I’m an autistic man too!

I’ve had a few situations where some part of human behaviour suddenly clicked due to an explanation. Specifically small talk (it’s a probe used to gauge mood and willingness to communicate) and flirting (is deliberately vague in order to provide a socially acceptable way to reject someone without actually rejecting them, which seems purposely designed to be difficult for autistic folks).

Are there any similar social concepts that clicked for you? And could you share them?

Also, how would you say being autistic has affected your writing, if at all?

The measure of a person is how they treat their enemies. “All bets are off” is the exact justification that actual nazis used for their actions. Have some moral standards.

To clarify. I work with computers. I just don't yet have the in depth knowledge of them and there is so much information that I don't even know where to start.

What one piece of advice would you give to someone who shares your mindset of "must know how it works", but doesn't actually know anything about the subject?

Hmm. Not a bad idea. There's at least one game that I've played that would be much better with a few tweaks that I don't know how to do. I'll give it a shot. Thanks man.
