But seriously, what does it look like? This is one area where I don't have an answer.

The myth of Diana and Actaeon...

Actaeon, a young hunter, stumbles on Diana, goddess of the hunt, in the woods. She is naked and bathing, and Actaeon immediately becomes enraptured, at which point Diana realizes his presence and taken aback, she turns him into a stag. He flees through the forest, and she sends her hounds to rip him apart.

That's INTP love in my experience.

Ha, according to Technical, Tom Cruise is INTP.

Being so intelligent, we get a big ego, so we feel deserve beautiful romance, which could either end up like Paul Rudd in 40 Yr old Virgin, or Tom Cruise in love with Katie Holmes.

I had a bad first date last winter where I went near suicidal before Ayn Rand talked some sense into me. Now I've turned down 3 chicks in a week, and I'm talking to some bad women. I've learned to overcome that romantic idealism shit and approach it in a more stoic manner. I gotta work on ME baby.

We think we're special, so we think we deserve something special, but whatever you do, do not, I repeat, do not pull any of that romantic idealist shit, because woman are like cats, and they won't let you pet them after that. There is a such thing as a good mutual connection that works out, but only on the basis of dude having all his ducks in order and having read Ayn Rand (if needed.)

I also trip out sometimes, so I look at it like I had bad karma, so technically I was a fool, the bad guy thinks he deserves more, but I think the more you move up, eventually you'll find that flame again, given you're not a fool anymore. So I can't wait to find that fire again with what I know now, but now I know not to go crazy. Law of attraction holmes.

Any rational person in love is in a constant state of disgust over the emotions swelling inside of them, reminding them of their inherent human weakness.

Oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Oh, oh, oh
For the longest
If you said goodbye to me tonight
There would still be music left to write
What else could I do
I'm so inspired by you
That hasn't happened for the longest time

Once I thought my innocence was gone
Now I know that happiness goes on
That's where you found me
When you put your arms around me
I haven't been there for the longest time

Oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Oh, oh, oh
For the longest
I'm that voice you're hearing in the hall
And the greatest miracle of all
Is how I need you
And how you needed me too
That hasn't happened for the longest time

Maybe this won't last very long
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
Maybe I've been hoping too hard
But I've gone this far
And it's more than I hoped for

Who knows how much further we'll go on
Maybe I'll be sorry when you're gone
I'll take my chances
I forgot how nice romance is
I haven't been there for the longest time

I had second thoughts at the start
I said to myself
Hold on to your heart
Now I know the woman that you are
You're wonderful so far
And it's more than I hoped for

I don't care what consequence it brings
I have been a fool for lesser things
I want you so bad
I think you ought to know that
I intend to hold you for the longest time

This is a few years old...but as far as I'm concerned, it looks like this:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v245/NoUseFrAName/famjam.jpg

For me, being in love involves loving a family, because my idea of ideal love is that (paraphrasing Anthony DeMello:) love is like a rose...it does not give its scent only to the good people...
Love isn't about the beloved...it is about the love...
The beloved, if things are good, simply brings out the best in you, so that your best gets radiated out to anyone in your proximity, including them and others.

Being a person of principles, there is not some sweetness or kindness that is arbitrarily reserved for the beloved...she gets my best when I am at my best...my kids get my best when I am at my best.
To me, INTPs in love are just INTPs who are trying to be generally loving(eg. agape), and who have crossed paths with someone that brings out the best in them.

This. I was no less rational when I fell in love; I realized that there is more to life than reason. It sounds all cliched and shit, but I never felt more alive.

This captures it for me really. It's an uncomfortable dynamic between primitive biology and rationality.

Please tell me that beyond your white picket fences and Honda Odyssey minivan, exists a storage drive holding the most depraved collection of tentacle rape monster and scat porn that has ever been compiled.

Every other week, Robcore gets together with a group of buddies down at the neighborhood pub, dons a white robe and hood, and burns crosses. You know, to keep his family safe.

Legend has it, once every decade or so, as his family is fast asleep, Robcore sneaks off into the stillness of nightfall in search of passed out homeless men to prey upon for the ultimate cathartic zen release sensation.

He strangles them to death, in quite violent fashion, to quell the fiery rage impulses burning inside of him daily that he fights so hard to suppress, so that his family never has to bear witness to the true beast which lies beneath those crystal blue eyes and Colgate smile.

You guys are awesome, but for the record, it's a Dodge Caravan, not the Honda Odyssey, and I freely admit to flossing extremely rarely.

As for the tentacle porn, homeless men, and the atheist in my cellar...who knows...people go through mid-life crises in their 30s/40s, right? I'll be sure to let you all know, in any case. What's the point in keeping an atheist girl in my cellar to myself, anyway?

Wait a minute. Has your wife ever hit a parked car in a parking lot in the van before?

You two look extremely familiar. I was in a Goodwill or Dollar Tree (cant remember which) in Kentucky or one of those states. And when I came out, a couple that looked like you two approached me and asked me if the parked car they'd hit was mine. IIRC, the van had Wisconsin plates . I remember saying "what kind of fckin idiot hits a parked car" and my daughter's father apologized for my behavior. The man slipped him $40 to fix a $200+ damage scrape on the car, and he settled for not contacting their insurance because they seemed like a nice couple.

Tldr- cough up the $160

Robcore has dedicated his life to altruistic pursuits as a means of repentance to the community after serving twelve grueling years in San Quentin Prison after violently removing the do-not-remove-under-penalty-of-law tag from a mattress, one night in a fit of rage.

We don't have those tags across the pond, so I googled and stumbled across this explanation (https://www.livescience.com/33039-why-do-mattresses-have-do-not-remove-tags.html).

Boy, it takes an extreme degree of frugality/willingness to screw people over for profit to even consider "recycling" used mattresses in that manner.

I'd say "America!!" if my European ancestors hadn't been sleeping on straw mattresses until well into the 20th century.

My wife has backed the van into a few things, actually...but never outside of northern BC, as far as I know. $200 is less than our deductible, so definitely fair to expect the money...just not from us.

Outward disgust, inward marshmellow fluff. Playful when alone with love interest, pretend I don't know them in public while exchanging knowing glances and small smiles.

I feel really protective of the love I feel. I don't like to talk about it much with other people. It's my own little ball of warmth I want to keep safe.
