In my own experience, INFP-ENFJ romantic relationships do not last. I can't speak for others. But for me, it's a disaster. A relationship with an ENFJ is nearly perfect for an INFP. There is only one thing I had to get used to especially for an ENFJ with particularly strong Fe. They offer. An INFP's relationship with a fellow INFP makes for a good match types (INFP, ENFP, INFJ, ENFJ) and 'iNtuitive Thinking' types (INTP, ENTP.
Friends and family need to alert and shake them from their fantasies, and get them back to the real world. Talking about their weaknesses, INFPs are very sensitive and less likely to bear criticism. Another thing about INFPs is that, they may get uncomfortable in social encounters.
They need some time and space to adjust themselves to foreign elements, be it people, places, or things. They are ready for change, and would appreciate it, if their partner has some extrovertish traits, which would enhance their social life.

[ENFJ] Longterm INFP-ENFJ relationships
INFPs' tendency to be idealistic and romantically-minded may cause them to fantasize frequently about a "more perfect" relationship or situation. They may also romanticize their mates into having qualities which they do not actually possess.
Most INFPs have a problem with reconciling their highly idealistic and romantic views of life with the reality of their own lives, and so they are constantly somewhat unsettled with themselves and with their close personal relationships.
However, the INFP's deeply-felt, sincere love for their mates and their intense dislike of conflict keeps the INFP loyal to their relationships, in spite of their troubles achieving peace of mind. Unlike other types who tend to hold their mates up on a pedastal, the INFP's tendency to do so does not really turn into a negative thing in the relationship. INFPs hold tightly to their ideals, and work hard at constantly seeing their mates up on that pedastal.
The frequent INFP result is a strongly affirming, proud and affectionate attitude towards their mates which stands the test of time. INFPs are not naturally interested in administrative matters such as bill-paying and house-cleaning, but they can be very good at performing these tasks when they must. They can be really good money managers when they apply themselves. Sexually, the INFP is likely to be initially slow to open up to their mates.
Once their trust has been earned, the INFP will view sexual intimacy as an opportunity for expressing their deep-seated love and affection.
