Greetings, fellow wizards and witches! Are you a Slytherin looking for love in all the wrong places? Well, fear not, because today we’re diving deep into the art of Slytherin compatibility. That’s right, we’re talking about the traits that give you the symbol of the snake and how you can best approach dating in the non-wizarding muggle world.
Slytherin: The House of Snape, Snakes, and Sparks
The house of Slytherin may have a negative reputation, but you’re just as deserving of love as everyone else. Sure, you may be a little power-hungry, but you’re also incredibly ambitious, sly, witty, and cunning. You know how to get the job done, even if you do it in a non-traditional way. But when your love life comes into the picture, you’ll double down for the people you care about. Yeah, you have a strong sense of self-preservation and value your independence, but you’re also fiercely loyal. Once someone enters your stratosphere, they’ll become a friend or partner for life.
Dating as a Slytherin can present some unique challenges. You may appear intimidating or unapproachable, and your ambition and desire for success can sometimes take priority over your romantic relationships. Still, with a little effort, you’ll have just as much success as the Gryffindor next door. So grab your broomsticks and get ready for a ride. You won’t need your spell book for this one.
Slytherin’s Ideal Date
Love Potion or a Game of Quidditch?
As a Slytherin, you appreciate the finer things in life and set high expectations for your dating life. Whether you’re invited on a date or someone else has asked you out, you know what to expect from a night on the town. The more luxurious or elegant the setting, the better. A high-end restaurant or a private wine tasting is much preferable over a casual bar or low-class restaurant. No fast food for you, Slytherin.
Some may call you snobby, but it’s really just that you have good taste. You’re an intellectual at heart, and you’ll seek thought-provoking discussion to connect with your date. Because you like questioning things, you’ll have no problem bringing up potentially controversial topics. A healthy debate never hurt anybody.
You’re independent and self-reliant and appreciate a partner who is confident and self-assured. A bit of adventure or risk-taking will add an extra layer of excitement to your dates. Not only will you take the road less traveled–you’ll ignore the no-trespassing sign telling you to turn back. After all, you don’t like being told what to do. And in that vein, you also like being in control and taking the lead on a date, mainly because you know that if you plan the outing, you’re not going to be disappointed by what unfolds.
As a Slytherin, you value loyalty, so you’ll seek dates that allow you and your partner to develop a level of trust. Hiking together or taking part in a group sport is a great way to get to know if this prospective date is someone you could rely on. And because you have a guard up, it may take some time to get to this level of trust.
Slytherin’s Communication Style
Send a Howler or Disapparate?
As a Slytherin, you’re direct and blunt–sometimes to a fault. You’re a strategic thinker and will absorb the situation from all perspectives before deciding to speak, but once you open your mouth, you’re going to say it like it is. You’re incredibly straightforward in your communication and value and expect clarity and efficiency in your interactions with others.
You don’t need to be a wizard to know what someone is thinking. You have an innate ability to read people and situations, which allows you to tailor your communication style to the person you’re with. This can sometimes come off as manipulative, but your intention is to use the power of the spoken word to achieve your goals in a way that benefits everyone involved.
Slytherins aren’t afraid to speak up and assert themselves when necessary. Conflict is part of life and doesn’t have to be problematic if dealt with correctly. You’re never going to shy away from expressing your opinions or defending your beliefs. However, you also value diplomacy and the ability to negotiate and compromise to move forward. Still, if someone wrongs you, you will not forget it.
Slytherin’s Preferred Love Language
A Gift from Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes or Scourgify the House before Dinner?
Acts of service are definitely your dominant love language, Slytherin. You’re highly independent and self-reliant, and because you’re used to doing things on your own, you’ll recognize and appreciate when your partner helps you out or take care of things on your behalf. This could mean cooking you dinner, doing your laundry, or helping you with a project you’re working on.
Even though you’d never admit it, you’re also fond of words of affirmation. Because success is important to you, you’re ambitious and driven, and you appreciate when your partner acknowledges and praises your accomplishments. A simple compliment or encouraging word can go a long way in making you feel valued and appreciated. But because you don’t like being vulnerable, you probably won’t tell your partner this. It’s something you can definitely work on.
The Snake, Lion, Eagle, or Badger?
You’re unique, Slytherin, in that your ideal pairing is with all the other houses except your own. Slytherins and Gryffindors can have a fiery and passionate relationship, but their differences in communication style and approach to problem-solving may cause tension. Gryffindors are more impulsive and action-oriented, while you, Slytherin, prefer to plan things ahead of time. Hufflepuffs value, loyalty and dedication, which aligns well with your appreciation for dependability and reliability. However, Slytherin’s ambitious and independent nature can clash with Hufflepuff’s tendency to prioritize the needs of others over their own.
Just keep in mind that you may be a bit more competitive than Ravenclaw, and this could cause some conflict if you’re not careful. It’s that exact competitive nature that would probably drive a relationship with another Slytherin into the ground. While you both value loyalty above all else, you’re mutual interest in always taking the lead will mean you two will end up going in opposite directions.
