Well, life in relationships with others is messy at times. You will not always agree, nor will you give up your values and these things will be a challenge as you work to make agreements with 30 or more adults with differing values and experiences. Avoidance is the most common form of conflict resolution. It's easy to avoid your neighbors in the regular world, its pretty hard in cohousing world. So you will eventually need to work on whatever your issues are. You may never have any either. Some people don't. But I will say this. Life in community is not for everyone. The good news for cohousing is that if you make a mistake, you can almost always sell your unit and get most your investment back. This is not true in some other kinds of community.

In other words she reads the co-housing and sees more "confrontational material" than she is comfortable with. I say that people have a tendency to talk about their problems more than successes. I find it interesting and stimulating to see how people do or dont work things out. She finds it worrisome. It would be really great to see a flood of one line, "I think co housing is great because....." messages to keep things in balance.
