How To Date A Sagittarius

How To Date A Sagittarius

The Sagittarius, born in November 22 – December 21, is known as the independent, almost flighty sign of the Zodiac. Sagittarians are bold and always truthful. They will say what is on their mind, even if it crushes your very soul. After they crush your soul, they’ll apologize, and move onto whatever is next on their list of things to do.

First, it’s best if the Sagittarius doesn’t realize you’re dating. As soon as they realize they’re in a relationship, they’re going to have a small freakout, and they’ll back away and say something like, “Hey, I’m just having fun.” They’re never really “looking for anything” so the best way to get into a relationship with a Sagittarius is to have it sneak up on them.

When the Sagittarius needs space, you better give the Sagittarius some space. I’m talking, like Gravity space. Be George Clooney and slowly float away. Let them be Sandra Bullock. Eventually, they’ll probably want you back, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they need you back. They can figure out how to get to Earth all on their own, but they may want a drinking companion on the way. That’s when you get your E.T. thermos full of booze and help them out. Why an E.T. thermos? I don’t know. Ask a Sagittarius.

If the Sagittarius doesn’t believe that the two of you are compatible signs, it’s going to be even more difficult to convince them otherwise. You have a better chance of dragging Homer Simpson away from an all-you-can-eat donut buffet, and Homer Simpson isn’t even a real person. That’s how difficult it is. Sagittarians can be very stubborn, but unlike the Scorpio (hi), their stubbornness doesn’t come from being a total asshole (sorry, fellow Scorps) – it comes from their bizarre belief in an all-knowing universe.

How You’ll Do Everything Based On Your Zodiac Sign includes an exhaustive analysis of each sign’s personality. You’ll learn which high school clique represents them (Pisces are the cool art kids), who would get eaten first in a scary movie (Gemini, obviously) to how each sign prefers to say ‘I love you’ (for Taurus, it’s with good food). Alternating between silly, sweet, and serious, this book is filled with deep dives into the mind of everyone whose birth chart you can get your hands on.

The Sagittarius loves to use winky faces while texting. Sagittarians and winky faces go together like Olivia Newton-John and skinny leather pants. And also like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong.

Don’t be surprised if the Sagittarius has a sudden urge for a road trip, and if they just take off without you. They’ll mumble something about “life” and “crystals” and get in their car with a bag of sandwiches, and get the hell out of there.

While on a date with a Sagittarius, again, it’s best to pretend that it isn’t a date. Try and match their nonchalance. Sagittarians take it easy. So easy it’s amazing they’re not constantly falling over. Take them somewhere stimulating, or they’ll get bored, and they’ll let you know. In this way, dating a Sagittarius is kind of like babysitting. But if you keep at it, you may find a partner who excites you with their adventurousness, calms you with their optimism, and thrills you with their wanderlust. Just make sure they don’t leave without you.

And if they do leave without you, remember: be George Clooney. That’s good advice in any situation. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
