Do you love candlelit dinners and thoughtful gifts? Would you melt if your partner proposed to you in skywriting? Or would you be mortified if someone sent flowers to your office on your birthday or tried to propose to you in front of your friends?
How much you enjoy romance is something that your Zodiac sign may be able to tell you a lot about.
Libra, Pisces, and Cancer tend to be the most romantic signs. They love being in love and thinking of ways to show the other person just how much they care about them.
Aquarius, Capricorn, and Sagittarius tend to be the least romantic signs, finding these kinds of gestures uncomfortable, embarrassing, or unnecessary.
Let’s take a look at the romantic tendencies of all the Zodiac signs, ranked from most to least romantic.
There is nothing Libra loves more than being in love!
They are hopeless romantics, and they love the chase of finding new loves. And they never want that feeling to end, so Libras will always find an excuse to make big romantic gestures when they are in a relationship.
No, sending two dozen roses to your office place is not an over-the-top gesture, and having your favorite musician pop up at your anniversary dinner is money well spent in the eyes of Libra.
Pisces believes in true love and soul mate connections.
When they fall for someone they fall hard and they commit 100 percent, doing whatever it takes to keep their partner happy. Romantic gestures are just the tip of the iceberg.
Pisces is often the friend that you complain has changed after starting up a new relationship. They will make big sacrifices and mold themselves into what they imagine the perfect partner is for their chosen soul mate.
Cancer is traditional in their ideas of love, but they still dream of being swept away by it.
People born under Cancer can be very traditional in their idea of matchmaking. They probably think that the sensible matches suggested by mothers in Victorian novels are a good idea.
But the reality is that they want to be the hero or heroine of the Jane Austen novel that breaks tradition for the sake of true love. When they fall for someone, they are actively looking to make that “us against the world” journey with them.
Leos have warm generous hearts, and they love to share their passion.
While Leo’s often have the reputation for being egotistical and only thinking about themselves, the reality is that they have big warm hearts and lots of love that they are eager to share.
When they fall for someone, they want to show them the full force of their passion, and big romantic gestures are on the cards.
These will tend to be public, as Leo does like to be admired for their romanticism, but the gesture always comes from a genuine place in their heart.
Taurus love to wine and dine with sophisticated romantic gestures.
Taurus loves to be pursued in love, and appreciates being taken put to candlelit dinners and being presented with extravagant gifts under the stars. And when it comes to romance, they also give as they would like to receive.
However, Taurus can be pretty traditional in their idea of what makes a perfect match and a little superficial when it comes to choosing a partner. But when they do find the right person, things tend to just click.
Gemini love to pursue new love and always go for big romantic gestures.
When Gemini falls for someone, they fall for them hard, and they aren’t afraid to show it. They tend to become all consumed in their new partners, and live and die on every twist and turn in the relationship.
But, while Gemini relationships always start out intensely, they don’t always last long. Gemini have a wandering eye and will quickly move between partners, until they find the perfect match that can tame them.
Hard on the outside, Scorpio is looking for someone to love.
Scorpios tend to have sharp tongues and judgemental attitudes, which means that they don’t appear like the most romantic of signs. But all this spikiness is just a way of protecting themselves from getting hurt.
Scorpio wants someone who they can trust and who can see and love “the real” them. When they find that person, they will be committed and romantic. But expect regular rows!
Sensitive Virgo can get embarrassed by too much romance.
Virgo is another sign that lives on the defensive. They put on armor of perfectionism and let very few people see the true, vulnerable person behind the façade. But they are looking for someone that they can trust and let in.
Virgo can find both giving and receiving big romantic gestures embarrassing. But they also love deeply, and they will look for small but poignant ways to show people who matter to them how they feel.
Aries will pursue what they want, but their approach tends to be all about them.
People born under Aries are very aware of what they feel and what they want. If they see someone that they want, they won’t have any problem showing it and making grand gestures.
But Aries is less concerned about how the other person is feeling, so their actions are more about making themselves feel good than showing the other person just how much they mean to them.
Sagittarius are commitmentphobes and don’t want to mislead anyone with too much romance.
Sagittarius is that person that you meet one night and tells you how amazing you are. You have an intense and deeply romantic night, week, or month together, and then they are gone.
This doesn’t mean that all the things Sagittarius said they felt weren’t true. But they are commitmentphobes, and when things get too serious, they will run.
For this reason, they don’t tend to go for romantic gestures, as they know that this suggests that they are offering more than they are willing to give. They aren’t out to hurt anyone.
Capricorn can consider romance to be a little frivolous.
People born under Capricorn are ambitious and orderly. They live their lives according to their chosen regiment, and they don’t really like to break out of it, even for love.
They don’t like to compromise for anything, and might even give a groan of frustration when they realize that they have to cancel one of their regular activities for a romantic anniversary dinner with their partner.
It’s not because they don’t care, they are just a little inflexible.
Intellectual Aquarius also has an intellectual approach when it comes to love.
They will choose a partner that intrigues them and who they think that they are compatible with and “deserve”. They will often approach a connection as something that just “makes sense”, and doesn’t require a lot of work on their part.
Fiercely independent and private, Aquarius also tends to keep people at arms-length, and will probably feel embarrassed to be caught up in public shows of affection.
Are you a Hopeless Romantic?
While some Zodiac signs are more inclined towards romance than others, it is amazing how out of character and romantic a person can act when they find the right person.
But it is important to remember that just because someone isn’t into big romantic gestures doesn’t mean that they don’t care deeply. They might just have other ways of showing people that they care.
