Thanx guys. I understand your concerns given what little info I have provided. I am actually moving in with three people. I met the other two last night. One of them is younger and has many things in common with me...the other is also younger and shows all the signs and symptoms of a sexual abuse survivor...inability to make eye contact, looking ashamed alot, loath to make anything but superficial conversation....Gawd! I got a twin!
I mostly know what little there is to know about him through the other two, but my own impression of him bears out everything they said: that he's just confused and anxious and doesn't like to open up to people.
I'm just going to be as nice as I can to him and hope that he can begin to feel safe with me. He voted for having me live there so he must feel some level of comfort with me.
It might be hard to see him going through this process all alone(If that's what it is), but I know better than to prod or try to get him to open up b4 he's ready 2.
They all seem like very sweet and honest individuals. Of course it will be an adventure, but it always is. You can't always solve your problems, but sometimes you can trade them for different ones to break the monotony.
