    I get that too sometimes,the attitude that doing anything other than the Established Paradigm is going to make me someone they can look down on. (They meaning the townspeople.)

    Love is alien to me. How do I tell if I’m getting taken advantage of instead of finding a partner?

    I got sent some mildly naughty pictures when my girlfriend wanted to reassure herself I wouldn't be upset about the way she looked if I married her. She was wrapped up in a towel or something, with the bed sheet pulled all the way up over her bosom, showing off her face (which I've seen a lot...

    Do you get depressed when you don't have a special interest?

    I still like trains, horses, music, vintage stuff, and books. (And the Oxford comma!)

    Do you get depressed when you don't have a special interest?

    I've had the same special interests since I was a kid, basically, and I am not sure what it would be like to not have interests.

    Love is alien to me. How do I tell if I’m getting taken advantage of instead of finding a partner?

    Personally, speaking as a man here, I wouldn't say send pictures of yourself undressing. Blackmail is a thing. That seems very odd of him to ask for, but then I'm out of touch with contemporary social mores. It does sound indecent of him, or at least immoral, to be so infatuated with someone's...

    Lately I wonder if feminism is needed or not.

    Ohhh yes feminism is needed. It doesn't equal female supremacy. But what is needed, is a way to counter the lies people tell girls that they only exist in the context of marriage, motherhood, and child-birth. Course, I do believe that married a Mr. and a Mrs. do exist as a unit, not so much as...

    comfort movies/shows?

    Harold Lloyd & Mildred Davis' short films specifically the ones with Robert Israel's scores. But I don't watch many movies any more.

    My instructor wants to publish one of my stories!

    Tell her you write more and, if she wants, you'd be able to write other pieces. Use this as springboard to keep on building success. Build a working friendship with this instructor.

    Looking for advice on boundary issues

    That's incredibly creative. Talking is a necessity. I can trace a ton of my problems to a deep loneliness. So--I take and go talk to random people. The kid could probably do well with this, and his mother can use this time to teach him appropriate conversation (as in, not monopolizing!)

    Looking for advice on boundary issues

    Usually I can barely remember what I've written, so go on ahead with it--feel free to share, alter, do whatever. No worries.

    Unable to listen to certain bands due to negative fan interaction

    If the bully is a member of this website, you report the offending post & move on--otherwise they get the satisfaction of watching your reaction playing out here. If you have been getting messages of "tough love" from people who maybe want to help you but don't realize that you take it the...

    You do seem exceptionally good at computers. I'd disagree a tiny bit about friendship and autism, it's hard to have NT friends sometimes though, for sure. Computer science is pretty interesting.

    Wordsworth's poem with the lines: "Mother! whose virgin bosom was uncrossed/ With the least shade of thought to sin allied" basically is what was so exciting they made it a holiday. Wordsworth was a Protestant but he had the right idea

    It's the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. Protestants use the words immaculate conception to reference the whole virgin birth thing but Catholics are talking about Mary not having original sin

    I am usually doing OK but for whatever reason I fantasize about my death or disappearence each time I have finals. It's funnier because I am not too bad at this. I resent my job because it detracts from study; I resent study because it detracts from my job. All I want is to graduate & never see...
