The Best Dating App for Your Zodiac Sign
There used to be just two options: Tinder, or suffer the public humiliation to follow if your crush denied you in person. But with hundreds, maybe thousands, of dating apps to choose from these days, it can be impossible to decide which one is best for you. And what's more… which one has your true love on it??
It's quite simple: Match with the right app, match with the right partner. Some seek a life partner, others only want a crazy romp, others crave an adventure partner. Your sign is the key to helping you find someone who meets your innate, emotional needs.
Check the list for your next app, and all you'll have to worry about is what pick up line to use. (Be sure to check out your moon sign as well! If you're not sure what it is, here's a free birth chart calculator for you!)
Aries: The League

Aries is ruled by Mars (planet of passion), which makes them competitive. They want the best of the best. So what could be a better dating app than The League? Known as a go-to for people with high standards, The League vets its users based on their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles. Aries has a long list of accomplishments, so no worries, they will fit right in.

Taurus is known for being stubborn and high maintenance. They need a squad to keep them in line, which is why Ship is an ideal app for them. Ship allows people to swipe for each other. Anyone in Taurus’ circle, from friends in relationships to mom can also join in the fun and play matchmaker. Taurus is fickle and can get in their own way, so having their inner circle guide them is key.
Gemini: Plenty of Fish
Not surprisingly, Gemini can be a bit indecisive. Do they like this or that? They might not be entirely sure. However, they are drawn to exploring all options. An app that gives them as many choices as possible, like Plenty of Fish is perfect for them. POF boasts having as many as 70,000 new singles a day, allowing Gemini to look through as many profiles as time will permit.
This sign is known for being emotional and intuitive. It’s not uncommon for them to wonder if that person they made eye contact with on the way to yoga or who stood in front of them at Starbucks was the one. Happn is the must-have app for this sign bec
ause they can finally connect with people who have crossed their path. Whether it was meant to be or not—Cancer doesn't need to wonder “what if.”

Ever the confident lion, Leo women aren’t afraid to make the first move, which is why they will be very into Bumble. Anything but shy, they also have a tendency to be picky. So instead of ignoring that seemingly endless stream of DMs, they can par down and take charge.

Virgo is known for their honesty and practicality. They don’t want to waste a moment of time looking for love—they’d rather spend it in love. They require a significant amount of information on a prospective date before engaging in even so much as a conversation. OkCupid lets this sign narrow down their choices and search based on their particular criteria. Quite simply, it’s a no-brainer!
Libra is all about harmony and balance. They are deeply loving of others, yet have a strong relationship with themselves. They will be able to find what they’re looking for on Hinge. Hailed as “The app designed to be deleted,” users are presented with six pictures, some basic info and answers to some fun yet revealing questions. Libra will quickly see if a match can potentially complement their personality or not!

When Scorpio enters a room, everyone notices. This sign is intense, to say the very least. So while they might not bond with their future mate over a mutual love of Harry Potter, they’ll find they might connect over an extreme distaste for scooters or communal tables at restaurants. Scorpio will love Hater, which is an app that matches people based on what they both dislike. While the concept might sound odd, knowing what you don’t like can be just as important as knowing what you do.
The one, the only: Tinder. Sagittarius has an adventurous spirit especially when it comes to relationships. They’re the kind of people who put down the menu at a restaurant and tell the waiter to let the chef choose. Ask a Sagittarius if they’re into something others might view as unusual in bed. Don’t be surprised if they say “yes.”
So, this sign will be all in for Tinder. Sagittarius can excited about a match, but they’re also fiercely independent, so if sparks don’t fly, it’s no big deal. They’re onto the next one.

Capricorn can be a picky sign. They know what they want and even more so, they know what they need to do to get it. The goat is also fiercely loyal and likely looking for a long-term partner. Match is ideal because unlike the current generation of swiping-based apps, there’s a whole lot more information on Match. It’s an older, trusted standard. Knowing the bigger picture brings awareness— is this person a real option or just a waste of time?
Aquarians tend to be more open-minded than other signs. They don’t believe in labels and can shun conventionality. So an app such as Her is a great choice for exploring various aspects of their sexuality they may or may not be currently tapped into. Designed to connect womxn and queer people, Her will open the Aquarius mind into an entirely new experience.
Pisces: Coffee Meets Bagel

This fish knows how to navigate any water! They also have an uncanny sense of intuition. They don’t need to see match after match to know if someone is right. So, what app could be better than Coffee Meets Bagel? When too much is too much, CMB sends just six curated matches per day. Women are only sent matches who have previously liked them. So, Pisces will be able to figure out whom they might fancy as fast as they can swim.
