Hi Gabriel,

First off, kudos to you!  Never give up and why your psychologist told you that is beyond me!!  As a mother of a daughter with Aspergers, I always worry about her relationships (she's 17 yrs old now).  I see now reason why either of you can't have a completely filling and loving relationship.  After all, it takes the saying goes.  It's a point of finding that "right" person for you.  Relationships are hard work.....for anyone!  When putting together your research, just remember that emotions play a huge part in it.  I would extend your research, though, to include a small group of couples without Autism Spectrum Disorders.  I think you'll find that difficulties still exist on both sides.  Look at the partner who doesn't have ASD to see the patience, compromise and understanding they show toward their partner with ASD.

Maybe, to further the research, show couples where both individuals may have ASD.  I look forward to your findings!! Please, keep in touch.

Subject: [aspergers-81] Research Project

I learned of my Asperger Syndrome when I was twenty-six years old. The first thing my psychologist told me about it was that I might never marry because of it. Ever since, I have been trying to learn how to defy the odds which seem so insurmountable in the case of intimate relationships. For this semester in college, I determined to study this, since this has been my obsession since the psychologist told me how difficult it would be. If possible, I need to find volunteers who have had success in relationships and volunteers with little or no success. My goal is to determine correlating factors which may determine the difference between fulfilling and unfulfilling relationships in Asperger's and High Functioning Autistic individuals. I know many, like myself, may see this as a painful topic, but I hope to be closer to a solution to the problem by the time I finish. Best wishes to you all. - Gabriel Gray
