Todd Haynes responds very strongly to the emotional tone and atmosphere around him, and can be dominated by his fluctuating and unpredictable moods. Haynes often appears irrational to others because he cannot always explain the reason or source of his feelings. Anyone who lives with Todd Haynes must accept his ups and downs and appreciate Todd's need for times of withdrawal.
Todd Haynes is also very sympathetic and understands the unspoken feelings and needs of others. Todd Haynes takes slights and rebuffs very personally and though he may forgive a transgression by a friend or loved one, he never forgets it.
He is emotionally expressive and often dramatizes his feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. Todd Haynes cannot hide his instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and he does not make any pretenses about his personal sympathies or antipathies.
Todd Haynes has a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets him into trouble, as Todd takes risks on impulse or whim.
Some rather acute fears of being excluded, rejected, left out in the cold or separated from loved ones can make Todd Haynes either extremely cautious about getting close to people or clingy toward whoever gives him any warmth or security. Todd Haynes tends to withhold and clamp down on many of his feelings and craves nurturing and security, perhaps feeling that they are unacceptable or will never be satisfied. Learning to be open and trust others to nurture him is important to him. His earliest years, especially Haynes' relationships with his mother, will determine whether Todd Haynes will overcome his fears or retreat behind a mask of self-sufficiency and indifference.
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. Todd Haynes values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Todd 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 Haynes, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Todd Haynes appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Haynes is very much aware of his personal appearance, attractiveness, and charm, and he can be rather narcissistic. On the other hand, Todd Haynes is concerned with getting along with others and he has a pleasing, agreeable manner that people find quite appealing. Todd uses tact or charm to get what he wants rather than intense effort or force. His desire for love and affection colors everything Todd Haynes does.
Todd Haynes is not a traditionalist where love and relationships are concerned, and he often feels that formal commitments and conventional relationships are too binding and restricting. Thus, Todd is not very comfortable with forming lasting attachments or letting other people depend on him. He may be attracted to wild, unreliable, highly creative and/or unstable people who do not offer him any security. Even if Todd Haynes professes to want something steady and solid, he is very reluctant to give up his freedom and autonomy for its sake. At best, he is suited to serial monogamy or relationships that leave Haynes a lot of breathing space.
