    I didn't know it was a romance style. But since I prefer that everything is duality, then I say duality.

    Lol, I love stuff like that. All in good fun of course.

    I disagree.

    Maybe it's more of a serious thing? Gamma thing? Me thing?

    Yeah, two introverts. The thing it's closest two is victim romance style, with the unnecessary game-playing, but it's not really a romance style at all, obviously.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    Yeah, I was gonna say, two Victims. The strip is taking a typical Infantile-Caregiver sort of sickeningly cute interaction ("You hang up first" "No, you"), and adds an unexpected twist by making it needlessly aggressive.

    I think an Aggressor might just hang up. Especially an LSI.

    no no no..

    I think you guys are interpreting it different than I.

    What I see is two people that are so sure of the way they feel about each other that they can basically threaten each other and still understand that the other is joking. Maybe that's not what the author intended, but that's the way I interpreted it. "You move on and find somebody else first" just makes my insides all warm and fuzzy. I was once told by an ex that they'd rather I hate them than be indifferent. If you show someone you hate them it shows that they matter in some way. I think she was ESI, but I'm not sure. I haven't seen her in years.

    With another ESI, we flirted by insulting each other and bossing each other around. "I hate you" became "I really like you" just as an example. Funny thing was that she would usually take it farther than I would have. A couple of times I had to make sure she was joking because it got pretty brutal.

    This is turning into a ink blot test

    I read the last panel as, the guy's hung up, and the girl is saying that to herself because she's got a sudden hit of remorse and is experiencing an "Oh shit he's gone" snap-moment. "You move on and find someone else first (so I can follow suite)" kind of thing.

    I am very depressing.
