Dating an ISTJ for several months who’s going through a long period of stress at work. We have a long history of several years but this is the first we have really had the opportunity to date. Several relationship stressors occurred during a stressful time for him at work and he asked for space though he acknowledged I have been a great support to him. He wanted time to just get through work before the holidays. Instead of fighting him I insisted he take more time to figure out what he needs and wants with me and with work but also told him how much I do care. In our last conversation he assured me he cared for me too and wants a long term relationship otherwise he wouldn’t even be engaging at such a stressful time. He said he didn’t find it totally necessary to have zero contact but I think was relieved to get some distance. We have had some light texting but not everyday. In this day and age of ghosting and general lack of integrity in dating I can’t help but worry if we will ever talk again. What’s the chances this is just an ISTJ in stresss/withdrawal mode who will come back to me versus a permanent breakup? So much thanks in advance!
