That goldfish bowl thing reminds me of Mystery Science Theater 3000. You could get a thing to put on your head like the robot Tom Servo.

it's always more than less a clear or transparent bag.

Triton1 it seems like you don't think much of yourself, people pick up on that, I know autistic people and they are the nicest people I've ever met. Try to think more positive. Your shooting yourself in the foot before you even get started. Chinup, it will get better.

Maybe everyone thinks your huffin glue or something! Lose the plastic bag. Get one of those brown paper sacks and put some eye holes in it. Then everyone will think your the unknown comic...and you'll get along just fine!

I am afraid my location in Illinois is a problem, because even though i hate winter, i still get quite depressed when the weather warms up because I just know that absolutely no woman within the entire state of illinois, as well as the entire chicago tri state area will ever touch me with a 75 foot pipe. And no, I never wear a bag over my face in warm weather.

Mentally, Illinois women can only be described as follows; stinking, cowardly, scummy, hostile, horribly snobby, horribly rude, horribly ignorant, horribly selfish, and even living with parents who will NEVER, EVER HESITATE to call the police immediately at the ABSOLUTE SLIGHTEST HINT OF SUSPICION, and totally REFUSE to rest until the would-be boyfriend, mentally disabled or not, is either killed by the authorities, or locked up in prison and the key has been put away! EVEN IF THE WOULD-BE BOYFRIEND IS AUTISTIC, HAS CEREBRAL PALSY, ETC; in fact, the vast MAJORITY of females AND their parents in Illinois even see autism as "dangerous, contagious" and see autistic men as "total psychopaths that need to be eradicated."
Hm...well, if my kid was wanting to date a guy I thought was crazy, no, I wouldn't hesitate to try to stop them EVEN IF he were autistic or had cerebral palsy. I don't think having either of those keeps a guy from being a jerk (not to say you are, just saying parents shouldn't necessarily go easier on you because of it).

triton....Im sorry your having troubles here. If it makes you feel any better, I'm a 30 year old...never married, also in the vast social desert of illinois

I promise you, there are tons of single young ladies in illinois. Maybe you need to find someone that is more similiar to you, or understands your situatioon better. It must be difficult, since most people dont understand autism. I dont know if florida will be better, but it might be a nice change, at least it will be warmer and you can always come back to illinois later if you realize you made a mistake.

I lived in florida for awhile...it is pretty nice and people tend to be in happier moods cause they are on vacation or more relaxed in general.

do what you can to improve your general outlook and maybe the girls will come running but yes....definitley lose the plastic bag if I saw that I might run the other way

it was a really horrible, cold winter though, so I am sure no one noticed or cared.

I live in Illinois too. The women here do really suck. It's hard finding a family oriented woman that likes the outdoors and watching movies. Rather you'd have to have a million dollar salary before they give you a chance. Or would have to be really "hot" if you don't have money. So yeah the women here suck but they suck everywhere. You have to look for the minority that won't judge you on something trivial and you have to carry yourself better. If not you are always going to remain alone.
