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.
The sign of the Archer is known for its wide-eyed, adventurous and searching outlook on life. This optimistic sign seeks freedom and experience — two goals that can be rather incompatible with a monogamous relationship. However, while the common view of Sagittarius holds that this sign isn’t one to settle down, it really isn’t that simple. It’s true that Sagittarius has a lusty appetite for new experiences, and for some Archers, that can extend to love affairs. It is also true that this sign is more open to change than other signs might be, which can make it easier for Sagittarius to accept the natural end of a relationship and the exciting beginning of a new one. However, any savvy Sag knows that with the right partner — someone as optimistic, big-hearted and daring as Sagittarius — a long-term commitment like marriage can be the ultimate adventure, and exploring the uncharted terrain of the heart can take as much courage as any outward-bound escapade.
