I found his question interesting. Autistics I know in a relation, often have a relation with some-one 'off-normal'. But I don't know about figures or 'winning combinations.'
When I look back, I fell for the 'off-normal' types. Have been married with a spectrumite. And am in a relation with a spectrumite now.
A friend, probably on the spectrum, married a woman with severe DISS. A former collegue, diagnosed in the same time as me, was in a relation with a very depressed woman. I know a bipolar woman, her husband thinks he is on the spectrum. It would not amaze me if he is.
And then there are people I know that are in a relation with someone 'excentric'.
Does anyone have figures about this, or can you relate to this. I was amazed that for the man in the group it was so specific about borderline.
We'll be meeting somewhere this month again. And I think this will be one of the topics we'll talk about.

I have always been most attracted to "quirky" or "eccentric" types (if these are indeed not the same thing), as I find them to be the most interesting people.
