My favorite weather is heat waves. :D I like it hot. I don't seem to sweat as much as other people do and I frequently sit in a stifling hot room in summer, without opening the window or anything. My dad is the same and rarely feel hot. I don't think he ever owned a pair of shorts.

Sorry if this is a noob question. :) I was just wondering when you intentionally try to make eye contacts do you get distracted immediately by what you see? I usually try to look at people's eyes, especially when talking to my children's teachers. However the moment I see their eyes I think "Ooh, pr...

I don't remember. I grew up in a place with no legal drinking age so I drank various stuff pretty early on. I especially liked drinking white wine when I was 16 - 18. Never been drunk, though.

I have a rocking chair but I don't use it. I had a back injury a few years ago and it's uncomfortable to use the rocking chair since then. My autistic son sits in it all the time to watch TV, though. I noticed he likes to sit in the rocking chair in his classroom, too. We have a swing on the balcony...

I voted for "fair driver", though I don't currently drive. I learned driving in one month, passed road test with flying colors, and according to everybody who sat in my car, my driving felt perfect. I always drove at exactly 1 mi below speed limit, had smooth turns and almost graceful movement, in t...

I don't drive. It's a sensory overload thing. I grew up in China and I can't ride a bicycle either. It kinda sucks that I live in a typical suburb house with nothing within walking distance. I dream about selling the house and move to a condo that's close to everything. We really might do that in a ...

I know I don't have much empathy. I can have a lot of sympathy, though. It seems I have sympathy for quiet people easily. The less they complain about their problems the more I feel for them. For those who complain about everything I find it very hard to be sympathetic, even if they're truly mistrea...

To me, anybody who's wearing comfortable looking clothes would seem pleasant. I think it must be some of my sensory issues but people wearing uncomfortable clothes distract me, and I can't take them seriously. Other people wearing very high heels, very tight jeans, wool sweater under a hot sun, thin...

I'm from a family of atheists so I never believed anything. But even if you're absolutely right and they're wrong, why does it bother you if they choose the wrong thing? It's like if you have a friend who choose a career that's low-paying, or risky, or not respectable, well it's their problem, not y...

Not much. My mom would explode at anything that didn't please her we often lied to avoid getting beaten. My dad just ignored everybody. I never told them much about my life, school or friends, and they didn't ask either. It's very lucky they were not the only adults in my life.

Hi, I'm very glad I found this forum. Haven't looked around too much yet but I'm sure it'll be very informative. I think I have Asperger's, didn't realize it for a long time, because my family's just like me, so I always thought it's normal. ( I thought it's normal to have fights between family memb...
