Have you been looking for the person who will perfectly complement your life? We all know that dating on an arbitrary set of requirements is silly, but there is some benefit to choosing a partner who complements you personally. Even though the zodiac isn’t always the most reliable way to figure out who a person really is, it certainly doesn’t hurt to know what you’re getting yourself into.
But, of course, not all women follow suit with their astrological sign. For example, a woman who was born on the cusp of two different signs might have qualities from one, both, or neither. Likewise, someone’s moon sign can play into their compatibility, too – so it’s important to compare all the information before you make any final decisions.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way… Knowing what types of women will best complement you can be a great place to start. Use your own discretion, of course, but let the stars guide you in the right direction.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries women are turned on by success, so get you a woman who’s strong and independent. The perfect girlfriend for you will speak her mind, without being rude, and one who will happily take on any challenges thrown her way. (After all, she’ll have to meet your family eventually, and you know that’s going to be a challenge.)
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus women prefer just a touch of femininity in their partners, even if it’s hidden behind a masculine outer shell. The perfect woman for her will be supportive, yet daring – she needs to be taken out of her comfort zone every now and then. Most importantly, a Taurus needs someone to bring a little fun into her life, as it can be a bit boring being so stubborn all the time.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini women are turned on by humor and wit, and just a bit of sarcasm thrown in for good measure. They need a woman who is creative and smart, and would be best complemented by a woman with a beautiful smile. Gemini is a bit of a joker herself, so a sense of humor is an absolute must, but the woman who can lob the jokes right back is definitely a keeper.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer craves loyalty more than anything else. The perfect woman for her will be vulnerable and devoted – and, in turn, she’ll let down her walls a bit to meet in the middle. While Cancer women are generally the protectors in the relationship, they also need a woman who’s willing to lift them up when things get a little rough. Being strong all the time is hard, so she needs someone who can help stick the broken pieces back in place when needed.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo women need someone outgoing and opinionated – someone who will challenge her in all the right ways. The perfect woman for her will be someone who cares about the way she presents herself, but not necessarily the way that others see her. Leos are attracted to the whole package; they need someone smart, funny, and ambitious.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo women aren’t into that whole beauty queen thing, and in fact they’d rather be with someone who holds back a little than someone who puts it all out on display. Her perfect partner will value common sense over high-maintenance behaviors. Virgos also need someone who will put up with their little “quirks” (and they have many!) without taking things too personally. In fact, the less personal things get, the better – Virgo would rather her partner talk about current events than deal with those pesky feelings.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra women don’t take dating lightly, and they’re not going to be totally satisfied until they find their perfect match. Their demands aren’t super high, but they may keep one eye to the sidelines while they figure out if it’s a fit. They need a woman who will keep their attention while also being supportive and secure – they’d never settle for a woman who wasn’t self-assured. Once they find their perfect partner, though, they’re true soul mates, and there’s nothing they wouldn’t do to keep their partner happy.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio women are a textbook example of an alpha personality. They’re the best at what they do, and they need a woman who can keep up with their high expectations. In short, that means her perfect partner should be athletic, adventurous, loving, and smart, with just the right balance between passion and independence. (And, if she happens to be sexy, too, that’s just icing on the cake.)
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius women love being challenged, so she needs a woman who will amaze her and teach her something new. Her perfect partner has a lot of energy and enjoys adrenaline-filled activities, such as daring sex and heated debates. That doesn’t mean she wants someone with too much pushback, though – she also needs to feel stimulated, and if it’s all arguments all the time, there’s nothing to gain. The perfect woman for her will be an asset to her world, instead of a complication in it.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns don’t fall as easily as some of the other signs, but when they do fall, they fall hard. The perfect woman for her is going to be confident without being overbearing. She should have high sex appeal, but she keeps it for her partner’s eyes only. PDA is all but off the table, although once it’s just the two of them, she craves affection and attention. Since Capricorn has her own stuff going on, she needs a woman who does, too – she’s not going to settle for someone who needs someone to hold her hand, literally or figuratively.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius women need someone bold and independent – someone who doesn’t need her affection to get by. She’s looking for a self-starter who doesn’t mind being left alone from time to time. In fact, Aquarius women need someone who cares less about others and more about herself. She does her own thing, and she needs a girlfriend who does her own thing, too – regardless of how other people feel about it.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces women are quick to fall in love, but they can fall out of love just as quickly if the situation doesn’t quite fit. Pisces’ world revolves around art and nature, so she needs a free-spirited art lover to appreciate everything she has to offer. Her perfect partner is loving, kind, and accepting, and she should love animals – if things work out, they’re going to end up with a lot of cats.
