One of the most amazing aspects of life is the tango that takes place between men and women — it’s a dance that is caught in the rapture of potential and possibility, the chance of making a significant connection with a person that you’ve never met before. The idea of it can be outright tantalizing and most people find it so, enough to pursue and chase, to jump into an unknown adventure of finding that other person that is right for them. But why? The simple answer is that we, as human beings, are relational creatures, a species that is very much of the pack animal variety. Our groupings, and especially our pairings, come about from a biological necessity and all we do from that point is follow course.
However, following that course into a relationship can be tenuous, and oftentimes, it’s fraught with ups and downs, highs and lows — an ebb and flow that’s challenging on many levels, especially when just starting out: that first date. First dates are usually the outings that you wished that you could skip to avoid awkwardness, to abscond from an oncoming debacle, or to just know if he’s the right one. Well, there are ways to better the chances of securing the right one for that fated, yet sometimes, elusive relationship. Find out what he secretly wants to do on a first date according to his sign — a tell-tale card of whether you and him are meant to be.
20 Aries: Show Off
Normally, no one likes a show off. Most people would look at others that tend to overdo things as either overcompensating or possibly being arrogant. Truth is, most Aries are simply just really concerned about themselves and what surrounds them and that makes them particular — and being particular can really be a good thing.
19 Aries: Work, Work, Work!
There are two sides to a coin and while Aries can definitely be a show off, they are often also hard workers, which could speak to the reason for their flossing of identity or what they have. Many could consider this to be more so about appreciation than arrogance — to be earnestly proud of accomplishments is a good thing. And being with someone who is willing to put in hard work is definitely a good thing when it comes to building a relationship.
18 Taurus: The Foodie
As far as dates go, if you’re getting to know a Taurus, then one thing to be prepared for is that they are very much into food, so that may affect where you go (also, how they view you). A Taurus tends to like high-quality meals because of an acute culinary acumen. If you like to eat and love good-to-great-to-phenomenal dinner outings, a Taurus may be the best delivery boy.
17 Gemini: Talk The Talk
Just know that with a Gemini, you’re in for an ear-full. Yes, they like to talk so when going out on a first date with a Gemini, be prepared to listen and to be able to delineate your own ideas and thoughts to give out in a minimum. So, if you’re a person that likes to listen and loves to hear others, a Gemini can be that perfect first date. Also, there’s no worry over breaking the ice and any potential awkward lulls of silence. Just be all ears and it will get your everywhere with him.
16 Cancer: Cages May Get Rattled
So he’s sweating some; there’s a little bit of awkwardness, but he seems nice. Depending on who you are, the nervousness of a Cancer can be endearing or off-putting. It’s just important to know that it’s just him putting too much pressure on himself. In time, things will ease, but at the moment, he desperately wants to make a good first impression , and at least with that you know that he is into you – enough to impair him slightly. I mean, that is kind of flattering.
15 Leo: A Showman
Game on — just know that with a Leo, you’re going to get what he believes is the best version of himself. Why?
Because for Leos, image matters, and first impressions are statements of identity.
This can be convoluted in that the surety of knowing who you’re dealing with may feel elusive. But at least you know that for the moment you are getting the very best that this person has to offer — it’s up to you if it’s to your liking.
14 Leo: Something To Prove
While Leos are definitely out to make that great and perfect first impression on that first date, they are also seeking to prove themselves. Normally, they want to be what it is that you’re looking for and so most often Leos are game to try new things because hesitancy is an enemy to them and their efforts of being in a relationship with you. This can make for some serious fun if you are an adventurer and like to explore — a guy who is a Leo will take that ride with you.
13 Virgo: Practice Does Not Make Perfect
There’s really no other way to put this, but Virgos can be aggressive and maybe a little snobbish when it comes to first dates so it may take some adjustment on your part to see that their intentions are better than how you may be perceiving them. See, Virgos are usually perfectionists and first dates are high-risk ventures, thus, hedging bets is necessary and seeking to make things right is a goal and a must.
12 Virgo: Looking His Best
Remember your senior year of high school and that God-awful superlative list that circled around right before you were about to graduate? There was probably a spot on there for best-dressed – well, it was most likely a Virgo that got it. Virgos have the tendency to want to look their best and so when it comes to that illustrious first date, you can be sure that they will look their absolute best with nothing out of place. That goes with their perfectionist mentality.
