How To Make A Man Want You, By Zodiac Sign

Sometimes you get the attention of a man you like easily, and then you lose it.

Sometimes that interest leaves quickly because certain zodiac signs need adventure, like a Sagittarius.

Others prefer change, such as an Aries. Basically, each horoscope wants love to remain interesting. 

The chase is a big part of the dating world. Without the chase, a lot of relationships wouldn't happen.

I know that sounds totally fake, but guys really do like being part of a little cat and mouse game.

If he feels like it's way too easy to snag you, then he's probably going to lose interest pretty quickly. Guys like knowing that they have to work hard to get you to notice them, let alone get you to actually be interested in them enough to want to date them.

For a guy, the chase is a challenge that intrigues him. And if you do it right, he'll be chasing you for a long time before he really ever gets to know the real you.

Depending on how you like to meet guys, having to engage in this chase might seem really childish, like you're on the playground again playing tag and you want your crush to tag you, but still kind of make him stay in love and work to catch you.

I know, I know. But you can't totally deny that you hate the chase yourself, either. It's just part of dating, after all! And while you might not be a game player when it comes to the dating game, you can still like making him sweat a little.

Do you like him? Are you ever going to meet him in person or is this just an Instagram flirt? I guess he's just going to have to play the game and find out!

Let's be real for a second here. You can make the chase great – you can really get him interested in doing the leg work and getting to know you in the process.

But the chase can unfortunately only work for so long. After a while, he's going to start wondering if you're actually serious or if you're just leading him on. And it'll be up to you to make that decision. Do you want something serous with him or are you ready to move on to the next person?

If you make him chase you for too long, he's going to get bored and ditch. And you also want to make sure that your guy is chasing you for the RIGHT reasons – not just because YOU'RE bored. Because then that just isn't fair.

If you want to get a guy to chase you because you're actually interested in him, you need to figure out what you want from him. If you're actually interested in the person, then you'll actually be able to make something of the chase.

Plus, it always helps to look to astrology for some help, too. Keep reading to learn how to make guys chase you, by zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're not one to give up control just for a guy, Aries, but you can certainly make him think you'd give up being the boss just for him. Guys like knowing that you want to listen to them and take their lead – even if you're really your own boss (he doesn't have to know the truth).

Let him think he's the boss by letting him make the decisions. The key here is to be stealthy so that he doesn't know for sure that you're the one who's still in charge.

On that same note, it's important to show him that you ARE capable of making your own decisions when it counts. If you're too passive, he'll think you don't care and move on.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You love dating, Taurus, because it's a way to get to know someone new and to possibly find The One. You don't always date with the thought that this person could be the man who stays with you forever, but you do tend to get pretty excited when you start crushing on someone new.

If you want the guy to chase you, you have to tone down those lovey-dovey vibes of yours... just at first. Less is definitely more when it comes to the chase. Don't text him super long paragraphs or spam him Twitter page by tagging him in everything cute you see.

Save the good conversation for when you two see each other in person. Knowing that there's much more than your texts reveal will keep him hooked on you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

It's time to use your power of social media to really get him to chase you, Gemini. You already have a very strong presence online, and now you can use that presence to show him that you're in demand.

The best way to get guys to chase you is to show them that they're not the only ones in your life. Share pictures of yourself having fun on Instagram with your friends and potential boyfriends to prove to him that he's gotta work if he wants to snag you.

Playing a game of cat and mouse will keep him interested until you're ready to get serious.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, you have an addiction – an addiction to taking acre of literally everyone in your life. Don't apologize, I know you can't always help it, but you can try to take it down a few notches so that the guy who's chasing you stays interested.

The best way to keep the guys chasing you is to not be his knight in shining armor. He doesn't need you to be his problem solver and shoulder to cry on ALL the time – that's what his friends and family are for!

When you make yourself too available, you run the risk of him taking advantage of you until he gets bored with you. Sure, you can really be a good partner, but he has to make the effort before he can really see that.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

If you want to get a guy to chase you, Leo, you need to be on top of your confidence game. That means showing him that you don't need anyone to make you happy because you can be a bad ass all on your own (even though you DO want him).

Whenever you walk into a room, keep your chin held high and walk with purpose. Not only with this show him that you're comfortable in your own skin, but it will give him a chance to see just how confident you really are before even speaking a word to you.

Even if you have to fake it 'til you make it, exude as much confidence as possible.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

One thing that many guys seem to think is that if they show you even the slightest bit of attention that they are then entitled to whatever they want from you. Ummm, unless he puts a ring on it, that's not going to happen, is it?

Virgo, you are a strong believer in preferring to be single than being with someone you don't care about. Because of that, you are the perfect zodiac sign to make him wait patiently for you so that he knows that you're not messing around.

When he realizes that he can't just take you for granted, he'll make more of an honest effort to woo you. You can wait a looong time – can he?

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Flirting is a noncommittal way of showing him that you may or may not be interested... he just has to find out for sure. When you're not sure if he's the one, or if you want to keep things open for other guys to show their interest in you, flirting is the best way to do that.

Because you're such a social butterfly, Libra, flirting should come easily for you. Keep things casual, make some eye contact and physical contact every once in a while, and let him know that you're interested in him by keeping things going over text. Don't give him all of your time, but definitely give him a reason to come back for more.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You're a pro at being mysterious, Scorpio, and you should definitely use that to get the guys to chase you. Nothing is sexier than knowing that he has to work harder just to get to know you, right?

that said, don't make him work TOO hard, otherwise he'll find someone who's more interested in opening up to him. You don't have to open up to him about all your dirty little secrets right away. 

But you should let him know that if he sticks around that there's more to come. You want to find that perfect balance between being coy and showing him that you're interested.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

It might sound a little counterproductive, but one of the best ways to get a guy to chase you is to ignore him, Sagittarius. Don't ignore him completely (you want him to know that he DOES have a chance), but don't pay him too much attention, either.

The best way to do this is to ignore a few of his texts, not seem too interested in what he's saying, and make him feel like he needs to put in more effort to get you to really notice him.

I'm not sure why this works so well, but it really does as long as you do it right. You're already the kind of person other people flock to, so use that skill to pique his interest in you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You've got a LOT going on in your life, Capricorn. If you know that it's not possible to always answer his texts and hang out whenever he wants, then he should know it, too.

If you want the guys to chase you, you have to let them know that they need to value your time. Don't go out of your way to make sure you answer his calls or put aside important things for him.

You have a life! If he wants to be a part of that, he has to be patient. If he can't wait his turn, then he isn't the one for you.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

A relationship should enhance your life, not become the only important thing about your life. You of all zodiac signs know that the best, Aquarius. If you want to get guys to chase you, you have to show them that your life is pretty great.

You have a job, friends and family, and a rich social life. If he wants to be a part of that, then great, as long as he knows you've got other things going on, too. Be honest with him upfront so that there's no confusion later on.

Tell him that you're keeping busy at work, that you have responsibilities, and that you're interested in making this work. When he sees that you're not afraid to tell it like it his, he'll be hooked.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

It can be easy to play the "can't catch me" game so well that he never gets to know what it's like to be with you. And we certainly don't want that, do we, Pisces? No! Eventually, you want the chase to stop and for him to be yours.

To do that, you need to know when to give in to him a little bit. It doesn't have to be both of you professing your love for each other, but it should be enough to let him know the chase is worth it.

Touch his hand or arm when talking to him, genuinely laugh when he makes a joke, and give him a little smooch every now and then. You want him to know that he still has to work for you, but that he's on the right track.
