Do you have tips? My spouse is high-functioning enough, or I just find it "normal", that I never notice problems until they're already problematic. We have communication issues, where from my SO's perspective I've been told multiple times what they want/think. But I haven't picked up on it at all. A...

Thanks for the answers so far. I think he'll say "no". His actual diagnosis was more than 5 years ago. The supportive services I mentioned were just somebody coming by and checking up on him weekly. He doesn't think that would have been a psychologist or anything. And I can't figure out any way to p...

Huh? AS is actually about to be removed. It has it's own insurance code.

I don't know if you will get penalized on future coverage or not. The health insurance form I'm filling out right now does ask if you've been diagnosed with autism. (See my post on this forum.)

My friend just moved here from another country where he had some supportive living help because he was in school and it fell under "school services". They don't use the DSM there, so he isn't coded under that, but under whatever they use in Europe. I think HFA is the official diagnosis. Anyway, he n...

She sees me in person soon. I sent a picture of cookies and said I'd give something later at the airport... Hmm...

lives in another country actually. So I'm not sure that sending flowers or something would work too well. If I'd thought about it earlier maybe a fluffy stuffed animal.

Looks like you both have major stressful events that just happened to you. Either could lead to short-term depression, etc. So don't downplay the seriousness of things here. That said, the important thing is how you handle it now. How have you best communicated in the past? Use that and some direct ...

There's always craigslist. If you want casual, the NSA section would work.

What do you wish you had known? (Besides that you were an aspie!) What advice would you give to others?

(It seemed like a good idea to ask this in parallel with the other thread I started.)

There. That question should avoid reasons like "tax breaks". How do you know that you are *really* ready? Please stay on topic: Please don't answer "I don't think I'll ever get married" or "never because I'll never meet someone, I'm so lonely". There are plenty of other threads where you can discuss...

This guy asked for a love story, not tales of woe or stalking. Stalking would be something more akin to what I did in middle school. It took college for me to figure out how dating was supposed to work. Fast forward. I'm formally diagnosed with ADD. I decided that my exes all had aspie traits to the...

I am seeing lots of very silly criteria here though. :)

I don't how people can have so many criteria & guidelines - I've never had a clue what I'm looking for. I just go on chemistry, I guess? Mine were "predictors of long-term success". And oh right I forgot chemistry! To remedy that: must be a geek. (And it was stated that this is "perfect" partne...

Post what you get under the units the original study was done in! That goes for all of you... And post how far back you sit/stand. And yes, I physically moved 2m so i could reach my keyboard so i could take the test at 4m. I agree, there's no point comparing numbers taken under different setups, ev...
