What should you know about dating someone on the autism spectrum? This is one of the many questions Matt Fuller’s new documentary, Autism in Love, seeks to uncover about how people with the disorder pursue and manage romantic relationships. Finding love can be hard enough for anyone—but it can be even more challenging when things like communication and social interaction, core characteristics of a successful relationship, are compromised. In these interviews, we meet Dave and Lindsey, who share their experiences flirting and falling in love.

The full film is streaming on the PBS video player until April 10, 2016. For more information about the documentary, visit the Independent Lens website.
