Every person has their own relationships style—ways in which they thrive when they’re dating someone else. But let’s be honest, sometimes we all struggle with communicating our needs and desires. Even when it could be to our benefit and make our relationships much, much stronger.
Even if you know what type of partner you are, you may be surprised to figure out the things you truly value about love. This is what your zodiac sign can tell you about how you wish to receive love, and how you are able to feel most supported in your relationships.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th):
You’re a bit complicated when it comes to love because you hate being lonely yet you cherish your independence. The ideal partner for you would be someone that values your need for space but also can detect when you need an extra dose of affection. Aquarians want to find people similar to them, which means people who have deep integrity, are intellectual and honest. In love, they also have high standards, and it takes this sign a while to open up to a lover.
An Aquarius deserves someone who is perceptive to these high standards and works hard to impress them.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th):
You seek a very non-conventional love, for your priorities revolve around your artistic sense rather than physical affection. The way you need to be loved is through support of your creations and talents, thus someone who loves you has to be someone who also loves your art. Pisces are eternally creative and sweet by nature. They are vulnerable with their hearts, yet the wisest sign of the zodiac, and they are skilled at adapting to any environment.
The Pisces deserves someone who knows how to surface their inner world, bring their dreams to reality, and share an equally compassionate outlook on life.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th):
As a spontaneous individual, you need a partner that will always keep you on your toes. Your romantic life has to be active, fresh and always moving forward and therefore your partner must up for a challenge at all times.
You like to be first in everything. Sometimes you can be aggressive and play the role of “heroic savior” when it comes to you relationship.
You work hard to get what you want. Therefore, to get the love you deserve, find someone who isn’t afraid of your fiery nature.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th):
You want someone who respects your fear of change, which means that your perfect romance is reliable, steady and honest. Before you get in too deep, your partner has to first prove that he is trustworthy, and from there he must provide a sense of responsibility as his symbol of love. Even though your sign is represented by the stubborn bull, you can be shy when it comes to romance. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus (beauty and love).
I find people under the Taurus sign have the most genuine positive nature in the zodiac, and they deserve someone who knows how to value and match that positivity.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th):
Your inability to make choices is vital to your love life, for you need someone to love you in spite of your poor decision-making skills. You want a love that is rooted in support and patience, and although you’re an affectionate person, you value stability even more.
Geminis can fall in love deeply, but it’s hard because they’re ever-changing. They deserve someone who can keep them on their toes, doesn’t need consistency, and loves adventure. They should ask their partners to understand the ups and downs and back and forths of their personalities, and find someone who enjoys the roller coaster.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd):
Although you’re extremely loyal to those you love, you’re afraid to trust others with your deepest thoughts. Your ideal relationship thrives on communication, which means that you crave a partner who will love you by always giving you new ways to trust him. Cancers are endless abysses of emotion and imagination. As the mother of the zodiac, they have an intrinsic desire to nurture and bring happiness to others. Often, this desire to please makes them vulnerable and easy to wound.
They deserve someone who knows how to calmly deal with their mood swings, and can offer a stable touch to their sensitive world.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd):
Bold and enthusiastic, the lions usually don’t have trouble asking for the love they deserve. Leos rule the heart. They are natural born leaders and fiercely loyal to their loved ones. However, because they are prideful and confident, Leos can fall victim to manipulators. They live for flattery, so anybody who is conniving, but charming can screw them over. Leo, stay away from anyone who doesn’t genuinely compliment or complement you.
You will find the love you deserve in a loyal lover who adores you and puts you in the spotlight where you belong.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd):
You already know that you’re smart and hardworking, and therefore you need someone who recognizes your accomplishments but also helps you slow down. You achieve the greatest happiness with a partner who knows when you need help without you having to ask and can provide you with the assistance you need without getting in your way. They don’t express feelings very readily and, therefore, lovers can be unsure of their intentions.
Virgos will find the love they deserve in someone who knows how to cater to their very specific needs and is loyal enough to stay and draw out the inner light that they keep hidden so well.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd):
Your interest in politics and justice means that you access love through your brain, not your heart. You want someone who loves you by always provoking new thoughts and probing you in order to tap into your intelligence.
They are represented by the scales and apply an everlasting search for balance to their life. They are peacemakers and in love with love. They’re known to fall in love easily and could benefit from being more practical, as they are romantics.
Libras deserve someone who can offer them variety and adventure while simultaneously accepting their need to maintain harmony and balance.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st):
You will not waste your time on a relationship that doesn’t prioritize trust. You need to be loved by someone who acknowledges your jealous side and alleviates your anxieties rather than heightens them. Trust has to come first with you so that you feel comfortable confiding in your partner.
Scorpios deserve someone who is calm enough to handle their extremities, assures them in times of jealousy, and is passionate.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st):
Similar to an Aries, you need excitement in your relationship. If you’re going to be with someone, he has to enjoy traveling and adventure just as much as you do so that he doesn’t fall behind. You seek someone who values a journey rather than one who simply makes time for it.
This sign is known for being restless, independent, and adventurous. They are social and good at maintaining friendships. In the relationship realm, however, it can be quite difficult to woo a Sagittarius. Because they are so open to new experiences and want to live their lives to the fullest, it’s hard for them to settle down. This sign deserves someone who is outgoing and can satisfy their wanderlust, someone who can take them to new places and match their positivity and joy.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th):
Family is everything to you, and so you need someone who thinks of your family as their own. You need a partner that doesn’t just feel like a significant other, but fits into your future. This kind of love is intense, but completely rewarding. In love, Capricorns are stubborn and have a tendency to never give up on someone even after they’ve gone. They have high standards and sometimes try to influence their significant other to fit the image of their ideal partner.
Capricorns deserve someone who’s serious about their feelings, flexible to their needs, and naturally happy to add the sunlight that this sign needs in their life.
