Zodiacs Ranked By How Likely They Are To Get Stuck In An Almost Relationship

1. Aries

Aries are stubborn. Instead of admitting that they have strong feelings for someone, they will keep it all inside. They will bottle up their feelings, even though they could turn their almost relationship into a real relationship if they were just honest about what they wanted. If they would be brave and take a chance on love.

2. Libra

Libras struggle to see their own worth. They let their insecurities get the best of them and end up in almost relationships, because they think it’s the best that they can get. Instead of focusing on the fact that someone is using them, that someone is treating them worse than they deserve, they are just happy that someone is attracted to them. They are happy they’re at least getting a little bit of attention.

3. Taurus

When a Taurus likes someone, they will settle for less than they deserve. They will give and give and give, even if all the other person does is take. Even if the relationship is completely one-sided. They will sacrifice all that they can in order to spend a sliver of time with the person that they can’t stop thinking about, because they think if they are good enough, they will change the other person’s mind. And that behavior is a recipe for almost relationships.

4. Leo

Leos will get stuck in almost relationships without even realizing it, because they make assumptions. They will assume that you are both on the same page. They will assume that you like them as much as they like you. They will assume that your situation is eventually going to turn into a full-fledged relationship. And when that doesn’t happened, they are going to be thrown off.

5. Scorpios

Scorpios have some trust issues. They are hesitant to enter serious relationships because they are terrified of getting hurt — which is why an almost relationship is perfect for them. They still get the late night talks and hugs and kisses without the commitment. It’s the perfect solution. It’s a comfortable way to get close to someone.

6. Pisces

Pisces end up in almost relationships more often than they end up in real relationships, because they are experts at lying to themselves. They tell themselves that the relationship is going to turn into something serious, even if it’s clear that the other person has no desire to make that happen. They trick themselves into thinking positive, because they don’t want to admit the truth.

7. Cancer

Cancers aren’t interested in anything casual. They want a commitment. The only way they’ll get stuck in an almost relationship is if they have already fallen for someone who isn’t ready for a real relationship. Then they will take what they can get, as long as that means spending time with the person they have strong feelings for. As long as that means they don’t lose the love of their life.

8. Gemini

Geminis have been in more almost relationships than they can count. But, honestly, they kind of enjoy them. Yes, in the end, they might have their heart broken. They might spend weeks moping in bed. They might spend months learning how to trust again. But the flirting is always fun while it lasts. It’s always nice to get close to someone, even if they aren’t there to stay.

9. Sagittarius

This sign never gets stuck in an almost relationship. They are the reason for the almost relationship. They are the ones claiming they aren’t ready for anything serious and that they just want to stay friends and that their ex really fucked them up. They would rather protect their heart by technically staying single than by starting something real.

10. Virgo

A Virgo might end up in an almost relationship, but not for long. As soon as they realize what’s happening, as soon as they see that the relationship is never going to develop into anything more, they start to distance themselves. They do what is best for themselves. They have too much self-respect to waste time on someone who doesn’t even want them.

11. Capricorn

Capricorns are blunt. They don’t have time for dating games. They know what they want — and they go after it. If you feel the same way as they do, then they will turn you into their life partner. If you feel differently, then they will move on. It’s as simple as that. No sense in making things more complicated than they have to be.

12. Aquarius

This sign doesn’t have time for your bullshit. If you aren’t serious about them, then they aren’t going to go out of their way to text you and make one-on-one plans with you. They would rather be alone than with someone who isn’t going to put any effort into the relationship. Screw that. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
