If you’ve ever dated a Gemini, you’ve certainly been wined, dined and bedazzled. There’s something undeniably bewitching about this sign. But there’s something undeniably challenging as well…
The Gemini Personality
The Gemini man is a mover and a shaker, constantly flitting about. Gemini is a natural flirt: women are drawn to Gemini, admiring their great intelligence and savvy. Gemini is a social butterfly who enjoys variety and seeks out new experiences. If you’re lucky enough to date a Gemini, your Gemini guy can make you feel as if you’ve been hand-selected to be the girl on his arm.
The Challenges of Dating a Gemini
But a distinct and subtle feeling will always prevail that this man is impossible to pin down. The truth of the matter is that Gemini would most likely arrive late to his own wedding. He’s too busy running errands, catching up with the neighbors, and soaking in the latest technology. Ruled by the planet Mercury, Gemini is all things mercurial.
His Air element keeps him preoccupied with matters of the mind, contemplating everything from Nietzsche to sex. It is nearly impossible for Gemini to focus on one thing for a significant amount of time. One minute he’s alert and attentive, the next minute—he’s not. This doesn’t mean he’s unable to commit, but it will take a special someone with enough stamina to keep his undivided attention.
The Gemini Back Story
Gemini’s fluctuating energy can be attributed to the genesis story of Castor and Pollux, known collectively as Dioscuri in Greek mythology. Castor and Pollux embodied the Gemini twins. They were inseparable and always up to no good. Unfortunately, Pollux was immortal—Castor was not. Once Castor met his mortal death, it would be impossible for them to sustain their close connection.
Zeus’ solution was for both men to share each others’ fate: Half their time would be spent on Mount Olympus with the gods, the other half touring Hades’ Underworld. This helps to explain the dichotomy of Gemini’s ambivalent nature. It further explains why a Gemini man needs a Bonnie to his Clyde.
Building a Strong Relationship with Gemini
Despite his bachelor antics, Gemini truly does require his carbon copy. A female conversationalist, who is just as knowledgeable as he is, is a must—anything less wouldn’t suffice. This doesn’t mean you have to be an academic with a PhD from Harvard University, but beauty alone won’t cut it. A healthy debate is sexual foreplay for Geminis. Establish a mental connection with the intellectual stimulation that Gemini requires, and he will be sure to blow your mind in the sack.
