    New series of 'The Undateables'

    I realise that a thread was started before about the new series of 'The Undateables' on Channel 4 (UK), but I'm starting this one because I've just been contacted by a member of their team about it. A few months ago, they started following me on Instagram and I assumed this was because my...

    does aspergers play a role here?

    I was diagnosed with mild aspergers in my teens. I am now 23 and have struggled with dating, relationships with women my whole life as a result of simply not meeting women in daily life. I want to meet people and make more friends and all that, but I am somewhat shy and reserved in social...

    Light bulb moment. NT married to an undiagnosed Aspie

    This forum has been a gem. I've been with my husband for 7 years but married for a little over a year. Our relationship right from the start was not typical. I was very flexible and went along with whatever he wanted because I enjoyed it and also I was getting to know him. That's my personality...

    Can you be happy with living alone for a long time?

    I'm not saying that I am alone. I have many friends and besides, I am only 19. But sometimes I worry how life will turn out when I am in my mid 20s to 30s. I feel that I might be alone for a long time to come, and when I mean alone, I mean having that special someone in your life. I was never...

    At the end of my rope

    I'm 29 years old and I have yet to enter a relationship. It's not that I haven't wanted it; I've wanted a girlfriend since the 1st grade. I had an abusive father and an overbearing mother. I was picked on in childhood for being fat and weird. Every friend I've ever had has either moved away...

    How Does AS Affect You with Approaching and Flirting?

    I've always been terrified of flirting and generally approaching women I like. This is mainly because I'm hyper-awkward combined with my own inability to gauge my own facial expressions and reaction and wind up fearing that I'm coming off as creepy. It's especially challenging in this day and...

    A NT females relationship with an Aspie

    Ok, I am in no way an expert. I do not have autism myself but have dated and been around a few who have Aspergers. I am in a relationship with a 19 year old male who has Aspergers. I do not agree with people who say he is suffering. He is a human after all. What traits that sometimes frustrates...

    Never dated

    Hello, I'm 28 and have never dated or been in a relationship. People call me Asexual but I don't know if that is right. I want to date but I have never met anyone that I have had any romantic or intimate attraction to. I have never had a crush or imagined kissing a person. I think it would...

    how do you know when it's time to end it.

    I've been dating a girl for over six months. It seems like our relationship is going no where. I feel disgruntled and I tried talking to her but she just blew my concerns off. I've tried so hard to keep this up. Everything I do goes unappreciated and I sick of going the extra mile just to be...

    Aspies and Dating

    I'm sure a thread such as this has been rehashed several thousand times but I hope to switch it up, make things new (if such a term is possible anymore). First, how many people here have trouble dating? I know I do. My problem is I tend to be too nice and get taken advantage of. And along the...

    My story of dating abuse (sensitive)

    This is the first chapter of a project I was working on called Confessions of A Male Survivor. I ultimately dropped it because, in reality, I know nobody would read or care about this. But I'll try here, as it does involve autism in a few scenarios. I doubt anyone's gonna believe this at all...

    Friend who is on the fence about online dating but wants to try

    Hey guys, I'm trying to understand why or why not someone with asperger's/autism may engage in online dating. To me it seems great to have the option to introduce myself to many people, and easily have an opportunity to figure out if I even like them or not (and vice versa) before meeting with...

    Hello, I'm new to this board and recently just found out about it. Just after trying to deal with a hard breakup with a girl I've known for around half a year. Even though we haven't taken this relationship physical yet, and it's still online, we still tried our best to make it as realistic and...

    Boyfriend fixated on food and exercise

    Geez. It took me forever to figure out how to post a new thread. Okay. Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. I suspect my boyfriend is HFA. He has a good number of ASD traits. One thing I didn't see was a hyper-focus or fixation on a particular subject, UNTIL the other night he...

    Scared to go on first date

    Okay, I think I know what I'm going to do, but I still want some advice and opinions. I had another forum earlier about dating but this one's a little different. Basically, there's this guy I've liked for two years, and we've been good friends for those two years, and we finally decided to go...

    Dating man with ASD traits. When/if to broach the subject?

    I just posted a very long narrative about a specific incident I had recently with my boyfriend of 7 months. I have a hard time describing in words my experience with him. I love him very much. He is kind, caring, and loyal. We have ongoing communication problems,usually that end up with me...
