We got some requests to do a guide to dating INFPs, especially from our friends at The INTJway and Brittany volunteered to take it on.Which is good, because I don’t know what it takes to date an NFP, being one.-Suzannah Side note: Though I’ve found this to be applicable to INFP’s, this list is supposed to be somewhat humorous.
If your INFP proves to be able to get under your skin (or at least thinks they have), they will feel all the more close to you.
#5 You MUST have patience (at least when it comes to emotional outbursts).
To the NTJ’s especially, you need to know that INFP’s just cry sometimes about things that are unsolvable (or even ridiculous in the eyes of others).
Usually the best thing to do is to ask “What can I do for you right now? But don’t expect to solve the problem for them in this case.
Everyone's obviously different and I’m, by no mean, trying to stereotype anyone here :) ~ B (This is in no particular order)#1 You must understand that your INFP needs space sometimes. If you’re an Extrovert like me, then you’ll get annoyed or confused by this need they have. #3 You have to be able to talk sense into your INFP. Despite their type, INFP’s can be very logical people.
But just remember, most likely your INFP will come back with a fresh mind and a new appreciation for the relationship. Though they don’t naturally go there when making decisions, they are readily accepting of a thought pattern that makes sense. If you aren’t this person in the relationship, your INFP will float away with the passing clouds.In this case, absence really does make the heart grow fonder! You might not understand the method to their madness sometimes. #4 You should be someone that catches their attention; someone unique, someone that thinks for themselves, someone different from the crowd. And even more than that, they love people who swim against the current.It’s also a good advantage to be a hard shell to crack/ have a tough exterior.Sometimes the best thing to do is to just sit with them/ hold them as they release their emotions.#6 Show your INFP respect, especially when it comes to their ideas/ thoughts!They are used to being tramped on, disregarded or ignored. They will end up hating you if you’re constantly putting their ideas down.
