This is my son. He is high functioning autistic and extremely extroverted. He loves people, and loves being around them. It can kind of suck, because he is almost 13, and most other 13 year olds see his behavior as odd and quirky so they don't seek out friendships with him. He has a few good friends he has had for years, but I can tell as he heads towards his teenage years that things might be difficult for him.
