People were bowled over by a First Dates hopeful named Ketan who is living with autism

‘Ketan, you deserve your happy ending.’

LAST NIGHT, First Dates viewers were introduced to Ketan, a 31-year-old man who is looking for love and living with autism.

After giving an insight into his condition at the beginning of the segment, Ketan then explained that he has compiled a handy list of pros and cons to dating him.

Sure, who among us doesn’t have a similar one?

I’ve got a list of positives and negatives of dating me, as a result of my autism. Positives; stronger, quicker, smarter, can do the night shift if we have kids because I’ll probably be awake anyway. Negatives; will regularly wake you up at 4am for sex.

And sure, viewers were only mad about him.

Matched with Brodie, Ketan was quick to tell his date he had autism, which didn’t faze her – a reaction which seriously impressed him.

Took the autism bullet really well. Other people, it killed them off, but not you.

But unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be, with both parties happy to leave it at the first date.

We know, we were devastated too.

Twitter, however, clearly needs more of Ketan in their lives, with viewers saying he did trojan work on behalf of those living with autism.
