Thanks - I put it on my wishlist on my book site.

I have given him a few articles to read with little success...maybe something more in depth will help. Part of it, I think, is that he is fairly far along the spectrum toward Asperger's in my opinion. I've been looking into finding some material for ME to read to learn how to communicate with him better.

Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (24+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (6+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic hetero girlfriend and BFF
MrClean: hetero mono male, almost lover-friend to me, FWBs to SLeW
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
