12 Harsh Realities You Have To Face When Dating A Gemini Guy

A true Gemini guy is a master wordsmith and will lure you in with all the promises under the sun. Once they have you in their sights, there's not much chance of you getting away as his natural charm makes sure anyone will bend to his will.

Famous gemini men include Mark Wahlberg, Kanye West, Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt, and Kendrick Lamar. He will keep you excited and on your toes - but there is a downside...

Real grownup relationships can be a struggle for the Gemini guy as he lacks the maturity that comes so natural to others. When he's at his best, you wouldn't want to be with anyone else in the world. So long as you are willing to put up with the following bad habits, personality flaws and harsh realties that all comes as part of the package - it's worth it in the end.

12 They Can Be Two-Faced


You don't have to be a keen astrologist to know that Gemini is the zodiac sign commonly associated with being "two-faced" or having a "split-personality." Symbolized by the twins, they are a real Jekyll and Hyde type of character. When you are dating, if you feel he is being false and dishonest then you should address this.

This behaviour usually comes from a place of insecurity. If you feed him plenty of compliments and comment on his achievements then over time he should change for the better.

11 They Need The Spotlight 


Be prepared to let your Gemini guy take center stage at social occasions and have all the spotlight on him. The harsh reality of dating a Gemini is that their mantra might as well be "anything you can do I can do better."

All strong relationships are about being equals, so do mention to him that you don't always feel like taking a backseat. They are so familiar with being the star of the show that they might not even be aware of it.

10 They Love The Sound Of Their Own Voice


Alongside needing the spotlight, Gemini guys also like to talk - a lot. There is no sweeter sound for them other than the sound of their own voice. At first they might seem quiet endearing and engaging but sadly over time your patience will wear quite thin.

Feeling as if you are not being listened to is a frustrating experience for anyone. Dealing with someone who doesn't allow you your time to speak needs to be addressed directly. Be firm and just say: "I am just going to finish my thoughts..." or "I will need time to speak now..." and this could help put an end to the rambling.

9 They Are Childish


If you don't enjoy childish behaviour from adults then this might not be the relationship for you. Gemini guys are always a bit behind when it comes to maturity so don't expect to be able to discuss mortgages, starting a future family or long-term deals. In their eyes, they are always going to be young at heart as he lives in his own dream world.

To help out your relationship, be sure to define exactly what you want him to change. For example: "I need to be in an adult relationship with proper commitments". Getting a Gemini to change their ways is tough, but constantly putting up a man-child is harder.

8 They Need Spontaneity 


Gemini guys need constant change. That is not to say they will be unfaithful, just you need to keep him on his toes. Throughout the relationship try not to stick to a "favourite restaurant" or a "date night Wednesday" as they will get bored quite quickly.

Exploring new locations, checking out a new bar that's opened, or enjoying an evening at home cooking a brand new recipe will help him to fall head over heels in love with you. After all, when you are dating Gemini you are technically dated many different personalities all at once.

7 They Are Flighty 


Naturally Gemini guys get bored very easily so they are constantly taking off for a new adventure. They will never be far from their passport and always ready to jet off at a moments notice. This does however make them quite unreliable.

If he promised to be at your Aunt's 50th birthday, then at the very last moment announces he's travelling out of state - really don't be surprised. Leaving whenever they feel like without considering others is all part of the Gemini package.

6 They Are Obsessive With Money 

Gemini guys love excitement and nothing gets them more stimulated than money. They are the natural salesmen of the zodiac and will stop at nothing to close a deal. They walk into a party and don't see acquaintances but instead - business targets.

So with all this extra cash they are making, will they be spending it on you? Not quite. As much as they love making money, they love keeping it too. They are excellent savers to the point of being frugal but they do always splash out on the big events like a home or a long holiday.

5 They Find The Bedroom Boring 


Gemini men are not fond of the bedroom - that is not to say they don't enjoy making love...you just have to be adventurous as hell! They are up for it almost anywhere that's not the traditional norm. Prepare for him to suggest a bathroom at a house party, in the car, outdoors, at the office when everyone has cleared out - danger just thrills him.

If you are looking for a traditionally average partner then this is not the guy for you.

4 They Need To Be With An Intellectual 


All those who fall under the Air sign are intellectuals. Gemini guys are by far the smartest and most creative of the zodiac - so be prepared to either brush up on your brainpower or be outsmarted.

They enjoy a heated debate (or as we might call it - an argument) about almost everything and they don't back down easily on their opinion. An evening indoors with a trivia board game or a day out at a history museum are ideal dates for Gemini.

3 They Don't Have A Problem With Long Distance 


If you are in a long distance relationship with a Gemini guy you may start asking questions like, "Is he thinking of me?" or "Is he worth waiting for?" You might feel quite anxious all the time, however he will just be cool about the whole thing as Gemini's don't stress over the long distance. They love texting so a plus is you will always feel well connected.

A great way to keep him keen and interested is to always have something to look forward to together. Although you might not be with each other everyday - make sure you have awesome plans for the future. This will keep him counting down the days for seeing you again.

2 They Need A Lot Of Space 


Like the above, the one thing a Gemini man values more than anything else is his personal space. If you're the kind of person who needs to constantly be at your boyfriend's side then this might not be the one for you.

This is not to say that Gemini men are not committed, in fact completely the opposite as when they love it is with all their heart. However, if they have withdrawn to spend a weekend alone and you are constantly calling during his "me time" then it's unlikely it will last.

1 They Are Most Compatible With Leo, Libra, Aries and Aquarius


A Gemini man needs a partner who is just as passionate and adventurous as he is. Their sign is ruled by air which causes them to have a fiery libido. Signs most suited with a Gemini man are Leo, Libra, Aries and Aquarius.

Satin sheets and fancy lingerie does very little for him, instead he is turned on by words and racy conversations. These four signs have the confidence and the same drive for passion to keep up with him. Unfortunately if you don't fall under one of these signs - you might find his animalistic tendencies a little too much to handle.
