"I remember being on the ground looking at him and not angry, I just thought" Huh ". Lotta? Huh? Moments, you know?"

She said, "Once he was diagnosed, I realized how funny it was because all the features that make it clear he's on the spectrum are all the reasons why I fell madly in love with him.
"That's the truth, he says whatever is on his mind, he keeps it so real, he does not care about social norms or what you expect him to say or do."
