Sagittarius women are attractive for many reasons. They’re smart, witty, funny, and have a magnetic aura around them. You’ll want to get to know her more, but it’s quite easy to scare her off. Here’s how to attract a Sagittarius woman the right way.
Know a Bit About Sagittarius
Sagittarius tends to not get as much limelight as other well-known signs like Gemini, Cancer, and Leo. Here are the essentials you need to know about Sagittarius.
You’ll always know what Sagittarius thinks. If you ask her how she liked her meal at a restaurant, she’ll reply with her honest feelings. “It was great — the risotto was delicious,” or “It wasn’t quite good, to be honest. I think the chicken was too dry” are some things you can hear. At least you’ll always know where she’s coming from.
Some people like that honesty because her thoughts are transparent. If she doesn’t like something she’s eating or doesn’t like what you said about something at a dinner party that night, she’ll let you know. She won’t tell you a couple of days later when the situation has passed, she’ll tell you right at the moment when it’s fresh on her mind.
Don’t confuse honesty with malicious intent. Sagittarians are observant, kind, and always have the best intentions when they act. If she said something that was hard for you to hear, she thought it was the proper thing to do.
How you handle what she told you, then, becomes something for you to handle with grace. If you can’t seem to do that, you’ll have to communicate with her on how you’d like to receive hard news or pieces of information in the future. Any relationship of any kind needs a strong pillar of communication, but that’s especially important with Sagittarius women.
She’s free-spirited at her core. She’ll tell you stories of rebellion when she was a teenager and going against the grain in her young adult years. Sagittarius women don’t like feeling like they have to conform to standards that differ from their own, such as in school or in society. They want to express themselves how they see fit.
Sagittarius is also quite an independent sign. They regularly need time away from people to collect their thoughts and center themselves. If a Sagittarius woman spends too much time with a partner, they can start to feel annoyed and suffocated. If a partner can’t give a Sagittarius woman the space she needs, she’ll want out of the relationship so she can breathe again.
That independence also translates to dating as well. You won’t find a Sagittarius woman saying, “I think I found the one” after just the first date with someone. You can find that behavior in clingier signs like Cancer or Pisces, but not Sagittarius.
Instead, getting too mushy with a Sagittarius too soon can turn her off. She likes getting to know people incrementally. It feels more sustainable that way.
If someone opens up to you and tells you their life story the day you meet them, what will you talk about in subsequent meetings? How will the bond deepen when you know everyone’s secrets?
Sagittarius likes a slow burn when it comes to building a bond with someone as opposed to passionate flings that end just as quickly as they started. A Sagittarius woman is in it for the long haul if she finds you interesting and worth committing to.
It takes a while for a Sagittarius woman to open up to you. Secretly, she’s quite emotional, but you won’t know it. She only shares that personal side with herself for people she trusts deeply, such as siblings, close friends, or family members. Since you’re starting off as a stranger, you better expect a long time before you see her emotional side.
As a result of her high emotional walls, it may feel like you’re not progressing a relationship deeper with a Sagittarius woman. She doesn’t want to talk about deep feelings within the first week of knowing her, and she’ll often change the subject if you try to inquire into her emotional life.
If she’s not ready to talk about her emotions, you’ll know it. At the least, she’ll probably tell you. If you try to press her to talk about things before she’s ready, though, she might end the relationship in search of someone who also prefers to take things slower.
She may not be the one strutting through the streets in an ostentatious outfit, but she won’t shy away from the spotlight either. A Sagittarius woman knows her talents. She knows she’s smart, witty, funny, and outgoing. She knows she’s a great person to be around, so she likes it when she’s acknowledged for the skills.
While she tries to keep her love of attention under wraps, that need for attention can still poke through. If you dislike it when someone tries to take the spotlight for themself or divert attention back to them, you might not like being around a Sagittarius woman. The attention she gets will be well deserved, but it can be annoying, nonetheless.
Now that you know the main tenets of the Sagittarius zodiac signs, here are the top things you should do to attract a Sagittarius woman.
How to Attract a Sagittarius Woman
Don’t Be Pushy
Some people think picking up a woman involves being aggressive. Perhaps you’ve been told to be persistent when a woman isn’t receptive to your come ones and that you just have to keep trying to show her how great of a person you are.
That’s not going to work with a Sagittarius woman. She’s relatively open to chatting with new people, but if she doesn’t want to talk to you, then she doesn’t want to talk to you. Trying to push past resistance will only frustrate her further and earn you negative points with her.
Let’s say you meet a Sagittarius woman and instantly feel a spark, though. The conversation is quick and easy, and you don’t feel like there’s any resistance to you. Don’t rush the relationship faster than she wants it. Sagittarius women like building things slowly and deliberately. If she feels like you’re pushing things faster than they need to go, she might pump the brakes.
