The zodiac signs and making the first move
Have you met someone that you really like?

If the person you’re interested in is an Aries, you need to ask yourself the following question: Are you looking for a fling or a permanent thing? If all you want is a fling, then go for it – ask them out! If you’re looking for something more long-term, though, you have to show patience and let them take the initiative; after all, they love themselves a good romantic challenge!
Taurus likes to take their time before making a move. They resent being pressured into making a decision before they’re ready. If you believe in striking while the iron’s hot, they’re not your type! You have to take things slow, wait until the two of you have gotten to know each other better, and go about it in a smooth, subtle way.
Gemini doesn’t care who makes the first move – it makes no difference to them. They let things flow naturally, and usually welcome being openly flirted with as much as they enjoy taking the initiative themselves. So if you’re into a Gemini, don’t be reluctant about it. Find a smart way to let them know – they’re sure to appreciate it!
Unless they’ve known you for quite some time and have good reason to believe their feelings are reciprocated, the shy, sensitive Cancer is unlikely to make the first move. They fear rejection too much to risk being turned down. So if the idea of waiting until they feel ready to take a chance doesn’t excite you, you have to take the first step yourself – preferably in a not-too-aggressive manner.
Leo is so used to having people openly express their admiration and affection for them that they often end up growing bored of it. They get that a lot, so in order to make a lasting impression on them, you need to be different and stand out from the flock. You’re better off letting them initiate things; before you know it, they’ll be purring in your arms!
Virgo doesn’t like to play games. They think it is childish to be deliberately ambiguous about one’s feelings, so winning them over doesn’t take coming up with a grand plan or a complicated strategy. They appreciate honesty in their potential partners, so the best thing you can do is let them know you’re into them in a way that is straightforward and spontaneous, but also polite.
Libra may be playful and flirty and all that, but they’re also notoriously indecisive, so they rarely take the initiative. They’re capable of flirting their heart out with you one moment, only to get involved with someone else the next – someone bold enough to make the first move themselves! So don’t waste another minute – be assertive about it!
The secretive, mysterious Scorpio rarely expects the other party to take the wheel! When they’re really attracted to someone and confident that it’s worth their while to give it a go, they rarely hesitate to make the first move. So there’s no need for you to rush things; just do your best to make them feel that they can trust you, and they’ll do the rest.
Sagittarius knows no inhibitions! They’re very forward-thinking and truly relish playing the game of seduction. They enjoy being flirted with as much as they enjoy being proactive and taking charge themselves. So if you have a crush on a Sagittarius and the attraction is mutual, all you have to do to get what you want is hint at being interested in more than mere flirting.
Capricorn tends to be reserved and traditionally-minded, so they generally don’t appreciate bold overtures of romantic interest. If you’re into a Capricorn and looking for something permanent, you’d be well-advised to test the waters very carefully before going out on a limb, or you run the risk of coming off as too frivolous or irresponsible for their taste.
The progressive, open-minded Aquarius has no taboos! They love making the first move themselves, but they also love being surprised by having the other party take the initiative. So if you’re attracted to an Aquarius, don’t be shy or reluctant about it! Go ahead and let it be known – chances are they will welcome it!
The sensitive Pisces usually finds it hard to be proactive in romance. When they develop romantic feelings for someone, their fears and insecurities get the better of them, so they keep stalling, and stalling… and stalling. You have two options: You can wait an indefinite amount of time for them to muster up the courage to let their feelings show, or you can take charge yourself.
