This Is What Kind Of Boyfriend You Need, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

A boyfriend who only makes your life more exciting, instead of making you feel like he’s holding you back. A boyfriend who takes a spontaneous road trip with you on a random Wednesday, who will call in sick to work in order to play hooky around the city with you, and who will share a life with you that’s centered around growth, adventure, and exploration.



Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

A boyfriend who finally brings you the sense of warmth and peace that you could never find in any other guy. A boyfriend who leaves you love notes on the mirror for no reason, who always fulfills his promises and does what he says he’s going to do, and who makes you feel like the only girl in the room every time he looks at you.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

A boyfriend who can read you and understand you like no one else has ever been able to do before. A boyfriend who will keep you entertained in social situations that you’re required to be at, who understands that sometimes you’re going to have great days and sometimes you’re going to have bad days, and who never makes you feel like you have to be anyone but yourself around him.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

A boyfriend who loves how in touch you are with your own emotions and who never makes you try to be someone you’re not. A boyfriend who writes you loving and handwritten cards, who picks up your coffee and makes the bed and does whatever little things he can to make you feel taken care of, and who isn’t embarrassed to be upfront with you about how strong his feelings are for you.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

A boyfriend who finally feels like an equal match for you. A boyfriend who is just as enthusiastic as you are about pursuing passions, who isn’t afraid to match your fast pace and foster a relationship where you two challenge each other every day, and who loves learning and experiencing new concepts, ideas, hobbies, and adventures with you.



Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

A boyfriend who takes away the constant anxiety you feel about dating. A boyfriend who hates playing games and isn’t afraid to tell you how he feels, who stays up with you until four in the morning just to talk and feel connected, and who always knows the right thing to say in order to put you at ease and make you feel comforted.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

A boyfriend who never wants to change your life, only wants to blend himself into it. A boyfriend who never tries to infringe upon your friendships, who fits in seamlessly with all of your loved ones, and who makes you actually work for his attention for once, instead of falling instantly for your charm like everybody else.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

A boyfriend who makes life feel constantly new and thrilling with him. A boyfriend who will take a class with you in something that’s completely foreign to you both, who is inspired by you but not intimidated by you, and who will be the first one to support you and encourage you 1000% each time you take on a new challenge.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

A boyfriend who makes you feel loved and accepted for every side of you. A boyfriend who enjoys little things with you (like shared morning coffee or a walk in the snow), who constantly laughs with you no matter how hard things get, and who adores your sense of optimism but loves you just as much on the bad days.



Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

A boyfriend who brings a softness to your life without ever trying to change your ambition or focus. A boyfriend who always provides you with a much-needed sense of lightness and joy after a long work day, who reminds you of the importance of self-care and patience without ever trivializing the importance of your career goals and dreams, and who will love you the same – whether you’ve experienced a huge success or a huge failure.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

A boyfriend who makes you feel totally vulnerable (in a good way) and totally safe at the same time. A boyfriend who you trust so much that you’re actually willing to let down your walls for once, who cares about the causes and missions you care about (even if they’re not his passions) because he knows they’re important to you, and who never asks you to change for him – only that you make space for him to love you in your world.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

A boyfriend who actually makes you feel excited about life and all its possibilities. A boyfriend who has a strong desire to learn about your world view while also being willing to share his own, who never tries to force his ideas on you but is always there to listen and be a sounding board when you ask for it, and who believes in you so much that he challenges you to make things happen instead of only looking at them as dreams.

This Is The Kind Of Person You Should Be Dating, Based On Your Birth Order

OLDEST

Oldest children are caretakers, natural leaders, incredibly particular, and rarely sway towards being irresponsible or impulsive. An oldest child is used to needing to watch out for everyone else, so straying from “what they know” isn’t exactly their first instinct. If it were up to them, they would call all the shots. When they said jump, someone else’s response would be, “How high?”

This is why an oldest child needs someone who challenges them and busts them out of their comfort zone. In order to have a truly successful and fulfilling relationship, and oldest child needs someone who isn’t a “yes man.” They need someone who isn’t afraid to speak up and (sometimes) over them, and doesn’t just let them call every single shot. They need a person who will bring out their youthful, fun side, and encourage them to take risks every now and then.

