The Number One Thing Preventing You From Finding Love, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


(March 21st to April 19th)

You’re easily infatuated but it’s a lot harder for you to actually stay in love with someone. Rather than looking for someone you know could make you happy long-term, you always go after the mysterious, intoxicating heartbreaker.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You have an exact and rigid idea in your mind of what a relationship is supposed to be, and if any aspect of your reality strays from that expectation, you run in the opposite direction.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You have no problem sharing the fun-loving and exciting side of yourself with others, but when it comes to reaching a deeper, more emotionally intimate level, you clam up faster than anyone.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Because your heart is so open, you often fall for people who are wrong for you, and anytime you experience heartbreak or rejection, you have a hard time coming back from it.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

In order to feel secure, you’re convinced that you need to be in control of everything, so being in a relationship in which you can’t control every single factor and environment can often wreak havoc on your love life.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Whether you realize it or not, you tend to obsess over the idea of the perfect partner, while forgetting that there is no such thing as a perfect human being. The thing that’s getting you into trouble is believing that whoever you date must meet every requirement on your list, and that if one thing is missing, it must mean that the relationship is hopeless.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Your desire for freedom and independence can sometimes make people think you’re disinterested in them, so it’s important for you to explain that just because you love to be free and adventurous, it doesn’t mean you don’t also want a partner.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Your romantic feelings and your desire to connect with someone can be a little intense at first. When a relationship settles into a comfortable rhythm it’s a great way to maintain passion, but if you don’t know how to initially reign in your strong feelings, they can be a bit overwhelming to whomever you’re dating.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You love to be the one to call first, initiate first, etc, but you’re also obsessed with the chase – which can be a little confusing to someone who feels like one minute they’re supposed to enjoy being courted and another minute they should be playing hard to get.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You have an extremely fun and playful side to you, but because you’re also so practical and logical, it can take you a long time to trust someone enough to open up to them.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You think that being detached and unemotional means you’re playing it safe, when in reality it’s just preventing you from an infinite number of wonderful relationships you could have had if you were willing to be vulnerable.


(February 19th to March 20th)

Your idea of love can be a bit idealistic, and sometimes you’re so passionate and excited about falling in love that you settle for someone who’s wrong for you – simply because you’re so enamored by the possibility of potentially finding ‘the one.’ Thought Catalog Logo Mark
