Aspie Seeks Love is…
“a refreshing, moving, and frequently awkwardly sublime exploration of one person’s search for self-understanding and shared meaning….Like American Movie or Crumb” - VICE
“engaging, funny, thought provoking and emotive…You will never view the need for human relationships…in quite the same way again.” -Huffington Post
“a parable about loneliness — a condition which afflicts everyone at some point in their lives…Therein lies the greatness of Aspie Seeks Love” - SALON

ASPIE SEEKS LOVE follows a fearless outsider who has been searching for love longer than many of us have been alive. David Matthews has spent the past twenty years posting personal ad fliers to telephone poles seeking love – fliers that double as art pieces featuring witty, humorous prose, pop culture references, and suave photos of the artist. He wasn’t diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome until age forty-one when his entire life changed, including his strategy for winning the love of women and achieving his artistic dreams.
