This Is The Dating App You Should Try, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Are you new to the dating app game and not sure where to start? Or are you a veteran swiper who just isn’t seeing the results you desire from all that finger labor? Either way, what you need to know to make sure you're getting the most out of your online dating experience is which of the many, many, many dating apps is the right one for you. One way to figure that out is by knowing which dating app you should try based on your zodiac. That’s because, like so many things, dating app compatibility comes down to your personality. For instance, which app interface is best suited to your personality? One that gives you seemingly endless potential matches to peruse through, or one that will do most of the matching work for you? It also matters what kind of relationship (or non-relationship, for that matter) you're looking for. Depending on your goals, the vibe of the app is going to attract more like-minded people and improve your chances of romantic success — however you personally define that right now.
By considering your sign, by element, and what is most compatible with your personality type, it can help point you in the direction of the app that's the best fit for your goals and dating style, too. With that in mind, here is the dating app you should download today.
Fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, should try Tinder
The creator of Tinder must have had fire signs in mind when they built this app, because there could not be a better fit for these hot and passionate signs.
Aries: Having all those possible matches along with the potential excitement and adventure they represent is a massive turn-on for this bold and powerful sign. Plus, the rapid pace of matches really speaks to their impulsive and spontaneous nature.
Leo: The search for love is something Leo takes very seriously, so you might think Tinder matches — which can tend toward more casual relationships — might not appeal to the proud Lionesses. But if they are honest, all the ego boosts getting swiped right on provides are just so tempting that they can’t quite seem to quit Tinder, and, before they know it, they will have found their partner.
Sagittarius: For commitment-adverse Sagittarius, Tinder feels like home because there are so many new people to meet who are like-minded about love. What’s the rush? This app feeds Sagittarius’ social side, but allows them the distance to opt in and out whenever this free spirit feels the whim for romance (or just a fling).
Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, should try Bumble
Bumble is the ideal app for air signs who, despite their breezy demeanor, really do prefer to be in the driver’s seat in life — and especially in love. This element is a force of nature and tends to be all go. So, is it really a surprise that an app like Bumble that encourages them to make the first move would be so appealing?
Gemini: While some signs might be too intimidated to make the first move on Bumble, Gemini, with their incredible gift for gab, has no problem kicking things off in chat. Sure, they could do that on any app, but with Bumble everyone who signs up knows the score: This gal will be taking the lead and is in charge of the pace.
Libra: Social Libra, like Gemini, has no trouble initiating conversations. They are master-level flirters and want to date someone who will really appreciates and can balance out their gregarious nature.
Aquarius: Aquarius is not in any rush to settle down. They need to take their time and really get to know someone before they are ready to fully let them into their unique world. Being able to control the pace of the relationship and the communication is perfect for this romantically gun-shy sign.
Earth Signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, should try Coffee Meets Bagel
Who has time for all the swiping? I can tell you one thing for sure: Earth signs do not, which is why having a limited number of highly curated matches on Coffee Meets Bagel is perfect for these no-nonsense signs.
Taurus: Taurus may have a huge and warm heart, but that doesn't mean they are indiscriminate when it comes to matters of the heart. Nope, this sign, in a word, is… picky. Taurus has very high standards and wants a partner who shares their values and their lifestyle. So, they would rather have a handful of carefully curated matches than a billion so-so matches.
Virgo: Is it really any surprise that highly critical and perfectionist Virgo wouldn’t want to have to wade through a sea of sub-par matches? If anything, that is the perfect recipe for a Virgo to grow frustrated and give up on dating altogether. Who needs the stress of that when science, math, and an algorithm can pick the perfect match for you?
Capricorn: Listen, when you are an ambitious Cap who is in the process of taking over their corner of the world, who has time for all that left and right swiping nonsense? Cap is busy — but they also want the best matches possible in the most efficient amount of time, which is why the small number of daily, carefully selected options is perfect.
Water Signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces should try OKCupid
For deep and passionate water signs, having a real connection based on emotional compatibility is essential. So, they need an app that puts personality and personal values at the forefront of its matchmaking. This is why OKCupid, with its questionnaires, is the app they should definitely try first.
Cancer: For Cancer, their biggest romantic hurdle is feeling safe to open up and come out of their shell. So, having a match built on compatibility of values and romantic goals goes a long way toward making them feel safe. A match based on the first impression of a photo is the quickest way to make this sign feel unsafe and guarded.
Scorpio: Outwardly Scorpio may seem like more of a fire sign, which is why they often do really well on Tinder. However, when Scorpio is ready for a relationship, that's when their water sign tendencies come to the forefront. This is a sign that wants an emotional soul connection, and so basing their compatibility on personality and values is the way to go.
Pisces: Ever the romantic, Pieces wants to find their perfect soulmate match. Chances are this is a sign that has tried all the apps and, while other signs may have gotten discouraged, hope springs eternal in this sign’s heart. But what Pisces should do right from the start is weed out all the other folks who just want something casual, and go straight for someone who has the same traditionally romantic goals in mind.
While all dating apps have their merits — and, depending on where you are in terms of your romantic goals, may be right for you at different times — it doesn’t hurt to start with an app that attracts like-minded folks by picking the one that best suits your personality type and go from there.
