The worse thing is being so close to normal functioning but not quite, like some invisible force always sabotages you, or drags you down. It's hard not t ascribe it to personal failing, especially when in other areas you can be quite brilliant. I understand a great many things as *concepts*, but I ...

Sorry no one got back to you. Yes. Often. I go back and forth between wondering why I'm alive and feeling a need to DO something to deserve to be alive. I'm not suicidal in the least, but I do hope that all of the pain that I've gone through in life is for some greater good that makes it worth it. L...

Height isn't important to me, but I do like to feel small with a guy. I'm 6'2, so it's hard to find someone who is taller than I am. I'm also skinny, and I like bigger guys. Burly, thick-set, well-muscled, and older. I'm definitely into 'daddies'! I'm especially into daddies who treat me like a litt...

Only you can decide for yourself what is the right thing to do, but I think you need to tell all of this to your boyfriend. Especially the part that you would never act on these feelings without his permission. But, look, a relationship doesn't have to fit any standard mold. It should fit for you an...

Many times in a local park that isn't very busy. Either in my car or along the stream that runs through the area. It isn't all that risky, though, since men sometimes gather there for sexual encounters and sometimes people use it to do drugs. Usually not both at the same time. I was usually alone th...

I got 26. I didn’t agree with any of the choices for a number of them. I got 27 and I felt the same way you did. For nearly all of the questions, the eyes didn't look like any of the choices. I also took longer than the test said it should take because I deliberated on each one. If it was timed, I ...

I understand what you mean by all of this. I have a similar work environment, where my bosses know I am autistic but none of my coworkers do (actually, one does. I don't know who she may have told). My autism does not interfere with my work at all, but it does cause similar social problems like your...

I've been essentially married (everything but the legal recognition) for almost 14 years. We've been legally married for a little over one year. I'm very happy in my marriage, but I will admit that we are not a normal couple. 1. we're both guys (we're gay). 2. my husband is, like me, very practical ...

Words My body - I am forever calorie counting and always worry I will pile on the pounds Me too, for both. I am also continually evaluating/reevaluating my nutritional needs, macronutrients, water intake, heart rate, etc. I have 6 health-related apps on my phone that I use. I also have loved words,...

... my psychologist said I'm just imagining it and that it isn't possible that people could think someone was flirting with them just because of staring. No, your psychologist is wrong. It can and does happen. Often. I've had people ask me out on dates this way, just from their misinterpretation of...

I tend to stare, which makes people think I'm interested in them. I've accidentally attracted both men and women this way. What I've found is that people usually get this idea if they catch me looking at them or in their general direction more than once. It is frustrating because if I look away afte...

In my experience, telling someone about your diagnosis is tricky. Sometimes it can be good and sometimes it can be bad, and I don't seem to be able to accurately predict someone's reaction to that information. People who I thought would react badly have not, and people who I thought would react well...

Yes, I can relate to this very well. I get 'crushes' on people, one person at a time, and I find myself gathering as much information about them as possible. Then, rather quickly, the obsession ends and I wonder why I ever thought that person was interesting. I've done this about customers when I wo...

What's interesting about this video is how she describes multiple photos of herself as a young child looking miserable or angry in different ways, and that is exactly my situation. Nearly all of the photos of me between, say, 1 year old and 5 years old are me looking miserable. And even after age 5,...

It sounds like something you did or that the school did may have resolved her issue, at least temporarily. Is it possible to identify what changed between the last week where she didn't attend school regularly and the week where she was going more frequently? It might not be possible to detect; if i...

I would imagine that you are right; most women think tall stature is an attractive quality. However, I also think that it takes much more muscle for a tall person to look muscular than a short person. 30 pounds of muscle on a 6'4" frame is much more stretched out than the same mass on a 5'3&quo...
