4 Zodiac Signs Who Aren't Super Romantic, But Show Love In Their Own Way

Originally Published: 

You know that part in a romantic comedy when it seems like all is lost, and then the love interest shows back up with a grand gesture, like breaking into song, or making a humbling declaration that proves just how in love they are? Yeah, I hate that part. I know, I know, I’m in the minority on that. I just find those moments so cringey! But then, what else would you expect from a Virgo, one of the zodiac signs who aren’t super romantic — at least not in the traditional sense, anyway.

Every sign in the zodiac is capable of being very romantic and showing their partner just how loved they are, but what that demonstration actually looks like can vary wildly from sign to sign. For some signs, it’s flowers, poems, and moves straight out of a Nicholas Sparks joint, but for others, romance is more subtle or more practical, but just as heartfelt. So, if your partner is not the type to sweep you off your feet old-school style, or if you would seriously prefer no one tried those tactics on you, chances are you, like me, are one of the astrological signs who just aren't all that romantic.

Gemini (May 21 To June 20)

While Geminis may be short on romance, they have plenty of charm to spare. That's because this Mercury-ruled sign has a talent for communication and a true curiosity about other people. However, this air sign is also notorious for its short attention span, so if they grow bored, they can lose interest quickly. All this doesn't exactly lend itself to grand romantic gestures. However, when Geminis find a real partner, they have their own unique ways of expressing love, and that's by giving you all their undivided attention. This can make you feel like you truly are the only person in the world, and they'll go out of their way to make you laugh and put a smile on your face.

Virgo (Aug. 23 To Sept. 22)

For an earth sign like Virgo, your stereotypical romantic gestures just feel a bit, well, silly. This is a sign that really responds more to effort and thoughtfulness over more flowery forms of romance. And Virgo expresses their love the same way. This means that while you probably won't receive a poem or serenade from your Virgo paramour anytime soon, this thoughtful and observant sign expresses their love and affection on surprisingly insightful acts of kindness.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 To Jan. 19)

Like their fellow earth sign, Virgo, Capricorn really isn't into the fantasy aspects of romance. This is a very grounded sign that puts a high value on their time and energy. So, if you want to know how a Capricorn feels about you, pay attention to how much of both of those things they dedicate to you. This is a sign that shows its romantic side by always carving out time just for you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 To Feb. 18)

Of all the signs in the zodiac, Aquarius is likely the least traditionally romantic. But really, is it any surprise that this sign would eschew the expected? Aquarians are truly unique, and follow their own instincts and paths in all areas of life, including how they show love. Their idea of romance can be really creative, literally in that the person they care for becomes the inspiration for their art. Or it can simply be about letting that person in. Typically, Aquarius' inner circle consists of one person: Themself. That's because they so rarely find someone they feel "gets" them. But if your Aquarian lover is opening up about their emotions and letting you see their vulnerable side, well, that beats a dozen roses any day.

Here's the thing: Romance just isn't for everyone, and that's OK. It definitely doesn't mean you don't have a big and loving heart, it’s just that you choose to express it in your own unique and beautiful way.
