Highly sensitive men dating
This can be hard, but it helps if you’re willing to talk openly about your emotions and, most of all, if you have (or teach yourself) good listening skills.When the HSP can talk about what they feel, and they know that it’s being heard and accepted, they’ll know they’ve got a keeper.As a man, it's unusual to get into a bubble bath just to relax and feel the bubbles around my toes. I've been sitting here, in my bath, for over 30 minutes and I feel like every single problem has melted away. To do this, I close my eyes and hold my palms outwards, then I turn in a circle until I feel something. The other day my toddler lost his cup of water somewhere in the house. Men deserve some self-love too I had this really tasty spicy garlic ramen for dinner but now I'm lying awake in bed because I'm so bothered by my garlic breath. Sometimes it’s just a feeling that maybe I should look over here but other times I get the feeling that it’s in the same room as me but I need to narrow it down.(If you’ve ever seen someone cry because of good news, they may have been highly sensitive.) As a result, HSPs take relationships slowly, especially at the beginning.Don’t be surprised if your HSP needs time to themselves or seems “lukewarm” at first.
HSPs don’t even do this consciously; they just process the signals and “absorb” what you’re feeling. Your stress is their stress, and your suppressed anger is their all-night worry session.
This is “the deal” with dating an HSP: Once they truly trust you, they share their brilliance as well as their vulnerability. This is because stimulation of all kinds — social or otherwise — can quickly overwhelm an HSP’s senses, and they need time without stimulation to “come down.” If you’re living together, your HSP may have a room that’s just theirs and ask you never to enter.
If you live separately, they may seem to vanish for a few days (or an afternoon) to process.
Most of that judgement from other people is in my head but I no matter how much I tell myself this I have a really hard time coping with failure. but I feel inexplicably pressured to prove this to other people as though everyone doubts me.
I'm irrationally afraid that other people's opinions of me will diminish if they find out. How have other hsps managed to overcome their really strong emotional attachment to pride and that hsp need to accepted by everyone?
