* Try not to give any plastic toys to your gerbils. Gerbils need to chew on something to wear down their teeth but if they chew on the plastic it might make them sick. Cardboard toilet paper rolls are great tunnels and chew toys for gerbils. Avoid plastic hamster cages because they might chew through them and escape.

Grow Up and Get a Life

Line 1: Line 1:
Do you feel yourself growing older and yet falling behind the on the path you thought were on? Maybe you feel like you don't have a path at all, but are just floating through life? Instead of beating yourself up for not acting as you think you should, look at this feeling as a wake up call. Begin to make changes in your life that put you on a path of your choosing.

[[Category:Emotional Health and Well Being]]
+
== Steps ==
+
=== Discovering Yourself ===
+
#Discover your talents. If you're feeling inadequate or immature, it probably stems from not finding and pursuing your true talents. Part of becoming an adult, in this sense, is reaching a degree of independence. Start by trying several jobs or activities to find what you're naturally skilled at. For example, you might volunteer at a hospital and discover that you're great at working with people or handling difficult situations. This might lead you to pursue a career that's people-oriented.[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 1 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#*Studies suggests that the people who are happiest with their lives find their natural talents and pursue them.<ref>Bélanger, J. J., Pierro, A., Kruglanski, A. W., Vallerand, R. J., De Carlo, N., & Falco, A. (2015). On feeling good at work: the role of regulatory mode and passion in psychological adjustment. Journal of Applied Social Psychology, 45(6), 319–329. http://doi.org/10.1111/jasp.12298</ref> This is more important than choosing a career based on popularity or income.<ref>Kim, J., Heo, J., Lee, I. H., & Kim, J. (2014). Predicting Personal Growth and Happiness by Using Serious Leisure Model. Social Indicators Research, 122(1), 147–157. http://doi.org/10.1007/s11205-014-0680-0</ref>
+
#Recognize that your life is unique. Since no two people ever follow the exact same life path, your own development as a person will be unique. This can be difficult to appreciate since people live in communities and societies that often have expectations and age-related milestones. For example, your society might expect you to get an education, find a job, and start a family, in that order. Or, you might be expected to care for a family member instead of starting off on your own.[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 2 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#* It can be hard to know what to do when social expectations conflict with what you'd like to do with your life. Remember that research suggests that those who are happiest with their lives aren't necessarily those who chose their career path based upon its prestige.<ref>Kim, J., Heo, J., Lee, I. H., & Kim, J. (2014). Predicting Personal Growth and Happiness by Using Serious Leisure Model. Social Indicators Research, 122(1), 147–157. http://doi.org/10.1007/s11205-014-0680-0</ref>
+
#Figure out what you're passionate about. Find which activities, people, or things make you act with the most enthusiasm and passion. This will help you feel more independent and competent in your daily life. Avoid simply acting on an impulse. Instead, give some thought to what you're already motivated by and learn to use these abilities.<ref>http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/219709</ref>[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 3 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#* For example, you may realize that you're passionate about teaching others. Use this knowledge to look for opportunities to use that enthusiasm. You may tutor classmates, teach in a school, or go to school to become an educator.
+
#Think about what makes you happy. Start by making a list of as many happy situations you can remember. Write down as many details regarding the events as you can remember. A list will help you figure out what it was about these situations that made you happy or energetic. You may notice that you were with the same few people. Or, maybe you found that you enjoy figuring out challenges. Since different things make different people happy, it's important that you know what you enjoy.<ref>http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/27/gretchen-rubin-happiness_n_6008526.html</ref>[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 4 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#*For example, your list might have something like playing video games, playing the drums, or painting. This might lead you to realize that you're happiest when you're working with your hands.
+
#Become independent. This is especially true if you're a young adult, relying on your parents to support you. Take steps to take care of yourself and your needs. This might mean getting a job to support yourself financially. Or, if you notice you're lonely, schedule time with friends to get some company.<ref>http://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2014/01/08/6-ways-to-become-more-independent-less-codependent/</ref>[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 5 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#* Avoid relying on others to take care of you and look after your needs. Part of growing up is recognizing that you are the one that's responsible for you.
