This Play Sends You On The Most Awkward First Date
Recently, I’ve been enjoying a very particular type of dating. I have a serious partner I’m committed to, but we’re in a non-monogamous relationship where we’re allowed to more casually date other people. Because of this set-up, I have to say, I’ve been getting a lot better at first dates than ever before. Probably because there simply isn’t as much at stake for me now if a date goes badly, I’ve learned to really hone the power of being direct and honest.
Instead of worrying a ton about coming off as charming, or asking a bunch of questions that will somehow ingratiate the other person towards me, I’m just myself — and own it.

It might have been when she showed up late and alarmingly frazzled before immediately demanding a selfie in case I murdered her or we ended up married. But when I look back on the hour we spent together on a breezy August night in Los Angeles, the moment that makes me cringe the most is when I felt suddenly compelled to kiss her.
It was a one-on-one immersive theatrical experience called Red Flags. Whatever weird spark I was feeling was pure fiction. These are real things that happened earlier this year, but I digress. Red Flags was an especially stressful prospect: an interactive show where I was the only audience member.

As an autistic year-old with minimal dating experience , my guard immediately went up when I heard about Love on the Spectrum — a new Netflix dating show featuring autistic teens and somethings. I was right to be hesitant. This show treats autistic people like me as separate from the rest of society, and as inspiration porn for people to feel better about their own dating lives. In this sense, I was easily able to relate to the autistic people in the series. We see them stimming — short-hand for self-stimulating, which is repetitive movements, actions or use of fidget toys to regulate ourselves — and expressing their feelings about different aspects of being autistic.
We have personalities that shine through just like the rest of the population.
