For some people, flirting is a skill that comes as naturally as breathing. But for others, the art of flirting is a daunting task that can turn them into a blithering idiot. Sometimes it can be hard to predict how a person will show their interest, but it’s not such a mystery if you know a bit about their star sign. Here’s exactly how each of the zodiac signs flirts!
Arians will draw you in with their daring and brilliant escapades. They are attracted to fearless and adventurous spirits, so be ready to play along if you want to keep them interested. Their flirting style is robust, competitive and even exhausting, but the sheer thrill of it all will keep you coming back for more. They can be quite playful so expect games, arm wrestling and all sorts of shenanigans!
Taurus is a bit more restrained when it comes to flirting preferring to play the long game. They’ll wait til all of the show-offs in the room have run out of steam before swooping in to make a move. They can be a little bit nervous and self-conscious in their approach but their shy style can also be cute as f*ck. They are protective and reassuring but never desperate, instead they hold steady until they’ve gotten so under your skin that you come to your senses.
Gemini is the sign of seamless contradictions and their flirting style is no different. Their words can be puzzling and their body language tough to decipher. One moment, they’ll look so boredand distracted that you’ll think they aren’t interested… then a moment later they’ll lunge in for a kiss so passionate that you’ll think they are obsessed. Sure, they can be slightly maddening at times but they’re so intriguing that you’ll keep coming back for more – one date is never enough!
Cancer is a lover of romance who will sweep you off your feet with compliments and attentiveness. When they flirt they have a unique ability to make you feel like you’re the only person in whole damn room. When they turn on the charm they can be extremely alluring so watch out. They’ll win you over with their kindness and then make you melt by whispering sweet nothings in your ear.
Often blessed with a magnificent mane of hair and stylish attire the Leo attracts with their presence and then backs it up with unwavering confidence and self worth. They are both sensual and dangerously tactile with their fingers and teeth. At evenings’ end they’ll leave you desperately craving another audience with this royal sign – should you survive!
Perfectionists, Virgo are hard on themselves and everyone else. They are often elegant poised and sharply turned out. Their style of flirting can sometimes seem more like a job interview with a careful selection of criteria to be addressed. But they will soften over time and begin to flirt in more overtly whether that be by laughing at your unfunny jokes and even dishing out a well-crafted compliment.
Libra will flirt with a stick – they’re just compelled to make everyone and everything feel wanted and loved. They can be breathy, innocent, wide eyed and very touchy when they’re into someone. Sometimes recipients will misinterpret a Libra flirt fest for something more substantial. Best just to enjoy their charm and go for something more casual before bringing up commitment.
Scorpios can be rather direct when it comes to flirting and showing interest in someone. They will stare you out from across the room whilst looking eloquently disheveled. Tactile and darkly humorous they flirt with precision and the promise of illicit activities. Be assured they only weave their magic on those they are genuinely attracted to… but when they turn on their magnetic charm they can be simply intoxicating!
When a Sagittarius flirts they like to keep things fun, lighthearted and upbeat. They will capture your attention with their dry sense of humor and ability to tell a damn good story. Should they try to ‘woo’ you they will be energetic and active in their approach – expect a whole lot of craziness and hilarity.
The Capricorn doesn’t mess around with fake bravado when trying to win your affections – their flirting style is much more casual. First they’ll charm you with both their their intellect and authenticity. Then they’ll lay a compliment on you that’s so thoughtful that you’ll know they are paying attention. They understand that less can sometimes be more and that there’s no reason to rush a good thing!
Aquarians are the types that can make love to your mind without even laying a finger on you. They are deeply aroused by intelligence and knowledge, and turned off by boorishness and ignorance. They can find physical flirting to be a bit of a mystery. But they’re naturals at peaking your curiosity and tantalizing your mind until you’re left wanting more.
The Pisces can go from being cautious and timid one moment – to shamelessly promiscuous in just one of two stiff drinks. When sober they can be rather shy when it comes to flirting. But when they’re in the middle of drunken flirtation it’s not uncommon to hear people scream “get a room!” as Pisces engages in displays of affection.
