Good read and thanks for sharing, as someone that has “figured out” that I was an empath I have come to the conclusion that you have to hide this side of yourself when dealing with the opposite sex. Being sensitive is a turn off to women, they view you as another woman without knowing it.
When dealing with women, their feelings or better yet how you make them feel is the guiding factor in the relationship. To counter being an empath I have become dominant with women and it works well, also living out on some land and away from large population centers seems to be grounding, along with living with pets and nature all around.
I cannot watch tv anymore, too much bad news and violent movies bother me.
I have to shield myself from the bad news of the world, whats the point in hearing all the bad things around, when it is out of our hands.
I pick and choose who I let in and who I allow to “dump” their problems on.
Being an empath that is really tuned in can help you deal with men and women, but especially women, you have to “know” what they want, being sensitive with women is a losing prospect, they just aren’t wired to respond to it and you probably attracted dominate women, which is not a great relationship dynamic for an empath.
