6 Things You Must Accept If You Want Your Relationship With A Gemini To Last
Ah, 'tis the season of the Gemini.
Geminis are renowned for their gentle, affectionate and curious nature. As an air sign, Geminis are sociable, communicative and fun, but they can also be serious, thoughtful and reckless.
The only thing certain about the Gemini is, you never know what to expect. Geminis crave mental stimulation and variety, and they often struggle with routine and repetition in all aspects of life, including work, relationships, travel, etc.
Geminis' unique needs can make them almost unbearable to date.
So, I've put together a list of fundamental things you need to know about Geminis before you can develop healthy relationships with them:
1. You must be willing to change it up.
A Gemini's biggest pet peeve is routine. Geminis certainly won't settle for a boring, repetitious relationship. Be fun, and mix it up. Go on non-traditional dates, and surprise your Gemini man or woman.
Geminis will appreciate the thought, and your relationship will benefit from variety. You will find it difficult to stay with a Gemini if you expect consistency in a relationship.
(PS: This counts for in the bedroom too. Keep an open mind, and be prepared to try all kinds of new things.)
2. Geminis aren't exactly dependable or reliable.
This doesn't mean they will intentionally let you down. Geminis are often blissfully unaware of how their actions affect others, and sometimes, they only have eyes for themselves.
As their partner, you must be independent, self-sufficient and very patient. From experience, most Geminis I know are aware they're not the most reliable people out there, and they are very apologetic for it. Don't make them feel bad, but do help them work on it.
3. Geminis can be hard to trust
If you have trust issues and are considering entering a relationship with a Gemini, I want you to have a long and hard think about this. Geminis, while not dishonest, are more often than not caught up in the moment.
There's a great chance you will find yourself thinking, "Did he or she really mean that?" The longer this happens, the more it will mess with your mind. If you have trust issues from previous relationships or are generally an over-analytical person, remember Geminis are very hard to read.
4. Geminis live in the moment.
This is great trait of the Gemini. They are always happy and fun people whom everyone loves to be around. They're often the life of the party, and others have a natural gravitational pull toward them.
However, in a relationship, this can be a huge problem. For those who are planners, you may find Gemini an absolute pain the ass. A Gemini may feel pressured and become detached if he or she is pushed, especially in conversations about the future of your relationship.
This shouldn't be mistaken for your Gemini not caring; he or she honestly just hasn't considered it.
5. Sex doesn't matter as much to them.
I mean, of course it matters ,but to a Gemini, the actual sex isn't as fun as the excitement that comes with it. Be playful, and again remember that Geminis hate routine. Never get too comfortable.
6. Geminis are distant from their emotions
Personally, I find this the hardest Gemini trait to deal with. As a Libra, I am all about emotions, but Geminis are very complex. This makes them hard to reach. This is a struggle even for them, as they also have a deep need to be understood.
If you're prepared to listen (and I mean really listen), you'll be able to gain thoughtful insights about your Gemini man or woman. This will help build your emotional connection, and it will make you feel special. This Gemini chose to let his or her guard down in front of you.
Geminis really are all over the place. However, if you're willing to stick it out and overcome some of their small personality hurdles (we all have them), they can make amazing friends and lovers.
