So I can honestly say that every relationship I've ever had, I've never found that my partner had enough passion and love in their hearts for me. I've often felt like I'm the only one who loves and the only one who needs love.
I'm an INFP female, but I've matured socially and am not afraid to voice my opinion or tell others exactly what is going on inside my head. Often this can get me into trouble, but I still do it anyhow on account of my preference for honesty no matter what the cost.
So I met an INFP male. He's younger than me, and a lot less self aware than I am. More like he knows what lurks inside of himself and he's afraid of it and isn't willing to come to terms with it. He also measures his worth in life as directly proportional to success and doesn't realize that loving yourself is about accepting yourself no matter what you have accomplished - or haven't. He also seems very unable to come to a decision about his feelings for me.
Now here's the issue on a more personal scale. I sort of turned around and realized I was madly in love with him. Like I can already tell, "no" is not an option here. I'm going to burn for this one until I keel over, whether he feels it for me or not.
I have talked with him about his views, and he stubbornly clung to what he believes. Just like I would've, back when I was more similar to his age and a little more confused.
I'm not exactly sure what to do. Is there really any way to convince him that he's in love with me?
Is there a way to successfully break contact with him? Is there a way to get over the love feelings so that we can be successful friends? If none of that is an option, then what?
I'd really like to hear everyone's thoughts and comments and questions and relations and whatever else, as it pertains to this. Also honestly, I think it could work out with us very well, if only he could accept himself and get over the past. He actually also feels that way, but seems entirely up in the air about the situation right now, which in general seems like "bad" thing in regards to any future "us" situations.
