GLBT Aspies and other non-socialites
I just joined this community. Like most of us, I have a lot of problems meeting and connecting with people, and it's even harder for me if it's someone I'm attracted to. I always assume that if I am interested in someone, that automatically means she is not interested in me, unless she explicitly tells me otherwise. I assume women I am attracted to are too cool, or too together, or too normal, or too something, to notice or care about me. |
I have done a lot of growing in recent years, and although it might be hard to believe from the above paragraph, I like and accept myself a lot more now than I ever did before and I'm more confident than I've ever been.
I like my own company, and I wouldn't say I'm lonely or desperate to find a girlfriend, but it would sure be nice. I have actually managed to work up the nerve to ask a couple women out in the past couple months, and I've had a few dates. They all went okay, but the only person I felt a connection with isn't available. She said she thinks I'm "wonderful" but she just doesn't have the time.
It's nice to meet all of you!
