The dating game can be as fun as it is frustrating. It can be exciting to discover new things about the person you’ve just started seeing. It can also be an unnerving exercise in trial and error in deciphering just what makes your latest love interest tick. However, knowing your special someone’s birthdate may give you a couple clues as to their turn-ons and turn-offs. Whether you’re looking for a fun fling or to find your perfect love match, here are a few helpful hints for the turn-ons and turn-offs of each of the 12 signs of the zodiac, designed to demystify your dating compatibility!
Turn Ons: The way to an Aries’ heart is through his or her head. Before you put on a pair of spectacles and start quoting Nietzche, keep in mind that Aries prefers their intellectuals a little more well-rounded and less one-dimensional. Aries appreciates someone who is smart, but doesn’t bludgeon them with their intelligence and who can temper that brilliance with a good sense of humor.
Turn Offs: You can be supermodel gorgeous, but if you open your mouth and a steady stream of stupid begins to fall out, there’s no faster way to send Aries running in the opposite direction.
Dating turn ons: Taurus is an old-fashioned romantic. Ruled by the planet Venus. Taurus ladies love to be courted with flowers and heartfelt, hand-written love letters. Taurus males, in particular, are in love with being in love. True to their bull nature, they enjoy charging ahead with grand gestures of love. If you want to turn on a Taurus male, simply sit back and let him romance you.
Turn Offs: Taurus appreciates a strong partner with a mind of his or her own. However, an overly demanding partner who invades Taurus’s turf and attempts to run roughshod over the bull is a total Taurus turn off.
Dating turn ons: Gemini, the cosmic twins of the zodiac, loves to fly by the seat of his or her pants. If you want to attract a Gemini, show them that you can keep up with their mercurial nature. Be game for anything — be it a hike through the woods or a rockin’ night out at a concert followed by midnight milkshakes or a movie.
Turn Offs: Never, ever, ever roll your eyes at a Gemini. Sure, this sign is often accused of having a split personality and can change switch gears in a millisecond. However, the second you pooh-pooh Gemini’s opinion, this sign can take it very personally.
Dating turn ons: Cancers of either gender are sensitive souls. When they are into someone, they devote their entire being to making them happy. Returning this interest and giving Cancer your rapt, undivided attention is one way to capture this sign’s attention in-turn. Cancer loves good food and good conversation. Stimulate this sign’s appetite and intellectual side and you’ll be sure to win them over.
Turn Offs: Don’t patronize Cancer. While Cancer hates to be ignored, feigning interest in something Cancer is interested in or only half-listening to them is the quickest way to turn this sun sign off.
Dating turn ons: First and foremost, Leo loves to take the lead. Leo’s natural love of the limelight gives them a commanding persona. Yet, at the heart of zodiac’s lion is a cuddly little kitten that wants to be loved and to feel safe. Demonstrate a trustworthy attitude and show Leo that you can offer them emotional — and sometimes financial — stability and you’ll tame this beast for your very own.
Turn Offs: Leo may be a lion, but this sign sure hates liars. Let Leo catch you in a tiny lie even once and you risk jeopardizing any future dates with this sun sign. This fiery sign can handle the truth, even if it stings a little. When it comes to Leo, honesty is always the best policy.
Dating turn ons: Meticulous, organized, Type A-personality Virgo is actually full of surprises when it comes to love, sex, and dating. This sign has a wild streak that lurks beneath their exacting, intellectual exterior. Virgo is surprisingly talkative and loves a receptive audience-of-one for his or her stories and jokes. This astrological sign also needs a partner who can join in on their zingers and witty banter. Demonstrate your skills as a good listener and a quick wit and Virgo won’t be able to get enough of you!
Turn Offs: Did I mention that Virgo has a very well-groomed, put-together exterior? It may seem like a no-brainer, but this zodiac sign, more than any other, detests poor personal hygiene. To keep Virgo interested, you have to have substance AND style. At the very least, comb your hair and make sure you have some Tic Tacs handy!
