We all have our different desires as to what we look for in a partner. What they can offer us is a certain fulfillment in our lives where there was a void before. When we are with someone we know is not right for us, it is like they are missing something and there is someone else out there who has that certain X factor. Fire signs crave people who are outgoing and fun to be around. Air signs tend to look for intellectual stimulation and someone who matches their mindset. Earth signs need someone to match their living environments and who is willing to make them more comfortable. Water signs seek emotional connections or someone who gives them a feeling that they have never felt before.
In each sign, men and women have different needs. Even though you can have two people born under the same sign, their genders will put them in a position to need something different in their intimate relationships. Each person has their own idea of what fulfills their lives and their significant others can compliment them or cancel those characteristics out. Here is a list of what each sign needs in an intimate relationship according to their gender.
