friends are also enemies. keep that in mind. and i don't mean it cynically. (no love without hate, etc.). patience? that being said, i'm sorry you've had such a rough go of things so far -- some people just get dealt a sh***y hand, but that doesn't mean it won't evolve (though probably slowly and pa...

I read the whole thing. Very well-written, open (assuming you're being honest with yourself about yourself), descriptive of a somewhat odd yet intriguing person who doesn't want to be creepy but maybe comes off that way. Can't comment about any sort of diagnosis (not sure I believe in that stuff) bu...

I can relate. I don't have AS, but it took me until my mid-20s to finally pursue my lifelong passion for music (or, at least, let anyone else in on it), I think because I knew that some people fancy themselves good singers or whatever who are clearly tone-deaf to others around them and I worried tha...

consider not taking the trip. it sounds like you feel stressed out about it, and that time is supposed to be your VACATION. maybe try relaxing at home instead during that time.

hope you encounter something that knocks your perspective onto a different path sometime soon.

This sounds like a textbook example of compromise in a relationship. He makes an earnest effort to give you a heads-up about his actions, you make an earnest effort to accept his spontaneity to the best of your ability. This is definitely a problem that can get better if both parties are willing to ...

i consider awkwardness as more of a situation that exists between people. i "have awkward interactions" with people, which i don't think is bad, by the way. awkward feels like you're trying to confront or be open to something that's difficult or new. embrace awkward, i think.

i think i've sort of become known as the person who doesn't get the joke half the time in most social situations. i'm comfortable with that. we end the moment by laughing at/with me.

If you are not interested in what they are saying, give a little nod and dip out of the vicinity. It's sort of a futile question to ask if it's offensive. . . if it feels offensive to you, then I guess it's offensive to you. YOU have control over whether or not to stay in that physical space. If you...

my approach: get used to the fact that you will feel awkward. be endearingly and unapologetically so.
