Highly Sensitive People: Where can you find other HSPs?

I got many comments about my post last week, about men posing with dogs, not theirs, to attract women under false pretentious. I’ve been asked how normal and honest highly sensitive people can meet for friendships, romance, or both! Can any of you relate to this dilemma?

I’ve been out of the dating scene for many years. Next week, my wife and I will be married 42 years! I can only make an educated guess!

Well, highly sensitive people are everywhere, generally speaking, but not likely in certain venues.

If you work or attend classes or go to meetings, some of the people there would be HSPs. Your next-door neighbor could be a HSP. They may not even know they are HSPs, but they usually know they are different from other people. They don’t wear signs (it’s not advisable to call undue attention to oneself). (more…)

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: If your life were to end soon, what would you regret?

The tragic events that happened on 09/11/01 caused many people to reassess their lives. Many of them made major changes in their lives by moving to a different location, changing careers, improve and appreciate their relationships, ending relationships, and have been motivated to make other improvements in their lives. It's not my intent to be morbid or make you feel worse about this horrific incident, but this might be a time to reflect on our lives. HSPs are definitely capable of deep-thought! The people who perished that day had no idea what would happen. This inspired me to write this post about regrets that these people might have had. I'm sure that we all can relate to some of these. This is a thought-provoking article…

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Where were you on 9/11/01?

Where were you on 9/11/01? I realize that some of you weren’t born or lived in another country, but I felt compelled to summarize the events that happened that day to tell you the important lessons that I learned. This is a question that many of us may be contemplating on yet another sad anniversary of that fateful day. It’s hard to believe all the years that have passed since that beautiful sunny day when the skies suddenly filled with fire and smoke, buildings collapsed, and people were running for their lives.

I was in Jersey City, New Jersey. The weather was perfect, and it seemed like it was going to be a normal and pleasant day. At 8:45 am, all of that changed. I heard on my car radio that a World Trade Center building had been struck by an airplane. (more…)

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Am I Being Too “Sensitive” About This?

I read something recently about men posing with their dogs on dating online sites. It turns out that they didn't actually own these dogs! They were trying to attract girls through the false pretense that they were dog owners. I've been out of the dating scene for over forty years. Am I being too "sensitive" to believe that this is reprehensible behavior? I definitely have a "pet peeve" about this! I realize that this is a little thing to be bothered about compared to the rest of the problems of the world, but this is troubling to me. Don't these people realize that they'll be caught in this lie? Is this a good way to start an honest relationship? I guess I'm old-fashioned about how…
