What Is the Gemini Man Like?
Boring and dull are two words you’ll never see associated with these men.
Ruled by the planet Mercury, the planet of communication, Geminis are born with the gift of gab and are some of the best conversation companions. Nobody can tell a riveting story like a Gemini.
That said, it should be known that Geminis are also able to convince others of almost anything with relative ease.
So keep your wits about you! Geminis are pranksters, but they’re just trying to have a good time with you and get you to laugh. They’re some of the funniest people you’ll ever meet.
They are very curious about the people and the world around them. Geminis have a variety of friends from different backgrounds and have an active social life.
When they are not entertaining you, they’re probably reading, writing, building something (Gemini rules the hands and these guys love to work with them) or pondering life’s mysteries with their inquisitive minds.
The Gemini man is friendly and a fun-loving person. He is always down for an adventure and likes to live his life on his own terms, if not fly by the seat of his pants at times.

On the negative side, he can be unreliable.
This is as true of Gemini men in relationships that are quite serious as it is of Gemini men casually dating.
His impulsiveness causes him to change plans so often that it’s hard for him to plan long-term, which can cause issues in a relationship.
He enjoys many things, which is why he’s commonly referred to as a jack of all trades and a master of none. He may lack direction and a clear focus on what he wants in life.
The Gemini man can also be superficial.
His attention span is short. Sometimes this means that he enjoys getting to know and learning about people but may only be interested on a fleeting basis.
Sometimes he can be swayed by what he feels someone has to offer instead of digging deeper to get to know them, which can actually backfire and hurt him and the other person.
Overall, however, the Gemini man is a clever and lively guy who can bring light, laughter and joy into your life.
How Is the Gemini Man in a Relationship?
When dating, he’ll do anything to win your affection and entertain you all day and night.
He’s charming, that is for sure. Be ready for him to ask lots of questions about you. He wants to know how your mind works and is eager to absorb from you a new way of looking at the world.
Though sexual compatibility is important to him, he prefers a mental compatibility with his partner first and foremost.
A Gemini guy wants a woman who will listen to him and can talk for hours.
He gets bored easily, so make sure you have enough topics and fun dates planned to keep him busy.
Gemini Men in Relationships: 7 Dating Tips
1. Form a mental connection straight away
The quickest way to this man’s heart is through the mind.
He is an intellectual who’s always eager to learn something new.
Topics such as politics, science and education are sure to get his mind working. But the odd gossip can make the cut, too!
Share his enthusiasm for conversation. Return his questions with questions of your own.
Find a subject that you feel comfortable getting in-depth about and go ahead and dazzle him.
2. Keep your emotions in check
Some would say the Gemini man lacks deep emotions, but that isn’t true.
He just isn’t one to wear his emotions on his sleeve—he’s actually pretty good at hiding them.
I’m not saying you aren’t allowed to show your feelings, but being too sentimental or overly emotional will scare him away.
He prefers to keep things light most of the time.
When you do get into the heavy stuff, strange as it may sound, throwing in the odd joke can take the pressure off.
As you’ll find out in Gemini Man Secrets, these Mercury natives can be a walking contradiction and require a different sort of approach than you’re probably used to.
You’ll get the hang of it!
3. Give him his space
Geminis love being around people but they also like doing their own thing.
He will enjoy every moment he spends with you, but there will be times when he needs to be alone, even as things are just heating up between you.
Don’t be clingy, as this is a turn off to this air sign who values his freedom.
Be willing to give him his space and soon he’ll be coming back to you.
4. Go on nontraditional dates
Variety is a way of life for a Gemini man. He is always looking to do something new and exciting.
When planning dates, don’t be afraid to switch it up.
Maybe one date you go to the bookstore and the next date you go to the science museum. Next time you may plan a trip to an amusement park to bring out his adventurous side.
Romance isn’t all roses and candlelit dinners!
5. Travel often
Geminis are fond of traveling, so planning weekend getaways with them is ideal.
Even if it’s just to a neighboring state, being somewhere new that they can explore nurtures their naturally curious states of mind.
Wherever he goes, whether it’s an exotic place or one full of history, he will find a way to make it a learning experience.
Feed his curiosity!
6. Be slightly unavailable
Geminis love a good challenge.
That’s how they see it when they need to work to get some of your time.
Maybe you’re free this weekend, but for the next weekend you’ve already made plans with your friends.
Don’t drop everything just to hang out with him. He wouldn’t do that either!
He will not lose interest. If anything, he’ll become more determined to win your undivided attention.
7. Be full of surprises
Never bore a Gemini!
Rarely predictable, he’s going to keep you on your toes. You should do the same for him!
Plan an exciting date but don’t tell him where you’re taking him. Tell him you brought him a great gift and make it a treasure hunt for him.
Dress cute and sporty one day and the next day look like you’ve walked right off a magazine cover.
This adds mystery to the relationship that the Gem just can’t resist.
