If you think you’ve found “the one”, you’ll be keen to know if your love can last the distance. Not all zodiac signs define lasting love the same way, though, but there are things you can do to help your relationship thrive in the long term no matter who your partner is.
If your lover is an Aries, understand that they need to “win” in order to stay in love. Your love will last longer if you teach Aries to share the duties and responsibilities of the relationship, so they are always in charge of something, but not everything.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By staying interesting. Always give Aries something new to think about.
If your partner is a Taurus, they need security and comfort in their love lives. You’ll have to make a commitment – and mean it – in order to gain the long term trust of a Taurus. Lots of physical affection is needed too. Make Taurus feel loved.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By not rocking the boat. Create a stable and reliable relationship.
If your partner is a Gemini, understand that they need variety and fun in order to stay in love. Gemini can be a fickle sign, and if he or she bores, they’ll quickly move on. Bring spontaneity and joy into your relationship whenever possible.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: With laughter, and lots of it. Nothing quite gets to a Gemini’s heart more.
If your partner is a Cancer, a loving family home is their top priority. He or she will fight for the family at all costs, but if you endanger the family’s security, you won’t ever get a second chance. Be a good parent, and a strong and responsible partner.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By putting your family first, even if it means sacrificing your career progress.
If your partner is a Leo, you’ll need to keep the relationship moving on to bigger and better things in order to retain his or her interest. Leo needs flattery and an adoring partner, but they also need a certain standard of living for long term love.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By working hard. No matter what your circumstances, it’s the effort which your Leo will appreciate.
If your partner is a Virgo, you’ll need to be prepared to change and adapt as your relationship matures. Accept some of Virgo’s well meant criticism, but stand your ground too, and teach Virgo to accept the beauty of the here and now.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: With humor. It helps to cope with your partner’s nagging, and will cement the bond between you too.
If your partner is a Libra, you may be expected to be live the fairy tale romance for real. If reality doesn’t quite match up, your Libra can quickly become disillusioned and will look for the next prince or princess. Inject some realism, but gently.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By staying positive. Don’t allow worries and niggles to drag the fairy tale through the mud.
If your partner is a Scorpio, it’s all intensity, all the time. The relationship can be emotionally exhausting for both of you, but that’s how Scorpio likes it. To stay the distance, you’ll need a safe refuge outside of the relationship.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By maintaining your own hobbies and friendships, to give you both valuable breathing space when needed.
If your partner is a Sagittarius, you’ll already know that they don’t “do” commitment very well at all. This can be hugely frustrating if you want to settle down, but the fire, the passion and the exhilaration of the relationship is worth it.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By removing the pressure. Don’t make demands; allow your Sag to just be. They won’t go far, if not pushed.
If your partner is a Capricorn, they’re in this relationship for the long haul by default. It’s not so much a matter of how to stay together, as how to stay together joyfully – it’s very easy for duties and responsibilities to kill the romance.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By insisting on fun. Create date nights and ensure you spend some couple time now and then without the kids.
If your partner is an Aquarius, their quirky aloofness can be hurtful at times. It’s tough for Aquarius to settle down fully, but they’re more likely to hang around if you enjoy a meeting of minds as well as bodies.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By sharing some of his or her interests. Learn, if you have to. Give yourselves things to talk about.
If your partner is a Pisces, they are highly sensitive and easily hurt, but also somewhat over-dependent on the relationship. For lasting love with a Pisces, it’s essential to avoid causing too much emotional pain, even inadvertently.
Increase Your Long Term Chances: By reigning in your temper; find a softer, gentler way to communicate so that sensitive Pisces has a chance to be heard too.
