For example, being around children is now very difficult. Loud rooms with several people talking trig...

The question is what type of website. I will be honest, various types of websites require various levels of work, and sometimes multiple workers. Probably the easiest website to do on your own is a blogging website. Content websites are a good model, but you have to know how to target and build up a...

My interests are Politics and current affairs and music (listening to). All i can think of there, is owning your own record store but i think unfortunately the Internet has killed record stores as a viable commercial enterprise. Vinyl music stores won't be killed by the internet, but success there ...

Any job that involves a significant amount of writing or research. Some require statistical analysis, but most require an understanding of language and writing style. Basically an editor, a technical writer, etc. Believe it or not there is also a difference between general customer interaction and b...

would probably be culturally incompatible with most IT jobs, and would be unlikely to be hired for an IT job due to multiple factors? I enjoy computer programming, as well as collecting operating systems and older computers, and would like to get a computer-related job of some kind (preferably prog...

Okay, My parents are expecting me to be in a relationship so they can have grandkids. I happen to be asexual because I'm not comfortable with doing the you-know-what. Whenever I tell them that I'm asexual, they think it's a bunch of nonsense. I tried to get a guy to like me in high school, but he s...

Why is the dating world so scrutinizing and merceless? at least that is from what i have read on here and others places. the job world can accomodate to you a lot LOT more than the dating world. For a number of (very good) reasons. The top of which is safety. I can go through the list but compatibi...

Less time for social stuff means more time to create, discover, invent stuff? You need people that are not constrained by social conventions. But I guess, it's a continuum and too much can cause problems as in severe ASD. Bingo. The reality of human beings evolution on a societal level is actually ...

I am of the very strong opinion that group therapy should be avoided for anybody on the spectrum (asperger only groups being an exception, but those can be social groups for the most part). Group therapy was largely designed for people who have NT thought patterns and relate well through theory of m...

Hello everyone, I'm new here, but I found your site while searching for help so I figured this would be a good place to start. I self-diagnosed myself with Asperger's a couple of years ago. I would definitely count as having the disorder if tested, I just never have. I've been managing alright for ...

There is a number of reasons, but the very fact you are even asking this question demonstrates how niave you are about modern adult relationships. People have sex outside of marriage because it allows them to understand compatibility with a future partner. The whole no sex before marriage thing is a...

For me intellectual compatibility is very important. I would want my partner to challenge me intellectually and help me to progress and vice versa. I was once in a relationship with a person who wasn't as intellectually endowed as me. It may sound harsh but after some time together I started feelin...
