If you want to live peacefully with a Sagittarius, it is important to understand how they work and what they expect from you as a mate or dating partner. One of the first things to understand about a Sagittarius is they their minds have a wide range and could burst without you even expecting it. They also possess the gift of gab and can talk for hours without even taking into account any of your input in the conversation. At the same time you want to avoid allowing them to just overtake the conversation because at same point their need to converse combined with their overwhelming brilliance could cause you to appear witless, a trait that the Sagittarius would find rather boring.
No matter where you are with a Sagittarius, keep in mind they do not like being idle and want to spend every moment of their life doing SOMETHING. Even if you become stuck on a deserted island, the Sagittarius must be busy doing something, even if it means searching out everything on the island to attempt to come up with a way to get back to civilization. They have a keen sense of curiosity and will use it to find answers to all the questions that enter their restless minds. When you buy a gift for a Sagittarius, consider something that will allow them to challenge their minds such as a giant crossword puzzle. You might even find them interested in some bungee jumping—it challenges their mind as well as their sense of adventure. They will find the invitation even more attractive if you are fearful of heights and still make the offer.
You never want to attempt to keep a Sagittarius on a leash. They are not clingy and do not have the need to depend on anyone other than themselves. Their independent nature does not allow them to have any tolerance for restrictions. If you are in a relationship with a Sagittarius and attempt to dominate them, they will not hesitate to walk away from you and even tell other people the kind of person you were. What it really comes down to is that Sagittarians must be in control and will not be happy in any relationship where they feel they are losing control or when you attempt to control them.
You must accept a Sagittarius the way he or she is. Do not attempt to change them in any way or you will lose sight of the person and even the relationship. They are quick thinkers and very upbeat and happy sometimes with a tendency to brag subconsciously about how great they think they are. You can’t take this personally but must accept it as part of the personality of a Sagittarius. They will always want to dig deeper in order to find a logical reason for anything that comes into their minds. It’s important for you to understand their quest for knowledge and enthusiasm for life in general.
