The Signature Romantic Move You Use To Flirt, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Whenever I try to be romantic with someone, it always feels fake to me.

I think it's because I try wayyyyyy too hard to be flirty or spontaneous when I'm really not that person in all. In reality, my idea of romance is being able to spend time with someone (no matter what it is that we do together) who is both my best friend and my lover.

I'd like to say that I have simple tastes and that a night on the couch holding hands and watching bad movies is enough, but I do like doing crazy things you only ever have the money for maybe once a month.

My point is, romance to me is about being myself and doing things that I think is thoughtful and lovely and fun; NOT what everyone tells you is supposed to be romantic.

If you can't already tell, I am most definitely an Aquarius - AKA someone who hates doing what everyone else is doing.

Everyone does romance differently. Some people like to shower their significant other in gifts while others like to shower their significant other in kisses.

There's no right and wrong way to do romance.

In fact, it's always good to have partners that will have a signature romantic move that's different from everyone else because it not only means that they are actually trying to make an effort when wowing you, but it also means that their signature move will stick with you long into the future, whether you're still together or not.

You know that special someone you always tell your friends about? The one where you start by saying, "Remember when so-and-so lit all those candles and covered the bed in rose petals for me?"

Yeah, having a signature romantic move is like that; something that will knock your socks off and will be remembered forever.

And depending on what your horoscope says about you, your signature romantic move might be something you already do for your partners.

If it's not, it's definitely something you should start doing; you've already got it in you, after all!

Because whether you're a sign who's in touch with their emotions or a sign who loves to be spontaneous, there's a signature move out there for you to try on your sweetheart.

And you can always thank astrology later when it works like a charm.

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

aries zodiac sign signature move relationships

As an Aries, you want pretty much everything in your life to be exciting, which includes your relationship, too. If there was one thing that all of your exes could agree on, it would be that there is never a dull moment when it comes to dating you. It doesn’t matter who you’re dating or for how long, you LOVE keeping the excitement alive.

Your signature romantic move is adventure. Neither of you can sleep at 3 am? Sounds like an excuse to go to a 24-hour diner. Have nothing to do on the weekend and Netflix sounds boring? You’re already scheduling an impromptu road trip to the beach. Your adventures might not always be extravagant, but they do always help you make amazingly romantic memories with your bae.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

If anyone is a serious pro at kissing, it’s you, Taurus. You know how to kiss your boo so well that she’s left weak in the knees. And because you already know how good you are at kissing, you use it as your signature romantic move when you want to sweep someone off their feet. More than just being an awesome kisser, though, you have different kisses for different occasions.

Whether you want to show your significant other how much you missed her as you pick her up from the airport, end your anniversary with a smooch, or show a new someone just how much you like her, you’ve got a kiss for it. You are also very practiced in the many erogenous zones of the body, so you like to make it known that kissing isn’t just for the lips.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You’re a great communicator when it comes to love and relationships, Gemini, but you also know that sometimes the best moments between you and your boo are unspoken. That doesn’t mean you don’t still talk to your S.O. – it just means you find other ways to express how much you care for and love her. When it comes to romantic moves, you like to tap into your creative side.

Your signature move is all about getting your sweetheart to wake up with a smile on her face. You especially love handwritten notes stuck to the bathroom mirror, toaster, and even her lunch, but cute texts throughout the day work just as well. This constant communication between you two reminds her that you’re thinking about her always and that you don’t have to talk to have a heartfelt connection.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You’re a naturally-romantic person, Cancer, but you’ve never been one to go over the top – about anything in life. You know that love is meant to be shared with each other, not so much with the rest of the world. So when it comes to your signature romantic move – PDA – you have some conditions that come with public displays of affection.

Your PDA is somewhat subtle. If anyone were really looking at you two, they would see it, but it’s not in-your-face making out. You show your romantic side by putting your hand on your partner’s back, brushing your fingers against her face, or kissing her forehead. Anything that lets her know that there’s way more where that came from when you get home makes your PDA that much more romantic.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Leo, you love to love, and when it comes to your kind of love, you go all out. A lot of people assume that you’re just about spending money on your boo, rather than the more tender moments in a relationship, but that’s just not true. In fact, you know better than anyone that you can have the best of both worlds when it comes to being romantic.

