    Feeling alone in a sea with seemingly no options

    I miss intimacy with another person to have someone to hug, hold hands with, and share my struggles in a deeply personal way that I can't with anyone else. I miss that connection to fall back on, but I also feel like I'm almost not allowed to. The only place I meet others is work where they're...

    Aspie Boyfriend just break up with me. What now?

    I met this guy online a few months ago. We started chatting and then after a few months of constant chatting we finally met in person. He already had told me about his asperger, but that day I could see it clear, and I just don´t mind. I did like him as he is. After a few days he told me that...

    Very happy with the Aspie I'm dating + some questions :)

    Hi everybody, I hope you are doing well :), happy to be sharing some thoughts with you again. A while ago I wrote a post about the time I started to date an Aspie and thought he was a psychopath. I felt like sharing an update about how things are going, and some questions. So here it goes! As...

    Adapting to being single for life

    Following my very long first thread here about being single/virgin at almost age 30 (my 30th birthday is this Thursday), I was wondering about choosing to resign myself to be single for life. It is another path, but I was thinking about how I have a lot of quirks and difficulties that would make...

    Is dating harder for men with ASD compared to women with ASD?

    I have noticed throughout my life that I have met a lot more men who have some degree of autism or Asperger's who are single, compared with women with the same condition. Given that men are still expected to do all of the approaching and initiating, no matter how far society has advanced in...

    Started dating an Aspie and need advice!

    Hello, I need your advice! I have recently started dating a lovely Aspie guy (I'm NT). We spend most of our time talking on the phone, and I believe he is more comfortable to get to know me this way as he can be very shy around me when in person. Everything was going great, or so I thought...

    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...

    Suspect my boyfriend has Aspergers

    I have been with my boyfriend for almost 3 years. We are in our late 20s and in the last 6 months we moved in together. He has problems socially and doesn’t have many friends or lasting friendships. He has trouble verbalizing his emotions or showing much emotion. I didn’t notice right away, but...

    Hi Everybody, I’m Here To Learn

    My name is Xander and I’m a NT Male, who has recently found myself attracted to an Aspie Female. I mainly joined this forum so that I can at least begin to understand how the mind of an Aspie works. I met a girl who works as a cashier for the gas station I go to at least 2-3 times a day while...

    Dating someone with Asperger's while long distance

    I'm NT and have been dating someone with Asperger's for about 3 months. During that time we haven't lived in the same city. We're only about 2.5 hours away but it's been a constant struggle to see each other and to communicate between seeing each other. Before I knew he had Asperger's I had a...

    BF disputes EVERYTHING I say

    I'm looking for feedback on communication with my bf. He disputes much of what I say. It feels like it’s CONSTANT and it wears me down. Like can’t you just say “uh huh” and move on in the convo? I thought aspies were ultra- logical, but half the time I can’t figure out where he’s coming...

    26 NT and 36 AS- mixed messages.

    Hi guys, I’ll try my best to keep this as short as possible. In August, I started dating an aspie guy who I really liked (let’s call him Joe). He was very forthright with his feelings for me; however, he has issues with drink. I told him I didn’t know whether I could handle that because I have...

    Dating someone on the spectrum

    Hi, I'm dating someone who thinks he might be on the AS spectrum. I was talking to someone at work last fall about some stuff we were dealing with at home and she casually suggested he may be somewhere on the spectrum. I didn't' say anything to him about it, but observed his behavior and...
