joking Sounds like you'll be a great husband. /joking That's a really sweet impulse--you want to protect and love a woman you fall in love with, not just use her for sex, and that's a good thing. Be careful that it doesn't turn into a smart, vain woman manipulating you, or into you feeling pressured...

@Iheartmegahitt I did say 'as a general rule' in my post meaning that not every person with autism is selfish. But more so than the general population of NT's judging by the diagnostic criteria. It's really simple. Also, I can pass comment on this issue because my Dad pretty much displays all the t...

Sometimes it is just a double standard. When my mom or dad gets angry, they scream and yell like everyone else. When I get angry and yell, I'm told it's wrong. There is no difference; what they don't like is that a 'special' person isn't always flowers and sunshine. They want us to be like in a movi...

Wow...sounds like my mom with dyscalculia. Never mind that I get straight As that tank to Cs and Ds when I do math; clearly I'm just 'not interested in the subject'. At least she figured out that I was AS and not a psychiatrist or doctor--this way she actually believes it.

Who has worked for all the things you have? Respect his decisions(to a point), right or wrong Um, no, the one who works for everything is my mom. I understand the philosophy behind that, but that's the same 'justification' my dad uses to treat me and the others like we don't deserve a say in anythi...

My dad is a royal pain in my posterior, and that's the politest thing I've ever wanted to say about him. But he's my dad, I live with him and my mom, so I try to offer to meet him halfway. Since he really considers chores important, I try to meet him halfway by talking about chores. I'll ask things ...

Call me crazy, but the music video to Fireflies pretty much was the indicator for me that he was. For me, the vid to Umbrella Beach. Who but an Aspie can know what it feels like to look at some random place in the background and realize, in your gut, that there lies a place of heavenly perfection t...

What you're feeling is called 'different symptoms'. :p Mine are really weird too--I fit none of the classic math-based stuff, and instead I'm an English\Sociology major. But if you like it here, stick around! As for what planet you're from, well, I like to pretend I'm from Daos, the warrior school-p...

I have no idea what that's like, but then again I'm fairly weird with emotion. Why don't you try talking to someone about it? A counselor, maybe? They could probably help.

And giant Internet hugs, it sounds like you need them. :)

Faceblindness? So that's what it's called! :) I was going crazy trying to figure out why I couldn't remember people when I bumped into them in places I didn't know! Drives me nuts...

Awesome comic. :)

'Please define the facial expression on this face.'

Depends. Does your list include 'taking a dump?'. And I'm seeing a lot of 'bored' faces...


Yeah, there's something wrong with that quiz, because I was just guessing half the time.

I went to the pool earlier. Normally when I'm at the pool I lose track of everything, even where I physically am, for the whole time I'm swimming. But this time my thirteen-year-old brother decided to be a jerk to my six-year-old sister, so I got stuck watching her. Now I'm a mess. I'm using just ab...

What everyone else said. :p No, more seriously, your brain WILL change as you grow. My own symptoms certainly changed over time. You might get better stamina around people, or an enhanced obsession. While the technical answer is 'no', you'll find a way to live your life and be happy. That's all you'...

I don't have a problem with it. If my mom had let someone intervene earlier, I'd have had a much happier life, and I probably wouldn't have the same issues with my dad (although I'd still have different ones). But yeah, I can see why it seems rude; most Aspies don't seem to have the sort of luck I h...
