Would you, and generally, do you think guys with it have much of a chance finding a woman?

No comment.

Really, no comment. Because you wouldn't like what I would say.

How old are you OP? I was just wondering, cause I wasn't sure how much rejection you would have had based on your age so far.

Autism is a really broad spectrum. At its higher end, relationship wouldn't even be on the cards, since the person would have difficulty in engaging; at its lower end its symptoms are often dismissed as personal quirks by those not in the know, which shouldn't hinder personal connections with the right person. A lot of the social difficulties in mild autism can be mediated through therapy. And there is other support in terms of anxieties and depressive conditions, which are common throughout the spectrum.

My father had Asperger's. He managed to settle down, so if this little example is anything to go by, I guess it's that it's not impossible.

It would be hard to answer this well in an Internet forum because most people would say no, without ever having met you. And even if all of us here had met you, we still probably wouldn’t be a match, so again we’d say no.

But in fact I know that while autism makes it more difficult to date, it does not make it impossible and I’ve met several couples where at least one of them appeared to be on the spectrum so I know it’s possible to find love. I think it would probably make it more likely to find love if you concentrated on making friends rather than on dating and take it slowly when you do meet someone you like. Don’t take it so slowly that the woman doesn’t even realize that you like her though!

No. I would want a man that can take care of himself and not socially awkward

I think to hear that stigma of "no" automatically is awful. Just because a person is socially awkward doesn't mean they can't take care of themselves. There are people who are very successful, yet are on the spectrum and some people are probably undiagnosed.

Part of the reason people on the spectrum have a harder time is because people have preconceived notions that anyone with a label is not dateable. Having a physical disability of a prosthetic leg, depression, maybe bipolar or maybe anxiety depending on the interactions with those people with others, seem to be more acceptable. Higher functioning forms of autism should be on this list at the very least, but I don't feel that is the case because people don't want to understand it.

"Nerds" are becoming more the rave, and ironically, a significant number of autistic people could fall under such a realm.

Any type of physical or mental disability will always make dating much harder?

This is especially for men, because women want to date men who "have it together" and are "like their fathers"

I have cerebral palsy and while I date here and there, it's a kiss of death.....so be prepared
