I imagine to most of you it's no mystery that Autism has some degree of a "childlike" stigma to it. Indeed, most of the social groups for people with autism are mostly focused on parents with autistic children. All the social media groups relating to autism I have joined are almost exclus...

Well, he has some good points.. especially here: "And just what are we ignorant about Courtney? We don't understand the struggles? War? Depressions (economic and personal)? Inflation? Double digit Prime Interest rates?" he retorted. He was born right after the great depression, grew up dur...

It took me years to finally get in a solid routine at the gym. There is some truth in saying you have to force yourself sometimes. The main thing I found that helped was having a solid partner who would go with me. We can always count on each other to be there after work and that makes it a little m...

those are very unusual boundaries to have, and with the unusual boundaries i have personally my immediate reaction is "you didn't know, it's okay" for him to be giving you a silent treatment for a week is a gross over-reaction imo, especially when you guys have been together over 3 years. ...

What should I do when he has outbursts? :heart: De-escalate is the best thing that comes to my mind. When I'm having an anxiety attack personally I prefer to be around people who can keep calm and help the situation. Some people in my life would prefer to get mad or emotional and start yelling, and...

I've pulled out in front of cars, twice that I remember, even though I swore up and down to myself I looked both ways. I wasn't in an accident and have never been at fault in 13 years of driving (8 professionally) so I think I'm doing something right. The reality of it is, when you do something so m...

Isn't this alone enough? That's strong evidence that you both can't be together and it can't possibly be because you aren't good enough for her.

You're not a bad person for it, but the reality of it is, he really likes you. Weather it's genuine or just sex, I'm not sure, but the unfortunate reality of this is, you're going to have to have a blunt conversation with him about this, which will involve you bluntly saying that you are not interes...

Absolutely. One of the best looking girls at the gym I go to lifts with a guy who can't possibly be taller than 5"6. I was 5"11 145 when I started, and I'm pushing 175 now. It makes me feel better emotionally, physically and psychologically.. and of course, more confident. There's many mor...

I read a comment on one of the L&D threads that struck a chord with me. Someone said that they had trouble leaving a relationship because this was the only woman who had ever shown an interest in them and even though things were toxic, it was hard to let the only love you'd known go. There's an...

I live alone too, and my go to's are usually one of these two: I'd get roommates, but there's too many risks involved and it's just easier to live by myself. I wish I could own a dog, but when I'm at work all day I don't want him to be home alone and potentially chewing up the couch. Both, are actua...

I think it's kind of sweet that you think she just wants to be friends. :lol: Bless you! :lol: I suppose it's wishful thinking on my part. When a woman tells me she's unavailable, I respect those boundaries.. I guess I just naturally assumed she would return me the same respect I give women in my l...

What do all of you think is happening here? Is it possible for people on the autism spectrum, with normal intelligence, to say "You're my boyfriend" and "I want to kiss you" without realizing that it is romantic? Or that a boyfriend might see that as evidence of cheating? Absolu...

I've had a friend I met out playing pokemon go that I've known the past 2 years, who recently decided to go all in on being friends. Which, normally isn't bad, I enjoy making friends out in the world.. I'm 29, she's 43. But short of pokemon go and a few things in our lives, we don't have a great dea...
