Guardian452 Posted January 29, 2018 Share Posted January 29, 2018 A little bit of background first: For the past seven months, I've been dating this really funny, nice, friendly, and amazing girl. We get on well, our views align on most things, we have similar interests, we're both vegetarians, and we both enjoy spending time together. As well as this, I have Asperger's Syndrome, which means I can be pretty awkward sometimes. While I fear this sometimes scares people away, she loves my awkwardness and once described it as 'endearing'. Now, we're happy together, however the one issue we seem to have is that I can't always tell whether or not she's joking. This is related to my Asperger's since I struggle to read other people, so don't pick up on certain social queues like the tone of someone's voice (I'm fine when it comes to sarcasm most the time, but for some reason it's not the same when it comes to jokes etc). It wasn't too much of an issue until recently when she said that she'll say a joke but I won't know if it's a joke or not, and I won't give anything back. She did say that she loves me and she is happy with me asides from this though. I admittedly don't have much experience with relationships (before this, only one of my relationships if you can call them that has lasted more than four months, and I was single for about 4 and a half years before I started dating my current partner), but I know that I truly love this girl, and am willing to do what it takes to make this work. I really want to work on this, but I'm not sure what to do asides from picking up on when she makes a joke and coming up with an appropriate response. Is there any chance I can pull this off? Any advice would be greatly appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
