 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Are autistic people more immature

I think that the immature/childlike stereotype is based on our body movements, blunt speech and logical thought processes. Young children are still learning how to use their bodies and tend to have awkward gates and jerky mannerisms. They also are very direct and to the point when speeking and tend ...

We used to be neighbors. We actually didn't date at the time, but re-connected a couple of years later and hit it off.

Based on the aspies/auties whom I know in person, the ratio appears to be around 2:1, but my sample size is fairly small (n = approx. 30).

We still love each other very much, and we do often have trouble communicating verbally, but somehow non-verbabally we share a connection that I've never come close to forming with anyone else. Heck, I can barely tell when other people are happy / sad / mad, but my wife and I know exactly what each...

Women in my area seem to be very attracted to spectrum-ish men. Perhaps it is the culture here (lots of artists).

You do look a tad like Roger Waters, although you are better looking than he is/was. I would say that some sort of longish hair is a good idea for you. In my experience, long hair goes well with thin faces, and only adds to the mysterious aspie thing. In my experience, people actually find this to b...

I know that the first time that I drew someone from the front was in the final weeks of third grade when the art teacher made me. You have piqued my interest a bit... perhaps it is an aversion to faces or an attempt to de-emphasize the face, or perhaps drawing someone from the side emphasizes the ac...

Unequivocally Yes. I am starting to realize that I am naturally wired to be drawn to women who are on (or just off) the spectrum. I do not believe that this is a conscious decision, as it happens even when I am initially unaware of the other's spectrum traits. Also, I tend to find almost everything ...

I don't make a great deal of money, but I am a champion of austere modes of living and thus keep my overhead very low, so I am able to live comfortably. I would much rather work a job that I enjoyed than cynically make superfluous sums of money.

I would say that it depends on the circumstances. In school, I cought a great deal of flack and dealing with peers/the system was very painful. It was less pervasive, but ever present in College. As an adult, I find that myself and most other Aspies whom I know are actually seen as very charasmatic/...
