She is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others her feelings. Though she may love and care for someone a great deal, Aaliyah rarely expresses her feelings openly and freely. Very often Haughton's love for someone is expressed by her wish to help her, do something tangible to benefit her or serve her in some way.
It is also difficult for her to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for she often feels that she does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". Haughton may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than she feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes Aaliyah difficult to live with. Aaliyah needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with herself.
She is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes her feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Aaliyah cannot hide her instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and she does not make any pretenses about her personal sympathies or antipathies.
Aaliyah has a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets her into trouble, as Aaliyah takes risks on impulse or whim.
In love relationships, Aaliyah seeks companionship and friendship with someone who is fun loving, playful and open to adventure and new experiences. She enjoys traveling together, meeting new people and making new friends. Honeymooning in a distant location appeals to Aaliyah, and she is also attracted to foreigners or people with diametrically different backgrounds than her own. Aaliyah supports her partner in taking risks and making positive changes, rather than preserving the status quo. She also very much wants a partner who will encourage her own aspirations and dreams. It is very important to Aaliyah that she have a spiritual or intellectual rapport with her love partner, perhaps more important than the emotional/physical aspect. Aaliyah is not especially sentimental and her love partner may feel that she is too casual and not serious or romantic enough.
Haughton is a very personable, affectionate, loving friend and will always have many people in her relationships that love and cherish her. Aaliyah prefers being with others rather than on her own, and she feels very incomplete without a special person in her life to share her love with. Being half of a close, loving relationship is very important to Aaliyah.
Aaliyah is a peacemaker, the one who adapts, harmonizes, and makes concessions for the sake of the relationship. Her charm and agreeableness makes Aaliyah very popular.
Aaliyah appreciates beautiful surroundings and congenial company, and though she enjoys helping people, Aaliyah will rarely put herself out too much in the process. She is good-humored and generous at heart but inclined to be lazy.
Aaliyah's pleasure-loving nature and her emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing her affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Aaliyah is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times she is far more contained as described here. Because she is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Haughton is to being left out or unappreciated.
She is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy herself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Aaliyah rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in her early life, Aaliyah is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing her feelings. Though Haughton craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for her. She may become romantically involved with people who do not value her or treat her well. Aaliyah needs to learn to love and value herself before she finds happiness in love.
Aaliyah has a very erotic and sexual nature and may often find herself drawn to another person by a kind of inner compulsion. Haughton could become quite obsessed by someone and she has a tendency to control and manipulate her relationships.
