Wouldn’t it be great if your daily horoscope revealed where and when you would meet the love of your life? We think so, at least. So we’ve decided to study the signs to help determine exactly that.
You are charitable and loyal. You love using your creativity and genius to help others. You and your SO will probably meet while volunteering at your local animal shelter or working together on a revolutionary project to end world hunger.
Best of all, you’ll immediately know—and love—that the other person is generous and thoughtful, which is an obvious plus and there’s less pressure to come up with an original opening line—you can simply talk about the task at hand. Perfect!
Your sensitive, compassionate and selfless nature makes you an awesome friend. You genuinely care about others’ wellbeing and their feelings, so it’s not hard to imagine one of your longtime friendships blossoming into something more.
Alaina Leary, a second year grad student at Emerson College, says, “I'm a Pisces, and I met my SO in high school. We're actually high school sweethearts, as unbelievable as it is. We met on the first day of high school in our first class, which we had together. We started talking and then ate lunch together, and we have been a part of each other's lives ever since.”
Love can take you by surprise but if you’re as lucky as Alaina and her SO, it’ll be just what you needed, even if you didn’t know you needed it.
You’re adventurous, enthusiastic and wildly confident—always willing to try new things and meet new people. Your spontaneity and uplifting energy are hard to resist, and people are naturally drawn to you in social situations.
Sarah Cahn, who completed her degree in fashion merchandising at Kent State University this year, says she met her SO while studying abroad in Florence, Italy. “I was really looking forward to meeting people, traveling almost every weekend, eating amazing food, and the fashion field trips built into my classes. I was so excited to immerse myself in the culture and enjoy every opportunity studying abroad had to offer. Dating didn't even cross my mind; I didn't have time for it. Dylan and I were in the same orientation group in Italy. We had met a few times before at Greek events back at school but barely knew each other. Dylan studied abroad with the Architecture program and I thought it would be cool to meet people in other majors. He and I started to hang out more and more and eventually started dating while we were abroad. We explored the city of Florence together and even traveled to Croatia for the weekend!”
Sarah and Dylan have been dating for more than a year now. Couples that travel together, stay together.
You’re patient, dependable and warmhearted—friends appreciate that you listen to them and that you always offer support and encouragement. Your potential SO is most likely to strike up a conversation with you in line at an on-campus event or in one of your classes together. They will feel compelled to approach you.
Jenna Adrian, a sophomore at Drexel University, says, “I'm a Taurus and I met my SO in college when we started chatting at a party.”
Meeting someone at a party might seem like a cliché but it’s actually pretty ideal—your friends are there for backup if needed and, if all goes well, you have someone to enjoy the party with, avoiding any potential wallflower moments!
You are witty and intellectual. You’re a natural conversationalist and you’re pretty good at making people laugh. You are most likely to meet your SO at the workplace or somewhere else that you visit frequently—they won’t be able to resist your charm.
Sarah Silberstein, a senior at the University of Texas at Austin and a Gemini, says, “I met my SO at a coffee shop and breakfast cafe I was working at, at the time."
You are the Lorelai Gilmore to his Luke Danes.
You are incredibly loving but also very emotional. You tend to be more cautious because you’re more afraid than most of rejection. Your ideal situation would be to meet your SO through mutual friends. That way, you know what to expect and there are fewer risks involved.
When it comes to dating, you can never truly know what to expect. Sometimes, all it takes is a little confidence and a dose of spontaneity to get you over your biggest fears.
You are generous and open-minded, but sometimes you prefer to be in control. You will most likely meet your SO on an online dating app, like Tinder or Bumble, which allows you to indulge your experimental tastes on your own terms.
According to Sean Rad, CEO of Tinder, approximately 80 percent of Tinder users browse the app to find love, which makes sense since more than 50 percent of Americans agree that online dating is a good way to meet potential mates.
Intelligent, disciplined, practical and analytical, you are a natural at school and you’re more than okay spending your time studying or reading on campus or at a local bookstore. Every few hours though, it’s good to come up for air—you never know when your future SO is going to be right in front of you. And who doesn’t love a library or bookstore meet-cute?
Shelly Adams, a junior at Shenandoah University, says, “I’m a Virgo, I met my boyfriend at school, which sort of fits my sign. I think Virgo is meticulous and detail-oriented, known for being good at school.”
The best part about meeting your SO at the library is knowing they appreciate quiet time just as much as you do.
You are diplomatic and easygoing. You believe that people are innately good and that probably has something to do with the fact that you’re a romantic at heart. Your SO is waiting for you where you least expect them—at your next wine tasting or Sunday trip to the farmer’s market, maybe.
Nathalie*, a freshman at the University of Waterloo, says her SO won her over with a surprise dinner party. “We live really far apart so when he showed up for my birthday, I was blown away.”
Be prepared to be swept off your feet at any moment.
You are powerful and passionate. Your relationships—romantic or platonic—are always meaningful because of your magnetic personality. You are strong and confident and you don’t mind being the dominant one in a relationship. You will probably meet your SO in a group fitness class or at a karaoke bar, where you can express your bold personality.
Sara*, a senior at Florida Atlantic University, says, “I met my SO at a free yoga class in my town. We were both there for the first time and we laughed through the entire class about how awkward we felt. It really broke the ice, and made the class really exciting!”
The right person won’t be intimidated by your outgoing personality; in fact, they’ll actually find it endearing.
You are all about positivity and radiance. Your cheerful nature is contagious, and everyone knows that they’re destined to have fun with you around. You and your SO will probably cross paths at a music festival or on an exotic trip.
Bridget Higgins, a senior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, says, “I'm a Sagittarius and I met my SO in the Dominican Republic vacationing with our friends separately. We both ended up being from Massachusetts!”
Nothing like traveling to a faraway place to bring you closer to home.
You are patient and reserved. You prefer to avoid risks and uncertainties, and you especially hate getting your hopes up. You’re content waiting around for the right thing, and you’re confident that you’ll know it when you see it. Chances are you’ll meet your SO at happy hour or you’ll reconnect with an old friend at an alumni or networking event.
The best things in life take time.
There are hundreds of places you can meet a potential SO—it can honestly be so overwhelming! Narrowing it down according to zodiac signs might be a little eccentric, but hey, it’s worth a shot.
