He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, Friedrich Engels rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often Engels' 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". Engels may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes Friedrich difficult to live with. Friedrich Engels 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 Friedrich Engels a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to him. Antiques or things with sentimental value from Friedrich's past are especially dear to him.
Friedrich Engels 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.
He is temperamental and impatient and can be very difficult to live with. Friedrich Engels tends to respond with a temper tantrum (overt or subtle) if his desires are frustrated. Friedrich Engels becomes very irritable and bad-tempered if he lacks vigorous physical activity or other outlets for his aggressive, feisty spirit.
He is likely to be noted for his good looks and good taste in clothes. Friedrich Engels is able to attract and influence others because he is so pleasant and so sincere in his approach. Having an innate parental instinct, Engels also is strongly attached to his home and family.
Friedrich Engels has a very rich emotional life and the ability to do the right thing at the right moment. Through an appeal to the feelings, he is able to influence the public; Engels may have the desire to work in some capacity to bring about social improvements.
Friedrich Engels possesses the gifts of tact, courtesy and consideration, and has a strong desire to please and understand his love partner. Because he values harmony so highly, Friedrich Engels will compromise a great deal to avoid any discord or conflict in his relationships. Friedrich does not like to dwell on controversial or emotional subjects and often tries to "smooth things over" or "sweep them under the rug".
In love relationships, Friedrich Engels wants an intellectual peer, an equal and a friend. He is attracted to people who have a certain finesse, delicacy and subtlety. Friedrich Engels appreciates good manners and refinement and is not happy with coarseness or bluntness in a person.
A warm, loving, and comfortable home is very important to Friedrich Engels and he invests a lot of his energy into beautifying, decorating, and creating a lovely home. Also, Friedrich shares his affection with the people in his family very generously and having close family relationships is a major priority for him. Being at home makes Engels happy.
He needs a lot of emotional and romantic stimulation, and may not be very interested in having just one mate or love partner. Variety, excitement, spontaneity, and freedom are quite important to Friedrich, and "settling down" is not that appealing. Friedrich Engels tends to surround himself with unusual, creative, unconventional people that keep his life lively. Music or dancing or both play an important part in Engels' life.
He is prone to get 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 Friedrich Engels 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, Engels may be tempted to use his 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 his intentions are basically good, Friedrich Engels will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of his (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep showing their faces. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
