There are just a few basics that need to be explored when you first start dating someone. Where is he from? What does he do for a living? Oh, and most definitely, when's his birthday? This isn't just for remembering when to send that "happy b-day :)" text! Knowing a potential boo's zodiac sign can really help in understanding his behaviour. Astrology helps us break down personality traits, pet peeves, and, yes, even dating patterns. It can be fun and informative to look up his sign and see how yours works with his.
If you're dating, Insta stalking (hi, guilty), or just fantasizing over a Sagittarius man, we're here to help you navigate this passionate fire sign. These adventurous archers are optimistic and outspoken and famously love their freedom. Here's what you've gotta know about them.
Are you crushing on a Sagittarius?
Luckily, astrology allows us to decipher personality traits, pet peeves, and so much more. And trust me when I say there is sooo much more to a Sagittarius man than you initially realized. You think they're all fun and adventurous, and they are, but they're so much more than that, too.
So if your guy was born between November 22 and December 21, you're in for a treat. Sagittarians make life (and sex) feel incredible, but as it goes with any sign, there are some things you may want to keep an eye out for.

A SAGITTARIUS MAN'S BEST TRAITS
"Sagittarius" is basically synonymous with "adventurous" at this point, and while there's a lot more to a Sag than that, it's also true! Your Sagittarius lover will suggest tons of day trips and long weekends away, and trust, he'll have plenty of ideas for how to use your PTO. And Sagittarius isn't just physically adventurous, but mentally as well. He's well-read, deeply curious, and always up for trying something new...including in the bedroom.
A SAGITTARIUS MAN'S WORST TRAITS
No other zodiac sign puts their foot in their mouth like Sagittarius. It's not that these archers are ill-intentioned, they just tend to speak before they really think things through, and they lack a little tact. If you're on the sensitive side, it's easy to get your feelings hurt by a Sagittarius. This sign is also stereotyped as noncommittal, and while that's not completely true Sags will commit to someone or something they think is really worth it this sign prefers to be spontaneous rather than plan dates and life milestones in advance.
BEST MATCHES FOR A SAGITTARIUS MAN
When it comes to this sign, another Sagittarius is the best choice for a partner! You are both unapologetically up-front and can dish out the tea as well as you can take it from others, so arguments are quick and then forgotten about. Another great match for Sagittarius is Aquarius. Both of you have unique perspectives on the world that are completely your own, which you both love to have friendly debates over.
Sagittarius also vibes with fellow fire signs Aries and Leo. You're all so outspoken and passionate that you just get along...until you don.t. Luckily, if you fight, you make up easily, and LBR, you love a little bit of ~drama~. Finally, Gemini gives Sagittarius an opposites-attract situation. (Literally, they're opposites on the zodiac.) They're both super smart and super curious, and sparks just fly!
WORST MATCHES FOR A SAGITTARIUS MAN
Sagittarius might struggle to get along with Virgo. Sag is so adventurous that Virgo thinks he's reckless, while Sag gets annoyed with Virgo's tendency to hyper-focus on the details. Pisces also presents some challenges. This water sign wants to be super-close both physically and emotionally, while Sagittarius loves their freedom and impulsive solo getaways.
That said, having incompatible Sun signs doesn't mean your relationship is doomed it just means you might have to put in a little work to really ~get~ each other. And compatibility is about so much more than your Sun sign anyway, so if your Moon signs or another part of your birth charts mesh well, you might be an astrologically blessed match anyway.
But even if your birth chart is Virgo all the way down, if you make an effort to understand your Sagittarius boo and vice versa you can have a great relationship too. And TBH, ~astrological tension~ can also lead to ~sexual tension~, so there's something to be said for "incompatibility"!
SEX WITH A SAGITTARIUS MAN
Sagittarius was voted most likely to join the mile-high club. These travel-loving, spontaneous Sags are ready to go whenever, wherever. They also just miiight have a bit of an exhibitionist streak. They love sex in public. Or semi public. Or outdoors. Or at least, they don't mind if the neighbors hear. For Sagittariuses, the ideal sex session is fun, hot, and playful slow, emotional bonding just isn't their thing.
Sags love variety, so they're almost always down to try a new sex position, kink, or toy. They're not afraid to make a suggestion or make the first move, but they love it when you take initiative and are direct about what you want.
