Even if you know what type of partner you are, you may be surprised to figure out the things you truly value about love. This is what your zodiac sign can tell you about how you wish to receive love, and how you are able to feel most supported in your relationships.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th):
You’re a bit complicated when it comes to love because you hate being lonely yet you cherish your independence. The ideal partner for you would be someone that values your need for space but also can detect when you need an extra dose of affection.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th):
You seek a very non-conventional love, for your priorities revolve around your artistic sense rather than physical affection. The way you need to be loved is through support of your creations and talents, thus someone who loves you has to be someone who also loves your art.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th):
As a spontaneous individual, you need a partner that will always keep you on your toes. Your romantic life has to be active, fresh and always moving forward and therefore your partner must up for a challenge at all times.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th):
You want someone who respects your fear of change, which means that your perfect romance is reliable, steady and honest. Before you get in too deep, your partner has to first prove that he is trustworthy, and from there he must provide a sense of responsibility as his symbol of love.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th):
Your inability to make choices is vital to your love life, for you need someone to love you in spite of your poor decision-making skills. You want a love that is rooted in support and patience, and although you’re an affectionate person, you value stability even more.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd):
Although you’re extremely loyal to those you love, you’re afraid to trust others with your deepest thoughts. Your ideal relationship thrives on communication, which means that you crave a partner who will love you by always giving you new ways to trust him.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd):
As a Leo, you absolutely need someone who will praise you. This is not to say that your partner should support arrogance, but he should instead recognize all of your successes. You desire the kind of love that proves itself through admiration and fun surprises (you’d most prefer gifts).
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd):
You already know that you’re smart and hardworking, and therefore you need someone who recognizes your accomplishments but also helps you slow down. You achieve the greatest happiness with a partner who knows when you need help without you having to ask and can provide you with the assistance you need without getting in your way.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd):
Your interest in politics and justice means that you access love through your brain, not your heart. You want someone who loves you by always provoking new thoughts and probing you in order to tap into your intelligence.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st):
You will not waste your time on a relationship that doesn’t prioritize trust. You need to be loved by someone who acknowledges your jealous side and alleviates your anxieties rather than heightens them. Trust has to come first with you so that you feel comfortable confiding in your partner.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st):
Similar to an Aries, you need excitement in your relationship. If you’re going to be with someone, he has to enjoy traveling and adventure just as much as you do so that he doesn’t fall behind. You seek someone who values a journey rather than one who simply makes time for it.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th):
Family is everything to you, and so you need someone who thinks of your family as their own. You need a partner that doesn’t just feel like a significant other, but fits into your future. This kind of love is intense, but completely rewarding.
