If you’re planning a date with a Gemini, whether a first date or in an existing relationship, make sure you understand what to expect. Sure, not all Geminis are the same, but there are a good amount of common traits to know about. Dating can be a big deal so let’s help you out, no matter how much you know about astrology.
Don’t feel the need to stick to every single subject we talk about. It’s definitely not our intention to change you. It’s always important to be yourself. However, if you’re really into this man or woman, consider these helpful tips. A decent preparation is half the work, right? Alright, let’s get started.
Be Prepared To Talk A Lot
In case you didn’t know already, a Gemini is a very social person. They love to talk. Yes, they can even talk for hours. Not only about themselves, but especially about you. So, if you’re about to date this zodiac sign, expect a good amount of chatting. If you’re not really talkative this could be a problem. A Gemini is seriously interested in you, it’s part of their social nature, so be prepared for that.
We’ll cover creativity a little later on, but a Gemini is very spontaneous. They enjoy a variety of conversations, no matter the topic. If you tell them what you like, or what keeps you busy, they’ll make sure to listen. They’re perfectly capable to hear you out. Expect a good amount of spontaneous reactions, ideas, or even jokes. It’s as if their creative mind never sleeps. This allows them to react to almost anything in a matter of seconds.
Like we said, a Gemini is genuinely interested in you and what you have to say. They don’t just listen to you in order to seem interested…they really are interested! Chances are you’ll ask yourself “Why are they asking so many questions”. But once again, they’re curious about you. Hey, you agreed to have this (first) date, so yeah questions will be asked in case you bring a Gemini. One fun thing in particular is their open mind. If you like something, they may start to share that same interest. That’s why they want to know all about it in the first place.
Find A Unique Place
If you can, try to find a unique place to show your Gemini date. This could be a restaurant that just opened up, a bar that serves a special cocktail, a coffee corner that serves exclusive cookies…whatever you can think of. This should keep a Gemini entertained for a bit. You should try to avoid boredom as much as possible. Of course, you can make it up with fancy talks, but the place itself should offer something interesting as well. If it’s totally new, this sign will be amused!
You want your date to go home thinking “That was an interesting place”. If you manage to do that, you’ll be just fine. You could contact his or her friends to inquire if your date has ever been to a particular place. Maybe there’s some kind of entertainment while you dine, like a live band where you could dance the salsa afterwards. We’re just giving you an idea. If you manage to make the experience a “once in a lifetime” thing, prepare for some serious compliments.
Not only is it wise to choose an original location, but try to be creative as well. A Gemini has a very creative mind, so if you manage to make their creativity come to life you’ll score some points. We once visited this Cuban restaurant where visitors were allowed to write their thoughts all over the walls. Yes, this will make a Gemini come to life. Their serious interest in other people should not be forgotten.
They Can Be “All Over The Place”
Another important thing to remember is this: A Gemini can talk about anything for hours and hours. If it’s not you who does the talking, they’ll flood you with ideas and thoughts. This could be very overwhelming if you’re not prepared. Sure, if you’re a good listener and you don’t mind them speaking so much, you’ll be good. However, there’s nothing wrong with pulling the handbrake here or there. Whenever they talk about too many subjects at the same time, just focus on one or two things and go from there.
Ok, another important thing. Not only does a Gemini like to talk about a dozen different topics at the same time, their multi-tasking goes even further. They could just as well grab their phone and reply to a friend while you’re telling one of your most favorite stories. It’s not that they’re not interested in you, but we understand it seems that way. They can take a selfie and send it to their friends at any moment, no matter the situation. However, and this is very important, they still love to hear what you’re saying. So don’t immediately think they’re not interested in you.
If you date a Gemini, don’t be surprised if they switch personality. On one side they can be extremely empathetic and rational, but then there’s their emotional twin. Maybe mood swings is not the best way to describe this trait, but it sure could look like that. Just remember, a Gemini could have a conflict with themselves, and therefore not with you. If their mind says yes but their emotions say no, try to not judge too fast. There’s more to this double personality. For example, they could decide to paint the living room one day whilst the next they just want to stay in bed for ever.
Giving And Receiving Attention
Not only does a Gemini enjoy attention, this sign is perfectly capable to give it to you as well. They can listen to everything you have to say, which could seem a little uncommon at first. Just make sure you show your interest in them as well. Nothing wrong with asking a few questions. They’ll love to tell you everything you need to know. Think of this as an exploration for common ground. Let’s say this date would result in a relationship…would there be a thing you have in common? Probably something you’re curious about as well.
