If you aren't good at texting, then tell them that you don't like doing it. Tell them that you want to call or be called if there is something that is that important to say. That's what I'd do if I had that problem. This^^^^^ I think we are too dependent on virtual communication. The only way to tr...

If you can make people feel good about themselves, give them validation and can add value to their lives, they will make room for you as a friend. You just need to learn to be socially attractive Yes, see...this. I'm tired of trying to make them feel good about themselves, giving them validation. T...

Great post. I agree with you on all the dating points. I've been observing for the last year, and basically come to the same conclusions. Unfortunately, it's led to more apathy about being around people, and I was already anti social enough. I don't agree with your self assessment about your empathy...

This is a subject I've been thinking about a lot here, lately. I wasn't sure if it was just me or not, because my situation is an odd one. I didn't have close friends as a kid, because I lived in a fairly isolated environment, only seeing them at school or once a week at Girl Scouts. It improved sli...

You: "How are you today?" Majority of NT humans: "I'm good. *Insert complaints about all life's problems*" You: "I know how you feel... I've had this, this ,this and this happened to me today..." NT human: "Oh, okay. Now, onto more about my life and why it's so horrible. I could actually care less ...

I've had Facebook since almost the beginning, but I never really used it until I moved back to my hometown just over a year ago. I got reacquainted with two old friends, and they introduced me to new people in their circle, so I entered by default. Most of them are very involved in the music scene, ...

Aah, a ritualistic thingy. A metaphor, yes? Black magic, voodoo et al. Anyway, hope all's well and I'm sure Mindsigh will actually know what it's about. Well, not black magic. Just not the sort that gets practiced in the U.S. all that often (outside of specific geographic areas). Vodoun is Haitian,...

The biggest drawbacks I've had from stopping cold turkey is the headaches. I don't get migraines, but I'm told this is what they are like (my mother and daughter both get them). My vision is blurry, I get sick to my stomach; I'm already light sensitive and this makes it worse. After a few days, it w...

This ^. I turned 36 in Aug, and I had a student in my office an hour ago that thought I was 22.

Yes, but it's not just us that see them that way. I've encountered everything from people being astounded to being hostile about my age, since moving back to Texas (where I see you're from sbarne3). I attribute at least part of it, to the bad lifestyle habits. The women my age (30-45), are trying to...

Yes, I know exactly what you mean, as those two situations are the way I tend to operate as well. Uncaring at its most basic level, not going out of my way to be mean, just not caring. And secondarily, if I don't encounter you on a daily basis, I don't really wonder or worry about you. It's almost a...

Never. I have never felt it in my life. I honestly believe I am incapable of it. That is absolutely me. I thought I was the only one who saw the inherent lack of logic in it... This. When I was fourteen, my mom took me to a psychiatrist, because she thought I had anger management issues coming from...

Based on conversations I've had with NT friends that went on online dating sites, the NT women tend to answer messages that don't only speak to how they look. They want to see some indication that the guy is aware they have interests listed, and that they have brains. It didn't always matter what th...

I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue, and how to address it among my friends, without sounding like an ice queen. Basically, my level of attachment is directly proportional to the other person's ability to keep my interest on a mental level. If they can't keep up some measure of intellectual ...

I don't know. It almost sounds like there needs to be some reprogramming all around... Why is the sitter asking about snacks, healthy or otherwise, every 15 seconds? As shown by your daughter, a 2 year old probably doesn't know the exact answer to that question, and the sitter should be maintaining ...
