Q: How do I learn how to build relationships when socializing doesn’t come naturally for me?
A: I look for people to learn from who’ve succeeded at solving that problem, which I’ve found that through reading Autistic blogs. I’m encouraged by those who’ve found satisfying relationships online when face-to-face socializing doesn’t work.
Reading blogs is like learning a card game with the players’ cards laid down on the table. Blogs make explicit the social cues that I can’t normally decipher.
I’m still figuring out how to share my inner life in a way that others might find interesting. I’ll stop her for now.
Thanks for reading.
