Are You More Practical or Romantic When it Comes to Your Relationship? Your Zodiac Sign Tells All

Are You More Practical or Romantic When it Comes to Your Relationship? Your Zodiac Sign Tells All

There is no right or wrong when it comes to how you love your partner. But your zodiac sign can reveal how you express it.

Everyone romances differently. Some people's idea of it includes long walks on the beach, a night out to their favorite restaurant or even receiving a nice massage from their partner. For some others, having help around the house, being supported in their endeavors and passing on the responsibility of the kids to their significant others spells love, more than the conventional ideas and acts of romance. And your zodiac sign can reveal which one you prefer:

Verdict: More romantic than practical

You might be the kind of person who values independence and are driven to achieve all the goals you set out for yourself, but underneath that ambitious surface, is a romantic at heart. From surprising your partner with a spontaneous trip to setting up a nice candle-lit dinner, you are at the top of your game and you enjoy building on the bond you have. But that doesn't mean you don't have a clear idea of what real love is - you know it's not all roses and beaches and it takes trust, commitment and compromise to make a relationship work.

Verdict: More romantic than practical

Your ruling planet is Venus, the planet of love and beauty. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that along with your logical side, there is a flirtatious, sensual, and love-dovey side to you. You love giving gifts to your significant other and you love it, even more, when you receive gifts from them. They could be simple sticky notes with cheesy lines on them or a flower on the pillow when you wake up - it's these little things that help strengthen the bond between you two. Not to mention, there is always fire when your partner gets under the sheets with you. But they know that if they break your trust, you're done.

Verdict: More practical than romantic

You're the kind of person who enjoys being intellectually stimulated more than being serenaded with a love song. You have a fast-paced life and you expect your partner to be able to keep up with the kind of frequent changes that come in your life. The idea of romance changes based on your mood which is why you rely more on practical love from your partner. A good conversation, some help around the house, spending time with the children - these are what make you happy when it comes to being happy with your partner. Of course, that doesn't mean you won't bring out the occasional wine or go for a nice walk with them.

Verdict: More romantic than practical

When it comes to love, you're either all in or not at all. Once you are ready to put in your full effort for your partner, you pull out all the stops. Your idea of romance includes being open and trusting of your partner. You want to make them feel safe and secure and you like it when they do it too through their cuddles, kisses, and hugs. However, it's not just these physical gestures that make you feel loved. When they stand up for you or support you in your dreams, you know that they truly love you and they know that you would do the same for them.

Verdict: More romantic than practical

You might be a lion in the boardroom but when it comes to your partner, you love the romantic attention you get from them. Any kind of reassurance that you are their priority only makes you love them more. All it takes is a little kiss on the cheek before you leave or cute notes left in your lunch box or on the bathroom mirror to make you feel like royalty. You don't mind them showing you off to others. But you know it's not enough to be just romantic or cutesy all the time. You need to know that your partner is willing to be committed and willing to compromise in order for the relationship to stay solid.

Verdict: More practical than romantic

Being constantly attuned to the world and realistic about a lot of things, you tend to avoid things that seem superficial including the whole notion of romantic love. For you, love is more practical. Whether it's fixing something up for your partner or ensuring that they let you know if they're safe, it's your way of expressing love. While it might initially come across as invasive to your partner, they begin to understand it's just how you are and that you only mean well. Your idea of romance is not very traditional - you don't see it as a waste of time but you do believe there are more important things.

7. Libra

Verdict: More practical than romantic

You love being able to hold an interesting conversation with someone who matches you intellectually. Not to mention, you appreciate a good sense of humor. For you, love isn't going out to dinner or party. It's more about feeling loved by your partner. And when they support your independence and gently urge you out of your comfort zone to try new things, that's when you're reassured about the connection you have with them. When you have a partner who goes out of their way to help you with your dreams, you know you've found someone special.

Verdict: More romantic than practical

The age-old passion that sparks the fire between two people is what you crave from your partner. You enjoy it when your partner encourages you to try new experiences with them in order to create special memories. Be it going out to amusement parks together, or visiting a monument, or even trying your hand at scuba diving, doing it with your partner makes it all the more special. And you'd love for them to sprinkle the experience with intimate touching every now and then. But beyond everything, you really need your partner to match your emotional depth and connect with you on a deeper level.

Verdict: More practical than romantic

When your partner supports your dreams and actually helps you achieve them, that's what you call romantic. You're the type of person who has so much going on in their daily life and you are continuously putting in all your energy into all your tasks. So you appreciate when your significant other can try to keep up or better yet, help out around the house in order for you to be able to take a break from the high-intensity day you have. You know you are loved when your partner shares your optimism, accepts your blunt nature and keeps you from feeling caged. That doesn't mean you don't like the occasional foot rub after a long day.

Verdict: More practical than romantic

When it comes to being a romantic, you don't have the best reputation. It isn't that you aren't the warm, caring person your partner knows you are. They have faith in the fact that you will always have their back and will always be around in times of need. But you are more practical than romantic. You just don't want to waste money on something like flowers that will most likely die within a day or on a romantic weekend getaway. You don't like being pressured into anything and find the smallest, most routine things with your partner actually more romantic. 

11. Aquarius

Verdict: More practical than romantic

You're the kind of person who is often described as "detached" or "aloof" even though you're not. But when it comes to relationships, you're not the most expressive partner. Additionally, you're not a big believer of love at first sight and would rather be friends before moving into something serious. You want your partner to get to know you properly and accept your eccentricities before you let them get close. You want them to understand that grand gestures like setting up a romantic dinner or going out for a walk on the beach is not exactly your style. You find it most romantic when they can have a deep conversation with you.

Verdict: More romantic than practical

You are one of the most traditionally romantic signs of them all. It's almost like your idea of romance flew straight out of a movie set and into your lap - walks in the park, cuddling up at a cozy restaurant, new experimentation between the sheets. When it comes to loving your partner, you are the most expressive one. You love being affectionate with them no matter who is watching. But being an emotional sign, your emotions are constantly all over the place and you want your partner to be able to accept and keep up with that side of you.