+
#* Once you're supporting yourself, it will become easier to make your own decisions and stand by them.
+
#Make your own decisions. While you're growing up, others often make all your decisions for you, be they major or minor ones. Part of becoming your own person is moving to make your own choices. You might start with smaller choices, like which classes to sign up for in school or where you want to eat. Gradually, start making larger life decisions for yourself.<ref>http://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2014/01/08/6-ways-to-become-more-independent-less-codependent/</ref>[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 6 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#*For example, if you're unhappy in your job, you can decide to quit or change careers. Or, if you're tired of living with your parents or a roommate, you can decide to move out on your own.
+
 
+
=== Changing Your Life ===
+
#Look opportunities to foster your talents and interests. Once you know what makes you passionate and happy, look for jobs or volunteer opportunities. For example, if you realize you've always enjoyed talking to your grandparents, you might try to find work with an organization that assists the elderly in some capacity. Or, if you're interested in video games, you could look into becoming a computer programmer or video game designer.[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 7 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#* Look for opportunities that will make you happy in the long term. Ask yourself where you see yourself in five or ten years. Then, consider whether job or volunteer offers fit into that picture.<ref>http://www.huffingtonpost.com/heidi-grant-halvorson-phd/achieving-goals_b_3343683.html</ref>
+
#Use your passion to connect with others. Discovering yourself is an important part of growing up and creating your own life, but you need to include others too. Research has shown that when you network with others about your passions, your passions are supported or enhanced.<ref>Jetten, J., Haslam, C., & Haslam, A., S. (2012). The Social Cure: Identity, Health and Well-Being. Psychology Press.</ref> Regardless of what your passions are, you can find a local or digital community that share similar interests. You may even find that networking creates job opportunities that allow you to focus entirely on your interests.[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 8 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#* For example, if you're motivated to woodwork, you might look for a local group that meets to share a workshop. They may be able to offer you advice on honing your skill and could even tell you about opportunities to sell your work.
+
#Take care of yourself. Part of growing up is developing strategies for self-care. This means being able to respect yourself and handle your emotional and physical needs. This way, you won't be overly dependent on others.<ref>https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-legacy-distorted-love/201302/is-self-care-selfish</ref> For example, you should be eating a healthy diet, maintaining good physical health, getting enough rest, and creating respectful relationships.<ref>http://www.uky.edu/StudentAffairs/VIPCenter/downloads/self%20care%20defined.pdf</ref>[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 9 Version 2.jpg|center]]
+
#*You'll also need to learn how to manage your desires and be happy without interfering with people who want to be left alone. For example, if you feel compelled to repair a relationship with a family member, but are refused, you'll need to learn how to move on without fulfilling that need.
+
#Experiment with routines and small changes. Create a daily routine, even if it's just a few simple acts, like showering when you wake up or making your own breakfast. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming when you try to change everything all at once.<ref>http://blogs.psychcentral.com/two-minds/2015/05/how-to-change-your-life-one-small-step-at-a-time/</ref> Start with those elements of your life over which you clearly have the most control. For example, you might try rearranging the furniture in your home, changing your hairstyle or attire, or maybe even getting in the habit of going on a walk around your neighborhood everyday.[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 10.jpg|center]]
+
#* If you want even more structure, sit down and write out everything you plan to do the next day and the time you'd like it done by. This will give you some sense of control over the changes in your life.
+
#Get an education. The right kind of education can improve your life in many areas. You might make more money, learn more about yourself, expand your social network, and be more understanding of others.<ref>http://www.globalpartnership.org/education/the-benefits-of-education</ref> There are plenty of educational levels and opportunities available to you. Choose a program based on your interests, your finances, and your commitment to an educational program.[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 11.jpg|center]]
+
#*For example, you could attend a vocational program to learn a trade, get a 2-year associate's degree, get a 4-year bachelor's degree in a field of your choice, or even go on to graduate school.
+
#Start a nurturing relationship. Whether you're looking for a romantic relationship or a friendly one based on mutual respect, relationships can enrich your life. Build a solid relationship through open communication, honesty, and dedication. Making a meaningful relationship won't happen overnight. Invest in the relationship by working through disagreements or rough situations, which shows you're in a mature relationship.<ref>https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/emotional-fitness/201205/10-ways-nurture-your-relationship</ref>[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 12.jpg|center]]
+
#* Make sure you're available to the other person. If you're only there for the other person when it's convenient for you, the relationship isn't making you a stronger person, nor is it healthy for the other person.