Dating turn ons: Libra, the scales of the zodiac, is all about balance. Libra typically looks for a partner that isn’t going to throw them too many curveballs. Libra isn’t shallow, but since this sign is ruled by Venus, they do appreciate a thoughtful compliment on their attire or physical appearance. So long as you don’t go overboard with compliments and seem insincere (Remember! Balance!), you can tip the odds in your favor with Libra.
Turn Offs: If your relationship with Libra is in the early stages, avoid offering criticism (particularly harsh criticism) to Libra. Even a well-meaning comment may be misinterpreted as a slam against Libra. Choose your words carefully with Libra to keep them interested.
Dating turn ons: Each of the zodiac signs correspond to a different zone of the body. Scorpio presides over the groin and sex organs — which may have a little somethin’ to do with this astrological sign’s high libido. To put it bluntly, you can be as nasty as you wanna be when it comes to Scorpio. Show ‘em a little skin to pique their interest. Ladies, break out the mini skirts! Fellas, show off those toned biceps with a fitted or sleeveless t-shirt. Either way, you’ll be sure to drive Scorpio wild!
Turn Offs: If there’s one thing Scorpio hates, it’s a tease. This sun sign is immediately turned off if they feel rejected in any way. This sign likes to flirt, but if you’re not serious about your intentions, don’t dangle them in front of Scorpio, only to yank your interest off the table when things start looking hot and heavy. If you’re gonna dance with the zodiac’s scorpion, be prepared to get stung at least once.
Dating turn ons: A positive, upbeat personality is one of the first things to attract Sagittarius’s attention. This multi-faceted sign can sometimes seem like a mystery waiting to be unravelled — a delightful series of contradictions that mesh together in a fascinating combination. Sagittarius seems to enjoy a little bit of mystery in his or her partners, too. Sagittarius loves to travel and enjoys sharing travel tales with his or her partner — and maybe even a few trips or two!
Turn Offs: Sagittarius seems as if he or she is in a state of perpetual motion. This sign plays host to a number of workaholics and adrenaline junkies. If there’s one thing that turns Sagittarius off, it’s a lazy partner. Show Sagittarius that you’ve got your own goals and a drive comparable to theirs and you’ll keep them more than interested!
Dating turn ons: Capricorn has a love for the finer things in life. With Capricorn, everything must be an experience. From shopping for luxury goods or enjoying a meal, it’s all about the ambiance for this sun sign. To truly turn on Capricorn, find ways to make the mundane exceptional. Break out the good dishes and soft candlelight if they’re having dinner at your place. Plan a weekend for two at a quaint, off-the-beaten path bed and breakfast. Make every moment memorable with your Capricorn love interest.
Turn Offs: Ever tasteful, Capricorn hates anything gaudy, gauche, or (gasp!) a knock-off. That same sentiment also extends to people. Don’t be a “counterfeit person” unless you want to run the risk of turning off this sun sign. Clever Capricorn can spot a fake bag and a fake person a mile away. Don’t try to inflate your dating credentials. Be real with Capricorn at all times!
Turn Ons: Aquarius may seem flighty, but the way to this sun sign’s heart is through their mind. Let Aquarius know you’re a deep thinker and a closet intellectual and they will love you for it. Aquarius is typically the sign of poets, visionaries, dreamers — and other creative types that people often write-off as “flighty.” There’s far more to Aquarius than meets the eye. Give them some mental / intellectual fireworks and you’re guaranteed to capture Aquarius’s heart.
Turn Offs: Never tell an Aquarius “no.” Not only will they not take no for an answer, they tend to take those two little letters very personally. Show Sagittarius that you’re willing to try anything once. Even if you tell them “no” afterwards, this sign will respect your wishes knowing that you at least gave their gamble a shot.
Dating turn ons: Water sign Pisces is one of the most mellow signs of the zodiac. Pisces is attracted to soft-spoken people who don’t upset their delicate balance and who are conscientious toward their feelings. Pisces isn’t fond of extravagant displays of affection, but loves to share feelings and talk about a deeper, emotional connection. Learn to express your feelings in a thoughtful, gentle manner and your Pisces sweetheart will be sweet on you in return.
Turn Offs: Sensitive Pisces is not a fan of narrow-minded people. Be open to different points of view and giving people, places, and things a chance. Pisces’ appreciates an open mind as much as they do an open heart.
