For those not familiar with AS, it is a mild autistic spectrum disorder, where those afflicted can lead ‘normal’ lives, but behave in a way that is rigid and lacking in sensitivity, living up to male stereotyping – in spades.It’s no surprise then that men account for 90 per cent of AS diagnoses.You think it would be really fun to have sex with me.Because, I think you can tell from my posts, I'll do anything.Don't mourn for us Life as a woman on the autism spectrum An adult aspie answers questions from parents If I knew then what I know now Fighting resentment against a non-autistic world Hope and positive thinking What does being different mean?Stigma, depression and Asperger's syndrome Tips for parents from an adult with Asperger's Friendships, general relationships and Asperger's Speak the truth or act the diplomat?At its heart, “Aspie Seeks Love” is a parable about loneliness — a condition which afflicts everyone at some point in their lives and for far too many proves incurable. Matthews, the titular Aspie, spends the bulk of the film trying to avoid.
A simple example of this deficit is answering the question, “How are you? If you don't learn the rules for navigating, life gets boring and repetitive.So I’ve spent my life teaching myself the rules for what to do in each social situation. Surround yourself with people who can effectively guide you through rules. And me, the aspiring professional beach volleyball player. He was on the phones, picking up orders, and I'd stand in the British Pound pit, flashing hand signals to him to tell him what was bid and offer. He would not go down on me, so I started writing obsessively about his not going down on me. But then he saw that I don't know left and right, really, and my math skills end, largely, at third grade, and I am an idiot savant when it comes to memorizing statistics about Gen Y tendencies at work. And he has learned that the only way to get me uncurled is to talk to me. He says what he's doing with his hands, what he is feeling, what we will do, what I have done, he tries to stick to facts. And he does not expect me to move or speak, until I've heard enough verbal cues to get back in the game.I study people, make notes for myself, and then test the notes to see what other situations my notes apply to. I tried, and then we both agreed that I couldn't. She spent the whole evening talking about how smart I am and how many books I've read and how strong I am. He'd flash back a hand signal like, buy ten at twenty. To get rid of him, I told him I was a lesbian and I only wanted to date him if there could be another woman there, too. Notice how there's one theme here: I have no idea how other people think about sex. Do not get obsessively sidetracked by things that do not require social interaction. Like the time he told me he couldn't do it because he had a toothache. Just tell me you want to have sex.” So a day went by, and he did that. Sometimes, when the farmer was dumping me, and people were saying, how can you stick with him?Adults with autism, Asperger's syndrome or PDD-NOS, will be affected by what is often called the triad of impairments.This means that problems will be experienced to varying degrees with social communication, social understanding and imagination.
