    Only if you both want it to last. My mom didn't marry another LSI but I know that her relationship with my biodad (EIE) didn't last because they had different visions of the future. Neither wanted to give up what they wanted. Duality could not overcome that obstacle... They are very civil to each other now and I guess it is even a friendly, flirty thing which is weird because I thought she hated him during my whole childhood.

    Now he calls her a few times a week to check in on her and ask about my sister and me). I guess they have formed a long-term friendship. Her relationship with my ILI stepdad was literally, "until death do you part". They just worked well together. They were a "team". Both sx last which I think makes a difference. My bio dad is most likely an sx/so and my mom is not down with that "nonsense". hah

    Any relationship that has mutual respect and love can last. Human hearts change too though. People grow apart and want to go in different directions. The odds of this is greater the younger you are. If you are into another LSI then do your part and if they do theirs it should be fine.

    FTR, I love my identicals but can clearly see why they don't work out long term.

    relations of same type should be boring. no drama and no significant support. it may remind relations of colleagues
    Types examples: video bloggers, actors

    I really like (some of) my identicals but it's true that we have similar problems and similar ways of dealing with them. Too similar to be truly complementary. Don't know about romance but there might be too many emotions on the dance floor, if you see what I mean.

    Wouldn't it be something like...

    "How about dinner and a movie?"

    LSI stereotype about how bad they are at approaching relationships lol ("They tend to mechanistically approach matters of wooing and relationship-building" from a Wikisocion description).

    Of course it's just an extremely black and white stereotype in that form as in the joke. Fe of the dual helps anyway, too, but here it was about Identicals being in a relationship.

    Identical relationships are at their best when they have different fields of experience they can share and teach each other. Otherwise they can just be boring.

    Eh, when it's interest in the same (and complex) area, I've experienced a lot of disagreement with them due to the different understanding developed while both parties having strong opinions of course. It slightly erodes the relationship over time (I don't mean weeks, more like months, years) if the parties aren't careful, in my experience anyway. I don't think I ever found the relationships with them boring though this wasn't ever romantic ones, just friendship level.
