What Gets Each Zodiac Sign Excited About A New Relationship getty

Nothing is as exciting as a new relationship. Your focus is solely on feeling happy, and you look forward to getting to know your new partner and falling even more in love. No two people feel things the same way, and it can sometimes be challenging to decipher what you should do to strengthen your new relationship.

As with all other facets in astrology, the stars can also influence our love lives. Because of this, all of the zodiac signs have different things that get them excited about a new relationship.

For some people, it’s the thought of starting with a blank slate and the idea that things will be better than in previous relationships. You may be independent in every way, but that doesn’t mean you don’t crave love, companionship, and the thought of having someone who loves you back.


While a new relationship is a new beginning with a new person, it's important to know that both of you are human, flawed, and wonderful. 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
