Richard does not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and he is often unaware of his own or other people's deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder him and make him very uncomfortable. Richard Matheson would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but he tends to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe his own or others' inner depths.
Richard Matheson avoids heavy, demanding emotional relationships and is wary of making personal commitments.
He needs ample mental stimulation and feels close to people with whom he can share thoughts and intellectual interests. Conversation is very important to Matheson. The strong, silent partner is not for him.
Matheson works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to Richard, and he may invest more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. He is likely to be engaged in providing and caring for others in a professional capacity.
His will tends to be a bit weak and he seems to lack courage. Somewhat slow to take action, Richard Matheson thinks that he will fail because of his inadequacies as a person. He keeps his feelings to himself and should guard against depression and pessimism.
He is open and unconventional in his attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. He enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Richard Matheson values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Richard desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Matheson, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Richard Matheson appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Richard Matheson loves romance and wishes that the honeymoon phase of his love relationships would last forever! Matheson needs dramatic romantic gestures and displays of affection from his partner and he wants to feel very, very special - like royalty - to his beloved. Richard Matheson also has an artistic flair and he enjoys creating art or some form of beauty.
He is kindhearted and generous with both his money and his affections, and he is not happy if he has to budget or restrict himself in any way. Pettiness or stinginess is foreign to Richard's nature and Richard Matheson feels most comfortable in an elegant, beautiful atmosphere. Asceticism is not for Matheson. Gracious and charitable, he enjoys sponsoring social events or cultural activities. Richard Matheson has an optimistic, friendly attitude towards others and tends to bring out the finer side of people. He is likely to fall in love with someone who is successful, noble and idealistic.
He is prone to getting involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Richard Matheson to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Matheson may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Richard Matheson will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of his character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
