When Your Man Is on the Spectrum
Could your partner be on the autism spectrum?
Many women cope with indescribable hardship, communication lapses and severe emotional deprivation in their romantic relationships, without even suspecting that their partner might be on the autism spectrum. Others realize this was the issue all along only after years of living with self-doubt, confusion, and the feeling of having lost their sanity.
In this book you will discover:
- Why most adults with high-functioning autism are not diagnosed.
- How autistic traits are expressed in a romantic relationship while going unnoticed by others outside of it.
- What experiences women in neurodiverse relationships share in common.
