Six Awesome Ways to Snag a Sagittarius Man (And Maybe Even Keep Him)
Sagittarius is the luckiest sign of the zodiac. Lucky to be alive, that is.
He’s the guy at work that makes fun of the boss to his face and somehow gets away with it. He trips over his own feet, falls on the ground, and finds a $100 bill under a garbage can. He gives you the best sex of your life, tiptoes out while you sleep, doesn’t call you back, and then greets you with a high-five weeks later as if nothing happened.
This man likes to live on the edge.
Now, you’re sure you want this lifelong bachelor? But alas: you do. You can get him for an hour or two, or maybe a whole night, but how do you actually keep him? Many have tried; few have succeeded. But there are ways, and they aren’t for the faint of heart.
First and foremost, act like you don’t care what he does. You know how cats seem to like people who don’t like cats? That’s pretty much how Sag rolls. Don’t expect anything from them and they’ll stick around. Make demands and they hide under the sofa and vomit. Sag needs to think it’s free to come and go. He calls you, but he won’t answer your calls. He won’t tell you where he’s going or who he’s with. Let him come to you, and he’ll keep coming, over and over again. Just don’t play hard to get: pushing and pulling is too much work for him, and since you’re putting in the effort to play mind games, he knows he’s already won. Just be independent like the modern woman you are.
Start a conversation about something most people would find uncomfortable to discuss. Sag doesn’t understand taboos or small talk. He doesn’t give a crap about your job what happened there unless you walked in on your boss masturbating. Then definitely tell him all about it. Sags just don’t take words seriously, the way that a fish doesn’t take a drop of water seriously while swimming in the ocean. So, whatever offends, infuriates, scandalizes, and confuses everyone else delights him. Just don’t tell him point-blank that you want to fuck him. That sounds too much like a commitment, and Sag doesn’t do commitment unless it is his idea
Go out with him for an exotic meal and pig out. Sags eat until there’s nothing left. Chances are that he’s permanently banned from at least one buffet, so try a regular restaurant. He wants you to choose, because given the possibility of choosing just one thing to the exclusion of all others throws him into a panic. And he fully expects you to partake in the joy of eating something new and interesting. He thinks pretending that you live on salad and iced tea is a horrible LIE, and he’d rather not be the only one who gets food in his hair.
He gets food in his hair, you know.
Stay outside. Sags are claustrophobic. They’re fine in their own basement, but put them in a room where there’s no actual activity – like a party – and they either create something to entertain them, like a fight, or beeline for the door. They don’t like crowded spaces, and they handle that by drinking … a lot, so think twice before taking him to a Thanksgiving dinner with all 80 of your closest relatives. If you want to see Sag at his best, stay outdoors.
Choose adventure and leave the heels at home. Sags likes to be outside and likes to be moving. They wander around, even when they don’t have to go anywhere. They’re at peace when they can move around on their own accord and take in the sights and sounds. They can duck into alleys and hide when the girl they were with last week comes walking by. Sag is perfectly content to spend the day hiking up a mountain, wandering the shops in Chinatown, or down the aisles at Wal-Mart at 3 a.m. on a weekday to see the locals in their natural habitat. Suggest a date that involves exploring a new neighborhood or hiking in the great outdoors and he’s game, especially if neither of you’ve been there before.
Meet him online first. Online dating is perfect for Sag because keyboards have delete keys but mouths don’t. He has a better chance of not putting his foot in his mouth if he has to think about what he’s about to say. He’s a poet and a scholar behind the screen. You can’t see the barbeque sauce on his shirt, or the fact that he hasn’t showered in three days. Of course, he’ll clean up if you (ever) meet, but by then, you’re already in love with his adventurous, fiery soul.
