When it comes to this sign, another Sagittarius is the best choice in partner! You’re both unapologetically upfront and can dish out the tea as well as you can take it from others, so arguments are quick and then forgotten about. Another great match for Sagittarius is Aquarius. Both of you have unique perspectives on the world that are completely your own, which you both love to have friendly debates over.
Love is always an adventure when it comes to Sagittarius men. This feisty fire sign is classified as mutable, meaning he’s creative, expressive, adventurous, resourceful, and always on the go. His sign is ruled by Jupiter, planet of abundance and expansion, and he wants to be completely unrestricted so he can honor his ruling planet’s themes of growth and broaden his horizons. He does this by traveling and engaging with a ton of different people. This upbeat guy is a present-day Indiana Jones—educated, a bit of a troublemaker, and totally irresistible, if you're down for the ride.
He wants nothing more than for you to be the best version of yourself.
The Sagittarius man is optimistic above all else. He sees every moment as an opportunity to learn something new, or to help someone, or to improve at a skill. Every goal he makes is lofty and ambitious, and every obstacle he faces is just a chance to improve. His constantly-hopeful mindset is something to be admired, and he views you through that same idealistic lens, too. He sees the best in people very easily, and he only seriously connects with those he thinks have potential. In a lot of ways, he’s like a coach. He’ll push your buttons sometimes, but at the end of the day, he wants nothing more than for you to be the best version of yourself.
Just like the Sagittarius constellation—the Centaur—he’s always on the move! He’ll motivate you to work out with him and prefers long walks together over sitting at a bar. He hates to be bored, and in the rare times when you two have no plans, he immediately has an idea for an outing or adventure. It’s hardly ever something as simple as catching a movie or getting dinner at a nice restaurant—he wants to go on a hike, or a couples art class–anything that's mentally stimulating and provides an opportunity to try something new.
With a Sagittarius guy, what you see is what you get. He’s no good at keeping secrets—as soon as something pops into his mind, it immediately comes out of his mouth. Is he tactless? Sure, at times. But you know that with this guy, you’ll only get the real truth tea. It’s an interesting way he honors his ruling planet. Jupiter is all about unrestricted growth and expansion, and his straightforwardness is a result of him wanting the relationship to evolve. Other signs might be more passive aggressive, but you can rest assured that if you’re with a Sagittarius, he will mince no words!
He wants nothing more than freedom, and needs space to explore and experience everything life has to offer.
However, his words can hurt, especially if he makes you feel clingy just for having basic relationship needs. After all, his sign gets a reputation for being unable to commit—he takes a great amount of convincing before he even starts to entertain the idea of settling down. He might view you as his ball and chain if he thinks you're restricting him in any way. He wants nothing more than the freedom to explore and experience everything life has to offer (in return, he grants you that same autonomy). But he also needs to be continually fascinated by you. If you can’t keep him intrigued and keep up with his fast-paced movement through life, good luck!
Being ruled by Jupiter, planet of expansion, this sign is exaggerative by nature in everything he does. One tiny misstep on your end turns into an argument, and his natural loudness really shines when he’s in a disagreement with someone! He identifies very strongly with his beliefs and opinions, to the point of where a simple argument feels like a personal attack on him. Best strategy to deal with this craziness? Shrug it off. Don’t bother over little tiffs, just roll your eyes and move on. He won’t remember them in five minutes, and neither should you. His sign gets heated the quickest, but he’s also the sign that’s fastest to forgive and forget.
Again, the simplest way to make it all work with him is to give him some breathing room. He’s a fire sign, so he’s terrified of his natural spark being smothered. If you're looking for a nightly Netflix and chill buddy, you might not be a perfect match for a Sagittarius boy. There’s a need for freedom in everything he does, including his schedule, so don’t expect important dates or plans to be set in stone.Appreciate the impromptu lifestyle he lives, where you can enjoy every date as a surprise, and every moment spent together will feel like an adventure.
