Autistic gay dating
I don't pick up on those "unspoken" social rules that everyone else gets. Freshman year of high school a guy with severe autism liked me and I dated him for a year!I'll post on that subreddit as well, I actually just found that a couple seconds ago. We never did anything sexually but he liked holding my hand and kissing my cheek!
It's one of those things that's different for each individual.The question may be a little misleading, by no means would I assume most people would pass someone up just because he was autistic.That's not what I'm saying, I'm asking if anyone has ever met someone who's gay who was also on the autism spectrum?I'd let your potential partner know you have these difficulties in communication and let it happen. Now I've taught myself to filter out what I say to an extent but not everyone learns this or has progressed as far as I have. :/Oh, but I don't think I would date gay men with autism... Minor misunderstandings are part of life, as long as a guy's willing to work at communicating with me, it's fine. (Asperger's Syndrome was my diagnosis before the controversial decision to remove it from the DSM.) I honestly don't know if I would date someone who is. They all experience varying degrees of social struggles.If they're just too rude to me, I have to cut it off even if I know they're not trying to be mean or disrespectful at all. Dating someone on the Autistic Spectrum can be a problem when the individual is using their diagnosis as an excuse to cover up actions that are any combination of illegal, immoral or just downright rude.
What would your thoughts be if someone you were going on dates with told you they were on the spectrum? SHE had to point it out to ME, which resulted in about an hour of hilarious laughter and a discussion about ASD and emotions and communication. Any situation you can think of that includes communication.
