Looking for love is a tricky and sometimes tedious business – all those dates with all the wrong people and all that wasted time. It’s frustrating. Luckily you can use a few tricks of the planetary trade to speed up the process toward true love…
Aries: You always recognize potential lovers immediately, but you don’t always take action. No matter where you spot them, just charge right up and demand to know what time you should pick them up. You’ll drive and you’ll choose the restaurant. Any questions? You have the answers.
Taurus: That sensuality you ooze 24/7 isn’t always so obvious. The last relationship nearly did you in and you’re still recovering, and maybe hiding. Stop that. Get off the couch, wiggle into something that’s just so you, and get back in the game. Love is out there, and if anyone can attract it, it’s you. But you have to go out more.
Gemini: See that person in the corner over there? The one who’s tapping and fidgeting and obviously can’t wait to leave? They’ve got your name all over them. Sidle up just close enough to let him or her “eavesdrop” easily, then offer a verbal medley of your greatest, wittiest observations. Toss ’em a glance and if you lock eyes, make your move.
Cancer: Never mix business with pleasure. Never. And don’t pay any attention to that gorgeous (slightly older?) fireball who just strode authoritatively into the room. Wait – disregard those orders. Raise your hand and ask an incredibly insightful question (respectfully). If this one can’t answer right away, there’s always lunch.
Leo: Hear that accent? Take a peek. Like what you see? Excellent. Make your approach. Even if this person can’t see how entertaining you are, they can’t miss your best feature, which should at least get you an invitation to coffee. If not, move on. Why waste time on a tough crowd?
Virgo: They don’t usually stick around for the long haul, but man, what a visit your partners make! Fascinate future mates with your word wizardry and lure them to your place. Later, tap your watch and insist you’ve got to get up early. Talk about baffled! Talk about hooked!
Libra: That person is obviously completely wrong for you, but there’s just something about them. They’re so “decisive,” that’s what it is. You’re mesmerized, and you can’t wait to find out more. Don’t waste a single second agonizing over should or shouldn’t. Get over there and chat as only you can.
Scorpio: You’ve seen that person every day yet never really “noticed,” but they’re on your radar now – big time. The good news is they know you’ve noticed (cute, isn’t it?), they’re interested, and they’re waiting to see what you do. Hurry up and say something sexy. This one won’t wait long.
Sagittarius: If there’s anything you just adore, it’s spontaneity. You can tell just by looking at this one with their kids/dog/pals that they’re definitely not boring. Grab an innocent bystander and tell them your new joke (loudly). If the object of your attention doesn’t notice, drop something (on purpose, this time).
Capricorn: You’re not into blind dates. You especially hate being set up by family, but consider it. What’s the worst that could happen? Even if you’re not enthralled, you’ll have someone to discuss your parent/sibling/co-worker with, and information is power. It’s a win-win situation – your favorite.
Aquarius: Much as you love computers, you’ve been burned at least once by computer-related dating, which doesn’t mean you won’t try again. This time, have a quick exit strategy, but don’t be surprised if you don’t have to use it. Once you start comparing hard drives, you’ll want to stay for dessert.
Pisces: See that lovely person with the deep pockets surrounded by friends but no obvious significant other? They’re feeling impulsive, but right now all they can take it out on is their wallet. Honor them with one of your long, lingering stares. Worst-case scenario is free drinks. Best is a generous lover. What’s the holdup?
