Questions And Answers on ISTP relationships on Reddit

The frequently discussed topics and questions on Reddit on ISTP relationships are:

  • Fellow ISTPs, what is dating like for you?
  • What do ISTPs like in a relationship?

How are ISTPs in a relationship?

“You can expect progressively decreasing attention to you as initial excitement slowly disappears. ISTP is now probably “obsessed” with you and will put a lot of effort into this relationship for now, but eventually will slowly get back to previous hobbies and interests.”

“It doesn’t mean anything else than healthy balancing to sustainable pace for ISTP. It’s important to have a bit of space in order to be comfortable in a relationship, so keep that in mind. Don’t make any (emotional) pressure in form of nagging, it will only annoy ISTP and in my case, it is a massive red flag resulting in an almost immediate break-up.”

“Strictly no drama.”

“If you want to discuss/propose/resolve anything, be straightforward and factual…. ISTPs will always say what they think exactly as they think, there is no need to look for what else it could mean, if in doubt, ask for clarification directly from your ISTP, not your friends or mom.”

“Somebody once likened the ISTP to a cat. Your cat seemingly never pays any attention to you and minds its own business, but you’ll notice that it’s typically in the same room as you. We show affection by being around. You’ll never see us around people we don’t care about. The amount of time we’re around someone is usually indicative of the amount of affection we have towards them.”

“Then what’s the point of being in a relationship with an ISTP?”

Fellow ISTPs, what is dating like for you?

“I have noticed that I am more unhappy in relationships and I actually enjoy being single and abstinent. I was wondering if that is a regular ISTP thing. Dating is fun but nowadays it just seems like an emotionally stressful hassle I don’t want to bother with because I rarely get lonely and have many hobbies to keep me busy.”

“I’d rather spend the money and time on guns and BBQ. They’re just as expensive but not irrational.”

“Apparently, ISTPs are the least likely type to get married. We are “experiencers” and like to play the field in all aspects of life — including personal relationships.”

“I have this weird thing where I usually don’t talk to girls unless they really intrigue me or seem really chill/relaxed. I get peeved by super talkative girls that can’t leave me be. I don’t date often, but when I do I tend to get bored after a couple of months and push her away then it ends.” 

“Here’s my typical trend, we meet-casually, start seeing each other……serious dating/hanging out all the time-start going to events together, I picture myself having a life with a girl then suddenly can’t see it and decide it needs to end.”

What do ISTPs like in a relationship?

“We like our partner to not text so much. If we want to talk we know how to contact you. ISTP just prefers not to small talk often. If you are contacting us with plans, that is probably better than “Hey how is your day?”.”

“Privacy! Independence!.”

“I like an independent woman that shares my values and morals but has a different personality from mine and habits/hobbies.”

“I like a girl who doesn’t need me for her to be complete but wants me. You know? Like she has her own life and I’m an addition to her life, not the completion to her life. And of course, I want her to share the same values I hold. At the very least morally and religiously. Politics are less of a concern, but I’d prefer her to at least be similar to me. I’m a right-wing conservative who only cares about facts, data, numbers, logic, etc. I don’t care about feelings or offense. Someone on the far left would not like being around me just as much as I would not like being around them. And I’d also want her to be within my religious beliefs so we have the same moral ground zero.”

“So basically independent, similar shared values, but different enough personality/life that everything with each other becomes a new adventure.”
