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
“Aspie Seeks Love is as much a critique of American dating culture as it is a portrait of high-functioning autism.” -SALON
“...engaging, funny, thought provoking and emotive.” -Huffington Post

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.
