Not too long ago I’d been watching an episode of ‘The Undateables’, (which for those of you who might not know it’s a programme to do with adults with autism and/or other disabilities dating someone who also has disabilities) and can be quite interesting to watch :)
I have seen parts of some of this programme. And!....
I realise that I'm worse than most of these people. They are amateurs when it comes to having problems dating.
What Robert said.
I know we are very difficult for a neurotypical to tolerate/ understand
As an aspie I cannot identify with the people on that show, however I do enjoy watching it. Gives me the warm fuzzies.
Well I for one have no dating troubles... simply because I haven't actually dated in about 20 years. Most of the people I grew up with are now in relationships or married with kids. On the one hand I feel jealous of them having someone to 'share the load' so to speak, on the other it feels like it'd be a nightmare for me to have to navigate the vagaries of married life every single day.
I have played the dating game and tbh I cant do small talk, so I bore them silly with the details of IT and computing, scuba diving and anything else I happen to be interested in at that point. Then we amicably finish the date and never speak to each other again. i've done that 3 or 4 times in the last 2 years. thats my experience of dating NT's. Once day I might find an ND and then it might be more interesting.
I’m sure they can help with however severe a person may be, so there’s always hope for you :)
