I have a 17 year old male teenager with moderately severe Autism who continues to tell me wants a girlfriend. In his class it's mostly males. My question is where can he meet females like himself to be able to date. He gets so 😢. I just want him to be able to have normal experiences life.

My son w/ high functioning autism is 21 and just got married last month! He met the girl of his dreams at a music camp. One of his interests and talents is guitar (ory any instrument it seems!!!) and he met her on his first day there 6 years ago!! So I would suggest that you help him find a group of some sort that is of interest to him and maybe he'll meet someone there. OR, as we tell our 23 year old son who would also like a girlfriend, is not diagnosed with ASD and hasn't found the person he wants to be with that you never know when or where you will meet the girl you will marry (my hubby and I didn't meet till we were 27 and it was very random and unexpected!).
