Calling all Cowgirls! Get your cowboy boots and your lasso ready, you are about to enter the “corral of love” to catch yourself a Sagittarius man, so brush up on your riding skills, and find a comfortable saddle for the ride of your life.
If you have ever dated the archer, you know he is good at dating, but he’s a little tricky to catch. Sagittarius is symbolized by the Centaur — half horse and half man — which clearly gives him the ability to remain independent and roam the planet like a wild stallion, only slowing down long enough for sexual conquests and many short-term relationships.
Sag Man Traits
The zodiac sign Sagittarius is ruled by the largest planet in our solar system, Jupiter, giving this man a flavor of confidence, optimism, freedom and the need to expand his adventures into greener pastures. He loves to indulge in an abundance of adventure, travel, and as many women as possible. His positive attitude and sexy smile are infectious, and can become an instant addiction for the unsuspecting female. The Sagittarius man is a physical creature, and will put 100% of his energy into pleasing a woman in a relationship, using his imagination to make it a wild and tantalizing destination for her.
The Sagittarius man is turned on by an athletic, sexually open-minded woman who has her own friends and isn’t available at his beck and call. He loves a woman who is adventurous, impulsive, and as direct as possible — especially when it comes to sex, since this man thinks of sex as a sporting event. Repetition bores him, so keep him on his toes by keeping him guessing.
Seducing a Sagittarius Man
If a Sag man is attracted to you, he will let you know right away — by being blunt with whatever words he can spit out of his mouth. Unfortunately, his mouth is not connected to the part of the brain which controls tact. Instead, his thoughts go straight to his mouth without anything stopping him — except his foot, after it’s too late. A fun-filled date with a Sag man is the way to capture his heart, and a few activities he is sure to enjoy are: paintball, gambling, sky diving or horseback riding, since his fantasy is to be a rough and tough cowboy. Once you agree on having an adventurous date with a fun-loving Sag man, you are on your way to seducing him into your side of the horse stable for a roll in the hay. Just don’t mention commitment anytime to soon, or he will run for the hills.
Getting Your Sag Man to Commit
Here’s the deal with Sagittarius men — after he has you thinking you’ve finally met the man of your dreams, you literally could end up waiting a lifetime for this guy to actually commit to a long-term relationship. The dilemma for the single female who spots him and wants to lure him into her pasture for the long haul is: How do I get him to commit? This is where your lasso techniques are really helpful. An idealist who sees the silver lining in any situation, the Sagittarius man will take a chance on love, and dive right into romance with reckless abandon. However, he has a keen sense of when to sprint like a bolt of lightning when the words commitment or marriage is mentioned. If you want your Sag man to commit, you will have to deal with his freedom-loving behavior, his wild streak for adventure, and his philosophical, deep discussions about the meaning of life. Your ability to develop patience is necessary. Give him adequate time to understand your goal for a future together. One way to achieve this level of self-discipline is to consider practicing meditation and advanced yoga. These mindfulness and relaxation techniques can help you keep your sanity while hanging with the jovial Jupiter boy.
Here are a few pointers for getting your Sag man to commit:
Love Yourself First
Figure out who you are and what you need in order to have a rewarding long-term relationship. Once you’ve developed your own activities and interests in life, you’ll ooze an air of sexy confidence, which is irresistible to the Sagittarius man. When you find a Sag who rocks your world, you won’t scare him off by being clinging or blaming him for not making you happy. You are the only person who is responsible for making yourself happy. Your confident and independent attitude will help him realize that you are strong enough to leave if you aren’t satisfied with his level of commitment.
Set the Dating Rules Groundwork
When you are casually dating a Sag man, you have to set the dating standards from the beginning. Luckily, Sag loves honesty and cutting to the chase, so laying the groundwork upfront through communicating to him should be a cinch. By explaining what you want out of the relationship, you are letting him know you are not going to casually date forever. The Centaur will realize that you aren’t going to waste your time dating someone who isn’t serious or who wants to keep dating other women. He will listen to your needs if you don’t whine or ignore what he has to say about his needs in the relationship.
Understanding His Needs
It is important to the Sagittarius man that you understand his needs in a long-term relationship vs. a casual dating situation. Being a good listener shows you can understand his point of view. If your goal is to make him happy in a long-term committed relationship, you have to be open to what life has to offer. In other words, come out of your comfort zone and make life an adventure. Spontaneity is the key word for getting this fire sign to commit to you, which means you want to always make time for getaways, show interest and challenge his mind with deep conversations, and be experimental when it comes to pleasing him in the bedroom.
If you remain his best friend, show him that you trust him by willingly giving him a little freedom to do his own thing, and of course maintain the patience of a saint, your Sag man will always return home. When he does finally fall in love and commit, the Sagittarius guy believes in the idea of life-long soul mates exploring the universe together, which makes this fire sign worth waiting for — even if it does take a lifetime of adventure to keep him permanently grounded in your world.
