I have a suspicion my INTP male friend (with "benefits") is growing attached to me, but he doesn't realize what he's feeling because it's an outgrowth of friendship and he has only ever felt "in love" twice. Both times were clearly infatuation and chemistry, but they were not healthy relationships.
If this is so, what would the signs be? I'm sure that if I tried to talk to him about it at this point, he'd deny it vehemently and say that I was just a close, important friend to him...but that doesn't explain why he wanted to sleep with me EVERY NIGHT this past week. He also wants to communicate with me every day, and often remarks on how well I understand him and what a cool person I am. He is otherwise quite down on humanity.
My intuition is on high alert here, but with Fi and Ne constantly competing in me, it's hard to tell sometimes, so I thought I'd ask other INTPs for some help in understanding their brother.
I care a lot for him. I'm not sure what I feel or want otherwise, though. The last thing I want is for either of us to hurt each other.
