I would like to reply to this post as a ‘supposed’ NT with a partner who disclosed their Aspergers to me quite recently, before we were engaged to be married. We are deeply in love and have no doubts that we will work hard to make our relationship the best it can be. I put quotes around NT because I have very recently discovered that I may not be neurotypical. On researching everything I could on Aspergers in order to help my partner and I have a fulfilling relationship, I came across your website and read the article, ‘How are women with Aspergers different, and why does it matter?‘ The article describes my entire life (I am now 46 years old), and to read something that may explain a lot about my internal struggle has been both enlightening and though-provoking. I may or may not be on the spectrum, but the article explains so much about what I have gone through internally throughout each stage of my life.
To get back to your question here…I would like to ask my partner’s permission to convey to you their decision to disclose their Aspergers to me. My partner has trouble having lots of online accounts/passwords, so I could pass on some answers if that would be useful?
