    Who Loves Fives? Why?

    This is not intended as one of those mopey "who will ever love me threads", I am genuinely curious as to what types if any are most attracted to Fives. I arrived at this question during my research on Twos in which I found that they really didn't seem to have a strong opinion of Fives one way or the other. I have read that Twos often gravitate toward Eights and Fours because of their strong sense of self/individuality and that Sixes sometimes gravitate to Nines because of their relatively laid back nature.

    Which Enneagram types are attracted to Fives and why?

    Please note that I am mostly interested in anecdotal rather than empirical evidence as I'd like to hear possible reasons why and because in all likelihood I have already seen the data. Personal experiences are encouraged though speculation is welcome.

    So are you saying that people have a tendency to gravitate to those who are their integrated type? In that case, it would be 7s. I can't really say I've noticed that any particular type gravitates towards me though...

    In my experience, fours, other fives, sevens, eights, and nines have been attracted to me. Fours, sevens, and eights are probably the most drawn to me, other fives and nines somewhat less so, although my current partner is also a five. Ones, threes, and sixes tend not to be attracted to me and in fact we don't tend to get along with each other very well at all. I don't know very many twos, so I can't speak to that.

    I immediately thought that's what this was upon seeing the title, and was going to respond with irritation, as all the self-pitying gets annoying after a while. Good to see that isn't what this is.

    No, I agree. Actually I have no problem with people liking me, but being a Five, I am always eager to find some kind of pattern. The women who have been attracted to me seem to follow no discernible pattern (other than that they are often ESFPs). This is why I am asking others for ideas. It is an intellectual exercise only as I don't believe in looking for someone solely on the basis of type.

    Perhaps Fives simply do not attract any particular type. Maybe Fives are simply so guarded about their inner workings that other variables account for a much larger share of why people are attracted to us. Of course this is mere conjecture on my part and I am really fascinated to hear other opinions.

    Known to have been attracted to me:

    One person I'd definitely pin as a 4w5. Long-time contact.
    One person who is most likely a 1. Not sure about wing, she showed possible signs of both.

    I can't say much more than that, but I'm curious about the answer to this as well. Traditionally I don't pay much attention to this stuff, and it tends to startle me when someone claims romantic interest in me.

    I love Fives. I love the independence, genuineness, sense of humor, wit, intellect, autonomy, discretion, frankness, depthness, and secret world that Fives possess. I instinctively get you guys and I really click with "real" Fives. I can definitely see a Five being the yang to my yin. I find Fives to be very unique in their perspective and the way in which they go about doing things. Although it can be frustrating at times, I still love the non-compromising spirit of Five.

    It is amazing that so much warmth and transparency resides beneath such a tough and callous surface. Anyway, I love Fives and am intensely attracted to Fives...one of the rare types that give me a mental AND a physical orgasm. LOL!

    Well I appreciate the compliments, but you still haven't answered the question. Do you know what type you are?
