She is not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from her own emotions and those of others. It is almost as if she could turn her feelings on and off at will; Eva should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for she could easily become too impersonal. Family relationships and attachments are not as important to her as they are to most people and Mendes often considers her friends closer to her than her blood relatives. Certainly, Mendes' sympathy and concern extends much beyond her immediate family. In her personal relationships, Eva Mendes insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as she chooses. Eva does not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
Eva Mendes feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and she has little taste for convention and tradition.
Though she wants close relationships very much, Eva Mendes often closes herself off and does not really trust others who may wish to get to know her. Mendes is very wholehearted in her feelings and responses to people, and she wants all or nothing from the people she cares for.
Her feelings depend on the conditions in her environment and therefore Eva Mendes could be subject to moods. She is likely to have spiritual or life experiences that touch her deeply. Eva Mendes could also become involved in situations where others take advantage of her.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Eva Mendes gives very selflessly and devotedly to those she loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon her. More compassionate than passionate, Eva Mendes may become romantically involved with a person because she or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
She is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Eva feels she can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Eva Mendes idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
Promoting beauty, the arts, or entertainment can make Eva Mendes very happy. Eva wants to contribute something positive and loving to the world at large and she wants to be recognized for her beauty, artistic gifts, or loving generosity. Eva Mendes may "marry" her work - that is, being more involved in her career than in her private life. Mendes is a natural host or diplomat.
Eva Mendes shares whatever she has freely and her friends know they can always count on Eva's generosity and support - both emotional and material. Her good-hearted acceptance and tolerance of others' foibles goes a long way toward maintaining harmony in her relationships. Eva Mendes also has a lazy streak and sometimes avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it seems like too much trouble and too petty. Eva likes to socialize and will use any excuse to celebrate with friends. She cannot tolerate being overly restricted by her love partner, and encourages her partner's freedom as well.
Eva Mendes is warmly romantic and she openly expresses her appreciation and love of the opposite sex, though rarely in a crude or insensitive manner. She enjoys playing matchmaker and bringing people together romantically. Mendes is likely to find fulfillment and harmony in love relationships because she knows what she wants and needs in a romantic sense and expresses her desires honestly.
Eva's pleasure-loving nature and her emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing her affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Eva Mendes is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times she is far more contained as described here. Because she is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Mendes is to being left out or unappreciated.
Eva Mendes tends to deprive herself of pleasure, friendship, and love, either because she feels she does not deserve it or she thinks it is wrong to enjoy life too much. Mendes may have been indoctrinated with a duty-and-work-before-all-else orientation early on. She may also think of herself as unattractive or unlovable, and thus close her heart to opportunities to share love and companionship, never quite believing that others actually like her. Eva Mendes is apt to prefer solitude to being in uncomfortable relationships or social situations, and her shyness may be intense - especially when young. Learning to truly love and accept herself - including whatever flaws or imperfections Eva believes she has - is so important for her. This process of self-appreciation and self-love will reap rewards, especially in later life.
