First boyfriend

Boyle reveals to The Sun that she is dating an American doctor, whom she met when they stayed at the same hotel during her recent tour.

I don’t want to say any more about who he is right now as that would be unfair on him. All I’ll say is we are around the same age and he was a very nice guy.

Asperger’s Syndrome diagnosis

Boyle tells Daily Mail that she has been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, a mild form of autism, which makes her feel like ‘King Kong’s mother’.

Off stage, [my bad behavior] happens lots. It always has. But I’m getting better at dealing with it because I know what it is. If I feel I’m going to take a mood swing, I get up and leave. I get depressed. I just go away, be myself. Then I come back to you. I always come back. It is definitely getting better. Since the diagnosis I’ve learned strategies for coping with it, and the best one is always to just walk away. I want people to see how it is, to see that you shouldn’t judge. People with Asperger’s do put a barrier up because they don’t know how to trust people. I try not to. I want to let people in.

There was about 50 television stations outside my door. And it’s difficult . . . for someone who was really quiet to come to terms with that. I was like a scared child before, but I’m not the scared person I used to be.
