The pain and disappointment when we wake up is even greater. That isn't a reproach to INFPs, but many people just like to present themselves (at the beginning of relationships) as something they are not! INFP's are the Myers Briggs type who values authenticity above all and this is hard to tolerate for us and feels a bit like fraud. I'm currently completely done with infatuation and focus more on other areas of life. The high investment in feelings for people who exploit it is simply not worth it.
I have a very complex relationship with infatuation... I would be institutionalized if I let my infatuation with what I'm really infatuated with run rampant... beauty, love, positivity, originality, personality, and conceptual theories of life itself... I can fall head over heals in a second for anyone who embodies just one of these qualities.
Now because I don't want to be institutionalized I have become infatuated with the beauty of darkness, emotional anguish, sorrow just to keep my feet on the ground so that I can interact with people around me without scaring people... ironically enough
