Maybe you have a guy who isn’t really big on the whole expressing his feelings thing, or maybe you’re crushing on someone who seems to have a different girl on his arm for as many days as there are in a week. But perhaps it’s not just him and his personality – maybe it’s his zodiac!
You’ve probably read about how you or your SO is in bed, depending on their zodiac, or the ideal date based on your star sign, or what couples are most compatible, but haven’t you always wondered how he feels about love based on his zodiac sign? At the very least, you can learn what to do and what not to do, if you’re inclined to base your wooing techniques on his birth date. From the incredibly romantic and emotionally attuned Pisces to the obsessive-in-love Leo, discovering how your dude might feel about the L-word (should you choose to bring up such a heavy topic if you haven’t already) might save you a lot of pain and suffering, or at least answer a couples of questions about what to do next. In fact, it might even surprise you!
12. Aries- Loves to keep it bold and exciting
If you’re looking for a guy who’s passionate, bold, and daring when it comes to matters of the heart, then stay on the lookout for an Aries man. The Aries man is also one who enjoys the chase, but that doesn’t mean he’s in it for the game, because this guy plays for keeps. Giving in too easily isn’t fun for an Aries guy, but even once he’s gotten you, he prefers his love to keep things spicy and exciting, both inside and outside of the bedroom. He may even have some traditional ideas about love that could rub you the wrong way, the independent woman that you are, but sometimes it’s a good thing to let him fulfill his fantasy of being your knight in shining armour. However, while Aries dudes enjoy the chase and the challenge, once he’s made you his, he wants to be only yours – and vice versa. Since this sign can be self-centred and arrogant, jealousy is definitely something to watch out for if you find yourself in a relationship with an Aries.
11. Taurus- Doesn’t easily let people in
Instead of the grand gestures loved by the Aries guy, a Taurus man prefers to keep his cards closer to the chest, so you may be forced to draw him out to understand his true feelings for you. But don’t take his silence as disinterest – he’s just hesitant to let any woman into his heart. However, once he’s opened up to his SO, he’s yours forever. He has an intense sense of loyalty, and combined with his tender heart, this is a sign who isn’t likely to stray, even when times get hard, since the Taurus is such a stubborn sign (which is both a blessing and a curse in a relationship), he will stick by you when things get tough.
When a Taurus is in love, they don’t feel the need to show it off, and would prefer to spend intimate quality time with their partner, because they believe that that’s how stronger unions are built. Just don’t mess around on a Taurus, because their stubborn nature will certainly enhance their feeling of betrayal.
10. Gemini- Communication is key
The Gemini guy is one who’s meant to fall in love a lot throughout his life, because his sign is a social one with easy communication skills. While you may not be his first, there is the potential to be his last, as long as you can match him in terms of communicating your thoughts and feelings, so that nothing remains bottled up and waiting for a fight. However, if you find yourself getting attracted to a Gemini man, be warned: he will read too much attention as clinginess, and his outgoing, sociable nature wants nothing to do with a woman who will make him her only priority. (All the more reason to keep your own life busy.) Gemini men prefer to have a love life that is constantly changing, because that is what excites him. Anything stagnant or even too stable (in his eyes) could cause him to get that seven year itch that makes him bolt – and fast.
9. Cancer- Trust, trust, trust
Ultimately, love for a Cancer is all about trust. For a Cancer guy, their hard shell conceals gooey insides, and so it takes a lot of work for them to open up to their SO, which means they’ll have few deep romantic relationships and connections throughout their lifetime, and they like that just fine. Unfortunately for a woman looking to woo the crab, she’ll often have to make the first move to let him know it’s okay for him to put himself out there, but once he’s found a woman he can see himself with seriously, he won’t hesitate to wife her up! Cancers believe love to be about passion, trust, and stability, which is why they need constant reassurance that they’re doing a good job and that he’s loved, otherwise he might feel uncertain. For his ideal mate, they Cancer guy may be looking for a lady who reminds him of his mom, but whom he can make a wife.
8. Leo- Wants to know your mind and appreciate your beauty
For a Leo, love is an obsession. They view love as all consuming, but not in a scary, stalker kind of way. Instead, a Leo guy will look to have a woman he can connect with but who he can also show off. He wants his woman to be able to fit into all aspects of his life, where they can behave like a royal couple, draped in luxury. Leo guys are a fan of the dramatics, and prefer to sweep a woman off her feet with a grand gesture, partly in the hopes that she will return the favour. While the Leo guy can come across as confident, he needs constant reassurance from his SO, which he will gladly give back. Leos prefer to have their lovers at the maximum level, because they enjoy basking in the admiration of others. While this might sound tiresome to have to deal with all day, Leos are also fiercely protective and devoted to their loved ones, and will stick around if you treat them right.
