Dating an autistic girl

However, it would be extremely limiting to suggest autistic people should only date others who are on the spectrum.

In Asperger’s and Anxiety Dubin mentions another autistic man who didn’t date until his forties. It can take autistic people a long time to develop the confidence and social skills we need to maintain meaningful relationships.

If you are unsure whether somebody on the autism spectrum will be comfortable with physical contact, just ask permission before you touch them.

3) An aversion to touch doesn’t always mean an aversion to sex. I can’t go into too much detail myself as I don’t have a constant aversion to touch.

I have fallen victim to this misguided stereotype countless times. Meeting new people makes me nervous and I don’t have the social skills necessary for interpreting peoples body language, facial expression and other forms of none verbal communication. I love chatting with my friends and going on dates.

I just need to make sure I allow myself plenty of time to recuperate afterwards.

They can occasionally take this too far, as it’s difficult for them to understand social boundaries.

I love hugs and can be very affectionate when I’m in a relationship.

But that does not mean meaningful relationships are impossible.
