    Watching little children play around and be adorable. Watching animals play around being adorable. Watching people just having fun interacting with each other (it's awesome if I'm in the room too). Having an epiphany about something.

    Most importantly, looking into my lover's eyes and seeing nothing but pure love every single damn time.

    I don't think I've ever made this shit eating grin before. But if I had, it was because I was nervous. I think I have a habit of nervous smiling (sorta like nervous laughter). Gladness and delight ... there's something extremely exciting and fulfilling for me when I finally confirm a hunch I've had over a certain amount of time that I can't quite prove, but I just *know* is true. It's like a release of endorphins when I finally get that confirmation.

    Also, being in love (I am not kidding that I hate that feeling) and also finding a really good book.

    I have before but if it goes in a way that becomes clear to me that the person is interested, I won't drag it along. I'll just stop or evaluate whether or not that person can behave themselves. Please understand that gender differences might be at play here, though.

    I also wonder - over what amount of time? Me and one of my best friends have texted each other every day for the past 2 years, not a single day missed (that I recall). We are in a contrasexual friendship and are not romantically involved. Should I be concerned that maybe he might be interested in me since it has been a thing over 2 years? I mean, that's a rhetorical question, but I think that behaviour over time is a stronger indicator than the behaviour itself. If this has been going on for 2 months, eh? If it has been going on for 2 years ... maybe? If it has been going on for 2 decades, omg you guys need to hook up already because the sexual tension would be thick even for two S inferiors lol.

    having my thoughts/ideas completely comprehended by another meatbag. especially in a group setting. that sweet moment where you've given your input and half regret it because most peoples faces are glazed over or looking confused and that one person is like "omg i totally get what you're saying" and actually explains not only the connection between my words and the topic but also expounds on it further showing they're working with what im putting out

    might as well be foreplay ::takes a drag::

    yea sure. granted i hate texting to begin with but even ive done it before. the crux here is how good is the conversation? idc if its same gender opposite gender romantically or unromantic factors, if the convo is good, if i want to hear more from the other person, i can ignore the medium used.

    The eye fusion lovegaze... that's a good one. And being in the presence of enjoyment!

    When I read your post, I have to admit my first reaction was, "whoa, an INTJ used the word adorable twice in one post??" Then I thought, "quit your subconscious stereotyping, INTJs can say adorable as much as they like!", and then I saw the pure love part and was taken aback again, thinking "wow, INTJs are shocking me today!" and then I finally looked at your avatar and saw INFJ :) I had a sigh of relief moment, the universe righted itself, and then thought "stop it, you're stereotyping again..." lol.

    The nervous smile sounds like it could be an advantage, other people probably find you confident when you're not feeling so internally.
    The confirmed hunch thing is very relatable! It's very satisfying to be vindicated :) But why do you hate the feeling of being in love?

    Stargazing.

    At least, that's the reliable one.
    Yessss. And then thinking "there's more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of all the oceans of Earth" ...makes me shiver when I think about that and look at the night sky.

    Being seen and understood for a moment and valued, and your thoughts being put to use as a springboard ... oof! Incomparable. Wish it would happen more often!

    When I get to say the last word
    Noted! Wait, maybe that means I shouldn't reply? Aahhh! Too late. Thanks everyone, and I hope something delightful happens for you this week!

    When I'm in love I feel completely out of control. I act strangely. I stay up way into the night talking to my beloved. I cannot sleep if I think he could be in danger. I worry about him all the time. I feel like someone is constantly reaching inside my head and scrambling my brain. I can't make a single logical decision regarding my beloved and I don't actively care, but there's the *real* me pushed to the side that's screaming "no! run away!" It makes it so that everything else in my life is completely eclipsed when we have a single disagreement. I'm sensitive to the silliest things and I care so much what he thinks.

    I mean, completely out of control feeling.

    With my children, who I also love, I at least know that yes, I make some decisions that might seem irrational, but I know it's for their protection and I would always pick safety-first. For example, some parents let their kids go to school on a day that the FBI had warned there was a threat of a school shooting in our state. I, however, kept my kids at home. I knew the chances of the threat being at their school was low, I knew that they had extra security there, I knew all the things, but I just didn't feel comfortable with them going to school that day, so they got to stay home. Nothing happened but I would make the same decision every time. That's different. The love "makes sense".

    Being in love doesn't really make sense to me. It seems erratic and out-of-control. I LOVE the feeling; it's great, but it's also scary and I don't mean like I'm scared to be vulnerable or I'm scared of commitment. I'd just like to operate with my full mental faculties and when I'm around my beloved I cannot think straight and I'm at the mercy of grey eyes and curly brown hair and his crooked mouth and his warm hands. But mostly his mind and everything about him. He just permeates everything. It's really annoying! lol.
