    Very good advice. Honestly, I would never demand that, as I have passionate pursuits of my own. Also, one of the (many) reasons I admire him, is the way he joyfully and seriously brings his ideas into the world-- it's super inspiring and encouraging for me, to see him doing that! Both of us are of the mindset to encourage/challenge each other further towards those things, not away from them.

    That's a good mindset you have. Going along with my guru-like advice I gave you in your blog part of keeping him interested in you is to let him expand his mind into all kinds of interests. You don't necessarily even have to attempt to become interested in those things either. In fact, in some cases it's probably better if he has other interests that don't include you at all. Because when he's done satiating that other interest (could be something academic , video games, sports, etc.) he's going to be 'refueled' and need your stimulation. We aren't very good at focusing in on a particular thing for a sustained period of time rather we are (mind) expansionists sort of like shitty colonists. We want to grab more land but don't want to spend too much time trying to improve it haha.

    Oh i see. An intp. Yeah that makes sense. Half of them are hopeless goofs in relationships. He should know its O-K not to be entp.
