The only video game I've ever played is Tetris. I suppose I also played Space Invaders a little, back when it was a tabletop game that you could play at a pizza place (it was built into a table that you could sit at to play), but not for very long before the game ended in my defeat, and I didn't wan...

I think I know what you mean although my own experience is from the opposite side. I have never been pretty and I think it's made my life much easier. I have had to fend off a lot fewer creeps (there are still some, regardless, at least there were when I was younger) and just haven't had any of my l...

I don't have personal experience with this, but birth control pills can be used to reduce the emotional effects and mood swings of PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome): Menopause is still far away for you, but since you asked about it, ...

What if you tried to communicate with your dad by email? You say he can't email. Would he just not answer you?

I haven't owned a car since the 90s and I don't want one because I am a terrible driver, so I can't offer any advice, but it seems like you have a lot of knowledge and are on top of things. Good luck!

I agree that there seems to be some kind of preoccupation with age. And I agree that age doesn't matter. I am 60 and I feel exactly the same as I did when I was 40. And I don't look very different either. I think that when I was a kid older people were much older, not only because people live longer...

I'm sorry I didn't read everything because this is a very upsetting subject, and I certainly don't need to read Zionist rants at a time when 30,000 Palestinians, mostly children and women, have been murdered by the Israeli state. It doesn't really make any difference to the outcome of the election i...

I'm not great at remembering the names of streets, but I love maps. I love to study maps and I can pretty well visualize where I am and where to go if I have seen a map of the area I am in. I rely on Google maps nowadays but I actually love folding paper maps where you can see a large area all at on...

I wish I knew more about how to access help for people with ASD. I don't have any advice, I'm just responding to let you know that people here on WP care about you and wish you well.

Are you thinking that you might be clumsy and would struggle to learn how to do a trade job? Because learning how the mechanics of things work seems like it would be well suited to ASD. (Although I am not very well versed in that sort of thing myself.) I have a friend who is undiagnosed but probably...

I think it's fine to start a new topic. It's better, in my opinion, than digging up a very old thread.

Can you eat the same things you have always eaten but just change the amounts of each? More meat, fewer or no french fries, and moderate amounts of potatoes, bread, and rice.

I don't think there are any real rules about that. Do what is right for you, don't let pressure from others interfere with your own needs, wants, and be true to yourself. As long its consensual and nobody is forced, guilted, pushed, or harmed, that is strictly between the individuals involved. Yes....

Dating is a numbers game anyway. You may need to meet 99 people who aren't a fit to find 1 person who does. The sooner you start, the sooner you'll get it. This has not been my experience at all. I am 60 years old (and a woman) and I have had two long term relationships (14 years and 15 years), one...

It is not "Tone Policing" to ask someone to lower their voice and speak in more pleasant tones.  Some of my former co-workers did not seem to understand the concept of an "Indoor Voice". And it was not just me asking them to moderate their voices.  People in other offices and on...

I don't think that I am particularly sensitive to clothing and things touching my skin (though I may be wrong about that because I only wear t-shirts and sweaters and am bothered by button-down shirts because they don't stretch...) but when I am in bed trying to get to sleep, I notice the slightest ...
