Do you think this guy makes some fair points as to why women will not date us?

No, I think his logic only applies to a small portion of women that most of us would be better off not even bothering to get to know.

Many people are willing to date someone who is on the spectrum. Many on WP are in or have been in relationships.

I have never had a relationship :?


What I find weird is that I had my first kiss a very long time ago but never under any circumstances have I had sex.

Most guys here don't pick up the non-verbal clues that suggest they should ask for dates.

THEY COULD BE SCREAMING and we wouldn't have a clue.

Do autistic women have to pick up on verbal clues from men?

I remember insisting a girl wasn't into me until after she shoved her underwear in my pocket. That was a clear enough communication. :lol:

No, if you live where it is customary for guys to ask women.
You might be seen as hard to get but guys are used to that and may ask anyway.

Yes.
Autistic women are also prone to struggling to form both friendships and romantic relationships. This isn't a strictly gendered issue even if gendered expectations and orientation are factors.

They might, supposing the gent doesn't read it as disinterest, rather than hard to get.

I have trouble knowing if someone likes me too and usually assume they don’t unless they tell me.

Valentine’s Day 2014 at a nightclub this girl and her friend approached me. Her friend said to me “my friend really fancies you do you want to dance with her”. Me being me I just stood there awkward and shy so they quickly moved on.


That sort of thing really does not happen often to guys does it because the expectations are we have to approach first

Yeah, this. Dating seems to be difficult for all genders on the spectrum given our difficulties with social skills.

Women are less likely to make the first move, but this is an admission it does happen, even to you personally.

Your non-response was likely taken as disinterest, as it would be if the tables were turned.
