    One of the reasons I love you guys... I don't have to be afraid of offending you or anything. That's a huge thing to me. I don't have to pad down my words to get through to you.

    EDIT: Also forgot to mention I don't have to be afraid of much bulls@#t on you guy's side.

    Yes absolutely we can do this. We have a tendency to view our relationships as a done deal once we are committed. We forget that sometimes we have to nourish the relationship etc... Ideally we would spend the majority of our time on career, business or projects. Just knowing how we feel about the person is often enough for us to consider the relationship strong and therefore not high on our list of priorities of things that need attention. It really takes a conscious effort on our part to be aware that others may need more "together" time than we do.

    It doesn't sound like she's IN a relationship with this guy, though...?

    If I were this guy, and I was interested in her, I wouldn't deal with it/show it by avoiding her. That's just me.

    I'd say try to read the body language when you run into him. If he cares about you, just not in that way, he might not be comfy with expressing outright rejection. He could be confused... or trying to get a no-strings-attatched deal out of the whole thing, if he's stressed.

    Of course more info is helpful,sorry.

    We just started dating, but then his job got really stressful. He was promoted and then he more or less disappeared. I get limited to no phone calls and no time together.

    What Frank said makes the most sense about the situation. I am just unsure of it because the behavior seems strange to me.

    Thanks guys!!!!

    (f) ENTJs do this as well. When I wrote my master's thesis, my bf (INTP) of nine months at that time, was practically ready to leave me. Aside from the distractedness and being stressed out of my mind, and constantly thinking about my thesis, apparently, I was a real bitch too. However, this was NOT brought to my attention until he actually spelled it out for me - 12 weeks later.

    So hang in there, if you really like him. To an ENTJ, our work is important to us and sometimes we get lost in it, without noticing or even thinking there is something wrong with that. We just kind of expect others to understand. Especially our significant others.

    This should however, not be interpreted as lack of interest in you. If you're still unsure, ask him! He'll give you a straight answer to your question (given that it is a straight enought question) If he likes you, the "love" is still there, just that the time and brain capacity isn't...

    So very true.
