Dating late bloomer
As long as you check the major boxes, a Rational really won't care (or at least will tolerate) that you turn up half an hour late or leave your dirty clothes on the floor.
Unlike Idealists who often take up the romantic task of seeking the "love of their life," Rationals understand that no one has one true love, and that compromise goes a long way towards making a relationship work.

Long story short: if you can't perform intellectual backflips and debate a whole range of castles-in-the-sky ideas, then you probably won't get very far with a Rational. Rationals clash with every other temperament type in the way they communicate their feelings.In fact, you'll often find them theorizing about the status of the relationship, and how they can make the necessary adjustments to keep the relationship happy and healthy.If any flaw is detected, the Rational will fix it or they will delete your phone number. They'll simply weigh you up against whatever it is they need from a relationship - intellectual stimulation, fidelity, independence, humor - and they won't waste time dating you if they don't see a future together.To an NT personality, the good stuff will always outweigh the little frustrations here and there.That's the logical way to approach relationship decisions. At the end of the day, once we have found a worthy partner, we will move forward with confidence and gusto.
