When and how did you become aware that you're an HSP? And how did you learn about our group?

I came across this group while looking for a local group of people that were more like me who I could connect with at a deeper level. I am seeking a community of people who are like minded and like hearted.

Have you read any of Elaine Aron's books about the HSP trait? Which ones?

I have read The Highly Sensitive Person and recently started reading The Highly Sensitive Person In Love. I have also read several very interesting books about the different Myers-Briggs types that included detailed descriptions of what life is often like for highly sensitive INFP people like me.

How have you experienced being an HSP? Please share a couple of examples of how being Highly Sensitive affects your life.

I tend to 'feel' a lot of the energies in a situation or a place. I have studied energetic healing and Reiki and I tend to be very heart-driven so I feel a lot more than most of the people around me. It is often difficult for me to be around crowds.

What sort of activities do you enjoy? Besides just "meeting to talk," what sort of activities (if any) would you enjoy, as part of an HSP meetup group?

I love to be in natural settings -tranquil places. Beauty is important to me too. I am more introverted, but I love being by the water and sharing with people who also share honestly from their hearts. I love music and concerts and movies as well.

What do you hope to get from your membership in our HSP meetup? (i.e. friendship, activity partners, support, networking, etc)

My hope is to cultivate deep and lasting friendships. I have very few 'local' people with whom I share a spiritual connection. Most of my 'friends' live far away. I want to meet friends with whom I can share day to day experiences and activities.


I can't believe a group like this exists and that it's a thriving one at that. I look forward to meeting and getting to know other 'sensitive' people like myself. It will be especially nice to make some new friends that will actually understand me.
