When you register on a dating app, you may be asked, “What are you searching for?” while creating your profile. Some of the options you may get are marriage, a relationship, something informal, or I haven’t decided yet.

A user searching for a fling will most likely avoid matching with someone hoping for a long-term relationship, and a user looking for marriage should not anticipate the same from someone who isn’t sure of what they want.

Well, each zodiac has a preference when it comes to the kind of romantic relationship they want. So, keep reading to find out how the 12 zodiac signs rank in terms of preferences—marriage, dating and fling.


aries zodiac sign

Aries people are known for their independence and the ability to do what they want, when they want, and how they want, which isn’t always attainable in a marriage. However, they also want someone who adores them (and thinks everyone else is a jerk), thus dating might be the most plausible option for them.


taurus zodiac sign

Taurus is a practical sign that likes to do what is expected of them and, as a result, is highly traditional in most aspects of life. Taureans prefer to get married in their early 20s because that is what they consider “normal.” They cannot fathom having a relationship with no long-lasting ties.


gemini zodiac sign

Childlike Gemini is prone to jumping into a marriage too soon, possibly without even getting to know someone well. They believe in fairytales and happy-ever-afters and go into a relationship with the same hope. However, because this sign is so fickle, there’s a significant probability that any marriage they rush into will fail.


cancer zodiac sign

Cancer is a secret homebody who doesn’t waste time with companions they can’t bring home to Momma. They look for someone who they can marry as soon as possible. They want the protection and security that marriage provides, as well as many children and/or pets.


leo zodiac sign

Leos, whether male or female, require a fortress to protect themselves from intruders, which is why they make excellent spouses. Leos don’t settle down easily, whether it’s because they crave attention or because they’re flirty. Hence, the lion sign will probably tick the ‘looking to date’ box.


virgo zodiac sign

Virgos are perfectionists who are constantly striving to improve themselves, others and everything else. They’ll often delude themselves into believing that once everything is settled, they’ll marry, but since nothing ever appears to be good enough for them, marriage is always put on hold and they’ll continue to date.


libra zodiac sign

Libra is the astrological sign that represents marriage in the karmic cycle of life. They want partnership in all aspects of life. They make ideal spouses and remain romantic and appealing even after years together. This sign, with its heart in its eyes, will opt for forever over going to multiple first dates.


scorpio zodiac sign

A Scorpio is skilled at scouting possible companions and putting them to the test early on so that flaws can be identified quickly. All of this is to test if someone is capable of lasting a lifetime. They plan to marry someday, but they prefer to stick to dating first.


sagittarius zodiac sign

Sagittarians are known for being wanderers, and as the adage goes, “a rolling stone gathers no moss.” They are prone to wanderlust, which can be problematic if they’re tied down in the bonds of matrimony; hence they prefer dating and may even indulge in a fling or two.


capricorn zodiac sign

Capricorns aren’t born with the desire to marry. They’d rather have a successful career, lots of money, or a high social status. Nothing satisfies them more than social recognition and money gains. They want to be loved without the complications of marriage. Hence, they’re most likely to date somebody exclusively.


aquarius zodiac sign

Aquarians make excellent friends, but their desire for independence, mixed with their aversion to emotional connection, prevents them from marrying. They’re more in tune with the demands of the world, which makes it difficult for them to focus on just one person and hence, they opt for flings.


pisces zodiac sign

Pisces is a romantic and imaginative sign. The water sign isn’t sure where they stand and frequently misinterprets others’ wants as their own. They are aware of this shortcoming, which makes them wary of marriage and encourages them to pursue flings.

Not everyone indeed seeks marriage. Some people can’t imagine themselves walking down the aisle towards the love of their lives. And that’s perfectly acceptable, as we all have different desires, needs, and personalities.

Some people want to travel, focus on their professions, or are comfortable with their relationships without a piece of paper formalising it. Some may not be thinking about dating at all, preferring to concentrate on their friendships.

Certain characteristics, as shown by the zodiac signs, can lead to some people being more willing to commit than others. Did we get your zodiac right? Let us know in the comments below.
