This Is How You Date A Pisces


You start out slow. You ask her out to coffee because you know, deep down, that she might not say yes to anything more. You pick her up on time — even though she’s running a little late and tells you she’ll be out in a few minutes — and drive her to your favorite coffee shop. Yours because she’ll probably make you choose. Pisces girls aren’t always known for their decisiveness, even when it comes to the littlest things. If you’re happy, so is she.

You start out with small talk and are surprised how quickly the subject changes. Pisces aren’t the kind of people who like talking about the weather. She’s so open about everything that it might take you aback. She asks you about your job, your friends, your family, your hobbies. She meets the punchline of your jokes with her own witty retorts you can’t help but smile at. Before you know it, hours have passed and she tells you it’s time for her to leave. You wish she didn’t have to.

She doesn’t text you first, even if she can’t stop thinking about you. She waits for you to make the first move. It’s not because she likes playing mind games but because she’s been hurt before and she wants to be sure — this is the kind of girl who falls in and out of infatuation at the drop of a pin. She needs to know that this time, she’s not in it alone before she gets too deep. And so she waits for your “hey” before she gives you her own, and before long you’re exchanging inside jokes and witty banter. Somewhere, she’s on the other side of the line smiling to herself.

And so you’ ask her out again, but this time for dinner, something new she hasn’t tried before at a cute little venue you already know she’ll love because she adores finding hidden gems. This time you skip over all that small talk completely, because it seems silly to backtrack after you already opened up on the first date. Besides, she always seems interested in what you have to say. You like to listen to her crazy ideas, too — she’s imaginative in ways you’re not used to people being. You’ll find yourself laughing nonstop half the evening and talking intently for the rest. You’re not sure why, but she manages to get you to say things you’ve never admitted to people before. It’s kind of scary, but you think you like it.

And so you take her home at the end of the night and maybe you kiss her at her doorstep or maybe you don’t, because she may be a romantic but she likes to take things slow. If you do kiss her, you’ll notice something careful about the way she moves against you, like she’s afraid one wrong move might shatter everything. A Pisces girl knows what it’s like to watch everything break right in front of her very eyes.

She waits for you to text her first again, and you do, because there’s something about this girl that always makes your mind wander back to her. You stay up all night messaging and she sends you pictures that remind her of you while you’re at work; she loves the ones that you send her during your lunch break, too.

And then it’s your next date, and this time when you meet up it’ll feel like you’ve met her more than twice. In fact, it almost feels like you’ve known her forever. And you already know she likes you by the way that she looks at you, like you’re the only person in the room, and by the way she laughs at your jokes, as if her whole body is lighting up. And if you get past this date and she says she’ll see you again, you’ll know you’ve finally got her. You just will.

The next time you talk to her, she texts you first. And that’s how you date a Pisces.
