    Default ENFPs in love? what's it like?

    I actually feel love for many people. I make connections ("alliances" I once heard it called it a SF book) with many folks around me and I love them. Once they commit to the mission, or seem to fall for the flutterby, they become part of my bizarre cosmic whole and I take care of them and they are mine.

    However I have never tried the "falling in love" thing. I was with an ISTP. Emotions are silly.

    For an ENFP what is it like to walk along that cliff and then jump off? How do you ever recover when things end?

    I dont think I will try myself as I have the Fi packaged very nicely on a shelf, however I would like to have a better understanding of how this plays out.

    yes, and you should never hold yourself back from falling in love because then you become a prime target for the Love Bug. and when it bites you, it will bite you EXTRA HARD just to teach you a lesson.

    especially for enfps - don't fight or try to shield your fi from the world - it just gets you in the end.

    One of my ENFP friends claim that she can never fall out of love with someone even if the other person has long moved on in the relationship... So I imagine recovery for an ENFP is... difficult.

    I use it too.


    I love people - all kinds of people - but falling in love with someone is very different to me. And yes, I love my ex's even when it ends.

    I live in the here and now, it hard for me to imagine "the end" in a logical way...

    I'd rather cherish every second of it than worry about where it will go.

    I find that I am usually the one to end a relationship. I am still friendly with most of my exes. We were just going different places and our breakups were usually amicable.

    I'm currently in a committed relationship with an INXP. We can really talk about anything.

    what kind of approach does it feel like for an enfp to be in love love. they are spread out so wide, they find such broad connections moving in so many directions, how do they ever prioritize one?

    i've always been the one to end relationships too and it's hard for me...but i imagine it might be much harder if it were the other way around...or maybe not...then i wouldn't have to worry about hurting them...actually that might be easier.

    i can't imagine it feels any different than it does for anyone else...can it?

    Love is a built-in defense mechanism which helps coping with there being no greener pastures within sight.