And oldest child is so used to being the “psuedo-parent” which is why they need someone who takes some of that pressure off of them. They’re used to taking care of and watching out for everyone else, and they need someone who will flip the tables and do the same for them for a change. When they’re with someone who is their equal, both in dominance and as a nurturer, that’s when they’ll be in a forever kind of relationship.



SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE

Middle children are used to being, for lack of a better term, caught in the middle. Because they’ve grown up with such overpowering personalities on either side of them, they’re not easily rattled, can stay calm under immense pressure, and are happy to be the peacekeeper. But because they’re constantly there for everyone else, they often aren’t there for themselves. They want attention, they have needs, but have trouble asking for those things due to their own passivity.

This is why a middle middle child needs to be with someone who will be their cheerleader, their advocate, their champion. They need someone who believes in them almost more than they believe in themselves. Middle children have so much potential to make their dreams come true and to be trailblazers, but they need a partner who has their back and wants to make sure they know how amazing they truly are.

Middle children are (often) the most amenable people, which is why they need a partner who wants to make sure they also stand up for themselves and what they deserve. They’re used to being in the background or having to fight for attention, so they need someone who wants to really watch them shine. When a middle child finds someone who gives them the spotlight and lets them bloom and blossom on their own, that’s someone who they’ll hold onto.

YOUNGEST

Youngest children are raised with the belief that they can accomplish anything, that they are almost incapable of failure. This is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it makes them bold, fearless, and confident. Youngest children are the life of the party, completely exciting, and it makes people drawn to them. But, that fearless factor also lends a hand to youngest children being impulsive, obstinate, and at times oblivious to things that don’t actively pertain to them.



This is why the social-butterfly youngest child needs to be with someone who brings them back to Earth. They need someone to balance all of that energy, all of that craziness, and level it out a little bit. The perfect partner for a youngest child knows when to let them go be the star of the show, but also how to help them keep their feet on the ground.

It can be difficult for a youngest child to settle down, which is why they need a partner who is as much of a chameleon as they are. Someone who can be all over the place, but also show them that it’s fun to be more reserved. When a youngest child finds that person who can inspire them while also teaching them new things, that’s a person who will be a truly amazing partner for them.

TWIN

Growing up, twins have both the blessing and the curse of having a person literally always by their side. On one hand, their twin is a constant companion, confidant, and best friend. But on the other, it’s someone they’ll always compare themselves to, and a person who makes their other relationships pale in comparison as far as closeness and understanding is concerned. Being a twin is almost an automatic personality aspect, and it’s one that’s difficult to deal with.

Oftentimes twins struggle with finding a strong and balanced relationship. They can lean towards being on the clingy side, and put a lot of unfair pressure onto their partner to be everything their twin was. This is why a twin needs a motivator; someone to push them and bring them into their own. A lot of the time a twin (especially while they’re still finding themselves) has a hard time with knowing who they are. They need a partner who isn’t afraid of that insecurity, and instead wants to help them become more sure of themselves.



It can, and probably will, take time for a twin to find a true forever relationship. But this is fine! Twins should probably test the waters more than most because it’s harder for them to know exactly who they are as their own person. Once a twin has found a partner who can see them for who they truly are, even on the days when they can’t, that’s someone they should really explore the possibility of being serious with.

ONLY CHILD

Only children are sort of a wild card. Because they grow up with no siblings, a lot of their personality is determined by their parents, their family friends, or even just the people at school who they socialize with. All of this people watching and observation makes them 1) great listeners and 2) very intuitive. They tend to be fairly hard to get to know, but are incredibly creative individuals who are fiercely loyal once someone becomes important to them.

An only child needs a partner who can really be their person. They need someone who has 100% of their trust, who they’re unafraid of opening up to and being vulnerable around. This is why the best partner for an only child is someone patient, someone unafraid of taking things slow, and someone who naturally makes people feel comfortable around them.

Only children don’t connect with many people, so when they do it’s something special and rare. They aren’t going to be the person who falls easily or impulsively; it’s going to take some time. But once they give their heart to someone and truly open up and know they can trust that person, it’ll be unlike any other relationship.
