You can discover a lot about your dating behaviours through your star sign, whether it’s your worst relationship habits, how hard you find a breakup, or which other sign you’ll have the best sex with. But your star sign could also be inadvertently improving, or hindering, your chances at getting matches on dating apps, as new research has revealed the star sign winning the most romantic pairings. Maybe it’s time to bend the truth on your profile?
According to a study by dating app, happn, the most crushed-on sign and therefore the sign with the most matches throughout 2019 was Pisces. Pisces are the ultimate sentimental romance queens, looking for a soul mate rather than just a casual fling so, really, it’s no surprise they’re at the top.
Coming in second was Aries. If an Aries likes you, you’re gonna know about it, so it makes sense that they’ll be pros when it comes to raking in those matches. In third place was Aquarius, which is surprising as Aquarians aren’t huge fans of relationships, followed by Capricorns, who thrive in strong relationships. Scorpio and Virgo were joint fifth, notoriously the more complicated signs, while Libra came in at number seven.
Towards the bottom of the list, Gemini, Leo and Taurus were all joint number eight, while fun-loving Sagittarius was eleventh (probably because their personalities are too big for people to handle).
Cancer was at the very bottom at number 12, possibly because their intensity can seem intimidating. These people don’t know what they’re missing out on!
To recap, these are the signs in order of most to least matched:
- Scorpio – joint 5th
- Virgo – joint 5th
- Gemini – joint 8th
- Leo – joint 8th
- Taurus – joint 8th
Happn also found that while Pisces is the most-matched sign, Gemini is the most compatible with other star signs. The top four most common matches were found to be Gemini and Capricorn, Gemini and Aries, Gemini and Cancer, plus Gemini and Taurus. Phew. If Geminis are one thing it’s versatile and this basically proves it.
So, there you have it. If your sign wasn’t at the top of the list, don’t worry. After all, it’s quality, not quantity.
