16If He’s An Earth Sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): Hit Them With Thoughtful Conversations

Earth signs are Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn. These guys are very grounded and dependable. They have a hard time truly expressing themselves, and often have their quietness seen as standoffish. Which just isn’t true!

They are very stable signs and enjoy thoughtful conversations the most. They enjoy going past the surface stuff and getting involved in deep conversations. These are the kind of guys that can be intrigued for hours without even realizing when it comes to have a good, meaningful conversation with someone that they’re interested in. He is usually a very kind guy, and very easy to talk to. And chances are, he’s far more nervous than you are so don’t be scared to initiate the first move. Earth signs are calm and practical, so they aren’t really moved by fantasy thoughts.

15The Taurus Guy: Tell Them About A Good Deed

Taurus usually love to talk, so if you want to start a conversation, then it better be a meaningful one. They don’t have time to talk about the small stuff, they have so much on their minds that they’re passionate about and want to know that you feel the same. Did you recently volunteer, or have you been thinking about donating your time or items to a cause?

Totally tell him about this! It’s also important to do this during your first interaction with them to keep them enticed. They want to interact with active people, not people who have no care for others or those who are lazy. They want to know that you are also putting yourself out there and living an active life.

14The Virgo Guy: Don’t Talk, Just Text A Playful Conversation

Virgos get a bad reputation for being introverts…because they usually are. It is also for a Virgo to put themselves out there. They are usually the listeners of their group, so don’t be surprised if he tends to stand in the background. Your best bet is to either approach him yourself or, better yet, let him express himself through text.

That’s right, perhaps talking is too awkward for him at first. Warm things up with a conversation over text messages instead. The lack of face-to-face takes the pressure off of him and allows him to be more himself. Once things get warmed up, he’ll reveal his true nature and things won’t be so awkward when you’re face-to-face. Virgo men can be hard to read, but they don’t easily express themselves.

13The Capricorn Guy: Keep The Conversation Light

The Capricorn man is probably the only sign that doesn’t need to be enthralled in an epic conversation in order to get his attention. He is much simpler, thankfully. However, this guy is often a know-it-all, so be prepared to have some patience with this one. Keeping things light is a great way to start things off.

The Capricorn man is quite the intellectual, so be prepared to learn a few new things. He loves to learn, but he is also a great teacher. Don’t be afraid to ask him questions. He’ll enjoy answering them in an attempt to impress you as well. If he seems serious, don’t worry, it will fade. That just means he’s a bit nervous. Eventually, when he is comfortable he will warm up to you.

If you want to win over your Air sign crush, then you better appeal to their mind. Are you reading an amazing new book, or learning a new language? This is the kind of stuff that they do as well. Maybe you can learn a new language together and challenge each other as a game. They want to be swept away with equally superior intellect.

11The Gemini Guy: Be Outright Flirty

The Gemini man needs to be constantly stimulated, so the pressure is kind of on. Like the Aries, it helps to be straightforward and playful. While the Aries likes a challenge, the Gemini will love how open you are with your attraction to them. They enjoy a little good flirting, so why not drench them in it.

However, keep it to strictly flirting. Believe it or not, Gemini men tend to move on the slower side. They like to feel out situations and relationships first. They need to know that you are interested, and of course, flirting will totally take care of this. Geminis themselves are very flirty as well, so it will be a nice balance of give and take here. One-on-one conversations are also key here rather than a group setting.

10The Libra Guy: Spontaneous Conversations Work Best

Libras are the social butterflies of the zodiac. They enjoy spending time with others and are less likely to be hermits than others. So, maybe talking about your latest Netflix binge should be saved for another time. They are very spontaneous and enjoy random conversations, so don’t be afraid to let your verbal diarrhea lose with them. These are the perfect people to do this with.

Chances are good that your Libra crush also is also a big fan of outdoors activities. So, talk about your latest hike, or as them about their latest adventure. I’m pretty sure they have one!

Having someone to discuss the future with can be therapeutic for him. And when that’s you, you two have a much deeper connection than just flirty friends. If you want to be taken seriously by this guy, you need to take yourself seriously as well.

The best way to also get through to them is to hang out as a group, but then single them out. This will cause them to see that you are really interested in them rather than your group of friends. Plus, it makes them feel like the center of attention, which they really love. Compliments also go a long way with the Leo man. Tell him how great his blue shirt looks on him. And I promise he’ll return the favor.

If you’ve got your heart set on a Sagittarius man, then I hope you also have a valid passport. Your adventures truly await with this guy.

Water signs are highly intuitive and often times even artistic. They tend to be creative types. And like creatives, they have no interest in the same-old.

3The Cancer Guy: Talk About Food

How do you get to a Cancer man’s heart? Often times this can easily be achieved through his stomach. Cancer men love good food, so why not bring up the last great restaurant you visited. Or even the slew of food trucks you want to hit next weekend with your group of friends. That way, you can invite him along for some more quality time that you’ll both enjoy.

Even better, why don’t you challenge each other to create your best dishes, and bring them with your to the park with a blanket? They enjoy the idea of thoughtful situations and meaningful hangout sessions. They are all about quality versus quantity when it comes to the people in their lives. Sooner or later he will reveal his sensitive side, and then you’ll know you’re in.

2The Scorpio Guy: Recall Whatever They Say

This does not mean to repeat everything he says like the ‘Stop Copying Me’ game you perhaps tortured a sibling with. The Scorpio man believes everything that he says is important because he usually winds up saying very little. So, he wants to know that you are actually listening to him. Recall a moment that he brought up in your last conversation, and show him that you’re a great listener.

He is also very assertive, so if he is into you and he’s feeling things between you guys you will definitely know.

He wants to feel like he is able to express himself.
