Thanks, I've thought about joining walking groups a few times but they're usually too hard to get to and I don't drive. I've also tried joining autism groups but they don't reply to me. I don't know why I've filled out the app form twice and my previous health worker contacted them as well but they ...

I don't believe that IQ tests are always a good indicator of how intelligent a person is as they don't take into account soft skills only hard skills like logic, arithmetic etc. Aspies in general I believe are probably above average at hard skills hence why we often perform very well on IQ tests.

I have two pet lizards which I enjoy but sometimes I wish I had a more social animal like a cat or a dog. I like rodents too except for they would probably chew all the cables and cause a fire. I once had mice who were pregnant. It was interesting watching the mother look after the little ones but o...

I went for "a few drinks" last night with local people I met on a social group. It was really awkward. People talking about work pretty much 90% of the time. I'm really depressed today. I never get anything out of socialising but I still yearn to have a connection with people. I don't real...

I'm meeting with people on meet up for the first time in about an hour's time. I feel really mentally drained and tired but I'm going to make an effort and go. Most of the groups I've looked at including this one I'm going to ask for a contribution from group members to help with the group running c...

I find it nearly impossible to know when someone's being genuine or not. People don't even have to do something obvious for it to upset me. I feel like I'm constantly being attacked and judged by people. Even when they do say or act harshly towards me, many times I will forget days or weeks after an...

I get why people did it back when they thought masturbation makes you blind but what's the point to it now? It seems like an extreme thing to do for the sake of cleanliness. I don't buy the whole religion thing either because Australia has nearly as high a rate and they're one of the most non-relig...

I can relate to this. I have a problem accepting help from people that have an obligation to such as a mental health worker or other police man as 9 times out of 10 they're false and doing their job. Although I have had one really nice CPN that was always there when I needed and he even helped decor...

I read that circumcision rates for males in the US is between 60-70%. I'm just wondering why is it so high when in Europe it's just 10-15%?

I try never allow myself to be taken in by clever marketing to the point of obsessing over finding reviews on everything before buying it. On a subconscious level though, I probably repeat buy the some products just because they're on TV. Also, the only time I ever bought an ipod it kept losing char...

I used to play chess on yahoo games but got fed up because I suck at it. It gets kind of boring when you're always losing all the time and taking ages to make a move. :roll:

I'm not influenced by them. I find most ads quite obnoxious. I don't get why so many people allow themselves to be taken in by them. It's quite pathetic really. Like why does every other mobile phone user have an iPhone? Are there no other brand phones they can buy? They're not even that powerful an...
