Dating awkward paul walker dating history

” I met Francesca Happe again a few years ago at The British Library, where we had coffee.I was working with Graeae, a theatre company with an aesthetic of disability, and I was interested in creating a play about what it meant to be in the borderland of autism — peripheral to the nucleus of autism, but nevertheless close enough to be affected.Sometimes I feared the mask would slip, that I would be discovered, but I seldom was — although sometimes in conversation, someone would develop a puzzled look on their face.My boyfriend called me “adorably awkward,” but in earlier years at school, my awkwardness had never been adorable.

“Adorably awkward,” I thought, beginning to embrace this new, if inaccurate, diagnosis, given by a boy who wanted me to be normal as much as I did.It was easier for people my age, particularly men, to see my weirdness as a trope, as opposed to a complex neurological condition. My current boyfriend understands that I can’t read body language all the time; that if he is annoyed he must state it verbally and calmly; and that clattering resentfully around a messy kitchen, say, will not pass on the message that it is my turn to clean, but simply asking me for help will.Also, he must tolerate my asking if he is angry when he is not.Still, as a nineteen-year-old, newly at University, I could for the first time in my life “pass” for normal, or neurotypical.I felt a bit like a fraud, but it was also exciting to move among my peers and feel, for the first time, fully accepted as one of them.
