A great deal of physical affection, closeness and touching is crucial to Tom's well-being, and he has a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times Tom Glavine substitutes food for emotional comfort and love.

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. Tom Glavine values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Tom 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 Glavine, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Tom Glavine appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.

While he may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Tom Glavine to find - or more precisely, to sustain. When Tom 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 Tom Glavine 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 Tom's closest relationships.
Tom Glavine has a very romantic, idealistic vision of love relationships and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh-and-blood human being ever quite lives up to his dream image of the "perfect love". Though Tom frequently fantasizes about love and romance - he may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. When it comes to love, Glavine can be evasive and dishonest with himself and others. Some of Glavine's love yearnings may be expressed through art, music or an involvement with mysticism.
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 Tom Glavine 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, Glavine 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, Tom Glavine 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.
Tom Glavine tends to be somewhat hypocritical and artificial and may even fool himself at times. His desires are likely to be a bit unrealistic and he may tries to hide his deception from others as well as from himself.
