Dating, hooking up, hanging out—whatever your approach to relationships, like all things, the stars come into play. Here, astrologer Kelli Fox of TheAstrologer.com reveals the one word to describe your dating style, as well as how you connect with others when it comes to interacting with (possible) romantic interests. Because love's got everything to do with it.
Dating style: Impulsive
"Aries is hot blooded and loves the thrill of the chase," says Fox. "They don't deal well with overly clingy or emotional behavior." As for romance, Aries loves spontaneity. When it comes to dating "rules", for you, there aren't any. You kind of make it up as you go along, which is part of what makes you so attractive to others.
If you're female, you don't give a f**k about outdated rules about making the first move or sleeping with someone on what date. On the con side, you tend to lead people on—as you move on quickly, but on the pro side, you'll probably be one of the best loves of their life.
You probably fall in love quite easily–or at least, develop crushes quite easily–but settling into a routine is always the hard part for you. (You're not *particularly* known for your follow-through.) But once you find someone who can argue and move on fast, you'll know you've found the one. (As you might have guessed, you love makeup sex, to which you're probably thinking: duh. )
Dating style: Cuddly
"The Bull is pleasure seeking, sensual, and traditional," says Fox. "Exquisite taste, fine dining, and tapping all the senses is right up this sign's alley. If you're looking to be woo'd, adored and pampered then look no further. Players need not apply."
As for dating, Taurus lives for love and is built for commitment, which can (and should) be balanced by an energetic partner who appreciates Taurus' romantic nature.
You love to be in love, but that does *not* equate to boring—in fact, Taurus is one of the signs who truly gets sexiness in a elemental way. Your natural enjoyment of life's sensual pleasures translates into basic, sexual energy that others find alluring. You are quite the lover, giving as much as you receive—because isn't that what love is about?
Dating style: Flirty
"There is never a dull moment with fun and flirty Gemini," says Fox. "Brainiacs are what really turns the Twins on. Clever conversation and witty tidbits are what it's all about. If you're into trivia or Words With Friends then this is the sign for
For Geminis, sociable settings are the bread and butter for any date—i.e. you'd rather hang out at a bar then go to a movie or a museum. You love to engage in conversation, and you know that witty banter is the stepping stone to a great love connection. In fact, as a Gemini, you will most likely want to be friends first. But that doesn't mean years in the Friend Zone—you can move quick and fast when you feel a spark.
As for the bedroom, your curiosity and love of gab translates quite well—yep, dirty talk and invention is the name of the game. Once you find a partner that can keep up at a public party and in private, you'll have found someone you can be with for a long time.
Dating style: Nurturing
"Sweet and nurturing Cancer loves nothing more than to snuggle with their nearest and dearest," says Fox. "A home cooked meal can do wonders for this sign. If you're looking for a committed relationship straight off the bat then this is the sign for you."
While you're not one to stride into a bar, grab someone, and immediately say "you!", your sexiness is subtle and you connect with others on an emotional, deep level that can take others by surprise. (Have you ever had someone admit they loved you years and years after the fact—and you were oblivious? Yep, you're a true Cancer.)
As a Cancer, you're not fooled by players or those who are fickle with their feelings. You know what you want, and while you're not known as being aggressive, you do know what it takes to get what you want in love. Deep conversations over a dinner (that you probably made) is your favorite date activity. And when it comes to sex, you're extremely intimate. You love giving all of yourself in both relationship and sex—meaning you're pretty much down for anything, as long as they're committed to giving you what you want—love and commitment.
Dating style: Passionate
"Leo is dramatic, demonstrative, and loves to be thoroughly adored," says Fox. "The King or Queen of the jungle wants to be appreciated and admired. If you're willing to sing your lovers praises and in return be taken care of then this is the one for you!"
For a Leo, you don't just love to be adored, you return the adoration 100 times over, doing anything for the one you call yours. You're not self-centered in love, but rather delight in being in a relationship—which, yes, you're one for monogamy.
In the bedroom, your passionate nature is obviously legendary—but in the bedroom, you get to be a little more vulnerable, and that can be quite endearing to your partner (who presumably knows your take charge energy everywhere else). Make sure to show how much you trust the one you're with and it'll payoff big time.
Dating style: Thoughtful
"Virgo has a reputation for reliability, practicality, and flexibility," says Fox. "This is a sign who seeks perfection and steady progress toward commitment and love. A fitness or wellness date would be the perfect way to win this sign's heart."
Virgos are known for perfection in all things, and that can mean high standards when it comes to choosing a partner. But when it comes to early dating, Virgos appreciate a romantic gesture or 500—knowing good and well that when it comes to commitment, you're the ones who really bat 1000.
Here's the thing many people don't get about your sign–while reserved and practical on the outside, once you're *in love* your wild side shines, and you'll have a goodie drawer full of items that will be quite fun in the bedroom. You'll just first need to get the intimacy you so desire and crave.
Dating style: Affectionate
"No gesture is too small to win the heart of this hopeless romantic, Libra," says Fox. "Flowers, chocolates, love letters—basically the works. Stylish, intellectual types who know how to keep the conversation flowing are a must."
