    I love being alone - no muss, no fuss. So to let someone in, that person has to be damn near perfect for me. No room for any doubts at all. I don't see the point of a partnership unless it's a true partnership in every sense of the world. I also believe that to be realistic, rather than idealistic. There are no false hopes and dreams, just pure unadulterated planning and compatibility.

    I am not a big fan of feelings. They disrupt me. Sometimes they hurt when there is no apparent reason, (these are the worst, especially on my Ti). Wonder if Fs feel similar about thinking?
    Relationships often bring out these feelings more. Sex is something much more pleasurable than feelings…I think sex would be better if this was not where babies came from and something distinct in itself.

    There does seem to be a perfectionist thing going on... I wonder how many of us actually creat criteria so strict we have no real chance of finding a fit... Humans after all are all falwed or they would be really dull...

    It hurts when I realize how could I make such a stupid mistake. I cringe at myself LOL.
    Dishonest ISFPs make me sad.

    I think it's less of creating impossible criteria and more of weighing how much you are willing to put up with, especially if you are absolutely fine with the way your life is to begin with. I see some people sacrifice so much of themselves to be in a relationship, due to a desperate fear of being alone. I have no such fear, so I don't feel the need to make compromises that I am not comfortable with. It's only when the benefits outweigh the annoyances do I even consider it. And even still, the annoyances have to minor...

    I understand how you feel. I am only curious that this is coming from an E and not an I.

    Ok, sometimes I feel the same way about feelings too. Its just more frustrating to me when I don't see the cause and effect. The "mistake" as it was, that causes the feelings, especially painful ones. Luckily it doesn't happen too often but even once is enough.

    Being E has nothing to do with it. Especially when the E in question is Intuition, which is still an introverted or solitary process. Most ENTPs, and to a lesser degree ENFPs, that I know are quite content to be loners. I don't like my thought process to be interrupted and I need a lot of solitude to process things.

    ENTPs are often called one of the most introverted extroverts. INTPs are often called one of the most introverted introverts. We both have Ne and Ti as our top two functions, and both functions are pretty reclusive.
