Kerry in 2014 wrote a book called Autism and Falling in Love based on his experiences trying to find love on the autism spectrum. When I started dating at 18 I had NO idea how to talk to people, let alone women.
Many of the people I dated had good intents, but they may not have understood some of the quirks that people on the spectrum like me may have. Ten years later as a 28-year-old adult, I embrace affection.
Dating, as you can see, can be stressful for autistic adults. Date people you get to know through common interests.
So if we’re not looking at you right in the eyes when we are having a conversation, don’t think we’re trying to give you the cold shoulder.
Although we may have difficulties with communication, we still need you to be as open with us as possible to avoid misunderstandings. Sarcasm can sometimes go over our heads and when it does, know that we truly want to understand.
Getting out in public for the purpose of meeting people can be especially difficult for those on the autism spectrum because of social anxieties. The unpredictability of public social contexts, say a bar or a club or some type of event or social gathering, can heighten the anxiety level of people with autism, who typically have a need for structured and controlled environments.
It is also likely that people on the autistic spectrum have had numerous experiences in social settings that have left them disappointed and less than hopeful about meeting someone who understands their particular behaviors and can still relate in a meaningful way.
