If openness is what you value most, then perhaps (after the pandemic is over with) you should seek out a local in-person autistic/Aspie support group and try to make friends there.

Hmm definitely I'll see it could be an eye opener for me

Some autistic/Aspie adult support groups are currently holding chat meetings, usually via Zoom, although some are using phone conference calls or text-based chat. Hopefully these and more groups will start meeting in-person again at some point within the next few months or later this year.

Ways to look for local support groups:

1) Meetup.com. (Try a variety of relevant search terms.)

2) If you live in the U.S.A., Google "Autism Society" followed by the name of your state and/or your nearest major city.

Thanks I will check that out

What i talk about changes depending on who i am talking with. If it is a work environment i talk about job related things without getting too personal.

It is best to keep a low profile, smile a lot and agree with some random thing a random person said in my experience :P
