I'd like to try to answer. (as a card carrying, diagnosed schiz).

I'd say, learn all you can about it, specifically about 'intrasychic structure', that is to say things like the inner conflicts which give rise to the desire to connect in collision with aversion and distancing.
As you learn to understand what's going on, you'll find ways to communicate, and also to know when not to try to, and hopefully, your person will feel understood, and, actually this is what many schizs long for, to be understood, but not appropriated from or overwhelmed.

I got my education about it from the Masterson Klein literature. Also, try
www.selfinexile.com which attempts to explain in some depth.

Unhappy Re: Welcome to the Schizoid Personality Disorder forum

I had him read a part that I think discribes him to a T and he said he didn't recognize any of it. He thinks his reasons are valid ones and they are not a problem.

I have done things that I know that to someone else would look and seem schizy, but to me they were absolutely sensible.
It would seem right to him.
If you like, would you like to share an example??
I'll try to see if I can make sense of it...?
