hi there, i hope today's kind to you ! ♡
& basically, this is about social media/socialization struggles...! as a neurodivergent person, i have difficulties communicating to others, and tend to have more ease using text-based applications,
however, i've tried many, many different kinds, which is still an endeavor to make & keep friends, yet i feel discontent using different social media, as if none of them really make me happy, or i feel close to users, even my online best friend, or kind mutuals, or if i blacklist & block anyone who's unsafe & make it clear what i want...!
i've tried more than i could word from a kid as a college student now & even lgbt+ & poc spaces & as an african-american member of the community myself...!
( if anyone is curious: amino apps, aspieology, black planet, blahtherapy, bumble, clubs at my college, chatous, discord & discord servers, facebook (messenger), friendr, furaffinity, furvilla, hello poetry, her, instagram, kik, lex, meetapotato, meetme, meetup, newgrounds, omegle, patook, peach, penpalworld, qq, quotev, reddit, skype, snapchat, spectrum singles, speedrun, starfox-online, steam, taimi, trevorspace, twitch, vent, vrchat, we3, whisper, zoe, 7cups & 8tracks & others i've probably forgotten..! )
i guess, what i'm trying to say is, how do you find & maintain a friendship or profile on a site & just feel comfortable & happy with it & or make good friends/a lasting connection whether online or in-person ?
i seem to be lacking a connection & i'm unsure how to articulate this feeling, and i have been working on this for ages with my current therapist... though, thank you for your time, i appreciate it !!
