I only hope to live long enough to see her die, so I can piss on her grave after she dies. I’ve learned to hate people. When I was a child, I learned to hate other children for their bullying, until I learned to retaliate with savagery. It is amazing how when a bully that used to punch you, etc, for being different, avoids you because you finally kicked him in the balls 3 times, punched him in the face, kicked him in the knees and slammed his face into the concrete. Another thing I noticed is that other children weren’t so eager to try their luck with bullying after seeing that, especially since I said if I got beaten up I’d simply smuggle in a bread knife and stab them in their throat. My assumption was as a fairly intelligent child, that adults would be better, although I had my doubts when I started reading more about human history in depth.

I am single and I would like to hang out with women who have asperger’s or “high-functioning” autism because I feel like it would be easier to build a friendship or romantic relationship with someone on a similar wavelength. Then again though, I really don’t have expectations of this leading to romance but if it did, that would be okay.

I frequently got lost, I was an eternal daydreamer. I needed time to process my environment, being so easily and gleefully distracted. I empathised with the more colourful and eccentric characters in my neighbourhood. The homeless seemed to me like the wounded moth or lame spider in need of help, and I would have no qualms about bringing them home with me. I am still like this today. I have never been able to walk away from someone in trouble, even strangers who look unsafe.

We also notice that … 1. I recently had a conversation with a friend who commented that people with AS should “just use common sense” when navigating the dating scene. Few pieces of advice are more frustrating to a mild autistic, since “common sense” in dating involves intuitively knowing the assumptions that others will make about you based on the cues you give off through what you say and do — which, of course, is precisely what AS causes you to miss.

The idea that people communicate interest other than through what they actually say, or that even what someone says is fraught with layers and nuances — none of this occurs to us, since our instinct which we assume the rest of the world shares is to just say what we think and feel at length without any filters.
