My sister is an ENTP, and we go quite well together, except for some few arguments which is generally uncommon.
@Brandifly so, what's the current status? Are things still going well?
I don't know why but I really enjoyed reading this thread. :)
So... first gigantic disagreement down and we're stronger for it. We both got emotional and yet we both managed to not hate each other at the end of it. Like I said, communication is key. We talked it out for at least 2 hours before we came to an understanding. It was kind of a stupid disagreement but I blame Fi for that, I got all upset over something that isn't that big a deal. No I'm not going to tell you what it was, don't ask, it's all in the past. For ENTP/ENFP, communication is VITAL. You really can't go into it expecting them to read your mind. You need to talk everything out.
That goes for all relationships.
I suppose the ENFP in my story was(/is. Still manhating and not into a real relationship up to this day. Thinks us not working out was my fault alone) really unhealthy, and I was immature and naive too, so it didn't help, but I always thought it could work. Which was why I invested so much in it.
Thing is that ENFPs take long to mature, probably more than any other type, and any mature ENFP can attest to this.
But you're some cute little pies.
Immature especially if I am pissed off, it's really ridiculous.
Im on my third marriage, crazy huh? But my INTJ hubby is on his third marriage too do it makes me feel better. :)
So, I'm always telling him I met him later because there was a time I was too young and too immature to appreciate all that he is now.
Watch out for competing personalities. Also, over analyzing.
Soooo... Current status is: Great! We are officially in a relationship now. My ENTP is so sweet and thoughtful...sigh...
Here and there I have fears and worries, but overall things are great and we talk a lot about the future. I have noticed that this is the first relationship that I have not been the main talker, spotlight person. I guess most of my past relationships have been with introverts. I notice that I naturally step into stride right behind him, because he's always telling me about something. I enjoy listening to him, but also need to make sure I can express my thoughts, feelings and stories.
My only other concern is, whether or not we are on the same page with what we think is appropriate in a relationship as far as contact and whatnot, with the opposite sex and other moral/value type items that are important to me.
I love that he has a ton of energy, and is so thoughtful. He is an AMAZING cook, very tidy and takes good care of the things in his life as well as the important people in his life. He works hard, but knows how to balance work with play.
I REALLY struggle with making plans in advance and making it to anything on time, so that is something I am trying to work on with all of my might. I know that is his biggest peeve about me. I wish I had a magic wand to make me organized and on-time, but for now, I just have to keep working on it, because I care about what is important to him.
I have a lot of hope for our future together. I can see though, that it's definitely a "timing" thing that is right, right now. I'm not sure if it would've worked as well if either of us were younger. He needed his time to get his single-bachelorhood out of his system. I don't think I would've appreciated him the way I am able to now, because I would've been basing my decisions solely on feelings and infatuation before. I now understand that love is something that grows with time and infatuation never lasts, so I am able to take a more logical approach to looking at our relationship. I definitely have strong feelings for him, but more importantly, I admire him, I am attracted to him, and he has many qualities and attributes that I know I ultimately want in a mate :)
I will keep you updated!
I'm in day 25 with my ENTP boyfriend and it's going splendidly. There were a few disagreements but we've ironed them out already. We've agreed that this is the best relationship either one of us has ever been in. My love life has been almost nonexistent but he assures me I'm a natural and he's very happy with me. He's been in a few relationships but he says I'm more of what he's looking for.
I love this relationship and I absolutely love him. I've never been able to trust anyone this completely or have this much fun with another person. We make each other laugh out loud and I think we both need it. I really like that he has strong Fe, which means he's a lot more attuned to my emotions than the typical ENTP. In fact, he's definitely an ENTP but he doesn't fit the type descriptions online at all. He's a unique ENTP. I like that. Maybe that's why we work out so well.
Anyway, I'll fill you all in on my amazing relationship and I'll say again, ENTP/ENFP works if you put forth the effort!! And let me tell you, this relationship has not been easy but it's been worth it.