You’ll make a terrible impression on a Sagittarius woman if you try to act like a player and be pushy. You’re unlikely to attract a woman like that at all, so just be cool, take things slowly, and try to be magnetic enough to entice a Sagittarius woman to come toward you, not to rope her into doing so.
Show Off Your Sense of Humor
Sagittarius women have a great sense of humor and love showing it off. They love making people laugh and being the “funny friend.” As a result, she likes it when other people can make her laugh too.
If you’re quick with a joke, employ everything that’s in your arsenal. The more you can make her laugh, the better your chances of attracting her. People love a partner who is funny and confident. Show her you’re such a partner, and you’ll be on a date with her in no time.
Don’t Be Boring
“What are you up to?” she asks.
“Nothing. You?” you respond, for the third time in this conversation.
Not only is that response boring, but it’s vague. It doesn’t convey much information, so the Sagittarius woman now has to carry the brunt of the conversation. Though such a text exchange seems minor, it’s a commonplace annoyance that Sagittarius women feel.
Sagittarius women love getting to the heart of things. They’re the ones to dive into the deep, philosophical meanings of a book or movie, and their love of getting deep translates to the people they talk to as well. A Sagittarius woman loves feeling like she’s learning more about people that there’s a new aspect about that person that she didn’t know before.
Relationships naturally deepen the more two people feel comfortable around each other. People just tend to offer up more details about themselves, but if you don’t have much to share, then it’s unlikely that you’ll keep a Sagittarius woman’s interests.
Learn how to text in ways that keep people interested and learning more about you but avoids oversharing. That skill will be especially useful when talking to Sagittarius women.
Ask Her to Do Something Fun and Energetic
Sagittarians are adventurous people at heart. They love traveling to new countries and trying foods they’ve never seen before. There’s also something fun about staycations as well — staying in your home town or city and finding a cool new location you didn’t know about.
A Sagittarius woman loves finding a new concert to go to, play to see or bar to grab a drink. They chafe against routine and want to explore the world they live in. They don’t want to keep going to the same few places just because those locations are in their comfort zone.
If you want to make a great impression on a Sagittarius woman, ask her out on a date to do something unusual but still fun to do, like a concert, go to a carnival, go explore an artist’s open house or something else that’s creative.
While she’ll accept a standard coffee or movie date, you’ll earn extra brownie points if you choose the date paths less traveled. It will make all the difference.
Don’t Expect Emotions Until You’re Close
Remember how we said that Sagittarians are generally emotionally guarded people? Yeah, you won’t be seeing wild emotions from your Sagittarius date for a while. She has to know and trust you before she feels comfortable letting herself cry, for example.
If you’re a sign that expresses their emotions easily like Cancer or Pisces, know that a Sagittarius woman can’t reciprocate that emotional vulnerability quite yet. In fact, she could be quite unnerved when she sees someone express extreme emotions like sadness. She might not know how best to handle the situation or to comfort someone who’s crying.
While Sagittarians are emotional people, they only let the most trusted people in their lives see those feelings. You have to be okay with waiting to see the more vulnerable side of a Sagittarius woman. When you do, though, you’ll know that it’s a sign that she trusts you immensely.
Keep Those Romantic Gestures for Later
Some people like getting flowers and chocolates on the second or third date, but a Sagittarius woman will think it’s contrived. Why spend all that money when you’re not sure the relationship will work out?
Sagittarians are more pragmatic when it comes to love at first, checking if a relationship with someone will work long-term before investing money, time, or emotions in a gesture.
In fact, employing a grand romantic gesture too quickly can actually scare away a Sagittarius woman. It takes a long time before a Sagittarius woman falls in love. If you do make a romantic gesture before her emotions for you have deepened, then the gesture will seem like something that you wanted to do because you wanted to rather than something she would actually enjoy.
If you’re a romantic person, such as a Libra, Pisces, or Leo, then making a grand romantic gesture will fall flat on a Sagittarius woman if you do them too quickly. Wait a little bit until her emotions for you have deepened. Then she’ll really love your thoughtful gestures.
Build the Relationship Slowly
Our final piece of advice is to take things slowly. Don’t rush, and don’t fall too deeply into your emotions. Sagittarians are easy to love, hard to stay in love with. Building a relationship with them takes time and dedication.
You have to be okay with taking longer to build that emotional core before doing the mushy romantic things that people like doing, like buying flowers on a date. Investing that much time means you’re committed to the Sagittarius woman. If you’re lucky, she might commit to you too.
Those are some of the best tips to attract a Sagittarius woman. Don’t hesitate to use them when the time is right.
