Autistic Adults in Denton, TX

A casual meet-up of Adult's with Asperger's in the Denton area. No qualifications, requirements, or obligations. Just an opportunity to meet friends and have fun.

Look for the tall white guy with long black hair in the tattered black cap and leather jacket...that'll be me. Might print a piece of paper with "ASAN Denton" on it to make things easier...

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    No one has posted anything about the Denton meet-up in a month or so. Is there still interest in having a meet-up group? Melody sent an e-mail to us stating that we needed to take proper prodigal to start a group. Is anyone interested in becoming the leader?

      It's a long way out of my way, but I can pick you up if there is no other way for you to get to the meeting.

      I would really appreciate that, but that is really really out of the way for you. I'll see if I can work something else out first, but if not, I'll message you my address and stuff on facebook. Thanks :-)

    I too missed everyone at Big Mike's. I was running late and go there about 15 to 20 mins late. I was very upset at first, because it really was out of my comfort zone to go in the first place, but after reading what happen I now understand. The next time one person needs to take the lead and get everyone's number.

      Sorry :-(

      I also arrived 15 to 20 minutes late and stayed until about 2:15 just to see if anyone showed up. I wonder if we might have seen each other. I sat near the door for most of the time I was there. Indeed, the place was crowded, and most of the people there appeared to be UNT students. I wish we could have both found everyone else, but oh well. We've learned that we need to plan better next time to avoid another situation like this.

    Oh my, I missed you all! I didn't know you were going to move the meeting to Subway. Anyway, I was at Big Mike's Coffeehouse and it was crowded. If I had had a phone number for anyone I thought would be attending, I would have called and could have met you at Subway. May I ask, did you first meet at Big Mike's and then go to Subway? I think such last-minute relocations of meetings should be avoided whenever possible. I wish I could have been at the meeting today.

      :-( I'm sorry we missed you. We met at big mikes, decided it was too crowded and noisy, waited 15 minutes to see if anyone else was coming, then moved to subway. I agree that last minute changes aren't desirable, but we couldn't have foreseen that the coffee machine would have required such noisy repairs at that time, and I'm told that place isn't usually that crowded. Sorry again. If you want to message me your phone number through facebook, I'll contact you if there's ever a similar situation in the future.

      December 9, 2012

    • Andrea Abigail P.

      I understand the dilemma. I may have arrived at Big Mike's just after you left. I'll send you my phone number via FB and next time there is going to be a meeting in Denton, something should be done so that people can find out about last minute changes like you had yesterday.

      December 10, 2012

  • Megan E.

    We moved to subway just up the street if anyone is on their way

    I'm just now finding out that you have found a time and place for the Denton meetings. Sorry, haven't been on Meetup or checked Meetup emails in a while. But I will plan on coming.

    So is anyone except me and Eric going to show up for the meeting? I'm just curious since no one else has said anything since it got finalized.

    • Megan E.

      Yeah, I should be there

    Mk, been thinking...May not even be the best idea to get a private room for this meetup. Maybe getting a booth in a public place would make it more casual/less rigid? If others agree, Sunday afternoons at Big Mike's are slow and we could still meet there at 1pm (12/09). If not, I can reserve a room at one of the public libraries. Let me know what y'all think.

      I'm okay with that. It's not like we'll be a large group and Big Mike's isn't exactly loud.

    =( Finally got a reply from Big Mike's Coffee. They are renovating the back and are not taking any new reservations until next year. I'll continue looking for venues, but might not get one in time for Nov 11. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

    Sundays at 1pm would be good for me. How long should the meet-up me? I am thinking around a hour or so, but we can play it by ear, we don't have to stick to a strict time frame. I am actually nervous and excited about the idea of going to the meet-up. I have never really talked to other adults with Asperger's before. This is going to be new experience for me.

    Sounds like Sundays would have more availablity. I'm still trying to get in touch with Big Mike's Coffee (will go in person today), but what time would be best? ~1pm? ~6pm? Somewhere in between or later? Let me know what you think.

      Pretty much any time within that range is fine for me. Preferably somewhere in the middle.

    I live in Mansfield Texas and can probably only make a Sunday or Thursday Meetup.

      I can do Sunday assuming it isn't late in the evening. Thursdays too I guess, but that would be harder and would change from semester to semester.

      October 28, 2012

    • Megan E.

      I definitely can't do thursdays, this semester at least. Sundays would be ok.

    Hey, I know there's a room in the back of Big Mike's Coffee Shop (1306 West Hickory Street) that we can reserve. I'm trying to figure out how to reserve it, and I'll try to get it for a weekend in November. Any suggestions on exactly what day? Maybe Saturday, Nov. 10 @ 6pm?

    October 25, 2012

    • Megan E.

      Sounds good to me. I have a thing to go to earlier that day, but I should be back by then.

      Yeah, that's fine for me.

    I will be out of town that weekend, but I would love to get together the next time you guys do it.

    October 25, 2012

  • Drew

    A coffee shop would be a good idea, but they are kind of loud. Maybe we could find a less crowded coffee shop or a bookstore.

    I don't have any administrator privileges on this site, but I'll look around Denton for good places to meet and post later. If anyone has any ideas for meeting places or times, please feel free to post.

      I can't comment on places but the weekend would be best for me too. I'm pretty flexible as long as I know in advance.

    I just found this on google but I would definitely be interested. I don't know any other adults with Asperger's and I'd welcome the opportunity to meet other members of the community in Denton.

    I would love to be part of a meet-up group in Denton, unfortunately I have had some health issues lately. I feel bad for suggesting the idea and not following up on it, but some things superseded. If anyone else would like to take the lead and set it up I will love to be part of it.

    Hey, is this still in the works? I'd really appreciate an Adult Aspergers group in Denton. About times and places: there's a coffee shop near Fry Street called Big Mike's that loans out a back room to organizations; and, personally, a weekend evening would be best for me (though I can be flexible).

    October 11, 2012

  • Megan E.

    I think this would be a good idea. Let's make it happen! Anyone have ideas for when or where?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
