Curious: I'll tell you what I'm thinking and then you can let me know your opinion on this. This man has exposed himself to two other women previous to the one he was a caregiver to. I believe he's an exhibitionist with erotic thoughts about Jean (yes, not her real name). I think it's possible (emphasis on possible) that he will be visiting Jean sometime, or doing some kind of handyman job around the house, excuse himself to the bathroom and come out to expose himself to her. I think the man is testing the waters to see if she might be receptive to him. He desperately wants to have sex with this woman. He is preying on her loneliness. As far as Jean goes, I am concerned that she was not more disturbed by his invitation for her to watch him, and then for him to watch her. Jean has had some sexual abuse in her life, and she might be exercising a learned helplessness and becoming the victim like it is an automatic response with her. That's where I'm at on this issue at the present. I'd appreciate any insight you could provide.
