My friends really seem to be into astrology and the like in determining their mates. I will admit I have looked these things up AFTER meeting someone special but just out of curiosity.

Does it matter to you at all? Do you look into it if you meet someone special and would that affect your approach?

No, I don't use astrology to meet someone. But I do like astrology and want to learn more about it. It's strange though because every man I've ever been with are either Pieces or Aqurius. I'm a Libra so I can't remember if I'm compatible with them or not.

But I do seem drawn by a certain astrological sign.

I probably won't turn somebody I really like down because of it, but I do believe in it. It's like a 2nd marriage - triumph of hope over experience. I did know my last ex-husband was very incompatible with me astrologically and I married him anyway!

I don't believe in astrology at all. I do check it, but only for entertainment. It's not something i take seriously

Nope. Too cerebral. Just bumping into folks of the opposite sex and striking up a conversation* seems to work just fine for me. Not all successful, but good enough.... statistically. Numerology, astrology is weird, and in fact if the lady starts talking about this crap I cut her loose immediately.

* mind you the conversations can get very deep and intellectual which contributes to the bonding of spirit, but none of this superficial zodiac sign crap

And that's your opinion. Too bad you think it's all crap.

i wouldn't avoid dating someone just because they were the wrong sign. (with the possible exception of...see below). first off astrology is a hell of alot more complicated than women's mags would have you believe. there are many different types of charts, rising signs, houses, etc. etc.

for me personally i have done an in depth chart for myself and was astounded by a number of very specific and very personal things it said that were indeed true. however, and this is pretty funny, for years i thought i was a leo with sagittarius rising. which i was very proud of. both fire signs, high five! then i found my birth certificate and realized i had done the wrong calculation. i was actually a scorpio rising, which was alot less fun but alot more gnarly. it fit me more, even though i wanted to be that happy-go-lucky sag type. it was what i THOUGHT fit. i would love to take some of those typical monthly horoscopes and switch them around and just experiment. i bet ALL of them would fit EVERYONE. you have to go in depth.

that being said, like another on here stated, i always "run somebody up" when i start dating them, out of curiosity and to test out its veracity. its funny because i have always tended to ignore the bad and focus on the good (like everyone does in the beginning of a relationship) and when i go back after and examine, the chart would mention the problems that would eventually just break us up, and i would ignore them. in short, it doesn't matter because i won't believe it anyway

but i will tell you this- i will NOT DATE A CANCER. i have had lifelong problems with cancers. over and over and over again in my life when i butt heads with someone at work or school or in my personal life, i find out they are a cancer. it has happened far too many times to be a coincidence. just watch, i will meet my soul mate and he will be an ever-lovin' cancer.

Tell me about it! I had to resort to Chinese astrology to get some justification! I wonder why they were so wrong, though...
