Guys, would you date a girl with special needs (I mean mild to moderate, such as mild autism/Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD/ADHD, Dyspraxia)?

I am a professional in this field and I support people with special needs who would like to find a relationship, job, develop themselves etc. I'm currently working on a project involving women with Asperger’s Syndrome/mild autism/other neurological conditions and I would like some general opinions about this from men.

    • Of course, that would be a bonus for you, as long as you had similar interests.

    • TheRiddler, there is no medication for Asperger’s Syndrome. It's a neurological difference. It would be the same as giving medication to a gay person to try and make them become straight!

    • I agree with the asker.

  • I voted B), there is an upper threshold to the weirdness that is tolerable. But then again, I am also weird, I am just not diagnosed with anything.

  • I know people with Asperger's syndrome. I wouldn't mind dating a girl with mild Asperger's.

    Every person with ADHD I've known has been annoying, though.

    I don't know about dyspraxia.

    • I'm talking about average. Not everyone with Asperger’s Syndrome is a genius! It's a huge misconception.

    • That's true most debilitating forms of autism makes them less intelligent, only high functioning aspergers are intellectual like myself i should add

  • Yes i would cause i got mild case of learning disability
    so it wouldn't be problem..

  • I had a friend who got diagnosed Asperger...

    I don't see why I would feel different simply because it was a woman this time around, so I see this as totally possible.

  • I voted C, being diagnosed with such a condition wouldn't stop me from wanting to date a girl if I liked her. However I guess it's possible that I may be less likely to like someone with such a condition.
