Asperger dating service

Hussein knows that because of his brutal honesty, he is often unable to process why anyone else would be dishonest.

“It helps them order their day, it helps them order their actions.”Characteristics of ASD include repetitive behaviors, communication difficulties like lack of eye contact, and coordination problems.

“I’m trying to not be shy about it.”Hussein, though, has reservations about mentioning his condition to his potential prospects.“At the moment I don’t want to reveal that I have Asperger’s because some people who are already on Ok Cupid will think that ‘this person has a disability,’” he says.

But 23-year-old Leah Grantham took a different approach on Ok Cupid, opening up about her autism from the outset.

“It’s important to know that those differences are there.”Wendy Katz, who works for a nonprofit in Louisville, Kentucky, met her ex-husband online, and after her divorce eight years later, she’s dating again.

Diagnosed at 17, Katz has no problem being social, but she says it’s a daily practice.

“You can’t always tell if a person is autistic unless you start talking with them; a lot of us are pretty stealth about it.

But we can be a lot more honest about it when we are doing online dating.”She said she doesn't limit herself to dating only on the spectrum, though.“I kind of go through a cycle in my dating life where I will want at one point to date people who are also autistic and be very insistent that my partner is on the spectrum,” she says.

My brother, Hussein Al-Nasrawi, sits in his bedroom with his Mac Book in his lap, clicking away on the keyboard. As he stares at his computer screen, he never cracks a smile; in fact, he doesn't smile very much in general.
