Seventeen months ago, I met a man who captivated my attention. He was English, he was witty, he was amazing, and I knew from the moment we first spoke that I had met the man with whom I would spend the rest of my life, and I still feel that way. I knew from the beginning that he was an aspie, as he was very open about it, and I promised him that his asperger's wouldn't come between us or change how I felt about him. However, as time went on, I have found myself lost trying to understand not only how he views the world, but how to get him to see my point of view. Fore example, he doesn't see anything wrong with going fore weeks or months without sending me so much as an email, as circumstances have forced us to temporarily live apart, but I feel much better when there is regular communication. He says that his job is overloading and that he doesn't always feel like communicating. Also, sometimes, he will simply ignore a question of mine, just as he sometimes did in person, simply sitting there not answering me, which of course makes me angry enough to want to scream. I love this man more than life itself, but I feel lost, and I am in desperate need of help and support. I can't do this on my own anymore. I have found personal stability through my faith and friends, but I need navigators through the confusing world of Asperger's. I've tried, and I've reached the end of what I can do on my own, so please, someone help me before my lack of understanding causes a serious problem in my relationship. My love has been extremely patient with me, but I'm afraid that if I don't get some help, one day even his extensive patience will run out.
