London, May 2020 - In a world of chaos, we’re all clinging to order. And what better place to look than the universe. As with all corners of the Internet, astrological signs reign supreme on Tinder, where zodiac identifiers consistently rank as a top profile feature.
In order for the flirting to start, there must of course be a match first. If you are aiming for an Aries, Leo, Taurus or Scorpio , you shouldn't have to wait too long, because these zodiac signs lead the way in dating on Tinder in the UK: they're the most active in the app and they give the most likes. The situation is completely different for Cancer, Virgo, Sagittarius or Capricorn lovers. The four quieter star signs are rather hard to catch on Tinder in the UK and are a bit more picky when it comes to compliments. It's no wonder that Capricorn and Sagittarius also have dream team potential - they are most likely to match with each other.
Fact: These star signs are the most active (swipe rate high) - Aries and Scorpio
Fact: If you like the rather mysterious, shy type, you should date these star signs (least amount of pics and info) - Libra and Virgo
Fact: These star signs are the most picky ones (swipe right rate low) Capricorn and Aquarius
Here’s what you need to know about swiping with each signs on Tinder in the UK:
Aries: Even on Tinder, Aries want to look like a boss. They’re more likely to list ‘manager’ as their job. Potential matches be warned: this natural born leader will likely want to lead the way. These confident catches use the emoji most to show they stay cool under pressure. And they know exactly what they want when it comes to dating, with the highest swipe rate. Most likely to match with: Libra, Virgo and Leo.
Taurus: Tauruses similarly are quite bull-ish when it comes to finding love, as the sign which is the fastest to respond to messages (say it with me, e-ffic-ien-cy). What’s there to say, a Taurus is nothing but persistent, so it makes sense that their most listened to Spotify artists is The Weekend because Tinder isn’t just a weekday thing for them. Most likely to match with: Taurus, Libra and Aries.
Gemini: Geminis broadcast their up for anything nature as the sign most likely to include ten photos on their profile. So if you choose to swipe on a Gemini, have your pose ready. These social butterflies are ready to party all night, which may explain why you might find them bartending (most likely to list as their job) or belting out their top Spotify anthem ‘Circles’. Most likely to match with: Sagittarius, Aquarius and Cancer.
Cancer: To catch one of these supportive empaths, sing along to Oasis with them. And if they don’t match with you or reply to your message right away, don’t worry, it’s not you. Cancers are the least active and are among the slowest in responding to messages. Most likely to match with: Aquarius, Capricorn and Sagittarius.
Leo: Leos may be vain, as demonstrated by often including the emoji in their bios, but when it comes to Tinder, they’re definitely at the top of the dating game. They get the most likes….talk about a fire sign. And fittingly, Leos are also the most likely to name their sign in their bio. We blame it on Roxanne - why? Leos are most likely to include Roxanne as their Spotify Anthem in their profile: and just like Roxanne, they do it “for the ‘Gram”. Most likely to match with: Aries, Gemini and Libra.
Virgo: This shy sign is one of the least likely to include ten photos on their profile. If you’re on the prowl for a Virgo, look for them to call out that they are a ‘student’ and show an interest in their hardworking nature. If you’re into dogs, expect Virgos to steer clear, as the sign least likely to include the emoji in their bios. Most likely to match with: Scorpio, Aries and Libra.
Libra: While other signs may look to the stars for love, Libras look to the scales. Pragmatic in life and in love, Libras appreciate balance, logic and authenticity, which is probably why they are the most likely to list Director in their top job roles. They know how to get things done and are keen to get down to business talking to matches, as the sign most likely to only include one photo in their profile. Most likely to match with: Aries, Virgo and Taurus.
Scorpio: These passionate, often-mistaken fire signs can’t even keep themselves straight but you can tap into their determined nature: Scorpios often identify as ‘managers’ or ‘engineers’ in their bio. They show their passion and that they are brave in their swipe: as one of the signs with the highest swipe rate. But then they like to slow things down: they take among the longest to respond to a message. Most likely to match with: Virgo, Aries and Pisces.
Sagittarius: These idealists are not easily impressed, but once you’ve matched, get ready for action. They move quickly from match to first message, showing they aren’t afraid to make the first move. They advertise their adventurous spirit in their profile with the emoji in hopes they’ll catch the attention of someone who can keep up. Most likely to match with Capricorn, Aquarius and Gemini.
Capricorn: Capricorns might be hard to catch on Tinder, as they are the least likely to include their sign in their bio, but if you find one of these profoundly intelligent partners, it’s worth the work. They’re ambitious, frequently touting their determined nature in their bios, with the inclusion of the emoji in their bios, which doesn’t leave them with much time for swiping. They have the fewest swipes (right or left) of any sign. To catch their attention, ask them how much they lift at the gym. Most likely to match with: Sagittarius, Aquarius and Gemini.
Aquarius: Humanitarian activist Aquarians put their call out for a partner with the emoji, seeking peace in the world. And when they’re not protesting, they’re busy being creative, cooking up a storm in the kitchen or attending the latest gallery opening. They’re most likely to call themselves ‘chefs’ or ‘artists’ in their bio. So it’s no wonder Aquarians swipe less often than other signs; another peace-seeking, museum hound combo isn’t exactly easy to find. Most likely to match with: Sagittarius, Capricorn and Gemini.
Pisces: Pisces are all about the feelings - and they like to catch them too, though they may be low key about it. One of their top anthem is “The Box” from Roddy Ricch’s album “Please Excuse Me for Being Anti-Social.” An apt title for the emotional and intuitive Pisces who clearly want people to know they find the world inside their head just as interesting as the one outside. This may be the reason why they are the slowest sign to respond to messages, but you know their response will be thoughtful. Most likely to match with: Aquarius, Cancer and Capricorn.
