    I constantly wonder about what I can do to better communicate with my Aspie Boyfriend. I constant wonder why he doesnt seem to get why something upset me. Or why he feels the need to explain the noises different engines make or why he likes watching this particular guy on youtube...

    I have Aspergers, and am not dating anyone.

    I just wanted to say a heartfelt thanks to all those women and men who express such love and appreciation for those with Aspergers they are dating/married to/even broken up with. It moved me because despite being 22, good-looking, and having a good-natured predisposition, I felt...
