What It’s Really Like to Date Guys According to Their Zodiac Sign

If you’re single and looking for a man, then you might have noticed that dating can be a complete nightmare. Luckily, your trust astrologer at My Sign Says has your back! We’ve got the details on dating guys from every sign of the Zodiac.

Aries (March 21-April 19) 

Romance Style: Aries is all about the chase. This is one Zodiac sign that loves it when you play hard to get. Let Aries make the first move–but don’t be afraid to stand your ground, either. They want a challenge.

Perfect First Date: Don’t be surprised if an Aries guy wants to get physical on the first date. No, not in the bedroom–we’re talking a bike ride or even a 10k race. Rock climbing or axe throwing would also be good picks.

Watch Out For: Aries guys can be hot-headed. Usually, they just need to blow off steam, but watch out if he seems to have anger issues beyond the norm.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) 

Romance Style: Taurus guys are natural-born providers. They’ll want to make sure that you’re comfortable, well-fed, and enjoying yourself. They usually prefer being in their own territory, so expect to spend most nights in rather than going out.

Perfect First Date: Depending on how much he trusts you, Taurus will either take you out for a decadent meal or cook for you himself at home.

Watch Out For: The downside of dating a Taurus is that they can be really, really stubborn and opinionated. They don’t like to have their opinions challenged, either.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) 

Romance Style: A Gemini guy will sweep you off your feet in a whirlwind romance that makes you feel breathless. They are usually smart, multitalented, and hilariously witty. You’ll never be bored!

Perfect First Date: Expect the unexpected with a Gemini. He’s equally likely to take you to a monster truck rally or a poetry reading on your first date.

Watch Out For: Geminis fall in and out of love quickly. Getting your guy to commit for the long term won’t be easy. They’re also terrible with money.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) 

Romance Style: Cancer is an old-school romantic. A lot of their moves come straight out of the classic rom-com playbook–think flowers, chocolates, and big romantic gestures.

Perfect First Date: This traditional gentleman will ask you out for a candlelit dinner–and he will insist on paying for your meal.

Watch Out For: Cancerian dudes can be emotionally clingy and jealous. They need a lot of reassurance that you care, so learn their love language and use it often.

Leo (July 23-August 22) 

Romance Style: Dating a Leo can be kind of a lot. They tend to be charming extroverts who need to be surrounded by people in order to shine. Leo will probably be very excited to show you off and introduce you to all his friends.

Perfect First Date: Forget dinner–drinks and dancing is more Leo’s speed. Wear comfortable shoes and something sparkly to hold his attention.

Watch Out For: Leo’s ego is huge, and he may have trouble sharing the spotlight. Don’t let him overshadow your accomplishments.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) 

Romance Style: Virgos aren’t terribly romantic, but that doesn’t mean they don’t care. They just aren’t as good as some Zodiac signs at showing it. However, they are reliable and steady–and they tend to have high-achieving jobs, too.

Perfect First Date: You can’t go wrong with the classic “dinner and a movie” date. Just make sure you see the movie first, so you have something to talk about over your meal. It’s likely that Virgo will want to pick both the film and restaurant.

Watch Out For: Virgos can be total control freaks. Establish boundaries early in the relationship, or else you might find him trying to micromanage you.

Libra (September 23-October 22) 

Romance Style: Dating a Libra is pretty drama-free. These kings of compromise are skilled communicators and make for thoughtful partners.

Perfect First Date: A Libra guy will have cultured, refined tastes–and he wants you to know it. He might take you to an art gallery or a screening of a foreign film.

Watch Out For: Libras are notorious for avoiding conflict at all costs. They also can’t make decisions, endlessly debating their options no matter how big or small the choice might seem.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) 

Romance Style: Everything about Scorpio is intense. They are scorching in the bedroom and, deep down, caring and loyal partners. However, they are usually committed to their “bad boy” image and may only let down their guard around select people.

Perfect First Date: Scorpio will want to test you on their first date. He might take you to a dive bar or ask you to hop on the back of his motorcycle to see how you’ll react.

Watch Out For: It takes a lot of effort to break through Scorpio’s shell, so be prepared. They can also be jealous, moody types who hold grudges forever.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) 

Romance Style: You’ll always have fun with a Sagittarius guy. They are easy-going to a fault, love to party and will probably call you by a random nickname for the duration of your relationship. Just don’t expect them to be on time–ever.

Perfect First Date: If you aren’t headed to his favorite bar on your first date, then he probably has an adventure planned. Be prepared for a wild ride, and make sure to bring a jacket because you never know where you’ll end up with a Sagittarius.

Watch Out For: Getting a Sagittarius to settle down might be a lost cause. These guys tend to have serious commitment phobia and will frequently cancel plans if something more exciting comes along.

Capricorn (December 23-January 20) 

Romance Style: Capricorn isn’t always a lot of fun, but he is rock solid. These guys keep themselves fit, keep a clean house and always pay their bills on time. They’re also one of the more marriage-minded signs of the Zodiac, so Capricorns aren’t a bad choice if you’re looking to settle down.

Perfect First Date: Your Capricorn guy will probably plan the perfect date down to the smallest details. He might sign you both up for a pottery or cooking class, then schedule a light lunch at your favorite bistro.

Watch Out For: Capricorns don’t really do “casual.” If you aren’t looking for a commitment, then look elsewhere in the Zodiac for your next date. They also don’t always have the best sense of humor, so that might be a dealbreaker for you.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) 

Romance Style: Aquarius is passionate about so many things, so you might think that they’d be super romantic. You’d be wrong! This sign tends to be emotionally closed off. They’re also more likely to be into non-traditional relationships or date several people casually rather than settling down.

Perfect First Date: Honestly, getting arrested at a climate change protest would probably be Aquarius’s best date ever. He might plan for you to volunteer together or try out a cuisine you’ve never heard of before.

Watch Out For: Aquarius guys don’t like to be tied down, and they hate labels. Expect any conversation about where your relationship is going to be a disaster.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) 

Romance Style: If you want old-fashioned wooing, Pisces is your man. These romantic, dreamy souls will 100% write poetry about you.

Perfect First Date: Pisces will want to surprise and impress you on your first date–and will probably go overboard to do it. He’ll get you a lavish gift or spend too much on dinner. Alternately, he might do something really weird like plan a picnic in a cemetery. You never know with Pisces.

Watch Out For: This sign of the Zodiac can be a bit melodramatic. They experience emotional highs and lows more intensely than most people, which can be exhausting for those around them.
