Lively and outspoken, Sagittarians believe in looking at the brighter side of things. People with this Zodiac sign are born between 22nd November and 21st December. The positive mantra that informs their daily life also colors their personal relationships and opens up untold worlds for their partners. Here are a few insights into dating and loving a Sagittarius man.
Sagittarians are nothing if not optimistic. If you are dating a guy born into this zodiac, you will find that even the worst kind of a Monday traffic or the rainiest of days in autumn is unlikely to dampen his pleasure in seeing you. He is ready to greet an unpleasant experience with the same smile that he lavishes on a happy occasion. This positive outlook is one of the most attractive qualities in Sagittarians and few people are able to resist the sunshine that radiates from these happy beings.
A thirst for knowledge is what distinguishes a Sagittarian from someone who is merely happy-go-lucky. If the man you are dating has an unquenchable desire to discover the unknown and learn about everything new that he comes across, chances are that he is a Sagittarian. Like the Archer which symbolizes this zodiac sign, a Sagittarius aims high at the star of knowledge and reaches for all that is waiting to be discovered. Your Sagittarian lover is equally likely to be thrilled at the prospect of travels to far and near destinations as of a quiet evening by the fireside with a good book since both entail encounters with rich unknown experiences. If you intend to keep this guy, make sure that he gets enough intellectual stimulation from you. Discuss with him his favorite books, rock bands and historical figures. You may find that the great explorers of seventeenth century Europe or the stalwarts of sixteenth century Renaissance constitute his ideal characters from the past. Intelligent conversation and a well-rounded personality are your best bet if want your Sagittarian lover to remain interested in you.
The best part about a Sagittarian’s search for knowledge is that it makes him liberal and open-minded. Unlike a Virgo’s meticulous scholarship which has a tendency to slide into pedantry, a Sagittarius exults in a more humanist and inclusive outlook. This means that if you are looking for a guy who believes in genuine and broad-minded partnership as the basis of a successful relationship, then your search is likely to stop with a Sagittarius. Men born under this sign are more likely than others to settle into a platonic relationship over a length of time so think twice if you believe that physical intimacy is the be-all and end-all of a romantic relationship. The all-consuming fires of passion are not for a Sagittarius lover, he would rather be your companion and soul mate for life.
The desire for crossing newer horizons which makes the Sagittarian a much-read and much-travelled man can also mean that he might disappear from your life every now and then. If you are the kind of woman who believes that two people in love with one another should be physically accessible to each other all the time, then perhaps a Sagittarius guy is not the one for you. From time to time, he may need a change of scene to make him feel alive. Being stuck in one task or place for long periods can make him feel tied down and claustrophobic. This is also one reason why Sagittarians are unlikely to be found living and working according to an artificially enforced routine. They thrive in artistic careers or those like medicine and social work which entail a lot of motion. This restlessness is not one every woman can understand, and often to a partner it may appear to smack of unwillingness to commit or undertake responsibility. However a Sagittarius man is a free-wheeling spirit and trying to pin him down will only make him more eager to break free.
A Sagittarian’s open broad-minded nature makes him a favorite among friends and family. He is fun-loving, jovial and easily highlights the brighter side of life. While all these traits endear him to people who know him well, a tendency to be outspoken on the other hand has been known to ruin some potential relationships for Sagittarians. Their unfortunate penchant for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and perhaps to the wrong person has been long the butt of many jokes. So if you are planning to take your boyfriend to meet the family over the holidays, be very careful of any ill-timed jokes about Aunt Jo’s new hairdo or Cousin Howard’s new squeeze. However as anyone close to a Sagittarius will be ready to vouch, his comments, no matter how unfortunate, are never malicious and because of his genuine good nature are always forgiven – eventually!
The downside of the proverbial Sagittarian optimism is that they tend to forget the practical side of life. With Jupiter as the ruling planet, a Sagittarian is thought to be Luck’s favorite child and therefore can be often found safely sailing through the many whirlpools of Fate. Whether this is the result of actual good luck or merely the workings of over-indulgent friends and family may be open to debate, but what happens over time is that such a Sagittarian begins to wander through life thinking that someone or the other will bail him out when the going gets tough. Discipline, hard work and being realistic are important life skills often missing in Sagittarius men. So if you are a woman who prefers security and predictability in her partner over a brilliant and versatile nature, maybe you should look elsewhere.
A relationship with the high-aiming Archer is not every woman’s cup of tea. It will require her to be patient with his wanderings, practical to balance out his high-flying optimism and intelligent to match the brilliant workings of his mind. However, in return, what she will get is a deep abiding relationship based on honest and genuine companionship. And as far as trades go, who wouldn’t want to settle for one like that?
