This Is How He Expresses Romance, According To His Zodiac Sign

Love, Zodiac

There's no one way to being romantic.

Do you have a romantic soul or is there a part of you that loves love?

There’s something about being in love or thinking of about being in love that’s intoxicating. You want it if you don’t have, and if you do have it, you want to make sure that you keep that flame alive. But it's even more amazing when your partner is more romantic than you are.

When someone is described as romantic, it means they're conducive to or characterized by their expression of love.

We experience love in our own unique ways, and the type of romantic that we are is also distinctively us. You probably demonstrate your love differently than your partner and you hope that they’re clued in enough to realize that it’s what you’re doing.

They might feel best when they're communicating their love by saying sweet things or texting you with loving messages throughout the day. Maybe they do things for you that you'd never think of doing for yourself.

The best way to love anyone is without judgment or conditions — this is the purest way to love and it may be the most challenging. It’s difficult not to focus on the flaws of others or ourselves, to see them as a positive thing and not as a huge imperfection that must be endured.

When you show someone that you love them and make them feel loved, it’s one of the best gifts you can give them and yourself. Because when we love, we feel a happiness that comes directly from our heart and soul and it radiates from us.

You may be very familiar with the type of romantic you are but confused by your lover's gestures and demonstrations of love. Here’s the kind of romantic he is, according to his zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

He's a risk-taking romantic. He doesn't always know exactly how you're going to respond to one of his romantic gestures but he does it anyway. It could be something that's completely out of the box that you may not understand at all, but know that when he does it, he only wants to surprise and delight you. He's adventurous and so enthusiastic that even when his romantic action falls flat you're charmed that he tried to do something so unique in the first place.

He's a traditional romantic in that the way he expresses his feelings of love through beautiful things such as flowers, art, and beautifully plated food. He tries to seduce by engaging in all of your senses, especially the sense of touch as he's very sensual and hands-on. He's very likely to offer to give you a full body massage or to pamper you in any way that he can.

He's a Shakespearean romantic. He wants to court you with his words. He's not above writing you a song, a poem, or even a romantic text. When the two of you are in a deep discussion or even just talking, there is a bonding of souls and you are joined together in a very special way. As William Shakespeare said, "Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind." How true that is for your romantic man.

He's a loving romantic and shows you he loves you through the caring way that he treats you. He isn't being a jerk when he holds the door for you or pulls out your chair for you; he knows that you're fully capable of doing it yourself but this is his way of showing how deeply he cares about you. He respects you but needs to express his love with old-fashioned gestures and actions.

He's a heroic romantic and wants to show you how he loves you in bold and courageous ways. Can anyone still be dashing these days? If so, that's how he wants to be for you. It isn't just about saving you — you can do that for yourself. It's showing you that he's there for you always and ready to fight for you in the noblest ways possible. If he could, he would be your prince or your knight in shining armor, but more than likely he'll just try to do what he can to make you happy.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

He's a know-it-all romantic and tries to impress you with his intellectual prowess. He knows you're smart but he can't resist trying to teach you something or to show off how intelligent he is. He's not great at flirting or being romantic so the best thing he can do is prove that he's smart and hope that you'll be impressed by his big brain.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

He's a baller romantic. He knows the exact right thing to say, but more than anything he knows how to flirt. If you need to be complemented or given an expensive gift, he knows and delivers with it. He's a natural born player and learned all the right moves early. But just because he's charming and flirty, that doesn't mean that he's not sincere or that he doesn't love you madly — he does, you just might not be the only one in his life.

He's a fiery romantic as his love is never lukewarm but red hot. He's passionate and his love can be all consuming. He's the hero of every romance novel — complicated, intense, and slightly dangerous. When he loves, its depth can be scary and he doesn't take love lightly. Don't toy with his heart or you'll definitely find yourself on the receiving end of his wrath. His love burns and the flame can last for longer than you could even imagine.

He's a funny romantic and tries to win you over with his wit. If you think humor never got somebody in bed or got them to fall in love, you'd be wrong. Humor is extremely sexy and is a turn-on, and he uses his ability to make you laugh as a way to show you his love and to keep you in love with him. When you're feeling down, he tries to fix it with funny.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

He's an unpredictable romantic. You think you have him all figured out. He'll remember all the important dates and anniversaries but then sometimes he'll surprise you with flowers just because it's Tuesday or you'll come home and he's made dinner. You'd never think that someone as stable and dependable as he is would keep you guessing but he does. Sometimes he just wants to do something nice for you.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

He's an unemotional romantic. He's not comfortable spilling his guts, even when it comes to love, so he's going to show you he loves you in innovative and unique ways. The problem is that it's not always obvious that he's being romantic. You might not think that making a cash donation to a humanitarian cause in your name is a romantic gesture but to him it is. He's combining two things that he loves: helping to improve the world and you.

He's a compassionate romantic. The best way he knows to show you that he loves you is to be there for you — listening, giving advice when you ask for it and generally supporting you. You know that you can be yourself and that he'll love you without judgment. He's sensitive to your feelings because he knows how he feels as well. He tries not to be too vulnerable but sometimes his heart is too open and he must express his love in the best way that he can, directly and honestly.
