When a guy looks at a woman, from his unique perspective, one of the key things he sees is how sensitive you are.
It can truly be a pass or fail characteristic.
If you refuse to show a guy your sensitive side, he will most likely feel that you have too much masculine energy.
Guys like strong women, but they would prefer a ladies touch.
To begin with, it's important to understand just what sensitivity is.
Sensitivity, or being sensitive, is just one of those things that people experience when there is emotion.
It's responsiveness to things around you; a general sense of what's going on.
For example, if your guy likes to tell jokes, you may be overly sensitive to the topic.
Or, if your guy likes to watch TV rather than take a scroll on the beach; then you may be sensitive about how he spends his time.
When a comment stings you, breathe deeply several times, and then figure out a way to excuse yourself from the conversation (even if that means you have to make something up).
But be careful because if this becomes a habit; it will be noticed by your guy.
Super sensitivity is sometimes the result of "it's all about me" syndrome.
Try not to let your ego get in the way of having a good time.
Most jokes and/or comments are not about you.
However, if you find yourself getting offended easily by simple things that are said; maybe you should do a self-evaluation.
Ask yourself: Is there validity to the things being said? If so, do you wish to make changes? When you're dating a guy who thinks you're too sensitive and he's expressed that to you, don't overlook that.
He's telling you for a reason.
Likely because men just aren't attracted to drama queens and that may very well be how he views you.
If he has to constantly deal with putting out the emotional fire after you've become upset, that gets tiring and old very quickly.
He'll label you as high maintenance and will want to move on to someone who is easy going and less sensitive.
On another note men are sensitive too.
If you find yourself feeling attacked, try not to lash out at your guy.
This can create unnecessary friction.
Guys pretend to be carefree and tough, but they actually take everything you say to heart for consideration.
Therefore, if you feel that you are the overly sensitive type who likes to fire back with serious comments, you should avoid joking at all.
I know this sounds boring, but being dumped is no fun, and if you keep being dramatic; dumped is where you'll be.
Remember, it's okay to be sensitive, but keep things in perspective.
