Gemini (21 May - 20 June) 

According to TheTalko, Geminis are social, bubbly and playful, so you need someone that can help you have a good time! The article also notes that you're not into people that are too stiff to crack a joke or two, because humour is a major turn on for you.

Don't date a Scorpio or Virgo, says Elite Daily – you're too easygoing for a Scorpio, who is fiery by nature, and the Virgos are far too quiet to satisfy your energetic personality. 

You can't go wrong with a Cancer or Libra – both Cancers and Geminis are romantic, and while you're flexible, your Libra partner is independent, making you complement each other really well.

Aquarius (20 January - 18 February) 

Aquarians are humanitarians, crave space and don't appreciate clingy behaviour, and most definitely do not want to be in a relationship with a whiny partner, notes Relationship Rules

Your ideal partner? The one who isn't afraid to be themselves and can help you save the world. 

Taurus (20 April - 20 May) 

Astrologer, Anya Kotzuba explains that people born under the Taurus sign are "fans of the indulgent life" and Refinery29 describes Taureans as organised and hate it when change disrupts their everyday routine. And they're hardly forgiving.

This means that your ideal companion will respond to your hard-headed personality with affection and tolerance. Astroreveal notes Virgo and Capricorn to be the most compatible with Taureans. If you date a Taurus, you're doing so at your own risk: you'll see your bad traits reflected in your partner and it might just make you blow your top.

Scorpio (23 October - 21 November) 

It's all about compromise, explains Refinery29. They give of themselves but expect the same in return. Scorpios also crave 'alone time' and can become quickly annoyed when they don’t get it. They also feel each emotion more intensely than the other signs, according to Horoscopeupdates.com, so Scorpios need someone that can feed off their passion and intensity.

Zodiacfire.com explains their ideal soulmate as "someone with depth and imagination, who thinks and feels deeply, but who doesn’t necessarily reveal all of their cards at once".  

Leo (23 July - 22 August) 

You're fiery and you know it. You're vocal about the things you don't like and your loyalty knows no bounds. And, according to Astrology-zodiac-signs.com, you hate being ignored and not being treated like a queen. This means that your perfect partner is the hopeless romantic, is always prepared to listen to you and remembers what you have to say. For Leos, it's basically "love me or leave me alone".

Cancer (21 June - 22 July)

Cancers make for unpredictable lovers, says compatible-astrology, but they have huge hearts and a lot of love to give.

They're also very private and don't take well to their mothers being insulted (does anyone, though?), says Astrology-zodiac-signs.com. All they really seek is harmony, and Zodiacfire.com puts it best: a Cancer's soulmate is "an intelligent, affectionate and sensual soul with an empathetic heart".

Virgo (23 August - 22 September) 

You're a rational, practical person and a go-getter. Your heart may say one thing but it's your mind you're going to obey. And if anyone tells you otherwise, you're quick to make it happen and prove them wrong. Sweetyhigh.com categorises you as the "intelligent loner".

Anya further adds that because Virgos tend to stress easily, they need order and structure in their lives. So the person who can handle you must be smart, have a methodical approach to life and must behave supportively – meaning they should be willing to work hand-in-hand with you to achieve your dreams. 

Capricorn (22 December - 19 January) 

For the most part, Capricorns are level-headed, but when "pissed off they can be brutal with their words", says Zodiacsign.com. They also have high standards, so won't settle for less than they deserve.

Knock them down and they'll swiftly get back up and move on. To land a Capricorn, your prospective partner has got to have some class and style, and take pride in themselves.

Libra (23 September - 22 October) 

Looks, brains and confidence is what a Libra lady wants from her partner, notes Zodiacfire.com. Librans also have killer intuitions, adds Refinery29, so there's no fooling them.

The planet ruling the Libra is Venus, making Librans great lovers but also fond of expensive, material things, explains Astrology-zodiac-signs.com

They also note that Librans are in search of a partner who wants to nurture and support them but without their pride being endangered in the process.

Pisces (19 February - 20 March) 

Compassionate, spiritual, intuitive, gentle, wise, musical: sound familiar? While Pisceans possess these remarkable traits, they're also overly trusting, notes Astrology-zodiac-signs.com.

Needless to say, you hate cruelty of any kind, and your pet peeve is someone that knows-it-all. Apart from that, all you really want is somebody you can connect and communicate with in a deep and meaningful way. 

Aries (21 March - 19 April) 

You have energy that can drain someone that's unable to match your level of activity

Since you're sporty and possess youthful strength, your soulmate is someone that can keep up with your dynamic and energetic lifestyle. If your partner can't keep up and is too afraid to take bold risks, they might just not be the one for you, says Zodiacfire.com

Sagittarius (22 November - 21 December)

Horoscopeupdates.com explains that in mythology, the centaur – the symbol for Sagittarius – was half man and half horse, given to pursing pleasure. Shown with a bow, the centaur shoots and wherever the arrow lands, he follows, retrieves it and shoots again.

Because of their curious personalities, people born under this sign have a driving need to explore. They dislike clingy people, and, according to LovetoKnow horoscopes, Sagittarians are considered the proverbial bachelors and bachelorettes of the zodiac. Your ideal soulmate is somebody with a fun-loving approach to life that's willing to travel the open road with you in search of the meaning of life.
