Dorothy Dandridge responds very strongly to the emotional tone and atmosphere around her, and can be dominated by her fluctuating and unpredictable moods.

Dorothy Dandridge often feels that she must do something or be something other than what she is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. She is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though she may appear cool or distant, Dandridge actually cares very much about being included. Because she is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Dorothy Dandridge to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises she may endure once she lets others really know her in an intimate, personal way. Her reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Dorothy Dandridge becomes very attached to the few people she considers "real friends".

In love relationships, Dorothy Dandridge seeks companionship and friendship with someone who is fun loving, playful and open to adventure and new experiences. She enjoys traveling together, meeting new people and making new friends. Honeymooning in a distant location appeals to Dorothy, and she is also attracted to foreigners or people with diametrically different backgrounds than her own. Dorothy Dandridge supports her partner in taking risks and making positive changes, rather than preserving the status quo. She also very much wants a partner who will encourage her own aspirations and dreams. It is very important to Dorothy that she have a spiritual or intellectual rapport with her love partner, perhaps more important than the emotional/physical aspect. Dorothy Dandridge is not especially sentimental and her love partner may feel that she is too casual and not serious or romantic enough.

Her love feelings are easily aroused and her romantic relationships begin with a sudden electric attraction, but they often end abruptly, and Dandridge may be in and out of love relationships - especially in her younger years. Dorothy Dandridge craves emotional excitement and needs to feel spontaneous and free, so she may avoid making firm personal commitments. Unusual or nontraditional forms of love and relationships appeal to Dandridge, and she is attracted to unique, creative or unstable people.
She is prone to getting 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 Dorothy Dandridge 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, Dandridge may be tempted to use her 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 her intentions are basically good, Dorothy Dandridge will find that her closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of her character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
