Hello.

I am new here. I made an account a while ago but I'm scared of interaction so I didn't use it until now. I'm Mae. I'm 34 and autistic. I am a lesbian. I am also severely developmentally delayed. I wanna talk here cause I have no friends or family, and it can be kind of lonely sometimes. I haven't had good luck meeting people, even online, but I still wanted to try. I like to listen to music, do coloring books, play video games and puzzles and watch cartoons. I also like animals a whole lot, especially insects. My favorite animal are cockroaches. I'm sorry if I do this introduction thing wrong, I'm trying my best.

I can't cook, do my own laundry and don't know how to drive, so I spend most of my time in my bedroom. I got diagnosed when I was a little girl, in elementary school, when teachers told my parents they should get me tested. I have a lot of medical issues, physically and mentally. I am only really good at reading and writing. I try very hard to be nice though. I just wanted to have some nice people to talk to, and I hope I don't bother anyone here. I got ghosted by 'friends' 14 times last year and that really made me even more scared to try and talk to people, so please forgive me if I act skittish.

Thank you.

Ahoy-hoy.

Solid introduction. 10/10.

Overall this place is quite welcoming.

What sorta music do you like?
What sorta video games do you play?

I mostly play an old sim racing title called rFactor and all my favourite bands sound terrible. :lol:

I don't know how to reply to just one person or quote anything, so sorry for being so sloppy.

I like pretty much any music but lately I've been listening to a lot of pop/punk or just punk. Descendants, Dollyrots, Lillingtons. My favorite bands though are Cloud Cult and The Hold Steady.

I loooove Pokemon, but again I play everything! I'm right now playing Greedfall, Scars Above and Darksiders 2 as my main games. I also play some stuff on Steam like card games like Dicey Dungeons or Slay the Spire which I am addicted to. I also love board games but I don't have anyone to play them with :/ I got Wingspan last year on Steam but I don't understand how to play it even after doing the tutorial so many times. I just don't think I'm smart enough for it. Stinks cause I'd like to play a board game online.

I loved the first few generations of Pokémon but haven't tried anything since gen 3.

I like a lot of punk as well, especially stuff like Reversal of Man, Terrorizer, Love Lost But Not Forgotten, His Hero Is Gone. Basically grindcore, powerviolence, crust, emo, etc.

Welcome to Wrong Planet.

You like some insects. The only insect I like was one that is almost invisible. You can be right next to it and not see it. It is called a Praying Mantis. Every once and a while I will come across one in the back yard.



I also like honeybees.
