 Forum: Love and Dating   Topic: My parents don't want me to date because of covid.

This is what the pandemic is doing, it's causing people to argue or even turn against each other, because some people are more paranoid than others. Are both your parents vaccinated? The whole point of the vaccines is to protect people from getting ill from COVID if they do catch it, and also having...

I think I just want to be neurotypical for the sake of being in the majority. I don't like being in a minority that gets misunderstood and stigmatized.

I'm Aspie but I'm subconsciously focused on people. Even my special interests were centred around people. Social approval from others is more important to me than learning facts. And neurotypicals don't do everything to prove themselves to others, they do sometimes do some things because they enjoy ...

If I was ever forced to make such a video it would be: "Hi everyone. I'm going to show you how to ________ . Step 1 .... Step 2 ... Step 3 ..... (demonstrations with ambient noise deleted). For a written summary of instructions go to the (time) mark. Thank you!" Done. Wherever possible I ...

I usually come up with ways to make my work easier, without doing less. I'm also good at improvising.

I know what it is, I just thought there was a term for it. It's like they're jokingly arguing with you. I like when people do that.

I hardly burp, but when I do it sounds like a small gulping sound and makes me jump, and leaves a mild taste in my mouth of vomit (but only mild and for a couple of seconds). I find it such a gross sensation, I never know how people manage to do that several times every day, much louder too. :eew:

I hate Google and YouTube. Google is full of useless outdated information or it comes up with the results you aren't looking for. YouTube has become a money grabbing zone where they outsmart you in watching their sh***y ads because they panic when you have found a way to bypass their ads so you don...

I know I should get it, but I’m scared it might do more harm than good. I’m worried about my cerebral palsy & psoriasis. I wonder will it be ok for Aspergers people? What if I lose feelings in my legs or my arm, it happened before. Speak to your doctor if you're concerned. Having Asperger's/aut...

When people yell or argue with you, but they're totally on your side and are being nice. It's a pleasant sort of thing. I can't explain unless I use an example. So here's an example. A few weeks ago I had taken a week off work, but a meeting was scheduled halfway through that week and I felt like I ...

I was not really obvious, but I did go through a phase of wringing my hands when I was about 12-14. But I have a couple of videos of me as a younger child and you wouldn't think I was on the spectrum at all; I was sociable and didn't stim or display any awkward body language. Plus one of them was fi...

I understand that older people wouldn't have had a diagnosis, but if I was born in 1960 and behaved out of character like I did when I started school in 1994, I probably would have been expelled straight away and put into an institution or something, but I don't know what my diagnosis would have bee...

I was diagnosed age 14, back in 2005. I think my last couple of years in school would have been better without the diagnosis, as I wouldn't have been singled out for any 'special' treatment. I went to college when I was 16 and didn't mention the diagnosis so it didn't cause any issues. When I was d...

There’s no “right way” to respond to someone passing away. Even neurotypicals grieve in different ways. Don’t listen to anybody who judges you when it comes to how you grieve. I've heard multiple times that everyone grieves in different ways and that there is no "right way" to grieve. My ...
