But people who groom are usually very good at gaining people’s trust. They may have done this before and learned a lot about how to manipulate young people and what to say to them so that they can abuse them.
Try to think about how the person you’re worried about arrived in your life.
Or, if you’ve known them a long time, was there a time when they started behaving differently towards you?
What sort of things did they say or do that made you trust them? Have there been any warning signs that they’re grooming you?
