    This thread is amusing.
    "A spill at the plant increased the phosphates in the lake and produced a scum of algae so thick that the swamp smell filled the air, infiltrating the genteel mansions. Debutantes cried over the misfortune of coming out in a season everyone would remember for its bad smell."

    It's not the expression. It's what happens afterward when the INFP drops you like a rotten potato that we're afraid of.
    Personally, *I* think I'm hysterically funny.

    If you check NF threads, INFPs (and most NFs) read affection through words, physical touch, and quality time. Most don't read acts of service and gifts as displays of love. Sure, they are nice, but your sentiment might be flying over their head. Any feeling of being "bought" can be a turn-off also.

    Edit: Oh, and I'm not criticizing your pie baking. That's still very sweet
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Har. Har. Pie baking...sweet.

    I respect your capacity with bad puns and hope to sink to that level some time today in my interactions with others. I'm inspired to create a true groaner.

    If I wanted to buy him, I would have offered him money. It would have been far more clear.

    "Will you be my Man-Whore of Affection?"

    "Huh?"

    "Here is legal tender. Hold me."

    Except it wasn't a pun.

    But hey, keep doing it your way, and keep watching INFPs run as fast as they can.

    I have a new system. Whenever I'm trying to be funny, I will put one of these at the end of a post.



    Except I'm being serious about what I'm going to do if I'm trying to be funny, so now I've included the emoticon in a serious post.

    What shall I do?

    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I wore a dress once in the spirit of romanticism.

    My boyfriend was another INTJ though, so the effort was definately not worth it.

    Embrace the possibilities.

    Cranky - I think you're off the hook. You said you'd put it at the END of the post, and clearly the winking yellow blob is NOT at the end. You're good to go

    Embrace the possibilities.

    I told her we were going out to dinner. On the way, I said that I had gotten lost and asked her to reach into the glove box and get a map. Inside were tickets for that night to see her favorite band.

    See, we can be romantic!
    You're lucky you weren't dating another INTJ... My reactions would have been:

    1. Are you going to pay to get these things cleaned up too?
    2. Who exactly are you buying these for... me or you?
    3. DAMMIT! I'm wearing HEELS! How am I going to dance at a concert in HEELS!

    Probably works on other types though.

    Embrace the possibilities.
