OP, it seems like you are fundamentally missing the point of what dating is all about. Dating isn't about having a rigid list of criteria, and only settling when you can’t find someone who meets that criteria. Dating isn't just about passing on your genes and getting validation from another person. ...

Most of us ended up being gaslit or otherwise abused if we tried to support specific members I hope that's not the case, I don't remember seeing anything like that. You likely aren't aware of it because it typically happens on PM. Some of these men reach out for friendship or support but they becom...

Sending you and her well-wishes.

In general autistic men find it hard to date than autistic women, but autistic women find it harder to make friends than autistic men. This does not apply to everybody on the spectrum but it does seem quite common. I dunno about that one. I think a lot of us guys who struggle with dating also strug...

I get what you're saying, but when you've never had a relationship despite wanting one for a long time, it's hard not to feel unwanted, and those feelings of inadequacy have the potential to be stoked every time I find myself exposed to a couple. It's not a good way to be. I know this feeling, and ...

I wouldn't say a lot. I think more women here are sympathetic than not, but it's probably harder for some of them who haven't had similar struggles to empathise, as is the nature of autism. There are also successful men here who are quite unsympathetic to those of us who struggle, too. On the flipsi...

A lot of autistic people struggle with finding romantic partners. But what I'm more concerned with is how much of yourself you've put into this little section of life. I think it's fair to say that romance and relationships are a big deal to most people. More than a little section of life, but I ge...

That was an isolated incident. I wanted to try going out again, but I have no reliable friends to accompany me. Not to harp on about it, but this is exactly what an NDIS support person would be useful for. The right support worker can be very discreet, just like being out with an acquaintance, but ...

But what is resulting in your unbearable emotional experience is your judgement of your circumstances and yourself...and though the past cannot be changed, the present and the future can be. There are multiple factors that feed into my unbearable emotional experience. Part of it is being made to fe...

Werent you going out more and having fun with women recently? That was an isolated incident. I wanted to try going out again, but I have no reliable friends to accompany me. I really need some sort of quick fix... Unfortunately there is no quick fix for anything in life, ever. Everything takes a lo...

@aLifeLikeWeeds: I appreciate the thought you've put into your post. Feel free to correct me if I have it wrong, but it seems like your overarching message is that we have subjective experiences as human beings, and those experiences make us feel certain ways, but there is no objective good and bad....

I unfortunately use weed largely to self-medicate my severe depression. It's the most effective way I can achieve momentary reprieve.

I'm under the influence right now.

I'm really just over it. Clearly there's nothing I can do to feel better in the immediate future. I don't have the patience or resilience for a grand undertaking while I'm feeling like this. I really need some sort of quick fix to ameliorate my emotional turmoil, but it just seems like it's not goin...

^ best way is to go to ndis.gov.au Its a bit of a complicated process. I recieve NDIS funding. Mine's broken up into social support, communication support, therapies (psycology, OT etc) and assistive equipment. The social support might be good in your case. Thanks for the info. Do you really think ...

Hi again. I may be repeating but I believe you should consider receiving support from autism association of your state through NDIS funding. I am high-functioning, too, but still have difficulties such as inability to interact with people properly and inability to make friends. I always end up beco...

I'm so sick of feeling sad and lonely. It's hard for me to believe that things are ever going to improve. I want to feel wanted, accepted and loved by a special someone, but I really don't see it happening. I don't see how I'm going to get a girlfriend anytime soon. I'm disillusioned and jaded with ...
