Some years ago I always carried a Rubik's Cube around with me. Or several including larger cubes like the 5x5x5. Though at that time it was very popular in my school and many others did the same. I was more into it than most others though and I remember someone finding it weird I kept playing it alo...

I just go to the same place every time, and just say 'cut it shorter'.

Whenever it happens. If anybody judges, well screw them.

That being said, I wish I'd started earlier, not for the status but for the experience so I'd find things easier now.

Hi there, Sorry in advance if my post seems kind of disorganised, it's difficult to express my thoughts but I'll try. I've never had a girlfriend before and have wanted one for some time. One thing that some people say is that I don't ask anyone, but the thing is I haven't been interested in anyone ...

Carp, I should h ave just taken that free ticket and suffered the awful noise and dancing and not made myself a social outcast. I've learned that you're expected to do things you don't particularly enjoy to spend time with your friends. That is stupid. You could invite them to do something else if ...

Anyone I'm willing to hang out with. The closer ones, we can trust each other more and talk about more personal things.

I only tell my closest friends (who happen to be very understanding people). In most cases I find it's not necessary to tell.

I would say most take me seriously, I had a friend recently comment on how people were more willing to do so in the last few years compared to when I was younger. But a few people still don't really.

Actually there are many books and websites out there that give instructions. For example http://www.succeedsocially.com/ seems to be a good resource. The problem is just reading these isn't enough to really be good, you have to practice and not every situation can be explained in words. Also, most '...

I think take it slowly and just talk to her about more general things as you would with other people. AS can be a rather sensitive topic especially early on, if you can be closer friends it'll probably be easier for her to talk about it.

If I didn't like someone, I would just talk to them less/avoid them. No need to be direct about it. But if you really wanted to say that, you could instead say what specifically about them bothers you, which is better than simply 'I don't like you'. Though avoiding them should be enough.

I've met a lot of nice people in real life, who will pretty much understand anything and anyone. Perhaps I'm lucky but as a nice person myself, I tend to meet similar people. then, out of curiosity, why do you call yourself "wrongway"? I can't remember the reason, probably just something I happened...

Agree with the above. I suggest posting in the 'Getting to know each other' forum or in the 'Friendship boards' under 'Social skills and making friends' forum, and without the personal details. Then you can PM people and get to know them that way.
