He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, Dinesh D'Souza rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often D'Souza's love for someone is expressed by his wish to help him, do something tangible to benefit him or serve him in some way.
It is also difficult for him to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for he often feels that he does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". D'Souza may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes Dinesh difficult to live with. Dinesh D'Souza needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with himself.
He is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for his belongings give Dinesh D'Souza a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or things with sentimental value from Dinesh's past are especially dear to him.
Dinesh D'Souza may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of his immediate circle.
D'Souza 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 Dinesh D'Souza puts up subtle walls and distance himself when someone begins to want more of him than he can comfortably give. However, D'Souza may cut off sources of emotional nourishment and support that way, and end up feeling alone and lonely. Dinesh D'Souza 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.
His emotions are very intense, but often hidden. Like a volcano, one minute Dinesh D'Souza seems quite peaceful and the next, he is exploding with great force and unexpected fury. The intensity of his reactions often surprises even him. Dinesh has tremendous zeal and tends to be an emotional fanatic about things he cares about. His feelings and desires can be so compelling that he does things against his better judgment and reason. D'Souza can also be very manipulative, in a subtle way. His personal relationships are deeply emotional, passionate and often stormy and painful as well.
His love feelings and desires are easily aroused but he may find it difficult to sustain his romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Dinesh D'Souza enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and he does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Dinesh wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Dinesh is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show D'Souza places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Also, Dinesh D'Souza feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with 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.
