I think he just need someone to vent too. - September 11th 2012, 08:37 PM

Well I guess he is a friend of a friend really I have met him 4 times and spoke to him a bit, over the last couple of months I havenít spoke to him it doesnít bother me. Well recently he has started talking to me a lot more he also hasnít been talking to our friend (They used to talk all the time) He started being a bit funny toward her.

Well anyway over the last couple of says her speaks to me few hours. We have long convocations about stuff mostly his problem (Heís transgender and is having difficulty fitting in to college) I donít know how to help him. Anyway but then he does pretty much one word answers which mean he doesnít want to continue with the convocation.

I think he only want to talk to me to vent as he hasnít been able to talk to our friend not because I give good advice its my advice is awful. I donít mind people venting to me I enjoy listening.. Or reading but still.
What do you think? Is he just venting or is he wanting a convocation.

It sounds like he is wanting to vent. You make him feel better it seems, you also are a person who doesn't judge him. Think about, he is transgender. A lot people are judgmental of that and you're not. It's natural for him to want to gravitate towards you. He trusts you, and feels as though you care. Well, that's how it seems to me. It's up to you whether or not you're willing to only talk to him when he vents to you, or if you want to talk about other things. If it's the latter, which is what it sounds like to me, you can lightly change the subject. If he keeps saying one words answers, stop talking to him. If this continues- talk to him about. Tell him you truly enjoy helping him out, but you'd also like if you both could have conversations about different things.

Since your his friend he wants your support, comfort, advice.
Loads of teenagers in college can be judgmental not all but some and that's what freaks him out. You make him feel okay. To help him out be there for him or you can try and make him fit in with the other students in college that's the only way to help him and feel confident. He's got problems and he cares about what other people think about him hes nervous to make friends and fit in with the other people. If he talks all the time about his problem and you want to talk about something else say to him nicely that you are happy to be there for him and help but it be good if we could talk about something else.