+
#Look for job or volunteer opportunities. Chances are, you'll need to support yourself somehow. Find a job that challenges you, fulfills you, and that you enjoy. Realize that you may need to try several jobs before you find one that you really connect with. If you're not looking for a job, you'll still need something meaningful to fill your time. Look for volunteering opportunities within your community.[[Image:Grow Up and Get a Life Step 13.jpg|center]]
+
#* Volunteering is a great way to learn about yourself, people in your community who need help, and pick up new skills.<ref>http://www.helpguide.org/articles/work-career/volunteering-and-its-surprising-benefits.htm</ref> It can make you feel more fulfilled and improve your social skills.
+

+
 
+
 
+
== Tips ==
+
*Allow your passion to spill over into other activities during your daily life. From doing chores around the house to cooking breakfast, you can learn to find purpose in many minor activities once you start to feel more competent in something you enjoy doing.

Managing emotional and physical pain is the most difficult part of end-of-life care. You can learn to face the worst, when it comes, with dignity and grace. Make the necessary arrangements ahead of time and make the most of the time you have left.
 +
 
 +
'''Note''': This article covers end-of-life care. If you're struggling with suicidal thoughts, try [[Convince Yourself Not to Commit Suicide|this article]] or call 800-273-TALK, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, if you're in the United States. If you're in a different country, please call your nation's suicide prevention hotline immediately.
 +
[[Category:Death Funerals and Bereavement]]
 +
 
 +
== Steps ==
 +
===Managing Pain===
 +
#Talk to your doctor about your pain management options. It's important to make your physical comfort a high priority in end-of-life care. Depending on your condition, you may be taking a variety of medications, or undergoing a variety of different procedures, so it's important to discuss all treatment options with your doctor and ensure your comfort is provided in addition to these considerations.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 1 Version 4.jpg|center]]
 +
#*Morphine is commonly prescribed to terminal patients, sometimes on a constant need-basis. While there's some debate about whether or not morphine may shorten your life span, it's efficacy as a powerful pain-reliever is proven. If you're in serious pain, talk to your doctor about the option.<ref>http://www.nia.nih.gov/health/publication/end-life-helping-comfort-and-care/providing-comfort-end-life</ref>
 +
#*In some cases, it may be appropriate to pursue additional non-traditional methods of pain management, like holistic medicine, medical marijuana, or other non-western treatments. As long as these treatments don't get in the way of other care you're receiving, it's likely they'll be approved by your doctor, and might be worth a shot.<ref>http://www.caringinfo.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3510</ref>
 +
#Be at home as much as possible. While not everyone has the luxury of paying for home palliative care, you should think about what will bring you the most comfort and peace in your particular situation. There may be more help available in a hospital but you may feel more comforted and peaceful in your own home.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 2 Version 4.jpg|center]]
 +
#*If you're able to leave the hospital, try to get out as much as possible. Even going for short walks can help to get away from the beeping of hospital machines and be a nice change of pace.
 +
#Address the symptoms of dyspnea quickly. Dyspnea, a general term for end-of-life breathing difficulties, can affect your ability to comfortably communicate, leading to frustration and discomfort. It's something you can address and care for yourself, with some simple techniques.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 3 Version 4.jpg|center]]
 +
#*Keep the head of your bed raised and keep the window open, if possible, to keep fresh air circulating as much as possible.
 +
#*Depending on your condition, it may also be recommended to use a vaporizer, or to have additional oxygen supplied directly, through the nose.
 +
#*Sometimes, fluid collection in the throat can result in ragged breathing, which can be aided by turning to one side, or by a quick clearing procedure your doctor can perform.
 +
#Address skin problems. Facial dryness and irritation from spending lots of time in a prone position can be an unnecessary discomfort in end-of-life scenarios. As we get older, skin problems become more significant, making them important to address swiftly.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 4 Version 4.jpg|center]]
 +
#*Keep your skin as clean and moisturized as possible. Use lip balm and non-alcoholic moisturizing lotions to keep chapped skin softened. Sometimes damp cloths and ice chips can also be effective at soothing dry skin or cotton mouth.
