I have a fun story. I was recently in a brief relationship with an INTP who I have known for nearly 10 years. The first 2 years, we were intimately involved. The later 6, we occasionally exchanged fantastic emails. This last year, we are in the same locale again and hang out or email constantly. We were quite recently involved physically for a just a few weeks, but in true INTP fashion, he realized there was no emotion in it for him and ended that aspect of the relationship. And here we find ourselves exploring the possibility of getting an apartment together. In some ways, this seems like the best idea ever. We are such good friends and both find it difficult to tolerate being around, much less living with, other people for very long. We like the same things, both like a lot of space...it could be great. On the other hand, it could be the worst idea ever. I obviously have much more emotional attachment than he does. Living together could drive either or both of us crazy. And how could I ever stomach him being with another woman in our home? (Unlikely to happen, but not impossible.) Worse, would I be able to involve myself in another relationship if I'm living with him? Thoughts? PS: I am especially looking for reasons why this is a great idea, so that I can further delude myself into acquiescence. Give it your best. PPS: Share stories of good/bad cohabit decisions?
