Build a Relationship Online, Then Meet Offline One gentleman shared that he met his girlfriend online.They got to know each other online, and eventually met up offline.Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...Few pieces of advice are more frustrating to a mild autistic, since “common sense” in dating involves intuitively knowing the assumptions that others will make about you based on the cues you give off through what you say and do—which, of course, is precisely what AS causes you to miss.Regardless of whether two people are meeting on a prearranged date or striking up conversation in a casual setting, each one’s emotional response is determined by the assumptions they make based on a multitude of factors, from body language, facial expression, and eye contact to manner of dress, choice of conversation topics, and tone of voice (the same principle applies to online dating, although the cues are different).I'm going to go up to some person i don't know, ask them out, and go on some highly formalized social encounter, where they are scrutinizing everything about you to decide if they want to keep doing it together.Dating, as you can see, can be stressful for autistic adults. Date people you get to know through common interests.
Get to know people while involved in the activities. Have a graceful escape plan if needed, but do go along.
Cantu said she and her mother find it important to work with people on the spectrum, both for the sake of understanding one another and to "help put their outstanding work out there for everyone to see." Spectrum Singles is young, but Cantu said they are already seeing members meet in person and begin to warm up to one another.
As the community grows she hopes to begin events and contests, and said they will soon start a blog and online forums discussing dating tips and entries about everyday life on the spectrum.
