Looking for connection after moving out on my own


New Member
I moved out of my parents home about a month ago. I have been feeling isolated and lonely, but felt strongly that I needed to do this to become independent. I feel like all I do is go to work, come home, struggle with my autistic plight, try to sleep, fail, watch some YouTube, and repeat. I’ve been trying different meetup groups for the Neuro Diverse. I have found one I really like, but it only meets one night a week. I can’t always make it, bc I work random schedules. I have read a few threads on here and the people seem accepting and polite.
I like to game on Xbox, but have struggled to find online consistent players that enjoy the games I do. I also do VR. I’m willing to share my gamer tag for anyone who is interested. Look forward to reading and sharing thoughts.

welcome to af.png


I'm living my whole life at once.
I still don't feel like I belong anywhere. The search for community and acceptance is a lifelong one!
But we all have to start somewhere :)

Welcome. You have taken a big leap and succeeding at independence adds to your value in a relationship. When I was working in cancer research , I too felt isolated and lonely, and I hadn't started dating. Then I joined the Sierra Club for its outings and found that interest and competence counted more than neurology. That gave me confidence to ask out women I knew. It was fun, just being with someone.

Welcome! The nice thing about forums is that you can pop in whenever you have time - the conversation is always ongoing :)

Good work moving out on your own. Excellent!!!!

Welcome. Most of us have some degree of loneliness. After a while you may come by to like the peace and quiet of all that alone time.
