Okay, so many people right off are going to say any “Reason to Love an Aspie” are generalizations and these aren’t true of everybody with Aspergers Syndrome.They say, (and with good reason,) “If you’ve met one person with Aspergers, you’ve met one person with Aspergers.” But there are generalizations you can make about why to love an Aspie, and like all generalizations, of course they won’t hold true for everybody.
A lot of Neuro-Typicals (NT’s) have an ambivalent relationship with the truth.
We like the truth if it is good news or flattering. If you don’t want to hear the truth, the blunt truth, don’t ask them.
Say “I want you to tell me you love me at least three times every day. Refinements, of course, are necessary, but would make up a much larger post.
I’ll get to writing another specific post on this topic of lying and truth telling. The readers are very helpful in teasing out the nuance. Juggling two is just ridiculous, from an AS point of view.
Does this mean that no AS ever had a sexual affair? Loyalty is really an under-acknowledged virtue and good reason to love an Aspie.
No, but by and large, having to deal with people, especially intimately, takes a lot of work for an AS. If an AS falls in love with you, they will remain as steadfast and true as any canine companion (no insult intended).
