    I was at this 12½ year wedding day anniversary

    Possible Aspie (can't Get Formally Diagnosed W/o Health Insurance, Y'know)

    I got to this website by typing "I am lonely" into Google search (yeah, dorky, isn't it? but yeah, that's me), but this all started a few months ago when I found out that a family member was diagnosed with Asperger's.  Aha!  That explains so much about a few other...

    Yes, I Have AS, Officially Diagnosed.

    I was diagnosed with AS April 1, 2011, so I haven't been diagnosed for very long. AS has made it VERY hard for me to keep a girlfriend, and I recently nearly lost a woman I loved probably partially because of my condition. Living with this has been difficult because I cannot...

    Dating From An Aspie Perspective.

    I get tired of neurotypicals. There's so many reasons why. Nueortypicals like to learn to get to know others on the fly. Do you know? Like they like situation based learning of other people and to just throw people into a chaotic situation and see how they'll react to get to know...
