Re: Autistic Boyfriend - November 7th 2010, 04:22 AM

Well I don't know too much about autism but I do know that it would cause complications. I know a girl with autism and it seems like she doesn't really realize what effects her actions cause. She doesn't seem to know when he hurts someones feelings or when shes annoying someone. Now I'm not saying they can't be loveable; this girl is very family oriented. But I do think it would take more work then with a non-autistic person. Communication would probably be a bit rocky, but with some hard work I think it could work out. Autistics are people too.

And here you are living, despite it all.
