Best first date for an Aries
Man: And… action! Get tickets to a sporting event, go bowling, or take a walk or a run together. If you want romance to grow, keep it moving and his heart rate will go up — for you.

Woman: She’s got all-star confidence but appreciates a guy with a firm plan. Stay away from one-on-ones on the basketball court unless you want to taste defeat. Spice it up with dinner at a restaurant with a zesty atmosphere afterwards.

Best first date for a Taurus
Man: The way to a Taurus’ heart is through his stomach. Make dinner together even if you’re the worst cook on earth. The process of conjuring the meal is where the magic of romance begins.

Woman: Gentle, high-end luxury is a man’s best bet to impress, but if you can’t afford your town’s fanciest restaurant, finesse the details. Come with flowers, offer your arm, walk slowly and show you care. You can go anywhere if you do it right.

Best first date for a Gemini
Man: He’s a smart guy with a short attention span. Theatre, movies, or a dinner party will give him the entertainment factor he needs and a flirtation device you’ll appreciate.

Woman: Honestly, you can take this lady anywhere — provided you’re ready to lay on the charm, wit, and focus. If you make her laugh and listen to her stories, you’re guaranteed to have fun together.

Best first date for a Cancer
Man: Do not put this guy on the spot. An easygoing evening with dinner, a stroll, or maybe a dessert or coffee is enough. You can’t rush him or else he’ll crawl into his shell and you’ll never see him again.

Woman: She’s tough on the outside, soft on the inside — but you won’t see the soft-hearted part for a long time. Do something you truly like to do, and she’ll trust you. She has an internal device that screens for game-playing, so be sincere — or don’t bother.

Best first date for a Leo
Man: Make an extra effort with your appearance, and get ready to laugh up a storm together. Theatre — especially interactive shows or comedy clubs — are a guaranteed winner.

Woman: Go for the “wow” factor — try something exotic or exclusive to start things off with a bang. Front-row concert tickets are a great example. Show you’ve thought it through, and she’ll be impressed.

Best first date for a Virgo
Man: Come armed with compliments, because he’s tough on himself. Ask him to help pick a restaurant, because he has clear preferences about his food. Be patient — he probably won’t believe you really like him at first.

Woman: A flea market would tickle her fancy. Trust her to find a good bargain, then spring for it and she’ll be yours.

Best first date for a Libra
Man: He likes cool stuff. You could take in a vintage car show, a jazz concert, or a movie, just as long as it’s hip. Take time to look good for him — trust us, he’ll notice.

Woman: She wouldn’t mind a date that could be something straight out of the 1950s. Show up, be courteous, take her for a milk shake or a classy gallery opening, flirt respectfully, and see her home at a decent hour. She can’t resist a gentleman.

Best first date for a Scorpio
Man: He must be in control of your outing — or at least feel that way. Keep it subtle, suggestive and sincere. He’d like to meet at a nice lounge where you can talk with both body language and words at the same time.

Woman: She’ll seem easygoing, but she’s totally shy. Give her lots of eye contact, because it says that you think she’s hot. If you take her to a little café and let the conversation find its natural course, you’ll be sending all the right vibes.

Best first date for a Sagittarius
Man: He’s a curious guy who doesn’t like to mince words, and neither should you. Choose an art exhibit, a local concert, or a behind-the-scenes museum tour. Afterwards, you’ll have a lot to discuss during your first conversation alone together.

Woman: She’s impressed by someone with smarts and self-motivation. Make a real plan: a trivia night, a not-too-serious lecture, or a little-known jazz club will keep her entertained. Pique her curiosity and she’ll come back for more.

Best first date for a Capricorn
Man: Understated is this man’s main objective. A casual stroll before dinner, a nice-but-not-too-hip restaurant, and a warm but not gooey goodnight kiss will do the trick.

Woman: This woman has high standards, so give her an evening that shows you know how to treat a lady. Make a reservation with a good table, great service, and gentle conversation. Let her come to you.

Best first date for an Aquarius
Man: He’s quirky and lives in his head. Forget tradition; embrace spontaneity. Check out local listings for events that feature performance art, poetry readings, or try a new ethnic restaurant for dinner. He likes to be surrounded by creative spirits.

Woman: She’s open to your vibe and she’s your companion — so, what do you want to do? Go to a bookstore, people-watch in a karaoke joint, or try visiting a local festival. Having not-too-structured fun together is a great way to start.

Best first date for a Pisces
Man: Still waters run deep. He’ll seem together and tough, but he’s soft and cuddly. No crowds, loud spaces or harsh music, please! A low-key blues club, a stroll under the night sky, and holding hands lightly will charm him. Then, he’ll take the lead.

Woman: She’s into art, music and beauty, but needs time to process her feelings. Lend her a book of poems to read, take her to hear some music that you both like, and grab some ice cream afterward. Gentle, romantic, and no-pressure is the ticket.