Yup…expect some jokes. Who knows even a lot. A Gemini enjoys to sometimes joke, especially when their creative side gets to speak out loud. In a way, it’s a very good sign whenever they’re being funny. Not always, but often it’s a sign of comfort. Joking around with words is not uncommon either, or who knows they’ll come up with some sarcastic ones as well. Now, not everyone enjoys these jokes, especially if it ruins the conversation. But well, we thought you should know. Maybe you’re the joking kind of person too. This sign made it into our funniest zodiac signs Top 3.
Whether you’re a man or woman, a Gemini enjoys to flirt and belongs to one of the most flirty zodiac signs. Like we already mentioned, they enjoy to talk and get your attention. That’s why we advised you to ask some questions. Well, another way to grab this attention is by flirting. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why they are usually active on social media as well. For a date however it’s important to remember that your Gemini friend is very faithful. They’ll be looking forward to take you home, but that’s something to figure out for the future.
They Are Intelligent
Let’s say you talked about your newest hobby with you Gemini date. You explained everything you like about it and why you’re so motivated. Well, you’ll be surprised by how much this sign will remember from your story. It’s not uncommon for them to go home and research as much as possible about your hobby. Not only because they are interested in you, but also because they might like it as well. Researching possible common interests are a part of their curiosity we talked about before. But it’s also good to know if the both of you would enjoy the same hobby in the future.
Eager To Learn
We talked about curiosity and creativity before, but it’s important to remember that a Gemini is often very eager to learn. Their intelligence could surprise you by how much they learned in a short period of time. If you share the same interest, you could learn a lot from them. Even if you already did a lot of research yourself. This also keeps the conversation going which is very important for a Gemini (like we explained before).
A Gemini will be there for you in a serious relationship. They will sit down and let you explain everything that’s on your mind. Furthermore, they can also give excellent advise. If you’re nervous about that job interview, make sure to talk to a Gemini. They view the two of you as a team and will do all within their power to help you out. Even though they can be all over the place and talk about any topic, their intelligence is perfectly capable to assist and support you.
They Are Creative
We touched on this topic before, but just slightly. Since a Gemini can be “all over the place”, their interest and mindset can fluctuate. You could find them in bed watching a new series they just discovered. On the other hand however, they can be extremely active and inspired at the same time. Yes, they could decide to give your living room a new look because your anniversary is coming up. It’s a perfect chance for them to use their creative mind and to express their own feelings as well.
A Gemini loves to make life exciting, that’s just how they roll. Creativity often results in impulsive ideas they wish to turn into reality. Their “being all over the place” personality comes to play. Sure, this could surprise or even shock you a little. But you better get used to it if you just found the love of your life. Sometimes a Gemini can even go into the extremes, trying to achieve more than they can deliver. Maybe it’s for this reason that some consider a Gemini to be one of the craziest zodiac signs. Feel free to let them be creative or even funny, but pull the handbrake whenever things start to really get out of hand.
Discovering New Things
In order to keep life adventurous, there’s a good chance that your Gemini date will come up with a dozen new ideas within a short period of time. Live is everything but boring with this sign. They could spontaneously ask you to visit that new museum that just opened up, or maybe even try those exclusive cocktails at that new local bar. Yes, we admit, we told you that a Gemini can stay in bed all day and watch Netflix. But they sure know how to turn around and get the action going again.
Express Your Ambitions
Don’t Be Ashamed
If you’re the ambitious kind of person, tell your date! Don’t be ashamed, especially if you’re worried about talking too much. Having a conversation is of very big importance for this sign. They want to know everything about you, and who knows you have the same ambitions without knowing about it. If there’s a possible future for the two of you, why not explore those common grounds right now? Yes, you can tell them what keeps you busy and which goals you set for yourself long term.
If you’re the quiet type of person, there’s a chance that your Gemini date will get bored. Yes, they get bored quite easily. Come on, there’s something interesting to tell them, right? We already talked about boredom before, where we tried to make sure you arrange that unique place with loads of new impressions. Well, the same goes for chatting. Tell them what you think, or even where you hope your career could be heading. Want to move abroad? Just say so. Or just talk about it without rushing into things. Who knows your date will research everything about the location and gets even more motivated than you already are.
