I'm 20 years old, diagnosed autistic, and have no one to talk to in real life, and haven't had any friends for many years. How to find friends? My existence is pitiful at best - all the days I go through are virtually the same, there's no adventure nor fun.

you already have higher education as in you completed it or are currently in school?
that being said, have you considered interests groups relevant to your interests? im guessing you have some sort of hobbies that you consider to be loner type things. sorry for the assumption but >comics >video games >genre'd (horror?) movies >geeky TV shows >anime Comment too long.

People are shit, OP. Our society is collapsing, you will be hard pressed to find decent people to be friends with. You've been given the gift of autism, learn an instrument and spend all your time becoming a god at it. Despite your autism there will be some chick out there who's knees get weak watching you play. Spend the rest of your life with her and disregard everyone else. 98% of us are pieces of shit.
>>16622317 I find instruments to be boring. I have some "gifts" already, such as the ability to do very big divisions mentally, with the decimals, up to many digits. I can also memorize lots of digits, objects, or other shit easily in the correct order. For example, it took me 20 minutes to memorize 300 digits of Pi, which I then recited at a family gathering.
I ended an unhealthy relationship last night and I can say with absolute confidence that it is done for good.
However, right now, I feel something resembling sadness in that it feels like I should cry but no tears would come out since my mind is already blocking any bit of memories of those days spent with the other person by reflex - likely no concrete mental image forms for me to cry over. Any advice on what this feeling means and what's a recommended next course of action?
its still just sadness, but sadness =/= tears. that is why men have the 'boys dont cry' BS.
you're just sad, but not so distraught over it that you need to cry. thats a good thing. you are starting to see things for what they really are.
my recommendation? try to get into the new schedule of things. keep doing everything you did normally, but replace the activities with ur bf with something specific. dont just lay around cuz all you do is think.
right now your bf is programmed... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ah, remember feeling this feel too Anon after my first relationship.
Being separated from your partner will always suck, can tell you right now it never exactly gets easier. But knowing that a good thing happened because of that, will make it all SO much easier to deal with.
I always think of the feeling as a movie with a really sad ending, but was also an ending that can't possibly be any better or more appropriate.
For now, I usually say its best to wait half the time of the relationship (1 year max) to just be alone with yourself and get your emotional... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My 14 year old younger sister is intent on making a Tumblr to post writing/artwork and I'm worried about the possibility of her getting doxxed or something like that. Are there any steps I can take to prevent her from getting doxxed other than just not going on Tumblr?
My sister was always crazy, but she used to be fun to be around and now I really don't want much to do with her. She started dating this guy about a year ago. He's an addict to alcohol and some drugs. She became an addict too. She's been abused and battered and controlled by this piece of shit guy she's with. This guy is crazy and I don't know how he's not in jail. But despite being manipulated, controlled, and abused she still wants to be with him despite being in a safe environment with us and numerous conversations of her being safe with us and...

>>16622203 Because she's a piece of shit, that's why. I can't tell you specifically what her reasoning is, but that's the gist of it, really, she's trash and at this point she's beyond saving. As important as family may be, I suggest breaking all ties with her and continuing your life as if you never had a sister.
Ugh, this is awful to hear Anon but I do kinda agree with >>16622267
I talked with some friends about a similar situation and their advice does ring pretty true. People have free will, its their right to choose to fuck up, even if it hurts to watch. You're the one who's responsible for your own life so focus on that if nothing else.
Sounds like you did all you can, so don't feel guilty about it. All I can say is worry about the child since the poor thing really doesn't have a choice in any of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>16622420 No need to put her up for adoption, we'll gladly watch the baby. But now all of the sudden the father wants rights. Meaning to bring the baby home to their apartment. My family doesn't trust him since he's an abusive person. But now my sister wants to bring the child back home with her. They could both end up being killed by this prick. So it's really hard to just stand there and watch on the sidelines, you know? I really do want to help my sister. I just want to figure what is her malfunction here
I'm 28, have been married for 1 year, and my wife is entering her third trimester. Now, my wife wants to hyphenate the child's last name, whereas I want it to only inherit my last name (my wife kept her maiden name, which I am completely for because my mother did the same and I'm fine with it).
However, being the wonderful person she is, she said it's fine if we keep things traditional - she knows its just a label and it doesn't matter. Basically, the decision falls to me, and, while I prefer not hyphenate, I know that doing so would be a pleasant... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
my only issue with it really is what happens to HIS kids? Is he going to give his kid three last names? or four if he meets another weirdo like him? at what point does someone have too many last names?
jokes aside, its something to consider, and it might be a bit confusing on your son.
my recommendation? which name is the coolest / nicest / least easy to be made fun of?
make that the last name... or just use your name since you seem to be the one who wants it most. make the OTHER name (your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>16622201 hyphenated names are stupid. Taking a surname from the father is a way of avoiding overly long names like >>16622210 pointed out. It's just practical and it's an established tradition. It's not broken don't fix it. She's being impractical.
Help me please advice I love her..She tried to let's just be friends me

