In hindsight, it's actually not as hard as it seems. When I was a kid, I overcomplicated it and thought it was way harder than it actually was. Be friendly and polite. Smile. Ask people questions about themselves; don't just talk about your own interests. Be genuinely concerned about what they care ...

A BMI of 30 isn’t great—but it isn’t so bad, either. It is bad. Maybe not immediately, but in 10-20 years from now, it will exacerbate a number of health problems, and it's harder for people to lose weight when they get older. So it's better to build good habits now than to have bad habits ingraine...

I don't think we should generalize, or lump everyone whose NT or everyone whose ND in separate categories. A lot of times, how people act is based on who they are individually as a person, or in context of how they get along with the other person. Maybe it's not an Aspie or NT thing, maybe it's just...

Has anyone had a girlfriend who wasn't annoying? Or are they all annoying? 1) Yes, I have. 2) Don't generalize by gender. Just because someone has P or V doesn't make them any more or less likely to be annoying. 3) If you're having the same exact problem with various different partners, then maybe ...

There is a stigma against men on a societal level. But in terms of our individual lives, we have the choice on who to surround ourselves with. It's important to re-evaluate your social circle. Surround yourself with positive open-minded people who have your best interest in mind. Weed out the toxic ...

If you're not having success on dating apps, you need to change up your bios and especially the photos. Make sure the lighting is balanced. Have eye contact to the photo. Pics should be clear - not blurry. Don't have pics with obstructions on your face (i.e. mask, hat, sunglasses). Take pics outdoor...

The main problem here is that you think too much and not do enough. Stop theorycrafting so much. Don't come up with any more theories. Get a real social life. Yes, getting out of your comfort zone is hard but that's the only solution. There's no work-around. So many of these things that you personal...

When I was in my early 20's, I used to have a fear of driving. Partly, the stimulus of the road. Partly, fear of messing up. I got my license and my first car several years later than most people do. For anyone who is in a similar dillemma right now, I have a few tips to help. 1) Fear of causing dam...

Servings are a fuzzy measurement. Track calories.

Regarding the macronutrients: You'll need enough protein to maintain muscle. But whether the rest of your calories comes from carbs or fat is totally preference. As long as you have a caloric deficit, you'll lose weight regardless.

What Muse said.

Aspergers and OCD are not valid excuses for this kind of behavior.

Being desperate isn't good for you or the other person. It's not good for you because a desperate mindset lowers your self-esteem; the discomfort and lack of confidence makes guys less attractive. It's not good for the other person either, because that person deserves to be with someone who truly ca...

Then don't date her, for her sake. She deserves someone who actually cares about her.

"Opposites attracts" "Birds of a feather flock together". Phrases are just phrases. It depends on context. Does what you have common outweigh what you don't have in common. Also, a lot of it just comes down to attraction on a natural level. Looks, the energy you both give off, an...

Because there is.

There are numerous studies that look at this on a larger scale. https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2 ... gap-facts/

but you choose to ignore it because of anecdotal evidence (i.e. signs you see on doors).

You don't always need machines. You can jog outside. And there are lots of bodyweight/calisthenics exercises.
