Like someone who lives in the same country etc?
One issue that can be difficult is where a lack of understanding as different countries and pwoples have different ways which can lead to difficulties. Love conquors all.

Some couples do go the mail-order bride route AKA International Dating for those of you who find that term more PC. Those couples may be very opposite of each other in some ways but that can sometimes balance out well. Like if the guy has a bit of money & likes taking charge & the woman is passive & comes from a very poor background. The guy was raised to be a financial provider & the woman was raised to be a housewife. It could be a very symbiotic relationship.

While I do tend to be much more attracted to women who are more on my level, there are exceptions & I fell VERY HARD for a woman who is very different from me. I generally prefer women who are dependent, not really intellectual types, & more introverted. Whereas Miranda is a famous actress who's very independent, & smart, but she's also very down to earth, very wholesome, & very sweet, & anybody would be extremely lucky to be with her.

Negative.

My own kind does not exist in greater quantities than one.

Elaborate, please.


@Fnord

Neurodiverse people "lane" and avoid NTs


If you're trying to date women, the answer is probably no.

The gender ratio of Aspies (or at least diagnosed ones) is overwhelmingly male, so only dating Aspie women severely limits your options.

It depends on the person.

I would like someone who has a similar philosophy of life to me.

No…I don’t believe in necessarily “sticking to my lane.” It’s lame to limit yourself that way.

Unless your playing a video-game together like Grand Theft Auto on multiplayer. Then accidents can happen in whichever lane your in but those accidents can be very fun :mrgreen:
