These matches are made in the stars.

When someone asks who your ideal partner is, or who you would most like to date, what do you usually say?

And no, unfortunately, Rihanna doesn't count in this situation.



For many of us, the answer is always something that includes wanting someone to take care of us, someone to make us feel young, or a best friend.

But is that really the answer you want to give when someone asks you that question? Probably not.

At least in my case, my answers would have to be wanting someone who makes really good pasta and can give me some crazy good sex, and I'd be happy.

If we were all a little more honest with ourselves — and others — this is what our real answers would look like.

You definitely don't have to be profound when you think about your ideal date. Let's be honest, it's the little things in a relationship that matter the most.


Take the Tumblr blog DateABoySuggestions, for example.

This blog is full of suggestions of the type of person you should date, including everything from dating someone with an Instagram page full of memes to someone who kisses your forehead after sex.

So while these suggestions are about the little things, they definitely remind you that whoever you date should make you feel special and happy to be with them.


And depending on what your zodiac sign is, your ideal match might be more obvious than you think. (Because zodiac compatibility is a REAL thing, people!)

1ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

aries zodiac signs dating personality

Aries should date someone who always says “yes” to whatever she has planned. Want to rent a boat and get stranded somewhere together? Spontaneous weekend trip to the nearest beach? Staying up all night to watch the worst horror movies because we’re both too lazy to go somewhere? Yes, yes, yes!

Aries will probably do all of these things on her own anyway, but having someone she adores by her side to share the fun is what she really wants. To have someone who isn’t used to doing the things Aries usually does is also a perfect match for her because she gets to open their eyes to something totally new and fun.

2TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

taurus zodiac signs dating personality

Taurus needs someone who will laugh at her cheesy jokes every time. Taurus is already a pretty romantic person, but she likes doing things that not everyone does, including telling jokes that are so cheesy that they’re actually adorable.

Taurus should also date someone who will let her cook for them. Being a lover of food herself, nothing says “happiness” to a Taurus than cozying up with a movie and a homemade meal.

3GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

gemini zodiac signs dating personality

Gemini’s ideal partner is someone who knows how to read her mind. Because she is so indecisive all the time, having someone around who can help her choose between takeout or going out is a godsend. Plus, having pretty much anyone who won’t get impatient when it really does take her an hour to decide what she wants to do over the weekend makes her feel valuable and loved.

While Gemini does enjoy going out and having a good time, she also likes being able to stay in and be lazy. It all sounds pretty much the same, but Gemini really just wants someone to let her be completely herself (and also make all the decisions).

4CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

cancer zodiac signs dating personality

Cancer is a very emotional, intuitive person, which to some people also means “pushover.” Cancer should date someone who makes her get out of her comfort zone and teaches her to think about herself for once.

Cancer loves being the one to take care of others, but she often forgets that she has needs, too. Someone who can teach her how to be a little more selfish and open to new things (like eating squid or day drinking) is the perfect match for her.

5LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

leo zodiac signs dating personality

Leo is perfect all on her own, but no one ever said she didn’t also love having someone around to worship the ground she walks on. Besides needing someone to obey her every wish (kinky!), Leo should date someone who makes her feel like the glamorous movie star she already thinks she is.

This means taking her out to nice restaurants and even nudging the person next to you in line at the movies and saying cute things like, “can you believe she’s with me?” It might make her blush but it’ll also definitely get you laid… I mean, make her really happy.

Your Ideal Match: Cancer

6VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

virgo zodiac signs dating personality

All Virgo wants in life is for people to understand her, even without words. And even though she’s incredibly intelligent, she still hasn’t figured out how to clone herself (yet), which means finding someone with the same mindset and values as her is the next best thing.

Virgo craves this unspoken bond that you only find in soulmates. She wants a partner who will be her twin and partner in crime. Once she finds that, no one else in the world will matter to her.

7LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

libra zodiac signs dating personality

Libra should date someone who will travel the world with her. She is in desperate need of going somewhere totally new and what better way to do that than with someone who will want to eat and shop their way across the world?

Libra doesn’t often get out of her comfort zone, so whenever she meets someone who is thrilling and totally unlike her, she latches onto them fast. Her ideal partner is someone who is both romantic (when she wants to do some seriously gross make out sessions) and eager to try something crazy (like hang gliding or rock climbing). She might not say it, but Libra wants to try everything at least once.

8SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

scorpio zodiac signs dating personality

Scorpio frequently gets stereotyped into one of those over-the-top actresses you see in a soap opera. Very passionate and fun, but also a little too much for people’s tastes. Scorpio needs to date someone who will get her out of the soap opera and into real life, which is often pj parties and lazy Sundays.

When Scorpio looks for a partner, she often searches for someone to compete with, someone she has to keep up with. In fact, she should be looking for someone who can calm her down. I’m not saying she needs to be boring, but life doesn’t have to be crazy all the time, no matter how much she wants it to be.

9SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

sagittarius zodiac signs dating personality

If I can quotes Ja Rule for a second, all Sagittarius needs in life is a down ass b*tch. This is someone who is down for absolutely whatever because if you ask Sag what she wants to do this weekend, that’s exactly the answer you’re going to get.

She loves being surrounded by people who love fun because Fun is her middle name (no lie, go ask her). Anyone who can surprise her with tickets to the next summer music festival and take her to carnivals is the perfect person for her to date.

Your Ideal Match: Gemini

10CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

capricorn zodiac signs dating personality

Capricorn should date someone who argues with her. Sound weird? I’ll explain. At some point in her life, Capricorn is going to get fed up with everyone and everything; it’s inevitable. What she needs is someone who will let her be angry or sad, or whatever she needs to be, without judgment.

Anger isn’t Capricorn’s only personality trait, but she CAN (and does) go from 0 to 100 really fast. The one redeeming quality about her crazy mood swings is that it makes for amazing angry sex, which we all know, is the best kind of sex to have.

11AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

aquarius zodiac signs dating personality

Aquarius should date someone who will dare her to do anything. Let’s be honest, Aquarius will already do pretty much anything, but having someone around to push her limits will not only make for a great story later on, it will also make Aquarius enjoy life a lot more.

Whether this means trying one of those crazy sex swings (and subsequently going to the emergency room with a broken bone) or ordering the weirdest thing on the menu at a new restaurant, Aquarius should date someone who is up for anything.

Your Ideal Match: Aries

12PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

pisces zodiac signs dating personality

Pisces should date someone who makes an awesome pillow fort. Pisces is all about enjoying the best things in life, but if you can do that AND be in a pillow fort full of snacks and movies, then all the better! She might go on and on about finding her knight in shining armor, but in reality, she just needs someone with matching pajamas and a good pizza place on speed dial.

In addition to all the cozy essentials, Pisces should date someone who will treat her like a princess. Someone who understands that she needs cuddles and kisses, but also lets her be a little spoiled. And if she gets too spoiled rotten? She’s always down for a good spanking.

Your Ideal Match: Leo
