    I think it was wise to end it with her. But use it as a risky move for her to find out if she wants to be with you. Use the next week with retracting yourself slowly from her and if shes not returned then I would start deleting the past in small tempis. I dont personally believe its a good thing to remove yourself from her in an instant. Dont be bitter on her, give time to reflect on your relationship, let her slip out of your mind in a positive way and not a negative. Nostalgia is not so bad, it can be rather good an refreshing. How would you like your next casual meeting to unfold, do you want it to be negative so she might restart all the hurt again and again each time you meet or do you want it to be times when you thought back on a girl that met something very special to you.

    Sometimes the most logical thing to do is not the wisest.

    If anyone's taking things too personally, it's OP's girlfriend. With all due respect, don't YOU take this personally.

    Anyhow, fecaleagle, I say you deserve better than a girl who can't even decide if she really wants to be with you or not. But do listen to slowriot. He/she has some good advice for you.

    Yeah it makes sense. You need a strong man. That's basically what you said.
    Well I don't know what a strong man is. And dunno why NFP women can't be strong themselves.


    And this was basically what I was hinting at before. If it can't be equal, if you can't accept someone being as "wavy" as you...you already lost the game.
    i totally don't have time to reply properly right now but...no where there did i say anything about all the time...i didn't mean that people are constantly weak and need to support each other...only that i am someone who has lived a bit of life...life throws crazy things at you and sometimes in life one needs someone to hold their hand...emotional support through death in the family...marriage and children will bring all kinds of things your way...at times partners will need to lean on each other. you seem to be missing my point sy....i'll expand later.

    Rebe, I'm curious about the distinction you're making on NF vs NT love (your post sort of implies that NT's have limits to their love, unlike NF's). Would you mind explaining some more?
    I am morbidly fascinated by this thread also - the reasoning-s must be interesting to me too, though I didn't separate it as such ... but ... mm, it's true. Though I always hate it when it is separated into NFs emotional and NTs intellectual.

    NTs and NFs both have limits, of course, but the limits are different (I am tossing this out there). For example this thread. The ENFP's limit is when the INTJ hurt her (assuming now beyond repair and redemption, throwing her into this crazy uncertainty, etc, etc). The INTJ's limit is when she refuse to listen to him when he has done everything (in his mind) to fix it. All logic points that he must cut ties and end it. For the ENFP, all emotions point that she needs space and to re-think the entire relationship. The INTJ is unwilling to give her that emotional flexibility and uncertainty, that space that she needs. The ENFP is unwilling to accept his explanations and apologies, his "constructed package" to fix their relationship. INTJs accept and wants to move forward in the new situation and put the emotions behind but the ENFP is thoroughly wounded that she can't put the emotions behind her.

    I think to put it simply when the facts are presented to the Ts, they accept despite their emotional attachments. And for the Fs, even when the facts are presented, they still believe that it may work or not work because of these emotions that needs time to shift, to heal, to calm down. Again with anything, it's a spectrum, not two boxes of "emotional reasoning" and "intellectual reasoning". For some situations, NFs can shift all the way to the intellectual box and make a decision that is right but is completely against how they feel. Say, I am in love but I have to move abroad to live for three years. Obviously I need to break up with the person and I will do it but it will be incredibly hard and I will probably be very uncertain if it is right. For a T, the facts are there and the decision must be made. If I am emotionally hurt by that said loved person though and the line has been crossed, I will have no problems walking away. Whereas the T might be able to shift through the hurt feelings, find evidence of happy past memories and etc and be able to work through it because logic is still on their side. That means the weaknesses to these two 'preferences' is different but both exist. Logic sometimes collide with "love" and snip it from happening or end it before it really has to end (take chances, believe in someone despite odds, etc). Logic though sometimes is correct and is the best thing to do, despite the emotions. But sometimes emotions can change a situation, sometimes emotions is more important than logic, and make the logic behind the situation incorrect or irrelevant (sometimes).

    There's a lot of flexibility and leeway to what I said above, but that's what I have noticed so far and I have intensely liked two Ts.

    Too bad you didn't respond to my post in this thread. And I would defer deleting images / burning pics etc ... you'll probably regret that.

    This. Sometimes we need a fire under our ass, otherwise we will never make a decision. Maybe having to be faced with the very real prospect of losing you will bring her to a decision. Granted it is unfair to yourself to have to wait so long, but there's so much swimming around in our heads and our hearts that it can sometimes be REALLY, REALLY difficult to make a decision, especially when the wrong one can hurt us, so sometimes decisions arev very difficult to make.

I spent quality time trying to understand you (probably the same way your GF did) and then you shot me down.

    Holy crap PerfectGirl. Your posts have a judgmental and vituperative quality that I would not expect from an INFP. I applaud you for trying to give fecaleagle your best advice. But the way you are sharing this advice is off-putting... at least to me.

    There is hardly ever just ONE right way to do something. The way I read your posts, you feel like you know what's the best course of action. Most everyone else is giving fecaleagle bad advice. And, you're a little frustrated because people aren't instantly agreeing with what you think is the self-evident truth here.

    If I may humbly suggest, you might be focusing so much on the way you think things ought to be, that you are undervaluing the facts of the situation including feedback from the people involved. It seems to me that you feel like you have THE answer and that hardly anyone else on this thread sees the truth. While statistically it's possible, it's very unlikely that PerfectGirl is the only one with the keys to the kingdom.

    I don't want to derail the thread by getting us too off topic, but I did want to gently suggest to PerfectGirl that you make sure you're not rejecting any incoming information that seems to be at odds with your obviously very strong opinions in this matter. Perhaps you can spend some time trying to understand how fecaleagle and others on this thread see the situation. (You can read more on this here.)

    ....................................

    Finally, and to bring this back around to the stated topic of this thread, fecaleagle I would recommend waiting at least a week or two before getting rid of all remnants of your relationship. You can still move forward and compartmentalize these things. I understand your need for closure, but certain things once done cannot be undone. Give it a couple of weeks to see if you get a surprise knock on your door. If you don't by say... July 14th, burn it all in honor of Bastille Day. Vive La Independence!

    Yeah..I mean at this point I still love her more than anything and see a great potential for us to improve ourselves and the relationship, but since she didn't see that I had to let her go. I was willing to change in areas that could hurt her, what more could I do? The more and more I think about it and read some of these posts, the more convinced I am that she is interested in another guy. Things just do not add up. My gut is telling me she'll be dating soon enough, further reaffirming my decision

    Guess that wouldn't hurt! I can hope for this to happen, and when it doesn't I'll feel even better because I did my part and stepped up and she didn't. I'm certain she won't come because her love was and is not deep enough, despite all of her mushy words. In the end, actions speak greater than words, and I am proud to have stayed true to that

    fecaleagle, I'm sorry things didn't turn out the way you wanted, but I think you've grown a lot from this situation. She's just a plot point in your story. And you are a better man to have gone through this period of personal reflection and growth.

    At least you now have skills and knowledge that no one can ever take away from you. And, in your next important relationship, you'll be able to use these to your and her advantage.

    So what if she is? You are making conspiracy theories in your head that will just keep you trapped in your own emotional crap. Be careful not to go into a downwards spiral. Plus as I said, this is a girl you shared some good times with why destroy that because of your own selfish feelings of rejection and pride?