Libras are probably the most romantic sign of the zodiac, and they adore being in relationships. But don't get carried away—they also love going out, where they can be seen and see what else everyone is up to. Translation? The perfect date for you is probably at a concert or a fun, rowdy bar. You love to be social, so you appreciate partners who can keep up and do their own thing when in the company of others (i.e. no babysitting), but can also spend time with you happily side by side.
You have a knack for putting others at ease and making them feel special, so you'll need to make sure that you don't lead others on if there's no spark. But when you find someone who's compatible, you're 100% devoted—and you'll make sure to let your partner know that both in and out of the bedroom.
Dating style: Seductive
"Lusty, passionate Scorpio knows how to dig beneath the surface," says Fox. "They seek a deep emotional connection; real commitment—meaning a lover who can hang on and stand firm through emotional upheavals, soul-shaking intimacy, and anything else life flings their way."
Yes, Scorpions are intense when it comes to dating. You're not one for easy hookups or using an app (well, not as a first resort, at least). You love meeting people who understand your ever-changing moods and nature, and can play off of them—i.e. someone with a lighthearted nature but great emotional depth.
You prefer to be in control of any romantic relationship, including in the bedroom—yep, you take the reigns. But this kind of aggressiveness is exciting for the right partner—they never know what to expect from you. And you? You like it that way.
Dating style: Adventurous
"Sagittarius is into free-thinkers, adventurers and exotic types," says Fox. "They want a lover with strong convictions and a seeking, philosophical outlook; sensual pleasures experienced in the open air, beneath the stars; foreign foods and films; freedom and independence."
When it comes to dating, Sagittarius loves anything that feels unexpected and different—think food fairs or a pottery class. You're a freedom-loving sign who won't be pressured into commitment, but your easygoing nature is so magnetic for many. You hate predictability, but also love new experiences—and to you, that includes love. As long as you find someone who is down to go where the relationship takes you (and keeps you guessing), you're absolutely a devoted companion.
Like stated, you love new experiences—and that translates to the bedroom (or, you know, wherever) as well. You're completely unafraid to try something new and your openness to explore is completely exhilarating for many. Just make sure you pick the right person who is along for the ride.
Dating style: Committed
"Capricorn is all about financial and emotional stability," says Fox. "They usually have a list of life accomplishments; are hardworking, goal-oriented types who know what they want and how to get it. They want a lover with high-class tastes to share sensual pleasures."
Capricorns don't kid around when it comes to dating. If they like you—great. If they don't? Eh, it's time to move on. Even after date one, they don't play around—they're looking for someone who is serious about them and this relationship, and if there's no spark or foundation for a relationship, they're out. This means that you prefer a "drinks only" policy, where you can make a quick exit if needed.
But when you like someone, they'll know it immediately, as you sweetly surprise them with things they love, like tickets to see their favorite team or medicine and soup when they're feeling ill. In the bedroom, you take charge, making sure you figure out exactly what your partner wants. Your hardworking that way.
Dating style: Unconventional
"Aquarius is an open-minded, forward-thinking type who is up for new experiences in life and love," says Fox. "They are into anyone who follows up big ideas with focused action; plenty of autonomy and alone time; a lover who accepts and adores their many idiosyncrasies is a great match."
Ah, Aquarius—you complex individual. When it comes to dating, you tend to start as friends first and will remain friends even if the romantic relationship doesn't last. You tend to come off aloof and detached, because you value freedom and *hate* PDA. But the funny thing is, you're actually deeply caring about others–especially any romantic partner. In fact, many admirers will think you're playing hard to get. But once they get to know you, they'll realize you are actually quite affectionate, in your own way. For dates, you like doing something that you can talk about after—so an indie movie and cocktail or an art opening (where you can drink free wine) is right up your alley.
When it comes to sex, you're not one for any type of rules. If you feel like sleeping with your date, you'll do it. For you, sex and romantic connection are two sides of the same coin, but also two separate experiences. You tend to let your freak flag fly in the bedroom, as you have unique, kinky tastes. When you find a partner who can get you to connect on an emotional level (without you feeling restricted), while also satisfying your sexual prowess, you'll be smitten.
Dating style: Creative
"Pisces is a true romantic, emotionally sensitive who wears their heart on their sleeve," says Fox. "They have a wide-open heart and need emotional support from a reliable, nurturing and trustworthy grounded, stable lover with honorable intentions."
Pisces has an enormous heart. You love to love and you don't care who knows it. But the dreamy sign is prone to just that—dreams. It's oftentimes hard for you to make a move. You're penchant for attracting bold, practical partners is not a surprise—the balance is something you crave.
You're style of dating is often submissive at first, letting others take the lead. But later on, that can change. Because of your nurturing nature, you tend to respond well to what your partner needs in any environment. If your partner is more easygoing in the bedroom, you'll amp it up by taking charge. Like stated, you love a balance. And once you find your perfectly in-tune match, you'll be happily in love for a long time.
