I don't mind to be sensitive, but I have to be honest, even if I sometimes sugarcoat on some people.

Yeah you are sensitive from what I read on your post.

But who cares if you are? It's fine really

There is such a thing as being too sensitive but reading romance novels has nothing to do with it. I suspect that these people who said you were being too sensitive were either:

  • tactfully informing you that geeking-out about something they aren't interested in while they are present is distasteful, or
  • not attracted to you personally or romantically.

Ehh... I've practically felt no emotion for 30+ years now but from what you've said I wouldn't classify you as "overly sensitive" but you're definitely sensitive to some degree. Then again, it's all objective so it's not like it really matters. You are who you are and if people don't like it, fuck them.

My sister is overly sensitive in two ways. Say something she doesn't like and you are "mean". Brush her cheek with a feather and she will scream "ow".

Sensitivity is simply responding to a stimulus. One's perception of "over sensitivity" is based on their personal scale of "no reaction" to "over reaction".

If they perceive you over react and exceed their threshold, that would lead to a label of oversensitive. Humans tend to gather together on their definition of normalcy (media, wanting to fit in, and what not), so it makes sense that multiple people would see you in the same light.

My advice is for you to stop saying "you can't girlfriend". I could have a boyfriend right now if I wanted one, it just wouldn't be someone I actually like. I'm sure it is the same for you. If those girls feel you are oversensitive they weren't a good match for you. You probably hate hearing it, but you probably aren't meeting the right type of girls. "Any" is not a type.

I have pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I can't meet a male who is as much of as an otaku as me because he would also never leave his room other than to work.... I could date a non-otaku but I wouldn't be happy.

If you accept the way you are and aren't particularly hurt by the label, you should embrace it. Is I've seen grown men cry over baseball, or cry over movies where the dog dies. Your heel just happens to be manga.

Personally, I am not okay with seeing men cry. No tears. No. But to see that a man is touched by something is quite lovely. I'm a traditional type woman one day hoping to be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen making my husband dinner for when he comes in from work. If I saw him cry I would only think the worst ie, someone died, he lost his job, end of the world. I would be quite stressed if it happened regularly.

Sorry for this long post. Do you actually cry over this stuff or is the label just because you read it?

Also everyone please stop saying objective. You really mean subjective.

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

I'm a huge sucker for romance novels (whether they be graphic (Manga) or written (As most Western books are).
(If I have any of that info wrong, feel free to correct me. No, I will not cry over that.)
HOWEVER, I will cry over a good, GOOD book. I recently just started (and finished in 3 days) a manga titled 'GE ~Good Ending'. It takes place in High School (as most Manga's do) and it stars a clumsy, yet sensitive guy named Seiji Utsumi. He's in love with a girl named Shou (he calls her Senpai, seeing as she's the eldest/coaches the club), and while he spies on her during her tennis club practice, another girl by the name of Yuki Kurokawa notices and leads him to joining the club under false pretenses. I won't spoil anything from there, I recommend you read it. It's a fantastic Manga (and I tend to read a lot, but if one grasps my attention, such as this one, I have a hard time putting it down!)
But anyways, not meaning to advertise on a General Discussion forum about Manga, back to the subject at hand...


I think it's a bit of a dickhead move to toss that in a spoiler and waste my time reading it....

That's a bait and switch technique and a bit spammy.

Maybe I'm too sensitive..

Anyhow, sensitivity, I believe there's way too much of. Empathy, there's not quite enough of. Politeness, there's not enough of.

damned abstract concepts have too many meanings and synonyms.
