Summer of Love: What Your Star Sign Says about Your Dating Style
By Amelia Quint
It’s getting hot outside, and you know what that means! If you’re looking for a little summer romance but aren’t sure where to find it, the answer is in the stars.
Every star sign has its own dating style that colors what they’re looking for in a partner, each with its own unique desires and quirks.
Read for yourself to see what kind of connection you’re really seeking, or read for your crush to find out what kind of summer lovin’ they’re looking for. Then, get on Bumble and get matching!
When it comes to romance, you’re fearless. Aries always know exactly what (or who) they want and aren’t afraid to chase after it. If you’re interested in someone, tell them! Fiery Rams need a physical connection, so get your blood pumping on a date with a run or some dancing.
You’re the most sensual sign of the zodiac. Taurus is a total romantic who can’t get enough flowers, wine, and spa days! You’re a sucker for classic Hollywood glamour, so swipe on some red lipstick or put on a tie and take your date to your local indie cinema for a good time.
You’ve mastered the art of flirting. For a Twin, amazing conversation — both in-person and online — is a prerequisite. Geminis are endlessly curious, and love to be the first on a cultural trend. Link up and go see whatever’s been getting rave reviews.
You’re cosmically amazing with food. If there’s one thing you can be certain of, it’s that your date will be delicious. Trust your own taste! Cancers tend to delve into intense feelings pretty quickly, but in the best of ways. Go to an intimate restaurant where you can really open up to one another.
You’re THE sign of romance. Don’t be afraid to pull out all the stops. Make your date feel like royalty, and they’ll do the same for you! Lions are usually popular and have lots of invitations to the latest VIP events, so be ready to mix and mingle with your plus one.
You’re the ultimate party planner. You’re meticulous and think of everything — and expect the same courtesy. You probably started planning your date before they even agreed to go out with you. You have a squeaky clean reputation with a naughty side. Let your date know it’s safe to let loose with you.
You love an Instagram-worthy night out.Of all the signs, count on Libras to plan a picture-perfect setting for a romantic evening -- and to arrive gorgeously groomed. Keep in mind that the symbol for Libra is the scales, so make sure that things in your relationship always stay balanced.
There’s more to you than an icy exterior. It’s no secret you can be seen as intimidating, Scorpio. Show your date there’s more to you than meets the eye! Be on the lookout for someone who matches your intensity. Your best bet? Let chemistry speak for itself. Meet up for coffee and talk about everything under the moon, no matter how taboo.
You need a plus-one who’s as adventurous as you. Your insatiable appetite for new experiences makes you extremely energetic and easily bored, so be sure to keep things fresh. You’re notorious for saying whatever’s on your mind, regardless of the situation. If you like someone, you’ll know immediately.
Your ‘type’ does their own thing -- and they do it well. Anyone wanting to be with you needs to have their s*** together. Chat about the projects you’re both working on and why you love them! You crave a constant balance between independence and commitment. Be clear about your intentions.
In your love life, intellectual connection is everything. Aquarius are the most hyper-connected of the signs, having no qualms blending technology (like Bumble!) and romance. But before you get close to a potential partner, you need to know that they’ll give you the space you need to thrive.
You’re an artist, even when it comes to romance. Pisces is the most sensitive sign of the zodiac, which can be a double-edged sword. It means you’re totally in tune with your feelings, but can be easily overwhelmed by them. Try introducing your date to the books, movies, songs, and works of visual art that have moved you.
