After reading The Fountainhead (loved it) I read the bit in the back of the book about Ayn and her Objectivism philosophy. The part I took issue with was that she believed perception is everything, but that the metaphysical does not exist. I'd love to be able to debate this particular point with her...

I've just been reading a lot of theory about comics lately :lol:

Of course we are.. the deeper level is where the colour is. You were just black & white about communicating things. ;)

Yeah, I like 'em all right. I don't work with them at the moment, but have had jobs where I've either worked directly or indirectly with various manufacturing/production machinery. Sometimes I thinking being a machinist or a millwright might be neat, or even an operator of a rather interesting machi...

Oh how I loved coffee... and sometimes tea. (Coffee and I had an open relationship, so it was kosher to dip a teabag every once in a while.) But we've broken up and gone our separate ways as of about 5-6months ago now. I haven't gone back for any makeup or ex-hate drinking sessions, either. I now on...

It seems a part of the problem for the OP is that they may feel anxiety in situations that an NT may be excited, so when people say things like "you must be excited about that," you're confused as to the emotion you're feeling because they're assuming you'd be excited when in reality you're feeling ...

Just hang out w/ her and be yourself. She's liked you for years as well, so obviously she likes & accepts you exactly how you are & there's no logical reason to all of the sudden be self conscious and nervous around her as if you have to now act in some new expected way. It's you as you've a...

Wow I really like the book/comics analogy :D Especially with how important body language is in comics. I liked that one a lot, too, but more for the living in colour & speaking in black and white bit.. as it just sort of speaks to the way we can perceive things differently, with sometimes enhan...

What happens when you don't consciously adapt? I'd be interested if my life would actually be worse if I acted more instinctively and impulsively. Well, for me personally it's been a great experience and I wish I had done it ages ago. Start looking at the people who don't conform, instead of those ...

I've chucked trying look normal and fit in. For one thing, all I was doing was focusing on the most stereotypically "normal" people and disregarding the ones who were different and unique. There are a lot of NT's with social lives who are pretty unusual in their behavior and different in appearance...

Thanks everyone for your advice. He's been sick so I haven't seen him in class. I texted him a get well message and told him I liked him. He hasn't responded in over 3 days :(. I don't think anything will come of this. Maybe he's still trying to figure out himself, but if anything at least I made a...

I know you're joking, but I'm going to guess it's more like a 30+ average in the private messages but some 0's as well. I almost sent it private because I thought I was the only one with "high" numbers and no long-term relationships. But I guess others are almost as bad. So whatever. :lol: @ "almos...

But then I remember why I'm working as hard as I am on myself, what my long term goals are, and who they're to serve besides myself.

And also that nothing worth doing is easy.

Then I'm able to persist & just keep moving forward! [/meet the robinsons]

I can manage day to day life just fine, just not financially right now, so I'm living with family for a bit while I get back on track and stack some coin.

I am well known for my verbosity :P Can you provide me with a brief hint of the kind of thing you have in mind... Dramatic change in diet from what you're probably used to.

I am pretty dull and I envy other aspies who did more than me. These things are nothing. Stop that. Comparing yourself to others is a sure fire way to depress yourself, as no matter how successful you are at something, there's always someone better & you can lose sight of the value of your own ...
