I've never heard of ASD being considered a mental illness. That would mean the person was born Neurotypical and developed typically but then started to be autistic later in life. Some people use the terms Mental Disorder & Mental Illness interchangeably & thus they think of all mental disor...

Some interesting thoughts in this thread. I was asking out of curiosity. I've probably been hearing too many negative news stories about businesses getting in trouble because a higher-up had some kinda relationship with an employee or an employee was getting harassed by someone working there. Then I...

I heard of prepaid utilities before but I assumed it was something like paying your monthly cable bill at the end of the previous month or something like prepaid cellphone service that has limits on talk, text, & data. In the US we had coin operated TVs in the back booths in porno shops. But tha...

^^^I think being good looking can help guys in general including autistic ones get their feet in the door so to speak but there would likely have to be more in order too keep the relationship going. The other side of the coin is that bad looks could potentially be a major girl repellent & make i...

My opinion is that it’s treatable with medication and classified as mental illness so no, it’s not ND. Babies aren't born with BPD. Some people consider autism & ADHD mental illnesses. ADHD is treated by medication in some people. Some of us autistics find meds help with some of our autism symt...

People who are desperately trying to find a loophole in the rules against using a racial slur: "Can a white person say the N word but be considered a racist?" "Is it okay for people with albinism to use the N word?" "How can I say the N word without sounding racist?" W...

Bipolar Disorder is not a type of neurodiversity. Bipolar Disorder is a Personality disorder. I don't think anybody here mentioned Bipolar Disorder. BPD stands for Broderline Personality Disorder which does have some similarities with Bipolar Disorder but BPD has lots of differences as well. The di...

This reminds me of those old Donald Duck cartoons. Donald had a quarter on a string he would put in lots of various machines & pull it back out kinda like a yo-yo :wink: I don't think that ever worked in real-life thou :chin: https://64.media.tumblr.com/2d7181380eb96f42e69436c10301dac7/989caea85...

Sometimes this is a simply a case of being late to the party. A bit of us are unlucky & just so happen to make our post rite after the thread is done anyways & thus may seem like we killed it when in fact it's just bad timing.

A lot of this sounds to me like typical complaints from NT woman about guys in general. Lots of sitcoms & standup comics joke about guys not understanding women, guys taking what women say at face value, & guys wanting more space & time apart from their partners than their partners want.

I was gonna post this in the Things I Don't Get thread in Random section but as I was typing I thought it might be good to have a new thread here instead. I don't get how adults these days are expected to get in romantic relationships. Lots of adults are very hesitant to get involved with fellow wor...

I actually prefer to date people in my own league because I don't have high standards when it comes to dating I think people similar to me are potentially more relatable & accepting of me. However I was also very willing to date women who were in lower leagues than me for similar reasons & ...

I think lots of cases on this forum have to do with Projecting. The person feels bad for having those qualities & projects their negative opinion onto others who have similar qualities.

Venting at a potential girlfriend is not going to be attractive. My gf vents at me alot but I usually know it's not about me & I don't usually take it very personally. It can be frustrating sometimes but she's alot more understanding & supportive of me when I'm upset than anyone else has ev...

Lowering my standards is part of what ultimately worked for me. I also tried to figure out what my strengths were & the type of person who would be a great match for that. Then I tried to figure out how to meet & present myself to those types of women. I kinda thought of it as marketing &...

I don't get why sometimes when our thermostat is reading 75 I'm so cold that I'm shivering but other times it reads 74 & I'm so hot that I'm sweating :? :x
