Find out what you're getting yourself into.

Since each zodiac sign has its own unique set of personality traits and quirks, it's helpful to have a guide for what to expect when dating someone. The more information you have from astrology, the better.

Each zodiac sign has its ups and downs when it comes to relationships — no one is perfect, after all, but it's possible to find the sign that's perfect for you.

Whether you're looking at your boo's zodiac sign to find out what you're getting yourself into before fully committing or are simply browsing to check out the best zodiac compatibility for your own sign, here are the pros and cons of dating each zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Pros: Aries are up for any adventure and are very fun. Their energy is contagious and the chemistry between you is AMAZING.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Pros: Libras are the best kissers in the zodiac and you know the stars don't lie. They're also excellent flirts and will make you feel attractive and vibrant.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Pros: When you connect with a Scorpio it's usually at a very deep level and everything is intense — that includes sexually and emotionally. Like everything with a Scorpio, dating is done with passion.

Cons: Intensity: it's both a pro and a con. Scorpios can get so intense and serious that it can be overwhelming and a little scary. Sometimes a hook-up is just that and isn't meant to be a huge, melodramatic deal.
