Dating someone with Autism, need some advice?

So I've been talking to this guy online and he seems really nice. We are having our first date this weekend. I'm pretty excited, and he seems excited too.

He admitted to me that he has autism and he's nervous because he's had issues in the past when meeting people.

I don't know much about autism, but I've been doing some research. But I thought I would reach out to the GAG community for some advice.
