Though Sookie tried to explain she could hear people's thoughts, the therapist convinced herself and Sookie's parents that Sookie could just naturally interpret people's body language. Never really dated anyone because she could always hear the crude, sex-crazed thoughts of her dates. Lived her entire life filtering out people's thoughts until she met vampire Bill Compton whose vamp mind she couldn't hear at all.