 +
#*Sometimes called "bed sores," pressure ulcers can result from prolonged time in a prone position. Watch carefully for discolored spots on the heels, hips, lower back, and neck. Turn from side and back every few hours to help prevent these sores, or try putting a foam pad under sensitive spots to reduce pressure.
 +
#Try to manage your energy levels. The routine of being in the hospital will take a toll on anyone, and the constant blood pressure checks and IV drip can make it difficult to sleep. Be honest about your energy levels, any nausea, or temperature sensitivity you're experiencing to get as much rest to be as energetic as possible.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 5 Version 4.jpg|center]]
 +
#*Occasionally, in end-of-life scenarios, medical staff will discontinue these types of routines, when they become unnecessary. This can make it much easier to relax and get the rest you need to stay energetic and somewhat active.
 +
#Ask questions and stay informed. It can get quickly overwhelming, confusing, and frustrating to be in the hospital and feel like you're not in control of your own life anymore. It can be very helpful emotionally to stay as informed as possible by using your doctor questions regularly. Try to ask these types of questions to the doctor in charge:[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 6 Version 4.jpg|center]]
 +
#*What's the next course of action?
 +
#*Why do you recommend this test or treatment?
 +
#*Will this make me more comfortable, or less?
 +
#*Will this speed up or slow down the process?
 +
#*What does the timetable for this look like?
 +
=== Making Arrangements ===
 +
#[[Write a Living Will|Prepare an advance directive]]. An advance directive is basically just a written document or a series of documents explaining what you want to have happen during your end-of-life care. It may outline a variety of topics, including your wishes for your care, should you become incapacitated, as well as naming proxies and a power of attorney.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 7 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*These documents will need to be drawn up by attorneys and notarized. These aren't likely things that you'll want to have to spend a lot of time dealing with yourself, so it's common to delegate these tasks to others.
 +
#[[Do Estate Planning|Prepare for the distribution of your estate]]. There's a lot of comfort in knowing that you've taken care of everything ahead of time and haven't left big or stressful decisions to be made after you're gone. If you're up to it, it's important to have legal documents drawn up..[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 8 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*A living will describes the type of healthcare you hope to receive and whether or not you'd like to remain on life support, and under what circumstances, should you become incapacitated and unable to make your own decisions. Living wills can be prepared by attorneys and should be prepared ahead of time.
 +
#*Last wills are designed to designate property to beneficiaries, assign guardians for minor children, and elucidate any last wishes. This is somewhat different than a living trust, which will transfer property immediately, as opposed to after your death.<ref>http://www.legalzoom.com/wills-estate-planning/summary-compare-wills.html</ref>
 +
#[[Write Your Own Health Care Proxy|Consider naming a health-care proxy]]. In some cases, it may be good for you to delegate these responsibilities instead to a proxy, in the event that you're unwilling or incapable of making these decisions for yourself. This is often an adult-aged child or spouse, who will be tasked with making choices regarding your health care as things progress.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 9 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#[[Write a Medical Power of Attorney|Consider naming a health care power of attorney, if necessary]]. In some cases, it may be difficult to choose or assign proxy responsibilities to a private party, and you may wish instead to assign them to an attorney. This is extremely common and can be a relatively stress-free way of turning over technical responsibilities to someone else, allowing you to deal with your own comfort and emotional responsibilities.<ref>http://www.aarp.org/relationships/grief-loss/info-02-2012/top-five-regrets-of-the-dying.2.html</ref>[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 10 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*A health care power of attorney is different than a general power of attorney, which provides for financial assistance after death. While both of these may be appropriate options, it's important to distinguish between them.<ref>http://www.nia.nih.gov/health/publication/end-life-helping-comfort-and-care/planning-end-life-care-decisions</ref>
 +
#[[Plan Your Own Funeral|Make arrangements for your remains]]. Though it may be slightly unnerving, it's important to decide what you want to happen to your body after you die. There are many options and considerations, depending on your culture and religious background.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 11 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*If you want a funeral, or religious ritual to be performed after your death, you may want to arrange the ceremony yourself, or delegate the responsibility to a loved one. Make the arrangements in terms of churches, funeral homes, if it helps you to find closure.
