Deep down inside, we all know the number one thing that makes us feel fulfilled, satisfied, and most deeply loved. No one has to tell you, although you sometimes might get scattered and momentarily overlook what matters most. Check the list below and consider your current, long-term, or future dream lover. What is his or her number one love need?
May you enjoy the most perfect match, and skip the frustration of chasing after or being chased by a heartthrob who's out of sync or insensitive to your number one love need.
Aries: You need your lover to be up-front with you, and you don't like to be kept waiting. Impatience or lack of spontaneity can be a killer. Worst of all, though, is feeling that your lover is hiding something from you. Be up-front.
Taurus: Gentleness is the one essential for the Taurus lover. No rough edges, crude speech, tasteless appearance, or rough handling. Refinement rules your heart, and if a lover can't be civilized, it's impossible to overlook or forgive it.
Gemini: Communication is the main thing with the Gemini lover. You need to get a phone call, e-mail, or text every day. Being out of touch is the kiss of death. Communicate with touch, scent, and taste, too. There is no such thing as too many whispered sweet nothings.
Cancer: You want to not only be protected but you also need to feel that you protect your partner. This creates a security where that perfect love can grow. Loyalty, protection, and feeling totally safe in the arms of your lover are the best "coming home" there is.
Leo: You need to feel uninhibited and free in order to be tender, sincere, and, especially, playful. Think of lion cubs rolling together, and remember to frolic! Childlike silliness is a grand thing. Passion rates high, too, but it's perhaps second to playfulness.
Virgo: Genuine kindness has got to be there for you. And your lover needs to show kindness as well as competence. Seeing your loved one being kind to weaker, younger, or disadvantaged people or animals warms the Virgo heart no end.
Libra: Peace and harmony may be scarce in this world, but you desperately need harmony in your private life. You partner needs to try to be accommodating and make as few waves as possible. Being a Libra, you cherish all attempts and forgive all shortcomings.
Scorpio: Without honesty and integrity, you'll feel hollow, empty, and betrayed. Great sex is also appreciated, as well as being able to keep secrets and not tell everybody everything, but these may rank lower. The intimate, honest relationship is it.
Sagittarius: You need to be openly generous. Being free to give and receive on a big scale is crucial to the Sagittarius heart. There's also a public aspect to this, though, and your lover needs to be at ease with you in the limelight. And yes, great sex counts as giving and receiving.
Capricorn: Respect, a good work ethic, and no laziness keep your life going and your heart beating. Love and emotional commitment take work. You must never be taken for granted. Too much praise would be offensive, however.
Aquarius: Excitement and experiment may be big with you, but bigger still is a basic sense of fairness and broad-mindedness. A petty partner has no chance here. Your lover doesn't have to agree with all of your opinions, but it helps.
Pisces: You're the touchy-feely king or queen of the Zodiac, in all the best senses. Constantly hurt feelings won't work. You need someone who's open and sensitive and can express it. You also need someone who loves to comfort you if you cry, because you will.
