So you meet a guy and he’s perfect. He has these amazing eyes, a gorgeous smile, athletic physique and O.M.G., he’s asked you out. You don’t know what to do because the last time this happened, you got yourself into a (seemingly) perfect relationship and it ended up blowing up in your face. Hard. After the honeymoon phase was over, you didn’t know how to talk to him or simply get along. At first, he was all over you then one day he just stopped calling. You asked about his zodiac sign to make sure there was compatibility. He was an Aries and you’re a Leo. They’re supposed to get along. What happened?
Don’t beat yourself up. In an ideal world, a guy would come with a dating manual with clear and precise instructions on how to attract him and, equally, how to repel him. But that’s not reality and the closest thing you have is knowing his zodiac sign. Depending on his sign, your guy will express his love nature in a different way, including his general likes and dislikes. While his sign might generally be compatible with yours, make sure you’ve covered your bases. Maybe you didn’t know that Mr. Aries didn’t like you talking to other guys but you’re just being a Leo and thought it was harmless. Boom! There goes your fire sign compatibility out the door.
While it’s great to know how to attract him, you also need to know how to keep him and that involves knowing what can push him over the edge. There’s always something he can’t stand and that might just be his deal breaker.
