Dating A Sagittarius Man: 8 Things You Should Know

Dating a Sagittarius man is often one big adventure. This sign loves surprising the people he dates, organizing spontaneous getaways, and loves passionately. But if you’re going to date a Sagittarius man, it’s better to go in prepared. From temper flare-ups to brazen honesty, here’s what you should know about dating the most passionate and adventurous sign in the zodiac.

  1. He craves adventure. Sagittarius has a reputation throughout the zodiac for being the most adventurous sign. He loves meeting new people, exploring new places, and learning new things. This is important to know if you’re going to date a Sagittarius man because he can get bored quite easily. If he leaves planning dates up to you, it’s best to choose a place or activity that’s interesting rather than just the same old restaurant every time.
  2. He’ll probably have a lot of friends. You might find that the Sagittarius man you’re dating has a lot of friends. These extroverted signs are quite sociable and love getting to know new people. While they can be independent and enjoy their alone time too, they usually prefer to be around other people and form connections with others. So don’t panic if you see that he’s often hanging out with friends or even if he has a lot of girls that are friends. This is a friendly sign! He’s also not likely to drastically alter his lifestyle because he’s seeing someone new.
  3. Don’t be too whiny. By nature, Sagittarius is an optimistic and sunny sign. They like to look on the bright side of everything and see the good in people. So it can be really refreshing hanging out with a Sagittarius since their positive outlook is infectious. But if you’re more of a negative nelly, you might not be too compatible with them. As Sagittarius is such a positive sign, he tends to find whining and complaining and too much negativity to be draining.
  4. He can be childish. Especially when in a bad mood or arguing, a Sagittarius man can become immature. He’s ruled by his emotions, which can lead him to act in childish ways. He might have little tantrums when he doesn’t get his way. Or he might react defensively when you try to talk to him calmly. But the good thing is that these episodes tend to pass quickly. He can be hot-headed but he’s not the type of sign to hold a grudge or dwell on the past.
  5. He might be brazen. If you’re dating a Sagittarius, you’ll soon learn that this sign says exactly what he wants. He’s the portrait of honesty. Because he’s quite thick-skinned, he tends to talk to other people harshly because the same comments wouldn’t offend him. So you might find that he can be pretty brazen at times. If he’s ever too bold, it’s best to remind him that you do have feelings and, while you appreciate honesty, he needs to try and be a little more sensitive.
  6. Don’t tie him down. You should never try to tie anyone down when they want to be free. But this is especially true when it comes to Sagittarius. Being that this sign loves his freedom and values his independence, he won’t react well to pressure to settle down. If you try to move too fast to get him to commit, he’s likely to freak out and run the other way. Instead, take things slowly and give him the chance to come to you. If the relationship is a good fit, he will get there in his own time. Trying to force things too quickly will only ruin that.
  7. He’s a passionate fire sign. The most important thing to know about the Sagittarius man you’re dating is that he’s a passionate fire sign. If you enjoy romance and passion within a relationship, this is a good thing. Get ready for spontaneous dates and surprises! This sign is also quite selfless so he’ll often think of ways to impress and wonder the person he loves. The downside is that he’s also passionate when he’s angry, which can lead to those hot-headed temper flare ups.
  8. He needs alone time. As much as Sagittarius is a social sign, he also needs time to himself. His independence is really important to him. Plus, being a spiritual sign, he tends to crave solitude every now and then to explore his own feelings and beliefs without others there. He’s likely to feel claustrophobic and boxed in if you don’t give him the alone time he needs. Don’t freak out if he wants to spend time by himself. Instead, give him the space he needs and respect his wishes when it comes to being alone.
