Are most guys with Asperger's shy?

I used to be unaware of my diagnosis, but in the past year when I found out, I've been trying very hard to avoid the stereotype of Asperger's, so many people see me as a push-over since I let them:

-Interrupt my sentence when they hear something interesting. (Me: "So I'm thinking of doing crossfit and.." Girl: "Wait, my sister has the same exercise routine..." It keeps on going with her.)

-Over-compliment people so they don't see me as cold and eccentric.

-Shy when it comes to gossip and sex jokes since I don't want to offend people like I many autistics do.

  • It just depends on the person. My brother is super shy, but there was a kid I used to babysit and he was not shy at all XD Like he was more than ready to talk about anything and everything. At least when he was 12 XD

  • (this is tinkerbell) not necessarily. you should just be yourself though, dont make it obvious that you're acting a specific way, just be you and people that enjoy hanging out with you will still enjoy hanging out with you.

  • No clue. I guess you just have to live with it.
