ENFP mate

A warm, considerate, passionate and deeply committed partner who
makes the relationship a positive place to be.

A quick summary of the ENFP as a mate

LOVE IS: Finding someone with whom they can share a faithful, loyal and affectionate attachment.

FALLS IN LOVE: Imaginatively. ENFPs can feel love and affection that is almost childlike in its purity.

FALLS OUT OF LOVE: Will be slow to leave a relationship into which they have put so much energy. But when they fall out of love, they rebound quickly.

INTIMACY: Creative playful and affectionate lovers who whole-heartedly embrace the opportunity for closeness with their mates.

COMMITMENT: Seeks a lifelong, committed relationship. ENFPs approach their intimate relationships quite seriously.

MOST SATISFIED WITH: A partner who supports their creativity and caring, and who expresses appreciation for their unique qualities openly and often.

To win the heart of an ENFP, join them on fun, active dates, stimulate their playful imagination, or ask them thought-provoking questions.

The ENFP is warm, encouraging and emotionally engaged. ENFPs connect with others by sharing their feelings and experiences. They are expressive with their mates and want their mates to share openly with them. ENFPs place great importance on personal development. ENFPs can be guarded when it comes to their deepest feelings. When conflict arises, the ENFP can sometimes withdraw, therefore ENFPs need a supportive partner to help them express any hurt feelings.

PJ is a male ENFP

He never lacks for female companionship. Women seek him out because he's cheerful and believes in them. His tendency has been to have very intense relationships which burn out quickly.
      He's decided that it's probably best to date casually to avoid flash-in-the-pan romances. PJ figures he'll eventually settle down and have a family but, for now, he enjoys the experience of femininity in many different forms.

Arianna is a female ENFP

She has always found that men are attracted to her. She has had quite a few serious romances. As soon as she realizes that they are both attracted to each other, Arianna has whole-heartedly thrown herself into the relationship, later discovering that they aren't suited to each other at all. Then she forced herself to slow down and take time to get to know the other person. She's been dating her current boyfriend for two years. He has been a steadying influence on her.

  • For ENFPs, loving is an almost constant state. They are generally involved or in love with someone or something new. ENFPs may have originated the quotation 'All the world loves a lover.' When falling in love, they explore all the new possibilities in the relationship, and the new person is studied in every way. The ENFP tends to idealise his or her current relationship and will often say that their current one is 'the best ever.'
          This same boundless affection can be showered upon friends, co-workers, and others. People often feel unconditionally loved by ENFPs. ENFPs are delightful, enthusiastic partners who are young in spirit; there is rarely a dull moment with them ...
  • They readily note their partner's best aspects. They may overlook obvious details and facts about their partners that might cause other types to be more cautious. Or they may undercommit, believing that there may be a better love 'just around the corner.' Therefore, ENFPs may be seen as fickle in their relationships as they search for the 'right one.'
           When ENFPs are scorned, they overgeneralise about their partners' worst faults. But because ENFPs thrive on new possibilities, when they fall out of love, they rebound quickly.
