Mightyzebra, I do have Asperger's. Sharkgirl, I think we are on the same page as far as what happens to us. Now, how should I fix it. Perhaps I seem uncomfortable. How do I prevent conveying that impression. Sometimes I'll have my hands in my pocket. I've begun to take them out so I able to reciproc...

Here's a situation that I run into fairly often. I'm an an event/function/hanging out with male friends (I'm a guy too). When we run into a female that one of them knows. Even if the girl only knows one of my friends, it seems as though, she will extend an offer to hug all of them except for me. Som...

haha. You're very optimistic. I think body language needs to be improved. I've read a couple books that have helped, but only to a certain extent. I have no problem with an appropriate level of eye contact.

I guess I'm just looking for a few ways I can improve and change a troubling trend.

A few years ago, I looked through my phone contacts list. What I found was concerning - Some 70% of the contacts in my phonebook are of the same gender (male). My Facebook friends list reflects a similar trend. Even among the 30% of girls/women in my phonebook, there are only a couple with whom I ha...

Thanks for the comments. Many of them have been helpful. But if you wouldn't mind, I'd like to get even more specific and then ask what you think. I always make good eye contact (but not so much that it would be creepy), I can ask questions and on occasion they will start talking but sometimes they ...

Let me change the scenario a little bit on you. I can ask girls questions about themselves all day long. One of the problems is that usually, we still don't "connect." I ask a question and they answer it. They may or may not ask a follow up question. But then there's the pause (somewhat awkward but ...

My friend (a male) invited me to an event tonight where we will be hanging out with a bunch of sorority girls. I'm a college age male by the way. I've been to similar situations where I've been invited to hang out for different events at sorority houses. Usually, the don't turn out that well because...

We're getting a lot of great replies. Keep it up guys. Wallourdes, by "more concerned," I meant the guys paid more attention, that is they spent more time talking to the girls. Monsterland, great tips. I'd love to hear more from you about other suggestions you may have. Please post again. King Henry...

I'm not sure exactly if this is what you're talking about or not, but alot of aspies have trouble with intonation. I was once told that I sound like a robot. Also, a lot of people either compliment or insult me (depending on the situation) because I sound so eloquent. I'm not sure how to sound norma...

Awkward. I knew a few people (all males) and they were more worried about the girls than about me. When I left and tried to say bye, I didn't really know how to respond when they expressed their joy that I was there. I said I enjoyed being there, but they kept saying, really, we had fun etc. I was r...

Getting people to keep the posts going?

I type keep the posts coming to dead topics that I still need answers to so it will go up higher in the discussion forum instead of getting buried never to be seen again?

Or were you talking about the event?
