    I have to suspect you'll spend a majority of it growing old and grey with or without the challenge.

    What looks more universal, or at least generalized, to you?

    4) Has majorly intense moments with me and then withdraws according to how extreme the intensity was - lol - I am beginning to think it's directly proportional.
    5) Is EXTREMELY articulate, until she tries to talk about her feelings for me and then turns into a bumbling, muttering mess - usually followed by fleeing the scene.

    And then I end up thinking over it on the way home and realizing, hey, she thinks I'm mad at her. Whoops. And then I have to email her/him.
    If I don't do that I just don't talk in front of the person.
    Yes, if I like someone I will tend to jab at them a lot. Sometimes I may go too far and I get shut out. Oh well. Next victim.

    Sort of a bear cub thing.

    I tend to do the same thing, verbally. Though I also just play with them, deconstructing who they are. That goes from refusing to call them by their proper names (in favor of my own variations thereupon) to mapping out their behavior in advance to making unflattering generalizations out of their flaws.

    I'm not sure why I do any of this. I guess it's like I'm psychologically fluffing a pillow.

    She probably does have feelings. Don't let her be consumed by these, for that would really hurt her permanently.

    Fluffing a pillow?

    What you are doing is attempting to dominate them. Because you have noticed they have some influence over you and you are so averse to being controlled by others that you are desperately trying to gain the upper hand. Men in particular, do this I've noticed.

    Dominate? I'm not so sure about that. Perhaps exert some control over my half of things. That's sensible enough. I'm certainly not interested in imposing anything on her, though. And it is meant to be affectionate.

    Mostly it amuses me. Self-possession through humor.

    I think the real problem is that I'm insecure about what I'm feeling, which leads me to a certain ironic detachment. I mildly jab at the object of my insecurity, using the tools more comfortable to me -- the thinking and the intuition -- to probe out the nature of the threat. See what response I get. Mine for information, so I can figure out what to make of the situation.

    There may be some other aspect as well. A certain element of showing off. Here, I'm interested enough to think about you. Here's an origami swan made out of your flaws. I notice them, and that's fine. They don't bother me; they entertain me. You're human, and that's cool.

    I don't know. There's a bunch going on here, it looks like.
