    Yeah, maybe I need to figure out how to relax, but ironically I can't do that with another person.

    ESTJ? Dunno, have only had weird bad experiences... But one of my best friends is of that persuasion and she kinda rocks... I just don't think they would like someone like me romantically, though - I'm kinda stubborn when it comes down to it. I know my own shortcomings...

    i can relate. i've felt/intuited this a time or two. Allthough i've never noticed hints of my shortcomings, even though i know they were there. But that could be how N and S work. Neither see the hints from the other. i'd venture to say that S doesn't notice the hints to a higher degree, which leaves us with the final option. You know what that is... truthful articulation
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    If it's any consolation, a good, long lasting match for anyone is hard to come by - especially so for an N. Half the marriages end in divorce and there non-love related reasons why the people in the other half stay married.

    Also, stay away from ESTJs. I'm sure they make great mates, but not for ENTPs.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    I'm confused too Jen. I want an amazing relationship and nothing less, maybe I just like looking for it and never finding it, I don't know. I know there's somebody that will fit me well. I don't want to be in an old stale life or relationship.

    I'm a huge and amazing sail going to waste without the wind filling me full of life. Someplace out there is a boat missing a sail but wanting adventure and excitement. Together maybe will will offer a wonderful balance.

    I often doubt anybody will fit into my life but I'm very adaptable so who knows. I don't want to be with somebody stuck to a 9-5 so there's no chance of adventure.

    Fuck, I don't know, I'm confused about what I should do and even I'm starting to conclude I will just stay single. I am starting to wonder if the ENTP/ENTP or maybe ENFP match is a good thing provided both are mature and seeking a quality relationship.

    I don't know Babe but at least we have each other, even if we get married and go our own ways half the year.

    I sometimes wonder if monogamy really has any inherent value for us. I know that it does for a lot of people, that they need that, but I just don't know if we're biologically cut out for it. I see so many people constantly distraught over relationship problems and I wonder if two human personalities can be expected to remain close enough for intimate exclusivity for life. Life is a long fucking time!

    So many more people to explore, why do I need to commit my entire life to one?

    Also, isn't it statistically probable that even if you find "the one", there are probably numerous even better matches for you out there? Consider the miniscule fraction of people in the world that you'll actually encounter in your lifetime, and it doesn't seem too likely that your "one true love" exists among them.

    What if thought you'd found the one and then ended up meeting someone even better? How can you know there isn't anything better out there? How can you be content not looking for it?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I love manhunt, but in the woods at night.
    The last thing I want to feel is stuck or obligated.

    I'm a pretty good team player at game time, but I don't always want it to be game time. I work best with a partner (not necessarily romantic...) and I like to be a part of a team. Just not always.

    That's so true and it really sucks. I have some wonderful Ss in my life and this letter should not be coming between us...

    It is a good consolation, thanks. But I truly want everyone to be happy, not just me or the few people in good relationships.

    I don't even know if I want an amazing relationship, I honestly like my life the way it is. I'm just concerned about not growing as a person. But what is growth, really? Who is to say that doing this sort of thing makes you "grow"? Sometimes, I think that I'm the evolved one for not needing dependency... I don't know.

    Yes, we have each other.

    I don't believe in monogamy either, but I believe in honoring commitments. So if a man I love demands monogamy, I will most likely do it and pray that I don't harbor resentments... but I guess I don't have to worry about that now anyway.

    Anything is possible. The question is, do you want it to be possible? What would the most ideal long-term relationship for you be like? Let loose and don't worry about how realistic it is.

    I don't know if I want it to be possible. Are you in a relationship?
