Some people are natural flirts.
If they’re into you, they make it SO obvious you’d be a fool not to pick up the signs. But others can be shy, awkward and act like the total opposite of their normal, natural selves when someone they’re into shows up. So how do you know if these social-stumblers are actually potential love matches, or if they’re genuinely uninterested in your advances? And what if that shameless flirt you’ve got your heart set on, is just as outrageously forward with you, as they are with everybody?! It’s a mine-field! So how do you know if your crush is actually into you, or if it’s a lost cause, and it’s time to turn your attention someplace else?
Their zodiac sign is how!
These flaming fire-starters aren’t ones to keep their feelings in check. If your crush is an Aries, they’ll be all over you! When cupid hits, these folk suddenly lose all awareness of personal space – they’ll be dancing up against you, squeezing their seat right next to yours, touching your arm, your hair, your face…
Aries also has the habit of entering major show-off mode when in the vicinity of someone they like. So if your Aries crush tries to make you watch some crazy stunt or starts doing random silly tricks to get your attention (and admiration) then it’s likely you’re onto a winner!
Taurus are tactile, sensual, and enjoy a lot of body contact. So if your crush is a Taurus, and they like what they see, they’ll find ways to touch you, stroke you and share as much space with you as they can! These laid-back lovers aren’t phased by sparks of romance or attraction – for them, your advances are all in a days work.
But the funny thing about Taurus in love (or lust) is that these bulls of the zodiac have an uncanny way of attracting their love interests to them. They’re veritable human magnets. You’ll know your crush is into you when you’re both in a crowded room yet somehow you keep finding yourself right next to them!
This is the real way to find out how much THEY want YOU.
It can be truly hard to tell if a Gemini’s hot for you, as the twins of the zodiac are professional flirts with virtually everyone they know – that sociable, chatty, seductive way with words is the Gemini style! But one sure-fire way to know if your Gemini pal is crushing on you is if they go un-naturally quiet around you (say whaaaat? A Gemini with nothing to say!?)
If this rare-of-rarest occurrence seems to be happening, and you’re making your love-interest feel a little nervous, then this could be a very good sign…!
The sign of the crab goes all out when love is on the agenda. If a Cancer likes you, they’ll put their heart-and-soul into doing as much for you as is humanly possible. They’ll offer to cook for you, clean for you, bake for you (or just turn up at your workplace with a basket full of all your favorite goodies). They’ll also be constantly checking to see if you’re ok, complete with back rubs, arm squeezing, and hair-stroking and endless hugs that all seem to last just a touch too long…
Cancer wears their heart on their sleeve. There are no mixed messages when it comes to this watery sign of the zodiac, so if you want them, let them know!
Leos have a close inner circle, but if you’re not on the inside, you’re out in the cold and you’d better turn around and go home! If the king of the jungle HAS had got a soft spot for they’ll make you feel like a million dollars – affectionate and warm-hearted, you’ll be showered with grand, romantic gifts and gestures. (No, that’s not Leo trying to stake their claim over you, they’re simply want to make you happy, got that?)
Another giveaway sign that your Leo crush’s feelings are mutual are the in-jokes. Leo LOVES an in-joke and saves them for the ones they love best.
Your Virgo love-interest isn’t about to take a risk. Before deciding whether or not they’re serious about anyone (or anything) these practical professionals of the love-landscape want to know every little detail about what they’re getting themselves into. But if cupid’s arrow has hit, you’ll know by the number of questions they start bombarding you with, in an effort to gather up all the intel they need, before making any emotional commitment.
Once they’re sure about you … they’ll be tactile and affectionate and hand you their heart on a plate!
Romance, romance, romance!
A Libran will wine you and dine you, pull out the red roses and the posh chocs, taking the utmost care (and pleasure) in curating the perfect scenario for love to blossom. Ruled by Venus, this sign was born for this moment! If your Libran crush likes you back, well, you’re about to enter a fairytale!
BUT a little too much love can go to the Libran head, turning them into the definition of infatuation, and making them lose their minds a little…. If your Libran crush is acting a little ditsy, forgetful, and unusually cute then love could be in the air!
There are NO half measures where Scorpio’s involved.
This sign is seductive. If your Scorpio crush is as into you, as you’re into them, you’ll be entranced – this sign is literally an artist of attraction. Which means that when you’re together, it will feel like there’s nobody else in the room. The sexual energy between you will be palpable, irresistible (yep, Scorpio has a knack of conjuring this up from the depths) so expect this affair to be passionate and intense to the end. Are you game? You better be.
Like it’s opposite, Gemini, the playful and spontaneous sign of the centaur can be a tricky one to read in the realms of the heart.
Sagittarius lives life as one long adventure, so if the feelings between you and your fire-sign crush are mutual, they’ll likely invite you along on a whirlwind romance! BUT… here one minute, gone the next. Don’t be surprised (or put off) if you’re dropped as quickly as you’re chosen. This doesn’t mean you’re NOT the match made in heaven that you’d SO love… this emotionally detached sign is just full of surprises. If you really are one of the lucky ones, let them fly free, and they’ll come back.
Crushing on a stable, secure, rock-of-the-zodiac Capricorn? This earth sign’s unlikely to declare their undying love for you, but what they will do is all that practical stuff that you never get round to doing for yourself…
Need help fixing your car? Putting up that shelf in the kitchen? or even getting that darned tax return submitted? Your Capricorn crush will somehow get wind of exactly what hands-on housekeeping is holding you back, and be there.
They’re also the most likely sign to uphold the more old-fashioned etiquette of courtship – holding doors open, giving you flowers, paying for dinner, etc. So if you want to impress, appreciate the finer touches they bring,
This charismatic corner of the Zodiac isn’t as emotionally gushing as some signs (hello Cancer & Pisces!) In fact, the water bearer’s deadpan humor and emotionally detached ways may keep you guessing indefinitely…
Aquarius has a uniqueness that is alluring to a lot of people, so you never quite know if their attention’s aimed at you or somebody else (and they kinda like it that way.) But when it IS YOU they’re into, this rule-breaking rebel will be sure to leave you a trail of signs. Like the eye contact, they’ll hold from across a crowded room, to let you know that obscure and intellectual anecdote was meant for you. Or the scent they’re wearing when you meet them by chance, the one you mentioned you liked as a passing comment three months ago…
If you’re crushing on a mystical and dreamy Pisces, and there’s a spark of interest coming your way, they’ll likely get shy and more than a little coy in your company. As highly emotionally-tuned-in folk, it’s hard for these water-born folk to wear their hearts on their sleeve… yet… they won’t risk being vulnerable until they know they’re safe with you.
But when the coast is clear, let the romance flow! Your Pisces love-interest will probably tell you that you’re “meant to be together”, or that “it’s written in the stars” (and they literally mean it!)
