My adult son is Autistic, lives on his own and would like to date. He is not Asperger's, although if he hadn't been a bit oxygen deprived at birth, he might have been. He has explored dating websites himself, but they haven't been appropriate. Anyone know of something better.

  • A friend of mine does 8 minute dating. I think the website is But you can google it too. It has you do a little survey to match you up with people, and then it is like a speed dating session. He has done it twice and really likes it.

  • Has he thought about joining a group that is centered around something he is interested in and then going from there. Like alocal book club or that kind of thing. That way, he will know he has something in common with any woman he meets.
