I think Elain D hit the nail on the head. I think she "got" the crux of the matter. If I were younger and single, and I were to be set up on a date with a guy like you, I would say, yeah, I want to meet this person first before I can make any judgment (even though from our interaction through Yahoo, I find you to be really interesting, imaginative, of course intelligent and I'm sure a great catch for some lucky woman). I would have to see whether there's physical chemistry too. But knowing a bit about the Syndrome, I know it would take a lot out of me and would be very challenging every day. I am a person who needs to hear things and feel very supported by the man I'm with, I want him to understand me at times without me having to say things, and that's hard enough with guys without Asperger's. But if I know that this would prove difficult, then we can find other ways, verbal approaches to make ourselves understood and have our emotional needs met. It's not impossible. But it takes a certain kind of woman who has the patience and understanding for this to work. And it can as far as I'm concerned.