Whether they’re tipsy or totally drunk – each of the signs have different shenanigans that they get up to when they’ve been drinking. Some will become emboldened and turn into the life of the party whilst others wind up in the kitchen crying over drama. Read ahead and find out whether you’re a two-pot-screamer or still standing steady after a keg or three!
This sign loves an alcoholic beverage and has the capacity to drink most of their friends under the table. The only problem is that – as risk takers – adrenaline usually kicks in at some point – and that’s when you suddenly find them walking a tightrope between two 20 story buildings. It also won’t be easy to talk them down because that would mean losing face. Try offering a bribe of one more drink!
Taurus is usually a happy drunk and good fun to have around. They will also manage to still ensure that friends and family have a safe ride home or a shoulder to cry on. The only time a Taurus causes drunken chaos is when the inner dancer takes over – and the bull in the China shop is unleashed – arms and legs will rotate like cyclonic windmills. The bull has been known to take out an eye or smash a prized Ming vase when in the midst of a drunken dancing frenzy!
Cancer are not the tidiest of drunks and are fond of channeling their best Irish poet when hammered. They weep for lost friends and lovers but will also be philosophical and toast to new beginnings. They miss their home their dog, their first grade teacher and often lose their wallet and phone in a night of reminiscing. As Cancer gently rolls into a ball of drunken memories put a blanket over them – they’ll be fine in the morning.
Gemini look like they’ve got everything under control, funny, talkative and steady on their feet – then suddenly – without warning they’re vomiting into a pot plant and talking gibberish. They are the “surprise” drunk at any function that leaves everyone wondering what happened. The Gemini drinking threshold is also unpredictable – sometimes it’s one glass and sometimes it’s a whole bar fridge! Be prepared for turbulence!
Just because zodiac royalty Leo can be flashy and loud it doesn’t follow that alcohol produces the same traits. Often they transform after a few drinks into introspective observers – keen not to lose control or act in a less than regal fashion. They are also prone to drunken sulkiness if not given the right amount of attention – if they’re in a bad mood – they can descend into hammered grumpiness.
Virgos are not usually big drinkers – they don’t like the smell or the taste and would much prefer pharmaceuticals. They also have the worst hangovers of all the signs and you will hear about it for days. When they do imbibe their normal lack of tact can become full throttle and friendships may be lost. Best keep Virgo sober and looking after others.
The Libra personality love a bit of drunken Karaoke and somehow can manage to coax even the most anti social attendees into a round of tacky 90s hits. Infectious in their enthusiasm they can turn a dull event into the party of the year. The only down side is that, if fully tanked they become loose with their hands and lips – and spread the love a little too far.
Alcohol loosens Scorpios tongue and sting and they transform into fabulous storytellers, weaving magical tales about themselves and friends. It’s not important if these stories are true just let Scorpio take you on a journey of the imagination. This sign is also able to elegantly pass out wherever they stand or lie – that’s when you know the party is finished.
Sagittarius are practical jokers that devise elaborate pranks when drunk to play on friends and family. Sometimes they do misjudge other people’s understanding of what actually constitutes for humor and end up in the dog house or a holding cell – just make sure you don’t join them!
The Capricorn sign loves a social drink or two and will be sure to touch base with everyone in the room about everything. They can indulge in a bit of grandstanding, when over the limit, and bang on about politics or portfolios. But it’s one of the few times that they actually allow themselves to let their guard down and not worry about all of the bullshit.
Alcohol helps the Aquarius to alleviate the pressure that comes from having to save the world on a daily basis. As they unwind conversation will go from deep and meaningful to superficial and gossipy. But they also know when the limit has been reached and will simply disappear without saying goodbye – don’t take offence – they’re just done.
The Pisces sign is a master of self medication. If going through a down period they can get quite sentimental and loose with secrets. Their tolerance for liquor is low and some of the crazier ones have been know to end up in hospital with alcohol poisoning. However – if happy and settled – this sign can be one of the sweetest drunks around – spreading joy and fairy dust wherever they go!
