Take yourself on a date. If there’s a place you spontaneously want to go, embrace your sudden and unexpected impulse to branch out from your autistic routine. By welcoming these unplanned decisions, I’ve done amazing things like gone alone to a new restaurant, fixed damage on my car, and gone for a solo two-hour hike. Even so, try not to follow an impulse that can’t be immediately gratified (like telling all your friends you’re down to plan a party that won’t take place for two weeks) or involves purchasing something big without thinking it through (like a new set of furniture).
