Do: Aries love going on adventurous and meaningful dates. On your first date, taking them to an amusement park, bowling alley, hiking, or doing their favorite activity will win their heart. Also, respect their opinions.
Don't: Don't interrupt them while they are talking. Let them complete their sentences before offering comments or initiating your part of the story.
Do: Be straightforward and trustworthy in your conversation with a Taurus. Amplify your feminine/masculine energy to impress them more. If you're a man, make efforts to look dapper. If you're a woman, take some time to look good for the Taurus man.
Don't: For them, confidence is crucial. Don't turn up like a nobody with low self-esteem.
