You've probably thought about dating by zodiac 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 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.

Aquarius partners are known for having a natural calmness about them, showcasing independence and high social skills. In the dating world, you may find that sense of independence to be the main key in finding a partner. Aquarius-born people often don't like to be tied down and while they're typically open-minded, they tend to have high standards and need their alone time.
