I met someone on Match who had Aspergers. I'd never heard of it before but I looked it up online and this is what I've found.

Quote:
Children with severe AS do not read social cues well and have little empathy. This is apparent in their clumsy body language, inappropriate facial expression, pedantic monotonic speech, a peculiar "stiff" gaze, and difficulty sensing other’s social space. Their social interactions tend to be one-sided. They have little ability to form friendships and suffer from social isolation.

Though they are rejected by their peers, they deeply desire the same social relationships all of us need. This rejection often leads to depression, anxiety, anger and further withdrawal.

Rather than showing developmentally appropriate interests they tend to fixate on circumscribed topics like weather, facts about TV stations, computers, or maps. This makes them seem eccentric to their peers. This impression of eccentricity is amplified by their odd postures and ill coordinated movements.


The emails seemed normal, but not really deep. Would I be taking advantage of this person? Would her personality really be that limited? Or is this just a mild form of Autism?

From what I know from watching Glee, I heard people with Asperger's will pretty much say anything they want. It's as if they don't have control when it comes to being sensitive to others' feelings when they tell them things. I don't really know; I haven't met anyone with this syndrome.
