this is a kind of issue you can only resolve yourself as it heavily depends on 
your environment. In general I have two remarks:

should attempt to make sense out of it, or at least attach it when sending an 

The other one is, we are all humans and we do love social interaction to 
various degrees. When you say you spend two weeks figuring that out, it would 
be very nice if you could explain what you have tried so far, how it failed 
instead of simply relying on others. :)
