I thought that I would never again experience the maddening, sickening infatuation for somebody that I did as a growing teenager. But then I randomly got it as an adult like a dynamite explosion in my stomach! After I was coming out of a long relationship, I became infatuated with someone after one brief meeting, and I could hardly eat for a week... It was fantastic!
My last couple of crushes haven't been so intense that I stop eating, but they make me feel very out of control with that person. They come as waves of rapturous emotion! I'm in love with the feeling of "being in love." It's not actually love, of course. (I assume.)
I got to dance bachata with a very, very attractive man the other day. It was a really good time, and I can't stop thinking about how amazing he is! I know we can't be in a relationship because we do not have the same goals in life, and we will probably never see each other again, but oh the longing! If I could just dance with him again!! I don't even care that he likes Donald Trump! ()
When I get a crush, I tend to milk it for all it's worth, no matter how illogical it is. It's a chance for my emotions to be alive, and I can benefit from those stimulating endorphins in my daily life.
So.... Do you like being infatuated with people? Do we as INFPs have some similarities in the way we experience it?
Another thought is that for me to be in a good relationship with someone, I don't think I should be truly infatuated with them. I act so out of line with my morality and good sense, and it ruins everything. Maybe when I'm 30, these reckless feelings will stop and I'll be able to think clearly! But I don't want the feelings to stop; I just want it to be right.
