What are the signs that an ISTP female is in love?

The following are the sign that an ISTP female is in love:

  • They become willing to socialize
  • They make an effort to express their feelings

They become willing to socialize:

ISTPs are dominantly introverted individuals. This entails that they need to spend time alone to rest and get energized. 

They do not particularly enjoy social events or situations that require them to put in the effort to interact with people and make conversation. 

But when in love the ISTP female may become willing to socialize and start a conversation with a person of interest. 

She may even not mind attending a social event to impress her love interest however annoying and uncomfortable it may be for her.

They make an effort to express their feelings:

ISTPs are infamous for being emotionally detached and unresponsive. They are unable to properly process and express their emotions, as a result, they end up just ignoring how they feel altogether. 

It takes a considerable amount of time and effort for the ISTP female to get around to understanding and expressing her feelings.

However, when there is a person of interest it becomes a matter of urgency that their feelings are communicated and understood. 

ISTP females do not have the tact to use vague or subliminal methods to hint that they are in love. They are precise and straight forward and so they will put in the effort to express their feelings of love through words and actions. 

Not only will they express their feelings, but they will also put in the effort to try and understand the emotions and feelings of that special person.

They become willing to commit long-term:

ISTP females are thrill-seekers who are constantly in search of new exciting experiences. Unfortunately, this holds true for relationships as well. If the relationship becomes void in passion and excitement the ISTP is sure to leave with great ease. 

Resultantly, they have difficulties with long-term commitments. However, if they like someone they become willing to put in the effort to stick around and commit. 

They will try to compromise on their need for excitement to stay and make that special person happy.
