Characteristics of a Sagittarius man
Depicted as an archer in the zodiac, the Sagittarius man always aims high. He’s idealistic, curious, often impatient - and great fun to be around. Feeling down? Then seek out a Sagittarius man. Not only is he incredibly upbeat, he’s funny too and will wow you with his remarkable knowledge of everything!
Despite thriving in the company of others, he’ll also happily travel through life alone, encountering friends and lovers along the way. He values his freedom but will sacrifice it all for a partner who is daring and dynamic. Could that someone be you?

The Sagittarius man in love
Sagittarius men like to keep it simple. He enjoys affection and intimacy, but at the start of any relationship, he’ll just want a good time, not much more. Once a date starts to get clingy, he’ll be off in a flash. And while he’ll talk you through every minute detail of the theory of relativity, try to get him to discuss his feelings – that subject is banned.
In time though, he’ll prove to be a sincere, compassionate partner, sensitive to your needs and desires. Definitely worth the wait.
How to date a Sagittarius man
Do something outlandish - maybe a bit naughty - and keep him on his toes. Even just order a gin and tonic at the bar instead of your usual white wine – the Sagittarius male prefers someone who’s unpredictable.
Be enthusiastic too and prepared to give anything a go. You may need to venture outside your comfort zone, but the Sagittarius man will be by your side, encouraging you all the way.
How NOT to date a Sagittarius man
He may be happy to hang out with you, but that doesn’t mean he wants to be introduced to everyone you know. Lay off organising family get-togethers for a while. And don’t announce, while visiting a country house, that it’d make the perfect wedding location.
There’s also no need to share your life story straight away. Instead, drop snippets about exciting places you’ve been, and surprising things you’ve done, into your conversations. He’ll stay interested for much longer.

The perfect date
The Sagittarius male loves a puzzle, so get his brain ticking. Pop to the pub for a quiz night, lose him in a maze in the park, or try a spot of geocaching – and go in search of hidden treasure. He’ll even happily follow instructions and build you a set of drawers!
On a night out, meet him inside the venue. He yearns for someone with the confidence to sit alone at a restaurant table or bar, someone who’s clearly independent. Be that individual and you’ll gain his respect.
The Sagittarius male has much in common with other Fire signs, but will also be faithful to an Aquarius, who will help him achieve his ambitious dreams.
However, Earth signs, in particular Taurus and Virgo, will consider him to be too irresponsible. They need to put down roots, whereas the Sagittarius male prefers no fixed abode. Only the most determined couple will make this coupling a success.