 +
#*If you want to be buried, decide where you want to be buried and which family members you want to be buried near, if you haven't made those decisions already. Secure a burial plot by making a down payment, and make arrangements with a funeral home in your area, if necessary.
 +
#*If you'd like your body to be donated, make sure your donor status is up to date and accurate, according to your wishes. Contact the university or foundation to which you want your remains donated and make the necessary arrangements.
 +
===Making the Most of Your Last Days===
 +
#Do what feels natural. There's no right or wrong way to die. For some people, it may be desirable to spend as much time with friends and family as possible, while others may find comfort in solitude, choosing to face things alone. Some people might want to kick up their heels and make the most of the last days, while others may want to go about the same basic routine.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 12 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*Don't be afraid to have fun, or to spend your time laughing. Nowhere does it say that the end of life is supposed to be a somber affair. If you want to do nothing more than watch your favorite football team and joke with your relatives, do so.
 +
#*It's your life. Surround yourself with the things and the people that you want to be surrounded with. Make your happiness, comfort, and peace your priority.<ref>http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2011/mar/26/advice-from-the-dying-burkeman</ref>
 +
#Consider pulling away from your work responsibilities. Few people receive a terminal diagnosis and wish they'd spent more time at the office, and one of the most common near-death regrets is of working too much and missing out. Try not to spend the time you have left, if there isn't much, doing something you don't want to be doing.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 13 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*It's unlikely you'll be making a marked financial difference for your family in a short amount of time, so focus on what will make a difference: addressing the emotional needs of yourself and your family.
 +
#*Alternatively, some people may find energy and comfort in going about the routine of work, especially if you're feeling physically strong enough to do so. If it feels natural and reassuring to keep working, do it. 
 +
#Meet with friends and loved ones. One of the biggest regrets those who are facing death express is not staying in touch with old friends and relatives. Remedy this by taking the opportunity to spend a little time with them, one-on-one if possible, and catch up.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 14 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*You don't have to talk about what you're going through if you don't want to. Talk about your past, or focus on today. try to keep things as positive as you want them to be.
 +
#*If you want to open up, do so. Express what you're going through and release some of the grief you're experiencing with people you trust.
 +
#*Even if you don't have much energy for laughter or conversation, just having them sit by your side can bring you worlds of comfort.
 +
#*Depending on your family situation, it might be easier to meet with people in big shifts, seeing whole families at once, or you may prefer focusing on individual meetings. These have a tendency to help slow down time, focusing on quality, rather than quantity. This can be a great way of maximizing the time you have left.
 +
#Focus on unwinding your relationships. It's common for those near death to want to uncomplicate complicated relationships. This can mean a variety of things, but it generally means trying to resolve disputes and go forward less burdened.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 15 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*Make an effort to end any fights, arguments, or misunderstandings so that you can move forward. You shouldn't engage in arguments and keep fighting, but rather, agree to disagree when necessary and end your relationships on a good note.
 +
#*While you probably can't be around the people you care about all of the time, you can plan to see them in shifts, so that you rarely feel alone.
 +
#*If you can't see your loved ones in person, making a phone call to someone you care about can make a difference as well.
 +
#Decide how much you want to reveal. If your health situation is unknown to your friends and family, you may elect to let everyone know what's going on and keep them up to date, or you may prefer keeping things private. There are advantages and disadvantages to each choice, and it's something you'll have to decide for yourself.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 16 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*Letting people know can help you get closure and feel ready to move on. If you want to grieve together, open up and let your friends family in. You can tell them individually to make it feel more personal, and tell only those people that you really care about, or make it more public. This can make it difficult to avoid the issue and focus on lighter subjects over the next weeks and months, though, which is a negative for many people.
 +
#*Keeping your situation private can help to maintain your dignity and privacy, a desirable thing for many people. While this might make it difficult to share and grieve together, if you feel like this is something you want to take on alone, you might consider keeping it private.
