    You may take a more cerebral approach to love and partnerships.

    Yet when you make a commitment to someone it is usually because you’ve reached a meeting of the minds and feel like you have found your intellectual equal. You easily make promises and commitments known and when you feel like you’ve found your ideal match, you don’t hold back.

    Instead, you’ll let them, and everyone else, know. You have no problem articulating your love and devotion. You may promise the world and your intentions are always to keep your commitments.

    Yet you can be swayed by your adaptable and imaginative nature. If you do find your interest is swayed by someone who says all the right things, you may try to find loopholes in your own commitments and you can become flexible with your own boundaries.

    For the most part, though, when you make a commitment, you fully intend to keep it and will take a diplomatic approach to relationship challenges so that you can keep your word.
