People are annoying. So girlfriends (and boyfriends) will be, at least sometimes, annoying.

My girlfriend is generally wonderful but nonetheless sometimes annoying.

In different situations, I've been told I come across as weird, rude, intense, intimidating, annoying, insensitive, too sensitive, arrogant...but I don't see myself as any of these things--except maybe weird.

No one frowns on me having sex, but that's probably because they don't see me doing it.

My long-term memory is extraordinarily, but my short-term memory is terrible. I can remember a whole page from a book I read 40 years ago, but I'll lose something that was in my hand just a minute ago.

Subtract one word, and I fully support the kid. But I can understand how being really exasperated can provoke that language.

I hope you can find some help and also get away. I grew up in a very backwards and intolerant town, and my life improved enormously after I escaped to a more diverse and tolerant place.

So much hardship here. It's difficult to read. I'm relatively fortunate, but still struggling. I've had 3 clear cases of burnout, the first when I was 12-13 and had no idea what was happening to me or even that I was autistic. The other 2 were 6 years ago and last year. After each of these, I never ...

I've been in non-exclusive "friends with benefits" relationships, and that was ok. But for anything more serious, monogamy is better for me. It's hard enough for me to deal with just one other person's thoughts and emotions. A polyamorous network is just too complicated for me to navigate.

Benjamin Franklin's reasons for preferring an older woman, from 1745: "1. Because as they have more Knowledge of the World and their Minds are better stor’d with Observations, their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreable. 2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they stud...

The US is not the world. It's still used in a lot of countries, but it's always a subcategory of autism.

It depends on the person. Not all autistic people are the same. I think I understand my son better because we're both AS, but we have a lot of friction because our autistic qualities often clash. My SO isn't autistic, but she's extremely eccentric in her own ways; I like that and think it brings us ...

Agree with both your points. But at the end of the day it boils down to this. If as young aspie male wants an NT girlfriend he must make an attempt to blend in. This is obvious. No. He doesn't have to blend in if he can manage to stand out in a positive way that at least some women like and appreci...

You're held to a higher standard if, like me, you can't competently initiate a conversation, much less a relationship. I've had plenty of relationships, but I've never initiated things myself. Fortunately, some women will do that for you. But, in order for them to take that step, you have to be in s...

99% of people drain me. A major reason why my partner is my partner is that she doesn't.

"Collectivist" is a perjorative term used by people who consider most forms of cooperation to be akin to slavery. You might as well go to Harlem saying that you want to meet "n****rs." "Collectivist" is not pejorative. And I live in a society that could be described as...
