    Dating Tools for People on The Autism Spectrum

    in Self Help

    At Fantasy Dating, we're all about providing unique dating tools. This Wednesday, December 9, at 5:00 pm Pacific, we're excited to interview Olivia Cantu, the creator of Spectrum Singles, a dating site for people on the autism spectrum.


    Being autistic, Olivia has found it extremely difficult to establish relationships with others on the autism spectrum. "Let’s face it," she says. "Most of us are not exactly putting ourselves out there socially. However, the relationships I do have with others on the spectrum are comfortable and fulfilling, as I feel free to be myself and do not have to deal with the pressure and anxiety of appearing 'normal'."


    Olivia created Spectrum Singles so that singles on the autism spectrum could have a safe place to connect with each other. Join us to learn more about the site and how it works.


    We dare you.


    About Fantasy Dating: Fantasy Dating provides singles with an alternative to scrolling endless online dating profiles by challenging them to dare to date in real life. Like in other Fantasy Sports, players form leagues, set stakes and compete against each other to earn points. But when they Fantasy Date, they earn points by dating.
