He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, Mort Sahl rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often Sahl's 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". Sahl may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes Mort difficult to live with. Mort Sahl needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with himself.
Mort has strong attachments to his past, the place where he grew up, his heritage and family traditions. In fact, Mort Sahl may be unable to step out of the habits and roles that he learned as a child. Sahl's ties to his mother are very strong and Mort also seeks nurturing and protection from his spouse and other family members.
Gregarious and fun loving, he is always out to have a good time. Mort Sahl tends to "play now, pay later" and is prone to overspend, overeat, drink too much, and in general overdo, and even more so when in the company of others. It is hard for Mort Sahl to say no, especially when Sahl's emotions or appetites are involved. Generous to a fault, he is likely to be very free both with money and with affection.

In a love relationship, Mort Sahl is more interested in the person's sense of humor and intelligence than in her physique. Mort likes a partner who is mentally alive and keeps him guessing and Mort Sahl becomes restless and bored with someone who never asks questions, changes or surprises him. It is very important to Mort Sahl's happiness to talk, share ideas, go places together and learn new things together. Mort Sahl needs ample social stimulation, is somewhat of a flirt, and likes to have many friends of both sexes. Sahl finds a possessive, jealous partner very stifling.
Mort Sahl 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 Mort. He may feel his love will not be appreciated or reciprocated. Mort Sahl 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 Mort Sahl - i.e. having to give something up to be with the one he loves, or having to relinquish a person or an aspect of an important love relationship.
Mort Sahl shares whatever he has freely and his friends know they can always count on Mort's generosity and support - both emotional and material. His good-hearted acceptance and tolerance of others' foibles goes a long way toward maintaining harmony in his relationships. Mort Sahl also has a lazy streak and sometimes avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it seems like too much trouble and too petty. Mort likes to socialize and will use any excuse to celebrate with friends. He cannot tolerate being overly restricted by his love partner, and encourages his partner's freedom as well.
His love feelings are easily aroused and his romantic relationships begin with a sudden electric attraction, but they often end abruptly, and Sahl may be in and out of love relationships - especially in his younger years. Mort Sahl craves emotional excitement and needs to feel spontaneous and free, so he may avoid making firm personal commitments. Unusual or nontraditional forms of love and relationships appeal to Sahl, and he is attracted to unique, creative or unstable people.
