Making new friends

Hi I'm looking to make new friends. My interests are going down the gym, boxing, walking, cinema and meet for cup of coffee. 

Parents
  • I am a totally blind autistic who has unbelievable difficulty making friends. I had trouble making them at school and was told it would get better as an adult. It hasn't got any better if anything I think it's become worse and about ten times more isolating. People just don't seem to relate to my quirky sense of humour and my intellect. I think of life as a swimming pool, when I talk about my main special interest which is the brain and psychology that is the deep end. When I am talking about some of my more childlike special interests or engaging in what others would consider childish humour that is my shallow end. For some reason unbeknownst to me and I don't know if it's because I'm blind or autistic, but people just can't relate to me and I can't relate to them. I have often been deceived by thinking I've made a best friend only to find they've done the dirty on me by not getting it like I thought they did. My inability to use my filters has also caused a lot of problems in friendships with me. I have been renowned for losing my temper with them in a frustration episode and I've often been described as blunt and brutally honest which I can well be. I just want someone to be my friend, male or female, doesn't matter. I just want someone to see past the bluntness and unintentional selfishness and look at the integrity I have and my decency and morality and of course my whacky sense of humour. The few times people have gotten to know me they have seen the real person who is moral, loving, kind, dedicated, always wanting to please and not to hurt, and someone who is funny and resembles the innocence of a child.
