Dating autism spectrum

Build a Relationship Online, Then Meet Offline One gentleman shared that he met his girlfriend online.

Or, you may want to consider finding a pen pal, and getting to know each other through good old fashioned letter writing!

I've always had it easier communicating in writing, where i can take my time, form my thoughts, and freeflow edit as i see fit.

As opposed to a pressuring one on one chat about whatever topic of the day strikes the other's fancy.

Stress during social situations, constant social misunderstandings, and an inability to understand basic social cues leads to a life of selected social interactions, on a desperate to have basis.

So naturally, dating is the worst nightmare someone with AS (autism spectrum) could face.

I'm going to go up to some person i don't know, ask them out, and go on some highly formalized social encounter, where they are scrutinizing everything about you to decide if they want to keep doing it together.

Dating, as you can see, can be stressful for autistic adults. Date people you get to know through common interests.

I've looked for dating tips from within the autism community to share with you today. Do not make dating the main objective, such as volunteer organizations.

Get to know people while involved in the activities. Have a graceful escape plan if needed, but do go along.

-Anonymous Go to Volunteer Match and identify organizations near you to become involved in.

You can also go to Meetup to find groups with common interests.
