Maeryln138 said Why do you even want to date if those are your feelings? Because it seems that being part of a couple is a prerequisite to being part of any group and i dont want to be completely alone once my mom is also not there. atdevel said: 33 is definitely ready! In my country women over 30 a...

I am 33 year old female. I have never dated or been with anyone. Once in a while i have liked something about someone, but i dont feel motivated to do anything about it. In past i could not figure out if someone was interested in me. Now i notice if someone is noticing me sometimes but i freak out w...

Honestly all people have something they are withholding some information. Even if they are nicest to you. They do so as they think it is rude to be very blunt. So my take would be, if you like doing some things with some one continue doing it with that person; so continue spending time. If you no lo...

I also want to add that marriage is a two way street. If we assume that an aspie is unsympathetic and non communicative and ______ (put in whatever is common), my question is why did his or her partner decide to marry in the first place. I dont buy the logic that the marriage failed due to the AS. T...

I dont agree. I am not diagnosed but i have always had a tough time making friends. Though i think here you are not really talking about platonic relationship. Having said that i dont think it is easy for women too, atleast not enough to make a general statement. I can say for myself, that i am 33 a...

Hello. I am not sure what you want you are looking for, but when i feel like i want to interact with someone i generally just look at the different threads here and start replying. Why dont you just hang around and write to others on threads? It is more purposeful in that way. Or other thought would...

I actually prefer to reply immediately as otherwise i forget. So i personally would not take it as a bad thing to reply immediately. But then i have never really had any one reply to my emails immediately, other than my brother. So i dont know if anybody replies immediately. But no one has been as r...

Same here never got bullied in my school or college. At that time i was very passive, "mostly in my head" so i actually got protected by the guys in my class. I did not realised that but did not get bullied at all in school. Home was another thing all together. I actually did not get bullied by my b...

To Fiona_G Mine is actually just like you. I have always been a recluse and am so even now. I currently in a Uni so i meet people in class and since i live in halls, i meet people there. I dont really hang out with people i.e. meet just to talk. In the whole year i've done it 3 times. Even the 3 tim...

Very well-put.

But i guess me being interested in looking at guys would really help the situation. However i dont know how much it would help.

I am not sure what your question is. If it is does the same happen to others- then yes. I have the same issue. When i was working, i used to like to interact with people on an one on one basis but the moment they got together in a larger group like office parties, i just could not focus and got over...

Why is it so hard for them to understand that I'd rather be by myself than talk about something boring with someone who won't let me do the same? How do you handle people saying these things? I would tell them this exactly with examples. I did that with mine. My brother gets it as he knows what i l...
