I suppose that might explain why I've never really felt "at home" and comfortable in my relationships thus far. What a breath of fresh air to realize that I am a rare personality type, and there is nothing inherently wrong with me.
April, thanks for responding! I too am very hopeful. I admit not actually reading the articles yet I also admit to never, ever having been any dating website, as I got married before they came in to being. So perhaps that sort of query is common. Any input would be most welcome. As for you in particular April, please drop me a line here from time to time to let me know how you are doing in your search. A story of how you coerced a potential date into taking the personality test, would be most interesting!
I am trying online dating for the very first time. I relate to your story, Wayne, of staying longer than advisable in a relationship. You will know when the time comes, I think. Supposedly the questionnaires provided on sites addresses personality types.
I mentioned my INFJ type in my profile, but have not had success finding a good match. I think perhaps my INFJ intensity scares people, but I also think it's what will appeal to the right person. I have to leave it, and trust. Not many people struggle with the uniqueness of personality because they naturally run in to like-minded people in their daily lives. Therefore MBTI isn't something the general population sees as relevant? They bounce ideas and perceptions off those they meet and don't have the "no one gets me" experience I have had all my life.
I totally agree, it would be phenomenal to find a dating site that matches more specifically by type. Here's my best dating advice: If you find someone you like while doing what you love doing, great! There is potential you will be compatible. After so many years being married, you might want to reconnect with yourself. Often in relationships we tend to mold ourselves and hobbies to the person we are with, and even though we may not necessarily feel miserable, we may be missing out on some activities we have passed on for the sake of the relationship.
As far as dating sites I have no experience, but I am sure that line is probably used by a lot of people I am an XYZ, looking for I strongly recommend you two to connect outside of this forum, not necessarily to become partners though if it happens it happens , but to share on successes and failures, and pump each other up!
I can tell you that I've had great success using a dating site to find a partner. The site I used did not use your Myers Briggs type, but it did have you answer questions to analyze your compatibility with a potential partner. Just one week after joining, I met an awesome guy and now, four years later, we are husband and wife! I am dating an INTJ and it seems to be working out very well.
Their logic and groundedness help balance my emotions while our curious inclination to learn and absorb the world in our own unique ways help us connect and bond with each other. Don't give up hope - it will just take a bit longer to find that connection! I was just searching to see if there was a dating site based on Myers Briggs and came across this forum.
I am 53 and an ENFP. I too am not quite ready to date but am hopeful to eventually find someone I can share adventures with. I'm a 61 yr old male ENTP and been using dating sites for 18 months.
Actually found out about MBTI reading profiles. Has a tendency to disappear for days or weeks at a time.
If disappearing episodes are restricted, grumpiness levels rise. Is hard-pressed to commit to literally anything. Shakes the foundation of your worldview in an affirming way. A lot of unresolved existential dread. Basically a walking affirmation machine. Excellent at talking to anyone.
I'll never forget my first INTJ. Working late one night in an empty museum, I found myself in some sparked banter with a confident and pretty. Notable influences include Personality Page, Type Logic, Enneagrams Institute, Ocean Moonshine, and the works of David Keirsey. The MBTI assessment tool.
