    How to make my mom come at a less inconvenient time?

    If I try to do a thing like sitting down and using R, the statistical programming language and the time is bad like just before or after sunset or I am given food etc, I won't like it. I will hate it. I keep waiting for a perfect day, and I figured out that I should wake up early, and some other...

    Why is it hard to get people’s attention?

    I know someone said that people in general, simply aren’t interested in talking about Autism; but I’ve been trying to reach out to people and I’m having a real hard time getting anyone to dialogue with me. Does anyone know anyway to provoke a response? I know @Gerontius said telling a story...

    New friends and my naive approach

    I started College this fall and I found a lot of new friends there. It was nice at beginning but later was getting harder. My parents always kept telling me that when someone do something not nice to me and later is again nice it's means that they regret but they aren't brave enough to admit...

    No idea how my HFA man feels about me (NT)

    I am an NT female who is ‘seeing’ a HFA male. I feel some history is needed, sorry it’s so long... It started as an affair 8 years ago. We first met at 16, and there has always been a spark but neither of us were single. I got married to my long term partner and after a few years there were some...

    Can I trust him?

    Hi guys, NTish (w/adhd) woman here. I recently got into a relationship with a HFA guy. Now, as an NT person, it’s REALLY hard for me to take things at face value, especially when it comes to dating. Things took off FAST between us. It took maybe a couple dates for him to tell me he loved me...

    Abused Amoebas and Career Correlations (First published Nov 2017)

    I was reading an excerpt from a zoological textbook the other day about the reactions of different types of amoeba to stimulus. (Yes - this is the sort of thing you will find in my web surfing history. Shut up.) It seems that amoeba, generally, rarely move because of a positive stimulus...

    Can feelings change?

    Hello everyone. I am looking for some insight into my previous relationship. I am an NT and my partner was an aspie. We didn't work out. He told me he was not the right guy for me, and he could not give me what I wanted. He said sharing a bed was too hard for him. I tried to respect that the...

    My Introduction

    Hello! My name is Shonda, and I am neurotypical. I did a lot of occupational therapy work with children who were on the spectrum, and years later, wound up dating a man with Apergers. Though I am not on the spectrum myself, autism has been a large part of my life and I my reasons for joining...

    Aspergers Jokes? Communication enablers or beyond the pale?

    The world seems seriously short of Aspergers jokes. Laughing AT Aspies seems common in the wider media with the infamous 'sheldonitis' skewing things but are there any good Aspergers jokes that illuminate the condition to the NT's out there without making us look dumb?

    Anyone use 'ABC' to describe their Aspergers to NT's?

    I don't know if its a real thing recognised anywhere but i find this 'ABC' explanation the best way to communicate to NT's what my HF Asperger's is like: NT's typically follow the formula, if your good at A and B, then you must also be great at C This has led to me constantly being labelled as...

    Patterns & Systems

    Do you think in patterns? Map systems? Use systematization to think and remember? Recognize patterns? Sometimes fear patterns? It was my sophomore year in college. I was having an existential crisis - which isn't all that unique of a thing... ...I do get that. I'm visiting with some of his...
