1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As an Aries, you typically have a very upbeat and forward personality. However, you can also come across as very aggressive to a lot of reserved and more toned-down individuals. That’s why you need to stop getting all sexual on dates especially if you’re not deep into a relationship yet. You want to keep things very casual and light at first.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 21)
Yes, you are a very passionate and intense individual. You are also known to be quite loyal and you have difficulty letting things go easily. However, you have to stop making it a habit of talking about your ex when you’re out on dates. That is always going to be a red flag for any person you are out on a date with. You don’t want to give them the impression that you haven’t gotten over your ex.
3. Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
You need to eliminate the habit of just staring at your phone all of the time when you’re out on a date with someone. As a Gemini, you have a tendency to get bored a lot and you are constantly looking for something that you can distract yourself with. But when you’re on a date, it’s essential that you focus on the date at hand. Learn the value of living in the moment.
4. Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
You need to stop going on and on about how much you want to get married and have kids someday. Yes, that’s the ultimate goal. But you don’t want to be jumping to conclusions. The person you’re on a date with might get the sense that you’re pressuring them into it even though that might not necessarily be your intention.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You need to take a chill pill on the ego and the narcissism. You want to make sure that when you’re on a date with someone, you’re not just talking about yourself all of the time. It has to be an equal exchange. You want to be letting them know more and more about who you are. But you also want to be making an effort to get to know them in a more intimate manner as well.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You need to stop going on and on about work. Hold your work life and your romantic life separate. Remember that you are out on a date with someone and you’re trying to get to know a human being. Yes, you can talk about what you do for a living. But you shouldn’t be going into the specifics of the things that you’re working on at the office.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Cease gossiping when you are out on a date. First of all, a date is designed for two people to be getting to know one another more. And you’re not going to be able to do that if you just keep on talking about random gossip that revolves around other people. Talk about yourselves and whatever things you are most passionate about instead.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
This isn’t a competition. Relationships aren’t contests that you’re trying to win. When you’re out on a date with someone, you want to be able to make an impression on them. But you don’t have to be trying to one-up them on everything. You shouldn’t be trying to outdo one another with things that you can brag about.
9. Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Get your alcohol in line, Sagittarius. Yes, you might be tempted to reach for a little of that liquid courage just to deal with your nerves. But you don’t want to be overdoing it either. You don’t want to be completely losing control of your inhibitions. Learn to drink responsibly. Your love life depends on it.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Cease being so pessimistic all of the time, Capricorn. You tend to see yourself as a serious realist. You are someone who takes a very no-nonsense approach to life. But you need to lighten up. Don’t expect anyone to go out with you if you aren’t going to be fun to be with.
11. Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
You need to stop showing up late. Be on time. This is your absolute worst habit whenever you go out on dates. Whenever you schedule a date with someone, make sure that you know that you are going to be able to show up on time. It’s very rude to keep people waiting for you. This is not a way to get someone to like you.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Don’t be sharing too much about yourself. Yes, you want to be able to get to know another person in an intimate manner. But that doesn’t mean that you should just be totally revealing all of your intimate secrets with them right away.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
