At Eckhart's worst, he wants an easy ride and friends will often let Aaron freeload because he is such an agreeable, friendly and pleasant sort.Alternatively, Eckhart could let other people take advantage of his hospitality and tolerance.
Aaron has the ability to win people over by what he says and how he says it.
Aaron has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make him cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation.
Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Aaron - one that can be enormously satisfying if he can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if he cannot.
Eckhart also avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it is too much trouble or too petty. While he may seek loving relationships and an "everlasting" love, this is not easy for Aaron Eckhart to find - or more precisely, to sustain.
When Aaron 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.
