    Dating and relationships

    Anyone else totally failed in this ? I think maybe I could only have a relationship with a woman who has ASD. But I have no options on that. I'm in a complicated situation at the moment.

    Completely lost.

    I'm not sure what to do anymore. :( I'm so confused and lost. I'm so depressed that all I can do is just lay in bed, drowned in my thoughts. And no matter how hard I convince myself to do something else, I just can't. I feel so aggressive and distressed at the same time. I'm having these...
