How can I tell my friend that I have Asperger Syndrome (a form of autism)?
I'm a paranoid person. I have hardly any friends, and my first attempts led me to being back-stabbed by people who pretended to be my friend only to hurt me. Well, I met this guy a few weeks ago, and I learnt a few things about him, mostly about him getting into fights and the way he works out constantly to be stronger than everybody else. I asked him if he thinks he's superior to everyone and he said he was physically. I told him how I could trust him and that he's the type of guy I'd expect to see in a prison. I said ''what if someone is rude to you? You beat them up? That isn't right.'' Well he ended up explaining why he beat those people up (because they attacked him first). I was against that at first, because I was raised to not retaliate. Anyway I told him I'm really sorry if that just sounded inappropriate and he said 'Nah it's cool.' I said I'll trust him and he said he won't be like those 'friends' that I had. I sent him a message on facebook asking if he'd like to hang out sometime. He said 'oh so youve gone from not trusting me to wanting to hang out lol'. I had a conversation after that about films. He's 18 years old and I'm wondering if I've damaged anything...I have Asperger Syndrome (he doesn't know) and it makes me say some impulsive stuff that I only recognize as inappropriate later onwards.
I'm wondering if I damaged the friendship at all, or if things are cool. hes not good with medical stuff..so he's likely to be clueless what autism is.
