Here’s What Kind of Girlfriend You Are, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Whether you’ve been in one relationship or ten, you’ve probably noticed a few similarities between how you treat your SO. Or maybe you haven’t been in any and you want to understand what type of girlfriend you are. Well, wait no more! Her Campus has figured out exactly what kind of girlfriend you are based on your zodiac sign. 

Aries: The Spontaneous Type

If you are an Aries, it is highly likely that you are creative, adaptive and insightful. Because of this, you are probably an adventurous girlfriend. You are always ready to try new things and get creative with date nights. There is nothing that scares you in a relationship because you can easily adapt to every situation. Out of all of your friends, you are probably the one most likely to plan a spontaneous weekend getaway with your SO just to show them how much you care. To you, there is no plan that can’t be changed to be made better.

Taurus: The Forever Type

As a Taurus woman, you are patient, reliable and extremely loving. Because of these traits, you make the perfect long-term girlfriend. When you are in a relationship, you put your whole heart and soul into it and it shows. When you make a promise, you always follow through. If you and your SO get into a fight, you make your point and then let it go. Erica Kent, a Taurus from New York University, says that she has been with her boyfriend for over three years and that it mainly has to do with the fact that “whenever we argue, we know how to let it go. I prove my point and then once it’s done, it’s done. There is no point in staying angry.” There is no use holding grudges and to you, love is more important than winning.

Gemini: The Summer Love Type

Gemini women are known for being flexible, passionate and versatile. Because of this, you are the fall hard and fast kind of girlfriend. When you meet someone new, you automatically understand what you are feeling and you are not shy about it. Your passion comes through in wanting to create a life with your partner, even if you just met them. You have the ability to see the potential in everyone you meet. As well, no week is ever the same with you. Whether it’s changing up your date routine or weekend adventures, everything is constantly changing, which makes you incredibly fun to be around.

Cancer: The Always There Type

Cancer women are, more often than not, emotional, caring and imaginative. You are the kind of girlfriend that is extremely loving and supportive—no matter what. You have the ability to feel so deeply about your partner and you are always finding new ways to show your SO just how much you truly care. If your SO is having a hard day, you automatically cancel whatever plans you had to make time to help them feel better. You are the best friend and girlfriend all in one. 

Leo: The Big Heart, Big Personality Type

Leo women are generous, warmhearted and confident. Leos are always the go big or go home type of girlfriend. You love to be the center of attention, but you also always make sure that your partner feels fulfilled. You are the kind of girlfriend that other couples want to go on double dates with because of your over the top personality. There is never a dull moment with you. Marina Rabinowitz, a Leo from Cornell University, says, “When Valentine’s day comes around, my SO knows that I am going all out. Part of it is to show her how much I love her, but secretly I just want her to tell all her friends how great I am.” Typical Leo move. 

Virgo: The Rock Type

Virgo women are modest, reliable and practical. You are absolutely the stable type of girlfriend because of your love of everything practical. You always think through your words before you say them, making sure you never say anything that could hurt your partner. You almost always have a stable job and are smart in your financial choices, which makes your SO comfortable. As well, you know your worth but you would never make other people feel lesser than you.

Libra: The Role Model Type

Libra women are romantic, idealistic and peaceful. You are the kind of girlfriend that other girlfriends look up to. You are strong-willed and courageous, but you also never talk bad about anyone. Your SO loves how you stick with your ideals and values. You also know how to plan the perfect date night because you are great at understanding what your SO wants. Although you know what you want in life, you make sure to always take your partner’s opinion into mind. 

Scorpio: The One of a Kind Type

Scorpio women are determined, powerful and magnetic. With this, you are the kind of girlfriend that is absolutely unforgettable. Whether it’s the amazing sex, or how intense you are, your SO is magnetically attracted to you. Your personality is strong and you push others to get to know themselves better. You treat your SO like they are the most important person in the world, every single day, while still staying true to who you are. The most famous Scorpio is Blair Waldorf and it makes complete sense as to why Chuck Bass can never get enough of her. She is strong and sexy, yet always loves with her entire heart.

Sagittarius: The Bubbly Type

Sagittarius women are incredibly optimistic, honest and intellectual. You are the bubbly girlfriend who makes life better when you are around. You make everyday an adventure with your SO, but you also know when it’s time to take some time for yourself. If you and your SO are having a disagreement, you always know at the end of the day, the most important thing is how much you both love each other and that no fight can change that.

Capricorn: The Classic Type

Capricorns are idealistic, ambitious and disciplined and that makes very traditional and classic girlfriends. You know your goals in life and through that, you inspire your SO every day. You are mature and your relationship is very serious as well. You are always looking toward the future and love to plan far in advance for trips and vacations. Hannah Jakobs, a Capricorn from the University of Florida, says that every relationship she goes into she thinks about forever right away. “I don’t do it to scare my partner away, but I do it to make sure I could see a future with them. If I don’t, I have to really think about what makes me attracted to this person.”

Aquarius: The Girl Next Door Type

Aquarius women are friendly, loyal and independent. Because of this, you are the girl next door girlfriend. You know how to have fun and always make your SO feel special. People love your outgoing personality, but they know that no matter what, you are always loyal to your partner. You may be a flirt at times, but at the end of the day, you only have one love.

Pisces: The Lover Type

Pisces women are sensitive, selfless and compassionate. You have an old soul and appreciate the classics in every situation. Because of this, you know how to love like a queen and therefore prefer the term “lover” over girlfriend. Whether it’s finding time to lay in bed and read a book with your SO or enjoying the little moments like cooking dinner together, you live life to its fullest. You are incredibly empathetic and are always putting your SO first. You know how to love and you do it right. 

Whether you are a Taurus or a Virgo, there is no single sign that is a “better” girlfriend than the others. Everyone is different and therefore has different experiences that no one else can relate to. Just remember to love yourself and your partner as much as you can, and you will be the best type of girlfriend you can be, regardless of what month you were born.
