Each Zodiac Sign's Dating Style — And Whether Or Not They Can Commit

We all present a version of ourselves.

As a professional psychic and reader of cards, I am constantly asked about dating, love, and romance. Constantly, as if it's the only thing people live for. "Does he still love me?" "Will she come back to me?" "Why did they cheat?" And, of course, "Is there someone for me?"

While there is no guarantee on whether we end up with a soulmate or not, there certainly is a chance we'll go out on a date at some point or another during our lives. While dating advice will have you believe everything cumulates into a nervous breakdown that has been slowed down so that every minute of it can seem painfully on edge, it's a totally individual process.


How to prepare for such an endeavor? Some folks are casual in their approach, giving off the impression that while dating might be a nice thing, it's not something they necessarily want to do, while others might prepare for weeks, creating menus, fashioning ensembles, going over good "talk points."

Everybody goes about dating with their own agenda, so what's the dating style of your zodiac sign, all based on astrology?

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You want to appear polished, but casual. Little does your date know that that takes hours for you to pull off, but it also happens to be one of your great joys.


Getting ready for a date is a study in personal grooming. When the compliments roll in on your snazzy outfit, you'll say, "What? This old thing?"

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Let's face it: you go on dates because you want sex. Dates are for sex, so when you get ready, your style is all about being as teasing as it gets.

You will spend way too much time getting ready and you will always keep them waiting. Ironically, your style always works for you!

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You don't like to think of it as a date. To you, it's more like a therapy session where you get to talk yourself into saving whomever is going to go out with you.


You find the most broken person out there, and set aside a portion of time to show them how broken they are so that you can come in and be their personal savior. It never works, but then again, you never learn.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Your dating style is all about getting to know each other and doing fun stuff... in the most stereotypical way possible. You don't want to think too much when it comes to dating, so you tend to open Dating Manual 101 for hints.

The truth is, you'd rather be home, watching TV and chilling with your date.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You are pretty confident that every date you go on is going to be thrilling, and to make sure that's true, you come prepared to regale your way through any awkward silence.

Your dating style is theatrical and you are the star performer. So far, no one's left the theater so you much be doing something right!

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You do like to tease, but do you like to please as well? That would be a hard no, Virgo. Your dating style is provocative and alluring, but you don't just give it away. Oh no, you make your date work and work for it — whatever "it" is.


You may be worth it in the end, but it's going to be a strong partner with great endurance who will end up as your date.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

If they buy, you're in. However, you're really not into the whole "I'll buy you dinner" thing, which turns people off, and that gives you a great reason to blow them off. You prefer to be paid for, and you never lift a finger to make anything easier for your dates.

You figure a date is about sex, not about you having to spend money on someone you simply don't care about.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

If you've decided to go out on a date, then whomever your date is, they are a lucky person indeed. Oh, you may have that dark reputation, but the truth is you really do want to share your life with someone.

And yes, that "someone" must be as special as you are. Not to mention that you are excellent in the sack.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Your dating style can be described as "taking a vow of silence" meets "don't bother me, I'm fantasizing." Essentially, you want to date, but are you even capable of it?

You are the person who brings a statue to a dinner, and explains how mustard seeds must be popped before using. your style is unique, and often times misunderstood.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Your style of dating consists of tallying up how much the evening will cost, with considerations of whether or not your date would fully appreciate the amount you spent on your outfit.

Assuming they know nothing, you go in, preparing to meet a moron, with the hopes that they don't end up ruining your evening.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You are fairly secure in who you are and in your appearance, so you throw on whatever flannel shirt you have hanging around, a Duck Dynasty cap for sexiness, and you hope like hell that your date likes cheap coffee.

After a few donuts, you go directly into marriage and kids.

PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

When you date, you do so with the intention of nailing down a partner. To you, there is no other reason for dating, so you go in gangbusters; it's all or nothing.


You look your best, spend all your money, and immediately plan for future outings together, whether you like the person or not. Hey, they're alive, right? And that means they are marriage material.
