Every zodiac sign has unique, positive traits that make them a perfect fit for someone out there. On the opposite side of the coin, however, every sign has a quality or two that makes them difficult to be in a relationship with. The zodiac can tell you how to make someone fall in love with you as well as why your relationship might suck. You may already know the most annoying thing about you according to your sign, but is there something specific that’s hindering your partnerships from flourishing? The reasons you struggle with romance may be cause for trouble in relationships with friends and family, too.
Aries (March 21-April 19): You Can Be A Bit Suffocating
Aries is known as a highly independent sign, but they also love heaping attention on their partner and expect the same in return. While Aries are masters at listening, they can be overbearing at times, leaving their partner feeling suffocated. Aries and their partners should carve out a little time to themselves to maintain independence in what could otherwise be a smothering relationship.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You Can’t Let Things Go
Tauruses can be incredibly stubborn. Getting into an argument with a Taurus is difficult because they will rarely meet you halfway. However, Taurus’s stubbornness can also manifest in excessive loyalty. This sign may be so committed to their partner that they lose their sense of indviduality in the relationship. It’s important for the Taurus to sometimes concede to their partner, but not always.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): You’re Easily Distracted
Geminis are inquisitive, fun-loving, and want to see everything the world has to offer. It’s what makes Geminis exciting friends, but it also means they get bored easily. Gemini is not the ideal partner for those who are looking for stability. This sign loves games, and heavy flirtation is a huge part of their courting process. If a partner can’t reciprocate, the Gemini will tire of the relationship and quickly move onto the next.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): You’re Too Emotional
Cancers follow their heart, which makes them very loving, loyal partners. However, they tend to feel their emotions so strongly that they can become easily overwhelmed, and overwhelm others in the process. If a Cancer’s emotions get too intense, this sign will shut down completely. Partners view Cancers’ behavior as moody, but if the Cancer can open up and their partner can respect their feelings, a relationship can grow and thrive.
Leo (July 23-August 22): You’re Too Possessive
Leos are natural leaders who have easily wounded egos. They love attention, and they’ll accept it from just about anyone, even if that person isn’t a great match. For this reason, Leos tend to have a lot of drama in their love lives. It’s important for Leos to realize that just because someone isn’t heaping attention onto them doesn’t mean they’re totally uninterested; their partner simply may not move as quickly in relationships. On the opposite side of the coin, just because someone is giving the Leo lots of attention doesn’t mean they’re right for a long-term relationship.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): You’re A Perfectionist
Thoughtful and analytical, Virgos are extremely careful in all that they do. They love routine and tend to be perfectionists. Although they can provide a lot of stability in relationships, they tend to lack spontaneity and have difficulty switching things up, even if it’s what their partner desires. It’s important for Virgos to be flexible and to openly demonstrate the love they feel toward their partners.
Libra (September 23-October 22): You May Be Too Superficial
Many people have a “type,” or the sort of look or personality to which they’re attracted. Libras, though not always shallow, might be too aware of their partner’s appearance. This sign is always looking for someone they can show off to their friends, family, and coworkers. Typically, the Libra’s focus on how well a partner meshes with those most important to them is helpful in determining the potential longevity of their unions. It’s important, however, for Libras to try not to put appearance and social qualifiers above all the other positive characteristics their partner has to offer.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): You Keep Your Partner In The Dark
Scorpios are both passionate and mysterious, which means they tend to hide their true emotions, even if they’re very intense, from everyone, including those closest to them. Scorpios often refuse to disclose their feelings and intentions, which can create trust issues in any relationship. It’s important for this sign to decide what they want and be totally honest with their partners.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): You’re Too Into The Chase
Sagittarius is the sign of the hunter, so it just makes sense that this sign loves to pursue the object of their affections. Although Sagittariuses are typically upfront with their flings and one-night stands, the thrill of the chase can prevent this sign from finding true love. Rather, they discover themselves with a long list of ex-lovers turned friends instead of any meaningful commitment.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): You Have Trouble Showing Your Affection
Calling Capricorns the standoffish zodiac sign can be a bit of an understatement. Cautious and careful, they’re very particular about who they let into their lives. This sign tends to show love through practical actions rather than expressing how they feel. It’s important that Capricorns venture a little bit out of their comfort zones to keep romance alive in their relationships and remember that being vulnerable is an important part of letting someone in.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): You’re Too Shy
A naturally introverted zodiac sign, Aquarius draws strength from being alone. That’s not to say they wish to be lonely—Aquariuses just have an intense need for freedom. Unfortunately, others can read that introversion as rejection or even ego. Add that quality to the sign’s inclination toward logic in romance, and the Aquarius can seem distant.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): You’re Too Indecisive
Pisces wants it all—they crave freedom one moment and security the next. There is rarely any in-between with this sign, and the reality of commitment can seem disappointing. For this reason, Pisces are often drawn to partners with a dark side who tend to cause drama, which the Pisces secretly loves.
