Iím having difficulties understanding an ENTP friend who has recently pulled away. I must say I liked him very much (romantically, that is) and I thought he liked me. We talked about very intellectual subjects and actually opened up to each other about very serious things including family issues, romantic pursuits, and simply things I know he has not told others. This is something I suspect ENTPs donít do often. However, since our last conversation he has completely pulled away.
In that conversation we were discussing what traits we find attractive in other people and agreed on quite a few. I thought I was picking up on some hints, that maybe he liked me, however some of the hints described me while others completely contradicted them. Is this just an ENTP game? Or am I misinterpreting whats going on? That happens sometimes as we have different perspectives, something I very much appreciate about him.
Since then he has almost completely cut off communication. He doesnít talk to me much anymore, wonít acknowledge me when he sees me, etc. This has been going on for about a week. What is going on?
We went from being close friends to what feels like distant acquaintances. I cannot help, but be hurt and feel as though itís something Iíve done wrong.
And what is your experience with ENTPs? Is this normal or is another message trying to be sent? What should I do to correct the situation, or rather what can I do ?
Also something to consider, he told me he was interested in someone, only interested which he made quite clear, but refused to give me the name of the person he fancied. It seems illogical to be able to open up about family matters, friendships, intellectual subjects, and other past romantic pursuits, but not about someone who he is only some what interested in.
Thoughts and advice would be much appreciated.
