Your Ideal Valentine's Date, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Originally Published: 

Valentine's Day has been painted as a holiday filled with oversized bears, roses, chocolates, and sweets — but really, it's much more than that. It's a day of romance, and whether that's delivered by you or someone else, love and giving are the underlying themes. Your ideal Valentine's Day date, based on your zodiac sign, reflects the small or grand gestures you consider to be worthwhile.

The idea of this date actually happening gives you a tremendous amount of butterflies. In your mind, it's like you're living out your very own fairy tale with your special someone. That's usually the aftermath of a perfect date, no matter what day it is on. It's scenic every time you replay it in your mind.

Since I'm talking about the highly anticipated Valentine's Day, in particular, it's safe to say that people have some expectations — and there's nothing wrong with that. On a day so infused with romance, some people just want to feel like they're receiving a special slice of it that was amazingly tailored to all of their desires. Although, what's adorable to one person could be absolutely terrifying to another. Keeping in mind the qualities and traits associated with your zodiac sign, you'll find that any of these dates will send you flying past the moon and among the constellations.
