depressed because i'm sensitve - March 19th 2012, 06:21 AM

not thinking about suicide, or anything drastic. just feeling really depressed.

i'm a guy, and i feel as if i'm too sensitive and soft. i'm not gay, i just don't feel like i fit in with my friends. they're very masculine, rough, fighters, and i can hold my own with them since i train with them. but i'm also the youngest and smallest. they also are all very athletic and i'm the nerd of the group. every girl i've dated just, i don't feel can handle them, so they've never met any of them. while i love my friends, and they would say the same for me, i just feel too soft. i watch (this girl got me into it) korean dramas every once in a while, and i even cried watching one. i even cried after i lost one of my jiu-jitsu tournament in front of my friend! i'm so embarrassed of who i am. i've never told my friends i watch kdramas, or listen to sad songs. i try to hide my sensitive side from ppl, especially my best friends.

There's nothing wrong with being sensitive. Everyone is different and you should be respected just the way you are. If you really feel its a problem I'd talk to a therapist, etc about it. If you ever need anyone to talk too, feel free to message me.

Hey, absolutely nothing wrong with being sensitive. Especially in relationships, it's an advantage because girls love a sensitive guy and you won't be one of those neanderthal morons who doesn't listen to them. My boyfriend is quite sensitive but I would never think anything less of him because of that, in fact it's something I fell in love with pretty fast. And his friends don't think of him as particularly sensitive, but everyone, guys and girls like spending time with him because he listens to people and can be empathetic ~ a quality that often comes with sensitivity.
I can also guarantee you that your male friends are probably a bit more sensitive than they'd like to let on too, you don't tell them that you watch the dramas or listen to sad songs for the same reason one of them might be hiding the fact that he writes poetry or loves kittens.
Seriously, there's absolutely nothing wrong with you (: You just need to remind yourself of that!!

I agree with bitesize... even my boyfriend is sensitive and yes, I love that about him... it's good cause later on it'll help you and right now, you can understand people better because of it. It's fine if you cry, you're human in the end and just holding all those feelings in never helps... you shouldn't fake anything or hide it... be proud of who you are, only then will others be able to be proud of you... I know it's all very idealistic but it's true... and yeah, you should try out acting, that might help... all this sensitivity will help you empathize with the character... it might help if you're doing something productive out of your weakness (as you think) and changing it into a strength
