Welcome to my POF profile...
Below you will find my personal perspective "about me" followed by the results of an unbiased personality test I've recently taken. In conclusion I will end with some quotes that support my belief system.
I'd like to get to know a lady who is emotional intelligence & as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. I'm a sapiosexual so while I can act like a child and have fun, I'm not childish & require conversation that go beyond mainstream media.
I have some pretty amazing people in my life from family to mentors and I'm quite guarded about what I allow to take root in my mind. I'm not the type to believe something or settle for something because, "that's just the way things are".
I believe there is always a flip side to every coin & so many perspectives. So I attempt my best to respect everyone's opinions while maintaining my position.
I have a vision, goals and take consistent action daily towards them. The law of gestation is a universal law so it's impossible to fail if one does the right actions consistently over time. A mighty oak tree was once a little nut that held it's ground.
I'm open to change, quite flexible & spontaneous individual who's open to experiencing the fullness of life. I can be in a state of constant go-go-go or at rest, rejuvenating the mind body & spirit.
I feel that I'm ready to express my overflow of love toward a lady with the intention of making her feel safe enough to relax fully into her divine feminine energy. In doing so I think it'd be a magical journey as we unfold, grow & develop together.

INFP relationships and dating
INFP personalities are extremely loyal and faithful. They are romantic idealists who can spend an extraordinary amount of time daydreaming about the perfect relationship, where harmony and warmth are abundant. Looking for a dating partner or nurturing an existing relationship is always one of the key goals for an INFP, and this pure passion is one of their most attractive traits.
One of the main issues faced by INFPs is that they gravitate toward putting their partners on an imaginary pedestal, both when they are still dating and even later in the relationship. In other words, INFPs tend to idealize and romanticize their (sometimes long-awaited) partners, assigning them unrealistic traits. This happens because INFPs are often so focused on the ideals of romance and love that when love finally knocks on their door, it becomes difficult to separate imagination from reality.
That being said, this is not necessarily a bad thing, provided that the INFP is mature enough to recognize and address these tendencies. As their imagination is so rich and vivid, INFPs can always come up with new ways to surprise their partner and improve the relationship. This is especially useful when the INFP is dating. However, they should make sure that this does not become an obstacle or a burden. Not many types can cope with the unrelenting stream of the INFP’s ideas, especially if the relationship is still in its early stages. The INFP will do their best to help their partner grow and develop, although this may not always be appreciated.
An INFP’s love is deep and sincere, manifesting in unrelenting support and affection. People with this personality type will also do everything they can to avoid conflict, which can also contribute to the stability of the relationship. As long as their partner is willing to reciprocate and make conscious efforts to resolve disagreements calmly and peacefully, the INFP’s love will endure all tests of time. It is doubtful that someone with the INFP personality type will be jealous or overbearing—quite the opposite. An INFP is likely to trust their partner and respect their independence.
Despite their best efforts, the INFP’s opposition to any kind of criticism or conflict can cause problems in their relationships. This is especially relevant if their partner belongs to a Thinking (T) or Judging (J) type as their traits inevitably push them toward rational, impersonal comments or conclusions. The INFP may find it very difficult to examine those ideas objectively without internalizing them and thinking that something must be their fault.
INFPs are prone to reacting to stressful situations very emotionally, as if their entire value system is being threatened. They may also resort to guilt-tripping or irrational accusations. It is really important that people with this personality type develop their ability to take criticism calmly and objectively. INFPs’ imagination can easily come up with many different negative ideas and assumptions – this should be prevented at all costs.
When it comes to intimacy, INFPs are more likely to focus on satisfying the needs of their dating or long-term partner as opposed to putting their own pleasure first. People with this personality type will not rush to sexual intimacy. They will study their dating partner, get to know them really well, and only then consider moving on to the next stage of the relationship. That being said, INFPs are likely to get a lot of pleasure from intimacy as sexual acts will give them an excellent opportunity to express their love.
Recommended partners: ENFJ and ENTJ types, as their Extraversion (E) and Judging (J) traits counterbalance INFPs’ Introversion (I) and Prospecting (P) traits.

Starbucks... 21 question, straight interview style with a police check. lol...just kidding...I'd have to get to know you a bit before I plan something. Everyone is unique so I wouldn't except everyone to fit into a cookie-cutter first date.
With that said, expect an environment that will allow us to attempt to discover each other's deepest desires and what makes us love life!
