I have a friend that says he doesn’t feel love. I’ve asked if he thought he might be aromatic but he’s unsure but I also know he has Asperger’s and that could contribute to it. I wanted to know if anyone had any insight to what might be going on.

People on the autism spectrum are more likely to be aromantic.

Maybe. But is it scientifically proven? I’d like to see that study…

Cause studies about aromanticism… you can count on one hand…

'Asperger's syndrome' is a harmful, ableist thing and is no more in the use. It was used to categorize autistic persons as 'worse' and 'better' ('low-' and 'highfunctioning' labels are harmful in the same way), also it has direct connection to a very bad person.

Autistic persons see and interpretate things in other way than allistics and the chance that an autistic person is also arospec or in other LGBTQ+ part is higher. Personally I know more neurodivergent persons who are LGBTQ+ than neurodivergent cishet and there are also some who are both autistic and arospec. I'm myself both autistic and aromantic.

If your friend is interested in reading about aromanticism, I recommend to show him the AUREA's site. If he's uninterested, there's no sense to continue the conversation about it.
