I want to ask how you know for sure an ENTP loves you... (I'm talkin' romantic love) ...
IF the ENTP has been horribly hurt in the realm of love
is a young ENTP (20, aka immature
!) trying to establish his sense of identity if the world (in college, not near me at the moment) ...
my gut feeling in general has been: He loves me. Our relationship is near epic proportions. I cannot deny it anymore, I cannot say less than I am in
love with this person. It is that mythical rare transcendent/transcendental/cosmic/relationship that you doubt will ever happen to you again.
The first time we hung out, we spent 12 hours talking (dusk to dawn... this subsequently happened many more times!)... we barely knew each other previous to this. My intuition was FORCING me to meet this person who was actually interested in my friend at the time I forced myself to meet him.
When I talk to him/am with him, my gut says: He loves me! It is established I am his best friend, even though he has an absurd amount of "friends". He only goes to school about 30 minutes away and sees his other friends (almost always guys, and no close girl friends) from back home, but I have not seen him in six months.
My INFJ sensibility tells me he is purposefully keeping a distance so as to preserve what we have... Preserving in a vaccuum sealed glass jar and putting it on a self... only opening it in case of dire need (aka those times when the ENTP is alone, those rare occasions, and his deepest thoughts surface... those are the times we come in contact) School is keeping him super stimulated and active, and in typical ENTP fashion he is great at compartmentalizing his life. It should be noted he told me that while this has been the best year of his life, and school is fantastic, he feels like there is something missing, and that something is me! (Which apparently is a big deal to say...)
