Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac calendar and includes those born between November 22 and December 21. Idealistic, free living and fun-loving, they make for great relationships. So if you want to date a Sagittarius woman, here are a few ways to go about it.
TIP: Know your Sagittarius girl - ask her the right questions. Try 'Tell Me Honey...2000 Questions for Couples', the best-selling book available from Amazon.com.
One of the quickest ways to catch the attention of a Sagittarius is to talk about travel. These people simply love packing their bags and heading off for the unknown. Perhaps the most widely-travelled in the entire zodiac, no destination is to boring or too dangerous for a Sagittarius if it includes the prospect of seeing new sights and meeting new people. So after you have made the first few introductory noises, ask your Sagittarius date about the last vacation she took or the most exciting place she has been to. And you can be sure that the rest of the evening will pass in lively conversation. However once you are in a relationship with your Sagittarius girlfriend, be sure to take a trip with her every now and then even if it is just for a weekend or to the mountains in the next state.
Sagittarians are rather physical people and thus the outdoors is a great attraction with them. Hiking into the mountains or camping under the stars are some of the most romantic things you can do with a Sagittarius partner. Sporting events could also make great dating venues. So the next time you are stuck on where to take your girlfriend, ask about her favorite football team and then go buy tickets for the game her team is playing.
A Sagittarian is a bundle of crackling energy, hardly surprising considering that the ruling element of the sign is fire. Besides the outdoors, they dig anything fast-paced and with lots of action. Racing tracks and discotheques are other good options where a Sagittarian would like to let her hair down and have a good time. However make sure that it is not something completely against your preferences since beneath their fun-loving exterior, Sagittarians are also very sensitive to moods and nothing will upset her more than knowing that her partner is disinterested or worse, unhappy on the date.
A flip-side of the Sagittarian’s energetic nature is a tendency to get bored quickly. As soon as your date may have had a couple of drinks and dances at the nightclub, she might start fidgeting about and then brightly suggest a late night drive by the beach or river. Sagittarians have incredible stamina and can keep hopping from one activity to another when other stout-hearted guys can carry on no longer. However without enough activities to keep their energetic minds occupied, a Sagittarius can lose interest quite soon and can become moody and irritable. So while getting a Sagittarius woman may be fairly easy, retaining her interest may be much tougher and require some serious work. The best way about it would be to plan a series of activities which are fun, exciting and would keep your girlfriend on her toes.
Though a Sagittarian may be quick to fall in love, curiously enough they do not put much store by sexual intimacy. Even though their innate physical nature ensures that Sagittarians are sensitive to their partner’s sexual needs and are quite sensual themselves, sex does not constitute a driving force in their romantic relationships. Rather, Sagittarians look for intellectual compatibility, a shared love of adventure and the ability to maintain personal space in a relationship. So instead of pushing your Sagittarius girlfriend for a nightcap right after the third date, make sure that you have first established a comfort level with her. Nothing will make her run harder than a guy who wishes to pressurize her into something and that too into having sex before she is ready.
If you are interested in having a relationship with a Sagittarius woman, make sure you give her enough room of her own. Personal freedom ranks at the top among all other life priorities for Sagittarians. They can never feel comfortable in a relationship where they are expected to toe their partner’s line on how to live and love. They must have the space to pursue their own interests and interact with their own social circle which may or may not include that of their partner’s. Despite being in a relationship, they need the freedom to come and go. This is not to say they are incapable of fidelity but that they will not stand being ‘owned’ by their partners. One of the biggest mistakes you can make with a Sagittarius girlfriend is to hedge her in and expect her to change her lifestyle to suit yours. Like the arrow which bursts forth from the Archer, the symbol of the Sagittarius, she cannot be held back and will follow her destiny.
The frank and unfettered nature of Sagittarians makes them quite outspoken at times. You may be disconcerted when your girlfriend points out that your cologne is rather strong and the painting, which has made a substantial dent in your bank balance, is hung upside down. Quite often this frankness may be inappropriate on social occasions and you may find yourself wishing your girlfriend had the tact and diplomacy of a Libra. However a Sagittarian’s outspoken manner is never motivated by malice and it is simply a rather forceful expression of her highly individual personality.
The symbol of this zodiac is the Centaur – half-man and half-horse. In ancient Roman mythology, Centaurs were intellectuals and teachers which perhaps explains the Sagittarian concern with the really big issues of life. Their minds have far-thinking ability aptly symbolized by the Archer who looks ahead and takes his aim. So try to act in a principled manner around your Sagittarian girlfriend since she is likely to care deeply about matters like justice and fair-play.
The Sagittarius is an amazing combination of qualities. Fun-loving, carefree but also noble and expansive, they attract friends and admirers with ease. A committed relationship with a Sagittarius woman is unlikely to burn with the all-consuming passion of a Scorpio but it will light up your life with joy, optimism and a deep abiding companionship.
