Friends, Family & Social Skills
People with Aspergers / Autism often struggle with social skills and making friends as well as engaging with family members. Use this forum to seek help, offer advice and share experiences.
I get told quite often that I come across quite formal in email's, letter's, texts, etc.
I have an idea of what I want to say but as soon as I start to type it tends to end up that way. I'm not sure if it's due to me having an image of it having a start, middle and an end every time.
For example, if someone that I'm working with from a different department emails me a document that I need, I couldn't just email back "Thanks, S", even the word "Thanks" gets to me. I would respond with a full thank you.
I also seem to start every email with "Hi X, Hope you are well." I don't know where it comes from I do it all the time even though I could have spoken to them five seconds before or know that they are dying of man flu. And I also end with "Kind regards...".
Back to the subject at hand, does anyone have any ideas of how I can soften up my emails?
