    Would you ever date an slightly autistic person?

    So it's something I'm curious about peoples' opinion on. I have autism and can function like everyone else, but have issues learning, fluently speaking, and socializing. At my school I'm never bullied or anything, but people see me a just a student rather than someone that can be a friend. It took 5 years before my current friends actually gave me a chance. No girl as ever taken an interest in me and I was simply wondering peoples opinions on the matter.

    P.S. I'm sorry if I was a little sketchy on the details. Writing is not my thing, but I'm sure you can all figure out what I'm trying to ask here.

    Depends on how weird they would be in my eyes. Have worked with one earlier in my life, he was just downright weird and creepy. Had no real idea of social rules.
    Close your eyes and smile.

    Yes, as long as i could still communicate with them effectively. Some people with autism are near perfectly normal, and few are genius's in some field.

    See, the problem is people associate people with some mental deficiency all the same. I have social rules but when people find out I have autism they treat me like I'm the plague or like I'm a small child.

    "Slightly" doesn't seem like a problem. If she was great in every other way (at least in my eyes) then why not.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    My cousin overall is quite a looker, but she has a migratory goiter and tourettes. Yay or nay?

    Meh, I don't associate everyone the same. I can accept people being different but when someone is completely unaware of when it's approriate to touch someone or where to to touch them when they don't know them very well(Like the guy I had to work with) then it just becomes downright creepy or how close to a person you can stand without causing discomfort.

    Aspergers is regarded as a highly functioning disorder in the Autism spectrum.
