You being a 5 who's been in a relationship with a 7, your advice is really important to me. To my relief, my boyfriend e-mailed me back last night. But only after I e-mailed him for advice in a situation regarding one of his areas of expertise, educational sociology. As a 5w6, I don't think he could resist. ;oD I sent him a friendly e-mail back, and I'm still waiting for a reply. But I feel a bit better now. I told him that I decided to trust his judgment and planning regarding our trip, from what you've said, that's the right move. I think, as he's a man, my apparent lack of trust of his planning also felt emasculating to him, that may have been a problem.

Another problem is that when I'm scared, I seem needy to him, and classically, as a 5, that's a turn-off for him. But we both have a 6 wing in common, mine and his are very strong, I thought that'd bring us closer, what do you think?
