I am starting this group to make local friends on the spectrum. There is no cost or mandatory anything. It's just for friends. No professionals, please, this is not for networking or business stuff. Self and formal diagnoses OK. I started a group on MeetUp but most people are in the Melbourne or Orlando area, and I'm looking closer to home.
Maybe craigslist is a weird place to post to find friends, but tbh it's been so hard to find people I connect with. There are tons of groups online but I can never seem to meet people irl. I just really connect better with peeps on the spectrum so I'm going with it.
If we get a few positive responses, I'll re-start the MeetUp group in this area to announce group fun things. Btw I realize "fun things" is different for everyone. I would just like to grow a group of friends organically and do what we feel like doing when we feel like doing it. No pressure, we can even email or text for a while before meeting up cuz that's usually what I'm comfortable with anyway.
Seriously. Sometimes you just need a friend to go get ice cream with.
If you respond via the craigslist email relay, I'll send my phone number and you can text if you want. If you reach out, I'd really like to know anything about you that you'd like to share, including why you think it'd be cool to have a group of irl autie bffs <3
