Meet Ruth & Thomas in Netflix's 'Love on the Spectrum' Sneak Peek (VIDEO)
Finding love is difficult for anyone, but for young adults on the autism spectrum, the dating can be even more complicated.
In Netflix's upcoming docuseries, premiering Wednesday, July 22, those challenges are depicted as singles on the spectrum search for romance. Also featured in the show are established couples living with being on the spectrum.
One of those couples is Ruth and Thomas, who have been engaged for a year and a half and who are featured in the exclusive sneak peek clip above. The two serve as an inspiration to others as they, along with Jimmy and Sharnae who met three years prior to filming, will encourage the singles to seek similar connections.
In the engaging sneak peek, Ruth opens up about herself, revealing she's 22 and her pet snake Cleopatra "helps me stay calm." The commentary soon turns silly once the filmmaker behind the scenes asks for Ruth to describe her perfect partner.
"My ideal partner would be a blondie who's a big cuddler. He's also needs to be able to OK with my quirks," she continues before motioning to her fiancé Thomas, who joins her in frame.
Thomas details that they've been together for four years, noting, "I think we do alright together." See their sweet interaction in the clip above and don't miss their story when Love on the Spectrum debuts this week on Netflix.
