He has autism. I am honestly torn on what to do. I REALLY like him, but I don't know if we can be in a normal relationship. He's never been with anyone, and I got divorced two years ago. I have a son with an intelluctual disability (MR), and I don't know if I need more.....??stress????? in my life.
He is such a sweetheart. To me, at least. Other people think he is rude and annoying, but I understand his quirks, and I like them in a way. We can have full conversations, he is at the higer spectrum, and he's getting to the point where he knows to ask me how my day was and to listen to me babble for a few moments. I don't know if I should risk our friendship to become more with him.
Any adults with autism? Anyone marry a man/woman with autism? I really need input on this situation.
Thank you so very much!
And he is really good with my son. We've gone to the park together and the movies together. My son knows he is just my friend, and my son likes playing superheros with him and just hanging with him.
So, I said yes. I've known him for over a year and I really do care about him. He was so excited he even hugged me. This was a big thing for him. I know I made the right choice! Thank you for your answers, and I will update sometime. Our first date is on Sunday. Going to Red Lobster. Yum :P
