    ESFJ girls are like kryptonite to me. They just completely flummox me especially if they're attractive. I turn into a blubbering irrational mess, I couldn't stand any prolonged interest romantically though..Id probably go insane.

    I also hate how they have a tendency to DOMINATE conversations and take full advantage of my preference and comfort for listening.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    I don't know if I'd date well, but I would avoid dating an INTP just because I've seen the INTP/INTJ pairing work out very disastrously before. My instinct would be to look for an xNFJ or an ISTx partner... though I must admit the ENTs make me laugh and feel happy.

    I am an NT with an NF and I agree with this. Not some much coming out of my shell as he gave me the ability to open up and at my own pace.

    Interesting, that's not my experience of NF's... usually I tend to feel like they're hurrying me to open up, and take it as a kind of affront if I don't... there's a feeling that their like, respect etc of me is dependent on me opening up within an expected time frame, which makes me feel that the whole thing is so obviously conditional on my becoming their vision of what I should be. It creates a feeling of great insecurity for me that's not pleasant, relaxing or supportive at all.

    Maybe I just got me some badass ones... I still maintain though that FJ's (GENERALLY - there are counterexamples of course) bring in me an overwhelming feeling all the time of being disapproved of. Their presence is like a constant waggling finger of death lol

    I think for him...he realized early on that pushing would only cause me to close up more. Close up to him and that is something he definitely doesn't want. I don't think he's ever approached a relationship in the way he does with ours (I know I haven't either). Oh I had to go against my nature and outside of my comfort zone to grow and develop several times. But so did he. I don't know if that is typical. I know I was beginning to have physical issues because of what I had to say that never came out to anyone before. But he's never pushed.

    Just do not analyzise your mate before you have at least went 4-5 times to the cinema with him.

    In the end we are still NT's and we dont get many girls.

    That's what we do isnt it ?

    Ah, same here.

    My gf (INFJ) has consistently been there for me no matter how much of a douche I can be. I experienced many romantic relationship firsts because she was patient and gave me a safe psychological/emotional space to open up in, over a long period of time.
