He is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others his feelings. Though he may love and care for someone a great deal, Rick Rubin rarely expresses his feelings openly and freely. Very often Rubin'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". Rubin may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than he feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes Rick difficult to live with. Rick Rubin needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with himself.
Rick has strong attachments to his past, the place where he grew up, his heritage and family traditions. In fact, Rick Rubin may be unable to step out of the habits and roles that he learned as a child. Rubin's ties to his mother are very strong and Rick 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. Rick Rubin 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 Rick Rubin to say no, especially when Rubin's emotions or appetites are involved. Generous to a fault, he is likely to be very free both with money and with affection.
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. Rick Rubin values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Rick 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 Rubin, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Rick Rubin appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Rick Rubin craves very intense, deep, emotional relationships, and would even prefer stormy, tumultuous relationships to ones that are calm but lack vitality and passion. Rick loves wholeheartedly and expects all-consuming, total devotion and attention from his partner. Casual, light relationships hold no appeal for Rubin.
Rick Rubin simply does not feel alive without vibrant, passionate love relationships in his life, and if his romantic urges are frustrated or if his intimate relationships become too tame or mellow, Rick Rubin will do something to stir up the flames. Rick Rubin relates naturally to fighting, competition, tumultuous conflict, and fiery lovemaking. He may be more selfish and demanding than he realizes.
It is easy for Rick Rubin to show others the love he feels for them and he talks freely to them about his feelings. Rick likes nice surroundings and wants to beautify his environment as quickly as possible, once he has come up with an idea to do so.
