Is any one in a relationship with someone with Aspergers? In the beginning of our relationship he told me he had it and I was confused because I didn’t know what it was , so I asked him and he explained to me that he thinks of things differently. I of course trusted him with what he was telling me and throughout the relationship we have had issues and I did not know at the time that it could possibly be related to Aspergers.
For about a week now I have been watching YouTube videos to see if the problems we are having are actually due to that and some are. I learned that there is an emotional disconnect as well as lack of intimacy and physical intimacy :/. I have joined Facebook groups to hear other stories and it seems like a very lonely relationship because it is one sided for the neurotypical person.
I would consider myself a very emotional person. Very close to my feelings and like to express them and now I understand even if I said “try to put yourself in my shoes, he could not imagine it because his brain doesn’t work that way of understanding someone else’s feelings.
