    Can anyone relate? And does anyone have coping strategies?

    I'm hypersensitive to body language, voice intonations and what's being said/done/going on around me. This can be problematic. Today I decided my girlfriend looked stressed (becauseshe is and admits it, she has an open day)-but I'm stressing her out too more than anything

    I should elaborate: I'm not saying I think I am the only factor in their life that could stress them out. That would be a bit narcissistic of me, they have their own lives with their own problems.
    I'm saying I think they perceive me as a stress-inducer when in their presence, either the sole one or an additional one to their own personal stressors

    Number 7

    Your weaknesses
    Maybe you cry during insurance commercials, or maybe you aren't really as self-confident as you make yourself out to be in public. These frailties don't matter — as long as she never finds out about them. If she does, she'll start making all sorts of "cute" jokes at your expense. Or the revelation that her man isn't quite the man that she thought he was will put her off of you entirely. Be strong and keep your weaknesses undercover.
