Hi, I am new to online forums generally, but am hoping for some useful pointers. I am the mother of a 24 year old son with Aspergers. My son is desperate "to find a girlfriend" and it breaks my heart when he raises this subject. I don't know how to help him. I have taken him to many local special needs youth clubs over the years which have been life-enhancing in so many ways but often those attending are less able than my son and thus there is no prospect of linking up with anyone he can go out and about with. He is kind and gentle, able to get himself about locally (SE London) on public transport, has a great sense of humour and is keen to partake in normal social activities with friends, ie cinema, pub, eating out etc. He has a keen interest in rugby (watching, rather than playing!). I cannot believe there are not other people (ladies included) on the spectrum, in a similar situation. Any thoughts/pointers/details of relevant websites would be much appreciated.
