2 Is Better Than 1: 6 Truths You Must Overcome To Date A Gemini

by Kelley Lord

In this age of dating, people want quick responses.

They want to know immediately if you're interested in them, or in this case, they want to know if your signs are compatible.

If you're pursuing a Gemini, however, things aren't nearly as simple. Beyond having multiple personalities, Gemini is not a fixed sign.

There are three types of sign classification (cardinal, fixed and mutable), and with Gemini being a “mutable” sign, it means they are always subject to change.

You basically need to throw everything you thought you knew about them out the window.

It's important to note when crushing on Geminis that they are ruled by Mercury.

Mercury is the planet of communication, so it's very important to them.

Although they can be passionate partners, it's not what they value the most. Gemini are known to be clever and witty.

If you can't keep them intellectually stimulated, they will quickly get bored with you.

Famous Geminis include Johnny Depp and Marilyn Monroe, both of who have been known to express a complex web of emotions, as well a great skill for adaptability.

If you're hoping to become intimate with a Gemini, there are six lessons you must understand and overcome to truly create a deeper connection:

You can't love us for half of who we are

Geminis are most notoriously known for having two personalities.

While some people may think this means they have conflicting sides, like cool and fake or happy and angry, it differs depending on the person.

A Gemini might seem like the life of the party sometimes, and other times, he or she may find comfort in a bit of isolation from everyone.

In other cases, a Gemini can be very understanding and patient one day and very annoyed or snippy the next.

Everyone deserves to be loved for who they are, entirely. You may like your Gemini's wild or attentive side, but if you can't appreciate him or her in every light, it just wasn't in the stars for you two.

We carry the whimsical warmth of summer

There is no denying every Gemini was a summer baby. While pretty much everyone gets excited for summer, you'll notice a true glow radiate from every Gemini once his or her season arises.

When the sun is out, Geminis break out of hibernation and blossom into the people we all fall for, the selves they most identify with.

Like flowers, Geminis open up in nature and live for the sun. With summer, though, comes freedom, distraction and carefree fun.

Geminis get so caught up in the euphoric moments they sometimes forget what they truly value all year round.

If you want to be with a Gemini during this time of the year, it's best to show them you care and embrace their warm essence.

Our creative trait needs to breathe

Geminis are known for being creative, and it spills into all aspects of their lives.

Whether it's writing down an idea or soaking in a show, it's important they have time to gather their thoughts and freely express them.

The typical connotation of the working writer who lives in a cabin in the woods was most likely based on a Gemini.

Whether it's a few minutes to take a picture of something that inspires them, or a few days to themselves to brainstorm, it's important to stand back and let their creative juices flow.

Don't wonder if you should offer help and advice. They will either welcome it or bluntly let you know when it's time for a solo mission.

We're always striving to feel centered

Because Geminis tend to be indecisive, they're always trying to figure out who they are and who they want to be.

In this journey to feel centered, Geminis look for people or things to help them feel balanced.

If you think a Gemini is looking to you for this type of support, then be a muse, not a comfort blanket

Because Geminis are so good at adapting to different situations and people, they can sometimes lose track of who they are.

Admire them for their unique qualities, and they will be more confident in breaking from the norm and expressing their true, independent selves.

Encourage and explore their vast array of interests

Growing up, Geminis were never the ones to stick to one hobby or passion. They became infatuated by many things, crossing over into multiple verticals.

By the time you hit college, you are known for your major, and after school, it's all about what you do for a living. This feels foreign to Geminis.

If you can bring them back to the time when they tried painting, dancing or science experiments for the day, they will gravitate toward your adventurous personality and admire you haven't typecasted them.

Allow yourself to open up to Geminis because they'll always know where you're coming from

Having split selves allows for a vast range of emotion. Sometimes, all it takes is the simplest thing to bring a smile to a Gemini's face.

But, at the same time, the smallest off-hand comment or occurrence can consume him or her.

You would think this means Geminis are super sensitive, but they are generally very easy-going.

However, they are attuned listeners, so choose your words wisely when conversing with them.

Geminis felt the extremes of confidence and insecurity, annoyance and gratitude, sadness and joy.

They'll know when you're faking it, and they'll be sure to make you comfortable when you're being real.

If you find yourself attracted to a Gemini, it's probably because you feel like he or she understands you.

It seems like he or she sees past the surface you put up for others, and it's because a Gemini does.

Letting your guard down will seem a lot easier to do once you see how receptive a Gemini can be. So, the best way to be with a Gemini is to show him or her the real you.
