Dating A Sagittarius Woman: 8 Things You Should Know

Sagittarius women have a reputation throughout the zodiac for their sense of independence and lust for freedom. They crave open spaces and truthful conversations, plus a healthy dose of adventure. So what is dating a Sagittarius woman really like? Keep reading for eight things you should know before you get in too deep.

  1. Keep it varied. The most important thing to know about dating a Sagittarius woman is that this sign doesn’t do ruts. She craves adventure and becomes restless quite easily compared to other signs. So when you’re dating one, it’s super important to keep everything varied. Spice it up on date night. If you do settle into a routine, keep things interesting with a few surprises here and there. Otherwise, this fire sign is likely to get bored.
  2. Expect to have arguments. As Sagittarius is a fire sign, you should expect a few hot-headed arguments. Along with having a slight temper, this sign is also one of the most honest in the zodiac. They don’t sweep things under the rug or sugar-coat them. Rather, they’re bold and assertive. If she has problem with you, be ready for her to tell you exactly what it is. At least you’ll know where you stand!
  3. She’ll find out the truth. Along with telling the truth, Sagittarius also likes to find out the truth. And usually, she’s pretty good at it! With her natural tendency for investigating things, this sign really could get a job with the FBI. So there’s no point in lying to a Sagittarius since nine times out of ten, she’ll figure out what’s really going on. She also values honesty, so you’re always better being up front with her, no matter how uncomfortable the conversation might be.
  4. Don’t try to smother her. Sagittarius is one of the most independent signs in the zodiac. She loves to be free. Now, that doesn’t mean that she prefers being single to being in a relationship. But when she is in a relationship, she hates feeling cooped in and smothered. Always remember to give her space to be herself and do her own thing within the confines of your relationship. This sign loves me-time and doesn’t cope well with the kind of partner who likes to join at the hip with their SO. If you try to be too affectionate or too overbearing, especially early on in the relationship, she’s likely to feel overwhelmed.
  5. She follows through with her promises. One of the best things about dating a Sagittarius woman is that she follows through with her promises. You can trust that she’s going to do what she said she was going to do. Her word means a lot and she’s an incredibly trustworthy sign. What this does mean is that she naturally expects the same kind of loyalty and reliability back. If she doesn’t get it, she may be disappointed.
  6. She’s selfless. As well as being one of the most passionate zodiac signs, Sagittarius is also selfless. She always thinks of others before herself and is overly kind and accommodating. When you’re dating her, you’ll find that she often asks about you and your life rather than just wanting to talk about herself, which can be refreshing. Again, though, she can be hurt if you’re not the same. A Sagittarius is best paired with someone who’s also selfless, so you’re both looking out for each other.
  7. Labels might not be her thing. As mentioned, Sagittarius loves her freedom. She’s not automatically opposed to being in a relationship, but it might take her a while to grow accustomed to the idea. In the beginning, she may have a problem with labels. In other words, calling herself your girlfriend might freak her out. Even though she might have feelings for you, she might prefer to keep things casual, without labels or exclusivity, at least until she’s sure that she’s ready for that kind of commitment.
  8. She might say things she doesn’t mean. Every now and then, a Sagittarius woman will say things that she doesn’t really mean. These usually stem from anger or passion, as she tends to become carried away. She’s not the best sign at thinking things through and filtering her thoughts, so sometimes she can be really hurtful. But know that her heart is usually in the right place—sometimes the emotions just take over.
