    The reason that I want part-time relationships is to have the best of both worlds. I'd be both in a relationship and single.

    Yes, if you don't mind being celibate, then it's easier and cheaper. I couldn't stand it, though....

    You could go through that process with loads of girls and not get anywhere with any of them. Each time could take months. I'm several years older than you and I haven't found a girl who wants to go at my pace with me....

    But you won't know how she'll react to that until you ask her for sex the first time. She could be fine before then, but snap and lash out at you. Some people are very touchy about the subject of sex. She might be offended at you raising the subject before taking her on a minimum number of dates or having been seeing her exclusively for a minimum amount of time.

    Most women never initiate...

    The problem with being frank about what you want sexually is that it will likely get you a sharp slap around the face, a drink thrown over you etc. That's what the people who advise asking directly for consent don't take into account.

    I didn't say that sex should be a commodity - although the reality is that most women demand/require some form of payment before they will agree to have sex (flowers, chocolates, jewellery, restaurant dinner, designer clothes, money, him paying her bills etc.) That's true in many long-term relationships as well, in which the man pays all the bills, mortgage, holidays etc. whilst the woman contributes...

    Even then, the large majority of girls expect and demand exclusivity quite soon on.

    Most sex doesn't involve either party actually saying yes.

    Freezing isn't consent - that's the point of the video and article.

    Shaunie, you've confused the terms. Verbal and non-verbal consent are two types of consent. Verbal consent uses words; non-verbal consent doesn't. Someone choosing to take their clothes off and initiate or be receptive to sex are examples of non-verbal consent. Non-verbal consent means consent that isn't verbal - it doesn't...

    replied to Part-time relationships
    I wouldn't say that I want to take it slowly, because I don't. I want to jump straight in, but still have plenty of time for myself.

    Yes, ideally I'd be single during the time that I'm not spending with her. It'd be the best of both worlds - I'd be in a relationship during the hours that I'm with her, and single during the hours that I'm not.

    Perhaps you're right that part-time...

    Part-time relationships

    How can I start a part-time relationship? I'd prefer it to a full-time one, because it would be easier, cheaper and contain all the good things of a relationship without taking up too much time. I'd not have to suffer the stress of being interrogated by her family and friends, nor would I be coerced into watching The Notebook or reality shows. It'd also mean that I could maintain the freedom that...

    Being told that I'm privileged

    I've lived in poverty all my life, no-one cares about me and I find every day a bitter struggle. Despite that, many people have told me that I'm "inherently privileged" and as such I should never complain about anything, nor should I ask for help or receive help in regard to anything. When I've said the truth that I'm not, I've been told that I'm "so used to being privileged that I...

    I've heard many people suggest that Gates is autistic. I've never heard it said about Putin, though I've heard many people say that he has narcissistic personality disorder.

    But surely you've often compared how you're treated to how other people are treated. You've seen other people having good friendships, being popular, well-liked, successful, admired, getting loads of hot girls etc.

    It'd be very interesting if there are autistic people who have overcome their difficulties and become successful and popular. I know that the condition is permanent, but are...

    replied to Autism
    You've said that you've been picked on a lot, that you avoid people a lot and that very few people have liked you. You wouldn't be as anxious and introverted if you'd not been treated badly by many people. Even if for the large majority of your life you didn't know or suspect you were autistic, you were aware that you were disliked and victimised. Many autistic people were a lot older than you when...

    replied to Autism
    Most people don't want to know autistic people. When I've heard people talk about autistic people, it's usually to say that the person in question is/was 'a weirdo', 'a dork', 'a loser' etc. Most people's reaction is to avoid them or pick on them. I don't know how that can be changed, when there's such a widespread dislike of autistic people.

    Even if you're diagnosed with autism, you more likely than not also have other mental disorders, so it's worth find out what they might be as well.

    Why do so many people hate autistic people? Most autistic people have been victimised a lot, and I don't really understand why. I've never heard anyone say anything positive about autistic people....

    Autism is lifelong, so no-one has experienced being autistic and not autistic. Hence it's difficult for autistic people to relate to non-autistic people and vice versa.

    It'd be useful if someone would give advice about how best to obtain consent in an intended one-night stand. If you're male, asking directly would likely result in being sharply slapped around the face, insulted, having a drink thrown over you etc.

    In regard to drunkenness, millions of people have had sex with someone new whilst under the influence of alcohol. A high proportion of those...
