Dating with Aspergers: When Honesty Goes Too Far 🤔
Dating can be tough, but even tougher when you have Aspergers. Aspergers is a high functioning form of autism that can make it difficult to interact with others. One woman recounts how her brother with Aspergers has been struggling to find a date. While his intentions may be good, his honesty often comes across as demeaning and borderline sexist, causing many women to walk out on him. But is it really his fault? His family's constant coddling and his belief that he is smarter than others, especially women, has not helped his case. When his sister finally told him the truth about his behavior, he was hurt and complained to their parents. But was she really in the wrong for speaking up? Join us as we explore the complexities of dating with Aspergers and the delicate balance between honesty and hurtful behavior. Stay tuned for comments and reactions.
