Secretive and inclined to brooding silences, it is difficult for others to really know his inner core, for James Dean only trusts and opens himself to a select few. Allowing himself to be vulnerable and to relinquish control in relationships is not easy for Dean.
James has intense, passionate loves and hates and is a jealously loyal and protective friend - or a fearsome foe. James Dean has a nasty habit of holding onto past hurts, resentments and guilt - and to keep such feelings to himself. It is important for James Dean to learn to forgive and let go, as well as to express his feelings openly and directly, rather than hiding or repressing them.
He is not content with superficial appearances and is always probing beneath the surface of things for hidden motives. James Dean has a great deal of emotional depth.
Dean depends a great deal upon other people for emotional support and he has a large "family" of friends that care about him and treat him as kin. The women in James' life are particularly important to him, and his relationships with them powerfully influence his sense of security and happiness. James Dean may be overly dependent and unsure of himself without a close partner.
He is temperamental and impatient and can be very difficult to live with. James Dean tends to respond with a temper tantrum (overt or subtle) if his desires are frustrated. James Dean becomes very irritable and bad-tempered if he lacks vigorous physical activity or other outlets for his aggressive, feisty spirit.
James Dean genuinely appreciates and understands women, and is likely to have many female friends, a network of women who love and support him. It is relatively easy for James Dean to attract companionship and affection, and there will never be a lack of such relationships in his life. Children are very important to Dean also.
Although James Dean was portrayed above as being assertive and combative, he also has a diametrically opposed tendency - namely the urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow James' fiery reactions somewhat, or he may seesaw between the two. His softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
James Dean tends to surround himself with people who are gentle, sensitive, peace-loving, and artistically or spiritually inclined, and there is a strong element of mutual compassion and sympathy in his personal relationships. It is easy for James to tune in psychically to other people's feelings and emotional worlds. James Dean may share this type of telepathic link with his mother, sisters, or female friends in particular.
James Dean seems to float above reality and has a very intense imagination. James likes to daydream and is apt to have many wishes and illusions that rarely have a chance to materialize. He is guided by his feelings and seems to live in a world of his own.
He is definitely not one to wear his heart on his sleeve. James Dean cares very much about others' opinions and craves love and appreciation as much as anyone - however one would never know it from Dean's reserved and seemingly detached demeanor. Casual, superficial relationships do not interest James at all. He is cautious and serious about love and really desires deep, genuine, lasting relationships. James Dean is old-fashioned about courtship and love relationships, and will remain faithful to his loved one in good times and in bad.
James Dean may be attracted to older persons who are emotionally mature and reliable and can provide the security James desires.
James is attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand his horizons, teach him something, or show Dean places and worlds he has never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with his love partner is important to him.
Also, James Dean 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.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in Dean's romantic relationships - not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying tension or discontent. This is because the people James Dean finds likeable, lovable, and agreeable to he may not be at all attuned to his sexual tastes and needs. Another, more direct way of saying this is, the people James loves and the people James wants to make love with are very different from one another. James Dean may be confused about what he really needs and wants in personal relationships. Dean needs to acknowledge that he has some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality, or security and commitment in love relationships but also a lot of freedom and excitement.) Trying to satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.
Sensitive and compassionate, Dean tends to be the "giver" in any relationship. James has high ideals and a refined attitude towards love relationships, seeking to relate in ways that go beyond egotistical and selfish needs. James is attracted to people with artistic or mystical inclinations.
