Good question, OP. I hope my opinion as a woman of color was helpful :) . Since most dating sites are predominately white, you can very easily find an alternative to Craigslist if you don't like the trend you are seeing on there.

Not making eye contact with someone does not mean you are not talking face to face with him or her. I'm not convinced that not making eye contact is the sole reason why you've eluded catching the flu. Some problems with the "autism is the next step in evolution" idea. 1. From a purely &quo...

Yes, it's OK. However, of course I immediately wonder why she wants to "try" a black guy. Sounds bizarre and racist to me. I'm guessing racial stereotypes are involved. Otherwise there wouldn't be something to "try" about black guys as if they are a different form of human. I'm r...

I'm neither happy nor content. I was diagnosed with depression a few years ago, but I suspect that I've had it for much longer.

Yeah, I agree that he looks scared. In the pictures he was looking at his toddler son who was playing on the floor. So his scared/shocked eyes are inappropriate.

I don't understand what "vacant look" means? I was on another forum that's not autism related, it's basically a women's chat forum. The users on there were discussing a guy on Teen Mom and how his eyes looked crazy, like he was high on drugs, etc. They used the word "vacant" to d...

These people weren't even on the same LEVEL as me. Did they even care? "Uh, I dunno, maybe respect is like, being nice to people?" It made my brain hurt. What are these people? Are they even real? I began to feel as though they were some sort of automatons, as if I was stuck in a video ga...

I literally finished reading an article about this 2 minutes ago. "The Myers-Briggs Personality Test Is Pretty Much Meaningless" " In summary, it appears that the MBTI does not conform to many of the basic standards expected of psychological tests. Many very specific predictions about...

I read through this thread but I'm still confused about the benefits of GABA. Does it basically increase productivity and decrease social anxiety? I was kinda bummed to read that it doesn't help with noise sensitivity. There is some quite recent research on one particular probiotic as an exceptional...

I've attempted to analyze a few baby photos of myself. In most of them, I look worried/scared/uncomfortable. My eyebrows are scrunched up and I'm not smiling. In a few I actually look happy. One specific picture seems to be a professional type photo where you dress up the baby and have the baby sit ...

No one knows what causes autism yet , but I agree with the scientists who think that bacteria in the human gut might cause it. I have come across studies about how those microorganisms can affect weight and depression. Idk nothing else seems as promising.

You again? Did you ever answer my question about why folks such as yourself use terms like "black on black crime" but not "white on white crime?" Or why Donald Trump is concerned with illegal immigrants who are rapists instead of your white peers such as Brock Turner who are rapi...

Has anyone ever been asked "Are you shy?" I've been getting that a lot lately. I don't think I ever been asked it as I think it's blatantly obvious - I always think my cheeks go betroot in colour and give the game away , this may not be the case but it feels like it. I don't think I blush...

I can't recall anyone asking me if I'm quiet, but they comment on how quiet I am. Has anyone ever been asked "Are you shy?" I've been getting that a lot lately.

Most people like parties. However, I don't find parties to be fun at all. My guess is that a lot of people like college because it's like one big party to them. A person with average social skills would consider college the best time of their life because they party a lot, get drunk, have sex with y...
