People all over the autism spectrum have relationships which run the gamut, from friends-with-benefits arrangements to long and happy marriages.Despite all of this, I have only ever had one 5-month relationship when I was 16. I’ve found it very very difficult to get dates at a regular frequency, so in that time I’ve been on only 20 dates.These are the Post-Mortems, where we dissect a letter and dig through the remains in order to get to the heart of the issue. Many times, we’re having to liberally apply the Chair Leg of Truth to a lifetime of beliefs.But, while the love may be tough, at the end we’re going to know exactly what went wrong and how we can do better next time.But attraction and compatibility are physical components, too, and they are impossible to determine until you meet in person.There are a multitude of signals and signs that dictate who we are and aren’t attracted to – many of which we aren’t consciously aware of.
