Highly Sensitive People: Are Long-Lasting Quality Relationships Possible?

I'm happy to say that it's definitely possible! Today my wife and I are celebrating our 42nd Wedding Anniversary! You don't have to be married 42 years to have a loving, supportive, and satisfying relationship, but I want to emphasize that you can have the relationship that you desire. It's hard to believe how fast times goes by. Many wonderful things have happened, such as the birth of our daughter, the great family experiences, the joy we received from our many pets, and the personal triumphs that my wife and I had. There were difficult times when we had family problems, personal tragedies, financial difficulties, and bouts of getting on each other's nerves! Full disclosure....My wife is much easier to get along with than I…

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!

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: Am I Being Too “Sensitive” About This Pet Peeve?

I read something recently about men posing with dogs on dating online sites. It turns out that they didn't actually own these dogs! They were trying to attract women 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 people…

Highly Sensitive People/ Introverts: How To Attract Your Tribe And Find People Like Yourself

An easy way to become more interesting is to have a hobby. Highly sensitive people/introverts are naturally curious and usually have a vast number of interests. What are you interested in?  Do you share your passions with others? Are you a collector?

If not, you’re missing a perfect opportunity to attract the types of people who are “good” for you. By that, I mean that you can use your hobby as a vehicle to help you socialize with people who share your interests. Maybe your hobby can even be a catalyst to starting your own business or give you ideas that you may not have thought of. (more…)
