One of the worst parts of any relationship is conflict, and when you are dating a Sagittarius it is important to learn how to avoid any type of confrontations. One of the first things you need to learn is that you cannot control a Sagittarius, and if you attempt to try, you will find yourself on the outside looking in; in other words, your relationship with a Sagittarius will be over! Even worse, you may find your Sagittarius will discuss the type of person you were during the relationship even after it is over.
Sagittarians are very inquisitive and curious people; they need to find out everything about life and how they fit into the scheme of things. Even if you put a Sagittarius on a deserted island, he or she will find a way to investigate the circumstances and maybe attempt to find a way back to civilization. They are very brilliant and intelligent people and must always be thinking or doing something in order to remain happy. They are not content to sit on the sidelines and allow someone else to think things out for them nor are they content unless they are busy doing something.
If you are the type of person who is content to sit around and do nothing, you will not be happy with a Sagittarius. The same holds true if you are content with the status quo because Sagittarians are always looking to learn new things and challenge their minds. They do not like being idle either physically or emotionally. While even a child might throw a big crossword puzzle book at you, a Sagittarius is likely to find this type of gift very challenging and may even see you as a best friend forever for your thoughtfulness.
You should never attempt to hold a Sagittarius on a leash—they are not clingy and can make out perfectly well on their own. They do not need a relationship or someone to depend upon in order to feel their lives are complete. This does not mean they are unable to care about other people but rather that they are extremely independent and can live with or without another person in their life. They must always feel they are in control of their lives and their own destinies and do not like those who would attempt to control them.
You must accept your Sagittarius mate for the person he or she is. There are specific traits that are common to Sagittarians, and you must understand the way these traits affect the personality of the Sagittarius you are dating. They may even project an unconscious message that shows they know they are extremely awesome, but you don’t want to take this personally—it’s just the way they are, and they may not even realize they are doing it. They always have the need to find a logical explanation for everything, and you must accept this in order to maintain a sense of peace within your relationship with a Sagittarius.
