Asperger dating online

Many neuro typical spouses recount their unhappiness when their partner does not want to kiss or be caressed, and they then suffer the AS-partner’s rejection of physical and emotional intimacy.

This also applies to the part of the relationship that includes sex and romance: very often there is no sexual relationship at all; or the NT-partner feels as if she is the Mom of the partner, who behaves like an immature child in an adult’s body; or the female with Asperger’s in the relationship can become asexual, as soon as a child is born; or the middle-aged male-partner with Asperger’s (ASD) and a good academic career can’t understand why it is wrong to expose his private parts in public areas, if he feels like it.

These are some of the confusing scenarios which arise regularly in NT/ASD marriages.

Many NT-AS marriages seem to quickly become celibate.

In her research on sex in NT-AS relationships Maxine Aston found that fifty per cent of the couples reported, that there was no sexual activity within their relationship.

If the relationship also contains heartbreaking secrets and deprivation, then it is harder to mention it to anyone else.

The reality of an NT-AS relationship is that there will be many idiosyncrasies.

She is completely uninterested in intimacy and physical sex. Her passivity makes me feel like a criminal, if I try to reach her and touch her.

She did not reveal that trait before our son was born.

This topic is not easy to talk about for neurotypical (NT) spouses of an adult with Asperger’s Syndrome/ autism (ASD).

Their intimate life with their loved one in marriage is private.

This article focuses on the situation for the normally (NT) functioning spouse.
