  • Depends on our connection and chemistry much the same as anyone else. Obviously there are different levels of autism but once I felt through full and honest communication we understand the dynamics and issues of a relationship. There will be things we both have to work at for her and me but if we can get beyond that, why not?
    I do feel like it is like the evolution of any relationship just with a lot more visible issues than other budding relationships that may have potential issues unseen and once the autism issue is handled it is probably a lot plainer sailing than other people because from what I hear people with high functioning autism are very straightforward, what you see is what you get.

  • yup to both bc they dont lie!

    sorry for the stereotyping here.. they usually have a different way of looking at things. i tend to like people with functional autism they are just direct i trust them. so far anyhow.

    • Show All
    • I honestly can't say, but the only way to know is getting a formal diagnosis

  • I was hanging out with a lady last year who said she divorced her husband after many years of marriage and even raising their kids to adulthood. She said he had Asperger's and she could no longer deal with his issues. Funny that there are 3 men who she hangs out with who are all 3 like that. I knew her through a shared hobby but I quit hanging with her because she developed a certain coldness towards me. The 3 guys she does hang out with are all involved with the hobby so that is how I know them. Funny she gravitates towards that.

    I know that doesn't answer the question you are asking, but I think it is just a side note on my part. LOL...

  • I'd certainly give it a go. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. If it didn't work out, at least I would have done my very best.

  • I thought autism was mostly a guy thing. Like most girls are already born autistic

  • It all depends on the type of autism and how well they're functioning. I would definitely date someone with autism if I loved their personality.

  • Friendship? Yes! I know several people who has aspergers/autism and they are the nicest people ever.
    Dating? Hard to say, but I would probably have to pass.

  • My 9 year old cousin has autism. I wouldn't date an autistic guy though. Even though I'm ADHD I think it wouldn't work out. I might be a special ed teacher when I'm older though.

  • I first hand know how people with autism work, my brother has autism and he's very frustrating. I love him but he's very difficult to work with. So no, I'd be friends with someone who has autism. But me personally, I do not have the patience nor tolerance for being in a relationship with someone who has autism.
