If you are crushing on an Earth sign and you want to help them like you back, there are some little things you can do to make that happen. As astrologer and writer, Joanna Madeline Moore, tells Bustle, "Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) are tactile, sensual, nature-loving signs that crave security, stability and comfort." So the way to an Earth sign's heart is going to be a lot different than other zodiac signs.

According to Moore, Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) like being pursued with plenty of passion and drama. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) like to be intellectually stimulated, so they're definitely the talkers and texters of the bunch. Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) are all about emotions and romance.

Earth signs are really grounded in their approach to love. When one is crushing on you, they'll take it slow. They'll want to get to know you before taking things to the next level. But once they're all-in, they're all-in for good. So it's no surprise that they'd want the same for you.

When it comes to winning an Earth sign over, it's all about simplicity. So here are some things you can do to get an Earth sign to fall for you.


Follow Through On Your Word

Earth signs love routine and structure. "The more grounded and stable you are, the more attractive you become," astrologer Deniz Kilic, tells Bustle. This is especially true for Capricorns. The way to their heart is having a good head on your shoulders and a devotion to your career. If you can show an earth sign that you can offer them the stability they crave, they will likely be all in.


Be Respectful Of Their Time

Earth signs are extremely efficient with their time and energy. So wasting their time is a definite no-no. According to Kilic, it's sure to get you on their bad side. "Show them that you're dependable and that they can rely on you," she says. "This is the way into their hearts."


Cook Them A Meal

The way to a Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn's heart is through their stomach. While they all have their little differences, their love of good food is one thing they all have in common. "They tend to love a good meal, especially if it's served to them," astrologer Dr. Elisa Robyn, tells Bustle. "While many love to cook, there's luxury in being served."


Get To Know Their Friends

Earth signs love to be surrounded by good friends and love being in familiar places. "This can be home, but also a bar or restaurant where they're greeted by name," Dr. Robyn says. It makes them feel safe, secure, and comfortable. So if you want to win an Earth sign over, familiarize yourself with the people, places, and things that bring them comfort. They'll melt at the very fact that you made the effort to do so.


Be Affectionate

Earth signs are all about touch and physical pleasure. "They tend to have a sensual side and love to hug," Dr. Robyn says. So stay close to them when you're together. Hold their hand, give them a quick kiss on the cheek, or place a hand on their arm, when you're having a conversation. They'll definitely take notice.


Be Authentic

"Don't try to play games with these folks," astrologer Molly Cardinal, tells Bustle. "Their earthy quality means that they relate best to someone who's tangible and authentic with them. They won't appreciate the runaround." They're very open and receptive in nature, so there's no point in trying to hide who you are. They will see through it. They're not into guessing games either. According to Cardinal, they'll really appreciate you if you clearly express your feelings.

Overall, Earth signs make great partners because they're stable, grounded, and value security. These are the kind of traits you want in a long-term relationship. When it comes to dating, they also like to keep it simple and drama-free. So if you're going after an Earth sign, be sure to keep these things in mind.
