Aries: March 21st – April 19th

You’re worried about losing your sense of self. You’re an independent woman and don’t want to give up nights with your friends and ‘me time’ with your bookcase. You’re worried that a relationship will ruin you. That it will turn you into someone you’re not.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

You’re terrified of change. Even though you daydream about what it would be like to have a boyfriend, the idea of leaving your house to go on an actual date makes you nauseous. You like things the way they are. You don’t want to take any risks. You want your world to stay the same.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

Sure, he may like you now. But you’re worried about what will happen when he sees the real you. The dark you with serious issues that you usually keep hidden. You’re terrified about opening up to him, showing him your true colors, and then being rejected for all that you are.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

You push people away, because you’re too picky. You want to meet your forever person so badly that you refuse to date anyone that doesn’t reach your sky-high expectations. But your forever person might not look like the fantasy man you see in your head. He might be the guy standing right in front of you.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

You have abandonment issues. You don’t want to let this person into your life, get used to having them around, and then watch them walk out the door without giving a goodbye. No. You’d rather continue on your own.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

You think too much. You spend so much time looking for red flags that you create problems that aren’t even there. You’re setting your relationships up for failure. You’re walking away before giving people a chance.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

You get attached quickly and it never works out well for you. So you’re trying hard to be emotionless for a change. To push all of your feelings away so they don’t have the power to hurt you — to push people away so they don’t have the power to hurt you.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

You’ve gotten irreparably hurt in the past. People have used you. Cheated on you. It’s hard for you to trust anyone now. It’s easier for you to push them away. It’s easier to make them think you hate them than to admit that you love them.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

You’re terrified of commitment. When you first find someone, you have fun flirting and imagining what things would be like if you were a couple. But as the days past and your daydreams slip into reality, you get scared. You get the urge to run off.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

You have a habit of listening to your head over your heart. Even though your body is telling you to go after the person you love, your mind is warning you to back off. It’s listing all of the things that could go wrong. It’s convincing you that you’re better off alone.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

You’re a tortured artist. The reason why you’re so creative is because you’ve been through pain and use art to cope with it. You’re used to suffering. To being brokenhearted. When someone actually shows you kindness, you don’t know how to handle it. It’s never happened to you before.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

You care more about others than you care about yourself. You don’t want to hurt them. You don’t want to disappoint them. You don’t want them to settle for you if they could have someone better. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
