The Type of Texter You Are, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Oh, texting.

Everyone does it, but some people are better than others at managing their digital relationships.

Ever wondered what the stars have to say about your texting style? Keep scrolling to find out what type of texter you are, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Impatient Texter

Oh, Aries. With your impatient and impulsive side, you're totally the person who will send 30 texts in a row if you don't get a response. You just don't understand how people are afraid to double text. If you don't get a response within two minutes, you're already thinking of the next 10 things you have to say, while texting in all caps to demand a response.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Instantaneous Texter

Your materialistic side means you're always by your phone, Taurus, but it's your reliable nature that makes you the instantaneous texter. Anyone who messages you can expect an almost immediate reply, which means you're always caught up in some kind of text convo. The only problem is that you expect an immediate reply back, and can get quite upset and anxious if other people take a minute to respond to your messages.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Ghosting Texter 

Ugh, Gemini—your two-sided personality makes you one of the most frustrating texters in the zodiac. One moment you'll be ready for a fun conversation, responding to each text within seconds, and then suddenly your natural inconsistency will kick in and you won't respond for hours—sometimes you don't respond at all! Thankfully, you're social and communicative, so you're always able to pick the conversation back up eventually, but your friends have learned that they can't count on you for a reliable text conversation.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Novelist Texter

You know why you're the novelist texter, Cancer. Your emotional mind can't be content with just a one-line response. You need to go into all kinds of detail about what you're thinking and feeling, even if you're just talking about something as simple as your dinner plans for the evening. Conversations with you are filled with longwinded text messages explaining exactly how you feel in excruciating detail. Your intense texting style, however, helps those you're closest to feel connected to you, so everyone puts up with the fact that texting you requires a slightly longer time commitment.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): GIF Texter 

You have a great sense of humor, Leo, and an ability to approach every situation with the most cheerful mindset. You're totally the person who responds to every text message with the perfect GIF. Your friends love that you bring a nice dose of fun to their day, and you love that you're admired for everything, even your texting style.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Planning Texter

You take a very methodical approach to everything in your life, Virgo, including your texting. You prefer a conservative, well-organized approach to your daily activities, and the only practical application you really see for texting is in solidifying plans. You don't really see the appeal of long text conversations about nothing in particular, and you won't usually respond to them. But when it comes time to make plans with your friends, they can expect responses in record time. Don't fault yourself for your dislike of texting—you're better at getting to know people in person, anyway.


Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Group Texter

You're one of the most social signs in all the zodiac, Libra, so it makes sense that you're the group texter. In fact, your phone is almost exclusively filled with group texts of all your different friends chattering away. It makes you feel connected to the world, and your justice-driven side likes that everyone has a fair opportunity to talk within a group text. Just make sure you don't make your groups too big—no one likes navigating a group text filled with 25 people they don't know.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Gossip Texter

You're quite the resourceful sign, Scorpio, which means you're always in on the hot gossip—and obviously you have to tell all your friends about it. Your texting almost exclusively consists of updating your pals on the news of the day and discussing the gossip together. While gossiping isn't the worst thing, you should be careful you're not spreading false information or really hurting someone's feelings in the process.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Non-Response Texter

Oh, Sagittarius—people should know by now that they shouldn't even bother texting you. Your free spirit and zest for life mean you're rarely around your phone, which therefore means that you almost never respond to any text messages. You prefer to live in the moment, experiencing everything the world has to offer, instead of being trapped behind a phone screen. If people really want to talk to you, they can call. Otherwise, they'll probably never get a response to their text.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Perfect Punctuation Texter 

You're quite the serious traditionalist, Capricorn, so the common shorthand texting style doesn't really work for you. Brb, tbh, omw—you truly don't understand why all these phrases can't be typed out. You take your time with your texting, making sure all your punctuation is in the right place and your they're, there's and theirs are all used in the right context. Sometimes your pals make fun of you for it, but you prefer to stick to practicality in your texting, rather than taking the chance that someone might misunderstand you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Emoji Texter

You're known for your eccentricity, Aquarius, and that definitely comes out in your texting. You prefer to respond to anything and everything exclusively using emojis, which can get quite frustrating for the people texting you. Making people guess at what you really mean is all part of your aloof personality, but it also means people have to be prepared for quite the confusing conversation before they text you.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Conversation Texter

Sweet little Pisces, you just love to chat. You're the person who texts people just to check in and see how their day is going. You love texting conversations that don't have any real purpose other than talking with someone. Your friendly and compassionate nature allows you to build some pretty strong friendships over text, and you love the ability to stay in touch with people, even when you're not in the same place.
