When I was much younger, one of my best friends (an ENTP) asked me out on a date, which I remember totally shocking me at the time (now it wouldn't, I have learned to pick up on external cues). I said "no" and literally went on talking about whatever it was we had been before that. I basically *refused* to let it be awkward. Like I deleted the event. Strange, I know. Years later we are still really great friends.
