Asperger men dating

Over the course of our relationship the main issues we have are with affection.I am very physically affectionate and that is how I perceive love to be expressed.I have never met anyone like my boyfriend, it was that fact that drew me to him, I love unusual characters and he is so charming and weird and I grew to love his weird quirks very quickly.We have been dating for around a year and a half now and we have had many a stumbling block with communication.I keep wondering if I should tell him I think he has ASD or if it is something that doesn’t need to be expressed.If I told him, I don’t think he’d believe me and it would cause a great deal of upset, and maybe it would only highlight his social issues to himself and make him insecure.

He’s very all or nothing with his work and hobbies. He is incredibly rational and opinionated, it’s his way or the highway most of the time.Now we have a sort of routine affection, ie always kissing goodbye before work and snuggling in bed.Since I discovered ASD I have been so much more forgiving of his behaviour.He hasn't had the time to learn focus and restraint." Having 3 seizures between 3 and 5 years old didn't help anything either.

Around the age of 13 or so I get enrolled in a test program at VCU in Richmond.

My family didn't know what was wrong, but was certain something wasn't quite right early on.
