What was it like sharing such intimate quarters with just one man?

Well, it’s really a series of male roommates, and we had four to six people living together at any given time. It was tough, though: Here are all of these hot American boys around me, and I could have none of it! There were two or three times when I developed close relationships with a fellow missionary'closer than he might have liked. The intimacy scared us both to death. It was the worst two years of my life.
