When you first get into a relationship, you might have one very important question on your mind: Is your new man taking things seriously, or does he just view it as a fling that will last for a few months before moving on to someone else? Well, it could be either one — but naturally, every girl who is holding out for something long term wants to hear the first answer! The truth is, you won’t know right away whether or not he is taking things as seriously as you are. It will take some time for his feelings to be clear through his actions. But here’s the good news — if he does only see it as a fling, you’ll know after a couple months. However, you will need to understand exactly what signs to look for that will give away his real intentions.
So, what signs should you look for? How can you tell? Well, it all depends on his astro sign— when he is born will determine how he feels about romance and serious relationships. After six months of dating, here’s how to know whether or not he is serious about the relationship based on his astro sign.
20 Earth Signs: The Signs Will Be Subtle
Earth signs are not exactly what you would call sappy or emotional. Predictably, they are very proud to be so down to earth! It’s just in their nature — that attitude is one of the major defining traits for all earth signs. But if you assume that this makes them difficult to read, and it makes you nervous about figuring out how an earth sign guy really feels, well, let’s just say that those worries are valid! So we’re here to help you figure these guys out. They do make great boyfriends, but you want to be sure they’re truly invested.
19 Taurus: He’ll Go On Spontaneous Dates
Taurus guys are such planners. Seriously, they do not go anywhere without their to do lists! They are not the type to do anything without planning it out first. So how can you tell a Taurus guy is ready to take things to the next level and get serious?
When a Taurus guy is willing to step outside of that comfort zone and be spontaneous with you, that means that he really loves you.
This is not how they normally approach life, so if a Taurus guy will go on a random date with you on a weeknight, consider yourself lucky.
18 Virgo: He’s Totally Fine With Being Sappy In Public
Virgo guys are definitely not the ones you usually see holding hands with women in public or engaging in a little (classy and subtle) PDA.
But here’s the thing, if a Virgo guy decides that he’s truly in it for the long haul with you, he will let his guard down.
He’ll be the one who reaches for your hand when you’re strolling down the street, the one to lean in and give you a kiss goodbye in front of everyone, the one who will wrap his arm around your shoulders when you’re waiting in line. He might surprise you!
17 Capricorn: He Always Makes Time For Date Night With His Busy Schedule
Look, if you’re friends with any Capricorn guys (or if you have dated any in the past), you know just how busy these guys are. And clearly, they typically prioritize their career over relationships. There’s no problem with that — they should live in a way that makes them happy. However, this is also how you can tell whether or not a Capricorn guy is truly serious about your relationship.
If he will drop anything for date night with you — even if it disappoints his boss — you know that he really cares.
That’s when you know you have found a keeper.

The truth is, you will simply have to be patient with him.
He is going to take his time in a new relationship, and he is not the type to rush to throw a label on things right away. Before he commits to anything serious, he wants to make sure that you are both in it for the long haul, not a short fling.
15 Water Signs: They're Romantic, But They Can Be Guarded
Guys born under water signs are usually total hopeless romantics. Simply put, they just love being in love! However, it’s true that they can also be the guys who fall hard and fast.

It’s not really their fault — the stars have already determined this for them. But how can you tell that they actually love you, and they’re not just getting overly excited in the moment? Here’s how to tell.
14 Cancer: He Stops Questioning Your Affection
Cancer guys are super affectionate, and this can come back to hurt them sometimes.
When they are young, they assume that the girls they fall deeply in love with must feel the same way, but when they don’t, they end up feeling so hurt and heartbroken that they hold back in the future.
These guys often end up with trust issues, and it’s so sad to see. So here’s how you can tell that they are in it for real — he stops questioning your feelings. He stops expressing his doubts that you’re going to pack it up and leave him.
13 Scorpio: He Can Stay Calm During Conflict
If you’re familiar with Scorpio guys — especially if you have dated one before — you know that they are certainly quite emotional! Early on in relationships, they definitely have some major struggles when it comes to handling conflicts.

They are taught from a young age that they should hide this side of themselves, and when they are in a relationship that has just started, they will always be hesitant to open about certain things.
It will definitely take them time to get comfortable with the possibility of sharing their deepest secrets with you. However, once they do, you will know that your Pisces guy is going to be in your life for years to come.

9 Aries: He Says “I Love You” First
Aries guys are not the type to get into a relationship unless they are 110% certain that this is what they want out of life at the moment. Therefore, if an Aries guy says he loves you, he is not just stringing you along.

So if they decide they want to travel with you, that means they are just head over heels for you. They want to do all of their favorite things with you by their side this time.
7 Sagittarius: He Never Forgets A Monthly Anniversary
We all know that Sagittarius guys are super spontaneous. While Taurus and Virgo guys may live by their planners and schedules, Sagittarius guys rarely even bother to make grocery shopping lists.
