1. You’re inconsolable. I don't want you to console me. What I wish is for you is to sit down with me and break things down to me. Not only the what but the reasoning behind it. People who are exhausting for others due to being inconsolable are people who want attention for their suffering but the ...

I think that we should just accept that some people are born with the inability to be optimistic, I know such a person with ASD who I love dearly. Most of us struggle with what life deals us, and those who can only envision doom and gloom can extinguish our hopes and optimism in a flash. We have to...

For what it's worth, there's research that says, yes, we do tend to make a bad first impression and it is based on visual and auditory cues, not on the things we actually say.

We got into an argument over this to the point she started crying and accusing me of arguing all the time. I have been accused by this by her and others in the past. 99.9% of the time the argument is over facts like this or near facts. I always take the facts side and yet I am accused of arguing. I...

Love really is a very random thing at times. I think the problem with these discussions is that love or attraction can be seemingly random at an individual level and are quite predictable at a larger scale. You can often not tell why average looking person A fell in love with average looking person...

People think Im a little weird, but they dont jump to the conclusion of ASD. Just a general sorta-odd teenager. I think people in this thread don't all draw the line of what passing for NT is at the same point. If passing for NT means that no one - except maybe your own parents and the psychologist...

Always is an exaggeration. They don't literally mean always. However, most people tend to have a better first impression of and tend to enjoy spending time with people who are generally positive and happy more than with people who are grumpy, hopeless and negative. There are of course situations whe...

I don't have ADD. Until age 18 or 19 I had social anxiety that was more debilitating than my autism. People definitely noticed something wrong with me, but I think they rightly assumed the issue to be social anxiety and might not have noticed anything caused by autism. Due to not interacting much wi...

I think you should just ask her what's going on. If she doesn't give you any answer then it's very likely that she's trying to cut you off. If that's the case then just let her; you can't force someone to be your friend. Also, guys often do have some shared interests with girls. Keep an open mind! ...

I think the problem of some may also be what kind of information and not just how much. Many of the most sociable, extroverted people who make good first impressions tend to reveal quite a bit of information early on. However, early on they don't reveal information that can easily be used against th...

I think in some ways people of the opposite sex expect you less to adhere to certain gender stereotypes. They expect you less to be just like them. That can make it easier to get along with them if you don't fit in perfectly well. However, if you do fit in well enough, there may be a better connecti...

That won't work Mr Inquisitor. Her point was that you don't need a partner... at all... ever. So, the two of you did further discuss this? Usually I'd say red_doghubb is spot on. It's an empty platitude they think will make them look emphatic and they don't wish to further engage in the topic or th...

rdos can give you more concise information on his views but here's a long conversation about this topic that took place a year ago: https://wrongplanet.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=368088&start=150 Warning, it's a pretty argumentative thread and originally not about this topic. The discus...

Just pointing out that this ND courtship thing is something the majority of people on this forum (who are presumably ND) do not agree with rodos on. If you let him explain about ND relationships you'll get a lot about telepathy (which he does not call telepathy but mind to mind connection) and how ...
