I recently received this email, and not having Asperger Syndrome I can only suggest that the writer take a look at some of the books and forums dedicated to relationships and autism. Of course, I can also point to examples of adults on the spectrum with terrific relationships, as well as adults who are happily unpartnered.
I'm guessing, though, that many of you can offer much more useful advice based on personal experience.
Recently, I have accepted and loved myself unconditionally (a good thing), after being diagnosed with both Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity and Asperger's (a form of autism). I am interested in meeting others, and hopefully something will pan out and might become more than friendship down the road. Given that I will be new to the dating scene after going through what I have, what recommendations would people have for me? I have no desire to rush into a relationship. However, I am very content and happy being where I am in in my life. I am concerned I will be so content and happy that I'll overlook the possibility of wanting to be involved in a relationship and such. Is this normal? If it is not normal, how can I move forward to normalize things in my life?What would you recommend to this writer? Thanks in advance for your help!
