Deal with your other issues as best you can if you want to make yourself more attractive. If you're undiagnosed, get diagnosed. Medication can do a lot for ADHD . There are many beautiful women over 40. Why not consider them? Some younger women are attracted to or open to dating older men. My partne...

If I had stayed with my last partner, I would have ended up in such a relationship. I can't be in a sexless relationship. I think this is also age dependent. If your < 50 then of course sex is a big factor in any relationship. But for older people it's really not as big a deal. People don't talk ab...

I'm hopeless at initiating, so Morocco would be great, if I were single. I've spent time in Arab countries, but very different ones.

Find an empty room with a cat. Of course these 2 things are not always available.

I tend to prefer the company of odd, quirky eccentric people, autistic or not. I also prefer introverts.

Odd. Most 18-year-olds would be trying to get away from their parents.

There's a big difference between lowering your standards and broadening your standards. Most very young people (and some older ones) have very narrow standards uncritically accepted from the media and peers. My own standards are high, but they're much broader than when I was 20.

ya, men are the only gender that have to get social akwwardness or social ineptness overcome, handled, if they want to have a dating life or have love in their life I'm not sure that's true. I've seen women who were too awkward to successfully pursue partners or maintain interest from people who ha...

I have a dad bod & my gf likes that. She doesn't find lots of mussels attractive & she also finds very skinny people less attractive. She's very overweight so that could be a factor.

I'm allergic to mussels myself. Also oysters, clams and scallops.

The concept of "leagues" in relationships is over-simplistic to the point of stupidity. No person is defined by just one factor, and no one factor is responsible for attraction. No doubt the OP, seeing a photo of me with my partner, would consider her far out of my "league". Fort...

You can't be brilliant at something without being obsessed. There's nothing wrong with that. But that doesn't mean you need to talk to other people about it nonstop. That's just annoying. It's a lesson I'm trying to teach my AS son. But he doesn't listen--he's too busy monologuing.

Not making a moral judgement. Just saying how I personally feel about it.

It can work, but the two people and their expectations need to be very well balanced. In my experience, it more often ends with one person unhappily wanting more than the other.

I don't worry about dementia as much as I worry about being perceived as having dementia for the autistic traits I've had my whole life. When you're 25 people think "weird," but when you're 70 they think "dementia."

That's terrible. I'm sorry you had to deal with that.

It partially reminds my of my ex.

If a woman doesn't want anything to do with you, why do you want anything to do with her? Don't waste time on people who wouldn't be good or right for you anyway.
