People are often kind of like onions; there's many different layers and subtleties to them, and everyone has their own specific code. However, here's a few basic ones I've learned; Good eye contact is usually a start, not staring, but looking as if you're engaged and interested. Not using 'avoidance...

Hi there, Basically, I was going to a party yesterday evening, and thought I'd give my clothes a quick iron before going out. I had like half an hour to go, so I was in a rush, and basically once I'd finished with the iron I didn't think to turn it off, and went outside. I realise that this is massi...

I think mixed blessings, really. Since I've learned to control it, it's been one of the best things for me. However, it makes it very awkward to talk to people/when I'm clumsy it has negative consequences :S

Thanks everyone for the responses! Lazyman, you were right on most accounts, apart from my lack of empathy, I suppose. I'm very extroverted, so if I don't see people I get quite depressed, but at the same time I can't handle invasions of personal space and find it hard to communicate what I'm feelin...

I had a lot of problems with trust issues after my behaviour was consistently used as a prop or running gag by my 'friends', workmates, vindictive teachers, and generally anyone who got frustrated by me being clumsy. I even did the worst thing I could possibly do and act it up a bit to get laughs an...

Tidying my room, general maintenance, and playing Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on my playstation. No idea why on that last one, but every little helps, right? :P

Doesn't sound out of the ordinary at all. I have a friend who loves eating spicy, exotic food because he claims he can 'taste' them better. Myself, I'm a big fan of anything with cheese or whatever on it. Everyone's Asperger's is different, so don't take my word for it, but from what I can tell it's...

Hi there, I've officially moved out of home, and have been living at university in Norwich for the last year. Since then, my confidence and social abilities/esteem issues have greatly been resolved, I've become incredibly socially active, and all in all am loving the new, improved me. However, yeste...

The trickiest part of these things is knowing where to begin, so I think an introduction is in order. I'm a young adult male, currently studying at University, and I have recently been confirmed by a doctor that I am on the AS Spectrum/have Aspergers. I realise this is not an official diagnosis, but...
