    Default Behaviors of good ISTP boyfriends/husbands?

    I don't know if this is a weird question, but here goes anyway:

    How does a good/healthy/happy ISTP boyfriend/husband behave toward his girlfriend/wife? In private? In public? I'm very interested in the 'in public' behavior.

    I don't think an answer like, 'we'd be just like any other 'good' boyfriend' would work, because
    well, ISTPs don't think like NFs. For example, a good ENFP boyfriend might write tons of gushy emails, but I don't think an ISTP would even if he was 'in love'. But then I might be wrong. Let me know.

    Just honest and real answers please. Thanks.

    In public? Spontaneous, gregarious and I like to have fun. Keep it light.

    And say, in party situations? Do you act as a couple or almost like separate individuals? To give an NF-NF couple example in a party, it would be very clear to others through body language, etc. that they were obviously 'together'.

    Because it makes them feel good? Warm, loved, fuzzy?

    well, mine is not technically my boyfriend... we've been seeing each other for only a month now... but the way he treated me in party situations is one of the reasons that i like him!

    i love to flit around and meet new people, and he seemed to be good with this. we mostly just do our own thing... but still keep an eye out for one another. he won't cling to me cause he is socially stable, but i never feel abandoned or like he doesn't want to be with me either. it's perfect.

    Separate individuals... Funniest experience of a date at a party.

    My girlfriend was flitting about having a good time and took her top off.

    Then one of her friends came outside where I was hanging with some dudes, got really upset with me and said, "You should make her stop. She's had too much to drink."

    "No I shouldn't...leave her alone, she's having a great time."

    By the time I was ready to come back indoors and chill...she was passed
    out under the pool table. So I took her for a drag.