Your signature romantic move is breakfast in bed. Technically, you are buying ingredients to make breakfast for your partner, but the act of cooking and presenting it to her makes it that much more special. And if it’s not a “breakfast in bed” kind of day, you love making dinner with your significant other because there’s something about doing something together that makes you feel so much closer.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

virgo zodiac sign signature move relationships

As a Virgo, you know how important it is to physically show the people you love that you love them. This doesn’t mean buying your bae gifts or having sex, necessarily, but rather giving her the attention she deserves. There’s a BIG difference between having a conversation with your love in the car, or while you’re watching Netflix, and actually listening and engaging with her.

This undivided attention not only makes her feel loved, but it makes her feel like you really do care what she has to say. You love listening to her when she talks about her day or when she shows you something she’s passionate about her because it’s your chance to really connect with her. Your signature romantic move might be simple, but it’s very effective.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

libra zodiac sign signature move relationships

You know that being with someone you love 24/7 is kind of impossible and unrealistic, so you always try to keep in touch even when you can’t be together, Libra. The best way to do that in your opinion is through text messages and phone calls. You want your significant other to know you’re thinking about her without seeming overbearing or needy.

This is a seriously romantic move because you never realize how thoughtful it is to get a call from your boo at lunchtime or a text when you’re stressed. Whether you jazz up your “I love you” with a few emojis or you just call to let your sweetie know just how special she is to you, Libra, your ability to know when someone needs a little extra love is intuitive and special.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

scorpio zodiac sign signature move relationships

I don’t know what your secret is, Scorpio, but there’s something in your touch that makes every significant – ex and future – crave to be held in your arms. You have a knack for giving your love goosebumps and letting her know that you love her just by touching her. Whether this is with a sensual massage, stroking her hair, rubbing her back, or just holding her hand, nothing says romance more than your touch.

Maybe it’s because you know that so many people just crave physical contact with someone else or that touch is a very often forgotten part of foreplay, but if anyone has mastered the art of touch, it’s you. You also know that touching doesn’t always have to be sexual to bring you closer to someone. In reality, it’s your special way of telling someone you love them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

sagittarius zodiac sign signature move relationships

Sagittarius, you’re a kid at heart, which means that you just want to have fun in all of your relationships, romantic or otherwise. And you also know that sometimes it’s the simple pleasures in life that bring the biggest smile to someone’s face. You’re not a materialistic person, per se, but you do like showering your S.O. in gifts.

What makes giving gifts your signature romantic move is that your gifts always come from the heart. You remember when you first met your sweetheart that she said she loved tea before bed, so you bought her a personalized mug and her favorite tea for your anniversary together. Whatever your boo loves most, it’s not just the presents that make you romantic, it’s the thought and love you put into them.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

capricorn zodiac sign signature move relationships

You’re a traditionalist, Capricorn, which means you know that the fastest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. Your signature romantic move is simple, yet very understated: homemade meals. As someone who grew up in a household that was very family-oriented and welcoming, you know that a good meal with someone you love is better than anything else in the world.

You like cooking for your partner because it not only gives you a reason to really bond with each other, but it also allows you to share some of your favorite foods, wines, and flavors with her. Whether you cook while she talks about herself in great detail or you let her taste everything you make, it’s an intimate moment that’s full of romance and the promise of something more.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

aquarius zodiac sign signature move relationships

As an Aquarius, you’re a one-of-a-kind person who loves bringing someone new and different to your relationships. You’re the one that no ex ever forgets about because you’re always got something interesting up your sleeve. This is why your signature romantic move is surprises, and lots of them. You know that surprising your significant other is something that not everyone does – at least not on a regular basis.

Your surprises range from a gift for your bae when you went on vacation to two tickets to three-day music festival. You want your partner to try anything and everything with you, so it’s not so much the type of surprise that makes it so romantic, but that the surprises take you two all over the place. How many other people can say they checked things off their bucket list they never knew they could do, all because of you?

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

pisces zodiac sign signature move relationships

It seems like a no-brainer, Pisces, but you are a master at date night. Other couples might venture to a tried-and-true restaurant for date night, but you pull out all the stops. You’re not one to make somewhere your “usual” place when you go out with your boo because that seems boring to you. Instead, you use your imagination and creativity to make every date night one for the books.

You might try a picnic under the stars one night and champagne and fruit on a paddleboat the next, but every date night with you is incredibly romantic. You love showing off your love for someone, so no effort is spared when making someone feel special. But you also know that date night doesn’t always have to mean spending money to be special; you can even make a night in feel like the best night in the world.
