I'm not sure really , I came here to socialize I haven't seen my friends in a year and a half nor have a spoken to anyone.
I came here like everyone else who felt lonely. Some who were in a existential rut. Maybe were here to make a name for ourselves through posts , or is it so we can support each other?

What do you think?

I'm here for no real reason anymore...initially it was my aim to start posting to get my confidence up as I was too scared to post not so long ago.
Then some people started talking to me more so I came for socialisation, and these days, I guess it's just trying to make people feel welcome...

I'm here to learn about other people's experiences with having Asperger's and how they cope with it. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who is struggling and feeling alienated.

I feel lonely as well. It makes me look forward to something. I deleted my facebook about two years ago because people were not very nice. Here, I can be myself and people won't bully me because of it.

I came here because I wanted to communicate with other people on the spectrum....

Then I realized nobody really talks to each other on WP. It's so lonely here.

My reason would be that I am isolating myself from reality and people (mostly strangers) in real life, and this site is one of the ways for me to have some communication. I don't mind loneliness, but there are times when I feel like I can't stand it, you know?

And the fact that I don't feel alone, disliked or whatnot by the people here makes me a little more secure in myself. Here, I can be myself without risking ridicule.

Ah...7 months actually :oops:
Not to say that any of my posts actually contain much quality - but I do like to come here to see what other people are talking about and things like that.

I like to participate in all types of forums, and this one seems particularly cool for the wide range of people from all different circumstances who come here and (by and large) accept each other for what they are. That's why I'm here I guess.

My OT told me about Asperger's, so I googled it to find out more information, which led me to this website.

I don't know. I'm bored I guess.

My therapist told me about it, but I was already a member before.

Started out as a search on something I can't remember, I guess I do it now so I can help my development stages.
