Which is more important to a girl, a man's hardware or software? I heard that women don't really care about a man's hardware. Is this true?

How do you deal with it when someone won't admit to what happened. Do you still give them the benefit of the doubt, take them at their word?

Some people consider mistakes intolerable, which is surprisingly common. I've seen it in the education system when teachers are too strict to their students and punish incorrect answers instead of laziness (the latter leads to the former, but there are many other things that lead to poor homework results too that shouldn't be punished)

How to deal with them? Well, a maths forum isn't really the best place to ask such questions!

Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha! I think someone is messing with you!

If not, then seriously... stop worrying about what girls want or don't want or whether you're good enough or not... just talk to anyone you like in a friendly and sincere way, just like how you'd talk to anyone else....maybe throw a few subtle compliments or whatever.

How do I apply math to electronics?

I've noticed that the circuits I find online and in these learning labs never give an explanation of what's going on in the circuit.

When I was in the Navy, the instructors traced every path in the schematic diagrams, explaining what was happening (eg. What was turning on or off).

Where can I find this type of learning and instruction?

Is it just laziness that they don't include a detailed illustration of what's actually going on in each circuit diagram?

Unless a circuit is particularly strange, you are often expected to be able to figure out what is happening in the circuit from what you have learned previously in 'proper' learning. I've never seen a 'learning' kit explain anything of use, but I don't think it's laziness, there's a lot of basic stuff to understand which is beyond the scope of the kit, where would you draw the line in the explanation of the circuit?
The only book I can think of is this:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Introductor.../dp/0071004319
It is a good book despite the fake looking reviews.
There are probably some decent youtube videos these days, but with so much stuff available it could take a while to find the good stuff.

Which is more satisfying: a girl or applying math to electronics? If you could only have one, which would you choose?

What a strange question. What are you worried about?

I'm afraid the girl will detract from my career, or ruin it. I wonder if it's just better to be single-minded toward applying math to electronics, and maximize that by sacrificing the girl.

Why aren't there many girls who are interested in math and electronics? Why aren't there many dishes in engineering? Why can gang members, murderers, mob hit men, and serial killers on death row get girls and not me?

might have something to do with your incessant whining.
