This Is The Kind Of Guy It Will Never Work Out With, Based On Your Zodiac Sign



(March 21st to April 19th)

It will never work out with a homebody. If his dream Saturday night involves the words “binge watch” or his favorite apparel is sweatpants, you will never be a match made in heaven. You’ll have fun with him, sure, but you can have fun with anybody — and wouldn’t you want to have fun with someone who doesn’t hold you back from being the adventurous, exciting person you are?


(April 20th to May 21st)

It will never work out with the guy who won’t express his feelings. YOU get the be the one who is reluctant to be all mushy, if both of you are that way it will be an eternal standoff. Taurus, you need someone to balance you out, not a twin. Find someone who can open up, even if it embarrasses you, even if it’s hard to get used to. You will feel stable and secure in each other’s love and have a super solid foundation to build an incredible future on.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

It will never work out with the pessimist guy. You are fundamentally an exciting, passionate, positive person. For you, the world is bursting open with possibilities and options, and all of them look good. You don’t need someone’s negativity holding you back. You can’t survive someone’s negativity holding you back.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

It will never work out with the guy with a short temper. You, loving Cancer, are too soft to deal with someone with so many rough edges. You’ll be exhausted by talking them down or by unintentionally doing the one thing you hate the most — letting down one of the people you love. You need to date a soft person, one who understands your gentle nature and won’t fly off the handle when they misunderstand you.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

It will never work out with a guy who competes with you. You want to be the star and you need someone who is okay with that. You need a cheerleader who loves when you succeed, not someone who feels insecure — or like it takes away from what he has. You’ll never be happy if you’re holding yourself back. You don’t deserve to have to do that.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

It will never work out with a lazy guy. You, Virgo, are so motivated and together and a general inspiration to 20-something hot messes everywhere. Why would you dumb yourself down? Why would you let yourself date a guy with a quality you would never tolerate in yourself? You can’t do that if you’re honest with yourself. Even if his laid-backness is appealing, even if you feel like he “balances” you out. Opposites can attract, but only if they respect their opposing values.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

It will never work out with a guy who’s paranoid. It’s understandable to be slow to trust if you’ve been cheated on before or had your heart ripped out — but you, Libra, can only wait so long. You are the most trustworthy sign in the Zodiac and you pride yourself on how good you are to those you love. You won’t be able to relax around someone who can’t appreciate this, you won’t be able to give one of your favorite things to give — your loyalty — because this person simply won’t accept it. And it has nothing to do with you. You need to find someone who is ready to open up and accept the love you are ready to give.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

It will never work out with the guy who tries to change you. You are the person you have become because you fought your way through everything that stood in your way. The wrong guy will try to “tame” this. He’ll use all sorts of words like being grown up or professional — but what he’ll mean is that the person you are is somehow wrong. You know he’s wrong, even if he makes you doubt yourself. Lose him.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

It will never work out with a guy who can’t take a joke. If he’s too conservative to laugh at himself, he’s too much of a prude for you. You’re the most fun sign in the Zodiac, you can’t be tied to someone who sees this as a flaw, not a talent.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

It will never work out with the man child. He makes you feel good, he makes you laugh, he can even really love you. But honey, know yourself. You want someone whose success inspires you. You don’t want to be someone’s mom. If you stay with him, you’ll resent him from holding you back from your power couple dreams.


(January 21st to February 18th)

It will never work out with someone who isn’t at least a little bit cerebral. You’re not traditional and you think for yourself and even when you’re trying not to be an intellectual snob you still demand these qualities out of the people you choose to respect. Not everyone is smart and not everyone is interested in smart people things, that’s fine, but they aren’t the people for you. They aren’t your people, and this isn’t your guy.


(February 19th to March 20th)

It will never work out with a guy who thinks art is dumb. He doesn’t have to be as sensitive and creative as you are (who is?) but he has to have an appreciation for whatever it is you do. He can’t think it’s just a hobby and he can’t think it’s silly. Date a Renaissance man. Date someone who takes you seriously. At the end of the day you’ll only be able to respect someone who respects you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
