10 things I wish people knew about dating someone who has autism

Once again I can not take credit for this amazing article, however I stumbled across it whole obsessing over one of my two special interests – Autism.

I think Kerry may be one of my new favorite bloggers! 🙂

Here are some things you need to know when it comes to dating someone with autism…

      10. Just because we may want to be by ourselves at times doesn’t mean we don’t care about you.

Some of us want to unwind during a long day just like anyone else.

      9. Eye contact may be difficult for us at times.

When we are having a conversation if I’m not looking at you right in the eyes don’t think I’m trying to give you the cold shoulder.

       8. Ask me any question you have.

Although we may have difficulties with communication, we still need you to be as open with us as possible to avoid misunderstandings. Ask us questions early to avoid issues later.
