My sympathies, pal. I myself have never had any real romance in my life. However, when I was in school, I really wasn't ready for it. I haven't given up on the idea of it, but if it doesn't happen, then so be it. ZakFiend has a good point. If you still want to try, then do what I'm going to do: Find...

Aye, I can relate to that. I'm a visual learner and there's nothing visual about talking on the phone. I don't use the phone if I don't have to. I can't always hear what the person on the other side is saying and vice versa. Then I would have to repeat myself and that I REALLY hate.

Hello, everybody! Kyle "The Ghost" here! I want to ask everyone here how they feel about cliffhangers. They are the endings in movies, books, and TV series that leave you hanging and you have to come back just so you can know how it ends. Like those multi-part episodes on the old 1960s Batman series...

Indeed. The same seems to go for all the other characters. Is this intentional, or one of those things they don't expect you to think about?

I chose mine because it is a ghost. I chose a ghost because my nickname is "The Ghost". I call myself Kyle "The Ghost" because I feel like I'm trapped in a world that's got so many problems that I don't feel like I belong in it. I do not understand this social world. Also, I've always liked ghosts i...

I never did like talking on the phone. I'm a visual learner and there's nothing visual about a phone. I don't talk on the phone if I don't have to. My dad is the same way and because of that, my mom is stuck with answering ALL the calls. You see people all over the place, and even while driving, tal...

I would chose to have powers that are similar to that of a ghost. You know, invisibility, passing through solid objects, and whatever else a ghost can do. Hey, I'm not Kyle "The Ghost" for nothing!

"You don't know what you got until its gone." Aye, that be too true. People have a tendency to take people and things alike for granted, probably thinking nothing will ever happen to them. It isn't until after you lose them, you realize how that person or object affects you and your life. Then you w...

Hello, everybody! Kyle "The Ghost" here. I am one who just HATES having his picture taken. I used to like it, but that disappeared around the time I turned 8. Now I avoid it whenever possible. I don't quite know the reason why, though. One possible explanation is that I'm afraid of the possibility o...

I'm proud to be who I am: a high-functioning autistic. Why? for one thing, NTs don't have a powerful photographic memory like I do. There are some drawbacks to be sure. The whole socializing thing for one. Another would be face blindness, but that doesn't become a problem if I see someone enough tim...

21 AND never had a girlfriend before? You are not alone. I know where you're coming from. In High School, the girls seemed to only want me as a friend. I didn't go to the prom or any of the school dances. Nobody asked me and I didn't ask anyone. It's just as well, I don't know how to dance and I was...

I have high-functioning autism. The social part is the hardest for me. I have trouble reading people and understanding what they mean sometimes. I spent so much of my pre-adult life trying to fit in with people and win them over. Then one day in 2007, I decided to just forget about it and just accep...

I read the book and I, for one, think it is a positive way to lead your life. I myself totally got into it, because it kind of gives me the feeling that the entire universe is at my command. You get out of it what you put into it. Thanks to The Secret, I feel a lot better about myself.

I hate holding still. I am very active and because of that, I pretty much have to move some part of my body at all times. The only exceptions would be if I am sleeping, worn out, or just plain exhausted.

Anybody else feel that way?
