    ENTP and INFP relationships

    Ok so i have a little dilemma when it comes to having a relationship with an ENTP guy (i'm INFP). It lasted 2 weeks and i know for a fact he only got into the relationship because i knew how to tickle his interest, however he did mention he is attracted to me but not that much to the point of having to commit to a stable relationship, let's just say he chickened out of it, and he admitted it.

    Typical ENTP: tons of friends, tons of short relationships, very talkative but also appreciates silence moments, insane humor, self confidence up to the point of narcissism, likes the attention but also wants to have privacy, can read people very well, lots of mood swings, weird reactions and actions sometimes, loyal to his close ones, reliable, multi-tasker, etc.
    I can normally tell when someone is sweet-talking, using me or lying to me, and he never gave me that impression, although his constant on/off mood-swings were a little difficult to put up with, because i didn't have the certainty he is in the relationship.

    Anyway to make the long story short, he saw in our relationship the pattern of the other relationships he had had so far and decided we should end it before he disappoints me. Bottom line is.. i want him back, he mentioned there was attraction.. and i'm trying to see how i can spark his interest again.

    My question would be.. what can i do to catch his attention in a crowd? We're university colleagues, he's 1 year ahead of me, but we spend all breaks together with our mutual group of friends (he didn't want to share the relationship with this group of people, but didn't seem uncomfortable meeting other people who aren't our colleagues)

    What makes an ENTP question their decisions, or rethink them through?

    LOL I snorted when I saw you write "...university colleagues..."; yes, yes, the esteemed ivory tower romance :P

    Hahaha I remember I knew absolutely nothing about how to have a serious relationship back in college. In fact, I learned the most about how relationships work from fights and breaking up (the sex was always the best after fights though)...

    Oh, yeah, you're asking for advice about how to get your ENTP back.

    You can't, really. Sorry. I mean, you can try to get him to talk about himself, etc., but then he'll just use you as a source of plenary ego-boosting. When he/you get tired of that the game will be over (again).

    However, I've said this before and I'll say it again: ENTPs are attracted to excellence. By not trying to get him back, and by being excellent in who you are (i.e. physically, morally, intellectually, etc.), he will naturally be attracted to the highest common denominator. Let him chase you because he wants to chase a girl who is desirable. Don't try make him want you (he'll sense it). Because even if you guys screw, he won't really, deep down inside, commit to you; he'll just see you as a piece of convenient ass (and maybe feel a bit guilty about it afterwards, but nothing to lose sleep over).

    First off, I'm not sure an INFP/ENTP is a good combo. I have several INFP friends but they are all male, so I don't know how romantic mechanics work between the two types. What I do know is that we make good friends as long as we keep our distance. I have dramatically different views on how to handle life than an INFP does and it comes up when they ask me for advice (mostly work related).

    But if you want an ENTP's attention go to a parking ramp somewhere, send him a naked picture of yourself with a complex math equation that works out to your current local. Then leave a piece of your clothing there with a clue to your next location. Do that 2-3 times before you wait for him at his place. You'll have his interest for atleast one night.
