Social Skills

One of my friend cannot interact with people, he is a loner. He is a really nice guy. How would you advice him to be more social. He says he cannot make a small talk, he is shy and he feels others hate him because he does not talk much.

No, you just have to wait...

I love my boyfriend very much. We have a wonderful relationship and I would like to get married. We would both like to get married. We've talked about it, and agreed that we share this goal. Yay! However, we have very different ideas about when to get engaged. I want to shout it from the rooftops, but he wants "more time". Please help me understand his reasons for waiting to make our intentions official and public. [more inside]

A rational explanation of the GOP budget?

Can anyone point me toward some writing by a smart person in support of the GOP's budget? I'm not being snarky—I am sure that wealthy, anti-intellectual people looking out for their own interests is a motivation on the part of some congresspeople, but I am not ready to believe in a world where it is the only one.

One of those, "but you don't look sick" situations.

How do I explain to people the aftermath of what is probably due to mono? People (family, cute girls) keep brushing off my physical symptoms when I try to concisely explain that, even though I'm infinitely better than I was a couple months ago, my energy fuel tank still empties suddenly and unpredictably, and then I feel awful, freezing, aching, dizzy, and extremely sick until I sleep it off?

Should I text this stranger?

Yesterday I received a text message from an excited stranger asking me whether I was ready for some sort of meet-up (possibly a first date) tomorrow (today). I duly yet tongue-in-cheekly informed her that she had the wrong number. Now I'm wondering, on a scale from stalker/freak/weirdo to fun/random/friendly, how inappropriate would it be for me to follow up tomorrow, asking if it went as well as she hoped? (Obviously in a humorous and "I'm aware of how random this is" kinda way) [more inside]

I have no mouth and I must perform maintenance on my brain

Fellow communication-challenged mefites: how do you work around your communication problems to participate effectively in therapy? Often I find that regardless of whether I have my thoughts lined up or not, I cannot. get. words. out, as though someone cut the circuit between my brain and my mouth. So far I've had no luck circumventing the issue by writing things down; same problem. It's inhibiting my ability to (a) convey the severity of the problems I'm experiencing and (b) address them adequately if we happen to hit upon relevant topics by chance. TL;DR details inside, but that's the gist -- any suggestions for other work-arounds? [more inside]

Sign Languages to Facilitate Communication in an Institutional Setting

Recently corrections officials at a local prison turned down a proposal from the inmates for an ASL (American Sign Language) program, on the grounds that teaching inmates to communicate non-verbally was a security risk. This got me thinking: Wouldn't there already be non-verbal languages commonly used in prisons? Gang members, who are well-represented in prison populations, have systems of hang signals, would there be institutional variations? Have non-verbal communication systems been used in other institutional settings, like POW or concentration camps? Obviously, a universal cross-institutional language is unlikely, but any resources, web or book-based dealing with the topic of non-verbal communication in prisons or similar settings would be much appreciated.