 +
#Try keeping things as light as possible. Your final days probably shouldn't be spent pouring over Nietzsche and contemplating the void, unless you're the sort of person who finds pleasure in these things. Let yourself experience pleasure. Pour yourself a glass of whiskey, watch the sunset, sit with an old friend. Live your life.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 17 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*When you face death, you don't have to make an extra effort to come to terms with it. It will come to terms with you. Instead, use the time you have left to enjoy the people and things you enjoy, not to focus on death.
 +
#Be open with what you want from others. One thing you may have to deal with is the fact that the people around you are having trouble coping with your death. They may look even more upset, hurt, and emotional than you feel. try to be as honest as seems kind with your family, when discussing your feelings and desires.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 18 Version 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#*Though you may want nothing more from them than comfort, optimism, and support, you may find that they will be having trouble in their own grief. That's perfectly natural. Accept that people are doing their best and that they'll need a break sometimes, too. Try your best not to be angry or disappointed at how they're reacting.
 +
#*You may find that some of your loved ones are showing little emotion at all. Don't ever think that this means that they don't care. It just means that they are dealing with your health quietly, in their own way, and that they're trying not to upset you with how they feel.
 +
#Talk to a religious advisor, if necessary. Talking to your pastor, rabbi, or other religious leader can help you feel like you're less alone in the world and that there's a path laid out for you. Talking to religious friends, reading religious scriptures, or praying can help you find peace. If you're well enough to attend your church, mosque, or synagogue, you can also find peace by spending more time with people in your religious community.[[Image:Die Peacefully Step 19 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#*However, if you don't subscribe to a religion, don't feel compelled to change your mind and to believe in the afterlife after all if that's not really true to who you are. End your life as you've lived it.
 +
#Don't end your life prematurely. If you're looking for a way to die peacefully because you want to end your life, then you should seek help immediately. You should talk to a trusted friend or family member, check yourself into a hospital, and make an effort not to be alone at any cost. You may feel like you have no better option than to end your life, but getting help will make you see that you'll have plenty to live for and a bright future ahead of you. If you want to die peacefully, then you should make the most of your life while you can. [[Image:Help-Someone-Who-Is-Thinking-About-Committing-Suicide-Step-15.jpg]]
 +
#*If you're thinking about suicide and need immediate help, please call 800-273-TALK, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, if you're in the United States. If you're in a different country, please call your nation's suicide prevention hotline ASAP.

Everyone deserves a life full of love. If you are autistic, you may find it particularly difficult to overcome shyness, follow the dating norms of neurotypicals, and overcome the social stigma of autism. However, with perseverance and practice, anyone can have a successful dating life and find a happy partnership with someone who understand what autism really is and what it is not and knows that everyone is unique.<ref>http://autisticadvocacy.org/home/about-asan/about-autism/</ref><ref>http://www.autismacceptancemonth.com/what-is-autism/</ref>

==Steps==
+
===Meeting a Potential Girlfriend===
+
#Meet someone through common interests. One of the simplest way to find potential partners is connecting with people through things you both like to do.<ref>https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/spectrum-solutions/201410/dating-and-autism-free-tips</ref>[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 1.jpg|center]]
+
#* This gives you a built-in conversation starter that is a good foundation for a date.
+
#* Try finding groups doing things you enjoy through websites like [http://www.meetup.com Meetup] or by taking a local class.
+
#* Think about social activities you already attend. Do you know anyone that you might be interested in developing a relationship with?
+
#* Think unconventionally. Social settings don't have to be physical. Video games, like Minecraft, can be great ways to build community and meet people with similar interests without the pressure of a face-to-face first interaction.<ref>http://www.aspergerexperts.com/go/what-minecraft-means/</ref>
+
#Practice reading neurotypical social cues, if the woman you are pursuing is neurotypical. Although, ultimately, you want to find someone who accepts your communication style, initially you may need to learn to flirt and understand how to tell if someone is interested.<ref>http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/08/dating-on-the-autism-spectrum/278340/</ref>[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 2.jpg|center]]
+
#* Watch television shows and movies to get an idea of these cues, but know that these depictions aren't always realistic.
+
#* Make or feign eye contact for a few seconds, then break it. Try to notice if she seems to be making eye contact with you, as this may mean she likes you.
