If none of the above, pick the best fit and explain below.

I've been married and divorced once. I have no children, but I have a grandson, my wife's son's son.

I have never been in love, but I have an "almost girlfriend" right now.

I have never had a regular girlfriend.

Yeah, it's a good one. I want to see some demographic stats of a more developmental nature. Where are you in life kinda thing. So many young people seem to feel discouraged because they think it's always going to be like "this."

Never been in love, but I got a while to go yet, seeing how I'm 14. All NTs my age are already getting boyfriends and girlfriends and "going out" with each other.

Anyone who has read a few of my posts (Yes, I'm flattering myself and it keeps me going at times) knows I have 2 kids and a wife, because I mention them constantly, even at inappropriate times. Sorry to be so annoying.

I voted "married w/children", because it is true. BUT I wonder if you had placed a category in the poll such as "I'm not capable of love" that it would be more truthful, still. I have read a lot about male/female relationships and parenting, but I don't really believe it applies to me. Of course I have an emotional attachment to comfortable things, animals, people, familiar surroundings and favorite memories, but I doubt that anyone would really call it love, given my emotional distance from them at times.

I'm pretty sure I don't really love anything, even though I use "I love ..." often. I probably use it often enough that it has no real meaning anymore. I can certainly imitate a caring parent, or a devoted husband to some degree, but is that really who I am? Of course I protect, teach and enjoy my kids, cherish my wife because they are part of me, but so are my arms. I protect them, too, I would miss them if they were gone, I'm sure I would cry if I lost my arms, but I don't feel like I love my arms, they're just part of me. I always expect them to be part of me, I've gotten used to my arms being there when I need them and folding conveiniently out of the way when I'm not needing them at the moment, but I don't think it's love that I feel for my arms. I DO believe that sometimes I treat my so called loved ones as if they were extensions of my arms.

How can I possibly think of myself as a creature capable of love? I have read that the expression of love is only recognizable in reflection of the past and what we do during the present is not an accurate indicator of whether we actually "love" or not. To me that just sounds like another aspie justification for bad behavior.

None of the above are strictly true for me. I have at least been capable of having the online relationship experience, and therefore cannot say I've never been in love.
