    Dont want to take up too much space on this subject but its possibly caused by PTSD. Now the embarrassing reason........ when i was about 9 or 10 my mother found out i had been playing "doctors & nurses with the girl next door. She took my trousers down gave me a good thrashing then made me have a bath. She then told me NEVER to do anything like that again....& i never have. I'm not saying this is the reason but it could be. In his book Brian Gilmartin says about 40 % of loveshys are aspergers sufferers.

    I think the link between autism and gynophobia would be, (if it exists) an indirect one.
    Autism and Feminism – Oolong – Medium
    This article explains why being autistic could make one a feminist. It's interesting, but it's a bit biased because women have expectations too and are not passive 'victims of the patriarchy'.
    Being autistic and suffering from expectations of women (strong, outgoing, etc), being manipulated (because being autistic makes it easier to be manipulated) can cause you to be afraid of women (or to hate them in some cases).
    The link between autism and fear of women is simply not being good at social stuff in general.

    As a teen, I recall experiencing a dilemma between modesty and having a sex drive. It didn't help that I was molested (by a man) and had attempted to molest a neighbor girl (around my age) once.

    What I thought to be modesty had actually been shame. Fear of being shameful interfered with any comfort in sexual pursuit.

    Since being born-again, I have learned the difference between modesty and shame (and had that shame taken away, to boot!). I got married at 21. I am also a guardian/caregiver of my 23yo daughter. Being a caregiver really presses the modesty envelope, but context keeps everything in perspective.

    There's a single old lady on wrong planet that I could introduce you to. If you still believe in possibilities.

    It is still better to meet them IRL, first, for a number of reasons.

    Meeting in real life reciprocates trust. This method is limiting in choices. Choice your poison but remember - fortune favors the bold.

    You can't gauge pheromones via the internet. (They are more important than you would expect.)

    Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts.

    Shortly before my (nerdy) dad died (at 80), he had a potential fourth wife hitting on him!

    That is going to limit your success, I believe.

    No but there is always trying. Always put your best foot forwards.

    I didn't lie. She's old. I just didn't know how old.
