Be honest, guys.

I'm not saying there are no attractive autistic girls. There are certainly a lot of them that have great looks and great personalities.

Problem is, that the ones in my area are sheltered, unappealing, and very awkward.
There is one autistic girl I liked but she ended up going out with this Russian guy.

I'm cute and don't look all that awkward anymore Laughing
But I get what you mean, my Aspie friend has that look. She's stunningly beautiful, but she looks really awkward all the time.

I think a lot of the autistic girls I've met in person and on this site are beautiful, except they come across as awkward and that ruins it in a way. I know I'm awkward Confused

If I find an autistic girl attractive, it wouldn't be just because she is autistic. Razz

Perhaps I'm in the minority (wouldn't be the first time) but I think there is something quite attractive in that awkwardness. Maybe endearing is a better word? At any rate, it doesn't make them any less attractive to me.

For the short form, read only the part in [brackets]:

[Yes, but it depends on the girl. I am convinced, by the way, that there is someone for everyone in this world. You'll find her eventually--or she'll find you, you never know....]

If the person whom I'm thinking of is autistic (and I do believe she's an aspie), then yes, very much so, but (in her specific instance) only as a friend. One of my best friends, to be sure, but just a friend. It's not that she's unattractive--she happens to be drop-dead gorgeous and has the smarts to match. It's just that we don't 'click', if you know what I mean.

There's also another girl who could be an aspie--borderline, very borderline currently, but what she's told me about her childhood is classic aspie. She's the most amazing person I know, and one of my very closest friends (2nd best friend--and I am sure of this). I also happen to love her with my entire heart and soul.

It may be worth noting that I am borderline too (I was speaking with a very cool guy who works with autistic kids in Baltimore, and I commented that I had Asperger's. He then said that he would not have guessed it if I had not told him) and that may have a significant bearing on my response.

On WP, there seems to be quite a few, but I have never actually met any girls with autism.

I have never met a girl with autism (who was old enough to date anyway). But if I did her awkwardness would not be a problem. Tell me, how would awkwardness ruin it for you? I myself am awkward, so I would be sympathetic toward it, and I think it would make me love her even more. Girls who are really strong-willed, super-confident, or full of themselves usually frighten me away because I know I cannot live up to their standards forever.

And as far as physical appearance, I thiink my usual standards would apply, which should be OK seeing as how autism in and of itself does not really affect physical appearance.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy I'm sure the topic could apply to attractive autistic men as well. One of my best friends is autistic and very handsome.

Pretty much agreed with that.
