Description Lifetime Networks is seeking a volunteer network friend for a friendly, enthusiastic individual. She is a university student in her 20’s with a variety of interests including anthropology, anime, arts and crafts, Minecraft, D&D, tabletop games, cosplay and paganism. She enjoys going to cafes, restaurants, walks/hikes, ice-skating, movies (after Covid restrictions), playing board games and RPG games with friends and making TikToks. She is autistic, hypersensitive (i.e. gets sensory overload easily) and can have a difficult time making and keeping friends due to struggles in social situations. Seeking someone close in age range (18-33), who is LGBTQ+ friendly with similar interests who can commit long-term to monthly hangouts and semi-annual events with her network. She spends the school year in Victoria, and is out of town in the summer months, so ideally you would be open to keeping in touch virtually during these times.
