I am 22, and I am asking this question because as Empaths, we generally are able to feel the emotions of others and it is different than normal people who can't who can't read or feel another person.
I mean that we can tell if a person's feeling is true and all without having to go through the conversation and telling face-to-face.
I was in a relationship once but it was only because the other person truly loved me but I broke up because there wasn't really anything else in common and it took a hard time for me to severe the empathic link so I can move on.
Ever since the past month, I started to be able to also see images instead of just feeling emotions when I try to connect to a person's mind.
Like there was a guy today who wanted to talk to me and when I tried to connect to his mind, I saw his intention and I ignored him afterwards.
Even though I am a psychology major student, I rely more on my abilities than what I learned in school.
I used to feel everyone's emotions' on a deeper level at first, but I have learned control myself and selectively choose or connect.
When friends asked me about me being single , I'll just say random excuses but the truth is, I don't think it is worth the risk as myself being what I am.
It's like a very rare chance to find someone.
(I told people that I never had a relationship because it was not in the open)
