In relationships, we all have needs. Whatever these needs are, if our partners manage to meet them, relationships remain strong. But if you don’t know what your partner needs from you, then it’s a good idea to take a look at their dominant personalities. Are they independent but secretly sensitive? Or are they shy when it comes to asking for what they want in your relationship?
Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus may be stubborn, but they’re also incredibly sensitive. As for their partner, they should be gentle and sensitive when it comes to their Taurus lover’s feelings, because if they’re not Taurus tend to hold grudges and it will take a long time for them to forgive.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
As the most sensitive of the signs, Pisces crave attention and intimacy. They need someone to show them love, and care and comfort them when they cry. For partners of a Pisces, open displays of affection and sweet nothings whispered in their ear are all a Pisces needs. /Caithlin Pena
