Though gentle and not easily provoked, Maher is tremendously stubborn and will resist any change which requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in his home life or marriage.
Bill Maher seeks security and loyalty in love relationships, is extremely devoted to his loved ones, and provides a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, Maher tends to cling and seek to keep others from changing.
A great deal of physical affection, closeness, and touching is essential to Bill's well-being, and he has a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times Bill Maher substitutes food for emotional comfort and love.
Maher depends a great deal upon other people for emotional support and he has a large "family" of friends that care about him and treat him as kin. The women in Bill's life are particularly important to him, and his relationships with them powerfully influence his sense of security and happiness. Bill Maher may be overly dependent and unsure of himself without a close partner.

It is relatively easy for Bill Maher to attract companionship and affection, and there will never be a lack of such relationships in his life. Children are very important to Maher also.
Bill Maher tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if he perceives a threat to his family or home or personal safety, he can be quite aggressive. Sometimes Bill feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. Bill Maher also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent, that he is not entirely conscious of. It is good for Maher to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics.

He is easygoing, agreeable, and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin again on a positive note. He enjoys making others comfortable and happy, and he overdoes sometimes his generosity. Bill Maher often feels that "everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", and so becomes lazy and lackadaisical.
Although Maher gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), he also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure which enables Bill Maher to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies. This side of his is described below.
There is another side to Bill Maher as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Maher can be hard to get close to. Subconsciously he may feel that too much closeness in his relationships will interfere with doing what he needs to do and being his own person, so Bill Maher puts up subtle walls and distance himself when someone begins to want more of him than he can comfortably give. However, Maher may cut off sources of emotional nourishment and support that way, and end up feeling alone and lonely. Bill Maher might even develop digestive problems. Overcoming his fears of intimacy, while at the same time affirming and acting on his autonomous needs, is the challenge here.
In addition to Bill's rather introverted, serious, or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Bill Maher craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Maher rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance one another. His more free and unpredictable side will now be described.
Bill Maher craves excitement, change, and discovery, and cannot tolerate a routine or lifestyle that offers little in the way of surprise or challenge. Excitable, spontaneous, and enthusiastic about anything new, he may be perceived by others as being too impulsive, especially in personal relationships. It is not easy for Bill Maher to make or keep commitments, since he does not know how he will be feeling from one day to the next. Emotional freedom is very important to Maher. His domestic life can be very unstable - but Maher likes it that way.
Although Bill Maher was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he has a diametrically opposed tendency as well: The urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow Bill's fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
Emotionally he is very sensitive, dreamy, gentle, and easily influenced. If he is with harmonious people and in congenial surroundings, Bill Maher flourishes, but negative people or dissonant energies very quickly bring him down. His emotional boundaries tend to be very loose and permeable. Bill Maher feels what others feel, and physically he is very open and impressionable. Standing up for himself, saying no when he wants to, and recognizing and respecting others' limits and boundaries are important lessons for Bill Maher to learn. Maher should beware of a tendency to martyr himself out of pity for someone else's problems.
He enjoys emotional intensity and is attracted to the mysterious, the unknown, and to dangerous or challenging experiences which draw on all of his inner resources. He is able to handle an emotional crisis very well, and he is interested in the deep roots of emotional problems and how to cure them. Bill Maher insists on bringing feelings between people out into the open, for he wants real closeness and intimacy in his relationships, without barriers or secrets.
He is easily influenced by his environment and tends to get depressed when things do not go the way he expected. Relationships are not easy for Bill Maher; he could be a recluse, avoiding most contact with others.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Bill Maher gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Bill Maher may become romantically involved with someone because they need love and he wants to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.

Bill Maher loves romance and wishes that the honeymoon phase of his love relationships would last forever! Maher needs dramatic romantic gestures and displays of affection from his partner, and he wants to feel very, very special, like a royalty, to his beloved. Bill Maher also has an artistic flair and he enjoys creating art or beauty in some form.
Money is apt to be an issue in Maher's life, not because he does not have it but because he cannot or will not hold on to it. Bill Maher has a free-handed, generous, open attitude and would prefer to spend and enjoy and partake in the pleasures of the moment rather than save, discipline himself, or budget. At his worst, Bill Maher wants an easy ride, and friends will often let Bill freeload because he is such an agreeable, friendly, pleasant sort. Or, he could let other people take advantage of his hospitality and tolerance.
Maher also avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. Bill Maher just want to have a good time.
He is intensely amorous and attractive to the opposite sex, and is not inclined to friendly platonic relationships. There is much tension in his love relationships - often because Bill Maher puts his desires ahead of his partner's, and is impatient about having his love needs satisfied. The whole arena of love relationships, romance, and sex is endlessly fascinating for Bill Maher and he is not happy without a love partner. Maher can "burn himself out" by pouring so much of his energy into romance.
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 Maher 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 Maher is to being left out or unappreciated.
He is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy himself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Bill Maher rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations in his early life, Bill is very cautious about becoming involved in close relationships and sharing his feelings. Though Maher craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for him. He may become romantically involved with people who do not value him or treat him well. Bill Maher needs to learn to love and value himself before he will find happiness in love.
Sensitive and compassionate, Maher tends to be the "giver" in any relationship. Bill has high ideals and a refined attitude towards love relationships, seeking to relate in ways that are beyond ego needs and selfishness. Bill is attracted to people with artistic or mystical inclinations.
It is easy for Bill Maher to show others the love he feels for them and he talks freely to them about his feelings. Bill likes nice surroundings and wants to beautify his environment as quickly as possible, once he has come up with an idea to do so.
Others may get the impression that Bill Maher considers personal relationships not very important, as he may pretend to have feelings for someone when he really does not. Bill Maher would make a very good actor playing the part of a lover.
