Dani Bowman On Love On The Spectrum
After a breakout success of the Australian docuseries Love on the Spectrum, the franchise aired its first American version on May 18, 2022, and it saw Dani Bowman amongst other participants, with high hopes of finding the perfect partner.
However, being on the autism spectrum means a lot of specificities. She wanted someone kind, who respected her boundaries, somebody very diligent in his work, and very loyal. “We are independent, but at the same time depend on one another,” she explained.
Also, she wanted her first date to be phone-free. “We would engage and talk about our interests and talk about how our businesses are going and what are our dreams and goals of going on a date,” she shared.
Joining Dani this season were her co-stars — Abbey, Steve, Subodh, James, and Kaelynn.
All excited for the premiere Dani took it to her IG on May 5 to write, “It’s finally out!!! I’m on @netflix ‘s “Love On the Spectrum U.S.” Finally I can talk about it! Yay!! The suspense was killing me!”
It seems that Dani kept the filming a secret for over 2 years. And when she finally was able to speak, she mentioned that the show was so respectful and caring to their need as they navigated the world of dating and relationships.

Dani Bowman was pursuing a possible relationship with Adan on Love on the Spectrum U.S. But it is unclear if she is still dating him now.

At the end of their date, they even shared a quick kiss. But as Dani got home, her thoughts changed. Realizing the kiss was uncomfortable and things were moving too fast, she started having doubts about Solomon.
However, she did agree to go on a second date and get to know Solomon better. Unfortunately, Solomon insisted on kissing her again, and that was when Dani realized that he definitely wasn’t the right person for her.

Dani Bowman Family
Dani Bowman didn’t exactly have the best childhood. She confessed that she was “the child that brought fear, pain, and tears to (her) parents’ eyes.” Though her dad was carefree and took her to his workshop and let her spend all day alone in a back room of his shop, her mother Myrna Vielma, tried hard to keep her out of trouble because she was so hyper.
“I would not sit still for 2 minutes. I would ignore them when they would call out my name. And would not look into their eyes and I did not talk till I was 5 or 6 years old,” Dani recalled.
So, after Dani’s mother tried her best to keep the family together, with no help from Dani’s dad whatsoever, she sent Dani to live with her aunt and uncle. And it was there where she learned she was autistic and they gave her all the love and care she deserved.
To this day, Dani is grateful to her aunt and uncle, Sandra Vielma and Patrick Eidemiller.
Besides then, Dani’s family members include Alfonso Lopez (uncle), Carolyn Rees (aunt), Destiny Dayna Lopez (cousin), and Hortensia Gonzoles (grandmother)
