Anyone who's autistic and has children?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone out there with autism or someone who know's someone with autism could answer this question, As me and my friends get older I notice my one friend always is kind of the guy that everyone likes, but never dates, I get lots of dates so I try to help him out on how to get one, I read up and I always see that they've gotten girlfriends, but I was wondering if any of them ever got something serious and had some kids, please I'm getting worried, he's 18 now and he's never had a girlfriend. he's turned out to be quite social, so does he need to get out more and meet new people or something please help.

I'm sure there is. And I may not be autistic but what's wrong with being 18 and never having had a girlfriend? I'm 18 and I've never had a girlfriend. Is something wrong with me then??

Be his friend, and let him live his own life, he will in his own sweet time find his own relationships. Don't worry.

It's very possible for someone with Autism to have a serious relationship, and eventually get marred. It's more likely for someone with HFA, though. Perhaps he just hasn't met anyone he would consider his "soul mate" yet.
