Aries are the firstborns of the Zodiac world. Strong, opinionated, and honest these Rams will not toy around with your heart. You will absolutely know what kind of mood Aries is in because they wear their hearts on their sleeves. Aries are fantastic partners if you are an adventurous soul.
If you are the type of person that prefers a quiet life at home, Aries make great friends and close allies at work. Their courageous energy serves others well in times of distress. Aries are most at home with other fire signs, though the vibes can quickly turn hostile if there are several big Fire personalities in one room. A great first date with an Aries would be a night spent riding the biggest coasters at a theme park, followed by a spliff and all-you-can-eat sushi.
Sign element: Fire
Best matches: Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius

A perfect date with a Taurus would be a decadent meal featuring something like mashed potatoes topped with some pot butter, followed by a night in the hot tub and snuggling on the couch while watching an episode of their favorite comfort show. Bulls pair especially well with other earth signs and water signs but get along with many of the signs in the Zodiac. Keeping things grounded is a Bull’s main goal in life.

Gemini, life of the party, the ultimate event host, and smart as the day is long. These Twins embody many of the air sign traits. They love to be around people and they derive their energy from making other people laugh. They’re industrious, too. If you ever find yourself at a party with a Gemini and no pipe, don’t worry, they can show you how to craft one out of an apple in a heartbeat.
Twins can also be mercurial. They don’t enjoy boredom and they don’t get along well with those they deem bland or insecure.

Sweet, sensitive Cancer. Crabs are perhaps the most protective signs in the Zodiac. When a Crab decides you’re their person, that’s it. They will guard you with their life. Not only are they serious about loyalty, but they also often have a surprisingly silly side to them that they save only for their most favorite people.
A first date with Cancer looks like a candle-lit dinner cooked at home, followed by board games and deep conversation. If you can work in some strawberry pot pancakes for the morning after your date, you’ll be well on your way to capturing a Crab’s heart.

They’ll have a creative solution to your problem.
A perfect first date with a Leo looks like a beach clean-up or other do-good event where they can impact their environment and do some good.

The Virgo is the workhorse of the Zodiac. If you’ve ever walked into a room after a big party, only to discover the whole place has already been cleaned and made spotless — it was probably a Virgo who did it.
Virgos are gentle, sweet, and really appreciate the smaller details and ordinary moments in life. A perfect first date with a Virgo would be a night where every detail has already been taken care of.
Schedule a car to a concert, make sure the dinner reservation is already made, and have a sweet dessert ready to wrap up the night. Virgos do best when they are paired with down-to-earth signs like Earth signs (obviously) and water signs.
