Singles often go to bars to meet each other, but in reality, very few couples actually meet at a bar “singles scene.” If you have ASD, going up to someone new in a bar and striking up a conversation may seem particularly ineffective.
Rest assured, there are many other ways to meet someone. Take the time to really notice the people you encounter on public transportation and at your favorite places to visit.
But, the authority of Christ needs to take precedence over your physical drives. If the social, emotional, spiritual dimensions are missing or lacking, you are out of balance.
Just like all other aspects of life, resources and supports exist to help those with autism navigate these phases of life.
