Are you known to fall head over heels in love with any person who shows you even an ounce of attention? Or are you one of those strong, silent types who has a hard time admitting you’re in love even after months of intense dating and wooing? There may be a reason for that.
Believe it or not, the way you approach dating can be strongly predicted by your zodiac sign — the position of the Sun, Moon, and planets on the day you were born. From Geminis being known for their quick wit and curious nature to Virgos being characterized as perfectionists who analyze ~everything~, here’s what your star sign says about the way you date.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
You’re a passionate self-starter who’s full of energy and always up for a challenge. Whether you’re at a work meet-and-greet or you’re with your besties at the bar, you’re open to love anywhere you go. You have no problem planning date night, but once there, you need a S.O. who’s going to go head-to-head with your strong personality and not be a push-over. Once you don’t feel challenged, you’ll move on to the next one.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You’re a persistent, patient woman who thrives on security and dislikes change. You like to take your time to get to know someone before you rush into anything too serious, and you’re the type of person who needs to be wooed by your S.O. You won’t commit to a serious relationship until you’re absolutely sure it’s what you’re looking for. While some may see this as you being self-centered, you just want to make sure the relationship you’re in is going to last. You may appear calm and stable to the outsider, but once you’ve found someone you’re serious about, your inner passion will burst forth.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
You’re a curious intellectual who can go from debating the best seasons of Real Housewives to discussing current events with ease. You’re looking for someone who will keep up with your quick wit and enjoys banter, because once you no longer feel intellectually stimulated, you’ll probably end up ghosting whoever you’ve been talking to.
You’re as unpredictable as they come, and you often flit from relationship to relationship looking for the perfect catch. You want an S.O. who makes sweet, sentimental gestures to keep the romance alive, and to keep you on your toes.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You’re a sympathetic, sensitive woman who heavily relies on intuition in dating and in life. Some may call you a homebody, but that’s just because you feel the most comfortable and secure in a setting you’re extremely familiar with. You’re looking for someone who doesn’t mind catering to you and pampering you every now and then, especially because you’re often taking care of the friends and family in your life in the same way. You aren’t quick to fall in love, and prefer to be romanced with gifts and love letters. Once you’ve found someone you’re serious about, you’re fiercely devoted and protective.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’re a passionate, playful person who loves attention and often has the brightest smile and the loudest laugh among your friends. You’re known to fall in love fast and hard. You look at love as an all-or-nothing deal, and so your passion and strong character mean it’s not something to be taken lightly with you. You’re looking for a S.O. who’s just as unique and independent as you are and someone to tear up the town with. You love spontaneity and adventure, so no two dates with you will ever be the same.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’re a natural critic and perfectionist who’s always looking for ways to improve upon or fix a situation or person, especially yourself. You believe in practical love and don’t wear your heart on your sleeve; you’ll analyze a potential S.O. to death before jumping head first into a serious relationship with them. Your tendency to be overly critical of yourself means that you require a lot of reassurance in a relationship, but once you feel secure, you’ll work hard to maintain a loving, nurturing connection with your partner.
Libra (September 23 – October 20)
You’re a charismatic woman who believes in a healthy mix of logic and emotion. You hate playing mind games when it comes to dating, and you’re looking for an S.O. who can give you both advice and support. You aren’t one for heated arguments, mostly because your empathetic nature finds it easy to see things from your S.O.’s perspective, and thus you’re one for more balanced, rational conversations to get to the heart of the problem.
Scorpio (October 21 – November 20)
You’re fearless, stubborn, and willing to sacrifice anything to get what you want. And this especially goes for dating. You’re incredibly passionate and mysterious, and you play the dating game just as well as the next person. Strong and fierce, many may think you want to wear the pants in your relationship, but this isn’t necessarily true. You’re simply looking for someone who’s brave enough to challenge you, yet secure enough to let you take the reigns every now and then. Once you fall in love, you’re fiercely devoted to your S.O. and will do anything you can to make them happy, seeing as they do the same for you, too.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’re an open-minded, curious person who lives for good conversation, especially when dating. Your fear of intimacy means that many of your relationships first begin as trusted friendships that grow into something more. You’re looking for someone who’s as well-traveled and well-versed as you are, and you won’t settle for someone who can’t keep up with your love of adventure and knowledge. Once in a relationship, you’re extremely loyal and devoted to your bae.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
You’re an independent, natural-born leader who is incredibly resilient in the face of adversity. And the same goes for dating and relationships. You’re not one to rush into anything lightly, and will only commit to your S.O. after you’ve thoroughly analyzed them and see the relationship going somewhere. Once in a relationship, you may appear to be submissive, but others shouldn’t be fooled. You have an innate independence about you and you’re not one to be walked over; you’re interested in having an equal, respectable union between you and your S.O.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
You’re a quirky, unpredictable, independent woman who can’t stand when people try to tell you what to do or who to be. You treat love and dating as a game, and you’re always looking to have some fun and play the upper hand. However, this doesn’t mean that you take relationships lightly or that you fall in love easily. On the contrary, it usually takes some time for you to trust someone enough to fully open up to them. You value a healthy dose of independence in a relationship, and you’re always looking for new ways to spice things up.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re the epitome of a dreamer, and you rely heavily on your intuition, emotions and spirituality, especially when it comes to dating. You love the idea of being in love, and you expect magic, mystery and romance in dating. Often an artist, you’re known to be imaginative and sensitive in a relationship, so you’re looking for an S.O. who can make you feel comfortable and secure. Because of your compassionate and generous spirit, you need someone who won’t walk all over you and will act as your protector to safeguard your heart.
