Depends on ones expectations.
People with RP will eventually go blind and would need some care in this area.

IF YOU CAN STILL DRIVE OR YOU LIVE IN AN AREA WITH GOOD PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SURE THERE SHOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE HOWEVER IF YOU CANNOT LEAVE THE HOUSE IT MAY POSE AS AN ISSUE. ALSO WHEN YOU START A RELATIONSHIP IT IS IMPORTANT TO DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN POSSIBLY DO ON YOUR OWN WITHOUT HIS/HER ASSISTANCE SO SHOW YOU ARE WILLING AND ABLE. DO NOT WANT THE PERSON TO RESENT YOU.
