Hello, I’m not quite sure how to do this.

Can anyone help me out for a minute?

Uhm. What’s up?

Thanks, and thanks to everyone else. I guess I can’t reply to you all at once.

I think I upset my flatmate. Well I say upset but it’s different than…

You have to keep in mind, some subjects may be very sensitive to some people. Did you say something that might have hit a nerve or two?

Maybe?  I think that was what set him off.  I can’t be sure.  It’s a bit personal.

I think it’s actually the personal part that’s giving me a hard time.  I’d sort of suspected something like this but I probably can’t ask him about it without setting him off again.  I’m not sure what I should do.

Again… I’d just like to put in my two cents that… if he’s really upset, give him some space. I mean, don’t leave the flat or anything, but just let him be. Then maybe… try to talk to him? Not everything is… good to talk about.

No, I realise that.  I’m letting him alone for now, thank you to everyone who suggested that.

I suppose… my main issue is that I’m not sure how to deal with it from here.  I sort of want to ask him but I don’t want to upset him anymore.  I just don’t know what I’m expected to do, and I would like to tell him it’s all right, but… I’m not sure what the boundaries are for something like this.
