Why Your Crush Won’t Text You Back, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Aries: March 21st – April 19th

It’s no secret that you can come on a little strong. You might’ve scared your crush off by sending three texts in a row or by sharing too much information too early. They could even be intimidated by how forward you are, because they’re not used to your type of unadulterated honesty. Either they’re taking hours to respond, because they can’t figure out what to say to you, or because they can’t handle a personality as passionate as yours.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

You shouldn’t get too upset about not getting a text back. The only reason your crush is taking forever to answer is because you took forever to answer them. It’s an eye for an eye situation. They don’t understand how bad your procrastination can be, and are assuming that you just don’t give a shit about them. Why should they bother to answer you if they don’t think you even like them? They’re waiting for you to put in some effort before they do the same.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

Your crush never knows what to expect when it comes to you. That’s why they aren’t going to text you first, because they’re not sure which side of you they’re going to get. The flirty, fun-loving side? Or the depressed, whiny side? They’d rather wait for you to initiate the conversation, so they know that you’re in a good mood. They don’t want to catch you on a bad day and end up ruining the relationship that you’ve started to develop.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

You’re an expert when it comes to hiding your feelings. That’s why your crush has absolutely no idea if you can’t stand them or if you’re secretly in love with them. They don’t want to text you, because they’re worried about bothering you. They don’t know how much they mean to you, which is why they don’t consider talking to you a priority. They assume that you’re perfectly happy without them, so they have no problem keeping to themselves.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

Your crush expects you to take the reigns. They want you to text first, and when the conversation gets boring, they want you to lead it in a different direction. They know you have a lot to say and are waiting for you to say it. Either that or they’re intimidated by your big ego. They know how high your self-esteem and standards are, so they’re assuming that you wouldn’t like someone as insignificant as them.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

It’s not that your crush hates you. It’s just that you’re thinking way too much into things. It hasn’t been all that long since your crush texted you, now has it? You need to take a step back and stop analyzing your situation. You didn’t creep them out. You didn’t scare them off. They’re probably busy. Give them a few minutes, because they’ll reply sooner or later. You just have to be patient.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

Here’s the thing: You’re too nice. Unfortunately, if you want to make it far in the dating world, you have to be a bit of an asshole. No, you don’t have to criticize your crush and make them cry. But you can’t act like an innocent little angel, either. To put it bluntly, your crush isn’t responding, because they think you’re boring. So stop saying what you think they want to hear and just be yourself.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

Even though you really like your crush, you can’t get pissed off whenever they talk to someone else attractive. Your jealousy could ruin your relationship before it even begins. Why would your crush want to date you if they find out that you’re overly possessive early on? Instead of sending them dozens of texts at once and asking them where they’re going and who they’re going to be with, try to play it cool for a change.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

You’re not all that skilled when it comes to committed relationships. After all, you always have ten crushes at once. If one of those crushes isn’t texting back, it’s probably because they don’t know if you’re serious about them. It seems like you treat everyone the same way, so they don’t realize how special they are to you. And if they’re looking for something real, they won’t want to waste their time with you if they’re convinced you’re trying to play the field.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

Your crush doesn’t always want to talk about their job or the state of the economy. Sometimes, they want to let loose and have fun. Even though your practicality is normally a good thing, it can harm you when it comes to dating. After all, spontaneity helps in relationships. Sometimes, you have to make stupid decisions in order to get the one you want. You’re too serious for your own good.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

Your crush isn’t responding to you, because they want more than a relationship over text. They actually want to see you face-to-face, but your plans usually fall through. After all, you can be a little lazy and would prefer to relax in your pajamas and talk over Skype than to go through the trouble of going out on an actual date. But all that needs to change if you want to keep your crush around. They need you to make an actual move.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

Your crush isn’t texting you back, because you’re crushing on the wrong person. They’ve fooled you into falling for them, even though you deserve someone much better. Your crush is never going to treat you the right way. They don’t care about you the way you want them to, and they never will. That’s why you need to move on and find someone who’s actually worthy of your time. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
