Aries: March 21st – April 19th

You’re impatient, so you make all the first moves. You send the first text. You initiate the first kiss. And you’re the first one to invite them over to meet the parents. It’s a lot to deal with in a short amount of time. You need to slow it down.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

You act too tame. You accidentally make your crush believe that you only want to be friends, that you aren’t interested in an actual relationship. They run away, because they assume that you aren’t attracted to them. That they like you in a different way than you like them.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

You make your crush confused, because you never give them straight answers about how you feel. They can never tell if you actually like them or if you’re only flirting with them to pass the time. You chase them away with your mixed signals.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

You’re too open about your timeline, about wanting to settle down and get married and have kids as soon as possible. You chase boys away by treating a first date like a fiftieth date. By talking about serious topics too soon.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

You hate how weak emotions make you feel, so you pretend you don’t have any. You pretend you’re heartless. You chase your crush away by acting like you care less than you do. By acting like it doesn’t matter whether they ask you out or start dating somebody else.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

You are too emotional. You get upset over things that your crush does before you know the full story. You chase boys away by making assumptions and starting drama that didn’t need to happen.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

You don’t like dealing with confrontation and you hate feeling stressed. As soon as something goes wrong in a relationship, you give up on it. So you’re not really the type to chase boys away. You’re the one to run away.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

You’re afraid of getting hurt, so you close yourself off to people. You chase boys away by refusing to be vulnerable with them, refusing to tear down your walls and let them into your heart.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

You take way too long to commit. You still flirt around, even after you’ve found someone you really like — and that’s a major turn off. When your crush sees you playing the field, they lose interest in you. They assume you aren’t on the same page as they are.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

If you’re not careful, you can come across as pretentious. As a know it all. You can make other people feel like they aren’t as smart as you are, like you’re out of their league. It’s intimidating AF, so people assume they aren’t good enough for you and leave.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

You make too many romantic gestures too fast. You write poetry about your crush and send them mushy texts that you should be saving for after you’re officially in a relationship. You scare them off by coming on too strong.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

You become friends with your crush, make them feel like they can trust you and confide in you — and then, all of a sudden, you admit that you like them when they assumed you were always just a friend. The change is too sudden for them. Too weird for them. They never see it coming and it scares them. TC mark

The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved.

You don’t have to solve your whole life tonight. You just have to show up and try. Focus on the most immediate thing in front of you. You’ll figure out the rest along the way.
