Capturing a man’s attention is the first, and most vital step, when it comes to finding a potential mate. Back in the day, women had to be submissive and follow certain societal norms. It definitely was unacceptable to make the first move, so they just had to sit around and wait for the man to do it all.
Now, times have changed, and the roles have too. Women have to put a little more work in now when it comes to attracting a partner. And we know it isn’t easy - every man is different. Luckily enough, though, astrology can steer us in the right direction. Based on a man's zodiac sign, we can find out a lot about him; from his characteristics, behavior, to his likes and dislikes. Let’s take a look at what things capture each zodiac sign’s attention.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
Aries men are believers of love at first sight, but don’t get it twisted - they love a good challenge even more. If you want to intrigue an Aries and draw him in closer to you, play hard to get with him. He won’t be able to get enough of trying to figure you out.
Aries are also very competitive, so don’t be afraid to give him a bit of competition, too. But be careful not to overshadow him; it has to be just the right amount to make him interested. And, this one might seem cliche, but give him genuine, real compliments. They don’t like suck-ups. However, they do love to hear how awesome they are.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
This one might be a little harder to win over than the other ones. Taurus’ like to move slow, so capturing his attention will be a pretty long process. Things such as small presents, or baking him a delicious batch of cookies, will make him feel appreciated.
Taurus’ also has a great sense of humor, so try to be funny and witty. Trust is huge for them, too, so you have to show him that he can trust and rely on you. After all these things have been checked off his list, you’ll see him considering you more than just a friend.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
When attracting a Gemini man, you need to appeal to their intelligence and their charming personalities. And come prepared to compete with others for it, too. Geminis are up-to-date on everything that's going on in the world. From world events to politics, you’re going to have to make sure that you can hold your conversation.
Gemini’s are also all about being spontaneous and love going on adventures. The Gemini man will adore you if you’re able to come up with something fun and exciting in the heat of the moment, so don’t worry about planning everything out in advance.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Cancer’s aren’t really a "love at first sight" kind of man. They won’t fall in love with you from first glance. In fact, it’ll take them some time to actually notice you. You’ll grab a Cancer man’s attention by showing him how caring you are. Not only towards him but towards other humanitarian and charitable causes, too.
Don’t be bold and brash because they’re not big fans of that - let him take his time to realize how truly wonderful you are. These signs love to pampered and babied, by the way, so a surefire wire to his heart is through his stomach! Once he lets his guard down and begins to trust you, that’s when you’ve grabbed his attention.
LEO (July 23 - August 22)
Leo’s love beautiful women - its a fact. And these beautiful women are luckily attracted to Leos too. If you want to stand out from the sea of women, try to give him thoughtful gifts and always let him know that you’re thinking about him.
They love the attention! This is one guy that’ll appreciate you texting him all the time. And, as long as you keep giving him that attention, and make some grand gestures, he’ll be obsessed with you in no time
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
Virgo’s love everything that's fascinating and captivating. Just an ordinary girl won’t do it for this one - you’ll capture his attention by being smart and assertive. Try doing something that will make you stand out. Whether it's being the one person at the party who's helping the host/hostess or becoming a volunteer at a local charity, the Virgo man will surely become intrigued and start putting himself in places you'll be so he can get to know you better.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
This one might be a bit of a challenge. You can capture a Libra’s charm quite easily, but keeping a Libra man’s attention is a whole other problem. You see, this sign is easily distracted and usually very popular, so there’s a lot of competition waiting for you out there.
To captivate a Libra, you need to bring all the charm and sophistication you have to the table. Be flirty and charming, but at the same time, shower them with compliments too and let them know you find them spectacular.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)
If you’re trying to capture the attention of a Scorpio man, you need to take up some of his hobbies and show him that you have similar interests. Whether it’s through a mutual activity you can do together, or have a mutual topic for discussion; they need to see that you both have something in common. Scorpios are also very sexual and sensitive, so by being sensual with him, he’ll see that he can trust you. And that will definitely grab his interest and attention.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius might sound like a tricky man to seduce. This is because this zodiac sign loves meeting new people, and is captivated by everyone they meet. To stand out, show the Sag your positive energy and lust for life.
Once he feels that he’s discovered you, he’ll be enamored by you. The Sag man loves traveling, new experiences, and nature, so taking him out on a road trip or white water rafting would be the perfect way to grab his interest.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorn men are attracted to women who are strong, resilient, and intelligent. If you have your own life, work hard, and stand up for yourself, chances are you’ll effortlessly capture the attention of a Cap man.
Because they enjoy talking about work, your best chances would be to share your career ambitions, your goals, and achievements, and then, in turn, talk about his. Be real and honest with a Cap, and he’ll be captivated by you.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
An Aquarius man will notice you when you stand out from the crowd. Instead of trying hard to impress him, do the complete opposite. Just be yourself and bring out the most unusual and unorthodox sides of yourself.
Aquarius loves everything that's not traditional and unconventional, so when they get a glimpse of your eccentric side and uniqueness, you’ll have them hooked. Also, they’re huge humanitarians and are all about good causes. So if he sees you supporting anything of the sort, his interest will definitely peak.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
Pisces don’t have the best of luck when it comes to choosing women, and there’s a reason behind it. Most of the time, the issue is that the women just go into the Pisces man’s life with little effort on his part.
To grab his attention, you need to have a well-thought-out plan, and it has to be done subtly. You’ll have to spend time with him gradually, introducing yourself as a friend or acquaintance into his life first. And make sure to show him your sweet and feminine sides.
