    Default Romance question for TP women

    (I'm placing the thread here in the NT Rationale, but STPs are invited to respond as well.)

    TP women, when you become interested in a man, how do you behave toward him? We're talking about a man who is single.

    I prefer anecdotal accounts to theorizing.

    Edit: Make that preferably anecdotal accounts from when you were 20 years old, if that makes a difference.

    I pay direct attention to him, singling him out. Since I am an E, I can be somewhat scattered and everyone thinks I am flirting with them, but when I like a man, he knows. Joking, banter, wit, music and laughter become more focused on him. I am extremely impatient/restless so after a few days of direct attention and humor, he usually gets asked something along the lines of "I like you, so what's up?" Direct and to the point. When I like a man, I can get a little jittery (excitement overload with no output) and make even more sensory mistakes than usual. For example, I went out for tea with a guy that I like and I completely missed my mouth (twice) and almost knocked over the kettle (twice). I think I banged my hip when I stood up. I am so focused on the mental connection that I often forget about the physical plane. It's almost slapstick funny.

    ... I failed to provide you contrarians with something to oppose, didn't I?

    To be more specific, could you conceivably be interested in a man and yet not bother to read what corresponds to his visitor messages on a board like this (edit: I mean, the corresponding feature at another online community)? I'm thinking no, but maybe I'm just projecting since I'm a stalker an INTJ. Edit the next day: Assume you have just left a visitor message yourself. Do you glance down at the other messages and click on 'View Conversation' or not?

    Edit: Oops, I see jenocyde didn't need more coaxing at least.

    (No, the above post didn't take me 7 minutes ; I got distracted by a text.)

    Oh. I don't even think to spy on a person, to be honest. It never even occurs to me. Maybe my ego is so huge too big or I have too many things going on, I don't know. It doesn't even cross my mind to look. I figure that if he wants me to know something, he'll tell me. But when we start dating, it's a completely different story. I want to know everything, not out of jealousy, but out of the same curiosity that I had in my first chemistry class. I can't explain it but I literally need to absorb as much information as I can. I still don't spy, though - but I will hound him to death with question after question. Sexy, right? :rolli:


    (and lol about the 7 minutes. too cute!!)

    Yeah, epp, we definitely sound similar on every single post!

    Economica - to answer your question, I don't belong to any other forums, so I really don't know my online etiquette. I have no basis of comparison. But I don't facebook stalk or google them or anything... and I certainly don't read people's walls here, aside from just casually noticing things when I post.

    Very much relate to the bolded. I don't meet that many that make me act that way, though. The other cues will be way more subtle, though I will probably touch him more than I would a friend.
