I don't drive. I have enough trouble just crossing the street when I'm walking. I have a bit of trouble judging distance and the speed of on coming cars so I am super careful crossing the road if I am walking. One benefit of not driving is that I have not developed a big butt from sitting in a car t...

It seems to me that rather than telling lies or trying to persuade people to empathize with my disability or otherwise jumping through hoops to get around the the issue of debt related to disability that I should have some legal recourse to have the debt forgiven. I know I can do that with student l...

I don't know how much debt people normally have, the point is I haven't been able to pay it back. There is no point in my telling people that I made "a mistake" - that implies self blame as though I had done something morally wrong when in fact it has to do with disability.

I owe over $100, 000. It's bad. Really bad. And it is because I took out loans to survive. The employers business associates want to know why I have this credit history. If I tell them I have autism I don't think they will understand. Most people think of autism as mental illness or retardation or s...

I have an employer who is willing to work with me. The problem is that the employer's business includes my having to undergo a credit check. When I act as the employer's representative I have to undergo credit checks. Unfortunately, because of issues related to my autism my credit rating is very low...

How can a relationship work between a guy who has no friends or social life at all and a girl who has lots of friends, does have a social life, and all. Are you supposed to make her be a no social life freak like you or let her get you on the right path. It's not about having friends, it's all abou...

And then you get to be 45 and whatever goodlooks you once had that got you by aren't enough anymore, you actually have to have a personality to interest other people with. Middle age hits everybody, even those who once got by on other people's high estimation of their looks.

So would you agree that the stigma associated with a woman being agressive has influenced the feminine pshyce such that even the lustful emotion a woman feels has to be framed in the context of socially acceptable "love?" Also is it not important to a woman to feel validated sexually by a male she ...

Attractive people, men or women, really want to be seen for the people they are rather than superficial qualities. Beautiful people want to be seen for who they are and communicated with on that level as much as those considered less attractive. It is difficult to see inside and truly communicate w...

Well sorry to ruin your expectations but it's likely (other than postural habits that might need ... other abdominal muscles that are more related to breathing) that getting bigger abs would thicken your stomach over all , doing stuff with the muscles underneath doesn't seem ( scientifically speaki...

The products she promotes through her physical appearance are probably things that will appear in women's magazines like photos of her wearing mascara that has been rubbed into little bunnies eyes during the safety testing phase of the product. I don't see her as a representative of diversity. I wis...
