    I'm currently single. I'm picky as hell. I refuse to be in any sort of relationship (or commitment in general) that I don't feel 100% about.

    I feel like with most people I meet, I can see exactly how the relationship will go. I also have a problem with picking out flaws and using them as deal breakers. I, myself, am also really good at screwing things up - once I feel I've "figured" someone out, I'll usually move onto something or someone else that is a mystery.
    In my defense, I am a terrible person.

    Bowie, it sounds as though you're pre-emptively failing at all your potential relationships.

    Guess the mbti entp type was the best scapegoat to ever come along to reconcile ones one desire for freedom.

    I am just hoping this equation plays out in the end

    I don't think that's true.

    I can relate to that. I think that's an expectation thing. I often feel a sense of doom when things are going well. I just try to ride the feeling out since I know I cycle through various moods.

    My brain needs input. In the absence of input I envision scenarios. I'm better at envisioning negative scenarios than positive scenarios sometimes. A lot of the time. But, like I said. It's about expectations. Expect good things and you can build good things.

Maybe its just an immature ExxP thing.
    I think this is more a failure to be present. Being present is appreciating what you have. Not being present is not seeing what you have and envisioning possibilities. The bad thing about possibilities is that you can make them into whatever you want.

    On another note this has been something that's been kinda bugging me for a while, am I the only ENTP who would die in a relationship with an INFJ? Because a classmate of mine is an INFJ and my mom is one too and while we can live civilly with one another I couldn't see myself with anyone like them at all. Why is it that MBTI encourages T's to go with F's and E's with I's? I could see myself with an introvert just not an introvert AND a feeler. I'd say that for a relationship to work the people would have to understand each other and I have yet to understand an NF.

    (way offtopic but whatever)
    I like INFJ's. They seem to be consistent and caring, for the most part.

    When will ever be the right time?

    There is no right time.
    There is no perfect time. I think ENTP's can also be prone to perfectionism.

    I can see people seeing me as unreliable and I suppose I am in some ways. I just count on making up for it somehow when I circle back.

    I can only be single, or be in some sort of vacationship / open relationship thing. I basically go into a relationship with the expectation that it will end at some point. One of us might go to another country for a super long time, one of us might die, who knows. Life is way too chaotic, and I never know what I'm going to do. I can't be sexually monogamous, but I don't expect my partner to be either.
