You are absolutely right.
To cut a long story short, my other flatmates have identified that this guy has some pretty major issues. Sex addiction is one. Drug addiction is suspected. After a long talk last night, it was decided to ask him to leave.
What happened was this: he offered me emotional and physical intimacy STRAIGHT away. It was all too easy. I got caught in a whirlwind.
I trust my flatmates deeply- they know me well, and they said that they were very worried about my safety with this guy, because I was behaving so strangely and in such an unbalanced way. In retrospect, yes, I was.
What terrifies me is that I have now identified that my physical and emotional need for intimacy is so deep and so easily nourished, that I'm actually putting myself at risk of serious hurt and serious dysfunction.
I feel devestated.
