While most people tend to become passionate and somewhat irrational when they fall in love, Melancholics‘ love is more pragmatic and down-to-earth. They see their love partners as assistants; their love preferences are based on common sense and compatibility. They should be predictable; adhering to the traditions and loyal to family.

Melancholics take dating seriously –

  • They keep the good manners.
  • They will never be late.
  • Melancholic men will open doors for women.
  • Melancholic women will cook for men.
  • Moreover, they will always make concrete plans for what you will do in advance.
  • They will be protective of you and, if they are really serious, they are likely to give important gifts.

In short, these people enjoy the traditions associated with dating and a relationship.

These types like to be concrete – they like facts and are literal in everything. Their conversation is detailed and factual, hating drama, and may appear unromantic to other types. This is the reason why they are usually attracted to their own type, especially when they are willing to settle down and start the family.

Melancholics do not choose their life partners impulsively, they do it very cautiously, considering the opinions of their friends and relatives. They fear to be criticized and this is why they may need friends and relatives to approve their date before they commit to him or her. This is also one of the reasons why melancholic people enjoy to do things as a couple within a larger group of friends.

Between all four temperaments, these people can be classified as the pillars of society. They enjoy community events and outings with the group of friends. As a result, the intimacy with this kind of people develops slowly. This is convenient to the Melancholics – by dating and courting in this way they can think carefully about their plans with you and further ahead such as marriage, children etc. They can plan things in advance and it is important to them that romance goes as planned.

Sex for Melancholics is a way to forget problems and relax. It is not a playful adventure, like for sanguine people. They usually have fewer sexual experiences before marriage. In fact, Melancholics are the least sexual of four temperaments – they do still enjoy sex, but they like it when it is familiar and not in the style of a “one night stand”.

The secondary temperament plays a powerful role how Melancholics love. While generally they are very cautious and careful, Melancholic-sanguine people still seek the novelty within the limits.

Melancholic-choleric people can be pretty innovative and know how to compromise between original and conventional. They are also very ambitious and are likely to take you to places that are considered to be hard to get to.

Melancholic-phlegmatic people are confident and easy going. They love to bring people together and are likely to introduce you to their friends and you will often find dating them will be a very social experience.

Melancholics look for marriage – they need someone responsible and respectful to traditions; devoted to family life. When Melancholics find their mate, they take all the responsibilities of the partnership and are usually very faithful, which they do not find difficult.
