While a young adult with classic autism may appear content with a solitary “monastic” lifestyle, this is often not the case with young adults who have Asperger’s syndrome or high-functioning autism.Clinical experience has identified that the majority of such adolescents and young adults would like a romantic relationship.
They also can have an extreme sensitivity to particular sensory experiences.
All of these diagnostic characteristics will affect relationship skills throughout childhood, and will eventually limit an adult’s ability to achieve a long-term successful relationship.
To achieve a successful relationship, a person also needs to understand and respect him- or herself.
Adolescents with Asperger’s syndrome also are gullible and vulnerable to being given misinformation on relationships by fellow teenagers.
This can include instances of being deceived and “set up.” For example, a teenager with Asperger’s syndrome was lonely and longing for a girlfriend.
