Social Butterfly: A Gemini’s social calendar is unmatched. They love connecting with people and always have an interesting remark, opinion, or story to add to any conversation.

For some signs, that means going it alone, but Gemini just prefers to be able to go where the mood takes them (with you—Geminis still need company!). This sign lives in the moment like no other. As much as they hate following plans, they also hate making them. After all, they have the confidence to know that they can handle whatever life throws at them. Thus, their most successful relationships and friendships are with signs that can handle this nonstop adventure with them.

Youthful: Gemini is the first air sign of the zodiac and as such, carries a youthful energy that gives them a rich sense of vitality. Being curious, optimistic, energetic, Geminis embody ass the things we associate with youth as well.

At the end of the day, they are kids at heart who love to explore, play, and never stop learning.
