Fun loving, independent and exciting, Sagittarius men are in some ways the wild child of the zodiac. Adventurous sociable and friendly, they are typically determined to live life to the fullest, amongst other things often making them physical and athletic.
This is an honest man, a straight shooter who speaks his mind. Inspiring and spontaneous he can sometimes be seen as too aggressive or impatient by those who prefer a more subtle approach to life.
He values independence and freedom, manifested both in a liberal open mindedness and a dislike of feeling trapped or obligated. He often does better with a strong willed and independent partner, rather than one who is too needy or possessive.
Just do it
Imaginative and intuitive he may often be seen as lucky, and may even have a fondness for gambling due to this. One of the most 'unusual' traits of Sagittarians for many partners is their ability to get through life so 'effortlessly' often relying on luck rather than planning to see them through.
If you lined up 12 people at the top of a cliff, one of each sun sign, the Sagittarian would probably be the first one to jump, content that something somehow would prevent them going splat at the bottom. And something somehow probably would.
The meaning of life
The Sagittarius man is typically a natural scholar, and loves both to learn and to teach, making conversations highly stimulating. As with other impatient signs he is likely to prefer the big picture rather than the details, which can lead him to being somewhat philosophical.
Typically he will be well educated, or planning to be, and is likely to prefer to focus on and master one subject, rather than dabbling in lots of different ones.
Ambitious, optimistic and enthusiastic, he sets himself lofty goals in life, though sometimes struggles to attain them, especially when unforeseen or overly boring details bury him.
On the negative side, he can be seen as lazy and undisciplined. Lacking a deep understanding of emotions he can also be seen as too blunt or shallow by more emotionally intense signs (and as a breath of fresh air to less emotional ones!)
Being highly physical he is likely to associate love with sex, or at least more so than most people do. Bold and passionate, he is also likely to be very open and direct sexually.
This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Sagittarius men are amongst the more kinky, yes.
He is likely to be very attractive and sexy due to his zest for life, and desire to explore and learn all about it. He is always up for a debate, and his enthusiastic optimism makes any subject fun. Physical and athletic he probably exercises regularly, and looks good as a result. Really the best of both worlds in one package!
This isn't a sign prone to cheating; however the Sagittarius man will value his freedom, and hate the idea of being trapped. This may come across as highly suspicious to some, and it's the worst thing which can happen, as freedom is fundamental to Sagittarius. This is an important area to acknowledge, as he may be unwilling to commit unless reassured he can still have his space.
This isn't a very subtle man, so obvious signs such as telling you, wanting to spend a lot of time with you, and getting jealous if you look elsewhere are reliable indicators. While being relatively unemotional or clingy, he isn't the type to play mind games with you deliberately however Sagittarius men do tend to be very cautious about committing, which can come across as being hot and cold.

Your Sagittarius will have his own unique personality traits. This article talks about sun signs, however there are many other factors. For example his moon sign determines his emotional personality which affects whether he is sensitive, romantic, loyal etc.
With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see my article on astrology compatibility readings.
I have a list of the top 400 most famous Sagittarius celebrities and historical figures.
Having fun with him is probably the biggest single ingredient. If he enjoys your company you're half way there. A good sex life and stimulating conversations will take care of the other half. This really isn't a complex man to figure out or make happy!
Relationships are complex things, comprising hundreds of individual elements. Sun signs are one of these, however a detailed analysis of everything is required to find all the strong and weak areas. Please see the article on astrology and soulmates for more information on how astrology can be used to determine if someone is your soulmate.
Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don't however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.
Generally they don't. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Sagittarius men do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:
Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.
From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.
This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Sagittarius men are totally identical. The key is understanding him and what he finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.
As with other intelligent signs he can be seen as lazy and undisciplined. Lacking a deep understanding of emotions he can also be seen as too blunt or shallow by more emotionally intense signs (and as a breath of fresh air to less emotional ones!)

This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results. This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information - everything from how they view you and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.

No! This article is based only on sun signs. In order to provide a lot of people with information those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone's personality.
To get a complete picture of someone through astrology we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their unique natal chart. For information on what's involved in this and the opportunity to obtain one for yourself and your partner please see the compatibility readings page.
