    It's very important to have common activities, but there's sooo many fun things to do out there...if you have none obviously in common you can always try new things and see what you like.

    With my bf I play volleyball and soccer and we like watching some of the same tv shows and movies. We both like hiking and camping and stuff like that. There's probably other things that we don't do often,too. Nothing particularly fancy though, by any means. Most of our time "together" is us each doing our own thing in the same room, typical of introverts.

    Basically doing stuff you both enjoy, either together or separately, within the presence of each other.

    I don't think it's necessary for that person to adopt my interests (bonus points) as long as they are supportive of them. It's more important that the other person is open to try them. There's nothing worse than someone who rains on your enthusiasm over something you want to try or do by being scared or "I don't know about that" kind of mentality.

    Personally, I like to see my SO's enraptured in their own passions. It makes me feel good to watch them enjoy themselves and get excited over what they like - even if it's something I am not that excited about.

    I think you're placing way too much importance on the "do things together" thing. While doing things together is cool. If we don't do things together, it's also cool, as long as you don't got pulling the "why don't we ever do things together, I feel left out and neglected" routine, when I do my thing, I wouldn't mind if you never shared any of my interests with me.

    Common interests could be as simple as watching an entertaining movie together. Surely you guys can overlap there. Or cooking together! I don't think it'll be that difficult to find a solution. And I thought INFJs were often into tests of physical endurance. The ones I know are into either rock climbing, boxing, or sailing and these are all ISTP-friendly pursuits.

    I have interests that I pursue by myself and so does he, which isn't a problem for me, but it's a problem for him these days. I think when men get older, their need for emotional closeness with their SO increases greatly, probably due to lower testosterone levels. Even strong T-types get this way later in life. It's weird.

    Good point.... we do like watching movies together.
    We used to go sailing years ago. That would be a good activity to start up again. Thanks.

    I have noticed that martial and combat sports are very appealing to ISTP males, but I don't know how many women are willing to have such shared activity with their ISTP's. And it's not even romantic, just sweaty and the danger of getting injuries is quite high....

    Someone already suggested cooking... I like cooking with a romantic interest.

    And uh. I like *doing* things with him too. Going on a hike or trip or camping or even grocery shopping for that cooking we're planning later. Doesn't really matter what it is as long as we're doing it together and working as a team.

    An ISTP male wanted a taser... When the package arrived he got very excited and asked his wife to "test it" on him to make sure it works.

    She zapped him in the nutz'



    Which made her very happy. She enjoyed participating in the shared activity very much.
