How can I act less indifferent and apathetic? I don't like being a debbie downer of any situation. The big question is why do you feel apathetic and are you feeling that whatever and whoever you talk to? You can force yourself to smile sometimes when you talk and that will often work just fine, but...

Friendships can be frustrating I agree, but luckily I have two very close friends. One is also an aspie, one is not. I do find that sometimes friendships are one-sided or manipulative or something, but because I can recognize that, I avoid those friendships. The only expectations I have when meetin...

I am on a mild dose of Reboxetine cause I suffer from extreme fatique and lethargic depression. This is a noadrenaline medication, not same as SNRI, it's only NRI. I have tried SSRI but got even more tired of it (and fat and also some breathing problems). The problem with Reboxetine is that I wake u...

Reciprocity, with no obligation. I thought my posts were thoughtful enough, even if they were not dissertations. I got a good sense of humor. But it seemed like you were discussing friendships seriously. Maybe I should have gotten your humor better, and maybe I should just lighten up :wink: you hav...

Thank you for these last thoughtful posts. I think many of you have good points.

As I see it it's important with reciprocity, if it's not there it doesn't matter how good friends u are

Maybe joking are rare in your friendships as well

A person should know that a friend should not deceive another friend, or talk bad about the friend, or do something to harm the friend. There shouldn't have to be any "obligation." All this should be taken for granted. Ok let's leave the word "obligation" for a while and focus o...

I have some close friendships where there are NO expectations. If you want to hang out, fine. If you're too busy, fine as well. People do things because they WANT to do them. Not because they feel OBLIGATED to do them. If a friend of mine is in a jam, I try to do the best I can for them. I'm not ob...

It's preposterous to suppose otherwise.


I meant it's impossible to have zero expectations in friendships because it is build on trust (hopefully)

Are the key to good friendships low expectations? Yes. Expect the worst from people and you will never be disappointed again. Once I figured that out, my whole attitude about how myself and others took a 180° turn for the better. People are selfish, mean, ignorant, impatient, cruel, arrogant, stupi...

If you really expect nothing....you often get nothing because you don't wish for it, and you give nothing because you think no one will return anything.

So there it is, just nothing at all

The key to a good friendship is NO expectations. My friend is not EXPECTED to do anything for me. People do things because they want to do them. People help you because they want to help you. No obligation. My friendships are always on a non-obligatory basis. If I feel like lending you a couple of ...

I can relate well to your story. I don´t know you but I can imagen that you are a friendly person and that friendliness is showing from long distance. People see directly that you are nice and maybe timid. Maybe you also are a too good of a listener and that´s a dead give away of being in these situ...
