1. I don't care for heavy drinkers either and they only care about people who drink and they are completely fake. 2. As for meeting people, maybe join a meetup for people who are die-hard economics fans like yourself but try more than one where drinking isn't a top priority 3. I like the idea of vol...

It sounds like it might be best for you to cut ties with her because 1. She is getting a divorce from her husband and wants to date too soon and all she is going to do is keep on trying to hook up with you for the wrong reasons and most likely use you because she is lonely. 2. There is a huge age di...

Hi: Yes, I have been known to be blunt with people and it really ticked other people off. Examples 1. If someone is a little too patronizing, I have said "I am not a child," but just about every person who gets that response says that I was rude. 2. I called out a former boss of mine on a ...

One of the things that abusive people will do is blame the victim in any way they can. Essentially they portray the victim as the one who is causing harm, as the one who is abusive, as the one who's behaviour needs to be corrected, etc. They will find some minor fault that the victim allegedly comm...

My job is fine and most of my colleagues treat me as an adult but most of them seem to have a big lack of interest in me even though they work with creating better inclusive practices. They don't know really accept me because they don't know how and it breaks my heart. Actually, my organization is b...

The realization came when I was 14 during the summer of 1996 when I realized that my childhood friend was developing into a teenager and became more interested in dating and other things that kids do. Then in 9th grade, I realized I felt different than my peers in special ed who were not on the spec...

Hi: Toxic people 1. They use lots of criticism and belittlement - "Only little kids do that"," You actually like that?" "You can't afford that." 2. They can manipulate you - If they put their victims down and the person tries to confront them, they act calm so they make...

Hi: I have people on my job who respond to me in a patronizing manner and I would like to learn how to set boundaries with these kinds of people in a positive way. One of the colleagues talked down to me as if I am 4 and it just pushes my buttons when people talk to me like that. Today she told me s...

I did firmly tell him "No" when he came up and asked me if I was willing to sell my place. He responded with "Well let me know when you are." I was pretty mad at that point. I contacted the president of the HOA about it and he wrote me a letter about "How rude I was to him&...

Hi:
I just got off the phone with her about that a few minutes ago and took a picture of the letter which I texted to her. It turns out that he serves on the HOA board and cannot be acting like that with owners of the property and even if we get into a conflict.

I thought it was strange that he would have to make a big deal about contacting the president of the HOA and for "Being rude to him." Luckily, I have a copy of the letter that I can send onto the property management about this because I am not comfortable with what he just did. I have live...

He knows I am autistic as I have told him that from day 1. I feel he is pushing the responsibility on me to make his friend happy by allowing him to underneath my upstairs neighbor.

A new neighbor moved upstairs back in February from another part of my city and we got to talking in which I told him I would like to move to another part of town that has more access to transit. At the moment, everything is way too expensive and I have a lot on my plate next to going through a lot....
