Is it bad to be extra nice to people?

I'm nice to everyone, but I'm extra nice to very few people. It's those few people who gets mad at me and start hurting me, not everyone else. It doesn't make any sense. Like when I looked up to my supervisor at Arby's, it ended badly. And now, I'm especially nice to a manager at my current job and he's starting to behave like the Arby's person.

Thing is, people who initially liked me eventually stopped and the reason is always bc I'm extra nice to them. They walk out on me suddenly and start hurting me. The 2 people mentioned here are prime examples. How come other people can look up to someone or be nice AF to them but I can't?

My current supervisor recently started ignoring me, just like that Arby's supervisor did. Both used to like me. idk they accused me of being a creep or w/e.

"You're a creep."
"If you weren't so in love with him..."
"Are you massively in love with him?"
"What's up with your obsession with him?"
"You have a crush on him."

Said to me by multiple coworkers multiple times over the past several months. Reminds me of Arby's. BTW, other ppl looked up to the Arby's supervisor and it was appreciated.

The thing is when you start (this is under your dark angel account) looking up to people things go wrong for you. You mentioned previously you were in therapy. This is something that you need to work on in therapy sessions as due to your previous mention of asperger's means that you have taken things too far in the past and you need to learn appropriate work related behaviour. Due to your asperger's you miss social cues and it sounds like (due to the fact that you are being called a creep) you are on the road to taking things too far.

I suggest that you go through your previous posts as dark angel as they were full of good advice.

Because without realising it you are pushing the boundaries between workmates and friendship too far and making people feel uncomfortable. You have to start to learn to read when people are not ok with your actions. And in turn that will stop you from getting hurt too. I'm not sure how that can be done exactly but you do need some input to help you with this. I'm not sure we're the right people here.

Nonperson is right. Until you learn appropriate work related behaviour this is going to happen time and time again. A therapist is your best bet in helping you. We cannot teach you since a) we dont know you irl so am not best placed to know what you do or dont do and b) we are not experts especially in autism.

Have you tried an autism specific charity or forum? They may help you better than we can because they have more expertise than us.

If you are not good with reading people, that is okay! You can always explain that and ask them to tell you when you have done something inappropriate. I usually ask people if they are mad at me or upset with me and to explain why, since I am not good with knowing the kinds of things you are describing about boundaries. I sometimes also mention up front that I need specific boundaries and rules, because that helps me to understand better what is appropriate and what is not. If it is something you struggle to understand, it is absolutely okay to ask people to clarify what is okay and what is not. Just keep in mind what is okay with one person might not be okay with another person, so that's why asking in each specific situation is important. For example, what is okay in a work situation is often different than what is okay with friends, or with a doctor. So that is why it is really important to find out the rules for each type of situation. I bet if you were up front about not understanding what the boundaries and rules are, people would be willing to explain and be more up front about letting you know if things went too far. Especially once they realised you had good intentions and just legitimately did not know it was wrong.

edit to add: If things around your supervisor have changed, maybe you could ask for a meeting with them. You could explain that you are not always good with boundaries, and to ask them for rules about how to interact and what is appropriate. That way they would understand that if you did something wrong, it was not intentional, and you are wanting to make sure things are okay.

You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.
