I live in the United States and it’s common to meet women in church (especially Baptist mega-churches in the South) so you can talk and get involved in youth and service groups to get to know other people. The best part is that she probably wouldn’t mind that you haven’t been in a relationship before. My typical response to that question is “It was God’s timing to set me up with the right person”. People on the spectrum are frequently virgins in their 20s and 30s where society at large sees it as a negative and somehow “immature”. The Christian view, especially Evangelicals, find it a valued trait. Let me know your opinions!
AspieFox posted a topic in Symptoms & DiagnosisHi everyone, Who would be a better partner for an Aspie? A fellow Aspie? Or is it better to be with a Neurotypical? (I currently have a working/provisional diagnosis and have only recently been meeting Aspies online and in real life - I can relate to them much more than NTs, and my previous relationship lasted 8 years with a scientist - so she was very logical and factually orientated and it made life easier, but she was NT...I think). I realise that things are not black and white (although I have a habit of thinking like this) and I realise that each Aspie and NT is different, but on the whole, I am interested in the pros and cons that you have found. Please share your experiences. Thank you!
I have lost a couple of girlfriends, not that i would leave someone, but they left coz they lost interest, i guess they didnt know me that well that perhaps another aspie would, instead of looking at the neurotypical and (excuse my language) sometimes cultural-freaks, so called "normal" girls, an aspie that can relate to the same struggles and more subtle language or way of communicating could work out better? How does that usually manifest itself? Is it less endless smalltalk and preach in self-entitlement and less pressures to be that "picture perfect manhood" and having to meet pain in the ass relatives and go shopping cloths to pick for the girl? Is there problems of to much attachment and jealousy, more or less? Etc? (I might oversimplify but there u go) Can someone relate to the difference?
