I've been reading a bit more about empaths and I've read about something that sounds very familiar to me. Do any of the empaths on here find that people seem to fall in love with them way too quickly? Like you meet them and the next day you are getting messages saying that they are in love with you. Or do you guys attract really weird obsessive types that just never get over you?
At the risk of sounding really conceited, these are the kinds of things that happen to me all the time. One of my friends has apparently loved me since we were like 9 (and we are 25), another since I was 12 and two of my ex's still aren't over me. Another one of my friends also has a thing for me and he never let's girls get close to him. They are the main ones but there are others.
A few other girls who are empaths have posted similar things on the net and I'm wondering if it's just coincidence or if the two are linked, cause that would explain a lot. I'm not exactly supermodel material and I'm a bit weird so I just can't think of what it would be about me that would inspire such devotion aside from this.
It's actually really annoying me because the empath thing means that every time I get into a new relationship I get a wave of guilt and upset from all angles cause my little 'following' as it were is upset. A lot of these guys are really good friends and I've told them all where I stand and hence where they stand but they can't seem to get over it.
I would love to hear about any similar experiences from other empaths and any methods they have for managing it. Anything would help.
