Serious and responsible, he tries to carry the world on his shoulders and rarely lets others know that he needs help and support. Gerard Way denies or ignores his own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept him if he appears "weak". He is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells himself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Gerard Way needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with his "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, he may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. His feelings and loyalties run deep, but he often does not let people know how much he cares. Gerard Way also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy himself, and play.
Gerard Way has a sympathetic nature and instinctively reaches out to people in need of help. Way also has a deeply ingrained tendency to want to improve or "fix" other people's lives, which can be annoying to the person who has no desire to be changed or "helped" in this way. For Gerard, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts of some kind.
His attitude toward other people is very emotional and Gerard Way feels a certain soul affinity with them. Gerard has an inner need to express his feelings to others and is especially partial to groups where he can help to further their accomplishments.
He is subject to changing moods and tends to alternate between associating with others and being completely alone, seeking to regenerate himself in solitude. Gerard Way seems to be too critical of himself and tends to generate distance from others.
His love feelings and desires are easily aroused but he may find it difficult to sustain his romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Gerard Way enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and he does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Gerard wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
Gerard is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling and people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show him places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Moreover, Gerard Way feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only for 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.
Loyalty, fidelity and security are very important to Gerard Way in love relationships. He is cautious about giving his heart away but true to the one who does win his love. His tastes are simple, even austere, and he does not appreciate frivolity. Way is interested in a person's character and inner qualities far more than in his or her appearance. Casual or superficial relationships do not interest Gerard Way at all, for love seems to get deeper and richer and more satisfying for him with time.
Sensitive and compassionate, Way tends to be the "giver" in any relationship. Gerard has high ideals and a refined attitude towards love relationships, seeking to relate in ways that go beyond egotistical and selfish needs. Gerard is attracted to people with artistic or mystical inclinations.
Intimate relationships are the arena in which Gerard Way explores the depths he is capable of. He could fall intensely and fanatically in love and be obsessive, extraordinarily jealous or deeply involved with his partners. Way will experience both heaven and hell in his closest relationships. There is undoubtedly a peculiarly karmic, fated quality to these relationships, which - though difficult - will teach Gerard Way things about himself and about love that he could not learn in any other way. Way will often enter relationships which he realizes - rationally - will be very difficult, yet he cannot resist them, nonetheless. Gerard Way needs not to avoid berating himself for these "bad" choices; instead, he needs to learn what he can from them.
His energy and initiative seem to be a bit weak and could frequently inhibit Gerard's sex life. His unrealistic ideals about relationships could lead to disillusionment, and Gerard Way may feel that real mortals are disappointing, and prefer his fantasies.
