Confidence, a steady job, maybe a nice smile . . . we all have different ideas on what’s attractive in a person. But once we fall in love, we need more from a relationship than the initial chemistry. Here’s our best guess on what a lady needs from her romantic partner based her zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
A clingy, codependent partner is a major turnoff for you; you love having your own space. Yet when you’re in a relationship, you want to feel some affection from your partner. Aries needs a partner who is as independent and self-assured as she is while still showing some love.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
Now entering a drama-free zone. Some people live for a fiery on-again, off-again relationship, but not you. Taurus needs a partner who comforts her, supports her, and makes her feel whole.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
It doesn’t matter if you and your partner watch all of the same shows together or if you and your partner have nothing in common, as long as your partner has something to say. What Gemini really needs is a partner with whom she can talk about anything. A good conversation is much more attractive to you than what’s on the outside.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
Being ruled by the lunar cycles means Cancer’s mood is ever-changing. You have your on days and your off days, but you’re a fierce lover every day. You need a partner who cares for you just as intensely and can love you at your worst.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
Step aside, June Cleaver; Leo is definitely not a diminutive housewife. You have big dreams and a lot on your mind, so you need a partner who sees you as more than just arm candy.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
Because you’re uncomfortable when you’re not in control, you tend to wear the pants in your relationship. There’s nothing wrong with that, but when you’re too obsessed with keeping everything perfect, you tend to lose the organic romance. Virgo needs a partner who can help her let go and stop sweating the small stuff.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Love is important to you, for sure, but you don’t like being so head-over-heels that you neglect your friends or your other responsibilities. Libra needs a partner can help her find harmony between her relationship, her family, her friends, and everything else.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
If you wanted to date someone with no passions, opinions, or personality, you would date a brick wall. Scorpio craves someone who will challenge and excite her. You feed off other people’s auras, so the more personality they have, the more energized you feel.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
There’s no holding back a Sagittarius. You hate feeling stifled, whether it’s in a romantic relationship or in any other relationship. You need a partner who gives you the freedom to explore yourself.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
Your Type A personality means you put so much pressure on yourself. You love being a perfectionist, but sometimes you feel completely exhausted when you come home. Capricorn needs a partner whose love is so comforting that it doesn’t feel like work. And while it’s not necessary, it wouldn’t hurt if that partner is willing to throw in some shoulder rubs after a long, hard day.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
Being stuck in a rut is a terrifying thought for an Aquarius. Doing the same old routine for too long bores you, and you need to spice things up every once in a while. You crave a partner who is as spontaneous as you are and can surprise you with thoughtful, original displays of affection.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
You have a natural social intuition, meaning you can tell when someone is down and when they need a friend. However, not everyone has that gift, meaning you don’t always have someone who’ll return the favor. You need someone who can truly tell when you need a hug and can appreciate you for who you are.
