Should aspies date other aspies?

If a person has Asperger's, would they likely get along better with a mate that also has Asperger's?

That would depend upon the other person.

In some cases, I believe it would be a blessing to be coupled up with another person with Asperger's, in that the other person would be more likely to understand what it all means.

On the othe hand, it could be duplication of problems.

I prefer the idea of seeing what the other person is like - and forgetting about whether they have or do not have Asperger's.

In other words, don't rule someone out because to do/do not have Asperger's.

We fall in love with people, not diagnoses!

Cheers!

HI
When we first met we didn't know both of us have Asperger's
I got a diagnosis and my husband doesn't want one but he is so Aspie it's unreal - sound sensitive and lists etc very typical
I would be too afraid to live with a man who isn't Aspie
Due to Abuse i am not great in relationships and this guy is kind and gentle enough for even me
