I have something similar to autism so i'm 19 but will be going to University at probably 21-23,24.....


I have been homeschooled and never really had friends, I used to do loads of psorts but that stopped at 15. I've only really been clubbing once, I don't really have friends ... i'm planning to go abroad to Napa/Maga this summer with a girl I met on Holiday and I plan on working abroad too.

But I will go uni, but I will be a mature student.

I'm seeing people my age that I know going abroad having the time of their life at uni.I want to have that same experience, but would it be sad/loser if I went clubbing with a bunch of 18/19 year olds? I really want the friends/student experience I also would like to find a boyfriend ( the guys around my area are rubbish lol ) but I don't know if it will be too late? I feel like i've missed out...

You won't have missed out. At uni nobody really cares how old you are as long as you're a good person. You'll be fine.

Carpe diem.

Put yourself out there and try new things, you're not very old at all so you'd blend in just fine. I understand that it can be hard, and I'm sure it's a bit harder with autism, but there are many great things to be discovered outside of your comfort zone.

Well I don't have autism exactly just autistic traits and i'm on the autistic spectrum 1-10 that can't diagnose me with autism... but thanks! Caught up with an old friend she went to uni at 19 but did a foundation year and is on her first year at 20 so I guess it's not too late !

Genuinely age is just not important at university. I have friends who went at 24 and 55 and they had a whale of a time. Essentially, you're as young as you feel, and provided you make the effort to get involved in as much as you can, you'll have a thriving social life (:
