    Fe.

    Words, actions, doesn't really matter as long as I know they're being sincere and they're not being smothering or obnoxious. For some odd reason, if it's physical contract, I'd like to be the one to initiate (like, hugging or holding hands. Jeez guys) If someone tells me they like something about me or compliment me somehow, I will reply back to them and take it well. At times I can feel like a pain if people are running around treating me like their queen, so actions only go so far with me.

    A tad of F-e. A tad of F-i. Love expressed through song is special. Preferably with acoustic guitar.

    There was some topic on love languages somewhere, which includes this verbal/action thing and since many people openly display their type, you can get some answers from there

    Fe > Fi

    Actions will always, always mean more than words. Especially in a situation where there's actions and words that contradict each other.
    I evaluate a person's intentions by their actions and hold words at face value until proven. Words take on more value once I've known someone long enough to kind of pick up on the undertones of what they say.

    HOWEVER sometimes it's just difficult or impractical to express your care for someone in actions all the time. I am very withdrawn and have trouble being affectionate but I do appreciate it when someone I trust or have known for a long time takes the time to say something nice to me. In fact, I would consider the words to be the action in that case. The action of acknowledging that I matter to them.

    I don't trust my emotions and having the verbal confirmation takes a lot of anxiety away from trying to guess and, well, missing lots and lots of opportunities.

    I'm supposed to have Fe as a third function. And I'm not the best to express my deepest feelings unless I write them of unless I make them artistic in a way or another. In case of a too emotional situation I can become stressed and become out of touch with my feelings and rather critical. The person in front of me has to be careful we really understand each other 1st. I need some distance to accept my feelings. "My man" who is ENTJ uses Fi as a fourth function.

    When we are having a verbal fight (because both of us don't focus too much on feeling but crave affirmation and are very individualistic) we know each other limits, and we respect them. This is a proof we care for each other. We both enjoys long and deep conversations and debating ideas, and after a while, feelings that we have put aside, as we speak, become natural and come out (not too strong but we know we are sharing some). Action (going out or making love) is another part of the picture, making the relationship more intimate...

    For sure, I can't date somebody who is bad at communication and who is not a friend of Philosophy and... teasing.
    It makes the relation much more intense and interesting.
    Action without words would be almost frightening.

    I think the best way I show my feelings is by a simple touch or, a good tease, and a very sincere open smile.
    If the person shows feelings the same way, with a mix of tenderness, positive body language and spontaneous attitude, we are on the good way...
