  • I would date her, probably. I would also try to find out how serious her condition is and is likely to become in the future, provided she's willing to tell me. Some patients with autistic spectrum disorders actually improve with time.

    I am not sure that I could continue to date if she develops serious problems, requiring hospitalization, for instance. Not all people are ready to such lengths.

    If a person becomes seriously affected with a mental condition, she/he brings an enormous strain on his/her partner.

    If the condition is manageable, I can see no problem here.
