Um...I'm an Aspie but thought this Yahoo! article, attributed to Insider, might interest those of you from Hyperspace:

"ADHD made it impossible for me to date — until I found someone else with the same condition"
If you accept the observation from the article then maybe also consider High Functioning Autistics in your search? I've read that the characteristics at the high-end of ADHD overlap the characteristics at the low-end of the Autism Spectrum which certainly seems true with my ADHD bride. When we were trying to figure out if I might be Autistic she noticed that she also had a number of the traits of Autism. What distinguished her from Autism, however, was that she has a wide range of interests and does not stick to routines.

So, she is an ADHD gal married to me, who has been diagnosed as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Level 1 (Mild) and also meeting the criteria formerly associated with Asperger's Syndrome. We're happily married and our next anniversary will be our 22nd!

When diagnosed I bought champagne!
I finally knew why people were strange.
