    I dated a guy for a week who was autistic and one saturday I said, "so when are you going to start painting and stuff?" and he looked at me like I was retarded and said "what?" and I said "when we first met you said you were an artist" and he said "I told you I was autistic."

    That was the last saturday we spent together. I mean, I could date an artist, but someone with a speech imediment?

    I wouldn't date you not because you're autistic, but because your pics creep me out.

    To the OP :
    It's difficult to feel comfortable with autistic people, unless you have experience about it (family members etc..).
    You need to feel comfortable with someone to enjoy spending time together.
    People feel threatened by those they don't understand, and can be mean and aggressive out of it.
    Don't let this stop you for reaching out.

    I've been dating a guy with high functioning autism and mild aspergers for 2 years and we're looking for a bigger place to move in together.

    It's not always easy, if he has a problem he either bottles it up because he doesn't like confrontation or he just shuts down and won't talk at all, but on the other hand, I've never met a more thoughtful or amazing person in my life.

    His autism also keeps me on my toes as I never know what he's going to come out with next. Like the time we were at the Natutal History Museum in London, we were walking under the life sized modle of a Blue Whale and there just happened to be a group of Japanese tourist walking towards us, which prompted my awesomely autistic boyfriend to say (not exactly directed at them)

    "No, no, don't harpoon it, it's already dead!" icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

    Once I was over the shock of what he'd said and the fact that they either didn't hear him or didn't understand, I could laugh at the situation.

    I don't see him as being any different to anybody else. He's originally from Camarillo, California. When he was still living in the States he worked as a high school teacher, he has also worked as an I.T based project manager handling millions of dollars for huge international corporations. He is for all intent and purposes a perfectly normal productive member of society, he just has a few more quirks than the rest of us.

    To all the people on here who are "hating" the "haters"; lighten up fellas, my boyfriend and I crack far worse jokes than anything that's been said on here about autism. I tell him on a regular basis that he's an alien his dad found on an army base (his dad worked for the military) and that any strange noise we hear is the mother ship coming to take him home...

    Too all of the people cracking jokes on here, yeah some of what you have said is funny, but please try to remember that autistic people are still PEOPLE. they are still capable of loving and being loved.

    yourname2000 saidYeah, I'll happily be the asshole again: I wouldn't....not into that stuff. icon_neutral.gif


    Hatters are going to hate no matter what, and to think many of them have abilities you never will and they are loved as well, as you are not.

    Now how old were you when you realised you were diffrent from everybody else? You know many people have and do look at us poofters as being retards, so that gives them a right to put you down tooicon_rolleyes.gif

    To the guys that are just being honest and answering the question is fine I dont know why some of you consider that bullying. To the guys that think its funny to make a joke to someones face about it: How F***ed up are you being a homo where you fully understand what its like to be at the expense end of a joke and still go and do that sh**. You're so funny. Maybe one day I'll be that cool.

    I have aspergers, which formally is high functioning autism with the new DSM-V coming out.

    In some ways it makes things very hard for me, in others, it makes things much easier. Ultimately, I haven't had guys make too much of an issue of it. Part of the reason is though, I have put tremendous work into myself to overcome the more serious issues I had with it when I was in my younger years.

    You'll find people that will want to me with you, for you. Independent of autism. However, that doesn't mean you can't work on yourself to improve functioning. Like it or not we live in a neurotypical world, and we have to do our best to adapt and fit to that.

    I fully agree. Moreover, there are different degrees of autism. If a person is only mildly affected by autism, it might not even be noticed. Moreover, an autistic person could have compensating virtues that would make him a wonderful partner in spite of his autism.

    Yep the nasty boys are at it again, sad really I used to like some of them, now they are just being nasty for nasty sake. Bit sad for 40 something's to carry on like that, however over the past few days I'm beginning to think many of them, themselves are suffering from one form or another of mental illness

    One fully agrees with you, but saddly you have ran with the nasty boys here too, and I have had to talk back to you in defences of oneself, just because I vote conservative and you don't, and you felt this gave you the right to bully one. Truth is voting conservative and being a homosexual. does not = self loathing. In fact it's the opposite. I have the ability to put my country and others before myself, and my wants.

    I'm grateful I spent a number of year working in early intervention with very young children with autism; it was a lot of bloody hard work, but I was a better person for it.
