personally i have only known of one person with aspergers that enjoyed being social and I truly believe it was because this mother forced him at a young age to continue being social and not allowing him to zone in on being isolated.
DO you have aspergers or is it someone in your life with it?

@mechele I'm 37 and just found out I having Asperger's. I was miss diagnosed with severe social anxiety and other things Before. when I thought it was just social anxiety I thought if I worked hard enough I could get to the point that I would enjoy being around people like I see other people seem to and I would not feel like such an outsider.

There been times when I was doing better around people that I was more social but I did not enjoy it. I just did because it was what I was supposed to do. That old saying fake it until you make it. I figured if I kept trying I would learn to like to be around people. But it always felt more like a job then fun.
