    I think this relates to how I feel I have grown through relationships... I am nearing 'relationship-polymath' by now, lol. I don't want to lose the strengths I've developed either, that's why I don't really want to be too dependent on my partner I guess. I don't care if they're dependent on me though.

    yeah...that's really interesting. i've noticed that as well. i think it's just important to be with someone that makes you feel like the best version of yourself and that's hard to do if you're forced to behave in a way that doesn't feel natural.

    I definitely try to be the best version of myself regardless of my partner, but yes it's nice if they don't take away from that! I really would try not to do something completely unnatural though... I can't really think of a situation where I would feel forced to be unnatural (eeps, I think I would completely rebel). I guess about the only thing I seem to find hard to bridge is a pronounced S/N divide in a relationship. I don't mind trying something out for a while though to see if I can develop a facility for it.

    ^^ oh i wasn't referring to you...it sounds like you do feel natural being a bit more extroverted...i was thinking about how i feel with someone who is a lot more e then i am and i feel like my place is already filled and don't behave like the best version of myself...if that makes sense.

    One is attracted to the other because he doesn't possess a certain quality (that he'd like to have) the other one possesses-probably this is the philosophy behind that phrase.
    One should not aim at being possible to understand, but at being impossible to misunderstand. - Quintilian

    ^Yeah, aww that's what I thought upon reflection, so I edited to include a 'frownie' for you.

    Extroverts bore me, generally. Opposites do not attract this introvert.
    In friends it's fine, but for relationships, no.
