He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, Keith Richards rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often Richards' love for someone is expressed by his wish to help him, do something tangible to benefit him or serve him in some way.
It is also difficult for him to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for he often feels that he does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". Richards may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.

Richards has a craving for things which are far away and foreign or for things he has never experienced before. Keith Richards wants to completely immerse himself in the feelings and tastes of a new place, rather than simply have facts or an intellectual appreciation. Emotionally, too, Keith is restless and something of a wanderer.
He is temperamental and impatient and can be very difficult to live with. Keith Richards tends to respond with a temper tantrum (overt or subtle) if his desires are frustrated.

Excitable, spontaneous and enthusiastic about anything new, he may be perceived by others as being too impulsive, especially in personal relationships. It is not easy for Keith Richards to make or keep commitments, since he does not know how he will be feeling from one day to the next. Emotional freedom is very important to Richards. His domestic life may be very unstable - but Richards likes it that way.
He is easily influenced by his environment and tends to get depressed when things do not go the way he expected. Relationships are not easy for Keith Richards; he could be a recluse, avoiding most contact with others.

Keith Richards often hides his affection, or finds his feelings difficult to express or get across to the person he loves. Being openly affectionate and trusting often does not seem safe to Keith. He may feel his love will not be appreciated or reciprocated. Keith Richards may get involved in secret love relationships or fall in love with a person who is quite unavailable to him. Love and sacrifice often seem to go hand in hand for Keith Richards - having to give something up to be with the one he loves, or having to relinquish some person or some aspect of an important love relationship.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in Richards' romantic relationships - not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying tension or discontent. This is because the people Keith Richards 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 Keith loves and the people Keith wants to make love with are very different from one another. Keith Richards may be confused about what he really needs and wants in personal relationships. Richards 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.
