    I would just advise against using the words "forever" and "long-term" around him, and you'll have a shot.

    While that all may be true for most INTPs, the problem is that he knows how she feels already, and is nonplussed.

    A friend who is dating an INTJ played long game per advice of other INTJs. Is it different with INTPs then?

    This guy has already shown his colours when she showed her hand. He's not into desperation/neediness.
    Most of us aren't into being "dragged" anywhere.

    It's different for me, and I'm an INTP. So...it might be just me, or it may be an INTP thing. Not really sure. I'm usually very self absorbed in my own interests to waste time chasing after a girl who can't make up her mind/doesn't show me she knows what she wants.

    That's fine, neither am I. Coming to get me shows me confidence in what you want. Not neediness or desperation. If he refuses this tactic than I can genuinely say with certainty he is not interested, although I'd take that position now with 95% certainty with what I've heard so far. But she seems persistent, so I'm offering what would work for me.

    Then why is he writing again. I started moving on and now he is talking to me again. My experience with guys is you never hear from them again. I'm afraid to confront him for fear he will run back to his cave. He is extremely shy. He's so cute! Plus I never used those words "forever" or even the "L" word..god forbid.

    I would bet the cash that he's worried he was insensitive previously, and is being a nice guy, or trying to. INTPs are rather awful at being nice.

    I'd take that bet.

    You think he is just feeling guilty? Not really interested in picking up where we started? I'd rather not hear from him. :steam:
