Hope it's the right place.] I'm pretty inexperienced with relationship stuff. I've had a few boyfriends but I never did anything past making ...

I'm pretty inexperienced with relationship stuff. I've had a few boyfriends but I never did anything past making out with any of them. (Yes, I'm a teenager). I've been diagnosed with AS since I was a kid, and although I've had problems with certain textures (velvet, corduroy, fleece, and similar), s...

I read this quote today, from John Elder Robinson, in the book Far from the Tree by Andrew Solomon: Some of my [circuit] designs were true masterpieces of economy and functionality. Many people told me they were expressions of creative genius. And today I can't understand them at all. This sounds ex...

I have this weird problem where I'll really like someone and I'll try really hard to become good friends with them in order to get them to like me. Then, for some reason, if I find out they do like me, I lose interest. But I don't want to ruin the friendship or relationship, so I try to convince mys...

I wouldn't think so. I think it has more to do with what cavernio said about realizing you're not the smartest person around, if it's anything social. But I don't think it's necessarily either of those: I think it's mostly to do with how much less free time I had once I started high school (getting ...

My 'hypochondriosis' is the only reason I found out I had celiac disease. Secondly, my ill-health has disabled and tortured me ever since I left highschool.


Sorry I made that assumption, what a silly mistake--I'm sorry you have Celiac's; a good friend of mine has it. I'm glad you found out :)

Yeah, I'm not really going to do anything until I get the blood tests. You sound almost as hypochondriac as I am, hehehehe (forgive me if I make a mistaken impression)

That's funny, I've actually suspected I had an iron deficiency for a long time. I don't eat a lot of meat at all, because I try to be sort of vegetarian, and for years I was eating meat but was avoiding red meat altogether (it was a weird taste preference). I went to see the doctor a few weeks ago a...

Losing interest in activities you once enjoyed can be a sign of depression. It's not necessarily typical "teen angst". Oh, yeah, that's the other thing I forgot to mention--I'm definitely not depressed. I've been clinically depressed at least once in my life, possibly twice (the second ti...

Over the past few years I've pretty much stopped doing any sort of hobbies. I just sort of stare at the wall, mindlessly text my friends or scroll through Facebook every day. I'm afraid it's ruined me. This went on for two years, from when I was 14 to when I was 16. And I'm afraid that's a very cruc...

Hello all, I've heard several people on this website talk about thinking in pictures (as opposed to words). In addition, its supposed to be more common among autistic people. I am capable of visualizing fairly well but I think primarily in words. So I'm posting a few questions here, because I'm curi...

I wouldn't be so sure about that. You've just got to find the right people. Some NTs (even a few aspies) are intolerant of a even a little difference. They are generally very boring people, and not worth making friends with. However, there are others who make friends with all kinds of different peop...

Speaking from personal experience, I really think that talking to people in person is very important. People do sometimes act more honest online, but there's so much that you miss out on--the tone of their voice, the way they look, and general spontaneity... being physically present can be a lot mor...

It used to be that I only had one interest at a time. When I was in elementary school, it was animals, and in middle school it was physics and cosmology. But towards the end of middle school I started losing interest in that, and now I have nothing (I'm a high school freshman). I sort of bounce arou...

I might be a bit of a hypocrite to say this but it's dangerous to want everything out of one relationship. One person shouldn't accommodate all needs of the other, it's not fair to expect everything of onever person. Why? Don't you think it depends on what a person wants, and how much of it? Well, ...
