That means you are under no obligation to seek a professional diagnosis or to act on a diagnosis once you have it.There are, however, good reasons to consider seeking a diagnosis, particularly if you feel that Asperger syndrome may be causing problems or distress.
Adults with AS may appear painfully shy or they may be extremely outgoing, sometimes to the point of being "in your face." That's because people with AS often misinterpret social interaction. " Will my behavior be interpreted as friendly interest or stalking?
Questions they may ask themselves might include: How far away do I stand from another person? If these are the types of questions that puzzle you on a regular basis, you may already have considered the possibility that you have AS.

The question has great meaning in American society today, since more than 75 percent of college students report engaging in at least one hookup, 30 percent of which include sex (Paul & Hayes, 2002).
If you grew up with undiagnosed AS, your unusual social interactions may have created friction and even bad feelings.
By sharing your diagnosis, you may open the door to better understanding and closer relationships. GRASP is only one of several large organizations dedicated to supporting teens and adults with AS.
I have had many short and quite a few long term relationships. The only regret from casual encounters is the one and done.
I like the sex, no regret, it is the loss of a potential friendship that I have a little grief over. This is not a reality but the even a delusion can result in negative attitude towards a person.
Most of my lovers are good friends and reciprocate. Biologically speaking, many women are more likely to regret the "one and done" because their hormones are telling their brain that this person is a suitable father of their children. The worst is when you actually have this feeling about the person who is closely affiliated with you. I really don't like to hit & quit, but I feel I have to because all of the women are so sexually active. I don't want to fall for someone and then find out she did all the guys on the Eastern Seaboard while I only have a handful of encounters. The past predicts the future and once a hook-up queen --- always a hook-up queen. I have had my share of hook-ups, when I was in college and now when I am older as well.
And although there is more and more equality between the sexes, I understand that women have more regrets than men. I usually will first research and review sites like on here before I meet someone for a non-committal meet.
The actual overall prevalence of hooking up is likely even higher, since these estimates are limited to college students.
