This Is What You Need In A Romantic Partner, Based On Your Zodiac Sign



(March 21st to April 19th)

A common misconception about you is that because you’re more on the dominant side, you want a submissive partner. Not true! You’re attracted to strong people. You want someone to challenge and keep up with you, not simply someone who acquiesces to your every need.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You’re cautious when it comes to love and move slowly. You won’t be the one diving head first. Rather, you like to tip toe into your feelings. You can’t be rushed at it either. For you, building a solid friendship is key. You’re looking for someone incredibly trustworthy and safe. If someone is too aggressive or tries to push you into something before you’re ready, you’ll retreat.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You need someone who isn’t overly sensitive. Your nature can be confusing to some, and anyone who gets offended easily will have a hard time understanding you. Your ideal match is someone witty and with a thirst for exploring. You’re excited by the thought of someone you can have unlimited adventures with.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You prefer to be in more affectionate relationships. You like your partner to actively show their love – be it through physical actions or verbal affirmation.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You’d love to date a bookworm. You often escape into literary worlds and the idea of having someone to share that with is incredibly appealing. Ideally, you’d find someone who encourages you to come out of your shell while also respecting your introverted tendencies. A real yin and yang.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

(December 22nd to January 20th)

Responsibility and accountability are two huge things you look for in people. You are goal oriented and don’t want to waste your time on someone childish.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You’re instantly turned off by materialism or overt narcissism. The right person will stimulate your mind with philosophical conversations.


(February 19th to March 20th)
