i've had a number of women friends and, by and large, if you're not a prospecitve suitor, they soon loose interest in you. in that respect there isn't actually much difference between the sexes. it's just that women are perhaps less obvious about their motives than men.

try a few 'grass hoppers' (TBBT ref here)!!!
fadedface wrote:What gets me though is that women with Asperger's syndrome will have more opportunity to have a relationship than a man with Asperger's because men are always competing for women and even if the woman has no social skills there is still a chance she will be approached by males.
perhaps. perhaps not. there are plenty of other factors. for example, women are expected by men to be attractive and demure too. and women also go for men that are wealthy, irrespective of their attractiveness or social skills. it's by no means as simple as you suggest.

again: perhaps. perhaps not. not all women are passive and not all women like the 'alpha male' type either.

if you do nothing about this, you could well be right!!! and who ever said life was fair. i knew someone who had a first class joint homours degree, had a very well paid job working for a large international company ... and got killed in a car crash in their mid 20s. by comparison, i doubt you have much to really complain about.
