    Thank you. I now have a better understanding about my AS partner’s behavior. Now I have to make a decision.

      I left my partner and father of our toddler last July and I am still having major issues with him as he does not deal with us splitting up and has made my life hard even now. 7 years of mental torture and feeling very alone throughout,now after a few people that I know who work with mental health have told me he has all the symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome and I have to say I always felt that there was something not right and now I feel I can put a name to it I would like him to know and maybe get some help.. As I am in limbo as he will not let me move on..he is very him him him and shows no emotion or empathy affection the list goes on!! I just need to know what to do for the best as I am mentally exhausted 😩 and I thought leaving him would be easy and for the best.

    Thank you for the excellent table. It sums up to a tee the relationship I had with my AS ex-husband. The problems all too apparent following our marriage when all attempts at real communication proved to be fruitless. I bailed after only a matter of months, but even so was deeply traumatised. I hope all NT people can be made aware beforehand of the extraordinary difficulties that define a relationship with someone on the spectrum.

    I am reading your comments and I can so empathize…I am finishing a divorce with a man and this relationship has been traumatizing from the moment the ring was put on my finger. It was isolating, intimidating, I felt worthless, hopeless, used, manipulated, unseen, unheard, unappreciated. Now I worry about our children which he demanded 50% custody, and told me he was fully willing to lie in court to ensure this, because they are “50% his DNA.”

    I’m at the point now where I’m ready to divorce this man. I have to for my and my children’s sake. Even now, in the face of losing us, he seems to be living in a different world. In response to my saying I can’t live with this kind of stress anymore, my health is failing, he texted me and said, “You make up sh*t. Over and over. One day to the next….Stress from what? You just love to have stress.” Either he’s pretending not to understand or he’s totally clueless. I think he reinvents the truth and that is what he believes.
