Hello all, I'm a 45 year old single man, diagnosed with Asperger this October. Live in Bedfordshire, originally from Gosport, work full time. I'm a fanatical women's football supporter and enjoy 70s and 80s music and a wide range of TV shows.

I guess I'm here seeking people to talk to for support in times of trouble, as I live at least 60 miles (in most cases 140) from all my friends and relations. There's not much of a social scene where I live, and for financial and lifestyle reasons it suits me to not go out much (my women's football travels, the thing that keeps me going, take pretty much my whole leisure budget). The only downside is when I'm having a bit of a bad time, finding someone to talk to for support is tricky as my friends aren't always available on the phone. 

Thanks for your time, look forward to chatting.
