Dating and relationships can be hard work for many of us.This week, I want to share a resource that helped me personally many years ago, before I was married, before I met my husband.She writes about boundaries, noticing red flags and learning discernment, all things we need as emotionally sensitive people when we are putting our vulnerable selves out into the world.Our innate nature is the result of our conditioning as well as genetics.The world has become a very casual place when it comes to dating and relationships, and if you are looking for something committed, you have to understand your own self and your own boundaries.If you are dating and finding it a hard world to navigate, I highly recommend checking out Natalie’s wonderful website.
I have friends who only went on one or two dates before meeting the love of their life. There’s nothing to say that going on a lot of dates will yield a boyfriend that going on as few dates as possible will yield singleness. And the truth is that dating when you’re a highly sensitive person and an introvert is a vastly different experience.I am a highly sensitive person, and I love one too. On the other hand, it can be the most passionate and loving experience, filled with sensual adventures…ahem. When I talk about sensitive, I don’t mean childish and prone to tantrums, well, not for the most part.I speak of a unique character which is gifted in the ability to bond with emotions.If you are with a man who is highly sensitive it’s a good thing, but it also requires a tad bit more of understanding and “sensitivity” on your part.How we treat people reflects our state of maturity.