You don’t think life can function without you properly. You’re always go, go, go even when you’re not feeling like yourself. It often causes you to feel overwhelmed and stressed about the tasks you struggle to accomplish. Give yourself a break, life will continue to move forward without you. You don’t have to always be the superhero.
You fear messing up too much; you stress yourself out about missing deadlines or not making it to a meeting on time. You fear making people upset and you make yourself sick over people being mad at you or not thinking you’re good enough. Things will work out, just trust. You often make the problems much worse than they actually are in your head.
You let the little things get to you and it causes you a lot of stress. You would benefit by mind calming activities to stop you from screaming at the person who pulled out in front of you on the road or from thinking someone is stupid for pronouncing a word wrong.
Your anxiety goes through the roof when you feel unsafe. Walking alone at night makes your heart feel like it’s in your stomach. But you also can’t take criticism or people staring at you, it all makes you extremely anxious. Don’t repress your emotions, breathe and tell people what’s on your mind. You need reassurance to feel a little better.
Anytime you’re not in control of a situation you fill with anxiety. You need to know that things will work out even if you’re not constantly behind the wheel controlling every decision you’re involved in. Sometimes you just need to cut yourself a break from worrying and just follow along to someone else’s plan.
Your trigger is overthinking. You think way too much and you’re your own worst nightmare when it comes to causing your anxiety. You overthink most decisions and freak yourself out, but once you start doing it you are okay. You need to trust more that things will be okay, write things down and don’t always assume the worst.
You like things fair, anything you feel is unfair completely stresses you out. You tend to overthink the pros and cons of situations instead of acting in the moment, you need to breathe and just respond in the moment, instead of sitting on things for hours rushing through all the different scenarios in your mind.
Not having enough privacy or quiet makes you anxious. You need your space and you hate it when people don’t respect that, it makes you feel tense and nervous. You just want everyone to respect your boundaries.
Conforming to society stresses you out the most. You hate being told how to behave, dress or act. You don’t like deadlines or sitting in traffic. You can become extremely restless and it causes you a lot of anxiety.
You are the root of your anxiety. You put way too much pressure on yourself and set strict deadlines for yourself. You feel frustrated if you don’t meet them. Stop thinking about the “what ifs” and live in the now.
If things aren’t your way you get anxiety over it. You try to clarify things and you get stressed by time, easily. You try to do too much at once, you need to slow down and relax. Sometimes things won’t go your way, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong or isn’t going to work out.
Feeling overexposed makes you anxious. You hate public speaking and it makes you stressed, just like big crowds and too many people in your area. You can make yourself sick over the invasion of personal space, but it will all be okay. Just breathe through it.
You are the adventurous best friend. People love to have you in their inner circle because you push them to do things they wouldn’t have the courage to do on their own. You want the best for your friends and you know they’ll only achieve that if the wander out into the unfamiliar once in awhile. People become better, more well-rounded versions of themselves when they’re friends with you.
You are the loyal person who is there for your friends no matter what. You’re 100% there for your friends when they’re going through a hard time, you’d give them the shirt off your back. You’re so generous that it can get exhausting at times, but your friends love knowing that they can lean on you when they need to, you’re a foundational support system in their lives.
You are the one who always makes your friends have a good time. You make people smile and inject them with a hit of your infectious, happy energy. There’s never a “normal” day spent with you because you’re always interested in (and doing) new things. You related to the Mary Tyler Moore theme song, “she can take a nothing date and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.”
You are the loving best friend. When someone needs a shoulder to cry on, there’s no one they’d rather go to. You’d never make someone feel dumb or silly for the way they feel, so you’re the perfect person to listen intently and help someone sort out exactly why they’re upset, and what they need to do to make things good again.
