These predictions will ensure you have the perfect romantic day.


If your date is an Arian man:

Get ready for a spontaneous and charming knight in shining armour. This day will be perfection personified. He will surprise you, intrigue you, make you blush.

If he has made up his mind, he will probably get serious.

Anything adventurous will make the Arian man happy.

Gift him tickets to a camping trek or opt for carefully selected antique furniture, old clocks, stylish clothes or gadgets and watch that smile spread across his face!

She is passionate, has a sense of humour and makes the most of life.

Elegant, neat and chic, she likes to match her outfit with the perfect footwear.
