Why Your Zodiac Sign Gets Stressed Out On A First Date, Per Astrology
Love, Zodiac

Everything about a first date is nerve-racking but this is what burdens your psyche the most.

All great romances have a kickoff point, in which two people have a moment of realization that there may be something special brewing between them. For many, this initial spark happens during a first date.


It can be difficult to gauge how you feel about someone until you meet face to face with them and spend a couple hours alone trying to get to know one another, it's during a first date when you'll understand if there is any chemistry. With the level of pressure first dates have on determining compatible romance, it's no wonder so many of us feel overly stressed or anxious about them.

Everything about a first date is stressful but knowing specifically what you are more likely to get stressed about determined by your unique astrological traits, might help put your worries to rest—allowing you to make a great first impression by being more of yourself.

Whether taking an online relationship offline or trying to get to know an acquittance on a more intimate level, first dates are bound to make you feel anxious and awkward, but you should keep in mind that first dates are meant to be a fun, unwinding, low stakes activity.

What do you have to lose? Enjoy it and if it doesn't work out, no big deal— on to the next one. Here is a list of what stresses you out the most about a first date, according to your zodiac sign per astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You are one of the most confident horoscopes so not much about a first date will stress you out but because you can be headstrong and are always taking a leadership position, who pays for the first date will be your biggest concern.

You are uninterested in the societal gender standard of who should pay for a date, instead, you just want to send the message to your date that you are a self-reliant, self-made person who by no means is looking for or needs a free meal. If your date insists on paying for the first date just let them, and if it goes well you can get the next one.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Ruled by Venus, you’re incredibly sensual. Touching, holding hands, and kissing is very important to you and is the way you show affection. Sex on the first date is not something you shy away from.

Whether or not you and your date are compatible in bed will be your biggest worry on a first date. You like to indulge in all life's little pleasures and sex being the biggest one, you're going to want to know how well they perform straight away before you become too invested. If your date is great in bed it’s important you don't let your possessive personality get the best of you. Give it time and remember they aren’t all yours just yet.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are great communicators and really have a gift for the gab. Your outgoing expressive nature will make it a breeze for you to open up and have plenty to talk about but the same can’t be guaranteed from your date and that stresses you out. What if your nervousness makes you even more of a chatterbox and you end up over talking your date? What if they are unable to keep up with you and find your excessive talking annoying?  

Ask a lot of questions to initiate dialogue and remember to breathe and pause between statements giving your date a chance to chime in and participate. It’s ok that you have a lot to say but not everything has to be said on a first date. Keep the conversation light and work up to the heavier topics once the two of you have had a couple more dates together.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You are always looking toward the future and you love stability. Dating multiple people isn't really your thing, you'd much rather fall in love straight away and start building a family. You are looking for a nurturing, trustworthy partner with whom you can build a nest which is why you will be worried that you won't be able to form a deep bond/connection right away with your first date and that they won’t be husband/wife material.

God forbid they reveal that they don't want kids--because that would be a serious turn off for you. It’s ok to take it slow, it’s only a first date after all—so give it a chance before you start envisioning your walk down the aisle and a white picket fence.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos love drama and passion — in fact, your sign is ruled by it. You will want your first date experience to be modeled after the ones you see on screen, full of drama and romance.

You will stress over the very real possibility that your first date won't be the cinematic romantic escapade that you've envisioned and that your date won't shower you with the compliments and attention that you deserve. Being spoiled is one of your greatest pleasures but be prepared to give it a few tries before your date starts treating you like the royalty you are.   

Although you will be expecting red roses, poetry, gifts, fireworks that light up the sky, and a horse-drawn carriage, you might have to settle for a movie, drinks and mildly stimulating conversation the first time around.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You approach dating in the same way you do life, very methodically and detailed. You can be overly critical of yourself and others and would want your date to put in the same effort on their appearance as you do.

You will stress for hours over what to wear on your first date and whether or not the date is well planned ahead of time. You have high standards and are a bit of a perfectionist; which translates to you sizing up your first date in just the first few minutes.

Cut your date some slack if they aren't perfect. Ultimately you’re really just being hard on yourself; so if you can silence your inner critic your first date will be a lot more laid back and enjoyable.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, your gentle and harmonious disposition means you shy away from conflict and imposing personalities. You are very cooperative and diplomatic and because of this, you will stress over whether or not your date is enjoying themselves and if you are leaving a pleasant first impression on them.

You have a hard time making a firm decision, fearing that the other person might find it “unfair,” so you will be constantly worried that you aren’t sharing the decision making with your first date.

You have a great personality and people are naturally attracted to your charm so don't stress so much about the impression your making and be sure to check in with yourself to make sure you are having an enjoyable time as well as your date.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Suspicious Scorpios have a hard time trusting people right away and your distrust of new people will ultimately be what you stress out about most with a first date. You will question whether or not your date is being genuine and honest with you the entire time —closely scrutinizing and analyzing everything they say and do. Your assertive nature will have you dominating a majority of the conversation but you will also drive yourself crazy over the fact that you have no way of knowing if your date is answering all your questions sincerely or not.

Someone who can keep you guessing may actually be just what a skeptical Scorpio needs in their love life. Remember that it’s ok to let your guard down on a first date so that both of you have the opportunity to feel each other out before making any commitments or decisions about the other right away.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You are a free spirit with a huge appetite for life and adventure and you would want your future partner to share these qualities. You will stress over the possibility that your date will be dry or overly serious and won’t have a sense of humor or adventure.

If your date is someone who likes to schedule and plan everything out ahead of time you might start to feel restricted and nothing bothers a Sagittarius more than feeling tied down and bored. As the zodiac’s optimist, you always see the potential in people to give your date the benefit of the doubt, their reserved behavior might just be from nervousness.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Practical and serious, Capricorn approaches love and dating as a serious business venture. Chances are, you’ve got a 10-year plan for your life, and your partner must forward that agenda. First dates stress you out because there is no guarantee you will get anything back from your investment; your time and effort.

Your goal-oriented nature means you don't mess around in life or love and you will want your first date to share the same ambitions and discipline in their daily lives as you do. As the sign of public image, Capricorns are status-conscious. Whatever you value — college degrees, money, or good looks — your date must possess it in abundance.

As with everything you do, determination is your secret weapon. You’re used to fighting for what you want, so why not aim for a wonderful, enjoyable first date? Just because your date may not check off every box on your list doesn't mean they can’t, in the future, provide you with the relationship you deserve.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you are an intellectual, deep thinker with a strong sense of independence. It’s far more important to you that you can connect with your date on a mental level than anything else. You will worry that your date won't be a good listener and won't be able to keep up with intellectual conversation.

You are a dreamer and a visionary who will approach the first date with a level of expectation, and if the reality is that your date is a different person then you had thought, you will feel discouraged and uninterested.

Ultimately you will want to effortlessly vibe with your date right away— you’re an idealist who believes in true love, and you’re always searching for a best friend and soulmate in the people you date. You have a lot of complex layers and you may feel that nobody can truly understand you but if you open up and give your date a chance they may surprise you.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces people are sensitive and intuitive and can become easily overloaded by crowds or overstimulating environments, so a date that takes you somewhere full of large groups, and a lot of noise may be too overwhelming for you.

It’s often hard to pin you down for too long because you're so keen on escaping away to a place where you can experience some downtime and meditative R + R. If your date isn't going very well you’re going to want to be in a place where you can sneak out and run away without being detected. It’d be a good idea if you suggest the first date location, keep it intimate and romantic. Your inner wanderer will feel much more at ease if you have a surefire exit strategy.
