The constant butterflies can be a fun, refreshing feeling, but after a while they get frustrating. Does he like me back? Am I making it too obvious? Was he flirting or just being friendly? There are SO many questions running through the brain.

The truth is, most men are flirts, sometimes to the point where they don't realize how much their flirting is affecting you. Of course, there are really great men out there who only flirt and put in the effort when they're truly interested. Others, of course, flirt almost subconsciously like it's second nature to them. 

This is why it's so hard to know whether his zodiac sign is genuinely flirting because he likes you, or if he's just looking for some attention. 

It can be really difficult to figure out which type of guy the one you're crushing on is, especially if you're just getting to know them. Luckily, we have our trusty horoscope sign traits to help us out with this one. 

There are 12 zodiac signs in astrology, and each one has characteristics and traits that make them stand out among the others. You can easily figure out whether or not your guy is flirting with sincerity just by knowing his zodiac sign.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is very passionate about everything in his life, including his relationships. He's confident in who he is, and he loves having something, or someone, to chase after. This means that he's naturally a very flirty person. In fact, he prefers to surround himself with attractive women that he can flirt with on a regular basis. 

This makes it very difficult to tell if Aries is flirting with sincerity, or just looking for some female attention. The truth is, 9 times out of 10, he's probably just seeking attention. If you want to know if Aries is being genuine, you should just come right out and ask, he will be honest with you. 


TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, which is known as the planet of love. This means that Taurus achieves the best romantic relationships because love is naturally within him. Although he is quick to fall in love, this doesn't mean he will flirt with anyone who gives him the time of day.

Taurus takes his relationships very seriously, and he makes for a reliable partner. If he's flirting with you, you can guarantee that he genuinely means it. He doesn't like when people waste his time, so he will never waste yours. If Taurus is flirting with you, he's ready to take the next step in your relationship.  


GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini has a very quick-wit, so he often relies on his sarcasm when it comes to flirting. If you're the type of person who has a witty sense of humor as well, Gemini is going to feel more comfortable expressing his personality, and he's going to flirt with you.

The confusing thing about Gemini is that sometimes it's hard to tell if he's flirting or just joking around in a friendly matter. What's important to remember is that Gemini usually doesn't flirt for attention, so if you think he's flirting with you, flirt back! You'll quickly learn if he's into you by the way he responds to you flirting.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is a very emotional person. He wants his relationship to be romantic and sentimental, and he makes it known. When Cancer flirts, he does it in the most romantic way imaginable. He compliments you, pays attention to the small details, and always makes sure you wake up to a good morning text. 

Sometimes it might seem like Cancer is flirting for attention because, well, he's good at it. It can seem like he has a lot of experience with flirting, but really he's just that into you. If Cancer is putting in the effort to make you feel appreciated, he's being sincere.  


LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo is one of the most fun and attractive people to be around. He's always making sure you're having a great time, and truthfully, he's really good at making people feel special. Unfortunately, he's not always doing this in the most sincere way. 

Leo has a lot of suitors, and he's VERY good at keeping up with each and every one of them. In fact, he relies on flirting with several people in order to feel confident, loved, and admired. This is why flirting with Leo can be potentially dangerous. If you want to know if he's flirting sincerely, you need to pull away and hold back some of the attention he's so used to getting. If he comes crawling back, wondering why you're acting so distant, you'll know he's into you. 


VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is an introvert, which makes it really difficult for him to flirt in the first place. He's overly critical of himself and thinks that even the smallest gesture will be too forward. The truth is, even when Virgo does step out of comfort zone and flirt, it's barely noticeable. 

It's easy to tell if Virgo's flirting is sincere because he'll only flirt if he's really interested in you and a potential relationship with you. He would never flirt for attention because he generally hates attention of any kind. If Virgo is flirting, he definitely likes you, so you should go ahead and flirt back.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Similarly to Taurus, Libra is also ruled by the planet of love, making him the constant target of Cupid's arrow. Libra absolutely HATES being alone, so he's always on the hunt for a girlfriend to spend his time with. Yes, he is quite the attention seeker, but this doesn't mean his flirting is misleading. 

Libra might be the kind of guy to chase after love, but he's not one to lead on someone that he isn't seriously interested in. There's nothing Libra appreciates more than fairness and loyalty, so if he's flirting with you, his intentions are pure. It might seem like he's only seeking attention for his own benefit, but he really does like you. 


SCORPIO (October 23 -November 21)

Scorpio is the most passionate of all the signs, and he achieves intense emotional connections in his relationships. This sometimes makes it seem like he's quite the player, and that he's probably not looking for a serious relationship, just someone to hook up with when he wants attention. 

The truth is, Scorpio is actually very dedicated when it comes to relationships, he's just not often one to admit that. It might be scary to fall for Scorpio because he is so captivating and mysterious, but I promise, he's not as intimidating as he seems. If Scorpio is taking the time to express emotion and flirt with you, he's being genuine. 


SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is one of the most positive and fun people to be around, and this is what makes him so attractive. Truthfully, Sagittarius is a sweetheart, but this is what you need to watch out for.

He might not do it intentionally, but Sagittarius is going to lead you on. He flirts so effortlessly that he doesn't even realize he's doing it, and he will say just about anything to make you happy, even if it ends up being a broken promise. Sagittarius loves attention, so flirting is like a second language to him. He might not mean to hurt you, but if you're flirting with a Sagittarius, keep your guard up.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is naturally a very serious person, he often doesn't take time out of his life to flirt if he doesn't think it's worth it. Everything he does is done in a practical matter, so fooling around and flirting with women isn't usually something he pencils into his schedule.

If Capricorn is flirting with you, consider it a blessing. He will only spend time flirting with a woman if he truly has feelings for her, which makes it very easy to know what his intentions are. Capricorn is not an attention seeker, so if he's flirting, he must really like you.  


AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius has great social skills, and he should probably win an award for how capable he is of small talk. He isn't necessarily outgoing, but he loves a stimulating conversation, and he's great at connecting with people. 

The thing is, his ability to connect tends to be on a friendship level. When it comes to relationships, Aquarius runs from any sort of emotional expression. If Aquarius has been flirting with you, there isn't a doubt in my mind that he's doing it with sincerity. Aquarius will only put himself out there if he really likes someone, attention means nothing to him. 


PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is the type of guy who needs a girlfriend at all times, which in truth, makes him a flirt. He loves expressing emotion, romance, and passion. This means that he's often on the prowl for someone new to talk to.

Because Pisces is so flirty, he can sometimes come off as insincere. In reality, he's a very selfless person, and would never intend to hurt anyone that he's flirting with. If you think Pisces might be flirting with you for your attention, the best thing to do is come right out and ask. There's a good chance that he's actually very interested in you.
