It could be more difficult to coax them into a relationship without scaring them back off into the woods...
    On a regular basis? It may be safe to assume they don't despise you.

    OTOH - "the woods are lovely, dark and deep.."

    I'd hold out for the promises - we don't dispense them lightly.

    Ha! I might be thinking about sex, but the likelihood that I'll realize someone is next to me is slim to none. Then if they start talking?

    I have an issue here. I like an INTP, but my issue is not seducing him, but maintaining his interest. He made his interest in me pretty obvious end last year and at the start of this year, but then when I asked him out, said he didn't want to date at the moment cos he's too busy with schoolwork this year (we're both in our final year of high school, different schools though), "but as soon as exams were over, I would definitely be saying yes." Thing is, I only see him once a week, and I'm worried he'll just forget about it, lose interest. So far, I just call him every now and then asking if he wants to catch up if he's not too busy (both times I've asked him so far he has been busy, though). So that's my way of reminding him I'm still interested and hope he contintues to feel the same way. I guess it's all I can do right now, eh? After all, pushing him is apparently a bad strategy for INTP's. Still, the temptation to try and persuade him through some sort of logical argument to go out with me NOW is very strong... I shall try to resist.

    But yeah, that's an interesting thought. How do you keep them once you've reeled them in?

    From experience, I've learned that if the person is being distant, I would want them all the more than if they were being forthcoming. Most people like stability in a relationship, whilst that bores me stiff after a while. I'm not saying I like insecurity in a relationship as such, but a bit of dynamics and uncertainty. I'm probably being too vague. I think what I'm trying to say is that if the relationship maintains a constant level of security and stability, it gradually fades into the scenery and I'm back to my normal, absent-minded self. If the relationship has occasional spontaneity and dynamics, it's still within my focus.

    I'm not saying that stability would make me want to leave the relationship, but it would cease to be in my interests, in the same way that a new house plant for the hallway eventually blends into the background with everything else in the home. If you're comfortable with your INTP floundering off most of the time and then toddling back again, then that shouldn't be a problem.
    Um, yeah.

    Well. Just from experience, I can relate that all of my entanglements to date have been a result of gentler-than-usual stalking. (The overt stalking causes me to run for the hills.) In each case I was initially a bit scared and put off, though over a long period of ingratiation I grew to appreciate the girl. Then... well, it never ends well. Somehow, every single time it turns out I was just being objectified. She wasn't actually interested in me; just wooed by the mystery and my mother's dominant genes. Mystery gone, off she toddles. Lovely!

    Each time, my filters get a little finer. I had, for instance, an interesting experience about two months ago. For the first time ever, I was immediately struck by a woman. First real conversation we had, in a cafe around the corner. It was about vocabulary; she was studying for a grad school admissions exam, and dropped in "grandiloquent". I mentioned that this happened to be on my words-you-keep-forgetting list, under the words-to-use-more subheader. Directly beneath it, I said, was its sister, "breviloquent". She asked what that meant; by the time I replied, she had already worked it out. As she left, she spun on her heel to report that, going by some studies she had read, it was no bad thing that my brain keeps sublimating so much information.

    I... wasn't immediately sure how to react to this exchange. She was gorgeous, and she dressed like an Edwardian adventuress. I don't normally notice these things! She was also quite brilliant. I think that's what I noticed first. I spent the weekend wondering what came over me. I had become a completely different person, in her presence. My posture, my voice. It was like I had been watching myself from a distance. Eventually I wrote it off as a fluke.

    A few days later, I was in the cafe when she entered. We started to chat about the history of the Western playing card, and... well, it wasn't a fluke. The third time I saw her, I asked for her phone number. Which is about as out-of-character as I can imagine.

    She sent me an email -- and her diction! Oh dear. For half an hour I could hardly breathe from giggling! Her word choice and syntax were astounding.

    A while later, I asked her out to see a movie, to which she readily agreed -- yet she took forever to close up at work. I kept coming up with alternate options, which the hour kept brushing aside. Eventually I suggested ordering a pizza and watching a DVD; she invited me over to her place to watch Hitchhiker's Guide. Afterward, we sat on her kitchen counter for an hour, talking about sociology and the effects of game design on the subconscious. She brought up as many points as I did, and had about as many epiphanies.

    Maybe a week after that, we went out for sushi. She was stressed out about other things in her life, and was a bit prickly. And fair enough. I tried to be cute, and she shrugged. Then she started to irregularly ask me pointed questions, that made me feel like I had to justify myself. At a cafe I pocketed my change after buying a cup of hot chocolate, and had to give a detailed breakdown of my tipping practices. It... I mean, I tip when it's obvious I'm supposed to. I just, I didn't think about it.

    The real killer was in the restaurant, when she seized on my aversion to mushrooms. I don't understand why I'm so often questioned on this, but she did -- and she made the same snap assumption that... well, my last romantic partner made. She with whom I had messily separated only a year ago, and who was prone to snap assumptions.

    I've got sort of a body horror thing with mushrooms. It's complicated, but suffice they just freak me out, and I don't want anything to do with them. She made the immediate conclusion, however, that I would not eat mushrooms because, as she put it, they "grow on poop". And she would not hear otherwise!

    When we would go to other people's houses, and I would turn down mushroom dishes, she would even offer this as an explanation. This would, of course, cause them to argue with me because, as an explanation it makes no sense. And I'd have to tell them that it wasn't true -- which would royally piss off my partner, because I had contradicted her.

    This is the way she was. She was, I believe, an INFJ. She would come to the most bizarre conclusions about my motivation, then would become angry with me because the reasons she devised for me didn't make any sense. And then she would become furious when I would try to explain my actual reasons, however gently I did it. She would tell me to stop yelling at her, even if I was speaking in a calm, offhanded way. It seemed that any contradiction, any conflict, was criticism of her as a person.

    Of course, it's just in retrospect that I notice any of this. While I was in the relationship, from day to day I was half manic, trying to figure out what she needed, and how I could give it to her. Any trouble, I took as a personal failure -- a conclusion with which she heartily agreed! Yet she never helped me much, and she'd grow angry if I asked her outright. By the end, I was kind of a husk. It's taken about a year to start to feel like myself again -- the way I did years ago. My creativity is starting to return, even. I thought it was gone for good.

    So I mentioned to this girl that I don't eat mushrooms. Her response? "Why, because they grow on poop?"

    ...

    I... Well, she allowed me to explain, anyway. But whatever it was that had so compelled me before, that alien enthusiasm -- it was gone, as if it had never been. We were polite the rest of the date; I walked her home, then we parted ways.

    I've avoided her since then. I understand all the factors in play; I know how complicated moods can be, and I know she wasn't at her best. I don't have anything against the girl. I just... have no motivation to talk to her. And I've plenty of more pressing things to think about.

    So oh well. We'll see if I can finish these articles before the end of the month.

    EDIT: Good lord, that turned out long.

    That's very interesting. But yeah, I think that's normal, for everything in life really. New things are always more exciting than old things. The novelty wears off.

    When you talk about the relationship getting boring if there's too much stability and security, do you mean 'stablility', or do you mean 'routine'? If the relationship was stable in that it was commited and loyal, but didn't fall into a routine, daily scheduled kind of pattern, instead staying spontaneous, would it still have appeal? Is it the commitment of being in a stable relationship or how routine the relationship is that would bore you?

    Haha, that's okay. If someone's really interested in INTP's (like people reading this thread would be.. ) they won't mind reading your tale, I'm sure. Just could you filter from the whole experience in general some advice for us all?
