    @Scared65 why did you think he was a dick? Is it because of the way he looked or something? I’m just asking because there was this one guy in my class in Gr9 who thought I was a “douche” but I could never figure out what I was doing wrong. I think it’s because of the way I look sometimes, but that 99% of the time has nothing to do with how I feel. Ie/ one time I looked like I wanted to kill someone, apparantly, when I was actually in a good mood. I have Asperger’s, I think, btw.

    Oh, I found this video via searching for “asperger sucks”. It does! It only makes things more complicated aside some strong talents you can have ,which I got plenty of, but this is not worth it… maybe some day everything will work out and I will get to use my talents, who knows.

  3. monkfg says:

    I’m not officially being diagnosed with asperger’s, but everything makes me think i will. Love doesn’t work for me, I tried everything and I’m simply too sensitive. I’m not shy, I’ve got a lot of willpower but that only brings me into situations I can’t handle and I get traumatized very easily.

    I think there are a lot more Aspie females but they go undiagnosed because they exhibit different symptoms, or because those traits are “okay” in a female.

    Aspies are not “Weird” as you call it.
    Aspies are just Different than Normal people.

    @Adkit2 It’s definitely on my to-do list. I’ve been getting closer, trying to loosen up and even been looking for advice from where ever I can find it. I strike up conversations with her whenever possible. Fortunately we share many common interests. My biggest fear is that if she doesn’t feel the same way for me that I do her, then it will become awkward and we won’t be able to go back to being the good friends that we are. Plus I’ve got years of experience with rejection holding me back.

  7. Adkit2 says:

    @TheGoodBadandSexy If you hate it when douches get the girls then maybe you should face your fears and ask that girl out before it’s too late. ;) Don’t let your life turn into one of those movies where you love a girl but she’s married to an asshole and you find out that the asshole is cheating on her but won’t tell her because you don’t want to make her sad and all that, you know those movies?

  8. TheGoodBadandSexy says:

    I have asperger’s, and I have been single my whole life. I’ve been on a total of one date (which didn’t go anywhere at all), and even though there is a girl who I am currently crazy about, I just can’t find it in myself to ask her out, even though we’ve become good friends and I’ve been trying for over a year. It doesn’t really help that I grew up in a small town, either. I’ve been told that I’m a gentleman, and that I’m a handsome, good-looking guy.

    And I hate it when douches get the girls.

  9. Sparrowrose says:

    I’m a female with asperger’s and I have had lots of problems with relationships because my social naivete made me more vulnerable to predators and abusive men. I prefer guys who are gentle, quiet, very intellectual – these guys are harder to find because the loud rude guys are always getting in the way and trying to get the girls before they can meet the nice, smart, kind guys who are usually back in the corner, hard to find. It’s wonderful when I can get past those jerks and meet a nice guy.

  10. Buizel88 says:

    i have high-functioning autism, which is sort of like aspergers, and i have never attracted anyone for the right reasons. i’m vulnerable to sexual predators. most of the time, guys just want to be friends with me, and it’s very frustrating.

  11. Adkit2 says:

    @Sedines Personally I’d ONLY approach a girl if she had “fuck off” written on her forehead. Those girls look interesting and like they actually have some form of backbone, compared to the other, blank-faced girls that just sit there with a fake smile in order to get as many males as they can. Ok, that was a bit angsty but you get my point. :P

    People who “get it” are few but you’re better off finding one of them than someone who doesn’t.

  12. Sedines says:

    Since you asked at the end of this video, I am female and I have a very hard time. I can get approached but very little after that, which often leaves me confused. I really wish I knew a guy with Asperger’s syndrome around here. Maybe he would get me better, whether I really have Asperger’s myself or not.

  13. Sedines says:

    I have been told I was sad or angry so many times! I’ve even had family members say I look so sad or angry when I felt nothing of the sort. I’ve also had a friend tell me guys don’t approach me because I have “F&^% OFF!” written on my forehead. I have never understood this because I think my face is totally normal. But apparently I am different from most people because people cannot read me at all.

  14. Adkit2 says:

    @Valthecatlover Well, the guy is supposed to be the one starting the conversation if you’re out “hunting” for girls. But yeah, in any other situation I can agree that the girl is the one to start talking about things. Guys just don’t want to look vulnerable, I guess. Not me though, I just open my mouth and let the whackyness fly out. x.x

  15. Valthecatlover says:

    LOL! I think I have Asperger’s undiagnosed, I think it’s even harder for females cause we’re supposed to be the conversation starters! Honestly I would prefer to be w/ a guy that likes to talk more than me! I like listening more than talking.

  16. DaithiDublin says:

    That is really well presented. Do you follow a script for that or are you being prompted in your headphones? (that cutaway is hilarious!)
    I roll the same way, but I’ve been rolling for a lot longer and I seem to be less concerned about trying as I get older. Nah, who am I kidding?!!! My brain may be wired differently but it’s still working just like the next guy’s. It’s functioning correctly but behaving incorrectly. I really respect your honesty. Thanks for the post (and good flying also)

    @Euterpe001 People don’t want electric cars because they’ll get funny looks. People want cars that are in fashion and non-special. Some people want cars that are OVERLY standard and simply use MORE gas than a “normal” car. But only a select few think logically and say “you know what? an electric car is better for me, it’s a lot healthier and will make me feel good.”

  18. Adkit2 says:

    @Euterpe001 Hah, that’s a good one. I think I’ll try that the next time someone tells me I look sad. :)

  19. Euterpe001 says:

    My ex and I just broke up two days ago. He had some major issues (so it’s better we’re not together) but he also didn’t understand me that well. I tried to explain myself and why I act certain ways but he just didn’t get it. It seems to be that MOST people really don’t want to understand anything that is different from them. They want relationships to be easy and having a relationship with someone who isn’t ‘typical’ isn’t easy…

  20. Euterpe001 says:

    I’ma female and I think I have mild aspergers. I’ve done tests and although I didn’t score high I did score in the lower ranges.. “Why are you looking sad?” I get that ALL the time. I don’t think I look sad. Maybe just ‘expressionless’ I also hear ‘You should smile!’ So I guess people think if you’re not constantly smiling you’re unhappy? So I tell them ‘Ok MAKE me smile. Do or say something funny’. But they never have anything. Expecting a reaction without effort? Geesh…

  21. Devik666 says:

    not sure i agree with u in one sense 1 step ahead of me as i dont rember having a proper gf and im kinder offended how u stereotype people to look act or even think a certain way that is a pretty old fashion way of lookin at it if u saw me u might think i look like douche bag but apearances can be decieving i was diagnosed 8 years ago as an aspie so maybe im a shy douche bag or a unique aspie or even a unique person

  22. seraphimon09 says:

    I am 21 years old aspie boy and I have never been into a relation ship too. It is so freakin hard to find the right guy who understand what you have …… . XC

  23. Scared65 says:

    theres this one guy in my class who i use to think was a complete dick/weirdo had no life was well a freak… but now i feel bad about everything i said to him because it turns out he had AS i talked to him for abit and got to know him and get over the annoying awkward side of him and figured out his really smart his very interesting and well… alot more interesting than most the other douches in my class :) thanks man :)

  24. bs395 says:

    my gf works with special ed children.
    we get along just fine.
    i think there is some casual link between her occupation and our relationship.

  25. quackstar84 says:

    Women are scared of being rejected… that’s why then don’t tend to ask for phone numbers.
