Thanks for this. Yes, this is disturbing when it happens, and somewhat disturbing when it goes away even, because you wonder: what's really changed to make me feel so different? Did I misremember how awful that was? It's just nice to be validated that yes, that experience is real, and yes, it can c...

^ That was Egypt in the old good days. A girl who strongly believes that love in relationships is an illusion that lasts at max 2 years, and the only reason for relationships is having a kid..... ...that's a Red flag, no? If you don't like kids or flings it is. The kid thing is something I may have...

Hi everyone, This is mainly geared towards people who have had a significant period of burnout relating to long term shutdown, before an official dx of AS(and how you managed after a dx) in and around mid-life age. I can name the month and year that it started for me. November, 2007 before diagnosi...

Thank you all for the replies. It wasn't after two months when I wanted an introduction. We spent one and a half years together, and I was patient, but I just couldn't take being the bad person who should be afraid of her parents anymore. I wanted to make sure I'm welcome. I didn't want to spend $1...

Yeah, once I notice someone ignoring my expressly stated boundaries (more than once), I'm out. And pushing them continuously would make me run. Fast. The reason why is: 1. social contact is hard enough without the other party adding more stress to it and 2. it's hard to trust people as manipulators ...

Maybe what I meant to say was that you actually proved it's not about women/men having certain standards which are set in stone somewhere. It's about personal preference. Actually that could be a good thing to keep in mind: rejection is just about the other person's individual preference and therefo...

I haven't had to deal with too much in the way of sexual harassment. I do notice people making the sign of the cross when I sit next to them on the bus, though. Huh? Why would they do that? She must be a goth lol. Grannies always give me a look of pity when handing me a Salvation pamphlet. Tbh gran...

I honestly don't think I can. If Wrong planet is any indication, I'm not interested in the vast majority of women here. Many aspie women are LGBT or gender queer and while I'd date a bisexual girl, i either can't date LGT/GQ women or obviously they don't want to date me. Wrongplanet is an oversensi...

I personally find it difficult not to be bitter. I'd describe it as feeling hurt because specific people seemed to like me at first, but turned out not to want me. It makes me feel like no one can want me. Like I'm nothing. Not worth loving. That makes me feel angry, but I'm not sure why. I don't t...

I remember another post from a user on this forum who's response to someone's concern or complaint "what do you want me to do about it?" somehow offending the other person. That is just another example. The polite way of asking the same question would be "What would you like me to do...

How about "I'll be here when you're ready." The "what do you want me to do about it" is extremely rude. "I'll be here when you're ready." ... To me, it would depend on the nonverbal cues. "what do you want me to do about it" ... At first glance, definitely th...
