The Kind Of Guy You Should Date, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The Perfect Boyfriend For Each Zodiac Sign In Astrology

Let’s be honest: modern dating is freakin’ tough.

Thanks to social media and dating apps, it’s so easy to connect with others. Sure, that sounds great — it’s much easier (and way less awkward) than going out and approaching strangers in person. But when you think about it, it’s really a double-edged sword. With so many people out there and a seemingly infinite amount of ways to swipe right or left, dating is more overwhelming than ever.

Luckily, astrology tells you all you need to know about the person who’s perfect for you. Knowing your zodiac sign’s personality traits and little quirks can help you hone in on the guy who’ll complement your best (and worst) traits.

Once you have that knowledge, pair it with a dating app that gives you everything you need to find your perfect match. The best dating apps give you a genuine look at someone’s personality. For example, Badoo offers a ton of special features that give you a glimpse into all the little nuances of your potential date’s life rather than expecting you to make a dating decision based on a profile picture alone.

Check out the kind of guy you should date based on your zodiac sign’s traits.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you don’t stop until you’re the best at everything. You thrive on competition and need someone who can keep up (but isn’t afraid of losing). Your competitive nature also makes you impulsive, so any guy who’s down to do things on a whim is the guy for you. Hint: make use of Badoo’s ‘bumped into’ feature to spontaneously meet up with someone who happens to be in the same place at the same time and watch the sparks fly.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

There’s no denying it: Taurus is the most loyal zodiac sign in astrology. This, of course, makes you a great relationship partner because you’re as reliable and devoted as they come. You need someone you can count on at all times, someone who values honesty above all else. Falling victim to a catfish scheme is your worst nightmare. Bypass it by trying a video chat on Badoo, that way you can see exactly what you’re getting.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Because of your dual nature, you get along with just about anyone. You know how to socialize and have fun, but don’t forget about your serious side. However, this twin thing you have going on often leads to indecisiveness, and that makes dating extra hard for you. Too many options freak you out. Narrow it down with Badoo, where you’re able to see not only who’s already liked you but also who’s added you to their favorites. This way, you’ll see who really cares and have an easier time making a decision.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are best known for being emotional and sensitive. It’s probably safe to say you’re the moodiest sign of the zodiac. That’s okay! It just means you’re super loyal and prioritize spending time with those close to you. You’ll need a guy who fits in seamlessly with your group. What better way than to have your own friends vouch for him? A friend of a friend is perfect for you. On Badoo, you can see who your friends know and get the DL on someone before you make the match.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you’re a natural leader. You never doubt yourself — your self-esteem is through the roof. You’re also super creative and love having new ways to showcase just how great you are (did we mention you’re confident?). Put simply, you love showing off. Your confidence is attractive to just about everyone, but regular dating profiles restrict your creativity. Use Badoo’s video profiles to help you show off and exude that confidence in full to find someone who’ll be down for letting you take the spotlight.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, you notice the tiniest details — it’s basically your superpower. You take a very methodical approach to life and analyze every little thing before you jump into it. Naturally, this makes you a little serious. Use the verified profile feature on Badoo to know you’re safe when chatting with someone new. That way, you can feel relaxed enough to find someone who’ll help you lighten up a bit.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra’s sign is the scale, and it couldn’t be more accurate. You’re a stickler for fairness and harmony. A relationship where both people give their all is the only relationship you’re interested in. You need someone who’s able to go 50/50 with you. Badoo lets you know who visits your profile, so you can see who's putting in the same amount of effort as you. No more one-sided relationships!

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are extra passionate about everything in their life. You definitely aren’t afraid to express your emotions. However, that’s not without its downsides. You struggle with jealousy in relationships as you sometimes deal with trust issues, which are hard to overcome in a world of online dating where catfish abound. On Badoo, you’re able to verify your profile and photo, making it much less likely that you’ll fall victim to scammers. Now let those walls down and find a guy who’s looking for someone as passionate as you!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Curious and energetic, Sagittarius is down for almost anything. But you also love your freedom and can’t deal with being boxed in. Clingy people are your worst enemy — they’re just so suffocating! That’s why dating apps sort of freak you out. Once you’re a match, what’s to stop him from messaging you over and over again (even if you don’t reply)? Badoo has a two message limit so if you don’t respond after two messages, he can’t keep bombarding you. You need to date a guy who knows when you need your space and isn’t afraid to give it to you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Though Taurus often gets a bad rep for stubbornness, you have a bit of a stubborn streak too! Capricorn is the master of self-control and therefore you find it difficult to express your emotions. You need someone who’s okay with you always being right (even when you’re — gasp! — not), and who can see the cute mushy side hiding underneath that serious exterior. Take advantage of Badoo's fun chat features like stickers and gifts that allow you to express yourself better than words can.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you’re a deep thinker and do everything with purpose. You expect others to do the same, and absolutely can’t stand empty or broken promises. Don’t get caught in a catfish situation — it’s your worst nightmare. Find someone who proves you can trust them at all times from day one with chat verification on Badoo, which restricts the dating pool to people who’ve verified their profiles. No fakes!

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You’re one of the most intuitive signs of the zodiac, which makes your relationships last. You can always sense what others are thinking. However, you’re also selfless and tend to trust people a little too much. This makes you super vulnerable, especially on traditional dating apps where not everyone is who they say they are. Make use of Badoo’s selfie request feature to instantly see an up-to-date, real photo to find a guy who’d never take advantage of you.
