Relationships can be challenging for Empaths because it is important for us to have an adequate amount of time to ourselves and while some Empaths choose to remain single, there are benefits in being with the right kind of person in a loving relationship. The difference between a loving relationship and that of family and friends is the amount of time we spend with them. Being alone is helpful to Empaths as it is a good time for us to recharge and balance ourselves. What we need in our relationships is someone who will understand, support and love us unconditionally. Getting a hug each day is very important for us as well, it helps us to feel safer.
