How To Get Each Zodiac Sign To Commit In A Relationship
Love, Zodiac

It's not always like pulling teeth.

If polyamory doesn't work for you, you're probably a monogamous type of person, and that means you need another person of like-mind to be your partner in this life.

You need that signed, sealed and delivered contract of commitment so you can feel at ease for the rest of your days. You want a person who will swear their loyalty to you and you alone, and if they so much as look at another, they're toast in your world.

Guess what? You're not alone. Most, but not all, zodiac signs in astrology crave a long-lasting relationship with a loved one.

And they really and truly do not want an open relationship, nor do they want to be cheated on, lied to, or made to feel like they're uncool if they want monogamy. On one hand, you're lucky — most people do want committed relationships; on the other hand, welcome to planet Earth, where most people cheat on their mates at some point or another, tossing the institution of monogamy to the breeze. Those pesky humans, always starting trouble!

So, how does one get a commitment from their partner without it seeming like a death threat? Well, depending on what zodiac sign your partner-to-be is, the rationale is different for each person.

What do you need to do to extract a commitment from each zodiac sign?

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

To get Aries to commit, you have to let them know that you will be there for them sexually. Oh, they will cheat if they aren't sexually satisfied, so when coupling up with an Aires, make sure you are ready to be Lover of the Year.

Aries is serious about their sex, and if you don't come through with your end of the bargain, they will find it somewhere else.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is a super faithful, super loving sign, and if you want them to be committed to you, then you better make sure they are head over heels in love with you. That's the only thing that guarantees their fidelity.

They want to be faithful to the one they love, but if they aren't madly in love with you, they will cheat. It's that simple.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

For Gemini to commit to you, you have to prove yourself to be a mental case and a lost cause. Gemini is only interested in saving you, whether or not you need saving.

They need to feel superior, and if they're going to actually commit their time to just you, you better be pathetic enough for Gemini to feel superior to. Gemini only commits to lost causes.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You would have to provide the goods in order to even capture the attention of Cancer. They're down for commitment, but not empty commitment; no, they want they house, the car, the events, the parties — they want the material things.

And in return, you'll get the kindness, the sex, the love and whatever else you want. Just keep up the payments, and you'll have the commitment.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

To nail down a Leo, you have to be innovative, interesting, glamour, intelligent and, hopefully, rich. Leo really does like the money and the security, not to mention the hours of admiration you'll need to provide.

It's not really a guarantee that you'll get the monogamous commitment, as they are somewhat incapable of monogamy, but you will have a good time while you're involved.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo needs a signed contract, preferably in blood, stating that should you breech the contract with an infidelity, you agree to throwing yourself in a lion's cage, when the lion is most hungry.

Virgo has no patience for anything less than blind commitment; you either sign on for the full prisoner-of-love package, or you are shown the door.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra will not commit. They will tell you they will, but they won't. They will lie to you under contract; they'll break the commitment.

Libra has no intention of ever doing anything other than what Libra wants to do, and, most of the time, it's not about monogamy or commitment to anyone. In other words, go after a Libra and you get what you deserve.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Interestingly enough, Scorpio, the sign of sex and violence, is also a very loving sign that truly wants the peace and comfort of a good old-fashioned committed relationship.

We think they're all tomcats on the prowl, but, in truth, Scorpio makes a great and faithful mate and will easily commit to a relationship for a lifetime.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

If you want a Sagittarius mate, don't worry about them cheating on you. That's not going to be the competition here. What you have to worry about is not the sex you imagine they'll have with others, it's the alone time they need in order to survive.

Sagittarius does not want to be in a committed relationship. Not because they fear having only one lover, but because they want to be alone — and it shows!

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

A committed Capricorn is a good idea for business, but when it comes to romance and relationship, well... they're not ultimately interested in a one-person-for-life sexual connection. In fact, they'd rather just... keep it open.

To get one to commit, you'd have to promise more than you give, so maybe you should just accept it in advance: Capricorn's not the most committed lover on the market.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

As long as you don't make them feel like you're stuffing them into a coffin and nailing it shut for the rest of eternity, you might be able to get a commitment out of an Aquarius.

It's not that they need many sexual partners, it's that they don't like the idea of being locked into any kind of demand; they will be faithful, as long as they don't feel like they're being watched and... maintained.

PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

All you have to do is look at them once, with goo goo eyes, and boomski! They're yours forever. Pisces lives for commitment, and commitment means security to them.

It's very easy to get Pisces to commit to you, which means you have the responsibility of being good and true to them. Don't hurt them! They will give you everything in the world, including commitment.
