Some of the best things in life are two-in-one items. Think: peanut butter and jelly in the same jar, shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle, or better yet, a lover and a best friend in the same person. While any zodiac sign can play both of these roles in the their partner's life, some zodiac signs find it easy to be your best friend and your lover because playing those dual roles comes naturally to them.
These signs have big hearts, they prioritize closeness over space, and for them, loyalty is everything. They also have an innate gift for nurturing relationships and are just as easy to like as they are to love. So, it just makes sense that they’d slide perfectly into both the lover and BFF roles in their partners' lives. If that sounds like the kind of SO you're looking for, here are the signs to add to your must-date list.
Taurus (April 20 — May 20)
If you want a lover and a best friend, then look no further than Taurus. This warmhearted, generous, reliable partner is one you can always count on to have your back through thick and thin. They’re always the first person to offer their shoulder to cry on, but this is especially true when it comes to being there for their partner. They want to create the best life they possibly can, so they see whoever they give their heart to not just as a lover, but a truly equal partner.
Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22)
Leo is basically the human embodiment of the phrase "live, laugh, love." They take a lighthearted approach to life and romance, so they choose partners they can have a great time with. Leo is looking for a partner who truly appreciates and adores them for who they are, and, in return, Leo offers them undying loyalty. Leos is also very loving and extremely faithful, which makes them excellent partners, but they also bring brightness and warmth to every interaction in keeping with their ruling body, the Sun. As such, they’re just as easy to love as they are to like.
Virgo (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22)
There’s nothing a Virgo won’t do for the people they care about. (Except maybe hold back on the unsolicited constructive criticism, but hey, they do it all with love.) Apart from being a bit critical, Virgo can be both a stellar partner and a best friend because they take all their relationships very seriously. They believe in being there and taking care of the people they love, so you can expect them to show up for you through the good times and the bad. They’re in the front row cheering on your triumphs, and the first one to help you pick up the pieces if things fall apart — just like a best friend would.
No zodiac sign has a monopoly on being great as both a partner and a best friend. With the right person, those kinds of bonds just form easily and naturally. But these signs make creating relationships that are the best of both worlds look so easy, you'll regret swiping left.
