Dating is hard, and figuring out how to please your partner and work together as a couple can be a challenge for any pair. But if you’re dating a Gemini man, you’re in for an extra challenging task, because this zodiac sign is notoriously indecisive and two-sided—they have two sides to their personality and it can be hard to know which person you’ll be dealing with on any given day or in any given interaction. As per Astrology Zodiac Signs, Gemini individuals, born between May 21st and June 20th, “can be sociable, communicative and ready for fun, while on the other hand it can be very serious, thoughtful, restless and even indecisive.”
It makes sense given that the Gemini sign is a set of twins, representing the two sides to a Gemini’s personality. And these twins don’t just imply a split personality—though this zodiac sign definitely does have a somewhat split persona. But it’s more than that; oftentimes, what is believed by others to be a dual personality is really a discrepancy between how the Gemini would like to be seen, and how he really is.
Dealing with a gemini
With a Gemini you’re dealing with individuals who are somewhat conflicted about who they are versus who they want to be, and they have opposing personality traits that can change based on their situation and mood. So, you can see how it would be a challenge to date someone who fits this personality description.
But despite their sometimes-fickle personality, Gemini are also outgoing and fun, flirty and social, and they are also smart and creative. Gemini will be the life of the party, they will keep you on your toes and they will always be available to talk and listen. So if you’re looking to date a Gemini, you need to be prepared to engage both sides of their personality. Here are some tips to help you connect with (and hang on to) a Gemini.
Keep Up Intellectually
Gemini love to have smart, intellectual conversations, and they are always very curious and eager to learn more. If you want to keep your Gemini lover happy and interested, you’ll need to be able to keep up with them mentally and keep them engaged. Learn to let loose, while Geminis are often driven in their careers and they love to display their intellect through witty, quick and razor-sharp conversation, they also love to be silly and act wild from time to time.
They have no problem embracing their inner child and acting like a fool in the name of entertaining those around them, and they need a partner who will be able to let loose and keep up with them and their adventurous nature.
You’ll Make Most of the Decisions
Since Gemini can be so fickle and indecisive, they’ll never be the ones to choose the restaurant for dinner or help you pick an activity or destination. Be prepared to make most of the decisions so they won’t have to. But you also need to be prepared to switch your plan and your activities often, because Gemini have a really short attention span and they won’t want to stick around at any party or crowd too often.
They’ll be ready to move on to the next adventure before most people do, so if you want to work as a couple you need to be OK bouncing around socially to keep them engaged and interested.
Geminis Love to Talk, Entertain and be Social
Because they are so social and outgoing, Geminis will always be up to chat, and they can literally talk to anyone, any time, anywhere. Which means you’ll never have that awkward silence so many people experience in new relationships or first dates. But then again, it also means you’ll never have that peaceful silence so many people learn to love and appreciate in long-term relationships.
Be ready to listen ready to listen, be open to a lot of chit-chat, and be OK with the fact that you will NOT be the center of attention, since a Gemini will always enjoy stealing the spotlight. This might be a blessing or a curse, depending on how you look at it.
But They also are Independent and Happy to be on Their Own.
While a Gemini will love company and loves to be social, he or she will also make it very clear from the start that they are independent and they do not need you to be happy. Independence doesn’t usually go hand-in-hand with being a social butterfly, but when it comes to the two sides of a Gemini, you get a bit of both.
A Gemini will make spontaneity a big part of their regular routine, meaning you never really know what to expect. But at the same time, they are very analytical thinkers and they can’t help but over-analyze everything. It’s a major contradiction, which can take its toll on a Gemini and anyone trying to be in a relationship with a Gemini, so if you want your love to last, you’ll need to accept and appreciate both ways of thinking and both types of behavior.
