Hi, I'm a 37 year old female living in the south of England, I have really bad social skills, I rarely leave the house and only really talk to people online, I'm interested in science, movies(mostly sci-fi/comic book/fantasy) and crafting/making things. I'm looking for friends to text with on skype, I don't watch terrestrial television so I don't chat about soaps or reality tv, but I'm interested in talking about most other things and learning about other peoples hobbies and interests. I only talk on skype as I already have a few friends I talk to on there and I don't want loads of apps to keep track of. if you'd like to add me on skype feel free to PM me.

Hi - I'm a South Wales based 32 year old aspie female and would love to make a few new friends, especially locally.

I'm interested in ancient history, deep sea life/fish, knitting, weightlifting, watching anime and alternative/metal music. I love animals, especially cats (I have two) and enter competitions as a hobby. I live with my partner, also an aspie, who I've been with for about eight years.

Looking forward to hearing from anyone interested in being friends.

Hi I’m a high functioning autistic. Don’t have the greatest social skills but good enough to make a few friends and pass as normal. Right now I’m in training in the army so I may not be able to reply immediately but I try to reply as fast as possible. I’m 20 years old call me JC or Julius. I have interests in programming, politics, people, economics, philosophy, and computers. I enjoy listening to rock and metal music. I’m in the army which is challenging and exciting. I live in the US and am interested in making some online friends that are autistic or aspies.

Hi! My name is Gabe Maiberger. I am a 19 year old who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 2011 and am currently working towards my Associates of Science. I eventually intend to get two PhDs in the fields of Computer Science and Physics. I have a passion for OS Development, Microprocessor Design, Cryptography, Orbital Mechanics, Particle Physics, Alcubierre Drive, and Biology (side hobby). I am currently working on designing a new microprocessor based on an entirely new instruction set. Hopefully I will be able to implement the design using Graphene NanoRibbon Field Effect Transistor (GNRFET) technology at a 5nm node :D. My favorite movies are The Matrix Trilogy, Maze Runner (franchise), Hunger Games (franchise), Terminator (franchise), Interstellar, and Gravity. My favorite music genre is electronic; my favorite sub-genres are: dubstep, house, electro house, trance and psytrance. I abhor electronic music that has been sullied by lyrics hailing from mainstream rap music or pop music. In my opinion it has desecrated the genre. My goals in life are to: create a successful microprocessor/software development company, be the first man on Mars, implement a viable version of the EMDrive (if it actually works in the first place), develop FTL travel by implementing Miguel Alcubierre's warp drive metric, and run for the office of President of the United States as a Constitutionist (Constitution Party) in the year 2036.

Male, British (East Midlands/South Yorkshire), age 34, autism/aspergers.

Recently diagnosed and looking to make some friends who share my newly discovered superpower. I think I’m fairly easy to get along with, funny sometimes, and can be a decent conversationalist at times but I get very anxious meeting new people and like to take it slowly and carefully. I’m better at maintaining friendships with women than men but am open to both. I like to read, am educated to MA level, like video games, movies, art etc and am especially interested in meeting someone to hang out with, have afternoons out etc. I present fairly ‘neurotypifally’ at first meeting, although I am by nature a very quiet and reserved person. I’m very respectful, safe, honest, and not a creepy weirdo.

I’m not interested in making online-only friends or pen-pals and would like to meet people who at least theoretically would eventually be open to meeting in person. No rush though and no pressure.

25 years old Aspie with special interest on stimming with hair dryers or anything like that, I like counting and taking data on behavior. I suck at making friends and mostly avoid meeting people because 1-I am socially anxious, b- I cant keep up a conversation , after hy hy Im lost. Im gay, single, aint looking to mingle, but would like to meet person who could at least stand me (I can be annoying as f***). And Im honest, sometimes too much.

Hi, I am Bob from Townsville, North Queensland. I live with ASD and would love to make friends with other males or females. My age is 58 and I was diagnosed in 2015.
I find it so very difficult to make friends as I do not have the 'communication chip' within me. (Joke) I have a social anxiety that I personally believe comes with the ASD package.
I guess as a result of not understanding people, I tend to spend a lot of my time alone, but that is not a negative issue for me as I do enjoy my own company and I do have quite a few interests.
I am an intelligent guy and have a quirky sense of humour.
I am most comfortable with being Aspie; yet if I was able to remove two issues they would be; 1. Lack of communication skills in a group larger than one person; 2. social anxiety.

Cheers for now. 8O :roll:

Don't let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love. And most importantly, be kind to others, even if you don't like them.

Hey WP Aspies/Autistics:

My name is Scott. I am from the Chattanooga, TN area of Northwest Georgia in the USA. I am currently on leave in my position as a Community Resource Specialist (helping people find resources in their communities) from health concerns (none related to autism). My interests/hobbies are in the area of the following: adult autism advocacy, networking, collaborations with other nonprofit organizations, baking/cooking, smooth jazz music, accounting, the outdoors, social science research, compiling survey results and crunching numbers, USA/UK politics, and more. I am married, 50, have three grandkids (Quinn - 14, Melody - 11, Harmony - 7) and a stepson (Hunter - 19) who live with my wife and me.

I was diagnosed in 2007 at the age of 40 on the autism spectrum but never received written documentation of my written diagnosis. In 2010, I received written documentation. I founded the GCA Centre for Adult Autism (which was then an adults-only support group for autistics in Chattanooga, TN) in late 2010. Since then, GCA has grown to include support groups in North Georgia, an adult autism conference, and other things. My autism journey has been a most interesting one, as well as the health-related journey I am on currently.

