When I was a freshman in College, I hate my Physics' subject. Believe me, memorizing the formulas were so tough one, to solve a problem. To spiced it up, we have sitting arrangement in class. A nice young girl student, sitting beside me. She's so quiet-type girl, with a long black hair. After a week of having a class in Physics, she started to give me a strip of paper. On that strip of paper, a one line lyrics were written on it. She keeps on asking me, what's the title of the song. For the sake of learning process during the class, I did not pay attention to her personal intentions. The passing of strip of papers continued, until the end of that semester. For the last time, she asked me what's the title. I told her, I don't know the song's title. She said," You really have a wooden heart!" Then, I realized she has a thing on me. From the very start, I knew the title,"Wooden Heart". Too bad, I am too busy with my studies. I feel sorry for her, I just ignored her presence that time. To make it clear, I don't have a wooden heart. I had set my priorities to focus more on education.

hi, that is true,there were times that we feel our heart is no feelings or not ready to love because sometimes we are tired and afraid but sometimes we are not priority our love life and we focus to other things,like in your situation before,there are many reason we are not ready to love and it will depend upon the person if why.

I think you have your priorities right. Too many young people rush into romance ending up with the wrong person and in an unfortunate financial way.

hey, the same thing happens with me. I am more concern regarding my studies that most of the times people get annoyed around me that they always find me busy. But i think have given her a bit of attention. I mean its good to be focus but it is not bad to have friends around and believe me we need friends even to stay focus on studies.

I hated Math and Science when I was in school, but I still tried my best to pay attention. You should have asked if she was good at Physics she might have been able to help you study. Education is important and in class you should be focused, but outside the classroom you could have made time to talk to her. Even if you do not want to date her you could have tried to get to know her and be her friend. Having friends is important also. When I was in college I was already married and I always made time for my schooling and for my husband. I am a wife, a graduate student, taking quilting classes, working on my crafts and keep house, but yet I still manage a straight A average. It is hard sometimes, but I work hard and it is rewarding.

I think that everyone has a course that they took when they were in college that they really didn't like and for me, I would have to say that the subject that I couldn't stand was chemistry. When I was in that class, my friends and I did a lot of note passing. However, it wasn't about hitting on each other, it was instead that we were bored and looking for a way to pass that one hour three times a week. Perhaps you should have just looked at one of the notes that she was passing to you and told her and who knows what would have happened after that.

Education is expensive and should be your priority. It is good not to pass notes in class. You could possibly be her friend outside of class though. I am sure you do not have a wooden heart, but just a well turned head.

It's good you manage to stay focus on your studies and to be diverted on something like the "Wooden heart" thing that you had. It's really nice to think of the days passed. There are things that come our way that appears to be just like an ordinary thing, but they may be an opportunity for something. I have a lot of those experiences, but I treat it as spice of life, I may come back to them some other time, I may tackle first things first. Thanks and good luck

I have never heard that term and thought that the pieces of papers were to help you with learning, you sure surprised me as well as her surprising you too I guess. Being set on education is a good thing when you that is what you want.

Did this one really happened to you? It is strange for me. That girl is really weird, I might say. I would never do something like that. No matter how much I like a boy. I think it is a deviant behavior. And to pass a note to you every meeting? How would you know that she liked you? Man, you're not a fortune-teller of some kind! You should not think that you have a wooden heart you know. It's her fault that she didn't tell you.

Well, my personal opinion on this subject is that if you are in school, the main objective during school hours, is just to have to listen to your teacher in the explanation of the subject matter. You however at school, you can always find time to interact with your classmates during the hour interval. No one denies you! Maybe your friend was a little hard on you, she thought you the heedless, but you could repeat very well explain what you had to say, inherently that song, when the lesson was over.

If you are honest with what you say here, I guess it's tough to find a person who can concentrate on the subject fully like you. If I had been you at that time, I would probably have been closer to her.

Well, if you don't like her, at least be nice to her. Talk to her sincerely and tell her that you've got your sight set only on your priorities and she will understand. However, there's nothing wrong with being friends with her. Just being friends cannot harm anything.

That's sad. I guess you weren't really for her...

Maybe you should have said to her to not disturb you during class. It was pretty obvious she was trying to catch your attention. Or you could have said or done something, in a nice way, that you don't like to have any relationship with her as you wanted to prioritize your studies.

Sounds like she's the one that got away. If you can still contact her I would do it. Most girls like to be pursued but she knew what she wanted and was very creative in going after it. I know that sometimes we get focused on our studies and work can get in the way of life but you need to look around and see who looking at you.