7. Virgo- Commitment is key
Don’t even try to woo a Virgo guy with something big, because he’s just grouse about the impracticalities of it. Instead, Virgo guys tend to dip a toe in the pool of love before going in entirely, which is why it’s pretty unlikely to find a Virgo enjoying a summer fling. Instead, Virgo men prefer stable, long-term relationships, because love for a Virgo is about security and stability. Since this sign tends to overanalyze everything, they need to feel completely comfortable with a person before they’re willing to open up, and that only comes with time. A sign that’s more ready to settle down than others, the Virgo man isn’t always on the lookout for wifey material, because he naturally distrusts those who come on too strong. Rather than being one half of a love-at-first-sight dynamic, Virgo guys tend to view love as a slow-burning thing that often begins as friendship.
6. Libra- Scared to get hurt
You might be hard-pressed to find a Libra guy who’s even willing to say the L-word, because this sign is terrified of commitment! It really is an instance of it being not about you and all about them. While they like the idea of true love, they have a hard time believing it to be possible, which is why they usually get out before they get hurt. It can also be tough to get a Libra guy to open up about what’s going on in his head, since bringing up heavy emotional issues usually causes him to either shut down or flee. That’s not to say Libra men aren’t long-term or serious relationship material, it just takes a bit of work to convince them that it’s worth it. Eventually, a Libra can become a sign who is devoted to their partner’s needs, but will often let them take the lead, since they don’t totally understand this relationship stuff.
5. Scorpio- The give it their all
Scorpios are known for feeling emotions intensely, and that couldn’t be truer when it comes to love. A Scorpio man will give himself entirely in a relationship, and is one of the few animals of the zodiac who can actually work well with his own sign, because of their matched fieriness.
Once a Scorpio loves, he loves deeply and fearlessly, the kind of love that stories are made of. However, it takes quite a bit of work to get there. Although Scorpio guys give themselves over entirely in a relationship, it takes a lot of effort to break down their emotional walls first. Since Scorpio men like to keep an air of mystery about them, they won’t even let a woman know if they have feelings right away, because heartbreak can devastate a Scorpio. If you’re looking for a sign who will give you passion and love until the end of your days, though, you definitely want to set your sights on a Scorpio.
4. Sagittarius- Can’t be cooped up
Sagittarius men are known to be eternal wanderers, who get restless if they feel tied down or inhibited. They are much happier travelling the world than staying at home watching Netflix, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have coziness when you’re involved with a Sagittarius man. In fact, a Sagittarius man is looking for an equal when it comes to love, someone who can keep up with him. While commitment might freak him out, he’s more than willing to bring you along for whatever ride he’s going on, but don’t try and rain on his parade. It’ll probably take a long time for a Sagittarius guy to define the relationship, since he’s really turned off by clingy women, but once he’s involved, he loves nothing more than to please the object of his affection. Through conversations and experiences (in addition to being a nomad, Sag guys are also excellent listeners), you can develop a relationship that’ll have him thinking about love.
3. Capricorn- Put crazy emphasis on picking the perfect partner
When it comes to love for a Capricorn guy, it might disappoint you to know that it’s not very high on their list of priorities. Known as the hardest working and most ambitious sign in the zodiac, Capricorns don’t usually think about love much at all, which might lead them to become colder than they would like to be. Because of their attitude towards romance, Capricorns tend to go overboard when it comes to picking a partner, and they opt for emotional givers, because those soft hearts are able to break through a Capricorn’s tough exterior. Not one for big gestures or sweeping statements of passion, a Capricorn guy is more likely to give his SO a practical gift, because that’s how he shows his affection. Rather than lavish luxuries on their partners, Capricorn guys use their practical side to show how much they care, which may not seem romantic, but is actually very tender-hearted.
2. Aquarius- Light and airy
Another free-spirited sign, the Aquarius man is hesitant to be tied down to any one person, due to their thirst for adventure and social nature. Because of this, they are more inclined to have a wider group of friends, as opposed to spending their energy on only one person – even if that person is their lover. Since they’re so social, they’d prefer if things be kept light rather than delving into emotional depths, and they consider their life partner to be as much of a teammate and a friend as an SO.
While they’re happy to spread their affection in terms of friendship, they don’t mess around when it comes to love, which is why they prefer that their women begin as a friend first, before moving into more romantic terrain. From then on, you can look forward to a major adventure with the Aquarius guy of your dreams!
1. Pisces- When they fall, they fall hard
If you’re looking for a sign who is all about swooning and making moon eyes over you, then you’ll definitely want to shack up with a Pisces. The water sign is known for being incredibly emotional and sensitive, which means they take matters of the heart very seriously. When a Pisces falls in love, they fall completely, and prefer to constantly please and shower love on their partner. (If that sounds over the top for you, maybe a Pisces guy isn’t the one you’re supposed to be with!)
Since the Pisces is so pleasure-focused, they also exhibit a strong degree of emotional intelligence which helps them to open up and move forward in romantic relationships. That all sounds great, but a Pisces guy’s need to please can also leave him susceptible to lies and manipulation, and if he finds out you’ve taken advantage of his good nature, you can bet that this is one sign who won’t let you forget it – and will deliver a killer guilt trip to go along with it.
