    I fell for an aspie and it hurts

    Hi everyone. I hope someone can provide some helpful advice. I'm neurotypical and 8 months ago I met a man, a very interesting man. He never mentioned being an aspie, and I doubt he even knows he has this condition, but after a few months of trying to explain his behaviour I did my own research...

    NT Question - New BF may have ASD traits?

    Hi Everyone, I came on this site because everyone has always given great feedback. I am making an inquiry for a friend of mine. There's a lot I don't know. She's just getting to know him herself. I've dated someone with suspected Asperger's, so feel pretty confident in much of my knowledge...

    Started dating an Aspie... and for a while I thought he was a psychopath

    Hi everybody! (warning, long post ahead) First post on the forum :) Great to meet you all. I hope I have not offended anybody with the title of this post. A few months ago I met a person who I initially thought to be an Aspie. However, shortly after I became convinced he was a psychopath...

    Managing a friendship with an Aspie

    Hello All! I came across this website while trying to do some research on how to help the predicament I'm in and I'm hoping I can get some advice and insight! I am not on the spectrum, but I've been really encouraged by this forum that this is the right place to seek help. About a year ago, I...

    Can I trust him?

    Hi guys, NTish (w/adhd) woman here. I recently got into a relationship with a HFA guy. Now, as an NT person, it’s REALLY hard for me to take things at face value, especially when it comes to dating. Things took off FAST between us. It took maybe a couple dates for him to tell me he loved me...

    Christmas Gifts

    I am a very indecisive person, so every Christmas I find myself facing an issue. What do I choose for Christmas? My family requirements are practical things, so I decided to apply that and ask for things that help soothe or something aspie related (who has on my list amounts to fidget toys). Any...

    Please help, I don't know what to do with my Aspie ex

    Hi all, I'm new here, I'm a NT. One month ago my aspie boyfriend dumped me. I went through my head and improved myself but he still seems so overwhelmed. I had a plan moving in with him beforehand but now I'm stuck. Therefore I created this account and made a thread about it. I don't know what...

    To begin with, let me talk about our backgrounds a little. I'm a NT with depression and prone to being paranoid, grew up in a family with angry issue parent. He is an Aspie with PTSD from highschool bullying and has been dwelling in his room for over 6 years, he barely goes out, online friends...

    Aspie Husband

    My husband was recently diagnosed with aspergers. Our relationship has been an uphill battle for many years, we met in highschool, I pretty much had my own life and friends outside of him until my late thirties. After we had two children and moved to a more remote location because of his work...

    My boyfriend broke up with me after 4 years, told me he "fell out of love with me"

    What do I do? My boyfriend of 4 years just dropped me like I was nothing to him. I am NT, he is an aspie. We have worked on our relationship continuously, for all this time, and we were doing really well! I gave him his space, I let him feel free, uninhibited. Out of nowhere he came down after...

    Does our focus get interpreted as neediness?

    As some of you know I've spent quite a bit of the last year and a half in a strange relationship/friendship with a woman who I like a lot. I wish it were more than a friendship, and I think that part of her does, too. She doesn't know what she wants a lot of the time, she's admitted as much to...

    How To Proceed With My Aspie?

    I started dating an Aspie a few months ago (I am not) and things started out slowly but we had a lot in common. After a few dates (we had already begun sleeping together, and it was very good), he told me he didn't want a serious relationship for a number of reasons (work, he wasn't good in...

    Being taken Advantage of, as Aspie/Autie Women

    After responding to a separate post, it got me to thinking... ...it made me realize...that because it often seems easier for us Aspie/Autie women to meet men...it often lends itself to a whole different set of difficulties, such as the fact many NT men seem to sense our (us Aspie/Autie women's)...
