Pros of two empaths dating

Romantic relationships with two empathic partners are often passionate, satisfying, and have a profound heart connection. You really get each other and most likely won't run into any of the usual boyfriend problems.

Cons of two empaths dating

Since being an empath means you tend to put others first, you may encounter boundary issues with an empathic partner. You might require a lot of support or your partner could be needy. This can cause you to give too much, or expect too much from a mate.

Empaths are easily broken-hearted, and then end up carrying around a lot of baggage. Sometimes being overly emotional, which happens to highly sensitive people, will cause anxiety.


At times, too much tapping into your beau’s feelings can teeter on being co-dependent, unfortunately not reflecting your best side.

As Judith Orloff, M.D., says, "Though it is often challenging for two empaths to be in love, over the long term it can be successful when the mutual respect and communication is there.”

How can an empath couple set boundaries?

Having strong boundaries will ensure you maintain your own space and set limits on how much you give and what is expected of you.

The best way to handle this is to spend time analyzing where you overgive and then set an intention to avoid this. Clarity is essential for having healthy boundaries.


You can also have a healthy discussion with your partner. Don't do this during a fight, but afterwards, when things settle down and are calm again.

Then talk through who gave too much, who was too demanding, and how to prevent overstepping these important boundaries in the future.

It's a blessing when two empaths fall in love.


If you've been longing to find and fall in love with another empath, now you know loads of reasons why it's actually a good idea!

You'll enjoy an amazing heart connection, spend time with someone who understands you at a deep level, and share your life with a supportive, loving partner.
