They become passionate

INTP men are often seen as logical and practical people. So when it comes to matters of the heart and emotions they score really low points. People who do not know the INTP man may think he is cold and detached.

However, this changes when they are in love. They become passionate almost overnight. INTPs begin to feel a sense of passion for the ones they love, especially when they fall deeply for someone.

They will spend hours thinking about all the things they would want to do for that person. While the INTP does not express this openly, it will become evident in the things they begin to do for a person.

They become Romantic

Most INTPs are scientists or inventors who may not express their hearts to those around them. It may be far-fetched to even think that they can be romantic but this tends to change when they love someone.

They put their genius to work and begin to research ways to win the heart of the woman they love. They will buy flowers, dinner and show off their intelligence to that person.

They become interested in the interests of their loved ones.

When in love the INTP man will take time to get to know and understand the interests of their partner. 

They will spend time getting to know those interests in greater detail even if they are outside their scope of interest. They will take to researching and looking up that person’s interests online so that they may seem knowledgeable when the topics come up later.

This is better than interrogating that person and have an awkward conversation.

The text and call back in good time.

INTPs are introverts and so they are naturally lazy at responding to messages and picking up calls. They have very little desire for social interactions and social media. 

It could take them days and hours to respond to messages or call people back. This is because they spend a great deal of time composing a detailed answer and end up not responding altogether.

 With a special someone, however, the INTP male will respond on time and call back to capture the interest of that person.

They make an effort to socialize.

For an INTP man, alone time is their happy hour. But they become willing to leave their comfort zone to go meet that special someone in even the most crowded places. 

They will even be willing to invite that person into their personal space. They will not view this as an intrusion even if that person shows up unannounced.
