    I get extremely uncomfortable expressing "love". I passionately hate the fluffy feeling.
    It feels like you're being suffocated. I need to laugh a little, act crazy, or be with myself after that (Which is one of the few times I do want to be with myself).

    Maybe I am a mistyped SP. :o
    Exactly. It just feels so unnatural and uncomfortable to me.

    As stated, I'm very romantic ... but one thing that does make me bristle is too much nostalgia. I do not want to repeatedly revisit an idealized event that happened five years ago. It's over, usually falsified, and means little to me.


    As long as we're in the here and future, however, bring it on!

    I'd say yes. When I'm serious about the relationship I'm very thoughtful and affectionate ..

    For me, truly romantic gestures include an element of humor. They acknowledge the idea of grand romantic gestures and mock them, but gently ... in a way that acknowledges their worth.


    It's not romantic unless it's clever.
    Agreed. I've gone out with some traditionally romantic guys (flowers, candies, shiny gifts, etc) and although it's not my favorite display of appreciation, I understand their need to do it that way and accept. I mean after all, who doesn't like sweet stuff and sparkly things?

    yeah, I hate that stuff too. that's why I either avoided doing it at all and went for something that was wild and lively - I mean, why would I be out with someone at all anyway, if they weren't the sorta person who could enjoy (and survive) a walk on the wild side? or else if I did the clich stuff I'd always try and just put some touches to it that made it "not your average meal at a restaurant" - something different that made it memorable.

    I mean, take one common or garden restaurant, a standard table setting, the expected choices and prices on the menu and everything's predictable and scripted. Add one average ENTP and suddenly there are unknowns... it can be fun to keep them on the edge of embarrassment permanently, yet never quite crossing that line - keep them guessing as to whether you're going to do something outrageous, which means you have to actually do something outrageous now and again and get away with it. I find with less naturally adventurous types they tell you off for it in that way where the mouth is saying "stop it" but the eyes and tone of voice are saying "don't stop it!" and you know they're secretly thrilled.

    But I grew up on medieval literature - how could I not be romantic? It raised me and I grew up to live it - all that open-handed ring-giving, largesse, noblesse, gentilesse etc has made me a noble knight, loved by all at court, yet also a scarred and terminally poor knight, whom the damsels' fathers never approve of, just like the ones in the books

    This really says it all, without directly saying it. How ENTP!

    Anyway, yeah, I believe the point of her ellipses here is that it's very rare for us to care enough about someone to be serious about the relationship.

    If you absolutely blow us away with how amazing you are, then we'll rise to the challenge and top it.

    If you're not really that interesting, we're not trying. (But we do recognize and sometimes imitate certain "romantic" tactics that we notice are successful, when it benefits us.)
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    So you do like being romantic, but only a lucky few are recipients of it?

    i guess it's like those cereal box sweepstakes: many will enter, few will win.
