    I am the most oblivious person ever when it comes to figuring out if a guy likes me.

    that is. ONLY if I like him . . . .

    I'll still be like ".... ...you mean like like? or just like?"
    Haha! Must be an NT thing! I am ALWAY trying to qualify the statements.

    I don't get the hints very easily. That's why I like a guy to be direct! LOL

    I remember a few guys getting all mad at me because I was hanging out and talking to them only to find out they thought we were dating and I had no idea!

    OOOPs!

    Don't worry about it. Someone out there will accept you for who you are and you'll be happy!
    You're awesome!

    My closest friend X (female INFP) has a close female INTP friend (Z). Z is a friend of mine too and is very fond of me and always wants to hang out. I like her too but, for some reason, I can never truly relax around her. I'm (usually) NEVER ruffled and I can't quite pinpoint exactly why but... I just can't relax around Z. I'm always fidgeting and looking at the clock and...

    EDIT: I think it's cause of the way I feel like I don't measure up based on whatever internal meter she has and she's just being nice... or tolerating me. Or she pities me. Dammit, I don't know.

    Maybe she likes you? I am an INTJ but close to INTP and if I act like I really like someone, I almost invariably do. And us INTs judge ourselves as much as others, if not more. I have low self esteem, and so does the INTP I like. We both think the other is a better person, so don't worry about not being up enough on her metre. If she doesn't like you, she'll probably criticize what she disagrees with. Niceness from an INTP is a good thing.

    Because I've been hoping for someone I click with romantically for a while now. I know I'm only 18 but still, not ever having a bf has been concerning. Is it more likely for INTPs to find someone later in life? :/ i hope not

    i'm in my mid-20s now.

    I think it's very normal for INTPs in general to start late or be a "late bloomer", though I hate that expression. It just takes us a while to figure people out but once you do (and experience is the only way) you'll gain a lot of confidence. Use that Fe!

    I was 20 when I got my first bf (and had sex), which some might think is late but it was the right time for me.

    Also, I find a fair amount of compatible people in academic settings, probably why I never want to leave. But the real world can be a desert for potential mates... just do what you love and you'll find the people that love those things too. That's really the best you can do.
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    I concur, although I am not female I will agree that I think people become drawn to you around the age of 20. I am 19 and I have had more girls give me looks than I had during high, middle, and elementary school combined. (Well moving from 0 to 1 is still considered a difference.)

    Yeah, it's definitely not that. She's attached (to an IxTJ. As am I; to an INFJ) and we both want very different things out of a r/ship.

    I should add; we get along like a house on fire on IM. I make her LOL lots. In person though, I turn into a nervous preteen...

    OMG! that sounds like me!

    I remember, my first boyfriend( @ 18, yes, late-bloomer), We were going out and dating for like 2 weeks. and I naively thought we were just hanging out and liked eachother...

    until we were at a barbecue with his friends and his friend looked at us and asked " so are you guys like boyfriend-girlfriend". and we both answered at the exact same time

    Him: Yes.
    Me: No..

    Reaction:
    Him
    Me:


    thats how I found out we were dating. hahahahahaah

    Lol so true

    Took me ages to work people out

    Now I mimic their behavior to fit in perfectly, works a charm

    To me it still makes no sense to act the way most people do, but at least I won't get punched in the face... or worse

    My 'wife' is INTP. I find this to be quite suitable, and have reason to believe she feels likewise. The general consensus from spectators is that we are suffering through a cold and distant relationship. I won't argue the cold and distant aspect, but ironic as it sounds, I think it's the glue that binds us. She's the only woman I've ever known who doesn't believe she has an inalienable right to continually challenge my emotions. I cherish our ability to delve into a wildly ambitious conversation after not speaking to each other for three days, for no particular reason. I love not needing a reason, and love not having to take on the task of demanding one from her to defend my own lack of reasons. Her problem-solving approach is the same as mine...we both need time and space to muse in private. She's the one person I can count on to not punish me for my silence or force a game of 'beat the clock' upon my responses. After nearly fifteen years I still feel an almost giddy anticipation when I sense she's working herself up to tell me something. It's like those final few moments before you step into the roller coaster after waiting in line for so long.

    Admittedly, I have no idea if these things are INTP-related, that's just my personal impression of it. Hell, I wouldn't even be here if my wife hadn't brought up the subject of Typology.
