...Ahoy?

Well, I've never been one for duplicate thread titles and I already saw ones called "Hello", "Hi", and "Greetings", so here we are. Ahoy!

I get a bit apprehensive talking about myself, mostly because my identity tends to be very malleable, so the things I claim about myself might end up being untrue days/weeks/months later. But let's see how this goes.

I'm a 16-year-old female INTP who found out about the typology shtick somewhere between... 3 and 4 years ago? This was pretty novel/relieving/enlightening for me because for the longest time I was convinced something was wrong with me (mixture of being "different" and other people telling me I was "weird"). Maybe there is something amiss in my noggin but at least some of the things I thought were issues weren't. I was a bit dubious about being an INTP, so I went and did some more research that pretty much confirmed it for me and wound up stumbling upon a blog site/forum called intpexperience.

I was a fairly active member there for a while and made a number of friends, (my username was the same as this one, if anyone wants to snoop. I've nothing to hide except... cringe-worthiness...?) but then the forum was overrun by spambots and I don't think it was ever moderated. Since then, I've lost track of all those people except one, whom I've been continuing to chat with via email. He serves as an excellent conversational partner for wacky tangents, new ideas, strange videos, and more (sounds like an advertisement. Please don't stalk this fellow.)

So what am I doing here? For quite some time (don't ask exactly how long. My sense of time is horrendous, but I guess that's okay since time is an illusion that arises from change anyways...) I simply let typology lie and tried to explore hobbies and connect with the people around me. That's worked out... alright for me; something must have changed because I found it nigh-impossible to talk to people in middle school but nowadays I have... more than one friend.

In spite of this friendliness, I've been growing somewhat lonely of late and I came to realize that I miss the fun/intellectual/speculative/unrestricted conversations I used to have. So here I am.

Hmm. I now recall reading a post a few days ago where a guy was setting up a format for introductions and I don't think I've been following it. So it goes. I guess it's never too late, though, and I remember some things about location, pets, and SOs. I live in the US of A, land of coca cola and sometimes war.

My hobbies are music, writing, D&D, and, most importantly, having prolonged staring contests with walls while I think about things that probably have no ultimate significance.

I have a pretty snazzy orange cat that would probably be sociopathic by human standards but is just fine by cat standards. My (first) boyfriend is probably not going to last. He's an ESTJ and that's all fine and dandy (It's not like I vet based on MBTI. Maybe I should, though. Input?), but regardless of type there's no denying that he and I don't have much of anything to talk about. He's interested in things that seem so boring to me that I barely notice them on my own (food details, dates, how the day went, etc.) and he never has anything to say about the things I'm interested in... Plenty of relationships work fine with a surface-level connection and lots of loyalty and support but that's simply not what I want in life. I have an INTJ friend whom I can talk about anything and everything with, who has the craziest ideas, and with whom no topic is off limits, and I think that's more my speed when it comes to any sort of close interpersonal relationship, romantic or otherwise.

I guess that's about it. Feel free to ask me anything and I'll probably answer unless I don't know the answer or the question is incredibly disturbing.

Yo yo. Welcome to the forum and don't be discouraged by the overwhelming cynicism

If you don't think your relationship with your bf will last, you might consider dumping him nicely. He might be much more invested than you and have deep feelings. It would be cruel to lead him on

Animekitty - I notice you're an ISFP. Why are you here? <---- That sounds accusatory. I'm not accusatory; I'm curious. What brought you to this forum, if you don't mind my asking?

Minuend - I mean, I would agree if I weren't in high school. I've known nobody who maintained a relationship post-graduation. Actually, it's fine currently, because I have friends whom I enjoy talking with; I'm just saying that people tend to slowly lose friends outside of their primary partner as they grow older. Honestly, I don't think most people think about stuff like this, but most relationships aren't going to end in lifelong partnership and while they can be enjoyable it's always weird to remember they have an expiration date.

Kinda like life, I guess.

What's with the cat theme around here?

I think it’s happens when our body is not as in sinc with out internal reactions, so how we are externally tends to be a bit more malleable, as you put it. I was nicknamed the gemeni once because of this. People never know when I’m kidding, even though it seems completely obvious to me.
