    I do have about 400 people I hang out with yeah, but I don't have 400 friends, there's a difference. Also, my attention span is very short if I'm not interested. Friends and relationships... I'm interested in.

    Bingo. It's important to make that distinction.

    Constant attraction to the same stereotype comes either from a highly subjective PoV on the world, in which all human heads start to look like bananas and it will in most cases end for the weilder in a gunfight on the street in the wild west while waving a banner shouting: "This is a soccer match and my team's gonna win !"

    Or the root of the source of the root to only being attracted to entp men lies in the phrase itself. "I am only attracted to entp men", as a phrase in itself makes room for, wild guess, 10 different interpretations of the mental sanity of the shouter and they are all bad.

    I'll report back when I can come up with something better

    What's your enneagram?

    If you're an e4 ENFP and the ENTPs you've been in relationships with were e7, then your attraction to them would make sense. Fours and Sevens are naturally intrigued by each other because they're obvious opposites.

    Unfortunately, that's been my experience with them as well.

    I usually just end up feeling like another notch.

    Meh. I don't think I have this.

    Edit: Or maybe, it's true. Hmmm.

    Sure they're all ENTPs? We're not all that common, you know.

    Considering
    * I dislike most of humanity but have a handful of longtime, close friends,
    * have been married 15 years to the same woman (first and only marriage for both of us) and all my pre-marriage relationship were 2+ years each

    I'd say your assessment of ENTPs is spot-on :rolli:

    Your feeling is not reality.
