Love, Zodiac

What's that old expression? "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." So true, and even more so when you're going out on a first date. Forget the second date for now — the job is to be impressive enough to get to that place. Right now, we're all about impressing someone and how we go about doing it.

These are the big moments where we have to dim all the "self-help" noise and dating advice, and come to terms with the assumed superficial needs of whomever it is you're about to thrill with your impressiveness. No room for "Don't worry about what others think!" Nope, that kind of thinking will get you nowhere on a date. If you don't care what others think, you'll definitely be date-free.

So, what do the zodiac signs do to impress on a first date? If we use astrology as a guide, it's clear how particular signs will act. Are you a flowers and dinner type of date? Are you a "let's fly to Europe" kind of partner? Or, are you a "Let's go to the mall" type? Perhaps you're indecisive, leaving it all to the imagination of your date?

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're a daredevil. You aren't satisfied with mere pyrotechnics on a date; you go for the full stadium of fire. In other words, you want your date to think you're a flaming badass, and you'll even put your life into jeopardy to win their favor.
