Resources and new ideas for the autistic adult community in the New York City metro area.

Love and romance: Are there ways we can make this easier for autistic people?

One of the hardest things for many autistic people is finding/developing a romantic relationship.

This is something I personally have been relatively successful at, in my own weird way. I've been in a longterm relationship with an autistic man since 2012.

However, some of the autistic community's biggest problems revolve around the difficulties many of us have with finding and developing a romantic relationship. So, as a person committed to building the autistic community, I am interested in possible ways that the community to make the attainment of romantic relationships easier for many of us, not only by teaching dating skills and relationship skills, but also by finding ways that a better-organized autistic community itself could change some of the rules of the game.
