With some people I met, and to a limited extent also with me, anxiety and/or depression were much more significant barriers to finding a relationship than autism as I experienced it. There are certain things about e.g. stimming and not looking at people when talking to them that may be a bit off-put...

Apart from support groups, AspieAffection (which you may want to join anyway), and here (and I wouldn't be too forward), I think that covers most of the reasonable places to look. Other than that, I would agree with the general sentiment that you should look for partners both outside as well as insi...

Nope. It's as simple as falling off a log. If there were any tricks to it, the population would have dwindled away to nothing eons ago. That said, there is some technique to doing it well , but that's all craft and finesse, learned over time. Losing my virginity was strange for me because as a guy ...

Last time I used okc seriously I deliberately ruled out taller girls, and whoever taller girl show interest (and as usual they don't read the profile's info well) I flatly point them in a first reply or first message something like: "Look, before wasting each other's times, you're 168 tall, I am 16...

I'm still not entirely sure how pecks work, how much if any saliva should there be on my lips or am I just brushing them against her dry? In practice they won't be bone dry. If you're that concerned about making an impression then just make sure they're not chapped. Does a closed mouth kiss transit...

Did anybody else's luck pick up when they finished school? I'm hoping my living situation is to blame and not my personality. My luck changed about 2/3 of the way through doing my Master's degree. The pool of women was much smaller but I left myself open to meet new women through going out with col...

partner: head tilted slightly left, eyes closed, lips parted. Self: head tilted slightly right, eyes closed on contact, lips parted This looks like you have the right basic idea. Maybe first have a hand on her arm, just gently (no grabbing), and to her shoulder or back and around her waist if you'r...

I do this all the time. I'm not sure there's anything more than anecdotal reporting to suggest it's AS-related, though.

I sense a bit of confusion over what happened in Ireland, so I'll try to spell it out: In Ireland a woman's right to an abortion in the case of a threat to her life is in some sense constitutionally protected , but a spelling-out of what constitutes a threat to a woman's life is not fully specified ...

I was on my fifth or sixth date with my current girlfriend when I told her. My policy is to not tell close friends/women I'm seeing until they know me well enough to understand what makes me different, and that I'm not different in some other way that they might not like (e.g. they might have known ...

It depends on what you mean by "proof". 1. Axioms in a proof system can be proved merely by their assertion, because they were taken as axioms. Obviously this doesn't suffice to establish a proof of the soundness of the axioms, which I assume is what you mean, but my point merely is that this kind o...

Consider who ran against Obama. Super-Schmuck, the Magic Mormon. Public perception of Obama in purple states was not negative enough by the time of the election for any of the 2012 Republican field to win - better the devil you know, and so on. Jon Huntsman might have won another swing state or two...

Many right-wing commentators and politicians loved to make Carter comparisons prior to the 2012 election, especially when it comes to the aftermath of the Arab spring and especially the attack in Benghazi, though in the long run I doubt either of these will come as significant blemishes to Obama's p...

Why is it that people, particularly those of a right-leaning economic persuasion, hate Jimmy Carter so much? He deregulated the airlines, was opposed by Ted Kennedy for being a conservative Democrat, and the whole stagflation thing was an exogenous shock -almost everyone in the West was suffering f...

Again, not going to address the actual right or wrong but instead stick to the politics? I've been consistent through multiple administrations on these issues, so has much of the libertarian movement, it's the civil liberties left that seems to only care when a Republican is in office. Well, maybe ...
