What if it turns out the biggest reason you get along with the 24 year old is because he is approximately in the same stage of maturity that you are?
Yes, cautions of dating oneself should not be taken lightly. Email is good, but give yourself your phone number only if you feel comfortable.Much neurotypical chatter takes place about the Asperger who is known to date him or herself.Someone once said “Love Thyself.” This motto is good for anyone to live by, but Asperger people take the advice one step further: Love thyself and date thyself. Since they enjoy solitude so much, it’s no surprise they often choose to go solo during many social activities.How would you describe a person who dates themselves? Unlike neurotypicals, they freely partake in movie outings, dinners, museum visits, concerts, you name it, and without worrying about having someone to accompany them. Aspies find nothing odd about this practice and are quite surprised to learn neurotypicals have completely different viewpoints.” The older the Asperger person gets, the more she learns just how ridiculous this neurotypical rule applies to “the others,” from shopping to sports games to relieving oneself in the lavatory.
As a result, the Aspie vows to live life even fuller by themselves, trying their hardest never to miss any fun because everyone else’s calendar is full, no one else likes similar types of movies, or no one else at the dinner table has the urge to tinkle.
Maybe he is exactly the perfect guy for you, and will remain so.
But you both need to know that every 18 year old changes a LOT between 18 and 24. Just don’t let the relationship keep you from school or career.
The details of this question are: Didn't date in high school but now found an interesting man/boy, it may get serious.
This may sound cliché, but I am mature and have planned my life well.
Their relationship is great, but it is hard on her now in her 60’s, and he in his lat 80’s, because of his health. I was living with a 50 year old, I was running a small project for the Olympics, I was the second person in a two person business operation. Oh, you might feel like you don’t mature quite as much in the next as in the last five years, and that will be true in the sense that in the last five years you hit puberty.
