I don't know if it is part of Aspieness, but I do know that I have a slight (ok all pervasive big) problem with that final step. I think that there are several aspects to it: - first is definitely the aspie bit - I love getting into the groove - so whether it's taking things apart, putting them toge...

Just my thoughts:
The first tends to be "I know what I think you are, and you're so beneath me".
The second tends to be "What the heck are you going on about, I want you to go away".

I don't really get fashion. I like the look of some things, and am still a little nonplussed as to how differently I get treated when I wear 1 - comfortable clothing 2 - a suit 3 - little black dress and high heels If you look at the actual bits of clothing when they're folded/bundled up, there isn'...

On the notes for my ASD diagnosis, it was noted that I was wearing a summer dress on a windy cold autumn day (not verbatim, but that was the gist). It's not any one thing that equals an ASD diagnosis, it's the lump sum. Hence the "triad of impairments". If you have a "duo of impairments", you may ha...

It's normal. Comedians use it as material for jokes. I use my eyes to signal. I choose a side, say left, and make sure my eyes are looking to the left and front (sort of looking at and therefore signalling where I intend to go), then go to the left. A lot of NTs use that kind of thing for unspoken c...

I agree that it can be very upsetting. This is where the area of personal responsibility comes in. It took me 40 years to learn it. So, I have a friend, and I really like them, and want to meet, spend time with them. They do the flip flop thing, and it ruins my day, and the couple of days after that...

I think the key is that it's not causing THEM too much of a problem.

I bet that if you had a breakdown, they'd be surprised, "Oh, but she copes so well..."
AAAARGH *turns into axe murderer out of frustration*

Oh, certainly, but the context was 2 weeks from first meeting, not 2 weeks from first signals of interest. They need not be mutually exclusive. If you are interested and still have access to those girls who told you the 2 week-from-first-meeting rule, you could double check with them. I suspect tha...

Lol. If she's been putting out signals(those blasted physical cues keep coming back into the conversation, don't they?) for two weeks, and you've been ignoring them, the chances are that she would probably find it offputting, think you don't find her attractive, and give up. However, if a woman is R...

The more you say, the more we get an idea as to how much attention should be paid to criticism from her. :lol:

The fact that they're yelling out in class repeatedly means that they're bullying you, and the teachers are not stopping it. It's now the accepted group behaviour of this pack to ridicule you. One way to stop is is to do the unexpected, and make it hurt them. So when someone does the facepalm thing,...

Yeah, it's the extremes thing.

"Wow, you're so clever!"

Then 2 minutes/2 hours/2 days/2 months later, in a disbelieving tone "Erm, it's really easy/obvious, you can't do/see that?"

And through it all, I'm just existing, carrying on in what to me is an average manner.

MummyofPeanut, I think that aspies can have communication problems and can be obsessive. However, that does not preclude the non-aspie you're trying to communicate with from being an obnoxious MIL playing favourites with her family, and favouring the DIL she might have more in common with, i.e. a si...
