And yet, this appears to be how the vast majority of people get into relationships.. which I feel puts me at a striking disadvantage. I'm very principled, and I can't change this about myself. I can't touch people if I don't know it's okay first.
So, my question is, is it okay to have a principle of always having to ask before I hold a girls hand or kiss her? Only, I'm aware there is a belief that most girls enjoy spontaneity, being grabbed and kissed spontaneously, as long as there is mutual attraction. See the thing is I can't know unless I ask. One of the most difficult things about being autistic is not being able to read people. Literally having to ask people how they are feeling, feel about something, regularly.
Will this make me a boring guy who's too nice and polite, not exciting enough? It did with this one girl, but she had major issues of a much more complex degree.

I think that's cute. It comes off as you being old-fashioned, which many girls do like.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

As someone who probably is a high functioning autism myself... I always abided by this rule. So when I did get into relationships, I always told them at first.. It made it easier for them, to initiate. I always missed the signals, always.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
