Your ruling planet of Mercury gives your sign a communicative nature, especially when it comes to your love life! When you flirt, you love to use words, puns and jokes to get into your date's head.
For you, it's just good fun to banter back and forth like that. It's a little like foreplay to Virgo. You can also find that you're better than most signs at aligning your head with your heart.
Mercury gives you an edge there. Sure, you can overthink things, or stress about wondering where things are going. But when your heart and your head combine forces, they're unstoppable!
