There are millions of reasons why couples who know each other well last longer than others.
Falling for a guy you hung out on a casual level can be scary. You don’t want to mess up a good thing, but maybe what’s good will become even better!
If you are in a relationship right now with your best friend, there is probably at least one thing that sticks out about your partner.
Maybe it’s his generosity or his luscious locks? Whatever it may be, each zodiac sign has reasons for being with their significant other, and when it’s a guy who accepts you for who you are, it’s even more wonderful.
A guy who is also your source of comfort understands your weaknesses and adores your strengths. He knows he is just as lucky to have you as you are to have him.
He worships the ground you walk on, and what more could you possibly ask for?
When you find a good guy and see the adoring qualities within him, don’t let him go!
As the Earth continues to rotate around the sun and the seasons come and go, you want someone by your side to see you through the good and the bad.
You were lucky enough to find a man who is a great guy, friend, and who cherishes your existence. When you stare into his big, beautiful eyes, you may see the special qualities he brings to your relationship.
You may also see a bright future with him because he has played an important role in the development of your past.
So, what does make him so perfect for you? From the strong-willed fire signs to the melodic and free-spirited water signs, each holds its own standards for a love interest, and he fulfills them all.
Because he understands your heart, he also gets your zodiac sign. It works because his love fulfills your needs.
As a friend he’s your partner, and as a boyfriend, he might just be where your heart belongs.
Here’s why falling for a man who has lived life with you through thick and thin in friendship is smart, by zodiac sign.
ARIES (March 21- 19)
As a fire sign, you are constantly looking for someone who matches your dynamic and competitive spirit. You are lucky to have a man in your life that celebrates your competitive nature and pushes you to keep asking for more.
He hypes you up when you are getting ready and knows he has a girl who doesn’t need help and can take care of herself. He drools over your strong nature. He even puts up with your various moods – he is a shoulder to cry on when you’re sad and then down to party when you’re happy an hour later.
He has no problem staying in pjs all day and watching scary movies or going outside to play a quick game of soccer. You’ve found someone who kicks life in the butt as hard as you – congrats!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
He aims to please you Taurus and wants to shower you with constant gifts and love. He knows your love language is material items that hold a lot of meaning – that cute scrap book he made for your anniversary speaks volumes to your heart.
You love when he touches your arm ever so slightly when you’re nervous to remind you that he’s there. As an Earth sign, you like to be secure and your guy certainly protects you with his whole being. Remember you are a very lucky lady the next time he cooks you dinner with romantic music playing in the background.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Air sign, you have the smooth ability to jump from conversation to conversation with undeniable wit. The boy you treasure most loves this about you and knows you can talk about anything under the moon. He reciprocates your curious nature, which makes you fall deeper in love each day.
When he asks you if you up to trying a new restaurant, you never hesitate to say yes! He knows you hate routine and when life getting boring, so he constantly tries to spice things up. Don’t let this special guy go, Gemini.
CANCER (June 21- July 22)
Water sign, your sensitivity and sympathetic nature makes your guy swoon over your sweetness. He knows the tiniest things make you smile and always tries to match your incredible imagination. You thinks of different date nights he can take you on: cooking with friends, taking an art class, or just staying at home, drinking wine and doing a puzzle are a few.
He knows your insecure nature can get in the way of truly taking your relationship to the next level, so he always reminds you that you are the most important woman in his life (except for his mom….sweetheart, right?)
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, he finds your leadership skills extremely sexy and knows he can count on you to take charge. He is in constant awe of how you handle even the most difficult of situations. Fire sign, you love life and welcome new hurdles with ease.
You adore how your guy can just enjoy the ride with you, without worrying about what is to come. He treats you like the queen you are – you want what you want and there is no harm in that. Get excited, because your next vacation is going to be planned by him and he plans on making it spontaneous.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, your meticulous nature makes you pay attention to even the smallest of details. He notices this and makes sure to have every little detail perfected before a date night. Even though some may view your shyness as a weakness, he adores this about you and tries to get you out of your shell.
He tries to break your all work and no play mantra by taking you out when you seem stressed. While you can act a bit stubborn towards the idea of letting loose, knowing he cares so much about your happiness makes you smile.
LIBRA (September 23- October 22)
Libra, you are lucky to have found someone who matches your melodic and harmonious personality. Your guy loves to keep the peace as much as you, but also will make the hard decisions when you don’t want to. You lift each other up without taring down the world around you.
You don’t like to be alone and hate not hearing back from him for hours at a time. To show he cares, he always makes sure to check in with you throughout the day. He even cleared out a closet at his place for you to leave your things when you spend the night – an actual prince charming.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, you may be the jealous type but yo have nothing to worry about when it comes to you boy. He always proves to you time and time again that you are the only one he has his eye on. You are very dedicated to living your life with full range of emotion.
He cherishes your assertive and passionate nature – honestly, he thinks it is pretty sexy. He is one to make a grand gesture and always plans an extravagant date night. He also know you hate beating around the bush, so he tells you right away when something isn’t going right. Honesty is the best policy when it comes to making a relationship work.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
As a fire sign, you are determined to make your dreams a reality. You never give up on your goals and are optimistic in all that you do. He matches your optimism but also lets you know when he thinks you’re in over your head – this has refrained you from doing something stupid, let’s be honest.
He knows you like your space, so he has his hobbies and you have yours. At the end of the day, you can chat about your days and feed off of each others experiences. He gives you your freedom and loves to watch you fly. Sounds like a super healthy relationship.
CAPRICORN (December 22- January 19)
Oh, Earth sign. You love your family and would do anything for them. You dream of having a family of your own one day and sometimes day dream about your future children. You are in luck, because your man also thinks about your future together.
He is a traditionalist and strives to set a routine for your future – yearly trips to the Grand Canyon, anyone? He also thinks you are a wizard when it comes to keeping calm and staying in control of your life. He learns so much from you and always reminds you how great of an influence you are on him.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, he loves your unique and nerdy side. From fighting for causes you are passionate about to staying with your friend after she had a bad breakup, you are always there for others. Just like you listen to his problems, he is always there to listen to you.
He knows you can sometimes overthink situations and he tries to bring you back down to Earth when you get in your head. He knows how to plan a perfect, simple night just for the two of you. You both thrive off a long, late night drive where all you do is talk about everything and anything.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, as a water sign you flow with everyone around you and are friendly by nature. You are overly selfless and that is what he loves most about you. Together, you believe in making the world a better place and instill kindness in one another.
He knows you adore the fine arts and music, so he tries to plan your dates accordingly. He will hunt down to the ends of the Earth to find that old Celine Dion CD you used to listen to as a child.
He knows you can be overly trusting, so he never takes advantage of that trait. Instead, he checks in with you and asks how you are doing both mentally and physically. He is always there to help guide you in life.
