    Hello, I am 20 years old guy with asperger syndrome. I was diagnosed when I was in preschool. My parents are supportive but my father still doesn't accept that I have asperger. He constantly comparing me to people the same age as me. I also have supportive older sister. I had few close friends growing up but along the way they turned to be a big disappointment. Now I have 3 close friends but I don't trust them as much as previous one because I don't want to be disappointed again. My current close friends live in other cities than me. First one is girl I know since childhood because our fathers were neighbors. Next is guy I know because few years ago our mothers became best friends.There is also a girl I met on my cousin's wedding (she is her friend) and we really hit it off but this was short lived. We are friends now and she is awesome. I still have a problem with understanding people because most of them seem to me just deceitful.
    I'm going to university in fall (I had a gap year) but I'm not sure what I want to do in future.
