RPG, action-adventure, the occasional RTS (I'm terrible at them, though). Don't usually like FPSs unless I get to shoot zombies.

I love retro games. My favorite system is the NES, but I also like the SNES and Sega Genesis (favorite games include Zelda, Bubble Bobble, Ninja Crusaders, Dr. Mario). Collecting them is something of a hobby of mine. It's surprisingly difficult finding people who enjoy them, though, and they are oft...

I also hate those people who say your name several times in a conversation. Apparently that is a trick salesmen, HR people, therapists and such are taught to connect more to the person they're talking to. Unless I like the person I feel somewhat violated by them using my name, same as with unwanted...

I wonder this myself (from the opposite perspective of assuming the father is NT). But I worry that it's a double-edged sword: if the kid had autistic traits, I would feel guilty. If it was an NT, I wouldn't be able to relate to it, and who wants a child they can't relate to?

This is very interesting. I wasn't aware that it's an aspie thing. I have always had trouble calling people by name. I'm terrible at remembering names, as many have mentioned before me, but even when I know the person's name, I hate to say it. It feels intimate and somehow threatening to do so. Ever...

The yellow ones.

There are yellow kiwis? 8O I am intrigued.

I am currently consuming wine and cheese, which is an indulgence rather than a stereotype in these parts.

I start off by getting twitchy, which turns into stimming (which I hope still just looks like "twitchy," but I certainly can't judge). If the over-stimulation continues for more than a few moments, the twitching/stimming stops and is replaced by a sort of derealization. Like jec6613, I become essent...

I'm afraid I don't have any advice to give you, so maybe I'm not very helpful in that regard. But I thought I would post just to say that you're not alone in this area. While I've never hit on a gay guy, I have been told by my friends that I have no "gaydar"--to the point where, apparently, I am hil...

I have been occasionally reading this forum for a couple of years now, but have not participated. You all proved immensely helpful when I was first learning what it meant to be a woman with Asperger's, and I thank you all for that. However, despite the initial relief that came with diagnosis, I have...
