I appreciate all of the advice I've been given here, so far. And you may be right, B.O., a lot of these things are things I already know, but as a 7w6, who can only really see things as a 7w6, I know, but I don't really KNOW, you know? ;oD It'd be interesting to read what other 5s think of my behaviour, I understand why fives are the way they are (all logical, not trusting their instincts, taking a long time to process feelings, etc.) in an intellectual sense, but not in an instinctual one, and, as a 7, if I don't understand something instinctively, I don't really understand it. I appreciate what Pork, Flower Pagan and Defenestrate have been able to share. I guess I just have to let my 5w6 boyfriend work out his feelings before he contacts me again. I'm still worried.

Here's a question for the 5s here; my boyfriend told me once why he doesn't like me to tell other people things about him. This is what he said, 'People will misuse information, the world may take advantage of you.' What does this mean to you, and why can't I, as a 7, understand it? My boundless optimism?
