last night i was at a party and met a guy i am completely sure is enfj. we made quick friends. he was a really 'lyrical' guy, in that he said things in ways that really put people out(showing genuine interest and not being overlymasculine), especially some of my friends. i didn't really mind. he seemed interested in some of the same things as I am. it is hard to explain, but he had a foppish manner, was well-spoken, and something of a sensitive-male stereotype. he really wanted to talk about imperial china and buddhism and his special connection to buddhism. but not in a way that was strange or disrespectful to the religion, but in a way that suggested genuine fascination. he seemed like someone who very much could study history and be very excited about artifacts. he also seemed gay, and i think that put people out quite a bit. anyway, the whole time he was talking to me was strange because he kept doing strange things. like if i shifted body position, he would shift body position, and he always tried to be standing directly in front of me when speaking. i think it made him nervous that i wasn't making a lot of eye contact or something. his eyes were kindly but very melacholy in that he looked like a person whom a gaze could kill.
he said some unexpected things for such a short lived friendship-
i was telling him all about road biking and as he put it 'the anatomy' of different bikes. he said he thought it was really great that i'd found my niche in life and that he hasn't and wanted to. i suppose i am generally very open to other people and don't mind them sharing their life like that, but i can see how a majority of people would definitely be put out by someone that forward with their pscyhe and problems.
anyway. he seems like a cool guy, and forwhatever reason he wants to be my friend. i think? he could want something else.
thought i'd share. i'm going to take a good break from this forum. i have a difficult exam approaching and i've been a little too invested lately. you folks keep it real.
