A friend of mine has a friend who has Asperger's Syndrome. She's 21, still living at home - but her parents don't set any rules or boundaries on dating, or boys and as a result she's kind of looking for love in all the wrong places. She's going through hell at home and in general and I guess she thinks that she can fill the void of love that her parents don't give her with guys. She doesn't have much self respect and is open in the fact that she knows that guys just use her for her body. Is there a way we can talk to her parents about setting rules or offering help or protect her ourselves? She's already seen the bad side in dating (her first boyfriend was touching her inappropriately without asking consent or letting her give consent) which has now shown her that she deserves to get hurt.
