As for constant super-charged emotional currency, I have met a few guys with whom I have felt passion/romance/intrigue every.single.minute of our interaction. Never got a chance to pursue anything further due to factors like distance and just plain wrong timing, but they remain good friends and I occasionally go for the weekend visit. It's great for a few days, but I do suspect that over a longer period it would be quite taxing.

I'm not sure if I've ever found somebody with whom I can communicate enough to feel fully understood. Maybe I need to find another INFJ? But they are oh-so-rare. Especially when you work in science.
Don't over think this. If you live your life you will find what you need.
