Highly sensitive people and dating
When a highly sensitive person feels and trusts that they are safe with you, they will give you access to the richness and beauty that is their soul. If you live in a noisier area or have loud neighbors, invest in sound proofing your walls.Being in an intimate relationship with a highly sensitive partner is one of the rarest gifts if you know how to make them feel comfortable with you. Knowing that your partner is easily overstimulated by their environment, you can proactively calibrate your home environment to better suit them. The less stimulating an environment is, the more your highly sensitive partner will feel like they can let their guard down and really be there with you.

There’s a reason I wear ear plugs so often in my daily life when I’m outside of the house. So even if your highly sensitive partner says that they’re fine, really make it known that you are always happy to make their sensitivity a priority.
