I used to be on a anime club, but it got cancelled due to the club leader didn't come in and he never called me. I was suspected it might related to my banned from a Livestream chat with one online person that lead me to the loss of four friends (including my best friend) at a same time follow up with a college probation after my anxiety attack of the loss of friends and afraid of people treating me like a Chris-Chan despite of my high functioning autism.
Does a go home- club count? I've always loved solitude so I don't really mind if I'm in a group or alone . Other than that I'm in a moped club dedicated for one of the Finland's old classic mark and in a worldwide club of model machinists
I'm surprised by that; as a video game developer of sorts myself, I wouldn't have considered it a very social or club-oriented group as a whole! Not like sports clubs or things like that, anyway. I'm also curious about whether you're the only woman to attend such things; I always thought of it as a very male-dominated interest (a fact which constantly annoys me).
Unfortunately for me, the only things on meetup.com within 50 miles of where I live are a reiki group and a 'spiritual friends' group, both of which seem to attract four old women each. Hmm.
I guess sometimes even programmers like to get together and talk about programming related things. I think they also use it for professional advancement, networking, etc. And the one I go to, it's like 30 totally awkward people with no social skill all in a room together. Which is a bit weird.
I'm not the only woman who attends, but I'm one of only two or three regular female attendees who actually writes code, the others do things like art assets. But I haven't run into people being either dismissive or people being creepy. Everyone's pretty nice. (It might help that I bring baked goods to every meeting. I enjoy feeding people.)
I'm actually trying to learn Unity to fit in better 3: It's so much higher level than the language I know (Python) that it feels like cheating.
