Dating App Zodiac Sign Astrology Horoscope

Dating can be hard. Make it a little easier with an online dating app customized to your astrological zodiac sign and horoscope that will help you find other singles in your area.

In a day and age where social media is connected to, well, practically everything; it’s no surprise that dating apps are at an all time high in popularity.

Sure, there is still a bit (OK, maybe a lot) of social stigma surrounding online dating, but with how far online dating has come since the 90’s; maybe it’s time to give it a try anyway.

I mean really, if you end up happy in a relationship, who cares if your friends think you took a “desperate” road to get there? Be happy regardless of how you got there.

Frankly, I don’t see what is so “desperate” about an extremely practical approach to dating, anyway.

Who knows, you just might find your special someone online. You can’t meet everyone in person, the world is far too big for that.

Dating is one of the most awkward social interaction human beings are faced with. It’s just awful. Why not make it a little easier by doing some preliminary research via an online dating profile?

I mean, one of the hardest parts about dating is not knowing what the heck to talk about on that oh so uncomfortable first date. 

But by reading someone’s online dating profile beforehand, your talking points are literally outlined right there before the date even starts. Heck yeah!

I won’t lie to you. While I have never dated online myself, I HAVE shamelessly flirted and asked a guy out via Myspace (yeah, it was that long ago).

But, I ended up marrying that guy so you can’t tell me that starting a relationship via the internet doesn’t work out.

Whether you’re looking for a long term relationship (that may or may not lead to marriage) or you’re looking for something more casual; there is a dating app perfect for you out there.

Here is a rundown of the perfect app that matches your zodiac sign's personality type.

Arian's lack of patience, general passion for life, and dislike of any delays in life make the Hinge app ideal. The Hinge app relies on Facebook to connect you to friends of friends.

You'll end up with a personal touch for more thorough research on potential partners with the added benefit of less inappropriate pictures AND it connects you based on shared interests in any easy and fast set of questions.

This app also wont allow unsolicited messages (you can only message someone if you’ve been matched) and the Hinge profiles include a section for what you’re expecting out of a relationship.

All of these features make this app the least likely to waste your time and therefore, make it the ideal app for the Aries lack of patience.

For single gay Aries men, consider Grindr as this app will allow for you to quickly meet up with other gay men in your area.

The perfect dating app for the Taurus would have to be Coffee Meets Bagel because the practical nature of the Taurus makes the lack of “game” features a huge plus.

Tauruses prefers to take a more practical approach to dating and prefers the few quality matches per day offered through this app.

The Taurus doesn’t want to swipe left or right all day (that’s not romantic enough for them), they just want a practical and meaningful approach to dating and this app is the most likely way to get there.

Considering the Gemini’s indecisive, but sociable nature the Plenty of Fish app is the ideal dating app for them as this app is the largest dating service app out there giving the Gemini plenty of “fish” to choose from.

This app also includes a section in the profiles for what you’re expecting our of a relationship, which is ideal for the Gemini since they have a tendency towards nervousness and would do better knowing what to expect.

The Leo’s dramatic, arrogant and slightly self-obsessed nature make the Plenty of Fish app the ideal dating app for them.

The Plenty of Fish app being the biggest dating service app out there means that users are extremely likely to find matches quickly.

Of course, this appeals to the Leo’s lazy nature all while helping the Leo find someone who can love them for some of their less than likable characteristics.

The analytical nature of the Virgo makes the “percentage” matching feature included on the OkCupid app appealing.

OkCupid’s functionality works much like Tinder in the swiping for answers function making it fun and practical at the same time.

Plus, the Virgo’s tendency to being overly critical of themselves makes the OkCupid slogan “Get noticed for who you are, not what you look like.” appealing to them.

Happn appeals to the Libra’s hatred for isolation and social nature as this app connects you to people near you (sounds creepy, I know, but it’s actually super convenient and romantic).

Happn connects you to people that you’ve likely crossed paths with by using GPS to map where you go and connect you to others who have recently been to the same places (so, you’ve already got something in common).

Plus, you can link Happn to your Facebook, Instagram and Spotify to set up your profile and specify what you like doing for potential dates.

Disclaimer: Happn wont display your position to other users in real time and wont allow other users to contact you unless you “heart” their profile. Also, this app allows you to block anyone you suspect of stalking.

Sagittarius’s need for freedom and energy make the “Get Down” or “Get Date” feature included in the Down app, best for the Sagittarius’s needs.

They can either explore their curiosity with a casual hookup (with the “Get Down” feature).

If they’re feeling super curious, they can attempt to explore a more serious relationship with the “Get Date” function.

Although, being a Sagittarius and finding it difficult to be constrained (or lack freedom in any way) they will most likely be more apt to just hookup.

For single gay male Sagittarius’s, consider Grindr as this app will allow for you to quickly meet up with other gay men in your area with little commitment.

Due to the Capricorn’s appreciation for tradition, Match is a great fit considering Match is the most “traditional” dating app given its long standing success rates since 1995.

Plus, Match’s success rates and focus on more serious relationships appeals to the Capricorn’s family oriented nature.

Disclaimer: to get the best out of, it is best to buy a subscription, which will generally cost you at least $21 a month.

The Aquarius’s tendency to run away from having to express their emotions makes Bumble the ideal dating app as Bumble is designed to protect female users from scams, spam and other annoying things by having the female users be the first one’s to reach out to potential mates.

This feature makes this a great dating app for the Aquarius as they can remain aloof and enjoy being alone until they’re ready to take that next step. Bumble is also one of the only apps that explicitly prohibits unwanted material. 

Obviously, this appeals to the Aquarius’s temperamental nature (there’s not a lot more overwhelming than getting random unsolicited images).

Plus, the Pisces’s friendly nature and love of music make this a great app to find friends and concert buddies if a romantic partner can’t be found.