Although I am helping autistic adults and others a lot, I am hoping for the opportunity to penpal with other autistics and non-autistics (e.g. parents of autistic adults, etc.). Geography is not a concern when it comes to email (although I had a penpal some 25 years ago that I used to penpal with who lived in Malaysia via paper and pen - yes, snail mail penpals existed back then). I am happy to learn about what others do (even if it something different than what I do or what my interests are). I am happily married to an incredible woman, so I am looking for new friends only from different places to write who I can encourage and get to know.

If I sound like someone you would like to write, let me know and bring it on! Thanks, Scott

Hi BearBee:
Good afternoon from the States. First of all, congratulations to you and your partner for being as long as you have together. In my country, it is very common for people to divorce after a couple of years after being married. Glad that you and your partner have something that works for both of you. My friendship ad is below yours on the same page in WrongPlanet. Like yourself, I am looking for friends only. I am very happy in my marriage with my spouse/wife, April, who is not on the autism spectrum like me (I am classic autism and did not speak until 4). She is AD/HD and I just happened to marry into a family full of AD/HDers. If you know anything about AD/HD, then you understand the challenges that come along with individuals who suffer in living with AD/HD. The relationship dynamic with April and me is a most interesting one when you consider someone living on the autism spectrum (me) and someone living with AD/HD (April). April and I have her three youngest grandchildren (Quinn - 14, Melody - 11, and Harmony - 7) living with us. Does make for a full house, especially first thing in the mornings and at night before they go to sleep. Jokingly, I tell people that is far easier for me to work on my relationship with April than it is to deal with the three grandkids plus Hunter (below) at the same time.

What is it like being a partner to someone who also is an Aspie? What is communication like, just out of curiosity? April is the partner who has the high emotional quotient and such. I have a low emotional quotient. When I am in an autism-related environment speaking before a large crowd, I am fine and "in my own skin". Put me outside an autism-related environment, and I am far removed from being the same person. What do you like most about ancient history and what kind of ancient history? I suppose that being from South Wales that your interest might be on ancient history in Brittania, ancient Rome and Greece, the Seven Wonders of the World, etc. Any connection about ancient history and deep sea life (maybe Greek mythology - Poseidon, Neptune, etc?).

You got two cats? Awesome! I have two kittens, Autumn and Caroline (who my 19 year old stepson decided to give the male kitten a female name), who each think that when breakfast time comes that they are entitled a few pieces of fried eggs I make that morning. I have never seen any cats or kittens in my life who politely (and I do mean politely) sit at me and look in anticipation of getting eggs for breakfast. I am not saying that I spoil them or anything like that. But I have never seen the look on a cat or kitten before. It has been said that cats, dogs, whoever rule a person's house. But I have reminded the kittens who the boss is in this house - me. They want to be nice to me, then they get eggs. They want to be grumpy at me and make faces and all that, then they can wait until the next day. Simple as that.

Have you always lived in South Wales? I have lived in the States my entire life but went to Canada once (which was nice). Do you follow Swansea City in the English Premier League by any chance? I know that Swansea City in South Wales.

I will stop here for now. Thank you for reading this and for your consideration in possibly writing with me. My handle is GCAspies. Thanks, Scott

Hi, I'm Chelsea. I am female, 27, and living in the south eastern United States. I work as a behavior analyst. I like to read and play volleyball. I love The Big Bang Theory and now Young Sheldon. I would love to know other people who also have Aspergers/Autism and understand what it is like.

I listed my interests in my bio and everything else I'd include would be "don't include" stuff. Private message me and ask if you can't figure it out on your own.

Hello! My name is Chris, I'm 31, and I live near Ann Arbor/Jackson Michigan. It would be awesome to find some local friends - but anywhere in the Midwest would be fine. I like the idea that we could actually meet (without buying plane tickets).

I'm very much a "science nerd" - I studied physics in college, I work with lasers for a living, and now I'm thinking of going back to college for Chemistry. I'm also a nature fiend and can often be found hiking or mountain biking. My big aspie obsession though has always been fireworks. I frequently travel to attend firework conventions.

I just want to find friends I can better identify with, and what better place than WP?! I don't think I've ever had close friends on the spectrum, though my past interactions with fellow aspies have been very positive, to the point that I really regret not furthering the relationships when I had the chance. Sometimes it's really felt like we were on the same wavelength.

Things I like to do with friends range from low key game nights to camping trips or road trips. I'm pretty open minded but sometimes I don't have to patience or focus to learn overly complex board/card games. Playing something simple enough where I can focus more on socializing is ideal. Let's bullshit about life while playing cards against humanity?

Hi, I am looking to make new friends who are also on the autism spectrum. I am a 31-year old female from Minnesota. I live alone with my cats, but I do have a small circle of close friends/neighbors that gets me by. Only one of them is on the spectrum though and she is not at all like me. I would like to trade stories, experiences, just someone to share with and talk to. I am adopted and was raised separately from my twin sister. I found out about her when I was 21, and I was diagnosed with ASD when I was 24. I've worked really hard on my social skills these last few years, and honestly I am just plumb tuckered out. I need to know I'm not alone! I know there are alot of lonely people on here, so anyone is welcome to PM me if they feel like chatting. Hope to hear from you!
