    Should I apologize?

    Hey guys, I need your evaluation and recommendation please. I had a phone call with my colleague/supplier last week who I am still crushing on and usually the mood is rather nice and fun and teasing when we talk. But this time we hit a bump. It started out very nice and charming in the...

    Behavior that is both normal and not normal?

    Women on the spectrum, masking

    Hi, I'm wondering if there are women on the spectrum out there, who are confused about, or maybe just don't do the masking thing.
