Your Gemini Man

“What He Wants From a Relationship” excerpted from “The AstroTwins’ Love Zodiac: The Essential Astrology Guide for Women.”
That’s not to say that Gemini men don’t commit for the long haul, because they do. In fact, this man is capable of becoming the most boring, bathrobe-wearing, remote-control-clutching cliché of a husband ever. He may marry just to “get it over with.” Once he’s comfortable, he can stay put. The last thing he wants to do is climb the rickety roller-coaster rails of a new relationship all over again. The emotional blowups, the misunderstandings, the soul baring ugh! He’d rather just put on his favorite sweater and go to the multiplex for the latest action movie, or burrow into a book while you entertain yourself.
Still, turning into Al Bundy is far from the Gemini man’s dream. He just needs relationships with a single key ingredient: space. He must have distance in order to come closer. His inner Twin needs this contrast, to switch the intimacy button on and off. “I need variety; I don’t want to talk to you all the time,” says John, a Gemini IT specialist. As much as he may seek fame or a public career, the Gemini man needs to slip into the shadows at will, retreating into his own anonymous world to recharge.
When he’s not making films, Gemini Johnny Depp lives a private, idyllic life in southern France with his Capricorn partner and children. These polar extremes are essential to his sanity (a term we use loosely with Geminis). The Gemini man thrives in a long-distance relationship for that reason.
To stay interested for the long haul, the Gemini man needs a mate who’s interested in all kinds of stuff and interesting by default. When (and if) things get routine, you need only ask him a smart question or solicit his opinion about something happening in the news. The Gemini man always has an opinion.
