2. “When it comes to friends, I look for people that are consistent, loyal, and share some of my values. As far as a romantic partner, I want to know the person before we pursue something beyond a friendship. I enjoy someone who can make me laugh but also discuss more serious matters when need be.”

3. “Just come out and tell me what you are looking for. I appreciate the straightforwardness.”

7. “Be blunt, but not forceful. We can be a little dense when it comes to romance so if you want to go on a date with us, please don’t ask us to ‘hang out.’ Just call it a date so we know what we’re getting into.”

8. “I am attracted to people who are friendly and upbeat. Crassness and swearing is a turn-off though. I keep things clean and I’m looking for a partner who does the same.”

9. “Take the initiative with us and set a concrete date and time. And then don’t be late! Punctuality is important to ISTJs as we see it as a sign of respect.”

10. “Please don’t play games – that is confusing and a turn-off. Just be honest, genuine and polite. And please respect the fact that I like to plan things ahead of time. Dating is stressful enough as it is without having plans constantly changing!” Thought Catalog Logo Mark
