Thinking of doing another online dating website? Anyone that’s free? Also would there be such a thing as support groups for people with Aspergers? If so, where would be a good place to look?

There's a chap who once in a while used to come here advertising his own service, called Aspieology. I can be wrong but I don't think it's been very successful. However you'll may want to check anyway.

Dunno about "free," but there do exist dating sites for autistic people that charge money. Still interested in hearing about them?

As for support groups for people with Aspergers in Wisconsin, some quick Googling brought up the following:

https://www.autismgreaterwi.org/event-c ... 019-05-06/
https://www.assew.org/southeastern-wisc ... ort-group/
https://autismsouthcentral.org/find-support/support/
https://autismsouthcentral.org/find-sup ... ort-group/
https://www.autismgreaterwi.org/event-c ... group/all/

Hopefully one of these will be convenient for you.

Dating sites for autistics may seem like a good idea in theory but they do not actually work well. The ratio of diagnosed autistic guys to girls is 4 to 1. Also Aspergers is thought of as an extreme male brain so an Aspie girl would have an easier time relating to an NT guy than an Aspie guy relating to an NT girl. The social rules with dating are different for guys than girls & as a result it tends to be easier for autistic girls to get dates than autistic guys thou there are plenty of exceptions. I joined some autism dating sites & the ratio of guys to girls on the legit 1s were 10 to 1.

You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.
