There are just a few basics that need to be explored when you first start dating someone. Where is he from? What does he do for a living? Oh, and most definitely, when’s his birthday? This isn’t just for remembering when to send that “happy bday :)” text! Knowing a potential boo’s zodiac sign can really help in understanding his behavior. Astrology helps us break down personality traits, pet peeves, and, yes, even dating patterns. It can be fun and informative to look up his sign, and how yours works with his.

When it comes to compatibility, Scorpios are a great match for Geminis. They have endless depth that piques Gemini’s natural curiosity. A Scorpio won’t think twice about Gemini until they’re absolutely positive that they’re willing to commit, though. For similar reasons, Aquarius is another good match—this fellow Air sign has a unique and complicated personality that keeps Gemini coming back for more. Gemini also clicks with fellow Air sign Libra—they both value communication and really *get* each other.
Sex with a Gemini:
Witty and curious, Gemini is all about variety. Their sexting puts Fifty Shades of Grey to shame, and they’ve got an erotic bucket list they want to work their way through with you. Share a hot fantasy with a Gemini, and it’ll quickly become a reality. Just don’t expect to live it out every night—Geminis think routine is pretty boring, and they’re already suggesting something new.
All about Gemini:
Gemini, the mutable (aka flexible) third sign of the zodiac, is an Air sign—extroverted, talkative, and always on the go. He needs constant mental stimulation, and with Gemini, there’s no such thing as a stranger—just a new friend waiting to be made. He’s not the most romantic, but having him around will always guarantee a memorable time. He’s his own dynamic duo and has a wide multitude of personality traits, interests, and more brainpower than he knows what to do with.
Expect to increase your friend group three times its size while you’re dating this air sign. Everywhere you go, he bumps into one of his buddies, an old classmate, or a friend of a friend of a friend he met once, and strikes up a conversation. He’ll get you to join in, too! Even the most socially-reserved person can pick up some conversational skills from their Gemini partner.
Geminis love to learn, and he needs to have his brain constantly stimulated in order to maintain interest in anything (or anyone). You can have rich, fascinating conversations with him that make you lose track of time, but you also have to entertain and intrigue him too–he wants to know what you think, and if it’s actually interesting. He’s also incredibly mischievous, funny, and playful, thanks to his ruling planet being Mercury, the trickster god. His strong sense of youthfulness is refreshing to be around, and you won’t ever feel bored with him, including the bedroom, where he happens to be very open-minded and down for anything.
Being an Air sign, your Gemini has feelings–enough for the both of you–but prefers to analyze and talk them out. He’s quick and impulsive with everything he does, including what he says–he’ll just blurt it out and carry on. Despite Gemini’s reputation for being two-faced, what you see is what you get, even if it feels inconsistent at times. You won’t have to deal with indirectness or guessing games with this one as much as his changing moods.
As absolutely invigorating and exciting as it is to date a spontaneous Gemini, it also comes with some downsides. To keep him interested, fulfill his need for entertainment, otherwise say adios. He’ll text or call one of his millions of pals and find something to do with them instead, and tends to put his friends above the relationship in general. Even if your Gemini boy-toy is now the most respectful guy, there’s a chance that he used to be this way when he was younger.
On a broader scale, his adaptability can create a lack of consistency with his mood, interests, and personality. Yes, he can develop great ideas and opinions, but wouldn’t a bit of stability be nice? It can add pressure to the relationship because you feel like never have him figured out, while at the same time knowing that you also have to keep him on his toes to keep him interested. Because if he gets bored, he could head to the next adventure or relationship without looking back.
To make it work, you have to be a good listener and have a sharp enough wit to quickly respond to him. It’s also good if you demand just as much freedom and space as he does. At the end of the day, when the two of you are alone at home, he can devote as much time as you want to you. He’s not gushy with his feelings, but he can you make laugh after a rough day and can talk you through it, which can be more helpful than just being a shoulder to cry on. Let your inner child come out and play with him, and you’re set.
