1. They want an all-in-one kind of love.
Theyre age-old beings and hopeless romantics so theyre constantly looking for a special relationship and a partner who can be their best friend, their buff, their comrade — person they can have fun with and someone they can share all their secrets with.
2. They cant get into meaningless relationships.
Theyre not good at modern dating since they are get attached easily and they believe in true love. Their nerves cant see or tolerate casual flings, almost relationships or dating more than one person at the same time.
3. They’re misunderstood.
Because theyre introverts and overly emotional, they often have a hard time conveying themselves to others especially when it comes to explaining their most intricate sensations. Many times, they can be perceived as aloof , non-friendly or stand-offish but thats genuinely because theyre struggling to outline how they genuinely feel.
4. They get hurt easily.
INFPs are feelers so they seem everything so deeply. It takes them a while to bounce back from criticism or rejection, they cant just get over their sentiments, they need time to mend and even more time to open up again.
5. Theyre their own worst enemies.
Their over thoughts and over analytical nature can lead them to accept things and misread people, especially in the early stages of the relationship which can sabotage it before it even starts because they tend to take things personally.
6. Theyre either all in or all out.
When it comes to love, they cant do in-between, they cant settle for mediocre or only settle for someone theyre not completely fucked up. Love fuels their imagination and invigorates their lives. So if its not the desire they dream about, they will never be happy or is in compliance with the relationship.
7. Theyre too honest for their own good.
Theyre the ones who will tell you how they feel, what the hell is want, how they want it or how much they love you. They cant feign not to care or play it cool. Theyre genuine people and when it comes to their feelings, they cant lie to themselves. Theyll always select franknes over games even if it means being single forever.
8. They carry the weight of “the worlds” on their shoulders.
They care deeply about causes, people and even strangers. They worry about their friends and family. They worry about “the worlds”. They worry about the environment and the future. Theyre allows one to burdening themselves with more than they can handle and that frustrates a lot of people theyre with since they are perceive it as
9. They may still need their alone time a lot.
INFPs are full of contradictions, so while theyre all about sharing everything with their partner, they still need their space and their alone time frequently to recharge their batteries and deal with the hurricane of emotions running through them. They need to fall back in order to come back stronger.
10. Theyre not ever out and about.
They dont go out all the time and even though they do, theyre not very approachable because of their quiet and reserved demeanor. This induces it harder for them to meet people out or commit person a fair chance to approach them.
