(March 21st to April 19th)

A sense of adventure. He wants a promise that you’re not going to slow him down. He knows a lot of girls dream of growing up and settling down and he wants no part of that. A partnership with him needs to be one that will continue to be exciting. Show him you prefer cities over suburbs, that you’re the kind of girl who doesn’t desire a stereotypical ‘adult’ life.


(April 20th to May 21st)

A girl who has his back without fail. Loyalty is the most important personality characteristic to a Taurus. They are very picky about who they hang out with and one of the things they demand is trustworthiness. They will only date someone they know without a doubt will always be on their side. Show him you possess this quality by refusing to gossip about the people you love, he’ll be able to see that you take your relationships seriously.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

A girl who encourages his passions. Gemini love to get excited (and sometimes carried away) by new people, ideas or hobbies. They want someone who encourages them in this regard, not someone who is a buzzkill — or worse, makes them feel like a silly child for loving something they’ll forget about in a week. Show him that you won’t mother him and shame him for having a zest for life, you want him to explore and engage as much as he wants to.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Affection. He wants needs someone who is open with expressing her feelings verbally and physically. He wants to feel completely loved and adored by the person in life who is closest to him. Show him every day through word and action that this is the case.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Adoration. It seems egotistical to say a Leo needs his girlfriend to look up to him, but this is the fundamental quality Leos look for in everyone. People receive love in different ways and none of them are fundamentally shallow. The love language Leos speak is compliments, show them you’re willing to give them what they need in order to feel loved.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

A partner who pulls their own weight. Virgos are smart, hard-working creatures who are good at almost anything they try, even if just through sheer effort. They can be perceived as joyless because they like order, making lists and planning — this is not a good way to view someone in a love relationship, so try not to be this person. Show them that you won’t be another worry to add to their never-ending to-do list but the driving force to help them with some well-earned relaxation at the end of the day.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Someone their friends love. There’s nothing more important in a Libra’s life than their family and friends. They have big social circles and spend a lot of time and energy making sure everyone in it is happy. If you love a Libra, make a great impression on the people they love. There’s absolutely no hope for you if you can’t do this.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Vulnerability. The way to get a real relationship with a Scorpio is to pursue them. They love to be hunters themselves but they are fiercely protective of themselves, they will never be the one to open up first. They need to see you do this and providing a loving, open environment for them to follow suit.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

Passion. Sagittarians aren’t interested in overly serious relationships, at least not at first. They want a light-hearted and passionate partner who wants to discuss their dreams — not reality. Feed them jokes and travel stories, show them you can be the kind of conversationalist he dreams of.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

Ambition. There’s nothing sexier to a Capricorn than ambition. They want to be one-half of a power couple that everyone else looks up to. It’s important to them that they achieve the things in life that they view as success milestones, and it’s total icing on the cake if they can have you right there with them.


(January 21st to February 18th)

Open-mindedness. There are two things an Aquarius cannot date: stupid and closed-minded. Their biggest nightmare is to end up with a sheep who doesn’t think for herself and adopts everyone else’s sense of what a good life is. He wants to discover and decide these things with you. Show him that you can think for yourself and you’re willing to break the mold and do whatever makes the two of you happy.


(February 19th to March 20th)

A girlfriend who is deep. A Pisces cannot date someone shallow, period. They absolutely need someone who cares about having long, meaningful conversations about the big questions in life. Show them that you’re more than capable of thinking about subjects more nuanced than whatever is trending on Twitter. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
