Making friends at university whilst having Asperger's Watch

    I have Asperger's syndrome.

    I've been living in private halls for a little over a month; I've had lectures and seminars for the last 3 weeks. I have always struggled to make friends so as such did not come to university with the expectation of making friends in the first week.

    However, as I am unsure on how to go about making friends (and would genuinely not like to repeat my college experience, in which I didn't make any friends in the entirety of the 2 years) I was wondering if anyone could offer suggestions.

    To be honest making friends is easiest when you don’t want to make friends, but you just want to talk to people. You don’t pick someone randomly and aim to make friends with them. If you want to make friends just talk to everyone who might interest you without the intention of becoming friends and then go from there.
