7 Life Path number

If, after stalking her for months and leaving messages almost daily, she finally surrenders and decides to leave her laptop alone for a few hours to spend time on a date with you, the 7 lady will probably outperform you intellectually, make you nervous with her penetrating eyes and be none too impressed by your fancy outfit or your fat wallet. A 7 lady is a force to be respected and feared. She looks right through all things artificial, can't be fooled with compliments and is in constant search of the reality behind the illusions. But you can conquer her heart and win her everlasting love if you have intellectual curiosity, are hungry for knowledge and write her poems every time you sense you are starting to bore her (which is probably often). She is not interested in flowers, but take her to a museum and she will hang on your arm and adore everything about you. And if, by some gargantuan effort, you manage to steal her heart, you will know it was all more than worth it.

A first date with a 7 guy can be an adventure of a different kind. First, you will probably find it challenging to keep up with him. When is he serious and when is he joking? When is he making fun of you and when is he offering one of his clumsy compliments? The truth is, all of the above. When he tells you one of his dry jokes, he is being serious, because inevitably that joke touches upon something that matters. When he makes fun of you, it is because he likes you, respects you and is trying to compliment you. And when he is quiet, which is often, there is a lot of activity going on inside his brain. If you like him and appreciate his off-beat demeanor and his eccentricity, you want to give him space, the freedom not to be part of a conversation and a love that does not demand excessive shows of affection. His love for you will be as powerful as any man can offer, but it will be a quiet, discreet kind of love.

8 Life Path number

The number 8 lady is demanding and will take charge of the evening whether you like it or not. Fortunately, you probably will, as long as you don't make it too easy for her. She doesn't much care for pushovers, so feel free to disagree, confront and stand your ground -- for a little while, anyway. In the end you will have to surrender and compromise, giving her the upper hand. Showing up with a big bunch of flowers probably won't do much, but give her an expensive bottle of perfume and she will love you for it. She likes practical gifts that keep on giving, not something she has to stuff in the garbage can a week later. She is not particularly romantic, but likes good conversations in a classy environment with someone who sees the world the way she does: a down-to-earth perspective that does not deny the magic.

An 8 guy is a different story altogether. Like the 8 lady, he is not particularly romantic, but that is where the similarities end. The 8 man needs compliments, likes to be in charge without being questioned and is happiest on a pedestal. There is a pretty good chance he is successful, but even if he is not, it is probably his first priority. If you like a strong, decisive and authoritative partner, you can't do much better. However, it pretty much requires you to be rather submissive and devoted to his goals and priorities. You have to put yourself in second place. On the other hand, he is not the most subtle person, so if you play it smart, all you have to do is give him the illusion that he is in charge while, in fact, you are guiding and controlling him. That shouldn't be too hard!

9 Life Path number

A date with a 9 lady is as predictable as the path of the Moon. You pick her up in your fancy automobile, she opens her own door, makes a slightly derogatory remark about your gas-guzzling pride and glory, looks around the interior of your vehicle for any signs of fast food wrappers or leftovers, then asks you which restaurant you had in mind. And you better mention either a health food joint or the local soup kitchen where you planned to volunteer for an hour before sitting down with her to eat. If you can do that, you've got it made. A 9 lady has a social and environmental consciousness, and that, my friend, is something you better respect. In most other ways she is easy-going, low-maintenance, generous, warm and can out-lady any socialite when she feels like it. Women with a 9 Life Path often stand out simply by standing; regal, proud and refined. And what is sexier than that?

Meeting a 9 guy for the first time with romantic expectations is bound to disappoint initially. And yet, chances are good that by the end of the evening you will want a second date. Your first impression probably is that he is opinionated, a brainless do-gooder and a self-righteous know-it-all. But as the evening progresses, and if you haven't already left, you may also find that he is interesting, worldly and truly knowledgeable (as in someone who reads the papers and news magazines, as opposed to having been exposed only to sound bites from the idiot box). He cares not about materialistic things and grandstanding is not in his nature. He is, however, conscious and alert, aware of things that escape most other people and lives to make the world a better place for everyone. He can be a bit annoying when he talks about carbon footprints and healing the planet, but there is no doubting his integrity and devotion. If you want a second date, wear Birkenstocks, a tie-dyed T-shirt, hair in a bun and a full length skirt. Just kidding! But practical, down-to-earth clothes probably fare better than flashy and hip. And above all, he will not expect you to be as involved with healing the planet as he is, but he does expect you to be genuine and honest.
