In a relationship with this guy I suspect is on the autism spectrum. I notice he is prone to zoning out a lot, especially when watching tv, his mouth gapes and looks completely out of it, sometimes his brows will raise or furrow and be frozen like that whole watching tv. Is this autism behavior?

      @Toff I have watched TV with many many people. I'm hearing this is normal for anybody, but if thats the case, wouldn't I have witnessed it before? I'm not trying to be rude. Just wanting to know more.

      Cognitive dissonance happens to both communities. In the disability community, and especially on the spectrum, it looks different than in neurotypicals.

        @Redvelninja do you mean dissociation? I can't see any example of cognitive dissonance mentioned in this post /lh

          @Finleaf I was saying that it's what it sounded like to me.

      Lots of people do this or so I've seemed to notice, both neurotypical AND neurodivergent ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… I definitely do that but I'm not on the spectrum ๐Ÿ˜…

        @lifeismid your profile says you have ASD, or is that just to learn more info like me.
