Hello, my name is generalschrimpf (my friends call me Shrimp) and I am a classified 'Over-sensitive guy'.

But, I'd like to know, "Is there such thing as 'too sensitive'"???

Click the following below, reasons why I am asking are in it x3



Is there such thing as 'too sensitive'? I have been called that many times in my life, and I'm told most women find it as a 'turn off'. (May explain why I have a hard time finding a girlfriend )

Let me know your thoughts!

That is a standard and standards are objective. But yes. Take autism. Some of them are incredibly sensitive to the point that we consider it a disorder, and that's just one symptom.

There is a thing as too sensitive. Whereas you can't say certain things to a person because you know they're going to be upset about or whatnot or perhaps it's that they lack a sense of humour. In my case however I know too many Overly Sensitive people that it bores me.

Man, I gotta learn to articulate what I mean... I don't mean 'over-sensitive' as in 'can't take a joke'. I've had cancer, I laugh at cancer jokes all the damn time... I mean over-sensitive that touch/gooey romantic movies/Mangas make someone react in a sensitive way.

If you're talking about that, then it's not being over-sensitive. If a book/movie makes you tear up, then that's ok. But if you constantly cry about it..

Oh no, I get over it relatively quick, I think the longest I sulked was for like 15 minutes... Not proud to say, it was Titanic that did it to me xD granted I saw it after breaking up with my first girlfriend and I was young and ignorant xD

Sometimes I am sensitive to really good shows and movies (for some reason, they are always animated), so I guess you could say I can get "too sensitive."

Maybe you're just surrounded by assholes.

It's a matter of perspective. People's opinions of over-sensitive relies on their own sensitivity. if someone is already an emotional person, I would assume that they would see a more emotive response normal than to say, someone who is "hardy" who might think it as an over-the-top reaction.

Yes and no.

To feel is one thing. To lack control is another.

I don't mind other hypersensitive individuals like myself, my problem is when they use their feelings as justification for wrongdoing. In those cases they aren't fuckwits because they're 'too sensitive', they're just fuckwits who make excuses.

This is fine. If you took a knife over it, it be wrong. It's pretty simple.

I think it's better than being apathetic. If you can't relate to anything be that people or stories that's kinda weird and kinda boring, emotions are what make life interesting. I don't see why anyone finds apathetic people cool cause it seems like there kinda removed from what normal humans do. I think your fine from what you said about yourself it's just that people have a aversion towards emotions and can demonize any emotion other than being happy, which is funny because it's such a myopic view.

^ also what princejudar said.

It doesn't mean you're not masculine or anything... I think women tend to appreciate that their man has feelings. LOL...

You wouldn't date a doormat, so don't feel like you have to be a doormat....
