Making friends on my floor wasn't hard, just had to hang out in the common area, and then I met people through them.

I've had a similar experience over the last year, but to a much more limited extent. But I was just able to drop back to a middle ground after starting college a month ago as there are zero people here that knew me before. But the summer really sucked as I felt the need for social interaction yet ha...

You just need to tell him you don't want to be friends, not really any other way if he can't figure it out on his own. I've seen this happen with a couple of NT friends, there was even one guy who I almost had to tell to f*** off but someone else did so first, yet she felt bad about it afterward. It...

The same thing always happens to me. I think part of it is that many people are used to me being the person putting the effort in and I suspect that many just have more/more interesting people than my self to talk to. However, I know for sure that sometimes that is not the case, the worst such momen...

Yeah, I have had this problem in high school. Not in college yet, but I've only been here for three weeks so far. I always have to ask a friend about assignments to make sure I'm doing what I'm supposed to.

I'm majoring in computer engineering, and will most likely add computer science as a dual major, but I'm not 100% sure of that yet.

Diagnosed with AS, but its really both reasons for me. Most people I just have no desire to talk to, but when I do want to talk I can't fit it into the conversation or can't come up with something worth saying (not to mention that starting a conversation is really difficult most of the time so I try...

I thought people thought I wasn't happy just because I don't smile much, but just last night someone who couldn't see me said I sounded unhappy, so today I've been not only working on smiling more but also trying to figure out how to sound happy.

I wasn't, I treated both genders equally, but then discovered that equal treatment is not the way you are 'supposed' to behave. Everyone is against sexism/racism/whatever but at the same time want to maintain a gender/racial identity and therefore be different, maybe it's not superiority in any way ...

Cosplay = costume role-play Based on what a couple of friends who cosplay have told me, they dress up as characters (anime characters in their case, usually at a con, but sometimes for other stuff, even a couple times wearing a partial costume at school) and try to stay in character but its mainly a...

Sometimes, but then I realize that in most situations it doesn't really matter what people think. I try to avoid being mean, but I guarantee that almost everybody sees me as being odd and I don't really care anymore. Unless its someone I need to impress, then I worry about seeming strange (mainly th...

I just say 'hello' every other time I see someone I know, every time for close friends or people I don't see often. A large problem I have is with trying to initiate conversation with someone I don't know, I've tried it a couple times in the last week but can't come up with anything to say even if t...
