Aspies and dating dating cpap
We are so much closer, because we think in the same way. I don’t feel like I’m broken or wrong any more, as he shares all of my ‘oddities’! I wish I had known how easy it is to date someone on the spectrum when I was younger.
My ex has also found a non-autistic girlfriend and is much happier now, so it’s worked out well for us both.
It’s a complex process, requiring the ability to interpret body language and a detailed knowledge of social rules. Although at times it seems like you can never compete with all the neurotypical men/women out there, you are someone’s idea of a perfect partner.
If you’re on the spectrum, looking for love and as confused by the whole process as I am, please know this: You are beautiful in your own way.
(As I mentioned earlier, there are fewer women than men diagnosed with high functioning autism, so unless you’re a heterosexual female or a gay male, seeking out a partner with autism will narrow your dating pool considerably).
Especially if previous relationships haven’t worked out.I felt something was wrong all the time and assumed it was all my fault. I suppose I assumed it wouldn’t be all that different and therefore it wasn’t worth giving up a home and potentially ‘ok’ relationship.I felt constantly guilty that I couldn’t do things ‘right’ and I know my exes felt just as bad. I also come from a small town and didn’t know anyone else with Asperger’s/autism.Near the end of my last relationship I became really depressed and ultimately suicidal from trying to force things to work all the time and knowing that something was missing. I’m sure his ego took a huge battering trying to share a home with me, as we just couldn’t properly connect and had different needs. We had a nice home, got on well with our families, didn’t have big arguments, no one was cheating or doing anything nasty.We stuck it out for ten years and I think ultimately we were too nice to want to accept failure, so we both internalised most things and thought we were terrible people instead of just amicably calling it a day.
