The loyal, devoted and obsessive Scorpio

If you were born between October 23 and November 21 you're a Scorpio — named for that venomous arthropod, but a sign people say is known for its loyalty and devotion. Scorpio, a water sign, is characterised by having deep feelings and emotions, and they're very passionate and intuitive.

But those who date them will tell you that while they're faithful, devoted and reliable, they can also sting — and mind games, treachery and being obsessive lie beneath that endearing first appearance. What's it like dating a Scorpio?

THE SCORPIO WOMAN

Ricardo, 29:

She's secretive, very secretive, and extremely moody, with a jealous streak that's like no other. But she's also a good partner, loyal to a fault, and she will take care of you. But get on her bad side and the devil will come out, because in the same way she will love you with every fibre of her being, she will punish you with the same intensity.

Antonio, 36:

This woman needs to be in control — it's like the air she breathes; she wants that dominance. If you're ready for that intense kind of love where someone is attached to you like glue, then this woman is ideal. If you're not looking for a hyper-controlling boss, then run.

Jeffrey, 50:

Insecure, jealous, always vulnerable, always the victim... it may be adorable at first, but then it starts to get old. If you find yourself a victim of a Scorpio woman, then expect to be a target of jealousy, rage and revenge, especially if you wrong her, because she will hold a grudge for life.

THE SCORPIO MAN

Angela, 55:

He will give a LOT of love, too much, but in return he is so emotional, that his emotions will control everything in his life. And because he doesn't want to come off soft, he will try to act cold and emotionless, but then the tears will come on if you don't "understand" him. Scorpio men get attached easily, and if you don't return the love, they will start being obsessive in a desperate attempt to keep the relationship afloat.

Arlene, 38:

Cunning like a fox. A true leader who will seem calm and cool on the outside, but you'll probably find him crying in the bathroom after an argument. This is the man who will be loyal to you and be a very good partner, but if he ever gets a hint that someone else is interested, he will turn into Magnum PI and stalk and obsess over you, then cry about it.

Racquel, 26:

This man will pursue you endlessly, and do whatever it takes to get you, once he likes you. Then when he gets you, he will be really good to you in the relationship. So Scorpio men seem like the ideal partners, but they're also the quiet, Dexter type who will plan your demise if you cheat.
