Aries: They will laugh way too hard at all of your jokes, cackling hysterically every time you do your Borat voice. Objectively, you and your friends know the reference is too old and your impression is worth a polite chuckle at best, but your Aries admirer will always make you feel like Sacha Baron Cohen in his prime.
Taurus: Your mutual buds will say things like "[Taurus person] kept bringing you up last night!" and "OK, [Taurus person] keeps quoting all of your tweets and, like, does he get what a retweet button is for???" When they're not reminding people of how great you are, timid Tauruses are not-so-subtly asking if you're actually seeing the guy you said you "<3" in your Insta.
Gemini: Gemini will text you all the time, but, much to the confusion of you and your friends you've trusted to help you obsessively decode it all, there's not an ounce of actual flirtation on their end. Worry not: If they text you multiple times a day and actively hold the conversation, they are super into you and their thumb has absolutely hovered over the "winky face" emoji.
Cancer: Cancer crushes will actively avoid hanging out with you because you make them so stuttery that they may as well have a crab clutching their tongue. They are definitely the people who like you from a safe distance until you insist on them grabbing drinks with you instead of just liking all your Facebook posts.
Leo: Leos are drawn to success, and because your ambition is both sexy and scary to them, their way of attracting you is, well, showing off a little. Through strategically planned Snapchats and carefully curated group pics, Leo feels like they need to prove to you that they would be the perfect equal half to your power couple.
Virgo: If you so much as cough, Virgo will already be Googling nearby soup places and offering to grab you two different forms of flu medicine. They are wise enough to know that the best partners are caring and are willing to risk overdoing it with weekly surprise cupcakes rather than not make it known that you matter a lot to them.
Libra: Libra is bold enough to initiate plans with you, but once you actually hang out one-on-one, you'll notice that they're a little...not talking at all? You know them as opinionated and hilarious in large group settings, but in date mode, they are terrified of overstepping their bounds. It'll take a first move from you and a few more hangouts for them to be the rambunctious gem you know they are.
Scorpio: Scorpios are thirsty as hell, always stealing glances and looking away the moment you sharply turn back to them. They might not say much around you out of nerves but it won't take you long to figure out what's up when they literally look like the human incarnation of the eyes emoji.
Sagittarius: Sags are masters of disguise. Seriously, you will never be able to tell if they like you or not, they are that good at hiding all semblance of affection out of fear of creeping you out and ruining a good friendship. Looks like it's up to you to make the first move (unless you are also a Sagittarius, in which case, you'll probs be, like, 85 before anything happens. Sorry!)
Capricorn: Oof, Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold" was 1,00 percent written about a Capricorn. Capricorns are so freaked out by their own feelings that they'll text you to grab coffee, only to flake at the last moment and be mysteriously "busy" for the next month (while still liking all your tweets.) The only way to wrangle this goat is to grab him by the horns and ask, "Bro...wtf?"
Aquarius: Aquarius usually has a great sense of humor. It's just that, in crushing on you, jokes gets warped into ragging on you all the time until you're pretty much convinced they hate you. No tweet is safe from a light dragging, no Facebook post immune to a sassy GIF of Hillary Clinton rolling her eyes. The moment you actually date them though, they'll be about as edgy as a holiday Lifetime movie. You'll just wade through some roasts in the meantime.
Pisces: Compliments can go a long way, or in Pisces's case, they can be so frequent and enthusiastically delivered that even you start to get a little annoyed. Their attempt at winning your affections is perhaps the most straightforward of all, and they're so goddamn nice all the time that you kind of just want to date them and get into your first fight, so they can just stop telling you how great you are all the time. You might as well!
