Yes, I hear what you’re saying, but social cues aren’t something I struggle with. I work with clients on a daily basis as a successful hair colorist & I carry myself with real confidence. I like and know who I am. I run the salon & I can virtually talk and find common ground with anyone. People do like me & respond to my style–which I would deem friendly & genuine.

I find my biggest problem, is that my expectations and standards I set for others are too high and no one that I’ve met in the last year has really been able to meet them. I have little to zero tolerance for people who are not conscientious or intelligent. I think in order to have friends, at some point in the relationship, you’ll have to tolerate parts of their behavior & this is hard for me. I get along better with males. I’ve literally just accepted that this is how it is.
