It’s that time of the year again. February 14th. Valentine’s day. Flowers. Dinner. A movie. Blah blah blah. The same old same-old. It’s not your man’s fault. He’s just suggesting what he thinks is the perfect Valentine date for you.
So, why not break with tradition and say to your husband, boyfriend or fiancé, “What do you want to do this Valentine’s? What’s your idea of the perfect date?”
You may well be pleasantly surprised.
But, just to be on the safe side, probably best to review what the typical Aries, Taurus, Gemini etc man considers the perfect date.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Aries Man
The Aries man likes good food, so there’s every likelihood he’ll suggest going for a meal anyway. However, the Aries man is also pretty impulsive, so there’s a very real danger he’ll suggest something completely out of left field. Possibly something sporty and exciting. Like abseiling.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Taurus Man
The Taurus man loves to cook, so he may well suggest eschewing the usual eateries in favour of a home-cooked meal. Now, we said the Taurus man loves to cook. That doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a good cook. If he is a good cook, however, it’s a win-win. He’s happy, you’re happy and you’ve saved some money!
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Gemini Man
The Gemini man is pretty much incapable of having fun to a schedule. He’s likely to say, “Let’s start with a quick bite at Romano’s and then see what happens.” His perfect date will consist of a series of interesting (in his opinion, anyway) and diverse vignettes. You’ll need to have plenty of energy to keep up.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Cancer Man
Before you ask your Cancer man what he wants to do for Valentine’s day, be sure to make it abundantly clear that it’s just going to be the two of you and it really wouldn’t be appropriate for his mother to tag along!
As with the Taurus man, the Cancer man enjoys cooking, so you can look forward to a quiet evening in being waited on and spoiled.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Leo Man
The Leo man likes to laugh, so he may well suggest a night out at a comedy club. He also loves gourmet food, so he could opt for a romantic dinner. However, if he does suggest dinner, he’ll want to go to the fanciest restaurant available.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Virgo Man
The Virgo man tends to be very cultured, so he might suggest an evening at the theatre, opera or ballet. The most important thing to remember when dating a Virgo man is never, never, be late. Not even a teensy bit fashionably late. For the Virgo man, punctuality is a virtue and lateness an inexcusable vice.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Libra Man
All Libra men have a deep love of music. He’ll suggest an evening of live music. Now, whether this is going to be romantic or not will depend upon his tastes. If he likes string quartets or intimate jazz clubs, you’ll be fine. If he wants to fling himself into the mosh pit at a Motorhead concert, you may find the evening lacks a certain romantic aura.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Scorpio Man
Well, if your partner is a Scorpio man you probably know exactly what he’s going to suggest. It won’t involve restaurants, flowers, violins or, for that matter clothing. The Scorpio man’s perfect date will take place between the sheets. However, he may surprise you and suggest a trip to the movies, particularly if there is a mystery or whodunit playing. The Scorpio man loves a good mystery.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Sagittarius Man
The Sagittarius man is a lover of good food. He also likes novelty. So, don’t be too surprised if he says, “Well, if it really is up to me, there’s this Inuit restaurant I’ve been hearing great things about…” The Sagittarius man may also suggest a night at the casino. He’s a lover of risk and enjoys games of chance. Depending on past experience, you may want to keep him as far away from any gambling establishment as possible!
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Capricorn Man
Of all the men of the zodiac, the Capricorn man is the one most likely to suggest a straightforward dinner date. Unlike the Sagittarius man, he prefers his food traditional and is a great lover of known quantities. The only danger is he may be inclined to take the shine off your dinner date by talking about work. Make sure you come prepared with an arsenal of non-work-related talking points!
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Aquarius Man
The Aquarius man is a lover of the weird and unusual. If you ask him to decide the nature of your Valentine’s day date, he could suggest just about anything. And we mean anything. If you’re lucky it’ll just be an evening of experimental street theatre. If you’re not so lucky it’ll probably be a whale autopsy.
The Perfect Valentine’s Date for the Pisces Man
The Pisces man is the most romantic sign of the zodiac and the one most eager to please. If you’ve been together long, he’ll simply suggest you’re idea of a perfect Valentine’s date. However, if you insist he choose something he wants to do, you’re probably in for a treat because the Pisces man has a powerful creative strand running through him. His natural empathy, however, will prevent him from dragging you to a whale autopsy.
Thanks for reading and, whatever you end up doing for your Valentine’s date, we hope you have a fabulous time!
