Yup, and he's my husband now.
I'm sure you will find a nice young woman some day :) My husband is very high functioning as well, he does struggle a bit as well like in social situations so he found a job to work around that. He's a very talented guitarist, I don't think that's necessarily a autistic thing but his devotion to it seems to be kinda autistic, but i don't mind. Lately I have gotten him into puzzles, he used to be obsessed with lego's but now we do puzzles because they are cheaper and they do fulfill that little urge he gets to build things. Anyway i'm sure you will do fine :)
My husband's obsessive energy is in guitar's and lego's which are unfortunately very expensive obsession's but we are trying to work around that. Strangely enough his autistic traits might have been the reason that we fell in love. We are both pretty socially akward (im not autistic, just shy) we are both obsessed with really cheesy movies, we have a weird sense of humor, we are both pretty laid back, etc. He's also very blunt, he tells people everything no matter how good or bad it is and I love that, he offends some people when he's really brutally honest but I enjoy the fact that he doesn't lie. Most people we know already understand that he may say inappropriate things sometimes so that's not an issue anymore. The one thing that does bother me is that he does struggle to show certain emotions but I know that he loves me, he's very devoted to me and he makes sure I know this every day, he's the best husband a woman can ask for, so I just look past the Autism, it's just a part of life for us now and that's okay.
Probably. You like who you like. I don't really have many criteria. If we click, we click.
Hell, I was married to my Bi-Polar, Schizo, Anti-social behavior wife for 12 years....Autism would be an upgrade....
Besides, I could use the break.
I don't see why not. ;}
I'm getting the feeling that's the only sort of person I could stand to be in a relationship with, being the same myself. I don't know, we'll see won't we? :')
Never say never. Showing affection would probably be challenging for the autistic person; eye-to-eye and wot-not, so who knows? Depends what you're like. For me I love people who can hold their own in conversation without forgetting their point before they finish a sentence. My best mate has Asperger's (is that spelt wrong) who doesn't like meeting new people, but he's a remarkable conversationalist who has a rapier-like ability for picking your point apart. Birds are the same, if they can't string a sentence together then they send me crackers with boredom. Never had an autistic girlfriend, but I wouldn't rule one out either.
