While all of the astrological signs have specific traits that set them apart from others, Sagittarius has some that can be rather difficult to handle for many people. This is especially true when the Sagittarius links up with either another Sagittarius or another sign that has similar personality traits to some of those that encompass Sagittarius. Even though another person may not possess all of the same traits as the Sagittarius, there may be conflicts handling actions that occur with those traits that are similar. It’s important to understand what Sagittarius expects in a mate before you allow yourself to become actively involved with this sign.

One of the first things Sagittarius expects from a mate is acceptance for what they are. Do not attempt to make Sagittarius in someone else or attempt to change them in any way. Instead of trying to execute change, you must be willing to compromise with them in order to prevent them from feeling confined. The Sagittarius mate will quickly become frustrated if he feels he is being constrained in the relationship and may even begin to entertain thoughts about finding other ways to express his naturally adventurous nature. You will immensely please your Sagittarius mate if you make the effort to engage in some of the adventures he enjoys. Certainly you are not going to enjoy everything, and he will not expect you to follow him everywhere he goes, but if you can compromise with him on some things and allow him to go about alone on others you will be well on the way to making him a much happier person to be around.

If you want to make your Sagittarius happy it is important for you to develop an understanding of how they work and what they expect from you in return. It’s important to understand the way the mind of a Sagittarius works. A couple of things you also need to know is their minds have a wide range of emotions inside that can cause the Sagittarius to fly on the handle with no warning whatsoever. You must learn not to take these outbursts personally because if you have done nothing to provoke them, you can be sure it is nothing you did. The problem is the Sagittarius has such an active mind that he may actually be thinking of something in his past that he feels he
could have done a different way and will actually become angry at himself for not knowing that at the time.

The Sagittarius is also a big talker and can keep talking for hours without even thinking about asking for your input. You want to avoid allowing them to continue in this manner no matter how interested you may be in what they are saying. Not only is the Sagittarius a wonderful conversationalist, they are also extremely brilliant and intellectual, but if you allow them to monopolize the conversation they may see you as witless and unintelligent both traits they would fine extremely boring. Sagittarius needs a mate that is on their level intellectually and with whom they can hold an intelligent conversation. They want your input and need to know that you have
something interesting and intelligent to add to the conversation.

and be idle. It’s important for them to be doing something, and if you want to be able to spend time with your mate, you must learn to accommodate that need. Even if you take a trip into the mountains and there is no one else around, it will be necessary for the Sagittarius to find something to do whether it means finding a way to make the cabin cozier or researching the surroundings to find out how others may have lived—he may even be tempted to research and think about what may have caused someone to build the cabin in which you are staying and why they chose the specific indoor and outdoor design.

Sagittarians are very curious individuals and have a need to find answers to every single question that enters their minds. When you buy a gift for your Sagittarius mate, stay away from simple every day gifts such as jewelry, clothing or music CDs. Instead choose gifts that will allow them to challenge their minds. A giant crossword puzzle or a book on a topic that interests them will be one they appreciate. Sagittarians need to stimulate their minds at all times, so you need to use that to your advantage when you choose gifts for a Sagittarius.

When you are with a Sagittarius mate you do not want to make any attempt to keep him on a leash. Sagittarians are not clingy individuals and do not find it necessary to depend on other people. Because they are so fiercely independent they will not tolerate restrictions very well at all. The Sagittarius must always be in control, so you must avoid attempting to dominate them. This action will cause them to walk away from the relationship—even if you are married. They will not hesitate to tell other people about the kind of person you were which could have a negative affect on any future relationships you might attempt to develop.

The most important thing to remember is Sagittarians expect you to accept them just the way you are without making any attempts to change them. Any attempt to try to change a Sagittarius will cause you to lose sight of not only your mate but also the relationship. These quick thinkers are always quite upbeat and happy and prefer to be around others who are the same way. Unfortunately they also can come across as rather conceited though not in an outward way. They tend to subconsciously brag to themselves about how great they are, thoughts that can sometimes project themselves into actions. You also must understand their need to dig deeper to find logical reasons for various thoughts that come into their minds while at the same time understand their obsessive quest for knowledge and love of life in general.