>>16622181 You can't make someone love you. If she doesn't feel that way about you then it's time to abandon ship. There's nothing wrong with feeling shitty for being rejected but don't be mad at her for it. Find another girl to pine over.
>>16622188 Fuck dubs... I know guys, but she was always sitting near me in uni intentionally, even when I moved away. Eventually I gave in got her number, and we started goingt to events together.
Now she says she would be happy to see me at events, but doesn't want to be friends.
It feels like she told her friends I was going to be there, and they are bringing guys to, and she wants them to get my approval, and if we are "just friends" we can't be defined as "dating" it sucks...

So for the past three nights my sleep has been really shitty. I've been having stomach issues that have kept me awake. Yesterday I felt exhausted, but now after getting very little sleep last night, I just feel like I don't give a shit about anything and am super pissed off.
I'm visiting my extended family now, and I've been avoiding them all day. My mother tried to get me to come down and after I managed to get her to go away I was literally shaking with rage and had to grab the shit out of my bed and apply force to it to get the urge to punch something...

I'm 28 years old. I'm close to getting a BoS in physics. A degree that's supposed to take three years. It's taken about 5~6. I tell myself it's because I've been (and still am) severely sick. I live in an apartment owned and paid for by my mother (she lives with her partner). She can't afford to pay for it any more. I'm going to have to find a job. I've never worked more than entry level jobs; receptionist, clerk, secretary, high school math/physics tutor... I'm scared. I feel so weak, pathetic and... Comment too long.

>>16622176 Dude, you're not a failure. That's a huge accomplishment. That's a hard degree. I dropped out so you're less of a failure than me. Maybe you should go downtown sometime and see all the fucking lazy, good-for-nothing, worthless losers who have never had a job and can barely read. Most people in this world are fucking losers. People who grew up around a bunch or rich, privileged people have no sense of perspective.

I live in Sweden. Most of the time it feel like the people working entry level jobs have got their shit together way more than me. Even the beggars on the street must have had some determination and drive to get themselves all the way here from Romania. I come form a family of doctors and engineers.

Dear Sarah, you are my best friend. Trust me when I say this because I look at you now and I see a mirror image of myself from a year ago. Your boyfriend is a fuckboy. I can sense it now for miles. I can see it just from his scenemo hair cut that he is indeed a fuckboy. It's not worth it. I wonder where yall will be in three months time. If I ever meet him, I think I might deck him. Right now you are so caught up with him that you can't even answer a fucking skype call. We haven't seen each other in months. We haven't really had the chance to really sit down... Comment too long.

Psychological projection, also known as blame shifting, is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unpleasant impulses by denying their existence while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude.
Sigmund Freud, known as the father of psychoanalysis, recorded his observations of group dynamics in Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego. In his work, he refers to Wilfred Trotter as the group conditions its members, Freud states "opposition to the herd is as good as separation from it, and is therefore anxiously avoided." Such fear causes the individual members and even leaders of a particular group to go along with the decisions a group based in accordance to its culture. On a micro scale,... Comment too long.

I'm almost done with a 2 year energy technology certificate, and honestly, I don't like it. I started out thinking might as well just pick something in this field like a power plant worker, lineman, or welder, and while that'd be great, it's fucking hard and I just want to get a damn career so I can start living. I don't want to be at the bottom of the totem pole my whole life and have to be the best of the best just to get paid more, like a welder. I'm starting to rethink this whole blue collar thing.

>>16622135 What exactly would you do to make you so much more money? I like being HVAC, but I don't expect work to be my passion, or give me emotional fulfillment. It's a fucking job, a job that pays decently, let's me work with my hands, and feels good to do some real work in the world instead of typing on a computer all day. It is sometimes cold, and sometimes hot, but I am not a baby who has to have things exactly right all the time or else something is wrong with life.

So I was accepted into an engineering program last year. I wound up not going and decided I would work full time and try to help my mom (who I love very much). The thing is that the job I'm in offers no movement upwards, and the GM has basically tapped out after 15 years of work at like 37k. There's a dude who has been there for 10 years (making <14k) that got his first promotion a few weeks ago - a mere 20k. I already have another degree, but I've been unable to find work with it. This job is basically the best I could get.
So I emailed the college... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My game plan is to try and get my shifts on the weekends so, if I do get accepted, I can try to eek out two weekends working while doing engineering. If it doesn't work out, I still have a job. The shitty thing is that I already told them to reduce my hours and they're not increasing them anymore.
