Can people find love with typical people? Are more people accepting of people who are on some side of the autism spectrum

They can and I know people who have, but as an autistic guy myself I’ve been struggling. Just get made fun of, ghosted, blanked or used by most girls so I’ve lost hope

Oh I am sorry about that. I have autism as well. Don’t lose hope, I am sure you will find someone someday.

We live in a more accepting society and yes I'm sure there are autistic people who have found love.

Yes, my brother's GF is autistic.
They have bizarre relationship though, my brother has taken on all of her idiosyncrasies. She doesn't come across as being stereotypically autistic (what ever that means).
When talking to her the main difference you would notice is that she will freely tell you personal information that other people would generally be too embarrassed to share.

Ah I see. I am not the only person with autism in my family. I also have a cousin who is autistic but he struggles socially while I tend to be very good at socializing. He’s a smart teen but very socially awkward, doesn’t pick up on social cues. We are almost positive he has asbergers. He was diagnosed but we never asked what part of the autism spectrum is he on. He would tell us information that no one knew about or cared about, he is unable to see that people are uninterested in what he’s currently talking about. He would ramble on talking about something while following my aunt aka his mom or my mom. He seemed to like talking to adults more than people who were around his age. He’s like two year younger than me. I am 20 and he will be 18 very soon.

I know people who are like that as well.

Yes, I know a few people with this diagnosis who are married and have families; one of them is the headmaster of a school.

I was in a relationship with an autistic girl for about a year. It eventually stopped working for us but nothing lasts forever.

It seems to be much easier for autistic women but I am sure autistic men have a chance too.
