He is not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from his own emotions and those of others. It is almost as if he could turn his feelings on and off at will; Cat should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for he could easily become too impersonal. Family relationships and attachments are not as important to him as they are to most people and Stevens often considers his friends closer to him than his blood relatives. Certainly, Stevens' sympathy and concern extends much beyond his immediate family. In his personal relationships, Cat Stevens insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as he chooses. Cat does not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
Cat Stevens feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and he has little taste for convention and tradition.
Cat has strong attachments to his past, the place where he grew up, his heritage and family traditions. In fact, Cat Stevens may be unable to step out of the habits and roles that he learned as a child. Stevens' ties to his mother are very strong and Cat also seeks nurturing and protection from his spouse and other family members.
He is assertive and confronts difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of way. Cat Stevens cannot tolerate self-pity or passivity, and he can be rather brusque with others' emotional problems. "Stop crying and do something about it" might be Stevens' motto.
Emotionally, he is very vulnerable and tends to have his feelings hurt quite easily. He is very impressionable and inclined to suffer states of melancholy or depression. Cat Stevens may choose a profession where he is allowed to be his own boss.
In a love relationship, Cat Stevens is more interested in the person's sense of humor and intelligence than in her physique. Cat likes a partner who is mentally alive and keeps him guessing and Cat Stevens becomes restless and bored with someone who never asks questions, changes or surprises him. It is very important to Cat Stevens' happiness to talk, share ideas, go places together and learn new things together. Cat Stevens needs ample social stimulation, is somewhat of a flirt, and likes to have many friends of both sexes. Stevens finds a possessive, jealous partner very stifling.
Cat is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show him places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Moreover, Cat Stevens feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
In love relationships and romance, it is important for Cat Stevens to be able to deeply respect his partner. Cat looks beyond the superficial qualities to see their inner worth (or lack thereof), before he lets himself really fall for someone. In fact, too much glamour or flashiness is something of a turn-off for him. Cat Stevens is capable of mature, lasting, loving relationships and seeks a mate who is deep, loyal, and committed. He may be drawn to someone older than him.
When it comes to love relationships, Stevens is likely to feel pulled in several directions at once. In addition to his desire for depth and security in his relationships, Cat Stevens 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 Cat acts on his spontaneous impulses without much consideration for their long-term effects on his personal life.
He is excitable, spontaneous, and easily aroused emotionally and sexually. Cat Stevens falls in love very quickly and has little self-restraint or concern for propriety when his feelings have been stirred. However, it may be difficult for Cat to sustain relationships after the first rush of excitement wanes, especially if Stevens' partner is basically a conservative person who does not like to change or experiment. Nontraditional relationships appeal to Cat Stevens, and personal freedom is or paramount importance to him.
