When you’re looking for friends there’s something to be said for Asperger’s

I had a long talk today with my daughter about friendships, trusting relationships, commitments, partnerships, fidelity, honesty, and love. She asked me if she’ll ever be able to find someone who will love her, not go with someone else, be ok if she doesn’t want to have kids, and be honest with her. I said yes, there are people like that and that if, when she’s ready, that’s what she’s looking for I’m sure she will find it, but that she should keep in mind that one of the best qualities of Asperger’s syndrome is loyalty and honesty so if she wants someone with integrity, basic values, similar interests and a sense of commitment she might look for someone a lot like herself.
