Have you ever wondered what it is like to be in a relationship with a highly sensitive person? These special souls take their friendships and relationships very seriously. They love wholeheartedly, and they feel everything deeper and stronger.
Here are 8 things that every highly sensitive person needs in a relationship.
1. THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO HOLD ON YOUR EMOTIONS
They want the truth. Honesty really is your best policy when you are in a relationship with a sensitive person because they are extremely sensitive to energies and vibrations and they can sense lies immediately. Also, they are honest about their feelings, and they expect the same from you. They don’t want anything hidden. They don’t want to play games. They want a relationship that is based on mutual trust, love, and honesty.
2. THEY WANT YOU TO RESPECT THEIR HEIGHTENED EMOTIONS AND SENSITIVITY
Their emotions are as deep as the ocean. Their vivid inner world makes them highly sensitive to everything around them, especially sensitive to pain and negative vibrations. They often get hurt because they wear their heart on their sleeve. Their personality is complex and deep. They know that and they long to have a partner who can understand them and respect their emotional and sensitive nature.
3. THEY WANT YOU TO ALLOW THEM TO HAVE THEIR ALONE TIME
Highly sensitive people get easily overwhelmed and they need their alone time to decompress more than anyone. Their alone time is crucial for their health and well-functioning. Sometimes they can isolate themselves for days. And they need someone who understands their need to spend time alone.
4. THEY NEED YOU TO STIMULATE THEIR MIND
Sensitive people need constant emotional and mental stimulation. They can’t engage in meaningless and shallow conversations and relationships. They are always delving deep into the nature of things. They want to talk about space, aliens, anything hidden. They want to discuss with you the secrets of the universe and how the mind and emotions work.
5. THEY WANT YOU TO BE AFFECTIONATE WITH THEM
And show them plenty of love as well. They are relieved by receiving loving and nurturing energy, so don’t hold back on showing your affection to them. They need it the most.
6. THEY NEED SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T TRY TO CHANGE THEM
They need to feel accepted as they are. They want you to love them for the sensitive person they are. Their emotional responses are something that they can’t control at times and they need you to be supportive. They need you to be there for them.
7. THEY NEED YOU TO HELP THEM FALL ASLEEP AT NIGHT
Their minds can sometimes run wild and they often have a hard time falling asleep at night, struggling to quiet their thoughts and calm their emotions. So, they need you to talk gently to them. To calm them. To cuddle with them. Anything that brings you closer together.
8. THEY NEED YOU TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO GO OUT AND DO THE THINGS THEY LOVE
Sensitive people can sometimes become hermits and get themselves comfortable into the habit of staying home, so they need someone who will push them forward and get them out of their comfort zone while inspiring them to pursue their dreams.
