Even-tempered and peace loving, he is not easily ruffled and is rarely given to emotional displays.

A great deal of physical affection, closeness and touching is crucial to Bill's well-being, and he has a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times Bill Bixby substitutes food for emotional comfort and love.

Bill Bixby may be overly dependent and unsure of himself without a close partner.
Bill Bixby often feels that he must do something or be something other than what he is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. He is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though he may appear cool or distant, Bixby actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Bill Bixby to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises he may endure once he lets others really know him in an intimate, personal way. His reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Bill Bixby becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Bixby can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if he views them as times to nourish himself and develop his own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.

He is open and unconventional in his attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. He enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Bill Bixby values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Bill desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Bixby, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Bill Bixby appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.

Bill Bixby is extremely amorous and it is difficult for him to go without romantic relationships for very long.

Bill's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Bill Bixby is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times he is far more contained as described here. Because he is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Bixby is to being left out or unappreciated.
Intimacy does not come easily to Bill Bixby and he may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, Bixby does not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to break down all of his barriers and defenses. He may feel that he has few friends or people that really care about him. Bill Bixby needs to learn to value and love himself more and to express his appreciation for others more openly.
When it comes to love relationships, Bixby is likely to feel pulled in several directions at once. In addition to his desire for depth and security in his relationships, Bill Bixby has an impulsive side and a need for a lot of variety and excitement, as discussed in the following paragraphs. These urges do not have to conflict, but they certainly can, especially if Bill acts on his spontaneous impulses without much consideration for their long-term effects on his personal life.
He needs a lot of emotional and romantic stimulation, and may not be very interested in having just one mate or love partner. Variety, excitement, spontaneity, and freedom are quite important to Bill, and "settling down" is not that appealing. Bill Bixby tends to surround himself with unusual, creative, unconventional people that keep his life lively. Music or dancing or both play an important part in Bixby's life.
He is prone to get involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Bill Bixby to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Bixby may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Bill Bixby will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of his (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep showing their faces. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