11 Libra: Prince Charming
A first date with a Libra will most likely be one of the sweetest moments in your dating life. Libras are naturally charming and are usually attractive — even if not in a physic al sense, there’s something about them that is an allure and appeals to others. While on the date, you can expect to an amiable persona, a person that you will feet that you can honestly gel with, and there may be a sense of openness and vulnerability that will be exceptionally welcoming. Sounds like a comfy pillow, huh? Well, that’s the idea — they want to be warmth while at the same time bring about a coolness that just fits.
10 Libra: The Measure Of A Man
While the Libra man on your first date is charming the pants off you (figuratively), he is also quietly sizing you up.
See, the goal of the Libra man is to find the right one, and so in a sense, he tends to provide the best possible environment for the opportunity to judge whether or not you are that person for them.
At least you'll know Libras won't waste your time if they don't feel the spark.
9 Scorpio: Love A Good Mystery
Cloaked in wonder and possible folly with a hint of greatness, a man who is a Scorpio is a mystery. Given that, the onus of the first date falls more on your perception of him rather than what he’s doing or giving — because he’s not giving much, only enough, bread crumps really, and it is up to you to pick up those bread crumbs. Oh, and believe it, he’s watching to see if you do.
8 Scorpio: Advantage/Love
Scorpios allow for their first dates to have an advantage and depending on who you are, dating a Scorpio may work to your advantage, especially if you like the challenge of earning a person’s trust. So, what you have to look forward to on a first date is intrigue and the potential to feel like you are in some form of control because Scorpios are gauging whether or not they can be with you by seeing if you can be with them.
7 Sagittarius: Wanderlust
Don’t let the “lust” aspect in the wanderlust sub title hinder your thinking when it comes to the Sagittarius. It is not about being lusty in the sense of promiscuity, but rather in the thrill-seeking of life. Even on a first date, a Sagittarius is looking for adventure and the newness of life. For them, the first date in itself is an experience and while they welcome that experience, they are gauging whether or not as a partner if you would be someone to join with them on other adventures.
6 Sagittarius: Wanderlust Part 2
But there may be a downside with a Sagittarius. Well, going back to the title Wanderlust, a Sagittarius has the tendency to let their eyes wander as much as their need for adventure. It’s a kind of roaming that is second nature. A person out on a first date with a Sagittarius is in for an adventure but must also understand that at the moment, there’s no real commitment, so things are up for grabs.
5 Capricorn: Judge Dread Or...
Their eyes are searching you, trying to see who you are and if you’re worth their time and effort.
A Capricorn man will spend the entire night judging the person they are out on a first date with —
and it’s not meant to be egoistical, but it’s a part of their nature. There’s a level of appropriateness in thinking, behavior, and looks that must be met. For a lack of a better word, Capricorns have a standard and the first date is about passing that litmus test.
4 Aquarius: Mindgame
Their eyes are different — there’s a depth to them that is unknown with others. This man is extremely cerebral and possibly existential and even while on a first date, the Aquarius is caught within himself and his world. The first date then becomes about whether or not you want to or can break into that world.
3 Aquarius: Depths Of Commitment
First dates are trials, a crucible that either brings in or weeds out people who may not belong in your life in a romantic and/or relational way. There are moments where wonder comes into play among other things — it’s a holistic experience that takes both people on a journey. However, with the Aquarius, breaking into his space can be difficult but if done, even on the first date, there’s potential for a deep connection.
2 Pisces: Hard To Rebound
Well, with a Pisces, it may be difficult gauging where you stand depending on where on the dating spectrum you’re falling for them. Pisces are notorious for not being able to get over their past relationship. And unfortunately, on a first date, this could not bode well for anything new possibly bursting onto the scene. So, be on guard for that.
1 Pisces: Easy To Rebound
On the other side, a Pisces' best way of getting over a past relationship is to throw themselves wholly into another relationship. But this isn’t the normal one-night carnal ravishing, rather true to form, a Pisces is looking for an emotional connection and may be willing and seeking to rebound in that way with a pursuant worthy on that first date. So, anything with a little pathos involved will due just right.
