The Brutal Truth About Why You Suck At Flirting, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Aries: March 21st – April 19th

You come on a little too strong. Since you know what you want and aren’t afraid of being blunt, you occasionally make sexual comments that make others uncomfortable. Most people aren’t used to your unrestricted honesty, which is why you come across as intimidating.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

You take way too long to make your move. You get close to the people you like, but never close enough. That’s why you always get stuck in the friend zone. You’re friendly instead of flirty. Sweet instead of sexy.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

You send too many mixed signals. You’ll text someone nonstop one week and then ignore then the next week. It’s confusing AF and can make the people you care about the most assume that you don’t give a damn about them.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

You want something real, which is why you hate small talk. You hate the beginning stages of a relationship. You try to jump into serious conversations during first dates, which can scare people off. You move too fast.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

You expect everyone to chase after you. That’s why you never send the first text or make the first move. You feel like that isn’t your job. You do nothing and expect them to do everything.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

You’re shy. You never walk up and say hello to anyone you like. You just stare at them and hope that they get the hint to approach you. You never end up with the people you want, because they have no idea how you feel about them.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

You rely too heavily on your looks. You spend too much time focusing on what you should wear in front of your crush instead of thinking about what you should say to your crush.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

Instead of just being yourself, you use too many corny moves. You flip your hair like you’ve seen movie stars do and you give them cliché compliments they’ve heard a million times before. It bores them.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

You flirt better with liquid courage. But when you drunk text the people you like, they assume that you aren’t serious about them. That you’re only looking for a hookup.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

Not everyone gets your sense of humor. You have a dark side, like to make sarcastic comments, and can come across as a bit of an asshole. So if someone doesn’t get you, they’ll be insulted instead of flattered by your flirting.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

You want everything to be like a romance movie, but that’s not the way the real world works. When you show up unannounced at your crush’s job or surprise them with a poem you wrote, it freaks them out. It’s more creepy than romantic.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

When you like someone, you send a lot of texts and snapchats and phone calls. You want to talk to them as much as humanly possible. But that can make you come across as clingy, which chases people away. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
