Do women stop playing the game where they lose interest if you show it when you're older or is that just one of those things in life?

AFAIK that's not a thing.

I don't understand the finer points of social etiquette and on further examination it's not them, it's probably me. My transitions between attempting to subtly communicate something are probably extremely ham-fisted and cause people some discomfort. A lot of people have told me the way I move is too fast and it's unnerving and my expressions in socializing are probably the same. My mistake to lay the blame on someone else.

The 2-week ex introduced me to a nice guy. He affects a British accent a greaser persona. Has a girlfriend of a month that he's told me he loves and he still looks at me with big eyes. Not going to do anything with that until the girlfriend situation resolves itself or progresses further. He'd be excellent to have as a friend if we don't end up lovers.

Hung out with a couple who one of I knew from high school and some random guy from the bar. Fascinating to watch their dynamic with others (especially me) around. The girl of the pair being accidentally(?) flirty and the guy becoming subtly confrontational and uncomfortable with his body and manner but not his words. Managed to work the exchange of eye contact and body language enough that I don't think he has a significant problem with me though? Did get caught up in my own head about the recent break-up because of romantic subplots in the show we were watching. She became less interested the more uncomfortable I over-acted being, so maybe I should try that more often? I don't know what directions I was really communicating with via my postures though so it's possible I have a total misread on the situation.

Random guy from bar is an unknown variable and wears glasses so I can't quite tell if he has dead eyes, most of our conversations were across the room or in the dark. Seems alright so far.

Wondering if it's possible for me to have a fulfilling relationship with someone who isn't also on the spectrum. Neurotypical people always seem a little dull and unaware of their surroundings to me. Well-versed in the social dance but unobservant of everything else.

Is anyone truly neurotypical entirely, though? I don't think so. I think there's beauty in all facets.

Isn't it kind of axiomatic that "neurotypical" would mean people with a typical neurology? So someone could be entirely neurotypical?
