Dating a retarded person
But due to my disability giving me a Grade 10 intelligence level (Age 15), I was also declaired under age, so no charges. It would have to be someone who had a slight issue if it was mental.
Instead I got sent to a 12 week Sex Offenders Program to learn why it's wrong for people with disabilities to have sex. Handicap is fine as long as they are there mentally.
I am so glad I had the good sense to overlook his disability.
He was also a proud man, and he worked very hard to support us.
Now no one right off the bat notices he's "different". I tell him he might have to work harder, or do it differently.
While he was in treatment, strangers saw the 2 full leg casts, and MANY were rude to me. His disability is physical, he's sweet tempered, and smart.
I am one very lucky woman to have had him in my life.
Here's a link to a discussion about Aspergers from a fellow Fishy....
If you are interested in dating him you should be able to find a tactful way to discuss it with him.
quite informative. to say your friend has this condition, just guessing here....
Back when I was 42, I dated a 40 year old woman with a very slight mental disability that I met through the Special Olympics. We know we each have limitations, but we enjoyed going out together.
I would only imagine if a normal person started to date a slow person or mentally handicap person there are some issues.
You have to compare it to a grown person dating a under aged person.
I am not any different from my clients with MR in that I have places where I am not as competent and need help.
