Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, Leonard Cohen has an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on telepathy. Leonard Cohen is extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - human or animal - suffer. Because of his kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people suffering from pain or confusion are drawn to Cohen for help, which he readily gives. Sometimes Cohen's soft-heartedness is taken advantage of.
He is a gentle, poetic soul and has a great love and affinity for music. Because many of his feelings are vague and he cannot easily verbalize how he experiences life, music seems a natural language for Cohen. He is also extremely romantic and often "in love with love".
Leonard Cohen has a sympathetic nature and instinctively reaches out to people in need of help. Cohen 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 Leonard, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts or service of some kind.
His emotional attitudes and instincts tend to be quite liberal. Leonard Cohen does not want to be caged or dictated to, and he feels everyone is entitled to do as they please in their personal and emotional affairs. Cohen tends to surround himself with people who are unusual, creative, open-minded, unpredictable, restless, and changeable, and his relationships, with women in particular, may be somewhat unstable as a result. However, Leonard Cohen enjoys an element of surprise and unpredictability.
He is quietly devoted and faithful to his loved ones and often becomes subservient to his love partner. Leonard Cohen is more comfortable showing his love by doing or making something for his loved one, or simply being there for her, rather than by making any romantic, soul-stirring declarations. He is timid about expressing too much sentiment or emotion. Leonard Cohen also underestimates his attractiveness and lovability and doubts his own worthiness of love and appreciation.
Leonard Cohen 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 Leonard. He may feel his love will not be appreciated or reciprocated. Leonard Cohen 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 Leonard Cohen - 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.
He is very romantic, idealistic and imaginative about love relationships. Leonard Cohen yearns for his "true love" or "soul mate" and may become disappointed in those who never quite live up to his dream image of the perfect lover. Cohen frequently fantasizes about love and often falls in love with someone he can only love from afar. He may avoid making a definite personal commitment. Gentle and sensitive, Leonard Cohen does not like to be approached in a very direct or aggressive manner. He is attracted to those with artistic or mystical inclinations.
