Against the Iraq war and recent attacks on Libya ("We're only there for the oil! We didn't do anything in Cairo because they have nothing we want.").
Morally against abortion ("It's like a murder.") but would consider if his girlfriend got pregnant ("Think about it -- you have food, diapers, shots, clothing, and we live paycheck to paycheck.").
Is against anything that's illegal and "bad" (drugs) but is for illegal things that are "good" (loopholes that help people).
Against homosexuality ("It's not natural. God made men with penises and women with vaginas. They naturally go together.").
Very devoted to his family and says often that he would never cheat on his future wife.
Once his ex-wife left him for someone else, that was it. There was no consideration of going back to the relationship.

Wants to deal with conflicts right away, in the moment.
Shows his love through actions – cooking a meal, bringing home a favorite beverage, being a generous and attentive host.

Is not consistently affectionate and especially not in public. When he withdraws affection, girlfriend withdraws affection to match, which brings out a "Hey! Why aren't you hugging me?! Why didn't you kiss me hello?!" response from him.
Actively working on being more affectionate in public (his prompting).
Once he says something, he expects the other person to think of that as a final, unalterable statement/position.
Gets into conflict with INFP girlfriend when he makes statements like, “You’d be hotter with long hair. And I’d love you more,” and “You’re friend’s hair smells nice,” and “You shouldn’t feel that way. You’re being silly and acting like a child.”
