This is what I want to know about.
When does a person transition into a "close friend" -- do you term it that way? I want to know how you define that.
Also, do you need space? How much space?
My ISTP female friend and I seem to be connected a lot. Like, we can talk on IM all day long and then text throughout the day randomly and call each other randomly... which to me feels normal...
My ISTP guy friend from years ago and I used to talk on the phone every night. Never a romantic relationship.
In both relationships, I do most of the initiating, but it seems like they don't really mind it and in fact, maybe even appreciate that. It's more that they don't think to do it (stay connected) as much as I do. There is a difference in that they are not CLINGY relationships, but certainly HIGH COMMUNICATION. Is this so for other ISTPs too?