You’re the glamorous friend. You’re a bit of a mystery even to those closest to you, they don’t understand how you do all the things you do. Your existence seems so enviable from the outside because as a Leo, you like to put on a bit of a show. Luckily you’re also a generous friend who lifts those around them into the spotlight with them. You give people an exciting taste of what kinds of things are possible in life if they could only be as confident as you are.
You’re the loving “mom” of your squad. You have your shit together and you teach your hot mess friends how to “adult”. People always call and text you when they have questions about practical adult matters and you love being there for them in this way. You’re a teacher and a leader in your friend group, and everyone’s lives are a little bit more stable because of it.
You’re the friend everyone turns to when they need advice. You’re a master of relationships and you always understand what people’s secret motivations are. Whether it’s work or relationship drama, the people close to you know that you have an uncanny gift for listening to a complicated situation and helping them figure out a simple solution.
You’re the protective best friend. When someone takes advantage of your friend or they don’t stick up for themselves you’re there for them, demanding they get the treatment they deserve. You won’t allow your friends to settle for less than the best. Also, you’ve made at least one of your friend’s exes cry using only your words.
You’re the fun friend everyone needs to have in their life. You lighten the mood and help people stop taking everything so seriously. Your friends belly laugh when they’re with you. You can make anyone have a good time — and you take that challenge seriously. People love being around you because you get them out of their heads and into a good mood.
You’re the classy best friend. You love giving your friends career advice and organizing overly adult-ish parties like salons and dinner parties with fancy themes. You curate your social group carefully and end up with an enviable group of talented friends. People want to be in your inner circle because they realize it’s an honor to be there.
You’re a unique and cerebral friend. You always help your friends understand points of view they hadn’t previously considered. You’re the perfect person to go to for advice because you can dispassionately help someone understand the pros and cons of different courses of action without judgement. People go to you when they need to make a major decision.
You’re the artistic best friend. You’re the person people go to when they want to listen to music and chill out or spend an entire weekend on DIY projects with. You’re extremely unpretentious and authentic. People want to be around you because you’re so sure of yourself and who you are, you help others channel this energy too.
March 21 – April 20
You are energetic and passionate about everything you do (and competitive of course), so your #basic fall activity is totally pumpkin-carving. It all starts with getting the best of the best pumpkins (because you can’t imagine settling for anything less). You’ll probably also host a competition for the best-carved pumpkin, quickest-carved pumpkin, most-amazing-tasting-pumpkin-seeds, and pretty much anything else that gives you a chance at beating out your friends. You can’t help it, you just love a good race. (And a good post-win pumpkin selfie.)
April 21 – May 21
You crave security, stability, and safety, so when it comes to October activities and getting the sh*t scared out of you, you’d much rather it be somewhere where you know you won’t be actually killed by that guy with the chainsaw. Your favorite #basic fall activity is a hayride—calm, predictable, and still fun. On a hayride you can kick back, sip on some spiked hot chocolate, laugh with friends, and not have the nagging fear that a clown with a knife is going to pop out from around the corner. Well, at least you hope.
May 22 – June 21
You hate being bored. I mean hate. So anything slow, dull, or mundane? Nope, you’re not about that life. When it comes to #basic fall activities, your favorite is a Halloween-themed booze cruise. There you can socialize, wear a crazy costume, try as many spooky beers as your heart desires, and be constantly on the go. Oh, and get shamelessly drunk of course.
June 22 – July 22
You tend to be protective, so you’re all about the #basic haunted house this fall. This gives you the opportunity to save your friends/significant other/family members from serial killers hiding behind doors or rabid werewolves lurking in the woods right outside the porch, while still getting a good laugh at how scared your friends/fam actually get. (Because lol, right?)
July 23 – August 22
You love when everyone around you is having a good time, so your ideal #basic fall activity is, of course, hosting a costume party. You’ll go all out—decorations, spooky spiked drinks, best-dressed contest, even Halloween-themed snacks—all at your pad. You love organizing, creating a fun atmosphere, and being in charge (of course). But even though you can sometimes be a little much (aka slightly bossy), you always have your party-attendees’ best interests at heart. And you’re always down for a good time. Duh.
