I like this interaction a lot, I like seeing Roomie opening herself up and sharing her vulnerabilities. It's so difficult to do, especially when you've built yourself such a happy-go-lucky exterior, that's so automatic sometimes (not necessarily insincere, just a little too automatic at times) that the exterior image you've built seeps into the interior, and you forget you have vulnerabilities, you forget you have needs that cry for attention, and that you too need reassurance and tenderness when you feel down.
That's what I imagine Roomie might feel anyway, totally randomly guessing here ;)
