An online dating service is like having a friend go into the pub ahead of you as a “scout,” and this scout picks 5 people who you could go out with. Of course, this doesn't mean that any of those 5 people are perfect for you, just that they share important traits and interests that are the basis for a compatible relationship. Most online dating sites have a "matching algorithm," (i.e., a formula that matches people in a way that helps ensure they are compatible, thus significantly increasing the chances of romantic success). Adults on the autism spectrum often tend to be better at writing out what they feel and think (e.g., in chat messages), whereas in “real life,” they might hold back feelings or thoughts, or be too afraid or embarrassed to talk about some things. Dating sites allow you to place a photo along with a personal ad, and some even have audio capability so you can listen to your potential partner’s voice.While this may sound a bit superficial at first, it actually takes the whole "meat market" aspect out of the dating process because it allows you to weed out the individuals that you feel uncomfortable with from the start. For the frugal minded “Aspie, online dating saves you a lot of money.I also have asperger's and I've noticed that it's hard for me to find someone too.I don't know what I do wrong, or if it's even something that I'm consciously doing or if I'm just not aware of or what, but the longest relationship I've had with a girl...... That's why I usually tell the people to tell me straight foward what I'm doing wrong or what image am I projecting.Hi, I admire you're courage and fortitude, believe me, dating is complicated for everyone. He just operates with a different perspective (why should there be only one? You communicate really well, better than some w/o Asperger's! I didn't realise what was wrong until about 4-5 years ago.One girl I talked to on another site with Asperger's got married last year. I have found that it is easier to force myself to maintain longer eye contact if the light level is lower. In the past I would usually look away by looking down (floor).Busty women usually (or it seems to me to be usually) interpret this as staring at their chest.So, I've learned that if I have to look away, to look a bit upward and the the side.
Imagine walking into the local pub with 50 strangers in it.The test is also overloaded with sensory-related issues that are highly correlated.So, no, this site will not improve matching of neurodiverse people.If you find yourself constantly alone, and if you would really enjoy having a love relationship but don't know how to get one, you will want to consider starting with an “online dating” approach.Too much anxiety and self-consciousness create a bad first impression; therefore, believe me when I tell you that online dating is infinitely better for adults with Asperger’s and High Functioning Autism compared to a first-time, face-to-face blind date.
