    Desperately need help and advice on this man

    All right. This is starting to get into the area of sexual harassment. I think you might have a case here depending on your company's culture and how you present your story. If I understand you correctly, he was the one who pursued you despite your resistance and eventually you "gave in."...

    Desperately need help and advice on this man

    Sounds like classic "gaslighting". This guy is dangerous, do not underestimate him. Thank God my situation was not like that. And it has been resolved. I agree with you about the psychologist. Don't try to figure out his head any more. What you most likely need is a lawyer. But before...

    Announcing your secret to the world

    Telling your secret to the world? One word: Don't. I understand what it is like to carry a burden and how it is hard, even unfair, to have to hide part of oneself. But, once your secret's out of the closet, it's impossible to put back in. There is a very real risk in revealing your status...

    Two Perspectives on The Workforce

    My feelings towards SSI and/or disability are colored by seeing how my neighbors who live SSI/disability struggle to make ends meet. I do not recommend it unless there is NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE. Once you get into the SSI/disability/welfare system, you will find that your choices in life will...

    Internet relationships- tips for young players

    Here's another internet safety tip that I see violated all the time: forwarding emails with all the previous addresses intact. That is like giving out the keys to everyone's house on the list. Don't do it. If you must forward on something that has been forwarded to you, remove all previous...

    Finding / seeing faces in things?

    I do too, I see a lot of faces in things other people wouldn't, but I've learned to keep that to myself.

    ????? Am I Correctly Aiming For Girls In My Own League ????? --Assuming leagues exist--

    It is a big problem, women's trust being betrayed, and I just don't understand why guys let other guys get away with it. Maybe that is what it is going to take, guys like you speaking out against other guys' bad behavior and saying, hey, you are ruining it for the rest of us. But men--and...

    ????? Am I Correctly Aiming For Girls In My Own League ????? --Assuming leagues exist--

    Yes, I am American. I understand that in some parts of the world mobile home parks are called caravans. No, I don't make them fill out questionnaires; it's not necessary. I can pretty much tell whether a guy is in my league just by watching how he interacts with others. Or how he approaches...

    ????? Am I Correctly Aiming For Girls In My Own League ????? --Assuming leagues exist--

    Well, I am going to stir up the pot by saying that there are definitely guys who are out of my league. And it has very little to do with looks. If you want to be in my league, then you must have comparable education to me. A college degree or some college. High school only may be acceptable...

    Considering disability social support in place of regular job

    Also, you need to be prepared to fight hard and long for your rights. You need to be as tenacious as a bulldog. Meek and mild, laid-back, mellow has no place in this world. Those who are not prepared to stand up for themselves, who are not willing to stand up for themselves, who are not able...

    Considering disability social support in place of regular job

    While I have not had any personal experience with disability/social security, I do know people who are on it, and this is what I have observed. As others have pointed out, you will barely get enough to cover your basic needs. You will not have much choice in where/how you want to live as you...

    Desperately need help and advice on this man

    One word. Leave. You need to take care of yourself. Not him. No one gets a free pass for abuse because they are ASD, Bipolar or whatever. No one. He's made it abundantly clear what he thinks about you. It's not going to change. It's not going to get better. In fact, it may get worse...

    ~~~ Are These Good First Messages To Ladies On P.O.F Dating (Opinions Please) ?? ~~~

    There's a song out there called "Me Neither" which I think is kind of cute. It's about a guy trying to pick up a woman at a bar who is initially not interested. He asks her if she wants to talk and she says, "no," and he says, "well, that's a relief, me neither." Then he asks her to dance and...

    ~~~ Are These Good First Messages To Ladies On P.O.F Dating (Opinions Please) ?? ~~~

    Actually, I've never written a profile, nor have I responded to one. I am, by choice, no longer in the dating game for many personal reasons which I won't go into here. Yes, women do judge by looks (as well as men). That's a human trait which I don't think will ever be totally eradicated...

    ~~~ Are These Good First Messages To Ladies On P.O.F Dating (Opinions Please) ?? ~~~

    As a woman who has received more than her share of unwanted lecherous attention (that's a good old-fashioned word you don't hear much these days!), I agree with pushpin. I used to read the dating columns in the local newspaper just for fun and it seemed overwhelmingly that the women who posted...
