I've dated an INTJ, an INTP, and an ENTJ, but never an ENTP. To be honest, I really don't know a lot about my "Thinker" counterparts-- at least, not to the extent that I've learned about the other NTs.
Recently, I've met a lovely ENTP male. I can't help but be attracted to him; he's intelligent, witty, kind, charming and of course, hilarious. He's very flirtatious, and he constantly contacts me, wanting to know how my day was, to share some insight or new discovery, or debate. He's fun, and he's also the type of guy that could sweep any woman off their feet. I don't know though, I feel as though I'm merely one of many. He's playful and loud and mischievous-- so much like me in many ways, and it's something I've never experienced to this extent with other NTs.
I recently got out of an emotionally draining relationship, and I've been feeling quite reserved and withdrawn, which is quite unlikely. Mr. Lovely-ENTP has asked me out, and I politely declined his offer, explaining the situation but letting him know that I would absolutely love to when the time is right and that I hoped he wouldn't forget about me. He assured me that he couldn't, but I have my doubts about that.A dynamic, charismatic, intelligent character such as himself has no trouble attracting women, and he loves adding another notch to his bedpost.
I guess I'm worried that by the time I feel ready to hit the dating world again, whether it be in search of a long term, committed relationship leading to more, or a casual fling, that'll he'll have grown bored of me.
Anyway, seeing as I have no experience with ENTP males, I want to know about your experiences with ENFPs- particular emphasis on friendship and romantic relations.
Would you say that these types truly are significantly similar?
What are the differences that one should be aware of that could be cause for misunderstanding?
What do you like about ENFPs? (What makes them great partners/friends?) What do you dislike about ENFPs?
What have your relationships with ENFPs been like? Would you say that they started out with fireworks and quickly fizzled, as others have said? Did you grow bored of one another?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
