Open and generous, Friedrich Nietzsche 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. Nietzsche rarely allows obstacles or difficulties to keep him down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, Friedrich always expects a better, brighter future. In fact, he is uncomfortable with his own or other people's problems and emotional pain. Friedrich Nietzsche often tries to "cheer up" or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but he unwittingly avoids or ignores the emotions involved.
Friendship means a great deal to Nietzsche, perhaps even more than love relationships or romance. For Friedrich Nietzsche to be happy, his mate must be his best friend and encourage Friedrich's aspirations and ideals. Friedrich Nietzsche also needs a great deal of emotional freedom and mobility.
His own feelings and emotions are something of an enigma to Friedrich, and it is often difficult for him to share with others what he is feeling.
Friedrich Nietzsche frequently withdraws from contact with the world, and needs a healing, peaceful environment in order to blossom and come out of his.
Nietzsche identifies with the oppressed, disenfranchised or underdog in any situation and he wants to help them or care for them in some way.
Friedrich has conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate his personal life and relationships. He may feel that he cannot depend on his love partner to take care of him or perhaps Nietzsche cannot decide what he really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover. If his needs for emotional sustenance and love are not satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can become a problem.
He is highly sensitive to everyone around him and is subject to strange moods or feelings. Friedrich Nietzsche has a tendency to exaggerate and could have unrealistic ambitions that may be hard to realize. It would be wise for Nietzsche to keep his expectations a bit lower.
He is quietly devoted and faithful to his loved ones, and often becomes a kind of servant to his love partner. Friedrich Nietzsche is more comfortable showing love for someone by doing something for them, making something for them, or simply being there for them - rather than telling them so in a romantic, soul-stirring sort of way. He is timid about expressing too much sentiment or emotion. Friedrich Nietzsche also underestimates his attractiveness and lovability and doubts his own worthiness to receive love and appreciation.
Friedrich is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show Nietzsche places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Also, Friedrich Nietzsche feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with his own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of his.
While he may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Friedrich Nietzsche to find - or more precisely, to sustain. When Friedrich becomes romantically involved with someone, either he or the other person will create rifts once a certain level of comfort and predictability has been achieved. Even if there is no outward break in the relationship, a certain emotional aloofness or dissatisfaction is apt to develop. This is because Friedrich Nietzsche really wants both closeness and absolute freedom - a combination that is difficult to attain. However, if he does not at least attempt to honestly fulfill both of these urges, events seemingly out of the blue will wreak havoc in Friedrich's closest relationships.
