You have a long history of saying you want a girlfriend. But you never told us why specifically you want a girlfriend. What's your end goal? Is it wanting to feel loved, without really caring by whom? Is it for sex and other physical intimacies? (kissing, fondling, etc.) Is it to have a guaranteed d...

Just a side thought ... is it really that bad if you change your mind about wanting a romantic relationship? I'm not giving advice on it or looking at her level of potential interest because it was pretty clear where your head was at. But ... Well, if you want to talk on a different potential angle...

Two hotel rooms would make it more obvious, if you can afford that. Two rooms? Nah! With the Covid scamdemic finally ending and people traveling again, hotel prices are gonna be through the roof. My job pays very well, but still, why waste money? Besides, we're both vaccinated. ;) I'd rather save t...

Totally random question here, but is prostitution allowed during lockdowns? Are sex workers considered an essential service? I hadn't thought of that angle before. Where I am people can't even see their partners, let alone touch. Legal? Nope! Essential? Well... :wink: Escorts in my city resumed wor...

I made a new friend in January this year. I didn't think much of it; I kind of took it for granted, to be honest. What made her special was her politics: a hard-right conservative, like me. (By contrast, the friend I met in 2016 is liberal.) I first met her in person at a picnic with my political gr...

How do you feel about a female friend buying you lunch? I'd feel grateful, and make sure to thank her at the end. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Unless I picked up on specific behaviors, like flirting, I'd attribute it to her being generous and leave it at that. I'd also feel slightly obligated...

But haven't your parents violated your trust over and over again? Shouldnt they be out of your life forever? You seem glad that you have finally earned their respect, and that they like you now. That is strange to me. I trusted my parents for a long time, but when I finally realized the degree to w...

Gosh that is quite horrible. Sounds like your parents hated you. I have a question. Well, 4. How has this impacted you? Are you glad that it taught you a skill of spotting bad intentions from a mile away? Or perhaps this has made you into an extremely distrustful person and now this is bad for your...

The "who's more naive?" thing seems to change from one to the other often on WP. I've seen threads saying that Aspie children don't believe in Santa because we're "too clever" for that, but I've also seen threads saying that NT children are the ones that don't believe in Santa b...

It's common knowledge that aspies, especially in younger years, are trusting and naive. But when I was a kid and even more so now, I can spot a lie and people's ulterior motives from a mile away. I don't know how and why, but I could do it. Somehow, my aspie mind always put two and two together, and...

Hydrochloroquin was a highly respected, safe, and long used treatment that was BANNED from many places only a few months to WEEKS before "covid" was made public. Ivermectin was treated the SAME WAY! India is using them now in various provinces, and the cases are dropping like flies! Peopl...

The Medieval bubonic plague was a pandemic. The 1918 Spanish Flu was a pandemic. The 1950's polio was a pandemic. The 1980's HIV was a pandemic. The 2003 SARS was a pandemic. The 2014 Ebola was a pandemic. The 2020 Election Infection wasn't a "pandemic"; it was a SCAMdemic, with an end goa...

Well it sounds to me that they were just being vindictive, or passive-aggressive, based on past acrimony towards your past behaviours that put people off. I don't think it was b/c you didn't communicate your needs clearly (or properly). I mean, as long as you didn't shout, curse, or verbally put do...

Another fallacy here is that NT kids wishes and interests are considered more "normal" and accepted, whereas our wishes and interests may be regarded as inappropriate, which can be a subjective construct. And in certain cases like my little anecdote, our wishes and interests can be repres...

I am sure if I had go that sort of "therapy" as a child I would not be living to tell about it today. I could not have taken that sort of treatment, since that was exactly what surrounded me everywhere in my life anyways. You are a survivor! I think now I am glad I did not get therapy whe...

Do you think it worked? Do you think your behavior changed in a way that allowed you to blend in with NTs better? Sort of. The bastardized ABA taught me the importance of telling people what they want to hear, as well as the importance of not telling people the wrong things. After all, it's what I ...
