What it's like to date a Sagittarius

Inevitably, there are risks associated with this carefree attitude to life, notably in their quest for adventure and their independent nature. The Sagittarius is known to be one of the signs with the greatest fear of commitment. They do crave a little romance, and they can be quite sexual at the beginning of a partnership, but it is just a part of the relationship for them.

They may have a tendency to avoid serious relationships or marriage and prefer instead to continue their single lifestyle. Given sufficient space, they can still function perfectly well in a long-lasting relationship, but if they start to feel their partner is smothering their independence, they will not flourish. It should also be said that, once they are in a truly compatible relationship, the Sagittarius can make wonderfully enjoyable and committed partners.

Her natural charm makes it easy for her to start new relationships but, as with the male, she is not always so good at sustaining them. She, too, will need the freedom to explore and to express herself. The Sagittarius woman is regarded as among the least domesticated of all the Zodiac signs, as she will always be guided by her need for adventure.

If you are looking to settle down quietly, then the Sagittarius is unlikely to be the partner who can provide that way of life. They simply do not want to be tied down or made to feel like a possession. But, if you have the patience to let the relationship develop, and the trust to allow them the freedom to roam, then they can be among the most enjoyable and rewarding of partners.
