Open and generous, Edward Abbey enjoys a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and he thrives on sociability and fellowship. He is adventurous, playful, freedom loving, and always ready for a good time.

Edward desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him.

Edward Abbey tends to be attracted to people who are not quite what they seem. Gullible, romantic and rather easily seduced, Edward frequently falls in love with an image in his own mind, which he then projects onto the object of his affections, only to discover later that this person never really had the lovely qualities he endowed her with. Edward Abbey also confuses love relationships with pity, sacrifice, or misplaced notions of "selfishness", thereby setting himself up to be taken advantage of. He is capable of great devotion to a spiritual cause, for he is actually seeking some sort of transcendent or mystical experience through love.
