When it comes to love and commitment, everyone is looking for the same thing, right? Actually, that isn’t entirely true. Aside from the fact that we all have individual needs, our dreams and desires can change from one phase of life to the next. While some of us seek enduring love, others want something a little less binding, and perhaps a little more temporary. Some people seek the fun and spontaneity of dating, while others can hear wedding bells ringing in their ears from the very first “hello.” How does your Zodiac sign feel about long-term, committed love? How about your sweetheart’s sign, or that cutie you’re crushing on? If you’re hoping for lasting love, it helps to know whether your partner is likely to be open to a continually deepening and intimate bond. And if you’re looking for something a little more casual, it’s also handy to know which signs tend to be more open to spontaneous, possibly shorter-term connections. Read on to learn more about your Sun sign’s natural approach to intimacy and commitment in love.
In relationships, as in life, the progressive Water Bearer seeks the freedom to express its unique interests and highly individualistic personality. This sign tends to be rather social, and yet also requires plenty of alone time — two qualities that might outwardly seem not to mesh well with the demands of an intimate love affair. Furthermore, Aquarius tends to skimp on the sentimental frills of romance and might also shy away from intense displays of emotion — and yet, despite all that, this Fixed sign is actually built for commitment in love. While they may not wear their heart on their sleeve, Aquarius does seek lasting love with someone who understands them, through and through. For this sign, a strong friendship and intellectual connection form the stable foundation for a love that endures the test of time. Once that lasting bond is established, Aquarius makes quite a loyal and devoted partner in love.
