Depends on who they where/ how it affected them.
The label autism doesn't tell you a lot about a person.

I wouldn't decide whether or not to date someone on the basis of a single characteristic like this. It could be important, there again it could be completely irrelevant. I'd have to assess it in context.

Not sexually attracted, unlikely to be compatible with my lifestyle or long list of dating dealbreakers.

Yes because it will be a fun challenge to adapt myself to their needs.

Yes, I currently do. Autistic people come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and are all unique, just the same as neurotypical people, so it shouldn't make a difference!

Have and would again.

I mean, I make no promises. But it's very unlikely that autism would be the reason I wouldn't consider dating someone.

Probably not, I'm probably autistic myself so it wouldn't be a great fit.

Half the people here will tell you to break up with your partner if they don't give you a gift yet think they can be with someone that has asperger or autism.

Agreed, there are a lot of people on here who are very trigger-happy about advising people to break up with their partners. And to be fair there are a lot of OPs on here presenting scenarios in which they should break up with their partners. But there are fewer of those than get told to.
