How You Act Around Your Crush, According to Your Zodiac Sign

We all act completely different around the person we're crushing on, depending on who we are.

Some of us are more flirtatious, while others tend to immediately shut down at the mere sight of our crush.

Based on your zodiac sign, we bet we can guess how you carry yourself around the person you have eyes for. Keep scrolling to see if we're right.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Goes for It

You're one of the most confident signs, Aries, so it's no wonder you aren't afraid to just go for it when you like someone. You don't have the patience to sit around and wait for them to make a move, so you do it yourself. You can come off a bit strong, but it almost always works out in your favor. Not many people can resist your self-assurance.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Gives Gifts

You're a romantic at heart, so the way you try to get on your crush's good side is by showering them with gifts. It usually starts out as something simple like a piece of gum or a cookie, and then you'll move on to bigger things you saw that reminded you of them. The way to anyone's heart is food, so you're pretty practical in that sense.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Runs Hot and Cold

One minute you'll be super into your crush, going on and on about how much you adore them. And then the next, you're completely over them. This is because you're ruled by the twins. Your feelings towards someone will change at a moment's notice, so you and your besties can never be too sure whether or not you're crushing that hard on someone. Ah, the mystery.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Avoids Crossing Paths

While you tend to have a ton of friends, you're a pretty shy sign who isn't the best at dealing with their emotions. Rather than express them, you wait until you're all alone to let them all out. This is why you tend to avoid your crush as best you can. You know you wouldn't be able to have a chill encounter with them, so you go out of your way to make sure you don't bump into them.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Flirts Uncontrollably

You're a master flirt, Leo. You know what to do to get people to pay attention to you and ultimately fall for you, which is why you're never not in a new relationship. So it's no surprise that when you're crushing on someone, you pull out all the stops. You get your flirt on and you have no shame in doing so. After all, the chase is all part of the fun for you. And, of course, you always end up getting what you wanted.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Shuts Down

You're very much an introvert, Virgo. You have friends, but you prefer to spend your days indoors watching your fave TV show or reading a good book. You don't have a problem being around your crush, but when they start to ask you about yourself, you immediately shut down. You get all sorts of shy and quiet, and you let them do all the talking. Don't be afraid to speak up every once in a while.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Makes It a Point to Invite Them Everywhere

You're a people person, Libra. Your sociable nature makes it easy for you to befriend others. It's perfect for you, because you detest being alone. You absolutely cannot stand doing anything on your own. When you have a crush on someone, you make it a point to invite them to anything and everything. Whether it's going to your school's football game or the movies with a bunch of your friends, you'll constantly reach out to see if they're interested in tagging along.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Plays Hard to Get

Being the mysterious creature you are, you like to take people on a ride. No one's ever really sure what they're going to get with you, but you wouldn't have it any other way. While others panic or freak out around their crush, you keep your cool. But you make sure they know you're pretty into them. Once they show an interest, you start playing hard to get. Don't hate the player, hate the game.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Keeps the Jokes Coming

Optimistic and cheerful, you have a knack for brightening anyone's day, Sagittarius. Your fantastic sense of humor keeps everyone laughing and feeling that much better. Obviously, you use this to your advantage when you're crushing on someone. You know anyone who hears your jokes and witty retorts will instantly fall for you, so you keep the jokes coming. It really is astounding how you can keep the quips coming like it's no big deal.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Tries Hard to Get to Know Them Better

Having a crush on someone is a big deal for you, Capricorn. Once your crush develops, you set your sights on getting to know as much about them as possible. You don't want to waste your time on someone who isn't in it for the long haul, so you work tirelessly to learn everything about them. You'll ask them questions yourself or spend countless nights scrolling through all their social media feeds. It's always best to do your research beforehand.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Acts Normally

No one really knows when you have a crush on them, because you act pretty normally. The only way someone would realize you have a crush on them is if you explicitly told them, because you're that good at hiding your true feelings. You don't do it on purpose though, it's simply part of who you are. If only the rest of us were as lucky as you.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Pretends They're in a Rom-Com

You practically walk around with heart eyes when you have a crush on someone, Pisces. You can't do anything without thinking about them, so you like to pretend you're in a romantic comedy. You are known for having your head in the clouds, so it's not a shock you leave reality for the fantasy world where you and your crush are basically Betty and Jughead on Riverdale. Unfortunately, real life isn't like TV.
