Creepy thing happened today. I saw this person downtown at the same restaurant as me. This person is someone who had an obsessive crush on me years back, and I didn't feel the same way basically. As a result, he had a slew of meltdowns or so and got a facilitator in group to push me out of a social ...

So maybe he didn't notice you before because of adhd. But why is he touching you...? I think Ettina may've hit the dot on the nose with your question! Also, he just wanted to get my attention so bad, but of course I felt very uncomfortable with him. Sorry I haven't been on here to respond properly ...

In this gaming group I'm in, an adult male, probably 30s, has ignored me numerous times whether I ask him a question or even when we are talking in a conversation. So, I started to do the same thing back. The last few times, he was starting to physically touch me like I was his buddy, and it made me...

Mitrovah and richardbenson, thank you for your realness, realism, and great perspectives. I love the combination of both. It's starting to make me a feel a bit better, and to realize that I need to keep making my own paths. If things aren't working out, I just need to move on. It's not like I don't ...

Namaste, maybe you should consider looking for a new job. Not all jobs will grade on social interaction like this. I know it's hard to have a job at all, but you have nothing to lose besides your precious time and energy for looking for a new job. Of course, you still want enough energy and stuff fo...

I feel heavy burdens and that I have to use up too much energy. I don't know why exactly. I just know it's not right and fear that people will not be there for me when I need them most. I know that I would want to do the same kindness for others, but it goes both ways. That kind of trust has to be e...

I don't think it's impossible for autistics to be friends with other autistics, or for autistics to have other friends. I do think it is harder for them in general though.

iSpy, did you get the name of the gas attendant, the date and time this was done? If so, you should file a complaint to the company or maybe even the Better Business Bureau. That way, your pain will not be without fight, and it will make you feel better about yourself for trying to fight back in a w...

Ever feel like you wanted to meet someone irl because they have the same interests as you, or their personality seems like it would match up with yours? Sometimes I feel that way. But I don't really have a reason to meet these people because they don't live near me, and I can't just pop up for no re...

KevinLA, I do not think you were asking for too much. He was asking a lot from you, but not too much, except that he should've offered you money in the first place rather than you have to ask him. If you had said you did not feel comfortable instead, that would've been okay too. I think this was tot...

I feel I learned social reciprocity by a willingness to be exposed to a variety of ideas- food, culture, well many things, and well, f*****g up infinite times too. I somehow realized that not everything I did was always my fault, and being old enough to be able to walk away from things or create my ...

You could also consider a fake account. I wouldn't use it for dating purposes, but if you just want to be around random people, or don't want to use your real name, you can do things that way if you still want an account, but none of your (real) personal information. You're "friends" on facebook sho...

Does your family know about your (potential) diagnosis? This could make a difference. I wouldn't expect them to understand it. If you don't want to say too much, you could try to prepare a more generic typed up response to answer all the important questions they might have for you. If you're able to...

When I was younger, I was very socially immature and my family tried to normalize me. Of course, they never could, and as a result, they could never figure out when I socially matured more until after so many bad things happened, partially as a result of their unnecessary pressures and lack of sophi...

I am personally afraid of contacts because of the whole idea of sticking something in my eye directly, losing and misplacing them, and I think they are more expensive than glasses in the long run too. I also feel like that if I wore contacts, people might approach me for the wrong reasons. Also, tee...
