He has a very limited social life but is so wanting to find a girlfriend and has been joining various well known dating agencies online and spending quite a bit of money to do it but he is finding it hard to accept that his aspergers may put people off. I don't want him to feel that he is inferior to other folks , which he isn't , but I really don't think the websites he has been trying are suitable for him. Does anyone know if there are any "asperger friendly" sites that he could look at? Hi there - I have to say that all of the so called normal dating sites seem to attract people who either want just physical contact or are not quite normal themselves lol - whatever that is - I hope your son finds what he is looking for - I have given up for now and am very happy abate a little sad that I could never keep a relationship going - Sylvia. However a, Autism is NOT inferiority!
