I'll binge on albums or movies in the same way. Back at Christmas I discovered Boney-M song Rasputin, and I got hooked on that for about 2 months. I'm over it now, but it's a fantastically addictive song.

It sounds like a odd way of saying "not likely". Or perhaps "I'm involved with another guy, but it's not working out with him, so I don't know". If she can't say more clearly what the situation is, you're heading for more hurt between the pair of you. Confusion is the hardest thi...

It's problematic for everyone I think. Not just Aspies. The girls themselves know they keep changing their minds, but they don't know why they do it. It drives them nuts as well. Relationships are hard. Everyone will tell you that. Trust that it is true. Which means, if you do want to get involved i...

I always get caught out with the question "Where do you work?"

I always get offended when people ask me where I work. It feels very private to me, and I don't want to go telling everybody I've just met where I work.

on the Cambridge Test. Your accuracy in the experiment was: 79% I think the only reason this is, is because I'm currently learning portraiture (oil paintings). So I recognized the eyes and the eyebrows. I've got a book at home hear called Understanding Emotions. I read the book cover to cover and di...

flywithme. My advice is naturally suspect; I don't know you or your friend. And for that matter, I've never had a successful relationship, ever. Sooooo. You are young, believe it or not, there is plenty of life left for you. Slow down girl. Life isn't over when you hit 30. Become friends first, give...

To SocOfAutism I think I would count myself as one of your "Invisible Autistics". To get a positive diagnosis means that you pass a 60% threshold of associated disorders. This means that they are Autistic / Aspersions. I think you're confusing yourself about other people's difficulties, or...

...So hes using the " religious liberty " excuse , huh ? Yeah, the best current excuse to treat people you hate like sh*t. He doesn't even hate the woman, he hates Bernie. He's very messed up. I agree, he's acting nothing like Jesus said we should act. Love they neighbor, and do good to t...

It's not really High functioning Autistic, that is a specific category within classic autism. We are ASD, Autism Spectrum Disorder. You can also get high functioning within ASD too. High functioning refers specifically to Executive Function. The frontal lobe. If that is untouched by autism, the pers...

I really did used to think they meant smile and be f*****g constantly happy.... Oh, now I find this out. Thank God it only took 50 years. I have been using that fake smile for years now, it seems to work, but then I'm seriously face blind, so wouldn't notice even if they were angry at me. The only ...

I've never found a good online resource. Books are good to understand the condition, but they won't help much with those questions you pose. So, I could only suggest an autistic/Asperger group in your area. If this option is available, it'd be a lot cheaper and you get to meet other people in a simi...

I was 46 when I discovered Asperger's, and was diagnosed soon after. Over the next two years, I bought every book I could find on the web. I found Olga Bogdashina to be the best author for anything Aspergers or Autistic. I can't praise her books enough.

You are hurting yourself and your wife. Is that fair, it is not. You were in love once, and what a fantastic feeling that is. But now those feeling have changed, and worse, you're actively hating her. That is soul destroying, for you and the woman you loved. It's not fair, and it's not right. I find...

I researched sex clubs in my area, and yea, you must have a female partner before you join up. You are not allowed to go there single (except females, they can). I've been wanting to go to the local topless bar for years, but just haven't gained the courage to do so yet. I'd probably be bored silly ...

I agree with ASDmomyASDkid, magical thinking. I did a lot of that myself when I was young, well, up till about about 40 years of age when i finally realized the world just didn't care what I thought, or if I thought. (by world I mean the outside barionic universe). Aspies are very good at pattern ma...
