Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Colbert.
Stephen Colbert takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Colbert a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it.
