solve the problem, which took about 5 minutes, we talked about our other classes and school what-not. After solving the problem, he thanked me, and we went back to his computer two seats away from me.

Well about 15 minutes later he got up, apparently to leave, and on the way out he stopped by me and thanked me again for helping him. He seemed extremely nervous, and he handed me a piece of paper with his contact info on it. He said if I ever wanted to talk that I could contact him. I didn't know what to say, he was cute and he seemed nice and intelligent; after a few seconds passed he said "sorry this is really pathetic, I'm really bad at this, sorry and thanks for the help earlier... I have to get 'byeing'... I mean leaving, have a great day." He seemed extremely nervous around me and he quickly walked away after that.

I would like to hear the thoughts of the guys and girls here on this. What would you think of such a situation if it happened to you? Would you contact him at all via e-mail or Facebook? And what would you do the next time you ran into him on campus?

If you're interested in speaking to him, you should contact him.

If you're not, you shouldn't.

I bet he's a prince... and wants to meet a nice girl for long lasting love with, like in the movies. Or, he's the campus serial killer. Yeah most likely the latter. Call him either way to know for sure.

Jessica, I am disappointed, here I thought we had moment that only the 2 of us shared and you go and spoil it by posting it on the internet. I can never forgive this transgression and my heart will forever be closed to you. You will now never know the warmth of my heart or see the true depths of my coffers, I would of gladly spent every last dime of the fortune I inherited to make you happy, but now you are dead to me. Nothing more than hobo who got stabbed in an alley over a half a bottle of fortified wine. The only gift I would be willing to give you is herpes, it is the only thing you are deserving of now. You should of never broke my trust my once dearest Jessica.

Can someone help me with this question? "A disk-shaped cloud of hydrogen with mass 1030 kg and radius 108 km rotates about an axis through the center of the disk as shown with a period of 1000 days. After a long time, the disk contracts into a spherical star of radius 106 km. What is the new period of rotation?"

For years and years I thought that was "metaphysical", if only because I'd never heard of "pataphysical" before. I still sing it my way, just out of habit.

Woah woah woah, what if this is a legitimate poster asking for advice? Honestly, guys, I'm a little dissapointed in all of you.

I'm sorry, Jessica. I'm so, so sorry.

That's OK, I was a little disappointed in Jophiel for an unrelated reason.

At first I thought about how bad it would be if she were a legitimate poster, but then I was thinking of the likelihood of someone having that as their FIRST post on this forum.

Obviously not. In any case, I didn't say that I thought it was, just how bad it would be if she were. If being the key word.
