Loyal, dependable and hardworking would describe my husband as well.

My six has a difficult time showing sadness.(deeper emotions make him freeze up....which sometimes make him seem cold but I have found that in those situations, it is because he's so torn up on the inside that he cannot or does not know how to express it...... it almost looks like he feels nothing at those times(even though he's feeling it very deeply) but it is a control mechanism that he uses to deal with it)

It kind of threw me for a loop earlier in our marriage.. but once I learned what was going on.... I adjusted to it.

He does very well at expressing happiness and affection.

I think that fours and sixes do balance each other. My husband makes me feel more anchored in the real world and I think I free him up from the grindstone. I know I have been helpful to him in many ways. Technically, he was pretty messed up emotionally.....
Nothing like a four to help you explore your emotions.

We have been good for each other....through thick and thin. (:
