    I'm a 24-year old straight male, struggling with Asperger's. I have never had any romantic relationships before. I haven't even kissed a girl. I will begin my masters this fall.

    Is there any hope that I can get together with a girl of my age?

    Yes there is hope.

    Be proud that you're doing a masters! That is a fantastic achievement in itself. I'm sure you are a great guy with many amazing qualities. Let this be your confidence.

    Try online dating, speed dating, joining clubs out of interest, meeting women through hobbies, through your network, through education, through online meet ups and approaching women.

    Good luck

    Got my first relationship at 23 so it's possible. It's really down to you putting yourself out there such as joining clubs, attending meetups and signing up for dating websites.

    Yes you do. Honestly most people find their future partner well into their 26 to 28 and even past 30! Don't listen to what other people say, you are only 24, you're still so young and you may just come across someone when you study your masters (btw congrats on that), you just gotta put yourself out there and be more open and social, but yeah you are good, be patient and the right person will cross your path and you'll be happy you waited for it to happen

    Thanks! I've started to do all of these, but just recently, as this whole thing began to worry me seriously only about six months ago. I haven't been very successful with it so far. Do you think this can change?

    Of course it can. You haven't really missed much, at your age more people are starting to find long-term relationships so you're in a good position.

    Yes.

    Just follow the advice in my post and build your confidence by talking to women consistently, going to the gym, doing things that make you happy, being proud of yourself and achieving.

    Know that you deserve someone you like because you are a good person and you deserve to be happy.
