Ah, tis the season of the Gemini.
Gemini’s are renowned for their gentle, affectionate and curious nature. As an air sign, Gemini are sociable, communicative and fun but can also be serious, thoughtful and reckless.
The only thing certain about the Gemini is that you never know what to expect. Gemini’s crave mental stimulation and variety and often struggle with routine and repetition in all aspects of life; work, relationships, travel, etc.
Gemini’s unique needs can make them almost unbearable to date. So I’ve put together a list of fundamental things you need to know about Gemini’s before you can develop a healthy relationship with them.
1. THEY HATE ROUTINE
Gemini’s biggest pet peeve is routine. They certainly won’t settle for a boring, repetitious relationship. Be fun and mix it up! Go on non-traditional dates and surprise your Gemini man or woman. They will appreciate the thought and your relationship will benefit from variety. You will find it difficult to stay with a Gemini if you expect consistency in a relationship.
P.S: This counts for in the bedroom too – keep an open mind and be prepared to try all kinds of new things.
2. THEY AREN’T EXACTLY RELIABLE OR DEPENDABLE
This doesn’t mean that they will intentionally let you down. Gemini’s are often blissfully unaware of how their actions affect others and sometimes only have eyes for themselves. As their partner, you must be independent, self-sufficient and very patient. From experience, most Gemini’s I know are aware that they’re not the most reliable people out and are very apologetic for it. Don’t make them feel bad but do help them work on it.
3. THEY CAN BE HARD TO TRUST
If you have trust issues and are considering entering in a relationship with a Gemini, I want you to have a long and hard think about this. Gemini’s, whilst not un-loyal or dishonest are more often than not caught up in the moment. There’s a great chance that you will find yourself thinking ‘did he/she really mean that?’ The longer this happens, the more it will play on your mind. If you have trust issues from previous broken relationships or are generally a over-analytical person, remember that Gemini’s are very hard to read.
4. THEY LIVE IN THE MOMENT
This is great trait of the Gemini. They are always happy and fun loving people that everyone loves to be around. They’re often the life of the party and others have a natural gravitational pull to them. However, in a relationship this can be a huge problem. For those who are planners, you may find Gemini an absolute pain the a*s. A Gemini may feel pressured and become detached if they are pushed, especially in conversations about the future of your relationship. This shouldn’t be mistaken for them not caring, they honestly just haven’t considered it.
5. SEX DOESN’T MATTER AS MUCH TO THEM
I mean, of course it matters but to a Gemini the actual sex isn’t as fun as the excitement that comes with it. Be playful and again – Gemini’s hate routine so never rest on your laurels!
6. THEY ARE DISTANT FROM THEIR EMOTIONS
Personally; I find this the hardest trait to deal with about Gemini’s. As a Libra, I am all about emotions however, Gemini’s are very complex making them hard to reach. This is a struggle even for them as they also have a deep need to be understood. If you’re prepared to listen (and I mean really listen) you’ll be able to gain really thoughtful insights into your Gemini man or woman. This will help build your emotional connection and will make you feel special because it’s you they’ve chosen to let their guard down to.
Gemini’s really are all over the place. However, if you’re willing to stick it out and overcome some of their small personality hurdles (c’mon, you’ve got your own too) they can make amazing friends and lovers.