+
#* Smile slightly. You should smile at the person you like, but make it a small smile, and turn away after a few seconds.
+
#* Act confident. Even when you're nervous about whether someone likes you, act like you aren't nervous at all.
+
#Find a mentor. Ask a friend, relative, or teacher to help you get ready to date. Pick a friend who has good experience in the dating world. If you're anxious about your conversation skills, you can role-play, or even do a practice date.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 3.jpg|center]]
+
#* Ask your mentor what they look for in a partner. What are you doing that they would find odd on a date? What would they like? Tell them you appreciate their honesty.
+
#* It might help to keep a notebook of dating tips.
+
#Consider online dating. When you are autistic, it is often easier to express your feelings in writing than in person. Online dating can be a way to meet like-minded people in an environment that is safe and structured.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 4.jpg|center]]
+
#* Know what you want in a relationship. Are you looking for something casual or long term? Be clear about this with yourself so you know how to proceed. Different dating sites suit different needs.
+
#* Decide what dating site is best for you. If you want, there are even [http://www.datingadvice.com/online-dating/spectrum-singles-the-go-to-dating-site-for-people-on-the-autism-spectrum websites] that match up people on the autism spectrum who would be compatible with each other. This can be a good way to ease some of the stress of reading neurotypical dating cues.
+
#Maintain your appearance. When you start dating, you want to make sure you look your best.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 5.jpg|center]]
+
#* Bathe regularly and trim your hair and facial hair (if you have any).
+
#* Wear clothes that are clean, ironed, and well-fitting. Don't be afraid to ask a fashion-conscious friend or family member to go shopping with you. They can pick out clothes that enhance your unique attractiveness.
+
===Getting to Know Someone===
+
#Start subtle. When you first [[Ask Someone Out|ask someone out]] on a date, you want to seem casual so that you don't come across too formally.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 6.jpg|center]]
+
#* Simply say something like "Hey would you like to go see a movie on Saturday?"
+
#* Texting or online chat can be a great way to send your initial invitation. Ask your mentor to look over your message before you send it.
+
#Plan out the date. This will help ease your nerves, and let you know what to expect on your date.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 7.jpg|center]]
+
#* Don't feel like you have to pick a typical first date if you don't want to.<ref>http://galadarling.com/article/very-definitely-not-dinner-a-movie-50-alternative-first-date-ideas/</ref> A bar might be too loud, and going to dinner might put too much pressure on small talk.
+
#* Try an activity-based date. For example, if you like to bowl, invite your date to go bowling with you. When there are gaps in the conversation, you'll be able to talk about your game. If you enjoy art, take her to an art museum. You'll be able to talk about the art together, and the setting makes a little silence more acceptable.
+
#* Write down the plan for your date. Your date will most likely appreciate the initiative you took to plan it all out and find it romantic.
+
#[[Listen|Let her talk]]. When you're on date, make sure that you let your date talk at least half of the time. As you are listening, nod your head occasionally and interject small statements like "that's interesting" to let her know that you are actively listening.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 8.jpg|center]]
+
#* Ask open-ended questions, and if you ask yes or no questions, follow up with something open ended. For example, if you ask, "Do you have any brothers or sister?" and she says, "Yes, two older brothers," say something like, "Oh, what are they like?"
+
#* When your date asks you questions, don't be too short with your answers but don't take over the conversation, either.
+
#Find out her favorites. See what kinds of things she likes. What are her favorite movies, books, music, or games? What are her hobbies?[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 9.jpg|center]]
+
#* After she tells you her favorites, go home and check them out. Listen to her favorite song, or read her favorite book. This will give you a better idea of what she's like, and give you something to talk about on a second date.
+
#Accept rejection if it happens. It's painful, but remember that everyone goes through it at some point in life. Look around at people on the street. Are all of those people your type? Of course not. It doesn't mean anything is wrong with them; they just aren't right for you. Similarly, you might not be right for her, and that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you. [[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 10.jpg|center]]
+
#* If you are anxious about being rejected, try coming up with a response in advance for rejection, such as saying "Okay, see you around then," and walking away.<ref>https://www.carautismroadmap.org/romance-101-dating-for-adults-with-asd/</ref>
+
#*If you ask someone out online or with a written message, silence usually means "no." Don't respond further.
