In many ways, isn’t dating just one big game? ‘Play it cool. Keep it together. Don’t let them know you like them.’ I mean, look at how dating apps have evolved. Swipe left if it’s a no, and swipe right if it’s a yes. Gone are the days when you have to review an entire breakdown of someone’s profile to decide if your similarities are enough to outweigh the differences. Now you can just play profiles like they’re a game on your phone. So let’s expand this theory.
Ping-pong, pool, bowling… What do they have in common? Each of these games requires a different level of prowess and focus. Let’s pretend that each astrological sign is one of these games. Ping-pong is unpredictable–just like some signs can be chaotic. Pool involves geometry–some signs can be analytical. Bowling takes power–certain zodiac signs are a force to be reckoned with.
So why did I break it down into these three categories? One stands out from the rest. Someone who plays pool will understand the aim required for bowling, and vice versa… but the chaos and unpredictability of ping-pong requires a different skill set level, one that not everyone will grasp. And that’s where Aries and Gemini come in.
Aries, you are impulsive and restless, the bouncing ball that lands on one side of the table one day and bounces off the paddle across from you the next. Nothing is predictable with you. You’re passionate, driven by the intensity of a force that knows no boundaries–no lanes or holes for you. Like ping-pong, you tap dance around the table of life, finding any opportunity you can to pique your interest.
You’re impatient, eager to win.
If your opponent scores, you’ll express your frustration openly and loudly, but as soon as the next round starts, you’ve already forgiven and forgotten, resetting yourself for the thrill of your next high.
When it comes to you, Gemini, ping-pong is most definitely your game. Structure and schedule is a poisonous venom, one you sprint away from. Unpredictability is the name of your game, unless it comes to life, one day, you’re winning on the left side of the table, and one day you’re losing on the right.
Your symbol, the twins, is representative of your ever-changing personality.
One side of you is a social butterfly, gossiping and bonding with everyone you meet, yet with the flip of a dime, everything can change. You’re naturally extroverted, so it’s not like you’ll suddenly become introverted. If anything, it’s your mood that will bounce, but only when someone wrongs you or someone you love. You stand up for justice and speak your mind.
Aries and Gemini in Friendship
Aries, your chaos is an aspect of your personality that many signs can’t relate to; in fact, it’s that intense energy of yours that repels most other signs before they ever get a chance to know you. But Gemini is not one of those signs. Gemini flocks to your energy, Aries, because they carry that same love of unpredictability. You share a boldness in speaking your mind, especially with disrespect, you both will stand up for your convictions, but your mutual lack of thinking before you act can stir trouble wherever the two of you go.
Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?
Like ping-pong, the two of you are a bouncing ball of energy wherever you go. Aries is the more impulsive of the two signs, but Gemini, who detests schedules of any sort, will flock for an opportunity to experience new adventures. Gemini is the more social of the two of you, able to bond and click with complete strangers wherever you guys go. This will only benefit your adventures, however, as Aries’ abrasive bluntness can sometimes turn people off, but with Gemini’s bubbliness guiding the way, the two of you will be the first on the rollercoaster at the fair, hitchhiking across the city, or dancing your way to the front of a concert. Because neither of you considers the consequences of your actions, you may find yourself making mistakes along the way, but Aries’ forgive-and-forget attitude and Gemini’s enjoyment of surprise have the potential to make you two partners in crime for life.
Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’
This is where the two of you differ. Aries, deep conversation is not your forte. You’ll express yourself when you need to, always blunt and to the point, without care for how others perceive you. Gemini, you are ruled by Mercury, making conversation a core theme of yours in life. Fortunately, you can talk to anyone and satisfy this need of yours. If Aries does anything to bother you, Gemini, you won’t hesitate to approach them with the same bluntness they will give you, and that builds a level of respect between the two of you, especially early in your friendship. If anything, Gemini, you’ll draw the conversation out of Aries and Aries will discover a side of them with you that they didn’t know they had.
Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?
Gemini, your interest in diving deep into people’s personalities will mean that you will learn everything there is to know about someone on a date–not beforehand, but typically when you’re with them. Aries, on the other hand, you’re more impulsive that Aries in this sense and don’t have the patience to get to know the depth of someone’s personality until you decide you like them. Either way, in your friendship, the chaos of your combined energy means that anyone who wrongs you two better beware. You are incredibly loyal friends to each other, and you will always have each other’s back.
Aries and Gemini in Love
It wouldn’t be surprising if you two started as friends. As a couple, you’ll find that the similarities in love are only heightened and that the chaos that leads to your friendship is exaggerated with love. Even if you never started as friends, you’ll find ease with one another. Not because you two are calm by any means. If anything, an outsider would perceive the two of you as a ball of intensity, sometimes too strong to be around, but when it’s just the two of you, it’s like looking in a mirror. You’re both energetic, passionate, and spontaneous, with similarities that create a healthy foundation for a romantic relationship between the two of you.
The First Date: Roses or KFC?
Aries, you crave a date–and a relationship–with someone you could see as a friend. Regardless of whether you shared a friendship before this, Aries needs spontaneity and adventures in their life and will often test this on a first date. Gemini will have no problem going with the flow. If anything, Gemini’s twin personalities mean they’re constantly changing their mind. They need stimulation and interest, the lure of something new, and that’s where Aries comes in, offering Gemini thrills, while still granting them space to express themselves.
Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?
This is where your differences can set in. Aries is more keen to show their affection, while Gemini expresses it with words. As friends, it’s not too much of an issue that Gemini is the talker. But in love, Gemini will double down on their need to express themselves, especially if Aries pisses them off. And there is a chance that can happen. While you both enjoy freedom, Aries can be a bit more possessive, which can lead to issues when Gemini needs to express their need for space. Aries, you have a tendency to shut down when confronted with in-depth conversation, but as long as you can put aside your ego, Aries, of all the signs, Gemini can teach you how to open up probably more than any other.
Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?
Gemini’s dual personalities often come out most in the bedroom. You’re full of ideas and often have a secret side to your personality that only your lovers will see. Aries’ with your fiery libido, you’ll flock to Gemini’s playful nature and the emotional and mental attraction the two of you have will unfold naturally under the sheets.
Gemini, as an air sign, you feed oxygen to Arie’s fire. As long as Aries’ can accept Gemini’s love of chatter, and Gemini can accept Aries’ occasional stubbornness, the two of you have the potential for a long-lasting friendship and love affair.

What if I Love This Person?
As friends and lovers, your similarities will outweigh your differences. The two of you may be a tornado to others, but the bouncing ball of your chaos is exactly what the two of you need for long-lasting happiness.
