Hey ladies, I know plenty of you have been asked this question involving men with Aspergers Syndrome. I couldnt help but get curious and have been appauled with some comments I've come across on various sites such as YouTube and yahoo which involves women judging men with aspergers far too harshly. It is true that some male aspies do have a difficult time with intimacy, but I want to point out that not all of them do. I was in a relationship years ago and despite having aspergers I actually enjoyed my experiences with cuddling and even public affection didn't bother me. Unfortunately I suffered a real bad breakup and haven't been able to move on for years due to the constant rejections on dating sites such as match. com and okcupid. com. Its been over 6 years since I've last dated and I would like to get back out there and have a truly nice relationship with someone that would actually like me for me. I feel that the fact that I have this disability will always get in the way and cause women to judge me negatively and felt my only previous relationship worked because I didn't tell her I have it out of fear of being just outright rejected. So please do not sugar coat any opinions, I only want straight forward opinions. Would any of you women consider dating a guy with aspergers syndrome that actually can handle intimacy?

Just be yourself! That is the best thing. You want to fins someone you are compatible with. For me, I was diagnosed with Aspergers at age 8. I am one of the few females with it. I tell everyone about having aspergers! I think it has given me some of my best qualities and helped mold my personality. All of my bestfriends know I have it and we joke about it a lot. If i don't get the sarcasm they know by my face, Tell me what they mean and we laugh. If you can accept and embrace it others will too! The biggest challenge is being comfy with urself and learning what things u need to compensate for and which u just go with. As for the intimacy thing women like that and no two people with aspergers are the same. It is such an out of the box disorder you cannot compare two people with it. there is just no way. There may be some common qualities but to so many different levels/ variations. If you want u can pm me, I know a lot about aspergers and i enjoy talking about it, i was diagnosed a t a young age and have learned all social/ affective skills to a point where many people dont know i have it unless i tell them. Bottom line embrace who u are!1
