Our expert says:
The person you descib does indeed sound antisocial. YOu don't need to feel sorry for him--- with such a person, it's usually other people who bear the burden of his disorder. As you said --- he is content.
It will be impossible for you to help him. Such people can only be helped, if at all, by highly skilled therapy by a fully qualified therapist, and then only if the person recognizes that they have a problem and sincerely wants to change.
What you are finding sad isn't his state --- mhe is content --- but that you are having to recognize the gulf between who you thought he was and could be, and who he actually was and is.
The more important question now, is why you feel so driven to try to help someone who does notwant help, and does not even need the sort of help you could offer. You can only make yourself vulnerable to being hurt. Why do you feel he has to be helped, and that you have to do it ?
