Asperger’s in a relationship

It's certainly ok to ask. There's a section "Love, Relationships, and Dating" for it.
Maybe you'll get good, relevant, actionable advice, maybe not :)

My personal observations:

NT's don't pay attention. Most want to pick and choose answers that suit their personal norms, which is a contradiction: they ask for non-NT insights, but then filter out all the insights because they're not NT-centric /lol.

It's possible NDs pay attention, but they rarely provide feedback. I suspect it's our version of the point above. If someone with experience tells an ND how to interact with an NT, this implies their being able to learn & understand the NT perspective on their particular problem ... but a lack of understanding is likely to be the root cause of the problem.

Of late I've switched to providing "scripts" for progressing questions that interest me, but as far as I can tell nobody has acted on any of them /lol.
