My Snap benefits(food stamps) have gone up expedentially and of coarse I got my Trump check for $1200 so I eat really well these days.Honestly life has been better for me the last few months,I wear my mask in public but go out when needed.I really can't complain about quarantine life. I see I think...

No significant differences from before -- people still call me "weird" for wanting to keep my distance, work alone, and avoid human contact, only now they say it all through a breathing mask.

I think that the times we are in are hard but I found myself getting much more attention from others and more opportunities during this pandemic. What is your experience? It seems to have a humbling effect on people. Also it slowed down envy because everyone is in the same boat as you.

Does having friends on the spectrum help you gain a better relationship with your self?

I don't think it's about feeling I think it is more so people with asd don't perceive these emotions from others therefore they dont respond in the expected way. It's more about perception than feeling or intelligence. But the former can lead to the latter.

For me, the issue is less whether someone else could love me (though granted I haven't had anyone I've met in person so much as look at me twice), but more can I truly love someone else. I enjoy some eye candy and have even developed a couple of things along the lines of crushes (though I can count...

That is good to hear. "How?" and "why?"someone feels some way or about something. are key words so many people are very quick to jump to conclusions. It seems like asking those crucial questions is a great place to start. In sympathy If you Google "Active Listening," y...

Romantic love is unlikely. The best I could hope for is kindness or to be treated like the friend or little sister. I am a person people ask for information about things, not a person any man would ask out on a date. I hope I'm proven wrong on this. I don’t want to sound harsh but.... at age 55, yo...

i am still not convinced that any of the love i have ever received from people who aren't my parents is genuine. i have done nothing to deserve being loved. i think people just stuck around cause they could use me for free food or a ride in my car. i have no idea how i am empathy-wise. I understand...

I’m married, coming up for sixth anniversary later this year: so I’d have to say yes. We do have problems arising from my lack of empathy : but she does explain how & why she’s feeling in detail quite often, and the same for other people. This helps a great deal because it means I can do sympat...

Sometimes as a person with asd I feel like all relationships I get into will end bad because without empathy people tend to wrongly think you have no emotions or don't care about them. Back to the topic do you think someone can love a person like you or just form a fake relationship for money Visa s...

Disabled! Suppose that someone offered to cure you instantly. How many of us would say no? I don't think we can fool ourselves. We have serious deficiencies (especially in empathy) and I think if we are honest we will have a very hard time convincing ourselves that they are not deficiencies. This i...

A skinny smart handsome cisgender neurotypical extrovert white man civil engineer that I had a crush on when I was 21 (36 now), had the nerve to tell me that "you don't care about anyone except yourself!" It appeared , to him (and even me), that he :evil: cared :evil: about a lot of preci...
