    It appears to be a consistent ISTJ trait, that when it comes to dating, you guys sit back.

    Other people were the ones to start talking about us before we started talking about us. So the ISTJ who I was with for over a decade and I, kind of fell into our relationship.

    You ISTJers are worse than INTPs when it comes to sitting back. How's that possible?

    I suck at initiating because it feels so forced and I'd rather things just flow more naturally. That's why I end up being so standoffish.

    Just my two cents.
    I get really turned off by people I perceive to be fickle. That is the single most irritating trait in a partner or friend.

    I suppose that's true... It's hard to be otherwise.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    For me, ppl that I have dated began with friendship first before it progressed to anything. I find it a little superficial to date the conventional way, so to speak because I have to know and trust a person to a certain level before I'd consider going out with them. Suffice to say, I'm unconventional when it comes to dating and I don't give two hoots bout dating rules.

    Also, I agree that persistence pays off. Like Patches, I find others who are fickle-minded to grate on my nerves.

    INTPs have quite a reputation, and a negative one at that lol. Perhaps ISTJs are successfully taking this advice: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."
    If Men's Health magazine was true, you would never need to buy more than one issue.

    Seconded.

    Of course, the real diamonds are the P's who are not fickle, or J's who are not so uptight.

    I agree. I've never been in a relationship before, but I think that good relationships build off of a foundation of a good friendship.

    I think (for me anyway) it was fairly easy. I don't talk to a lot of people IRL, therefore the one female I had become friends with eventually ended up as my wife. The love developed from the friendship.
    ...doesn't work or play well with others...
