According to research, as many as 1 in 5 people can be qualified as highly sensitive. Now imagine if you will, that every time a left-handed guy did something left-handed, they were teased and put down, made to feel different and ashamed. Men are right-handed.

The highly sensitive person makes one of the most passionate and caring lovers in the world. Since they are so in-tune with others and deeply empathetic, they always treat their loved ones with respect and devotion. A highly sensitive person has a difficult time trying to function in a world that feels incredibly overwhelming. Sometimes they feel misunderstood. All they really want in a love relationship is to find someone who understands and respects their sensitivity.
8 Things You Need To Know About A Sensitive Man Before Dating One
There is something to be said about dating a sensitive guy compared to a macho man. How we come off to a sensitive guy is completely different. Things we typically say that we wouldn't even second guess, could make him go crazy. Games we usually play with boys don't work on them.
