Aussies Praise Love On The Spectrum After Double Episode Finale

Aussies have witnessed the finale of Love on the Spectrum season two after a double episode aired last night on the ABC.

We were all taken on a heartwarming, beautiful, and emotional rollercoaster ride as the people on the show made their feelings known to their dates or partners.

Audiences were treated to a wedding when Jimmy and Shanae tied the knot in front of family and friends following a trip to America.

People absolutely lost it when the vows were read out.

"My first vow is to love you for who you are. Autism is beautiful when you are autistic. I vow to never judge you or myself for being us," Jimmy said to his blushing bride.

"I'm not sure when to end my vows so I will not. I vow to keep making vows until we die. Because we are special and worth it. See ya later."

The crowd favourite, Michael, was anxious as he was invited to meet his date's parents for the first time.

While he was incredibly nervous, they managed to find common ground while talking about European culture. He was also praised for asking for consent with Heather multiple times; with many viewers saying other men could take a lesson or two from him.

Mark sadly only saw friendship in his match and had a difficult but honest conversation, while Ronan gave everyone the news they were waiting for when the finale ended.

The show said: "Ronan and Katie's love story is still going strong. Wishes really can come true!"

People across the country flocked to Twitter to praise the show for documenting how people on the spectrum find love and navigate relationships and dating.

The reality TV programme is kind of like First Dates but is purely for people who are on the autism spectrum.

The participants get taught by relationship expert Jodi Rogers how to approach dating scenarios, what to do on a date, how to ask someone out and the proper etiquette.

The series also explores each person's life, how their autism affects them, and what they're looking for in a potential partner. Then they're matched up with someone and we get to see what happens.

While it might sound like it's an invasive and intrusive TV show, Love on the Spectrum gives people a really good insight into the way people with autism deal with love, relationships, feelings, emotions and other aspects related to dating.

The programme debuted in 2019 on the ABC before the first season was picked up by Netflix and broadcast around the country again.
