My ex said to me on a mutual friend's ask.fm "ALSO, IT'S YOUR OWN f*****g PROBLEM YOUR RELATIONSHIPS NEVER WORK OUT. DICK."

Is she right?

We can't possibly answer that here, but if YOU think it's true, it likely is.

I don't know. It's hard to think of myself in 3rd person.

It all depends...

BUT... if there is a pattern... things ending the same way, people being alienated and complaining about the same behaviors, you may wish to engage in some self examination.

If the behaviors are examples of your aspie-ness, then you may want to adjust your targeting parameters and aim for partners who will be more accepting of these things...

If there is drama associated with the breakups... it is most likely you... a pattern of drama is almost always centered on the person who hates it the most.

If she's the only one to think/say so, it may just be bitter resentment talking.

...but the more people say you're a dick/as*hole/b***h/just-plain-rotten-person, the more likely it may be true.

There's been one person in the past who had the same response. Also her friends hate me too.

It's not really possible to answer this without more information about the relationship and what you were like in it.

What if his problems AREN'T because of his behaviour?

OK that's a good start. In your next relationship, try to be less clingy and give the girl more space. As long as you try to be aware of this tendency and try to resist it, you are doing well. We all have our weaknesses and can only work on them and try to improve ourselves. No one is perfect. And don't expect an instant fix. But with time you can change.

please note the use of the qualifier "if." Also, please note that I used other qualifiers that are not making accusatory statements... "You may", "Most likely", "Almost always."

HOWEVER... based on these statements... IF someone finds things ending the same way... every time... THEN, it is safe to assume that there is one common denominator... HENCE the suggestions on possible plans of attack to eliminate emotional pain in the future.

Forget it, just because a relationship doesn't work out doesn't mean it wasn't a success, you can still gain something and you have grown from the relationship.

Yea I wouldn't worry too much, you seem to acknowledge your errs.... Much of being young is screwing up a hundred times till ya get it right. Really happy that you can get so far as to already having had multiple relationships. (just getting laid does a lot to help boost a young males self-esteem). Lotsa aspie guy struggle to get as far.

Exactly, if I let my asperger's make me miserable, it would never make me feel any smarter! Missed and failed opportunities are just uncomfortable learning experiences, it helps you cope with life in the big scope of things.

Hey Wolfheart, How many pictures of that same pose do you have?
