My wife recently got a "new" car. It's a Ford from about 10 years back and it includes a bunch of driver aids to make driving more comfortable, and somewhat safer. I do wonder how many more autistic people will be able to drive with things like blind spot detection, and automatic emergenc...

^That was my first thought: more chemicals. But supposedly this uses plant compounds that are actually less artificial than the stabilizing compounds that are used now.

Still, this is not very appealing.

Kind and loving first of all. Understanding and tolerant. Smart, creative, and at least a little bit unconventional and quirky.

I think I would have voted for: "I prefer to be clothed, and I would prefer if other people are also clothed in public, but if they want to be nude it's fine with me."

Yes, on the 9th and 10th. I keep thinking I'm over it but I'm not. It keeps coming back, and the ramifications keep growing. I don't even know what the emotion is. It's shame (if the person was right), or anger (if the person was wrong). I go back and forth. Mostly I feel incredulous. I'm sorry. Th...

I'm sorry how things turned out with this woman. I hope you find someone who understands and appreciates you.

I don't know what you should do, but if you are feeling burnt out and unhappy, it might make sense to look for a change. I don't know how easy it will be to find another job, so that's a consideration. But I wouldn't stay in a situation that sounds untenable for you. Best of luck.

If it's you reaching a point where you feel inadequate rather than the other person reaching a point where they find you inadequate, can you give yourself a chance and continue the relationship instead of withdrawing? Let them reject you if they must, rather than rejecting yourself. You might find t...

I'm sorry that you're feeling this way and that things are difficult for you. When something is hard and causes anxiety it's not due to "laziness" since that feeling of being anxious is much worse than enjoying leisure time would be, which is what the purpose of laziness would be. You are ...

I think you could do both: spend as much time alone as you need and only see friends occasionally. Even a boyfriend doesn't have to be around all the time.

I In my experience, that has never happened, that someone just asked me out all of a sudden out of the blue. It's always been more gradual, and leading to a suggestion that maybe we could get together sometime, or that we might cross paths again. Something less fraught. I have long suggested that m...

Talked to three people on the phone (whom I talk to almost every day), went out on my bike to go to the supermarket but realized I was feeling too weak and had to turn back after two blocks. Watched British crime dramas in bed. Life with ME/CFS (chronic fatigue).

I've been so exhausted with chronic fatigue (ME/CFS) and my sleep has been so crazily irregular that I worry I will be a burden to my partner.

I'm seeing posts about asking a woman out on a date that are very "all-or-nothing," in the sense that what is being envisioned is going up to a stranger and just asking her out, which I don't think is the easiest thing to do, for anyone, and is likely to lead to rejection because it's too ...
