A useful checklist of egoistic behaviours each sign displays when attempting to seduce someone into their starry force field of lurrve.
Aries – If a Ram is into you, they won’t be shy about showing it. Do their eyes light up when you walk in the room? If so, they’ll quickly initiate conversation with their best friendly face forward and an aura of pure adrenaline. I also wouldn’t be surprised if you catch them surveying your anatomy as they make the bee-line towards you. Don’t think you’re Columbo, though. It was an accidentally-on-purpose move to signal their interest. Fueled by a lust for life, expect some play-fighting and don’t be offended if they say something they thought would be funny but is actually just mean – they’re trying to show you some affection without looking weak. It’s a delicate balancing act for a sign who hates feeling vulnerable.
Taurus – It’s all in the eyes. Is your Spring-born friend burning a hole into your back? I get you’re facing the opposite way but…you can feel the glare. A Taurus lives firmly in the material world so once they have a crush on you, you’re basically already their possession. Dependent on the depth of feeling, it will take some time before they make a move officially because steady relationship-building occurs in the meantime. Please, don’t bother explaining that your aunt Deborah just got married again because they Facebook stalked your profile pictures and basic info’ section as soon as the first butterfly fluttered inside their belly. Any flirting will be done through getting more tactile with you as you’re shown their softer side. These Bulls will win you with slow dedication.
Gemini – BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. Are you hearing a lot of that on a regular basis? Excellent. You have managed to sufficiently sustain their attention for more than 2 minutes! You must be a hoot. Their nervous disposition will magnify in your presence. If a Gemini is talking to you the most, you’ve got to keep their interest with your conversational skills. You’ll receive a lot of messages that vary from the mundane ‘hey’ to the extravagant ‘I remember you saying you liked ___ and I also like ____’ because they crave an intellectual bond above all things. Then they’ll go off the grid for a few days while they change their minds about you. Weirdly, inconsistency is a good sign because it means you’re being considered, and not just anyone will do for picky Gemini!
Cancer – How are you feeling today? Is your mum feeling better? Can I offer you some advice on that minor issue so I can gain your trust as a reliable stepping stone to winning you over? Cancerians are in-tune with their emotions and as such, emotional support comes first. All texts are returned reliably and well thought-out, with emojis and a gradual release of private information they don’t just tell anybody. You’ll receive ‘hello and goodbye’ hugs too. It’s always a sweet affair when they want to woo you. As a sensitive sign, watch out for them being off with you for being slow to respond on Whatsapp or something else seemingly insignificant. Sentimentality is a part of their genetic make-up. Be gentle: to them, love is everything.
Leo – Are you ready to enter into a grandiose love story? Good. So is your Leo crush. They are experts on how to flirt and it’s all textbook moves: fluttering eyelashes, charming remarks, expressive body language… What you have to understand is that you can’t just say ‘thank you’ to a compliment. That expectant look on their face? It’s in danger of turning into a flustered eye-roll if you don’t admire them right back. Their fantasy is to be in a power couple so they’ll push you towards that dynamic by acting as if you’re already long-time lovers. When you’re around they’ll put their best show-stopping theatrics forward so they have your full attention. If they have money, they’ll buy you gifts. If not they’ll convey affection through their most lusted-after commodity: their time.
Virgo – It’s all in the details. A Virgo is emotionally detached by proxy of their perfectionism and fear of failure. When you speak, they’ll ask a lot of questions to determine whether you tick all the boxes on their ‘Potential Human Mating Partner‘ checklist. Incredibly thoughtful types, they’ll remember every minute of conversation you have. Here’s an example of them digging you: “Don’t you have to drive to Liverpool this Saturday? It’s forecast to snow so avoid setting off until 11am. If you want, I’ll help you de-ice your car so you can get away quicker.” It won’t all be sweet gestures of doting service, and here’s where you scratch your head – they’ll openly criticise you. You’re slicing that lemon all wrong, your hair isn’t as neat as it was yesterday, you don’t know how to spell ‘occasionally. Frustrating though it may seem, it’s a sign they care. If a Virgo is speaking to you, it’s likely to be exclusive. Go easy on the displays of affection.
Libra – Watch out for that infamous charm offensive. People pleasers to the core, a Libra flirts with everybody so they can win their favour. If they flatter you, I wouldn’t take it personally. Deep down, every Libra believes they have player potential. But away from the superficiality, they have idealistic fantasies about harmonious partnerships where nobody argues & nobody gets hurt. If genuinely interested, their earnest side shows. Cue sweet smiles (instead of the pacifying saber-toothed grin), laughing at every joke you make, and interesting conversational pieces. That band you mutually love will be slipped into conversation. Logic is their lover, and you are the mistress they blow hot and cold with while they disguise their commitment issues in pursuit of other pleasures. Like hanging with their buddies; friendships don’t come with messy feelings. If you’re special, you do. And if you’re patient, you’ll have a loving partner to build with. Just give them space, and keep up your appearance while you’re at it. It’s important to these Venusians.
