For anybody having opportunities for new social-skill experiences, does anybody view the 'Social Skills & Making Friends Forum' here on WP differently after such experiences?

For example, for what little I've personally experienced, I'm hard-pressed to put these experiences to words here on WP. At best, I'm usually only able to write a brief paragraph which generalizes the experiences.

Anybody have similar experiences?

I could, but I don't feel comfortable talking about other people on here much , and it would be too much for me to share as well

Thank-you for your feedback - as mentioned, I generalize (without mention of specifics e.g.) my personal experiences in brief paragraphs.

I feel this discusison-thread might act as "an ice-breaker of sorts" to better guide people on the Autism Spectrum to better reconcile social goals with partcipation here on WP.

OK I think you mean you are describing how you act in other threads, whereas I misunderstood it as you wanting everyone to post little descriptions in this thread-oops. Reading comprehension fail.

I'm mainly focusing on how one might act in real life - outside of posting online.

I'm sorry but I still don't really understand what you mean. Are you asking if real-life experiences change the way we see what people post in this particular section of WP?

Yes, real-life experiences change the way we see WP.

I couldn't put mine into details because it requires cultural contexts and language translations... Plus I don't do well with telling stories.


I'm simply too aware of how relative cultures are.
And that relatively speaking, I have social opportunities in spades.

Only except me, the individual, is inherently asocial to the core that no amount of feel good and relationships could seem to change my indifference to socializing and it's achievements.
Boredom and ego death, maybe, but not affection or competition, not hate or obsession, not attachment or validation, not even love.

Regardless.
I need to work on my emotional regulation before any behavioral regulation (being pro-social) takes place.
