In November 1976, Ted sent Liz a letter full of double meaning which leads to believe he was indirectly talking about how and why he chose his victims. This letter is his response to the one sent by Liz  in which she expressed her feelings of being afraid of establishing relationships with people :

You see yourself withdrawing from people, afraid to establish friendships, loveships. I have known people who, without saying a word, radiate vulnerability. Their facial expressions say “I am afraid of you.” These people invite abuse. I don’t know why but they do. Is it their self-concept? By expecting to be hurt do they subtly encourage it? And if some mental switch could be thrown and tomorrow they expected to be happy and excited with each person they met, could that happen, too?
