Dating and the hsp
We are human and none of us is perfect in any way, so why do we feel the need to judge anyone?
If you are with a highly sensitive boyfriend or husband you will have noticed that they need to be handled with more understanding and love than someone with a “balanced” sensitivity.
Of course this is just a part of their personality but certain aspects might look a little “extreme” to you and even work into your relationship.
The best way to deal with it is to allow them their space.
Highly sensitive people are bound to project their sensitivity in some manner in certain aspects of their life.
If you unknowingly step on his wounds, he will feel hurt and offended. For example, he probably hates being teased in a certain way because of how it made him feel as a kid when his friends teased him that way.
So you won’t even know if you actually did something to hurt them.
The best way to judge if your boyfriend or husband is hurt is to look out for some anger or dullness in their voice when they talk to you. You might unconsciously behave in a manner that might hurt him, and this can get a little frequent because of his high sensitivity.
Our innate nature is the result of our conditioning as well as genetics.
In other words what we feel at a deep level cannot really change much.
On the upside sensitive men can make for great partners because they will be very devoted to you once they find solace in your company.
