Then she heads home doing nothing but responding to the check-in text, then posts on social media about random s**t all week while not saying a word to me, then promptly saw some other guy I assume since she informs me this morning she's chosen someone else to be her "bf here" That sucks....

I feel for you. I wish I had a magic answer, but as you know this world is not fair. The good news though is that you come across as articulate and not overly sorry for yourself - you simply state the facts objectively and fairly. Such self knowledge is admirable, and is a very good sign for the fut...

"this is not what I signed up for". This sounds very familiar. WARNING: what follows is only my experience. Other people have different experiences!! ! I was diagnosed around 40. At around the same time I left my church. It was the kind of church that is almost a cult - everything in your...

I agree that just being there for him is by far the best solution. However, I live hundreds of miles away, and like many people on the spectrum he is not comfortable on the phone. And he is not someone who opens up easily. I have known him all his life (naturally) and last week was the first time we...

Thanks. I feel terrible even thinking of discussing this with him. But since there are no children, and the wife is so unhappy as well, it just seems so obvious. Of course,the down side is that I live a long way from him and any conversation will take at least an hour before it's comfortable to disc...

The only thing that works for me is to forget about doing stuff that makes me anxious (i.e. everything). I only ever do one thing, almost never go outside, and it always works (or always has): I read Dale Carnegie's book "how to win friends and influence people". it's cheap from any book s...

I love my brother and my heart aches for him, but I don't know what to do. As you can tell from my user name, I used to be very unhappy. (I can't change my user name unfortunately). My life now is a thousand times better. I got divorced, and now have somebody who loves me. My brother is in the same ...

Thanks for the reply. Comments like yours are why I always come back to this board and feel so at home. Most of what you said goes against conventional wisdom, yet that is exactly my experience. After two universities, running my own business and numerous jobs, I calculated that I would have been be...

Thanks. Plus, university wise, I am 47 and have already graduated from two universities, so it's not like I'm a teenager afraid of work! My fiancee is actually really good. She says she will support me whatever I do, but I don't want her to secretly think I am doing the wrong thing. With autism I ju...

Then why insist on continuing your dead end job? Is that your dream?


Sadly I have to eat. The job pays the bills, it is safe and I feel secure in it. I wish there was a better option but there isn't.

with some questions, people will see them and just say ummm why would you want to do that? And not bother even trying to answer. I think you are right. My problem is that I am not trying make the same kind of games as other people. To explain my goals would take several pages. Who would read it, mu...

I believe it. (Though it may be a western individualistic thing: perhaps Chinese people regret not doing more for the community?)

I tried to make video games for years, I could never make anything that people wanted to actually play It's quite rare to have any financial success with games. I agree. That's why I want to do this for the art, not the money. But I think I have a good chance of a hit, because what I am doing is co...

The number wish on peoples death beds as documented by a nurse who cares for the dying is: 1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearl...

You need about a million dollars to retire. That's the great thing about living in Scotland, with simple tastes. We have no healthcare costs, our hobbies are cheap,and we already have small pensions to top up the state pension. We should have a small mortgage paid off by then, and if I make any mon...

A problem I haven't seen discussed is that photo captchas are bad for autistic people. It's only a minor problem, and I don't have a better solution, but it's about being literal minded. Here are the examples I had today: Which photo contains grass? My answer: nearly all of them. That mountain almos...
