I have specific hobbies, yet I am frustrated I am unable to find people to share them!
I mean, I may know some NT's who may share the hobby, but other than that there are social factors which may make the hobby sharing something that cannot be done :(

I am both angry and sad about this because I am alone with my hobbies with no one to share them with
Mostly frustrated

Can anyone relate? And how do you manage to get over it?
I mean, I occupy myself with a hobby and find myself becoming angrier because I have no one to share it with
I am thinking of asking some NT's if they share the hobby, but since some of them may not have time I worry they may think I am a pushover

Personally, I enjoy my hobbies more when I don't have to share. Your idea is probably better though. There are bound to be groups revolving around your favorite hobby, whether online or locally. If it's super-specific, it may be more difficult though.

A pushover as in "easily influenced"? I'm not sure I understand.

It's because I have great passion for my hobbies. But a passion is nothing when it is not shared with others

I am fortunate to have hobbies that I can share with others. Since tennis is also an active pursuit, it gives me good exercise as well as opportunities for social interaction.

Yes, sports is more easily shared than video games or any other specific hobbies
Good for you. However, I still want people to play The Sims 2 with me! :x
