Warm, loving and generous in her relationships, Gloria Steinem inspires tremendous devotion and loyalty in her loved ones. This is good, since she would never settle for anything less! Gloria wants to be adored and worshipped like the royalty she feels she is, and it is difficult for anyone to resist the warmth and attention Steinem lavishes on those she cares about. Gloria Steinem has a great deal of pride and needs to be recognized and appreciated. The way to really hurt her feelings is to ignore her. She is genuine, sincere, and has a strong sense of personal integrity. Gloria Steinem hates emotional games and dishonesty.
Gloria Steinem may have done extensive traveling in her early years, or in some way had a background which enables her to understand and identify with many different types of people or cultures.
Steinem has a craving for things which are far away and foreign or for things she has never experienced before. Gloria Steinem wants to completely immerse herself in the feelings and tastes of a new place, rather than simply have facts or an intellectual appreciation. Emotionally, too, Gloria is restless and something of a wanderer.
She is assertive and confronts difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of way. Gloria Steinem cannot tolerate self-pity or passivity, and she can be rather brusque with others' emotional problems. "Stop crying and do something about it" might be Steinem's motto.
Gloria Steinem possesses a certain inner greatness and because of her inner qualities, she has the ability to influence others. People look to Steinem for guidance and advice, and her leadership is easily accepted by those with whom Gloria Steinem comes in contact.
She is open and unconventional in her attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. She enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Gloria Steinem values friendship very highly and in fact, she is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Gloria desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with her love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to her. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Steinem, and she abhors jealousy and possessiveness since she feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Gloria Steinem appreciates relationships in which her love partner allows her plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Beautiful, elegant, and harmonious surroundings are very important to Gloria Steinem, and she has an innate sense of style, design, and form. Socially, also, good form and politeness are important to Steinem and she instinctively avoids crudeness and dissonance.
She enjoys talking about love, relationships, art and the beautiful side of life. Gloria Steinem appreciates artistic people.
Gloria Steinem appreciates beautiful surroundings and congenial company, and though she enjoys helping people, Gloria Steinem will rarely put herself out too much in the process. She is good-humored and generous at heart but inclined to be lazy.
Gloria'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 Gloria Steinem 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 Steinem is to being left out or unappreciated.
Intimacy does not come easily to Gloria Steinem and she may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to her emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in her early life, Steinem does not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to break down all of her barriers and defenses. She may feel that she has few friends or people that really care about her. Gloria Steinem needs to learn to value and love herself more and to express her appreciation for others more openly.
She 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 Gloria Steinem 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, Steinem may be tempted to use her 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 her intentions are basically good, Gloria Steinem will find that her closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of her (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.
It is hard for Gloria Steinem to express her feelings and emotions to other people. She may feel especially inhibited in matters of love relationships and could feel dissatisfied and unfulfilled. Gloria Steinem tends to feel lonely, even when she is in the company of others.
