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; H.D. 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 Doolittle often considers her friends closer to her than her blood relatives. Certainly, Doolittle's sympathy and concern extends much beyond her immediate family. In her personal relationships, Hilda Doolittle insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as she chooses. H.D. does not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
Hilda Doolittle feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and she has little taste for convention and tradition.
She is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for her belongings give Hilda Doolittle a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to her. Antiques or things with sentimental value from H.D.'s past are especially dear to her.
Hilda Doolittle may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of her immediate circle.
Doolittle can be hard to get close to. Subconsciously she may feel that too much closeness in her relationships will interfere with doing what she needs to do and being her own person, so Hilda Doolittle puts up subtle walls and distance herself when someone begins to want more of her than she can comfortably give. However, Doolittle may cut off sources of emotional nourishment and support that way, and end up feeling alone and lonely. Hilda Doolittle might even develop digestive problems. Overcoming her fears of intimacy, while at the same time affirming and acting on her autonomous needs, is the challenge here.
Hilda Doolittle has a strong sense of duty, is serious and tends to see everything on the dark side. H.D. should guard against emotional inhibition and depression. She prefers to lead a secluded, modest and simple life.
Warmhearted and generous in love relationships, Hilda Doolittle cannot tolerate pettiness or stinginess in her partner. H.D. wants a hero to idolize and adore, someone to wholeheartedly admire and be proud of. Hilda Doolittle is tremendously loyal and devoted once she gives her heart to someone.
Hilda Doolittle craves love, appreciation and attention from others and hates to be ignored. She is rather susceptible to flattery and loves to feel special. Doolittle enjoys a touch of drama and color in her love relationships and she is impressed by grand romantic gestures or extravagant expressions of generosity.
H.D. is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand her horizons, teach her something, or show Doolittle places and worlds she has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with her love partner is important to her.
Also, Hilda Doolittle feels love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with her own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of hers.
Hilda Doolittle has a very romantic, idealistic vision of love relationships and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh-and-blood human being ever quite lives up to her dream image of the "perfect love". Though H.D. frequently fantasizes about love and romance - she may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. When it comes to love, Doolittle can be evasive and dishonest with herself and others. Some of Doolittle's love yearnings may be expressed through art, music or an involvement with mysticism.
