    Confused by an INTP guy.

    This INTP guy and I were getting to know each other and liked each other, but due to distance it was difficult. We stopped talking..it just kind of happened no specific reason. He texted me the other day which surprised me since we haven't talked in 5 months. When he texted me he acted like nothing had changed. Why would he do this? What does this mean? I'm confused.

    Time is relative:) I do that a lot. For you this is 5 months for him it's just been some time. I can stop talking with my closest friends for 1- 2 months(sometimes one year) and then just write to see if they are still alive and talk on a daily basis with them for 3 days just to stop talking again:P

    But... whats weird about that? It doesn't mean anything. It's just the same as if he had texted you after 5 hours.

    Lol, this is classic INTP behavior. Probably thought of you but just didn't know how else to start things up again...so he went right into it.

    I do this, what's the deal? Would you rather him not text you?

    Yeah, I think her concern is the whole texting 'game'. I've heard of this before, but I never really paid it any mind.

    The texting 'game' is a game of flirtation, apparently, when the two parties involved try to avoid texting as much as possible without having the other party lose interest.

    So if you respond too quickly or with too much information, you can be seen as too eager.

    I never understood, so I just texted people at my own pace. That means the window between two texts can range anywhere between one second and a year. I think that most INTPs either a) don't understand the game or b) never cared to play, so your INTP guy probably didn't mean anything by the delayed time range.

    He probably did think of you, but was too shy to text. Or in the worst case scenario, he kept procrastinating on texting you back.

    I say B which equals A. If I like someone, I'm not going to play games. you either like me, or you don't. I am either good enough or I'm not. Either way, I am going come in like someone who is sincerely interested(which to most people equals eager I think), and if you reject me, I'm gone.

    I'm an old man, I have no time for games.

    Get used to it. INTPs disappear, but that doesn't mean you are not in their heads.

    Normal, understandably not really acceptable for everyone.
