(March 21st to April 19th)

As an Aries, you live life in the fast lane. And in return, you can’t seem to find enough time for dating. You’re always on-the-go and you’re always super busy. And although you aren’t afraid to make the first move with someone new, you find it difficult to find time for that person. You like living life on your own rules, on your own time, and you have a hard time compromising that. Sometimes you’re not only physically unavailable, but also emotionally unavailable, without even realizing it.


(April 20th to May 20th)

As a Taurus, sometimes you’re too picky for your own good. You could meet somebody with every quality you’ve ever desired in a romantic partner, but if they’re “not your type”, you send them straight into the friend zone. Learn to stray away from your usual type. And don’t be so quick to judge somebody. Give someone different than what you’re used to a chance. You might be surprised that the “type” you glamorize isn’t really your type after all.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

As a Gemini, you’re unpredictable with your feelings and mood swings. You change your mind at the drop of a hat, which makes it difficult to stay committed to one person at time. It’s mostly because you never know when your mind will change, and it can in an instant. You usually reserve your feelings and keep them locked away, making it hard for others to understand how you’re really feeling. Keep in mind that being open and honest about who you are with others will only improve your relationships. People who are right for you will understand the way you are habitually and they’ll accept you for exactly who you are.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

As a cancer, you are compassionate by default. You are caring and sometimes people take advantage of that. By being single, you have more time to focus on taking care of yourself and your own needs. It gives you more opportunities to put you and your own happiness first for once- since you never usually do. Once you’re happy on your own, then you’ll be able to make someone else happy too.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

As a Leo, your confident can come across as cockiness. And sometimes, you are way up on your high horse, which puts a strain on your love life. The truth is that you might still be single because you tend to think of yourself as the King or Queen. And even if that’s the case, that doesn’t mean that other people automatically should bow down to you. There’s a fine line between arrogance and confidence, you take your pick of the two.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

As a Virgo, you are quite the perfectionist. You know what you want and don’t want from a relationship, which actually can be a very great thing. The good thing about being so aware is that you know what you don’t want, but it makes it hard to get to know people when you’re over critical about the little things. Keep in mind that your core values are important and that you deserve to be with someone who’s on your level and is going to make you happy. But also keep in mind that what’s going to make you happy might come in a package that surprises you at first. The right person is going to enhance your life and won’t be a distraction to your goals and career. They’ll fit in if you let them in.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Somewhere along the line you decided that you were no longer worthy of true love. Maybe you were involved in a relationship that became toxic. And now you are unsure how to be in a healthy relationship. You may have hurt somebody in the past or gotten hurt yourself. Whatever the case may be, you have grown from these experiences. You have matured immensely over the years and it’s time for you to see that yourself. You in fact, are very worthy of true love. But only once you believe it yourself.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

As a Scorpio, you are a dreamer. You have big, big dreams. And being single means you are able to chase those dreams without having to worry about how another person fits into your fantasy. You are on the hunt to figure out exactly who you are. And it’s a #1 priority of yours. Right now you aren’t all that interested in finding the one. You’re looking to find yourself first. So, go do just that.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

As a Sagittarius, you are somewhat of a know-it-all. You are very opinionated and sometimes struggle with believing others, even when they’re being sincere. And because of this, it puts a strain on your love life at times. even people. You’re hard to read, and when others feel neglected from your, they might assume that you don’t care about them. You find it difficult to fully invest in someone. That’s because you always have that little glimpse of doubt in the back of your mind which prevents you from doing so.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

As a Capricorn, sometimes you come off as being selfish. You’re ambitious, and you have a vision of your future in mind. It’s difficult for you to explain that to others, and sometimes it leads to coming off as arrogant and one-sided. You feel strongly that there is a right way to do things and a wrong way, and usually your way is the right way. Sometimes you will try to force your opinions and ideas onto others because you believe so strongly that they’re right. Remind yourself that there’s more than one way to do anything, and your own way might differ from somebody else’s way, but that doesn’t make your way better than theirs.


(January 21st to February 18th)

As an Aquarius, you are spontaneous and wildly impulsive. You have a multi- dimensional personality and there are many different sides to who you really are. And sometimes this makes it hard to focus on one thing (or one person) at a time. You’re someone who enjoys having freedom. And you find that you feel super restricted when involved in a serious relationship.


(February 19th to March 20th)

As a Pisces, you thrive off being selfless. You love making other people happy, and your selflessness is a curse and a blessing. You enjoy being single because being single means you can focus on growing as a person and putting your energy into your own needs and ideas. And you don’t have to worry about someone taking advantage of your kindness. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
