9 Obvious Signs He’s The Empath You’ve Been Waiting For All This Time

I want to make sure that you don’t miss these obvious signs that he’s the empath you’ve been waiting for all this time. So today, we’ll talk about that and I hope you’re ready.

When you read the word empath, what’s the first definition that comes to your mind? Are you thinking about the person who can easily walk in your shoes, or do you think of someone who carefully listens to what you have to say?

Are we talking about a human lie detector or someone who can easily sense the pain of others and use every single opportunity to help? Well, yes. Empaths are all this and much more. When it comes to love, it’s incredibly intense for them.

They’ll openly talk about their emotions, they require honesty and respect, and their gut feeling and instinct are everything to them. Communication is incredibly important to them, and they may come off as picky daters since they would rather wait until they find their perfect someone.

Empaths need their alone time because they are prone to burnout and they can easily get overwhelmed with emotions. So yes, they’ll need some time to recharge. Each one of them is special in their own way, and if you fall in love with one, don’t let him go. But, how can you know he’s one of these unique people?

What does it mean when someone is an active listener? That’s an easy one; he’s going to listen in order to understand you, not simply to reply to your question. You’ll be heard, maybe even for the first time in your life and you’ll feel valued. He’s not going to judge you and he’ll offer you the best advice possible.

He’ll be really interested in how your day went and you’ll open up to him so easily that you won’t even realize how much he actually knows about you. He’s going to celebrate your small wins as well as your success and he’ll be your shoulder to cry on if you need to.

Make sure you do the same for him as well. Being an empath means you’re putting the needs of others before your own, so be someone who checks up on him and shows him you care and appreciate everything he does for you.

2. He’s protective

You’ll feel safe every time he’s around because he’ll make sure you’re protected. This varies from simply putting his hand over your shoulder while you’re walking past a weird guy, to the let’s-change-sides-so-you’re-not-close-to-the-street type of protection.

He’s going to step up for you whenever he feels like he needs to, but he’ll also make sure you show the world that you’re independent. When a tricky situation appears, he’ll observe and absorb what’s happening and he’ll definitely think before he does something.

He’ll recognize when you’re vulnerable, and he’ll be there to protect you. His hug will be your safe place and you’ll calm down while listening to his heartbeat.

3. He openly talks about his feelings with you

Sometimes he may struggle with all the emotions he gathered down the road, so be a good listener. He’ll be honest with you and tell you about everything that’s bothering him and in those moments, he’ll only need your support to be who he really is.

However, this can be really exhausting for them and they may need some me time. They can feel your pain and sorrow, sometimes even stronger than you. For some people, this may be overwhelming and they simply have to recharge, so don’t hesitate to give him some space when he needs it.

6. He genuinely cares about you
