This is probably a very silly post.. but anyways... Does anyone else eat in a weird way? And do people comment on how you eat? I tend to pick at and examine what im eating and have done it since I was young. Ex. I like to eat corn on the cob by eating one piece of corn at a time, when i have foods t...

you look the same age you claim to be, to me. different people look at the same thing and see different things. in different situations, you look different. plenty of strangers have expressed surprise and disbelief that i am 34. they expected i was younger. like 16. asians and transsexuals tend to l...

Anyone else think that the stereotype of all Aspies loving computers is overblown. many I'm sure end up in IT because it often doesn't require top notch motor skills, for example, programming? Sure some maybe hyperfocused on it but I'm sure others would love to be an athlete, military etc. a disprop...

I hardly do. what about everyone else ?, I've pretty much come to dislike neurotypicals.. and.. Sadly just people in general. every day, i obsessive compulsively leave the house for 10 or more hours. yes, i dislike neurotypicals. (fine). but, in their defense, i do not know many autistics. so maybe ...

Does anyone here get accused of being shy, when in fact it's just a case of not having anything to say a lot of times, particularly in groups? I think perhaps, social anxiety and shyness can develop as a result of being left out etc. but being quiet is not the same as lack of confidence. Take any le...

I read that an Aspie trait is having an odd posture or gait. I've just recently noticed I've always had poor posture. I basically slouch like L from Death Note. :lol: Does anyone else have posture issues? What do you do about it? plenty of precious little "people" told me "walk like a...

I'm not technically in the overweight range, but I definitely have some extra fat on my body, I don't fit the skinny body type that almost all guys seem to find most attractive. I'm 5'3/5'4, 125-130 lbs and have a 32'' waist, which I get the impression is pretty bad. So when guys say they prefer thi...

I don't have any confidence in myself physically or emotionally. I'm really starting to get sick of it, but I just don't know how to gain confidence! I've had issues with my weight, my hair, and even my nose. I'm not happy with them and it drives me crazy! oh, and now I'm suffering from acne :/ I'm ...

Why is a short man frowned upon so much in society? Tall women or even thick built girls are not frowned upon as much as short men are. So why is being short if your male so 'wrong'. At 5ft7 I had people treat me badly because of my height :x answer: heightism, sizeism the media protrays tall (lean,...

I've been noticing recently that I have a strange way of reacting to compliments. Usually when I get one, it's from someone I don't know (like the people I help over the phone). They'll say something like, "You're the best!" and I'll find myself rolling my eyes. I've always felt like compl...

I mentioned this in another post, I have an on again/off again relationship with food. I weighed 30 lbs until I was eight years old, mostly because the only thing I wanted to eat was corn, broccoli and sliced bread. Then I was okay I guess through most of my teenage years and I learned to enjoy diff...

I try really hard in real life to make friends due to my mom's constant pushing but it never works. I get so scared around people I squeak and run away and hide. My anxiety meds don't do crap and the doctor won't even listen to me she just pretends i'm not there and talks to me mom. I'm an adult for...

Yes, for college, I moved 500 miles away. In college, lived in 6 different apartments. Quite frankly, I did not get into any cliques before or after moving. On the other hand, that could be an advantage, in that no friends to lose. :evil: You can't be "sure" you'd fit in w/out going. Besid...
