I’ve recently found out that I haven’t even been masking that well.. my now fiancée said she knew when we first started dating. Today she listed off a long list of things she has to do differently just to date me.. I didn’t realize how different I truly was and difficult, and thought I was masking ...

I'm not saying you, but because the autism spectrum is becoming wider by the year, it seems that anybody can look at one or two personality traits of themselves and put it down to an ASD, get a diagnosis by exaggerating on the assessment, and then if anyone argues they just say "everyone with ...

Do you mean that because you were diagnosed later in your life than others, you may actually not be autistic and you feel you are faking being autistic and deceiving others? Yes this is what I mean. I’ve masked all of my life and it started to take a massive toll on me to the point I was burnt out ...

I am starting to feel imposter syndrome about actually having autism because I wasn’t diagnosed at a young age. Can anyone else relate?

She's your partner and fiancée so she's expecting you to have a deeper level of connection than you'd have with other people. There's an expectation that you will hear her, understand her, and respond to her by interpreting nuance, body language, and spoken words. That's what romantic relationships...

It's more likely that a partner would pick up on your idiosyncrasies. Are your friends close or casual? I have 1 close friend and the rest are casual I’d say, kind of close friends? I’m not sure. My parents haven’t said anything about my communication either though, that I can remember. It’s just m...

No one used to ever correct my communication style, except for one friend who yelled at me, “Why don’t you ever make eye contact!! !” In High School. I wasn’t even aware that was an issue. No one used to, that is, until I got into a serious relationship. My fiancée stated that I don’t listen to her ...

Please post a random fact. I’ll start: The term loose cannon was coined because, mainly in the 16th - 19th century when cannons were widely used, they had to tie them down in ships. If a cannon got loose it’d cause all kinds of damage. Hence, loose cannon. Also, a Bald Eagles wingspan can be up to 8...

How come your school didn't pick up on it? When I was a kid I wasn't really Aspie at home (just hyperactive) but at school I seemed more Aspie and the teachers picked up on it and forced my parents to diagnose me so my parents felt pressured into it. God knows how things would be if they had a chil...

Where I live, it's quite unusual to have snow in late April. The latest accumulating snowfall in 150 years of recordkeeping was on April 25th. We've had snow mixed with rain in May, but with no accumulation. Do you feel down when there's a late snow? I prefer cold weather and snow, so snow would ha...
