I have it too! And I think I know exactly what you're talking about with that Depeche mode song. I get that feeling with a lot of songs, like after listening to Black Hole Sun or even anime songs like Again from Full Metal Alchemist. I also sort of see music in my head similar to the way it looks in...

I definitely feel like they can. All the time. Which is why I get so jittery when it comes to "professional" type settings, where I'm expected to act in a way that I normally don't (more smiley, speaking formally, trying to meet the expectations of customers or bosses). I'm pretty much putting on a ...

I've just had a look at it, and it does look promising. Thanks for recommending it for me.

If you're looking to make friends, and be on your own a lot less, there are essentially two things you would do well to consider. 1) Your social skills, and level of social attraction 2) Getting into situations whereby making friends comes more easily. Now regarding number 1) this may sound difficu...

You need friends, right? These days I feel like more of a burden to my family then as a member of it. I'm years past the age expected of me to move out on my own, but I lack the one thing that everyone else seemed to have when they moved out: FRIENDS. I have no idea how to make them. The entire comm...

I consider myself demisexual; in definition it's very similar in the case of not feeling sexual attraction to either gender, however...I do feel romantic attraction to both genders, and get "turned on" from time to time, lol.

I don't really have a problem making eye contact -- I think most people have beautiful eyes. If anything, I have the opposite problem to many: My eye-contact is too prolonged and I get semi-hypnotised. So I try to modulate it by looking away regularly, e.g., by looking up and to the left when takin...

Oh wow, I'm the complete opposite. I used to have the worst time with eye contact when it came to trying to listen to the other person. I would tell myself that I NEEDED to have good eye contact or they wouldn't like me, so I'd keep my eyes focused on theirs; but then I'd end up staring into them wi...

My situation exactly. It gets very uncomfortable too, because sometimes I try to force my posture to be correct and end up with an annoying throbbing tingle in my spine. I'm actually slouching now; my back was straightened earlier, but then my sides stared going numb. :/ liiife

Okay, I was about to rage before I read that the site was a parody. I've heard awful things from Christian extremists before, so I really could not tell whether it was trolling or truly insane ignorance. Phew...I'm so glad it's not real. If it really is a joke. God, it'd BETTER be a joke.

Maybe if you were to be proactive and to be the one reaching out, you might find that some people (the ones that matter) will respond to you. You know, we Aspies are actually very lovable and charming people. The key I've learned to maintaining a friendship is to communicate my feelings and to ask ...

A less noticeable approach is to center your focus between their eyes and then let your vision unfocus as they talk. That way you aren't picking up too much visual information while trying to listen, you can focus on the details better, and the person you're talking to thinks your eye contact is out...

I'm very serious about what I am going to say here, because I lived in isolation in the past, and while it feels "safe," it will eventually kill you. There is a verse in Scripture, near the beginning of Genesis, which says, "It is not good for man to be alone." Now, it's okay to have time alone. We...

I'm just curious, what was it in your friends that you could stand as opposed to other people? There were no conventional expectations involved when "socializing" with them. I never felt like I had to use set expressions to make them happy. And they were just as awkward in the social scene as I was...
