He is really good looking, funny, shows interest in learning more about me sadly uncommon! Physically, he is moving much slower than I would prefer. He stares at me a lot when we are together and it makes me feel uncomfortable, like he is waiting to kiss me instead of enjoying time hanging out together. We already had a talk about where things are going, and I told him his nervousness was making me feel uncomfortable and I wanted him to relax. He brings up his awkwardness quite frequently. The real problem is that all this talk about being awkward makes me feel extremely angry and panicked. Why am I so angry? How can I make him stop? Is our relationship doomed?

Although he genuinely loves his spouse, the Aspie does not know how to show this in a practical way sometimes.
