Asperger syndrome dating websites
If you are autistic, you may find it particularly difficult to overcome shyness, follow the dating norms of neurotypicals, and overcome the social stigma of autism.However, with perseverance and practice, anyone can have a successful dating life and find a happy partnership with someone who understand what autism really is and what it is not and knows that everyone is unique.
My patient has progressed quickly in therapy, as do many adults on the spectrum. It took a few sessions to realize this fine gentleman suffered mightly with the symtoms of Asperger Syndrome, which he kept well managed and thoroughly hidden.
After even minor social interactions he routinely found himself exhausted, and would retreat to soothing, isolated activity: sculpture, writing, woodworking. In fact, the only person to suspect he was on the spectrum was his wife, who puzzled endlessly about this curious man. Yet he ignores my birthday and hangs up before saying goodbye.
He's so charming with others, yet so silent at home.
His difficulty managing his thoughts made rudimentary conversations minefields to be navigated.
And navigate he did, dodging social errors with the same fright and determination one might actually dodge mines. He truly did not fit the criteria for Asperger Syndrome.
