Sagittarius: Nov. 22 - Dec. 21

The Sagittarius Man

Interested in a Sagittarius man? Sagittarius men tend to come in two varieties. On the one hand you have the Dark Knights, and on the other you have the Court Jesters. Either way, Sagittarians are possessed with an exuberant optimism that can sometimes get them in trouble.

They tend to think the best of others when they shouldn't and have faith in things turning out okay; they tend to trust in luck or divine intervention more than any other sign of the Zodiac.

What's even more interesting than this statistic is the fact that luck often gets them out of trouble or danger. They tend to find themselves in the right place at the right time; some of them are luckier than the law should allow.

Unfortunately, it's this love affair with lady luck that leads them into risky behavior, even with money.

Straight shooter

A Sagittarius man has the habit of shooting straight from the hip; his speech tends to be exceedingly direct, and generally blunt; even when they make a joke they tend to forget to coat it with the veneer of subtlety. This behavior often gets on friends nerves and is considered quite shocking by others.

But this kind of behavior is never intentional; the Sagittarian is never cruel, and hates dishonesty in any form, but sometimes they lack tactfulness, subtlety or both.

No Boy Scout

One thing you can be sure about regarding the Sagittarian attitude toward romance is that they are no Boy Scouts.

Because his ideals usually pertain to abstract principles, he's not too practical when it comes to the nuts and bolts of building a solid relationship: he tends to getting romantic on the surface, not in the depths of his soul.

The good news is that the Sagittarius man is honest about this and won't mislead you into expecting more from him than he's willing to give. In fact, if you've suffered the pain of broken vows and false promises, you may find this honest and adult approach to relationships refreshing.

But sometimes the Sagittarius man is misunderstood, and his friendship is mistaken for love, but Lady Luck will usually show up and rescue him from this dilemma before things get ugly.

Keep your suitcases handy

If you're serious about building a lasting relationship with a Sagittarius man, you need to make it clear that you can't be tied down, and don't rain on his parade. It won't be long before he's ready to talk terms, having found a kindred spirit.

At this point you need to start packing your bags, or at the very least keep them ready, because almost any relationship with a Sagittarius involves a lot of traveling. Try to understand his practical approach to emotions, and try to practice it yourself.

What to expect

Expect your Sagittarius man to be critical and blunt; don't hold out for his clumsy behavior to change.

You may need to get used to smoothing things over with others after he makes one of his big goofs. If he's a typical Sagittarius man, he'll be perfectly happy for you to be independent financially, and he won't try to take control of your own money, but if he gets into one of his gambling moods, don't lecture him about it, and don't lend him the money to do so.

Let him entertain when he wants to, and with these few ideas in mind, enjoy the adventures you will have with your Sagittarius man!
