That's why, when dating an air sign, you can expect hella movie dates, panels on niche subjects they're interested in, or leisurely strolls through a museum.

They Don't Stop Talking

Sometimes, their non-stop talking is endearing. Other times, can be annoying. But when it comes down to it, air signs are chatterboxes because they're constantly learning.

Libras love talking to their partners about the new things they learned after a day at the museum. Forever a "people person," your Gemini partner will talk your ear off about all the cool sh*t they learned in their sociology class. And don't get an Aquarian started on the true crime documentary they watched the night before.

All air signs relish the opportunity to chit-chat with a trusted partner — well, anyone who will listen, in Gemini's case — about the insight they've gathered form constantly learning.

They Love To Go Out And Party

For air signs, their party of choice isn't a rager or the club. Both are too loud for them to discuss their Riverdale conspiracy theories or the country's political state. An air sign's ideal party will be a laid-back house party or a small gathering at their place.

Since air signs are so talkative and good at creating connections, expect to be introduced to everybody when you show up to the party as their partner.

They Always Stand Up For What They Believe In

Along with being outspoken, air signs are activists, and they aren't afraid to stand up for what they believe in. In some cases, "activist" might literally be your partner's job title, or their outspoken side will shine in the slogan shirts that line their drawers, or in how vocal they in the art they create.

You'll probably crack a smile when your Libra, Gemini, or Aquarian boo comes home and tells you about how they stuck up for the underdog at work.

They're Not-So-Secretly Sensitive

Air signs wear their hearts on their sleeves pretty much all the time. Once you've dated one for a while, you never have to think twice about a Gemini's favorite musician, or an Aquarian's favorite philosopher. Air signs will tell you about the things they're passionate about without stoping for air.

But, since air signs are so good with people, others might assume they just know how to let criticism roll off their back. The tea? They don't. Air signs may not react in the moment, but Libras, Aquarians, and Geminis are sensitive, and quick to feel hurt. The better you get to know your air sign partner, the easier it will be to tell when they're low-key upset.

Your Friendship Will Be The Key To Your Romance

The other secret about air signs is they truly thrive when their partner is their friend in addition to their lover. Their status as the center of attention, the "Hermione" of the class, or an activist in their community means a lot of people may know their name, but even then, they might not have that many close friends. A partner an air sign can be truly intimate with — and not just sexually — is what Libras, Aquarians, and Geminis crave.

From a confidante to bounce ideas off of, to a judgment-free shoulder to cry on, to a loyal partner-in-crime, you'll never get bored dating an air sign. As their partner, you'll learn a ton, and grow to love how dynamic Aquarians, Geminis, and Libras can be.