August 23 – September 22
When it comes to #basic fall activities, you’re the ultimate planner. You’re the one who’s researched where the best Halloween beer-tasting events are in town, or all the local spots to try the pumpkin flavored drinks. It’s halfway through October, but you’ve already attended a Haunted Mud-Run, volunteered at a kid’s costume party, been to at least three haunted houses, and are currently stressed trying to plan the next few weekends because OMG HALLOWEEN IS ALMOST HERE!!
September 23 – October 22
Of all the signs, you’re the most chill, so when it comes to #basic fall activities, you’re all about two things: (1) sitting at Starbucks for hours, sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte and chatting with friends or (2) handing out candy on your porch in your pjs. But, if you’re persuaded, you’re the type to most definitely participate in the matching couple costumes. You’re just cute and romantic (and #basic) like that.
October 23 – November 21
You have a lot of energy. That means your #basic fall activity is definitely a haunted hike. There’s something about the outside air, being on your feet, and taking copious amounts of BFF-on-the-trail selfies (or solo-selfies, since you don’t mind being alone) that just get you pumped.
November 22 – December 21
As a Sagittarius, you never settle. You’re always looking for the biggest, baddest thing to attend with friends/fam, and you might not admit it, but you’ve been secretly looking at October activities since, like, August. That’s why when it comes to a #basic fall to-do list, you’re all about Halloween-themed amusement parks. Anywhere you can ride rollercoasters, be outside, and occasionally get a good scare is totally you.
December 22 – January 20
When it comes to #basic fall activities, you can never decide. When you’re doing one thing, you can’t help but want to be somewhere else—you just want to do it all! Your go-to #basic activity, though, is most definitely Trick-or-Treating. Here you can dress up and get free candy all while sipping on some drinks (because pregame, duh) and then you can head over to a more adult-like party—the best of both worlds for your conflicted mind.
January 21 – February 19
You’re a rebel, so when it comes to being #basic, you’re the sign that’s most-likely down to scare as many kids as possible. Whether that’s hiding out by your front door and scaring the pants off of Trick-or-Treaters or screaming bloody murder at any haunted house you attend, you love getting dressed up and making the entire month of October scary AF.
February 20 – March 20
You’re the emotional sign, so hands down, your favorite #basic fall activity is costume shopping. You love getting a group together and hitting up the stores, trying on ridiculous outfits, taking sh*t-tons of pictures, and bonding over Halloween happy hour drinks afterwards. You’re all about being around your buds, laughing, talking about life, and, of course, finding costumes that look cute together, because #squadgoals.
Similar to PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder … People who have once shared their life with a narcissist may go through some corresponding occurrences which will resemble the symptoms of PTSD. We may call this PNSD or post-narcissist stress disorder.
The post-traumatic stress disorder develops after a person has experienced an event or action which causes intense fear, disbelief, helplessness or horror.
While it is common to have a period of adjusting and coping after a narcissist, for many of us, these periods of difficult adjustments may continue for quite a while. By taking some time, attitude adjustment, letting go of the narcissist and with taking care of yourself, such traumatic reactions will get better and disappear completely as well.
Any factor can bring on a PNSD. Even some things as simple as the familiar smell of his/her cologne on a stranger walking by … A song playing on the radio, or certain foods. It really does not matter what brings you back to that terrifying nightmare. What matters is that instantly and out-of-the-blue you can get back to a time in your life which was mentally and emotionally disturbing. These kinds of identifiers are called ‘triggers’.
The three main symptoms of PNSD are:
Some of the symptoms of intrusive memories of the narcissist may include the following:
Some of the symptoms of avoidance and emotional numbing may include the following:
Some of the symptoms of anxiety, as well as of increased emotional volatility may include the following:
The narcissist experience may haunt people for a long period of time. It also has the ability to interrupt your daily life, as well as activities, and also invade you at any unforeseen moment.
