First dates that extend past two hours are not my cuppa tea.I never “go for drinks” because bars make me so uncomfortable and are too loud and overstimulating.They are usually loud and overstimulating, so I can never focus on the guy and our conversation.There’s just too much happening around me, too many energies to take in, that I’m never my best self.I know exactly how to get there and how long it will take me. I know how the restaurant is set up, the atmosphere, the menu.
Those few weeks were intense ones for me and I need time by myself to let go of all my visions for what could have been and to find myself again.
Then, the date itself is draining, especially if the date isn’t going well and I’m trying to find a polite way to end it.
Usually, I enjoy the dates while I’m on them and truly enjoy getting to know someone new and discovering shared interests, but I’m also ready to call it a night after dinner.
Over the past few years, I’ve had my fair share of good dates and bad dates.
And before I learned about my HSP trait, I often thought there was something weird or wrong with me.
