No one can keep up an act forever.
Have You Seen These 7 Aspergers Dating Tips?
The rules for men and for women are different. If a man has had lots of girl-friends then he might be called a stud or a stallion. This is a compliment. Most men tend to be attracted to women who are good looking, supportive and strong-minded but this may vary from one man to another. This is an insult, however unfair this rule may seem.
Sure, that woman might cook him dinners, perform in bed and tell him how much she likes him, but none of that stuff penetrates as man’s psychology on a deep and meaningful level..

There exists a lack of awareness in interpreting social cues; a skill that most of us take for granted. Given that inability, it can be extremely difficult for the family and friends of an Aspergers family member to cope with many of the behavior patterns typically exhibited. As Aspergers is a relatively recently classified disorder, an adult’s diagnosis with the disorder may occur after the diagnosis of a child or a grandchild.
When this occurs, family members often then relate the behaviors of the newly-diagnosed youngster to that of the lifelong behavior patterns of a parent or spouse.
