A lot of males I know have been taught to suck it up and get on with it. Like as in-“Be a man”

A lot of sensitive men I know struggled with that whole concept, so I notice they isolate from other males, tend to prefer connecting with females.

i gave up on other males early on because I figured all I was gonna get was fights. And I desperately wanted no part of it. But later I couldn't avoid them and then I found out they weren't going to attack me so now I am able to tolerate the situation....

Still easier to deal with females though, I don't really resonate with most of the things I see males doing.

This is something that feels familiar to me. Like, I realised pretty fast, that when I love someone, I am the one who love and I don't have to "be with" this person, they are just activating something inside of me, The Love and it's a bit hmmm ... frustrating or how to say it properly... it's like lovely hell, that I keep catching myself on the fact that I'm possesive and keep thinking that I need them to love them and I don't have to be possesive, as Love is much stronger and I keep chosing Love over this desire to "have" someone. The same what is in my quotation of Rumi.
But ..... Last weeks are terribly lonely to me, or even maybe months rather. I feel socially deprivated but I think that it shows me where my jealousy need my attention.

Sadly I still don't understand many things in English and I feel that I'm missing many things when reading you.
