It is just as important to be able to detect interest as it is to sense interest, but picking up on a sarcastic tone of voice or avoidance is often challenging.Similarly it is important that you know how to appropriately show your interest in someone.

Online dating and joining a new social group may be better options for you.

Online dating websites can make it easier to get familiar with a person before meeting them.

Information about another person’s likes and dislikes are available so that you can plan ahead for what to do with that person or what to talk about.

Some sites claim to match people based on personality and behavior traits, including how much time the individual wants to spend alone and how important a physical relationship is.

If meeting someone one-on-one seems like a big first step, participation in a social group or club activities is a great way to meet people with similar interests.

Group activities are often less stressful than one-on-one situations because the focus is on the activity, not on making small talk.Don’t despair if you don’t see any dating prospects while on your everyday routines.However, you may need to get out of your comfort zone in order to meet someone new.If you are a parent or a friend of an adult with ASD, your job is to make sure that the person knows that you are open and available for support.Some people (even those without ASD) say that meeting people is the hardest part of dating.You can use the cues for detecting interest to show interest as well.
