    Are you sure you're an INTP?

    What's the MBTI type of the person you're with? What do you mean when you say, "don't communicate thoroughly?"

    It usually takes agonizing effort to figure out what's actually bothering most women (if something is even bothering them), as what they say means nothing (things like complaining about lack of you "expressing your feelings," then losing interest when you do, as they now think you're a bitch and not a man). Once you've figured out what they have a problem with (and how serious it is), then you can see if there's anything you can do about it.

    As far as the things women (and people in general) complain about, I think there isn't much that can be done about them. That is, they either like you, or they'll never stop complaining. Past that, it's about self-improvement, getting better in general, and becoming more of who you want to be.

    How has your companion expressed their thoughts in terms of you being selfish and uncaring? Do you think you're are difficult to communicate with and are selfish and uncaring?

    My companion doesn't understand INTP's which makes my woes worse. Sometimes I feel I should bail out and live alone....?
    Bailing out and living alone is certainly an option, however you might consider actually communicating with your partner, which is something healthy minded INTP's can be quite good at.

    This is key.

    This translates to me as her saying she needs more attention. Think of a scenario where she would feel this way.
