Sweet Couple With Autism: "We're Even More Extraordinary Together"

Nico Morales and Latoya Jolly had a lot in common before they met each other: they both have Asperger's syndrome (a high-functioning type of autism), they were both pretty lonely, and they both had never kissed someone on the lips before. But after they met on Autisticdating.net, an online dating website specifically for those with autism, their lives would change forever.

While many people assume that those with autism don't want social relationships, Nico and Latoya are proving quite the opposite to be true, and in a video on CNN's Facebook page, the couple opens up about their feelings of loneliness before meeting each other.

"Honestly, when I first met Latoya, my first thought was, 'Be still my beating heart; that is the most beautiful woman I've ever seen in my life,'" Nico recalled in the video. "She just looked so amazing — her glasses were reflecting the moonlight, like a disco ball, she had the prettiest smile, and her cheeks were so rosy."

Dr. Paige M. Siper, chief psychologist at the Seaver Autism Center, explained that "Many individuals with autism do in fact want to have friendships and relationships with others, but lack the skills to do so effectively." It's really incredible that Nico and Latoya found love and happiness with one another.

"The best kind of relationship is a romantic friendship, and that is what we have," Nico said. "And while we're both amazing separately, we're even more extraordinary together. . . plus we both love pizza so that's an extra bonus."
