      Is there a cutoff age to getting into a relationship? I fear I’ve hit it because my efforts to get a girlfriend always fail.

        If you have continued to develop your social/people skills since the age of, say 12 or so, then your efforts are successful. This idea that there is a cutoff age/a time limit is not doing you any favors. You fret over it. You continually bring it up. Who told you there was a time limit to being able to love & be loved?

        No there isn't. Several people get into a relationship in their 70's or even later. My mother got into relationship with a man (who I heavily suspect is autistic) well into his 50's who had never been in a relationship before. He lived in a small apartment where he hoarded films and books. He was also pretty unfit and ate lots of candy.

        Sorry I have not replied to PM's & such. Am pretty busy, and I don't know if I have the mental resources to be the help you need--that change must come from within. But me keeping quiet doesn't mean I gave up on you/think you're not going to make it. That remains up to you.

        I am in one pretty nice community, but it's probably just because it is quite small, built around one person who engages quite actively with it, and a chunk of the people there have been friends for 20+ years. I haven't looked into any more though because of Discord's reputation. When I did look at a couple of other channels early on, they were... not for me.

        You get more what you focus on. Make an effort to change your focus. I fight with this everyday. I try as best as possible to change my perspective. I exercise and get the endorphines running, I'll go for a walk to clear my head. Whatever it takes. Switch your focus and you be able to change your outcome and find your goals.

        Maturity means you don't give a rat's behind about those two people. The two questions l say? Do those two people pay your bills? Will they come to your funeral? Then don't worry about them.

        I wish you had a different job. Being on the spectrum means change is hard for us. So don't blame the two people. Realize it's harder for us to get out of the grind and find/do something better.

        The fact you are employed now makes it easier to get a better job if you were so inclined. I'm looking for employment myself and the hassle of online applications confuses me. See if you can find some help somewhere with applying & go for it.

        Lost cost. Fairly safe. At least they were in the small towns. The YWCA was a place where girls just leaving home and having a job went, in the larger town near where I grew up. Large town being Battle Creek. Not Lansing, Grand Rapids or anything like Detroit.

        Some of it has to do with one's nature. Introverts tend to be much more content with their own company. Extroverts will struggle with it because they need people like others need air. Consider how being around others makes you feel. Drained or energized?

        Try refining that statement. It's not that you just want to know if you can. It looks to me as if what you really want is .....to draw and write stories.
