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.
While it’s too simplistic to say that Aries isn’t built for commitment, this sign isn’t known for its follow-through. Rather, the impulsive Ram is known for falling hard and fast in love. Aries tends to leap first and look later, which can lead to getting involved with someone before they’ve really gotten to know them, or even determined whether they have compatible personalities or interests. The Ram’s main issue with commitment comes from the simple fact that such blazing heat can burn out fast if there isn’t enough substance to the relationship to keep the love fires burning. Thus, relationships for Aries can be rather hit-or-miss. Sometimes, this sign will jump into a new love affair that turns out to be an ill fit, while other times, Aries can luck into a connection that turns out to be the perfect match. Commitment works best for this sign when it’s with someone as strong and independent as Aries is.
