i'm reading the main book from tony Atwood.
one of the many questions i've is: how simple it to prevent this?

it is in the relationships chapter.

later in this chapter there is a suggestion to use 3 steps strategy when having a relationship... one of them is the willingness to go to a therapy with the non-asperger partner.

so, what are your thoughts on this question? can you manage not to destroy the relationships your partner with his/her friends and other people in their lives?

soon i will start to meet with a new psychologist and i want to work with her on my self esteem. hopefully at some point i will have a relationship.

thank you

I think if the Aspie has his/her own life & can & likes doing his/her own stuff alone for a bit; the NT would be able to socialize while the Aspie is doing his/her own thing. The NT might just not be able to bring friends over to the house if the Aspie is there but the NT can still go out with friends.

Oh, you can't help that, said the Cat: we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.
How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

meeting outside the house is a good idea for the neuro typical.

thank you very much anyway.
