Anybody listen to the May 11, 2022 NPR story, 'Dating Coaches, Who Specialize in Working with People with Autism, are in Demand.?'

I'm placing this discussion thread in the 'Social Skills & Making Friends Forum' for the reason that better understanding how the Autism Spectrum interferes with developing and maintaining platonic friendships - might just best "set the stage" for beneficial dating and intimate relationships.

My ex boyfriend could definitely use a dating coach and maybe I could too.

Referring to the original post: This thread is posted in the 'Social Skills & Making Freinds' Forum for the reason that healthy regular (platonic) friendships might just best set the stage for dating, and intimate relationships.

How may feel that dating coaches "worth their salt," and expreinced with clientele on the Autism Spectrum can best understand how all types of relationships / friendships can be sucessful - despite the Autism Spectrum?
