Tips for Being in a Relationship With a Man Who Has Asperger's or Autism

By Rheyanne Weaver HERWriter
 
Rate This

Being involved in a successful romantic relationship can be difficult for most people. Consider all the breakup self-help books available, the movies portraying cheating significant others, constant fighting and dramatic breakups, and your own relationship history.

Do you think these difficulties increase or decrease for someone with a mental disorder? Let’s just say that it’s not easy to have a relationship while trying to function “normally” in the world.

For people who have Asperger’s disorder or autistic disorder, social interaction is complicated. Although people with Asperger’s are thought to have high-functioning autism, they still have social problems. For example, people with Asperger’s don’t contribute as much socially and emotionally, and they don’t know how to use nonverbal behaviors as well, like eye contact, according to an abnormal psychology textbook.

Interaction and emotional reciprocity are important in relationships, so it’s no wonder that it would be a challenge for someone with Asperger’s or autism to be in a relationship. Although this doesn’t happen for everyone, it’s a stereotype that someone with these disorders will not share his or her emotions as frequently. For example, they might not say “I love you” or show affection as often, because they don’t understand and express emotions as well as the typical person.

If you decide to be in a relationship with someone who has Asperger’s or autism, it seems there are some things you have to consider to help the relationship work. Keep in mind, this may not apply to everyone who has Asperger’s or autism. There is the proposed autism spectrum disorder, which places autism and Asperger’s together. Basic symptoms will be the same, but specifics may differ.

This is what I have observed after being in a short relationship with someone who thought he had Asperger’s and through reading different articles:

1) Don’t assume the other person is uninterested, just because he isn’t telling you he likes you or finds you attractive. Decide what you think of him and let him know.

I have not seen anything that is so perfect like DR.EKPEN TEMPLE spell, I have always live a life of a happy man but when my lover left me then everything about me changed, This was because i loved her so much and at times she was always part of my daily life. I was in pains for some days till i came across DR.EKPEN TEMPLE confidential details which lead me in contacting DR.EKPEN TEMPLE and through his help my lover who left me came back to me and right now she is now more interested in me than before. These are one of the things you intend to benefit when you contact DR.EKPEN TEMPLE through these following details ekpentemple@gmail.com or you can call +2347050270218

I want to say few thanks to Dr Gboco, for the wonderful work he did for me last week, my husband ask for a divorce letter because of the little misunderstanding we heard in the past few month, And also i never wanted this because all our investment was a joint business and i don't have to be far away from my family and my two lovely kids. My friend told me about Dr Gboco Email: gbocotemple@yahoo.com and how he also help him so i have to contact him because i want to stop my husband from completing the divorce letter and i want to keep my family together and after contacting him, i was told what i needed to do and when i was going to start seeing the result and after which my husband call me and start asking for my forgiveness and it was all like a dream to me and we are all living happily together again all thanks to Dr Gboco.

hello every body my name is Jennifer Wayne I just want to share my experience with the world on how Dr ojo help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3years with 1kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kid are happy too and we are expecting our second child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience because I strongly believe some ojokunlovespell@gmail.com one out there need’s it… You can email him through his ojokunlovespell@gmail.com
ojokunlovespell@gmail.com .is his contact address.

*I want to give a special thanks to the Spell caster that helped me got my
partner back. Early this year, Myself and my Partner started having some
issues and left me and the kids even when i loved my partner so much. I was
frustrated to the extent that i started looking for links on the internet
on how to get my partner back. One day i came across a testimony in which a
lady was testifying of how this Dr Okedi helped her get her man back i was
able to contact this Dr, i told him all my problem and also told him that i
wanted my partner to come back to me, exactly just as i wanted my partner
is back to me and we are living happily again, Dr Okedi helped me put
everything in order and my Partner came back to me just as i wanted. this

I'm now married to the father of my two kids who i love so much.Before all these sudden happiness took place in my life i went through hell.I dated my fiance for 8years with little breakup's between until a whore came into our life who was my best friend.When i discovered my fiance was cheating on me with her i was so mad at him that i could not even look at him anymore.As time went on i and my fiance was trying to fix things but my best friend wanted us to be apart from each other in other to have him to herself which she later achieved.Soon my fiance wasn't paying attention to me anymore.All he could think of was how he could dump me and his two beautiful kids in other to be with my best friend.I was so heart broken because i loved him so much i tried all means to get him back but it wasn't possible.After a long while of unhappiness i meant a spell caster on-line whose name is dr jatto i explained my problem to him and he demanded for some materials to prepare a spell and i proved the materials and since then my life has been transformed from sadness to total happiness.If you have a similar problem he might be the right person to solve your problem so if you need help contact him via drjattospellhome@gmail.com all your problem will be solve.
