Walter 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.

Walter Russell 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.
Walter Russell 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 Russell. The strong, silent partner is not for him.
Russell works well with the public and has an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to.

He is romantic and tender in love relationships, and it is of utmost importance to Russell to remember birthdays, anniversaries, family rituals and other personally significant days. Walter Russell seeks caring, emotional support, and security in his love relationships. Walter likes to be needed, as well as to cherish and protect his loved ones, of whom he is somewhat possessive.
Russell is a very sociable, congenial person and he wilts very quickly without relationships with good friends and people to share good times with. Walter Russell thoroughly enjoys working with others on group projects or community activities. He is quite happy when he is a part of a club, support group or team of some sort.

Walter's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Walter Russell is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times he is far more contained as described here. Because he is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Russell is to being left out or unappreciated.
Feelings of loneliness, extreme shyness and/or the fear of rejection plague Walter Russell and may well inhibit him from expressing warmth and affection in an open way. Denying himself pleasure, comfort, and "nice things" due to feelings of unworthiness can also limit the joy Walter allows himself. Heartache and a loss of love in his life - perhaps while quite young - will serve to either close his heart to love or cause him to deeply cherish the friends and love he receives from others. The saying that "true love is hard to find" is certainly true for Walter Russell, but he will value it tremendously when it does come into his life.
The feeling that "there is not enough for me" may cause him to be very frugal and stingy with money as well.
Walter Russell has a propensity for clandestine and secret love affairs and tends to keep his relationships hidden. Walter could find himself in some peculiar relationships where he or his partner could be reluctant to make an external commitment.
