Love... or relating skills?

I had an interesting conversation recently with a very wonderful godly gentleman who has an elder son with Asperger's syndrome. Asperger's is part of the autism spectrum. People with it are generally very able in their speech, but lack relating skills.

His comment about his son was: "Well, he can't relate to his peers well at all. But on the other hand, he has a wonderful capacity to really love people. Really - which is more important??"

It's an interesting question. Which is more important? And what is love? If you can't relate to your peers, how do you show love? How do others show love to you if they can't relate to you? If I could choose either love or relating skills, which would it be?
