” As a result, ISTPs tend to start dating late (averaging around 18-22 years old).ISTPs also tend to have large time spans where they have no interest in dating after a relationship has gone south. Forcing yourself to do something you have little interest in will usually end in wasted effort.You have a long road of personal development ahead.
Because ISTPs are so hard to understand, preemptively learning about how people tick is a good way to avoid relationship hell.
The first step is to realize whether they're an introvert or an extrovert, then lay ground rules accordingly. Extroverts will see you as a project or an anti-social puzzle made for them to solve.
Tell them straight “I'm an introvert, I need time to myself sometimes.
Go have fun without me, I'll be here when you get home.” The second thing to figure out is whether your partner is a thinker or a feeler.
Feelers will often want to know what you're feeling, accuse you of being angry when you're not, or make comments like “You hate people.” A thinker will operate much in the same way you do.
You're spending time together, you're having sex and you're not yelling. If you've determined your partner is a feeler, I hope you care about them.Until you understand yourself better, you will tend to come off as cold, uncaring and distant.Even if you have a deep love for someone, you will have to try hard to figure out how to show it.If you can't express them, eventually a feeler becomes burned out trying to understand you.So much has been written about whether opposites attract or difference is the key but in real life it is all about understanding the differences, accommodating and managing them.Do you want someone to be there waiting for you when you come back from your adventures? That mentality will only set you up for disappointment or worse.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