+
#* Don't give up after one rejection. Move on to someone else. Dating takes persistence. Being rejected just means that you two were a bad match. It doesn't have anything bad to say about you.
+
===Maintaining Your Relationship===
+
#[[Tell People You're Autistic|Explain your autism]]. When you feel comfortable, tell her about your disability, and explain how it affects you personally. If you're dating a neurotypical individual, you'll need to meet in the middle.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 11 (1).jpg|center]]
+
#* Be prepared for a few [[Answer Awkward Questions About Your Autism|awkward questions]]. Give honest, factual answers.
+
#* Relationships are about both partners seeking to understand each other. Encourage your girlfriend to use online resources such as Autism Acceptance Month, the Autism Women's Network, and WikiHow to find out more about the autism spectrum.
+
#* Show her that you can be an attentive partner, but sometimes social situations take a lot of effort for you.
+
#Keep boundaries clear. In any relationship, you need to have boundaries, both sexual and nonsexual, and autism can make reading cues like body language difficult.<ref>http://www.autismafter16.com/article/09-13-2011/social-life-spectrum</ref> Clearly and non-judgmentally communicate your boundaries to your partner, and ask her to do the same.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 12.jpg|center]]
+
#* Ask your partner to honestly tell you what makes her uncomfortable and what she would like you not to do in the relationship. Likewise, tell your partner what makes you uncomfortable, as she might not be aware that you don't like a small gesture from her.
+
#* It might help you both to write these things down on a piece of paper or in a message. It can be easier to come up with boundaries in writing, and you'll have them to refer back to later.
+
#Give a compassionate response over a pure honest one. When you're on the autism spectrum, you often value the truth and find it difficult to lie. This can be a good trait, but it may come across as too blunt in certain situations.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 13.jpg|center]]
+
#* Understand when it is best to give a small "white lie" so as not to not hurt your partner's feelings.
+
#*For example, if your girlfriend comes home with a new dress, puts it on, and asks you if it looks good, you should say, "yes," [[Be Honest when She Asks if an Outfit Makes Her Look Fat|even if you don't think so]].
+
#* Furthermore, understand that your partner won't always be blunt with you. This doesn't mean that you should tolerate blatant lies, but don't demand that your partner tell you every detail of her life.
+
#Check in with each other. If you have a difficult time expressing your feelings sometimes, it can be a good idea to have a regular check in session every week. This might be over coffee or dinner.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 14.jpg|center]]
+
#* Try having a set of questions you always ask. This can be a sweet ritual for you as a couple and a good way to plan staying in touch. It will make you both feel heard and valued.
+
#* An example set of questions could be:
+
#* What is something I did that made you happy this week?
+
#* What is something I did that made you sad this week?
+
#* What is something you would like us to do together next week?
+
#Make gestures of affection. Consciously think about things you can do to make your girlfriend smile.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 15.jpg|center]]
+
#* Keep a list in your phone of things your girlfriend likes. If she says one day she likes peonies and specific kind of chocolate, write it down.
+
#* Every so often, check that list in your phone. Go out and buy her peonies and chocolate for no reason at all.
+
#Write letters. No matter if you're on the autism spectrum or not, writing can be a great way to express how you feel to someone.[[Image:Get a Girlfriend When You're Autistic Step 16.jpg|center]]
+
#* Your letters can be hard copies or emails.
+
#* Write down the things you like about your partner, and let her read those things.
+
== Tips ==
+
*If you don't know if she's single, you can ask "So are you seeing anyone?" This is a common question that will tell you if she's available and hint that you might like her.
+
*Be quick to apologize if you upset her. Explain why you did what you did, and express that you're sorry you hurt her. Ask what you can do to make it up to her and avoid doing it again. This communicates that you care about her, and it's the fastest path to forgiveness.
+
*If she responds badly to hearing about your autism, don't take it personally. The problem is her ignorance; you deserve someone who respects who you are.
+
 
+
== Warnings ==
+
*If she seems disinterested or asks you to back off, then back off without question.
