Do Sagittarius Fall in Love Quickly?

Under the right set of circumstances and with the right person, Sagittarius can fall in love quite quickly. However, commitment-phobic Sag may be quick to fall in love but much slower to commit to marriage.

Sagittarius Man Characteristics

The Sagittarius man is witty, smart, and flirty. He has a powerful sense of adventure, and his sense of humor and playful nature make him fun to be around, but he also has a philosophical side. Sagittarian men in relationships may be commitment-phobic, but that doesn't mean you can't win the heart of a male Sagittarius. In love relationships, the Sagittarius man seeks a partner who matches his zest for adventure, has a keen mind, and who doesn't play games. Fortunately, it's fairly easy to recognize when a Sagittarius man is interested in you.

Sagittarius Woman Characteristics

The Sagittarius woman is cheerfully independent and extremely blunt. She is a romantic idealist who falls in love quickly, and the Sagittarius woman will show you she loves you through her flirtation and self-expression. In a romantic partner, Sagittarian women seek adventurous, outdoorsy men who share her love of travel and exploring different cultures.

Sagittarius Constellation

The constellation Sagittarius consists of a large cluster of stars, and the brightest stars form the shape of a teapot in the sky. And while it forms the shape of a teapot, Ancient astronomers felt it formed the shape of a centaur shooting an arrow, which is why Sagittarius is known as "the archer."
