DEAR DEIDRE: THE more I get to know my boyfriend, the more I think he has Asperger’s or autism and I just can’t cope any longer.
I met him online. He’s a good-looking 46-year-old who runs a small garage. He’s never been married. I’m 43 and separated.
His house was an absolute tip when I moved in. It’s taken me months to clear it up.
I’ve tried to persuade him to have a test for autism but he’s refused. He’ll never change. Should I leave?

DEIDRE SAYS: Asperger’s is on the autism spectrum but your boyfriend must have positive qualities which attracted you in the first place.
Before walking away, read The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome by Maxine Aston, a guide to living in a relationship with an Asperger partner.
Get support through the National Autistic Society (autism.org.uk, 0808 800 4104). If you do stay, tell him that a diagnosis is nothing to be scared of and could help you both enjoy life more.
