    Default INTJ's and Online Dating Sites

    Ok so, I'm currently on this dating site, right? Why do I feel the overpowering urge to put a disclaimer at the top of my profile that says 'I'm an INTJ' lol

    Do these sites really work? Especially for an INTJ, where the length of time it takes to get to know someone tends to be very long, but the expectation on the site is to 'find that right person, right now'.

    Are these really a good option for an INTJ?

    Embrace the possibilities.

    Hrm, I actually went to quite a few Dating Sites and they never really worked for me. Mostly because it is "so obvious" there. What I mean is..People go there on Purpose to find Love and that isn't such a good Idea, since true Love mostly happens "unexpected".
    IDK, many People in there are also very dishonest and look for Sex only. I am not a Fan of it.
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    I think they are a good option, only because it gives you a chance to craft your first impression. If most INTJs are anything like me, first impressions are usually disasters.

    I can usually do a first impression... except that no matter how 'obvious' I think I'm being about my interest it just doesn't come across that way. At best I get a level of 'respect' that I don't usually ask for.

    I dunno, its hard to explain. Its as if the only guys who I ever end up dating are the ones who are so OVER confident (and often assinine) that they don't care about my seeming lack of interest and pursue me. The nicer guys who need more reassurance end up dismissing me.

    Embrace the possibilities.

    I think they're a good idea. I used them and managed to get a load of dates with women I probably wouldn't have met via a normal social situation. I think they work particularly well for INTJs, as it gives us time to talk about ourselves and find out about others via email (this is routine for an INTJ, as opposed to social dialogue which may be difficult for us). You can then progress to IMs, phone calls and eventually arrange a date.

    Dating sites have never worked for me. Most of the emails and winks I get are spam (often from different regions).

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    INTJ's need friends who like to play match-maker.

    I enjoy setting people up. It's like a biology experiment. Also, it's sometimes easier to be more confident approaching people if it's for a friend rather than for yourself.
