Dating A Pisces Woman: 10 Things You Should Know

Born at the very end of the zodiac, Pisces women are natural dreamers. Nurturing, emotional water signs, these women love taking care of the people they date. But there’s more to dating a Pisces woman than meets the eye. Read on to find out what you have to know about dating the zodiac’s resident procrastinator, the Pisces woman.

  1. Her feet aren’t on the ground. Pisces is known for being the one sign in the zodiac who is constantly away with the fairies. If you’re looking for someone who’s down-to-earth and realistic, this may not be the best sign for you to date. Pisces women have vivid imaginations and prefer to spend time daydreaming than living in the real world.
  2. Her emotions may rule her. Being a water sign, Pisces women tend to be quite emotional. There may be times when she acts out of emotion rather than logic, which can be frustrating for her date. This sign just feels emotions more intensely than other signs. That can make her feelings—both good and bad—impossible to ignore.
  3. She may hold a grudge. This sign has a reputation for being gentle, loving and caring. But if you get on her bad side, she is known to hold a grudge. Because Pisces feels things so deeply, it can take her a really long time to get over something. Sometimes, a Pisces woman will hold things against you even after you’ve apologized. It can take a while for the hurt and anger to pass.
  4. She may be overly sensitive. As mentioned, Pisces women are known for being super sensitive. When it comes to dating, she can sometimes take things the wrong way. That’s why this sign isn’t usually a good match for someone who is overly bold and careless with their words. She’s better suited to someone who articulates themselves clearly and takes care not to say things that are insensitive.
  5. It’ll be hard for her to accept help. Pisces is a natural carer. Like her fellow water sign Cancer, she prefers to be the nurturer than the one being cared for. So it’s usually hard for her to accept any kind of help. She can often feel like she’s failing if she needs to rely on the help of her partner. That said, she doesn’t judge anyone else for needing her help. This brings us to the next point…
  6. She will be super nurturing. Pisces is built to look after people. She naturally takes on that caring role in the relationship because it’s in her nature to be nurturing. If you’re dating a Pisces woman, try to let her look after you as much as she needs. This sign often finds purpose in caring for others and it leaves her feeling fulfilled.
  7. She can be clingy. Generally speaking, Pisces women can be more clingy than average. When she finds someone she really likes, she tends to be want to be around that person all the time. If you’re the kind of person who needs a lot of me-time and personal space, it’s important to communicate those needs from the beginning.
  8. She may overstep your boundaries. At times, Pisces women can cross the line and fail to respect your boundaries. Mostly, she’s just trying to help. But she tends to smother when trying to care for her partner. Or she reacts so strongly to her emotions that she leaves her partner feeling overwhelmed. Again, it’s important to set your own boundaries and speak up when your partner or date crosses them.
  9. She may be a procrastinator. No sign of the zodiac is perfect. The biggest flaw that many (not all!) Pisces women experience is laziness. This sign often has huge dreams and ambitions, but they’d prefer to lie around and fantasize about them than working hard to bring them to fruition. Therefore, Pisces can be a major procrastinator. She may talk about doing something for months before actually getting around to doing it. Patience is definitely a virtue with this sign!
  10. She might not make the first move. If you wait for a Pisces woman to make the first move, you may be waiting for a long time. This sign tends to take the passenger seat in a relationship rather than the driver’s seat. She usually likes to wait until someone asks her out rather than asking that person out. When dating a Pisces, you’ll often have to make all the first moves and initiate all the dates. This doesn’t indicate a lack of interest. It’s just a reflection of her tendency for procrastination.
