Your Crush's Favorite Compliment, Based on Their Zodiac Sign
Everyone likes receiving compliments, as long as they're the right compliments.
That's because, when it comes to praising someone, one size definitely does not fit all. The words that will make one person glow with pride for a week might make someone else laugh right in your face, so how can you know which compliment to pay that person you really admire? Keep scrolling to find out your crush's very favorite kind of compliment, based on their zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): 'You never cease to amaze me.'
Aries is a sign that never sits still, and though your crush doesn't necessarily finish everything they start, it seems they're always up to something, which means they've racked up a few impressive accomplishments along the way. They appreciate when someone acknowledges what they've been able to achieve, thanks to all of the risks they've taken along the way—and a little flattery doesn't hurt, either.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): 'I knew I could depend on you.'
A Taurus prides themself in their rock-steady foundation and grounded nature, and most people take their reliability for granted. When you need someone you can depend upon, go to your crush and find out what an amazing job they can do. Not only will they notice the fact that you chose them in your time of need, but letting them know they're truly dependable will also make their heart skip a beat.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): 'You see the good in everyone.'
Gemini is a friend to all, and your crush values their connections with others above all else. They'd rather be familiar with every person in their class than super close with just one or two or them, and they're the first to reach out to anyone who might otherwise feel rejected or like a loner. Not many can perceive just how much work they're putting in, and letting them know you recognize their ability to care about everyone will truly brighten their day.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): 'You're the best listener.'
Chances are, your Cancer crush is a lot more sensitive than they let on. Even when they put on a tough exterior, they're probably a big softie on the inside, and they're an expert in all things pertaining to emotions. When others are going through something, they're more than willing to lend an ear and dole out a little advice, because they've been there. When your Cancer crush is there for you, let them know how much you appreciate that they truly listen.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): 'You inspire me.'
Leo craves the spotlight, and you've probably noticed that your crush is an attention-seeker who's the life of every party. But as much as they may hype themself up, confidence doesn't mean much to them if they can't spread a little bit of their joy to others. They're all about making people happy and setting an example, so if your crush makes you feel like a better version of yourself, nothing would make them happier than to hear it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): 'Is there anything you don't know?'
Virgo is the scholar of the zodiac, and it's likely your crush is top in their class and knowledgeable in a number of varied subjects. Whenever anything piques their interest, they investigate the subject until they're basically an expert on the subject, and often find themselves trying to work their newfound wisdom into conversations. They often feel that their insight goes unappreciated, so let them know how smart you think they are and boost their ego a little bit.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): You always know exactly what to say.'
Libra is a keeper of justice and peace, and it's likely your Libra crush balances their friendships very carefully. Though they aren't that good with conflict, they always find themselves in the middle of things, and are always trying to keep everyone happy in order to help them find the perfect middle ground. While this is important to them, it isn't easy. By letting them know that they're doing and saying the right thing, you can help them feel more confident about reaching their full potential.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): 'You're one-of-a-kind.'
Of all of the zodiac signs, Scorpio can be the toughest to pin down. Your crush probably keeps their distance from most people, only letting a select few in, and that mystery is part of what attracts you to them. They don't care to follow the rules or conform to anyone else, and that's exactly what makes them special. By telling them they're one-of-a-kind, you can let them know you think they're a unique soul and that you don't think they should change a thing.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): 'You're making me laugh too much.'
Sagittarius tends to be optimistic and unafraid to speak their mind, and your Sagittarius crush's sharp sense of humor might be one of the biggest reasons you like them. They see things a little differently than everyone else, giving them a uniquely funny perspective on most situations. They love it when they can get a reaction out of others, so when they have you laughing so hard you can barely breathe, tell them exactly how much you appreciate that.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): 'You always go the extra mile.'
No one works harder than Capricorn. It's likely that your crush not only strives for perfect grades, but is in more extracurriculars than any one person should be able to handle. They go above and beyond in every little thing they do, and while teachers and their parents tend to notice how much muscle they put in, their peers can see them as an overachiever or teacher's pet. Show an authentic appreciation for everything they do, and they'll definitely notice.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): 'You're a breath of fresh air.'
Aquarius' tendencies to be independent and original can also make them unpredictable, and since your Aquarius crush is always paving their own path, you never quite know what they're going to do next. Many people can find this kind of inconsistency frustrating, but they can't help their nature. If you actually appreciate that they're a leader, rather than a follower, they'll love hearing just how refreshing you find their behavior.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): 'I like the way you think.'
If you've gotten close to your Pisces crush, you've likely noticed that they're more of a thinker and a dreamer than a doer. Their imagination often runs wild, and they can spend their entire day daydreaming if no one steps in to stop them. But because they're not all that action-oriented, most people don't know how much they have to offer. Tell them that you like their ideas and that their dreams have value and you might just propel them to do something about it.
