Time to bust out those friend-making skills, Umbra, cause you're going to make friends with this kid instead of making yourself depressed thinking about his lack thereof. Let us know how it goes!
Well, here are two problems to this. First, it's the age difference, I'm way older than him, and whenever I try to make conversation with him, I find that we don't have much to talk about. No common interests, no nothing.

Secondly, It would be obvious that I'm trying to befriend him out of pity, which would only make things worse.

So yeah, I'm doing what I can :)

I like music. If you like music too, and have similar tastes, you might want to add me on last.fm.

I know many people with forms of autism, as well as ADD/ADHD. Both run in the family. I've been asked if I had Aspergers before... Honestly don't know how to reply to such a question...

I knew a deaf girl in elementary school. She was a cutie. Wanted to be her friend, but had difficulty conversing with her. Too bad there wasn't a sign language class in the second grade...
