Dating classmate

Sam (Keir Gilchrist) is a senior in high school, who takes regular classes and has an after-school job at an electronics store, where he is friends with his nerdy coworker Zahid (Nik Dodani).

If there's one thing I know for certain about every guy out there, its that he has a certain "type" of woman he prefers over others.The autistic community has been waiting a long time for books, movies, and TV shows that show us as people, rather than plot devices, and while it’s slow-going, we’re gradually moving in that direction.The change in how autism and dating are portrayed onscreen is a great start.I’m not saying autistic people I like Sam, because he’s such a regular guy and feels so refreshingly human. Whereas other autistic characters on television seem to be almost entirely absorbed in one specific focus—whether that’s physics or detective work—and don’t even try to look for love, Sam has been proactive about having at least a little bit of a love life in his teens and early twenties.I’d tune in next season, if there is one, to see if he’s successful.
