He is not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from his own emotions and those of others. It is almost as if he could turn his feelings on and off at will; Napoléon should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for he could easily become too impersonal. Family relationships and attachments are not as important to him as they are to most people and Bonaparte often considers his friends closer to him than his blood relatives. Certainly, Bonaparte's sympathy and concern extends much beyond his immediate family. In his personal relationships, Napoléon III insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as he chooses. Napoléon does not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
Napoléon III feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and he has little taste for convention and tradition.
Napoléon III has a soft exterior and tends to relate very personally and sympathetically to other people. However, Napoléon sometimes lets his emotions overpower his reasoning and logic, and consequently he is sometimes biased in his opinions. Napoléon III is impressionable and rather gentle, or at least that is the way he comes across. Napoléon wears his heart on his sleeves and cannot hide his emotions.
Bonaparte is rambunctious and a little rowdy at times, and he enjoys sharing this kind of energy with his friends. Making noise, cheering at a football game or even getting into a friendly fight all seem like good fun to him. In fact, Napoléon III needs to do these things - otherwise he gets crabby.
His love feelings and desires are easily aroused but he may find it difficult to sustain his romantic interest in relationships after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". Napoléon III enjoys a dynamic partner with a strong independent streak, and he does not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. Napoléon wants to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if it means instigating a fight.
For Napoléon III, caring and affection must be expressed tangibly, and he loves giving and receiving gifts. Napoléon greatly values luxury, comfort, and elegance and appreciates beautiful things. He can be self-indulgent and extravagant. Being overly possessive of people he loves and of his belongings is something Napoléon III needs to beware of.
While he may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Napoléon III to find - or more precisely, to sustain. When Napoléon becomes romantically involved with someone, either he or the other person will create rifts once a certain level of comfort and predictability has been achieved. Even if there is no outward break in the relationship, a certain emotional aloofness or dissatisfaction is apt to develop. This is because Napoléon III really wants both closeness and absolute freedom - a combination that is difficult to attain. However, if he does not at least attempt to honestly fulfill both of these urges, seemingly random events will wreak havoc in Napoléon's closest relationships.
Sensitive and compassionate, Bonaparte tends to be the "giver" in any relationship. Napoléon has high ideals and a refined attitude towards love relationships, seeking to relate in ways that go beyond egotistical and selfish needs. Napoléon is attracted to people with artistic or mystical inclinations.
