Essence: Changeable in giving or receiving love.
Changeable in giving or receiving love
They are very impulsive when they start a relationship. They fall head over heels in love and they give everything they have. They are married before they know it, they have an intimate friendship before they know the person’s surname, in a manner of speaking. They act without thinking and their choice isn’t always a good one. After a while they realise that they were mistaken and they don’t want to have anything to do with that person anymore.
Changeable as a partner
Another possibility is that they are very changeable in their attitude towards their partner. One moment they think the world of their partner and the next moment, particularly when they receive any form of criticism, they get very annoyed with them, and this can even turn into depression. This happens because of their extreme lack of self confidence, particularly in the field of love. They don’t know how to keep the balance between giving and receiving: they have no example to go by, nothing to compare it with.
Another variation could be that they give a lot in the hope of receiving a lot later on. Their love acquires a certain value that can be used for exchange, where the rates of exchange within the relationship can fluctuate according to their moods.
Jealousy from a sense of insecurity
They can be very jealous. Because of their own alternating moods they are inclined to think that their partners is are just as unpredictable in their love for them. So they get jealous and this is made worse by their lack of self confidence and the feeling they are not beautiful enough.
Sometimes they have many partners, either at the same time or one after the other. Their love is spread out all over the place and they don’t know when to feel what for whom. Or they fall in and out of love at an incredible rate, separating from one partner and immediately falling for someone else again.
A changeable partner
Or they have a partner who is very changeable himself or herself, whose moods go up and down like a yo-yo, which makes their own love for them go up and down too. Or it makes them think that they are not good enough, not beautiful or attractive or loving enough. Sexual feelings tend to go up and down in a similar way too.
A manic depressive partner.
They are also inclined to choose a partner who has got problems. They are fascinated by the mysteriously alternating moods of their partner. Later on they discover that this is due to some deep seated problems, such as alcoholism or impotency or even manic depressive tendencies, with all the accompanying tensions of regular visits to psychiatric hospitals etc.
Changeable feelings of joy
As has been said before, their moods are very changeable, one moment very happy, the next moment very irritable, sad or jealous. To get back to feeling good again they try to do something nice for their partner or to give them a nice present. This will temporarily make them feel happy again, but because these mood changes keep happening to them, they doubt whether they will ever be truly happy.
They also have strongly alternating feelings about their looks. Usually they aren’t very happy with their looks, being afraid that others will think them ugly. But a single compliment may make them feel that they are probably quite beautiful after all.
Their opinion about clothes changes by the minute as well. One moment they’ll love one thing, the next moment something else. They’ll buy a new dress on an impulse and when they get home they already hate it.
