What's it like to "be in love" for someone with Asperger syndrome?
Just wondering whether the subjective experience of “being in love” is markedly different for aspies. Wikipedia says that “Individuals with AS experience difficulties in basic elements of social interaction, which may include a failure to develop friendships or to seek shared enjoyments or achievements with others (for example, showing others objects of interest), a lack of social or emotional reciprocity, and impaired nonverbal behaviors in areas such as eye contact, facial expression, posture, and gesture.” That all seems pretty elemental to the experience of romantic love. But aspies can and do form powerful relationships, right?
Does anyone have some personal insight into this?
