How Not to Freak Your Crush Out, Based on Their Zodiac Sign
Summer is finally here, and love is in the air! That is, of course, one of the biggest reasons we all look forward to summer … what could be more fun than a summer fling?
Have you just started seeing some sparks flying your way? Either way, the stars have love in store for you this summer if that’s what you want.
That being said, there is nothing more disappointing than starting the sparks of some summer lovin’, only to see it all fizzle out faster than you can say romance. And sometimes we are our own worst enemies here. We say something that someone else takes the wrong way, or they say something that we take the wrong way.
Did you know that most of the problems in love are caused by a lack of understanding of where the other person is coming from? That’s right! Our own big ol’ egos get in the way, and this often gets us into trouble.
But fret not, we are able to shine the way for all of the zodiac signs. Don’t freak your partner out before you even get to the next level with them! Let’s dive in.

How Not to Freak Your Crush Out, Based on Their Zodiac Sign
If you are dating an Aries, or want to take love to the next level with them, leave your “tired” complaints at home, even if you are.
Aries is driven by energy, enthusiasm, fire, and excitement. They will get bored very fast if you show up for a date, and start complaining. Unless your Aries has kept you up all night, (wink wink) “I’m exhausted” is the last thing they want to hear.
Take a nap before your date with Aries if you are that tired, but never, ever let them see you sleepy. Unless they’re joining you!
Your Taurus lover will be interested in hearing the details of your day, but they don’t need, or want, a play by play. This will bore them into the ground. Stay away from tedious minutia when you are talking it up with your Taurus, unless that minutia is all about them.
With the bull, less is most definitely more. All you need to remember is that they are ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, and use that energy and potential to your advantage when playing with your Taurus.
Get luxurious, focus on sexy, sensual fabrics and textiles, bling, glitter, feathers, you name it. Whatever will make their eyes widen under Venus.
Geminis love their gadgets! Most of the things they do are ruled by the digital world, as they are ruled by the planet Mercury.
They just don’t like it when their partner is all up in their gadgets on a fun date or activity. Gemini tends to be a bit paranoid when it comes to love, and if you are checking your phone every five minutes, they will be wondering who you are talking to. If you must, send them a saucy text when you make the trip to the ladies room, just to let them know they are on your mind, even when you are away.
Putting your nose in your phone all day or all night you are with your Gem may breed nothing but contempt. Turn it off when it’s couple time, and enjoy each other’s company.
For Cancer, home is where the heart is, and the emphasis is on family. If Cancer wants to include you in a family function because that’s the only time they have for you that week, rolling your eyes or saying no is your surest way of keeping your relationship with them short.
Consider it a compliment when Cancer brings you into the fold, it’s a sure sign they care about your a lot. And, if they need to postpone a date with you because they are with the family, being understanding and supportive is the way to Cancer’s heart.
Also, if you have laundry piles and dishes that haven’t been looked at in weeks … your Cancer will notice. They will drive home that night thinking they dodged a bullet by having one less person in their life to take care of. Cancer does want to take care of you, but they are hoping you also know how to take care of yourself too.
When dating a Leo you have to keep in mind that their roar is pretty much just that: a roar. Rarely will you see a Leo truly angry, but they do like to “talk a good talk,” and a big one at that. Stroke their egos and enjoy every last delicious second they spend on you.
Underneath that confident and adventurous date of yours is a person who is much less sure of themselves than they let on. Inside is a little kitten that needs attention and assurance from the one they want to care about. Acknowledging that part of your Leo is essential in this relationship as well.
Make sure to let your Leo lead where they feel most confident (like in the bedroom).
Virgo has the tendency to be on the picky side of things, and so if there is anyone that is easy to turn off it will be this zodiac sign. You can use this information to your advantage in love. Ask your Virgo to make a list of their favorite things to do, or their favorite fantasies.
Another tip? Don’t show up for a road trip with 10 suitcases for your weekend getaway. Virgos do not take well to anyone who seems too high maintenance. Relax, and go with the flow when involved with a Virgo (although, don’t forget to clean up your clutter!).

As the Cardinal Air sign ruled by Venus, Libra is very easy to please in love, especially when you know how to find your way into their heart. The best thing about Libra is just how flexible they are.
Libra is a lover, not a fighter, so trying to pick a fight with this zodiac sign will not go over well. Instead, talk it out together. Cater to the Venus side of Libra which is very sexy and very sensual.
Looking good is loved by Libra, but spending hours to get there is not. So find an easy, maintenance free way to your fabulous this summer if it includes a Libra, and expect a lot of spontaneous fun to result.
Scorpio gets a bit of a bad rap when it comes to love, but it really just comes down to a lack of understanding. You need to invest in giving your Scorpio more realness, more truth, and more passion.
Scorpio is the zodiac detective, and although they seem mysterious and scary, all they are doing is trying to get to the bottom of your case file. Don’t fib to your Scorpio because it’s likely that they will find you out (and they won’t be pleased).
Talk with Scorpio is anything but cheap. Pile on all of the analytic and deep conversations that you want. Just don’t fake it, or you will annoy your Scorpio’s senses and sensibilities, and offend their intelligence as well. If you be real, you will soon find out exactly why many consider this to be the sexiest sign of them all.
When it comes to having fun with a Sagittarius, don’t stick to one agenda. Sag has an inner sense of adventure that is almost unmatched in the zodiac, and playing up to that is a must if you want them sticking around.
The very word “routine” will send them running and packing, as will rules.
Give your Sag the freedom to do what they are most craving in the moment, and they will love you forever.
As the confident, committed, Cardinal Earth sign, most everyone that wants a relationship loves dating a Capricorn.
Capricorn needs to lead the way in most everything that they do. Cap doesn’t put energy where they don’t think it will work or be successful, so if they are spending time on you, that is your cue that they are in it to win it with you. If they aren’t, that’s when you can start putting on the brakes and looking elsewhere.
Never try to force your Capricorn into doing something they might not be ready to do just yet. Be confident and sexy, and this will just make their commitment to your even stronger.
An Aquarius is often the easiest to date, because simple random acts of kindness, (or dates and adventures in group and intellectual settings), will be the way to their heart for good.
What Aquarius doesn’t like? Judgmental and critical people, mean people, and people that get a rise out of making fun of others. Thoughtfulness will bring you far with your Aquarius. Bring them a cup of coffee at work, or leave them a sweet note. These little things will keep them near.
Stuck on a date idea, or want the right tip to move things along with Aquarius? Plan a date at a non profit group or charity, and doing something good for others will be a bonding experience for both of you, and one that your Aquarius will certainly thank you for.
When it comes to dating a Pisces, the first thing you need to remember is just how sensitive they are. This is the zodiac sign that will hide the second they think their feelings might get hurt, which means, long before they actually do!
Pisces is known for retreating to protect themselves from pain in love. Ruled by Neptune, they have a dreamy and intuitive side to them that soaks up the angst of the world like a sponge.
Anything that will make Pisces feel self-conscious or more vulnerable to pain will send them running back to their cave. So, always make your Pisces feel like the only one that rocks your world. Use their dreamy side to your advantage in love.
That’s right, play up on fantasies and dreams as often as you can. Tell your Pisces you had a dream about them (even if you didn’t!) and spill some juicy fantasies.
