If an Aries guy really cares about you, he’ll pause to consider your comfort zone. Typically super independent, they rush into an adventure or a challenge with a “you snooze, you lose” type attitude. But when an Aries cares about someone, they make room for them and plan around the fact that just about everyone on Earth is slightly more cautious than they are. You’ll be included in event planning and they’ll check in with you throughout whatever you’re doing to make sure you’re comfortable.

There are a lot of ways to tell a Taurus doesn’t love you — they’re very judicious about how they spend what little affection they are willing to give. If they open up to you and let themselves be vulnerable when they don’t have to, that’s how you know a Taurus really likes you. They’ll make plans with you, invite you into their precious home space, and treat you like you’re inner circle.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
If a Gemini guy really likes you, he’ll stick around through a long period of time. Geminis have tons of passion, but it tends to come at the expense of focus. It takes a big hook to keep them interested in the same thing week after week when there are so many other bright shiny objects to chase after. If it’s been months and he’s still consistent in the attention he gives you, that’s when you know a Gemini guy has it for you.

Cancers tend to be very loving and nurturing toward lots of people, so you have to figure out if they are showing you a special kind of attention. For Cancers, this tends to involve letting you into the very center of their being: their home. They’ll take you to meet their family, try to make your home more comfortable and inviting for you both, and cook for you.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
Leos love praise and attention from everyone, so it isn’t necessarily special if they preen or perform for you. Special is in the way they go about it. Do they just want you to think they’re attractive? Or do they want you to praise them on their ability to keep a nice home, their relationships with their family, or anything else that screams long term material? If they really like you, they’ll want the right kind of attention from you.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
Virgos are the best at upgrading everyday life. They know the little hacks to make their own lives run seamlessly so they can enjoy success and leisure. If a Virgo likes you, they’ll turn this trait onto you. All of a sudden they’re helping you automate your bills and signing you up for a CSA box. They make a genuine effort to upgrade your life.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Libras have amazing social skills so its easy to feel like they’re interested in you. But beware, more than any other sign Libras plant false flags where they aren’t really interested. They just want people to feel good! What separates out the people a Libra is really interested in is that they’re willing to go through a conflict with you. Libras hate conflict, but they’re smart enough to know its necessary in any healthy relationship, so if they bring up some uncomfortable truths and try to sort them out with you, its real.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
More than any other sign the old adage is true: if he likes you, you’ll know he likes you. Scorpios aren’t shy or reserved, they believe in taking a risk and making a stand. If you want to know you’re not just another notch in their bedpost, wait for them to be a little bit selfless. This is the last thing a Scorpio wants to do, it comes very unnaturally for them — but that’s how you know you mean a lot to them.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
Sagittarians will flirt with anyone for the fun of it. They are hunters and they love the chase. You’ll know you’re special when they drop the pretense of the chase: they talk about the future with you, they’re unafraid of an Instagram pic that looks like a #coupleselfie, they show up for the events that aren’t necessarily fun for them.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
They’ll do something sweet. Capricorns are zero percent sentimental by nature, so if they are doing something sappy, they truly believe in the cause. Bonus points if this plan involves them being less than the put-together perfect facade-bot they like to portray.
(January 21st to February 18th)
While Aquarians love to understand the emotions of others, they are slow to express their own. They’ll ask deep questions of anyone and everyone — but they’ll only answer for those they deem worthy. When one has real feelings for you, he will show you the things that are important to his heart. He’ll be vulnerable, he’ll communicate — you’ll feel like there’s no barrier between the two of you. For this guy, being on the same philosophic page is extremely important. Your conversations will be deep and probing.
(February 19th to March 20th)
You’ll be their muse. Pisces are a deeply creative sign. Whatever your man’s craft is, you’ll be at the center of it. It may not be as literal as his writing love poems about you — maybe he names a batch of his homebrew after you. But with this man, know that his art (whatever form it takes) will always belie where his heart is.
