If your bae was born between February 19 to March 20, he's a Pisces, and there's a whole lot to love about the sexy water sign. Here are 10 things that make dating a Pisces particularly wonderful, no matter what sign you are.
1. They're ridiculously imaginative.
Ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusion, Pisces is a pro at daydreaming about anything really, from a ridiculously romantic vacation (probably aboard a yacht or on a desert island, because being by the ocean is key) to what they'd do if they won the lottery (quit their day job to write a book that's gonna become the next big Netflix series).
2. This also applies in bed.
Your Pisces probably has a whole bunch of fantasies, and as long as they're feeling secure emotionally, they'd be down to turn them into a reality. And oh yeah, you can rest assured they'll be totally up for trying yours too.
3. They're extremely empathetic.
Almost to a fault. All water signs tend to be in tune with their emotions, but Pisceans tend to not only feel all their own feelings but also take on everything around them. This is useful when, for instance, you've had a rough week and hate everyone. Chances are your Pisces will empathize and happily join you on the couch to binge Scandal and fast food.
4. They're natural-born flirts and romantics.
Would you prefer to engage in witty, charming banter or receive long, poetic love letters that probably beat Noah's to Allie in The Notebook? What about both? Done and done.
5. You're kinda astounded by their creative genius.
They're the 12th and last sign in the whole zodiac, and many astrologers believe that means they've acquired characteristics from all of the 11 preceding signs. That may be one of the reasons they have soooo many feelings. And they do well to express themselves creatively. Basically, they're born to be freakin' brilliant artists. (Kurt Cobain, Yoko Ono, Michaelangelo—all Pisces!) And this is a win for you, because the romantic surprises they plan put even The Bachelor's to shame.
6. They're super sensitive and ~intuitive~.
While they're not mind readers (though they can be psychic—yes, really), your Pisces will probably just know what's driving you nuts without you having to say much at all. Yay for less explaining, more spooning.
7. They've got rhythm.
Chances are your Pisces partner is no slouch on the dance floor. And he's got lots of shoes. It's the truth.
8. They're incredibly compassionate.
Whether you want to volunteer at the soup kitchen, save the whales, or just whine for a few minutes after you hurt yourself doing something klutzy, Pisceans feel other people's pain and genuinely want to help.
9. They're pros at escapism.
Yeah, unfortunately this could mean drinking (or doing other substances) to excess, but it can also mean being really into movies, music, poetry, theater, etc. Even, say, role play, if that's your thing.
10. They're innately spiritual.
Pisces is also ruled by the 12th house in astrology, which involves soul-searching, karma, and dreams, so they're all about answering the deepest questions about themselves but also about everything that's bigger than themselves. Like, "What are we here for?" and "What is the meaning of life?" Super-serious, yes, but also potentially very sexy.
