    WTF.

    I don't even know what to say, or where to start.

    Edit:
    Okay. Can you elaborate more than what you initially stated.

    Instead of going in with such a negative outlook. Go in with an open mind, and a willing attitude. If you "don't enjoy" autism, an experience with autistic people might change your outlook. Give it a chance, and see what happens. At least you'll give it a fair go.

    I was referring to making bizarre threads with no input of a scenario probably one may want to analyse.
    If you really want an answer you'd find most would say learn to deal with it or avoid the person.

    Uh. Well. I often enjoy person X's company, because he's funny, good company, we share many activites etc. Many good qualities. I'm just not yet okay with accepting assholish stuff from him once in a while, even though his mind probably works the way that makes it O.K. for him.

    I mean, it's one thing to wish equal opportunity for the disabled, people with mood disorders or the like, and one thing to be close to them, be their friend, spend time with them etc.

    The particular traits I'm having hard time with are these:
    -assumes that I know all the same stuff as him, goes uncommunicative about the issue, and our plans get spoiled
    -(edit: sometimes) wants attention for himself, but doesn't like to be attentive to others.
    -doesn't direct the conversation to direction more interesting to him. Instead lets his mind wander off, yawns and speaks irrelevant things, or something of his own subject.
    -when we make a deal of something, when I've tried to really take into account his wishes and we have a good deal about something, he just often shrugs off the deal, "i forgot it"
    -uninitiative
    -goes from overly formal to very silly (I've no problems with silly, but overly formal is REALLY ineffective mode of communication, something completely devoid of heart and spirit)
    -very literal, argues with me about words and sayings without attempting to understand the context, mood, etc. or trying to understand the person, me. Seems (edit: passive-)aggressive and non-co-operative to me.
    -doesn't put anything into perspective

    Be forgiving, but don't be a doormat. If you don't like some of what he does, tell him the truth, and that you still want to spend time with him. But don't expect him to immediately recognize or change his behavior.
    Everything that I express is simply an opinion with varying levels of support

    If I seem like a different type to you, I hereby give you permission to type me however you want.