You could be surprised by how much support a Gemini will express. Not only are they good at talking and analyzing, but they also love a new adventure. They can help you out whenever necessary. If you have ambitions, chances are there’ll be a few good adventures waiting for the both of you. So yes, a Gemini will often support you because it could become exciting. Of course, they need to do a little thinking at first, but you’ll be surprised by your new team player pretty quickly.
Chances are that your Gemini date will surprise you with a gift every now and then, even on a first date. It’s exciting, it allows them to use their creativity, the list is long. But you should get the point by now. Their impulsiveness could make them buy something in the moment. We’re not saying you should buy your date a gift just for the sake of it, but well, it wouldn’t harm them either. Maybe something that’s interesting and unexpected. We wouldn’t spend too much on anything at a first date, or even just forget about it, just don’t be surprised if they got you something.
Spend But Save
Now that you know that a Gemini could decide to buy something in an impulse, don’t think they’re not able to save some money. They really can. Not only does it allow for new adventure in the future, but it’s an intelligent thing to do. Just like investing in real estate for example. They get to enjoy a comfortable home whilst the value could increase over time. Like we said, they’re ambitious, and money could be of great help along the road.
We agree, taking about money is not the most important thing in life. We just wanted to let you know that a Gemini could bring you a present whilst they also manage to save and invest for the long run. It’s all a matter of enjoying life. Why shouldn’t we buy a present if it’s exciting to buy, pack, and finally hand over? It’s definitely a great conversation starter. And as you know by now, conversations are worth a lot! A balanced financial approach should benefit life in multiple ways. We get to enjoy both the present and the future. What’s not to like?
Things That Could Annoy You
We definitely don’t want to generalize, but it’s often hard for a Gemini to accept their flaws. If you had an argument, and it turns out you were right all along, they won’t just come and say sorry. Let’s say your Gemini friend is responsible for you two having an issue, well, they won’t just take the blame like that. Sure, you can tell them how you feel and why you think it was their mistake, but don’t always expect a simple sorry. This can change over time since we’re all humans and continuously grow, but generally speaking this is what you could expect.
Instead of saying sorry, a Gemini could come up with a million excuses. They’re so talented when it comes to communication. You could find yourself in a position where you just don’t know what to say. They really know how to talk around the subject with their creative and intelligent vibes. That’s just how a Gemini often approaches things. Depending on your own verbal talents this could change within an existing relationship, or maybe you just learn how to deal with it.
Indifference (Do They Actually Like You?)
Don’t worry, a Gemini could love you deeply even though they may seem indifferent. We explained their “all over the place” personality a few times already, and it often boils down to that. Since they seem to be busy most of the time, sending messages to their friends, or even reading the news while you enjoy your dinner together…yes, there’s a chance you’ll find them indifferent. But don’t worry, they don’t mean it that way. Even if they don’t apologize after being wrong, they can still love you deeply.
In The Bedroom
Yes, a Gemini loves to share the sheets just like most of us do. However they can be a little uncertain. The thing is, they usually have a very adventurous mind with loads of creative ideas. Romance however can come across as a little dull with too many routines. And even though they like it, it’s often not a whole lot of fun without new experiences. However, if you express your adventurous mind, things could be awesome. They just need that little push since they’re absolutely open for new ideas.
Even though romantic moments can really differ between Geminis, a good amount of them could come across as a little shy or uncertain about being intimate. Just like many other people, uncertainty can result in a variety of words just popping out of a persons mouth. Maybe they’re not really sure how to act to something as normal as intimacy, it’s a normal thing to do in the end. Crazy or dirty talk could be a result, even when you least expect it.
Share Your Thoughts
This all being said, what could you do? Well, it’s pretty simple. You could decide to guide them. Let them know how much you like them and that you’d really like to try new things. If you tell them what you like, they’ll feel comfortable enough to share what they like. And that’s (once again) how a relationship with a Gemini usually works. You talk, you share ideas, and you reach a conclusion together. So yes, help them a hand.
Dating a Gemini is mostly about communicating. Make sure you listen to what they’re saying, but also be yourself and share your stories. This sign is curious, creative, and probably wants to know as much as possible about you.
If you’re original, adventurous and ready to explore new things, this could be a great match. A little surprise here and there, a fun excursion, you name it. A Gemini is all about exploring and having fun.
Don’t easily get frustrated by their double personality. This usually doesn’t last too long. They’re just all over the place from time to time, but that’s fun and adventurous as well. If you prefer a quiet life without exploring new ground, this is probably not your best match. No matter if you’re a man or a woman.
