@ Chucky/Kevin: He told me before we even met that he had Asperger's, so I know he does
He was rather quiet at the restaurant, but VERY polite. As I said, I asked quite a few questions, but he answered them simply, and did not ask any himself. He seemed somewhat shy/reserved, and extremely nervous though as he kept playing with he's keys, picking them up/putting them down, etc. It's nice to know it may just take some time for him to become familiar with me. It's also nice to know another AS guy's date went the similar route
@ Shock the monkey and TNSE: That is really nice to know. When it comes to guys and dates I'm rather shy and inexperienced myself, but if I have to be more outgoing and direct to date him, I most certainly will. Thank you
@Dog of the Gaps: I facebook messaged him saying I had a good time and would like to see him again (appropriate I thought since we have conflicting schedules, it's less pressure than the phone, plus we met on fb), so that way he knows I thought it went well and would like to go on another date with him. He responded that he enjoyed it too, but didn't suggest another date, sooo I'll give him some time and after awhile (week or so) if he doesn't suggest one, I will and see what he says.

Aww, well he's really sweet (though from what I've heard lots of guys with AS are. I've done a little bit of reading and everything says they're sweet, honest, loyal, etc just lacking socially, but I'd personally be okay with that. I'm not one of those girls who likes to go out a lot (Friday night at home with movies is cool with me) plus I don't mind having some me time either away from people
), and I really like him, so I'll learn however much about Asperger's I have to so that I can understand and communicate with him effectively/better
It's really great y'all are willing to help me out here; you guys are awesome
