How do I socialize?

I have depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, and aspergers. I never really knew how to socialize very well and I want to meet people playing online games. Overtime I just lost the ability to even make attempt at socializing with anyone besides my girlfriend. Each time I try to seek out a game with someone I just end up not doing it. I am not sure why. I miss playing games online with friends and other players. It was fun. Maybe someday I will do that again.

Just message someone in an online game. That's it, you socialized.
Eventually you get added to a group with a discord. Randomly post your screenshot or opinion on dlc every now and then.

Soon enough the other shut ins who play 24/7 will desperately rely on you as part of daily socialization.

Then you get fed up with most of them, get toxic, and keep the ones who are real friends.

I found this didn't fill the hole for me, a lot of those people moved on or didn't depend on you to the same extent and the ones that do aren't good.

You may find your experience different but I found face to face socialisation more worthwhile in the end even if it was much harder work.

I can't play video games 24/7. I work at a beef slaugherhouse. I added someone on Xbox Live that I work with but I still haven't got the chance to play GTA Online with him.

Would it be accurate to describe your workplace as an "abbatoir"?

I mean did your boss ever tell you to throw out a hunk of meat and you fucked it first, I'm asking if that's ever happened, this isn't tough.

Sounds like it comes from personal experience. No, I have not done that.

Join a club, go talk to people in stores that are not busy. Get a job working in a service environment. Ask people on the subway if they like purple or orange more? Remind them that neither word rhymes with anything.

I already had a job working in the service environment. Not really the best way to meet people.

It helped me because it forces you to interact, and you know that you're taking on a clear role in a relationship. Give what you get from people, and ultimately you know they'll leave and pay you for your time.

Not good for meeting people, but a good way to practice talking to them and building up confidence in personal interactoin .

When I worked as a cashier at a gas station I mostly formed the practice of reciting the same lines each time trying to get people out the door.

I think you might be on the wrong thread. No one ever said anything like that. Either that or you are self reflecting really hard. I hope you get whatever good shit you are looking for though.
