Would you date someone who has Asperger's Syndrome?

I have Asperger's, and I have a more severe case of it. I have a lot of trouble socializing, I tend to say the wrong/inappropriate things without realizing it, and just about everything else that comes with Asperger's. I'm not stupid, in fact I have an above average IQ. I'm currently in school to pursue a degree to become a forensic scientist. Like most people with Asperger's, I have one main interest that I'm obsessed with. My obsession is with science. Often the only thing that I want to talk about is science. I'm 19 and I've had 2 short term boyfriends in the past, but both left me because of my Asperger's. The first because he "didn't want to date a retard", which is very inaccurate since I have an above average IQ. The second left because he couldn't deal with certain aspects of my Asperger's, such as the fact that I dont like to attend parties because of my lack of social abilities and my strict routines. My question is, would you consider dating someone like me who has Asperger's?

Since I am a mom, no, I'd never date you :) That said. Typical people have trouble with dating, not just those with a disability. Some typical people never marry or ever have a long term relationship.
I believe anyone can find that right person, and for some no matter who you are, it can take a while. I also know non disabled people who only like to talk about one topic, since it's what they know best and are comfortable with. Relationships can be difficult for anyone since it's a give-take thing. So people do have to adjust to talking about other topics, or the other person feels left out or not listened to. Not everyone likes to party, and not everyone is so insensitive to that R word being used. I think you'll find the right person, maybe you need to look for him in a different place. I'd suggest looking for Aspie forums.

Aspergers doesn't exist. Its now autism which doesn't exist either. The real label should be vaccine injury disorder by pharma

I would, but I have also have AS. I'm 25 and have never been in a relationship. I haven't been actively looking for one, though. If I found someone who's right for me then I don't think whether they are autistic or NT would matter.
