Mysterious, feisty, and oh-so-sexy, Scorpios come with plenty of allure. Before you jump into a relationship with one, though, you'll want to turn to astrology for all the insight you can get. This zodiac sign can be intense and brooding, not to mention a little bit dark.
1. Make the First Date Sophisticated, But Fun
So, brave soul, you want to date a Scorpio. They'll treat your first date like an audition, so show off your sophistication, but keep the mood light. Your Scorpio's coming to the table with enough emotion to go around. Reading your daily horoscope can give some more insight into how you should act on the day of your date.
2. Expect Intensity
This sign on the Zodiac is notoriously intense. And when we say intense, we mean that in every way. You'll want to prepare yourself for powerful emotions. Scorpios can flirt with just one look across the room, and they deliver passion when it comes to love and sex. However, when you're out in public, you won't want to openly show your affection. Scorpios try to hide their emotions from the wider world. Confusing? Sure. Worth it when you're the center of their attention? You bet.
3. Don't Make Them Jealous
All that intensity makes Scorpios susceptible to incredible jealously. In other words, don't play games like flirting with the bartender in front of your Scorpio crush. Just about the worst thing you can do to a Scorpio is make them jealous. Not only are Scorpios super protective, but they also can show quite the temper when triggered. (Think: the Hulk.)
4. Demonstrate Your Loyalty
On the flip side, you'll win that loyal and devoted Scorpio over if you show them the same attention and dedication they give to you. Scorpios need to know what to expect when it comes to loyalty. As attentive, intense lovers, they tend to dedicate themselves quickly to the person they choose, and they expect that chosen one to do the same.
5. Do. Not. Lie.
Like ... ever. Yeah, lying is bad in general. But forgiving and forgetting is not in the Scorpio nature, so if you get caught in a lie when you're dating a Scorpio, you're going to feel that in(famous) Scorpio wrath.
6. Keep Sign Compatibility in Mind
Ready to dive in? Make sure your sign has Scorpio compatibility before you commit.
If you're a Cancer, Capricorn, or Pisces, you'll make a pretty good match. Soft-spoken Cancers are willing to please and like to feel protected. Capricorns are diligent and patient — not to mention super, ahem, compatible in the bedroom with Scorpio partners. As for Pisces, these folks work well with Scorpios thanks to the former's dreamy and dependent nature.
On the other hand, if you're a Libra who doesn't like boundaries (or jealousy!), a strong-willed Leo who doesn't do well with possessiveness, or a flirty, flighty Gemini, you might want to rethink those dating plans.
