You've probably thought about dating by star sign, especially if you're the kind of person who religiously reads your 2021 horoscope predictions. If you've already downloaded all the best dating apps reviewed only to feel letdown, dating by star sign might be the solution you're looking for. After all, finding someone who aligns with your personality and desires can be a long search without the right criteria.
Astrology has been around for many years, exposing and capturing the things about us that we often don't recognize. It pinpoints the things that make us who we are, and it relies on the stars and celestial objects to illustrate what we may be, who we may love, and even who we may dislike. Whether you want to dig deeper into your own sign or the sign of a certain someone, here’s what you need to know about dating by star sign.
Dating by star sign: what does it mean for you?

Aquarius partners are known for having a natural calmness about them, showcasing independence and high social skills.

19 February - 20 March
Known and loved for being so in tune with their emotions, Pisces lovers are often some of the best.

If you can't keep up with quick-witted humor and a personality that draws everyone's attention, dating a Gemini might not be for you.

23 October - 21 November
