    It drives me insane when my boyfriend tells me that he "was going to" do something sweet/romantic. Like he told me today that he was going to have showed up at my workplace with flowers because I was supposed to be working late but I ended up getting out early. Why not just keep that to himself and surprise me a different day, and tell me about it later? Why tell me now and make me feel sad about what I missed out on and make me wonder why it seems like he tells me more of these "was going to" stories than doing actual romantic things? He's so sweet and good about the day-to-day practical stuff but I hate essentially being walked through envisioning the ideal while not getting to live it. It makes me angry and disappointed. I've tried to explain this to him before and ask him to stop telling me but he doesn't seem to get it.
    I totally feel ya on this. Sometimes, it isn't just the thought that counts.

    No offense intended to the INFPs on TC but man, they're driving me nuts on another site. What part of I don't give a fuck about your ooey-gooey shit, don't you understand?

    I don't know, but your bitterness is delicious. I want to make more of it.

    Down, INFPs, down!

    No seriously though, why the fuck would INFPs give me the unsolicited advice to act more like [insert all INFP traits] in my relationship? Do I look like an INFuckingP? If not, why would I act like one?

    I dunno.

    Describe the sloppy wet blowjob you would have given him if he had just followed through.

I did feel horrible and ungrateful but it was kinda like he was dangling this love-carrot in front of me that I'd rather not have known about!)


    Ladies, these are two of the most ridiculous rants I've ever heard.

    Coming from this INTJ, who has been known to pull a romantic thing or two in the past, two things you might want to consider are that: 1) sometimes the thought really should count, and your man simply wanted you to know that he was thinking about you, and clearly in a very admiring, loving, fond way, and wanted to do this for you, but reality got in the way; and 2) maybe he's a little insecure that, if he does it, you won't like it, or will think it's totally cheesy, or something, so he mentioned it to see how you would react. A negative reaction here might not be the best of things.
