Would You Or Wouldn’t You Date A Scorpio?

by Ashley Fern

Does a person’s astrological sign really say something about his or her dating personality or overall disposition? Many people strongly believe in the stars and what they stand for, while others do not. Regardless, it’s always fun to investigate such a topic and explore it in its entirety.

We're currently in the cycle of Scorpio, so we are going to take a closer look at the qualities of a person born between October 23 and November 21. Would you want to date someone of this sign? What qualities outweigh others and which do not?

Time to whip out the pros and cons:


1. Inquisitive

Curiosity is what breeds intelligence. How can you ever expect to learn anything if you aren’t asking questions? Scorpios are well aware of this concept and utilize it to their full advantage. They want to know everything about -- well -- everything. Nothing is too obscure for them as every aspect of life fascinates them.

2. Sense of intuition

Your gut is what is going to guide you to make the right decisions in life. It is what you internally believe to be true without influence from outside sources. A strong, wholesome person is one that can trust his or her instincts from beginning to finish.

3. Control of their destiny

People who realize that they are in control of their own destinies are those who are the most hardworking. They realize that outside influences are not what will make their dreams and goals, but hard work will. Scorpios don’t leave their fates up to anyone but themselves. They take responsibility for themselves and do not seek to blame any external forces.

4. Determined

Once Scorpios set a goal, it is impossible to get them off track. They know what they want, they develop a plan and they seek to accomplish it. This is an amazing quality to have in a partner because you don’t want someone who isn’t willing to work on things. You want someone who cares and who wants to make the best out of every and all situations.

5. Passionate

Obviously you need passion in any relationship, but it's most important in a romantic one. This is an essential quality to have in a partner as it really keeps things interesting and exciting. Lack of passion is detrimental to relationships and this is something you will never have to worry about when dating a Scorpio.

6. Fearless

This is one of the most attractive qualities people can possess regardless if they are in relationships or not. Not being afraid of anything is what allows you to try new things and gain new experiences. What could you accomplish if you knew you could not fail? People who are fearless do not accept failure and will do whatever they can to achieve their goals.


1. Does things on their own terms

Don’t try to push your opinion on a Scorpio because he or she won’t give a sh*t. If Scorpios don’t agree with what you have to say, they are most certainly not listening to it. They do things their own way and were probably the people who inspired the phrase, “My way or the highway.” Compromises are crucial in relationships and if you aren’t able to do that, well then I wish you the best of luck on your short-lived fling.

2. Stubborn

Stubbornness is never an attractive quality. This goes hand-in-hand with the aforementioned characteristic. They aren’t willing to see things from another person’s perspective the majority of the time, which can cause a lot of tension and problems in a relationship.

3. Secretive

Ah, secrets: the pitfall of relationships for anyone at any age. Honestly, secrets are imperative in relationships because trust is the foundation on which these relations are formed. If you are keeping secrets from your partner, why are you even dating him or her in the first place?

4. Short temper

This is a tough one -- some people just can’t help having a short fuse. This is a negative quality no doubt about it, but it is one that can be channeled in the right way. As long as this person knows how to channel his or her anger, this isn’t always a deal breaker.

5. Vengeful

Revenge ain’t a good look on nobody and that’s for damn sure! Seeking revenge on others does more harm to yourself than the person you are out to get. Sabotaging your partner is horrible for any relationship. This is a quality you can work to overcome and so it is not always a reason to break up.

After careful evaluation, it really looks as if a Scorpio would be a great match.
