More than anything else, you have to love your overthinking partner with all your heart. You have to let your passion pour forth to let your partner know that love really shouldn’t be as complicated as they like to think.

If you just so happen to be in a relationship with someone who tends to be an over thinker, then you have to know that you are choosing to love someone who has a mind that tends to betray them. This person is someone who just can’t seem to shake the habit from his or her mind. They really can’t control the fact that their brain tends to work double-time; sometimes, even at a pace that people rarely get to match even through sheer concentration. While you’re thinking of a single word, these people are thinking of paragraphs and paragraphs of complicated prose. The immensity at which their intellect operates is at a point that is borderline unhealthy and self-destructive.

When you’re dating an over thinker, you must be aware early on that you are going to be on the receiving end of a lot of questions. You will be forced to bear the interactions with someone who has an inquisitive mind. The people who overthink are just naturally curious and they can’t help but give in to their interrogative natures. They like to take analytical and methodical approaches to how they live their life, and so questions are always going to play prominent roles in your conversations. They like to play out fantastical hypothetical scenarios in their heads, and sometimes, they can get lost in it. It’s your job to relieve them of their intellectual stress and bring them back down to earth.

If you happen to be in love with an over thinker, you have to have loads of confidence and trust that your relationship is going to pull through. You can never have doubts about the dynamics of your relationship, and you have to be smart enough to know that the hard times will come; however, you will be able to deal with them without much trouble. If you’re in a relationship with an over thinker, then you have to be ready to be completely open. You can’t afford to shut an over thinker out of your life. You can’t be willing to keep secrets and be discreet in your ways. You will torment the over thinker at wit’s end. You have to be willing to open yourself up to scrutiny, criticism, and judgement; and at the same time, you have to be confident that the over thinker will never betray you for letting yourself be vulnerable like that.

Since you are in a relationship with a person who is always thinking, your mind has to always be at work as well. You can’t afford to be left behind in the dust. You must make a constant effort to be one jump ahead. If not, you may be caught off-guard, and it can be difficult to deal with the repercussions of such a situation. You also have to let your actions speak louder than your words. You can put an over thinker at ease by living out your feelings via meaningful gestures and actions. You can’t just be complacent and settle for words of reassurance. Their overworking brain will still make for them to question whatever it is you are saying.- Continue reading on the next page
