I am involved with a gal now who isn't confident at all. Have you ever been around a dog or some other pet that has been beaten? Ya know that tail tucked between the legs kinda look? That's like the vibe I am getting from this gal. She rarely speaks up. Talking to her on the phone is such a PITA because I have to ask her to repeat everything. At her apartment, I can barely hear her. I have told her time and time again to look at me first when she is speaking (so at least I can read her lips). It's gotten to the point where I am thinking she is hiding something. What? I have no idea. I'm kinda pulling my hair out here. And in the interest of full disclosure, she used to be an anorexic. She is on some small dose of Prozac, I guess, for mild depression. I do NOT think she was the purging (read vomitting ) type of anorexic but her teeth were still harmed from being anorexic, although not visibly like when she talks or smiles. Maybe she still feels self-concsious about it. Any suggestions?
