Fuck me. I'm not even THAT Autistic, I just have these 'hobbies' that I can't talk to anyone about.
I've given up on making friends, this is the last fucking time I try. They don't like me when I lie and pretend to enjoy their boring shit just so I can TRY to have a conversation with them, and they don't like me when I'm honest about what I enjoy doing in an attempt to be genuine.
General /autisticFirstImpressions/ thread I guess
the trick is to just kinda slide it in there and not be so specific, even lie a bit but still hide it in there somewhere
If you ever have to admit your hobbies like this just say you like gaming, don't specify what game because 99.9% of the time the normies won't know what you're talking about.
I'm in my third year of college and this was my last strategy left I had at my disposal to make friends (or simply any kind of social connection) and I fucked it up.
I know I'm going to spend the rest of college as "that one guy" who spends all his time in his room playing video games and studying. I really hate it.
I'm aware of that, thanks
tough day OP?
I did the same thing once but I said my hobby is abusing alcohol and everybody laughed.
I have no regrets.
>"sailing," "rock climbing,"
You should have made up bullshit like this.
They don't go sailing or rock climbing every day. The people that said that have probably done it once in their life.
But it's something that will instantly impress the normie, if you fake it.
I live in Scotland and anyone who stood up and said they liked "Monster Hunter" would have been rightfully bullied
You think people are more chill about it because you're still in secondary school
I'm horrible at first impressions. I look very autistic and dirty because I'm a shit skin with long curly hair and no fashion sense, but I'd consider myself fairly interesting to people with similar niche interests. furthermore, I'm fairly articulate when I type and I have an expansive vocabulary, but I can't talk to people easily in real life.
How the fuck are we meant to talk to people and make friends? Unless I have a HUD that tells me what people like and their interests and personality traits, I never know if I can connect to them. I might just give up and go join the anime club, at least I'm some sort of meme to them because they write "who is anon?" on their shirts for some reason and then smile at me.
No really what the hell?
Do you really have to tell your hobbies to your teacher like in elementary school?
I mean we did it in middle school too a few times for some foreign language classes like English jut so that the teacher could make us talk a bit in English, or in elementary school to socialize, but in fucking college?
I'm not black, I'm a different type of shitskin
Well, It's true that I'm genetically inferior. There's no point in lying to myself about an observable and effectively objective fact. The physical traits I am endowed with, such as short height, a bumpy potato nose, black curly hair and dark brown eyes and thin wrists are all ugly traits.
Even if you said something generic like "reading and sports" they still wouldn't wanna be your friend. You're a creep. You're genetically inferior. Girls can sense these things man. They can see the red flags. Look in a mirror lol. Go cry faggot.
