People born under Gemini, the third sign of the zodiac, love to talk and drive conversations. This is not neccessarily small-talk, however, as the mind drives the conversations that Geminis have. Geminis are intellectually inclined, constantly searching for information in people and places. To a Gemini, the more information, the better. They love to share this information with loved ones as well, as they are very interested in developing their relationships with others. Friendships with Geminis are very enjoyable, as Geminis are positive, quick-witted people. Most Geminis are not boring at all because of this.
Gemini is an air sign, and like the other air signs (Libra and Aquarius) they are clever thinkers and enjoy abstract ideas. Air signs focus around communication - they want to conversationalize without fluff. They strive to perceive and explain the world and situations around them.
As the Twins are the symbol of Gemini, people born under this sign have no trouble seeing both sides of an issue. This also makes them wish-washy at times, as their moods may change quickly. This is in part to their mutable quality, for mutable signs (including Sagittarius and Pisces) go with the flow. They are very flexible and adaptable. This quality of Gemini allows them to tackle many tasks at once, which proves very useful in their numerous interests. The downfall of this curious mind, however, is that they do not always follow-through with projects and interests.
Gemini is also ruled by Mercury, meaning they think quickly and are fast on their feet. The messenger god of Roman mythology is associated with this sign, and thus they are curious and clever to learn and give information. Because of this, they are often considered the life of the party with their great conversations.

Geminis love to date. They almost consider it a skill - they love having first dates and use their optimism to bring their dates out of their shells. Though Geminis do love dating, it sometimes may be hard for them to take the next step. They enjoy the idea of love, but they also value their independence and want to be certain that their individuality will not be sacrificed in a partnership. Though Geminis are not dishonest, partners may think they lead people on because their ruling planet, Mercury, makes them very skilled at telling people what they want to hear. They also don't care about convention; it is very common for a Gemini to date someone that their friends and family would not expect.
Geminis are most compatible with Aries, Leo, and Libra. Read more about zodiac compatibility here.
Geminis have no problem making friends. However, only people that seek intellectual stimulation and strong conversations can hope to be long-term friends with a Gemini. People born under this sign look for companions that can communicate. Geminis want to learn from others' experiences and partake in diverse activities.
Family is also important to Geminis, so they will typically fulfill familial obligations with no problem. They enjoy spending time with family members that have similar personality traits to them.
Geminis excel in communication at the workplace. They are masters at getting ideas across and find success in individualized fields as well as collaborative workplaces. Though they are great and conveying projects, finishing tasks is a downfall of theirs. They prefer to do what they excel at, and if they are frustrated with a task, they may falter.
In terms of work style, Geminis love to dive into projects and work on them for hours - if that particular project interests them. They dislike rule-oriented jobs and expect freedom in the workplace. Geminis enjoy collaborating with coworkers and expect that their peers trust them to get the job done. Though they are great at conceptualizing ideas, breaking down these projects into viable tasks may be difficult for a Gemini. Working with an Aries or Taurus may help them get the job done.
