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; Donald 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 Sutherland often considers his friends closer to him than his blood relatives. Certainly, Sutherland's sympathy and concern extends much beyond his immediate family. In his personal relationships, Donald Sutherland insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as he chooses.

His emotional generosity and lack of pettiness is well known among his circle of friends, and people often seek Donald out for help, sympathy or advice. Donald Sutherland is always willing to overlook others' faults, and he sometimes overdoes his charitableness.
Highly sensitive and rather easily taken in, Donald Sutherland needs to beware of deceiving himself and allowing others to take advantage of his impressionability or gentleness. Daydreaming, fantasizing, or other forms of imaginative, escapist behavior (such as watching television excessively or living his life through romance novels) could be something of an addiction for Sutherland.

Being openly affectionate and trusting often does not seem safe to Donald. He may feel his love will not be appreciated or reciprocated. Donald Sutherland may get involved in secret love relationships or fall in love with a person who is quite unavailable to him. Love and sacrifice often seem to go hand in hand for Donald Sutherland - having to give something up to be with the one he loves, or having to relinquish some person or some aspect of an important love relationship.
Feelings of loneliness, extreme shyness and/or the fear of rejection plague Donald Sutherland and may well inhibit him from expressing warmth and affection in an open way. Denying himself pleasure, comfort, and "nice things" due to feelings of unworthiness can also limit the joy Donald allows himself. Heartache and a loss of love in his life - perhaps while quite young - will serve to either close his heart to love or cause him to deeply cherish the friends and love he receives from others. The saying that "true love is hard to find" is certainly true for Donald Sutherland, but he will value it tremendously when it does come into his life.
The feeling that "there is not enough for me" may cause him to be very frugal and stingy with money as well.
