Have you ever wondered why Gemini men seem to be so perfect one second and then morph into someone completely different the next? Gemini is the sign of the twins, and let me tell you, it’s true that many Gemini men have two completely different sides to their personality. A relationship with a Gemini might not be easy, and at times you could feel like you’re battling your way through it, but one thing it will never be is boring!
1. You’re Dating Two Men
If you’re the kind of person who struggles with commitment, a Gemini man could be your dream date. You’ll never be bored as it feels like you’re dating two men! Seriously, ladies, one day you’ll wake up to one boyfriend, and the next day he will be somebody completely different. My man’s other side even has his own name, so we joke about which personality I’m getting to spend time with today. Gemini men will always keep you on your toes.
2. They’re Unpredictable
If your idea of a good time is planning every little thing down to what you’re going to wear tomorrow, then Gemini isn’t the star sign for you. Many Geminis hate to make plans, never know what they’ll be doing from one second to the next and have unpredictable mood swings. Now, I don’t mean to generalize, but this seems to be the case with quite a few Gemini guys. One thing’s for sure, life will never be dull!
3. They Can Be Flaky
Unpredictability is all very well, but what if your guy doesn’t show up when he says he will, cancels plans at the last minute or has mood changes that rival even your worst moments of PMT? It’s a sad fact that many Gemini men can be a bit flaky, and this seems to be a trait which can also affect Gemini women. Turning up late for a date, changing plans you had to go to the movies or double-booking himself for a night out could be common occurrences if you’re dating a Gemini guy.
4. They’ll Surprise You
I’m making it sound as if Gemini men don’t have any positive characteristics, and nothing could be further from the truth! In fact, many Geminis are really in touch with their inner child, which means they’re constantly changing and evolving in the way they do things and how they look at the world. Three years on and my Gemini man never fails to surprise me, whether it’s making unexpected plans to do something together, or just revealing a hobby he’s into that I didn’t know about. Expect the unexpected when it comes to Gemini and you’ll rarely be disappointed!
5. They’ll Help You out
Gemini men can be argumentative, stubborn and difficult to deal with, but many of them will go out of their way to help a friend, family member or girlfriend in need. From running you to the grocery store to pick up essentials to putting together furniture for you, no task is too big or too small for the Gemini guy. Whilst it’s lovely to have your man doing things for you, don’t take advantage of his good nature, and always make sure you return the favor, showing him how much you notice and appreciate the little things that he does for you.
6. They’ll Make You Laugh
As I mentioned earlier, many Geminis are in touch with their inner child, and this means they often have a wicked sense of humor. If you’re at risk of taking life too seriously, a Gemini man will lift you out of your black mood and give you a good giggle. His sharp sense of humor and intelligent wit puts a smile on your face even when everything else in life is going wrong. Every woman deserves a man who can make her laugh, and you’ll always look forward to spending time with your Gemini, even when he’s driving you crazy! Which brings me nicely to my final point…
7. They Will Drive You Crazy
The Gemini man will undoubtedly drive you crazy, over and over again, particularly if you happen to be a moody Cancerian like me! Sometimes, he will make you want to scream, but other times, he’ll be the sweetest person in the world, and it’s this constant change of balance that keeps life with a Gemini so interesting. If you’re the kind of woman that needs stability, security and to know exactly what you’re going to get out of life each day, then run, don’t walk away from a relationship with a Gemini! But, if you like to be kept on your toes and have a bit of unpredictability in your life, then a Gemini man could be perfect for you!
8. They're Flighty
Gemini love to go on adventures, so don't expect them to stick in one place for too long. They get bored by sticking to the same routine, so they'll crave trips where they get to shake things up by seeing the world and meeting new people. Of course, if your Gemini likes you enough, you'll be invited along with him.
9. They're Great at Giving Advice
Gemini are incredibly helpful when it comes to giving advice. So the next time you have a problem that needs solving, don't hesitate to ask your Gemini man about it. He'll know exactly what to say, so he should be able to reduce whatever stress you're suffering from.
10. They Love to Talk
If you love hearing the latest gossip, make friends with a Gemini. He'll love to go on and on about all of the things he's heard. You'll be lucky if you can get a word in, because talking is one of his favorite activities. If you want to be close to a Gemini, make sure you work on your listening skills, because you'll have a lot to take in.
11. They Need Alone Time
Even though Gemini are social butterflies, they still like to have their alone time. They won't want to spend every single second with you, because they need some time to themselves. It doesn't mean that they don't care about you. It's just a way for them to relax.
12. They Become Distracted Easily
A gemini isn't the person you want to be stuck doing a group project with at school. Why? Because they tend to jump from project to project without finishing the first one that they started. They get distracted easily, so they're always working on something new and forgetting about the last thing they started.
13. They're Manipulators
Gemini make great salesmen, because they're able to come up with quick responses to any comment. However, they can use their talents to trick you. It's easy to be deceived by a Gemini, because they're great manipulators. They always know what to say and when to say it.
14. They Hide Their Emotions
If you don't know a Gemini very well, you'd assume that they're the happiest person on the planet. That's because Gemini rarely open up to anyone except their closest friends and family members. So if a Gemini has told you some dark secrets, it's a sign that they truly value you as a friend.
15. They're Very Nosey
Gemini are very curious creatures. Sometimes this benefits them, because they're always willing to learn new things about the world. However, it can be an issue when a Gemini tries to find out everything they can about your personal life. It's not their fault that they're nosey, so don't get too annoyed at them when they snoop through your stuff.
16. They're Seductive
Gemini men are extremely talented when it comes to seducing women. They know what to say in order to get a girl into bed, so pay close attention to his actions to see if he's lying or is genuinely interested in you. It's easy to be fooled by his charming appearance, but he can be a real snake.
17. They Prefer You to Be Blunt
A gemini always wants you to tell him your feelings bluntly. He doesn't want you to skirt around an issue, because it's too dull. He'd rather hear you say exactly what you're feeling, when you're feeling it. So don't be shy and speak your mind.
18. They Enjoy Massages
A gemini's hands and arms are very sensitive, so use that knowledge to your advantage if you want to seduce him. All you have to do is run your hand down his arm or give him a massage. He'll be putty in your hands.
19. They Crave Adventure
You can't be timid if you want to date a Gemini man. You need to be adventurous, because he's going to want to shake things up whenever he can. If you're always willing to try new things, he'll appreciate having you around. Plus, you'll end up having tons of fun on all your different adventures.
Gemini men will make you laugh, make you cry and sometimes make you feel as if the world is ending. Then they’ll pick you back up and make you feel like you’re on top of the world again – and all this in the space of a week (or maybe that’s just me). So tell me girls, what’s your experience with Gemini guys?
