Why The Modern Dating Scene Is Driving You Batshit Crazy, Based On Your Zodiac Sign



(March 21st to April 19th)

You fall hard and fast, but your interest can also fade pretty quickly – so in a world where you’re constantly stimulated by potential new matches, you often get overwhelmed about how you’re supposed to possibly choose just one person.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You’re a very loving and warm partner and you greatly value a strong sense of security in a relationship. In a world of people who are terrified of commitment and people who take forever to settle down, you have a hard time maintaining your patience.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You have no problem with the fun and exciting new parts of a relationship, but have a hard time when it comes to taking the emotional intimacy to the next level. What drives you crazy is trying to overcome your tendency to put up walls, in a dating world where it’s so easy to remain distant and closed-off.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

One of the main ways you express your love is by always putting others’ happiness above your own. But you have a hard time wading through all of the selfish and self-absorbed suitors that are around these days, in order to get to the types of people that would treat you the way you deserve to be treated.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

One of the most important things to you in a relationship is mutual support and encouragement of one another when it comes to achieving your dreams, so you struggle a lot with sorting through the types of people who are in an every-man-for-himself type of mindset.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You’re a very meticulous and analytical kind of thinker, and like to take your time when it comes to dating and looking around for the right match. So one of the most frustrating things for you is when social media makes you feel like you’re being bombarded by one engagement or marriage announcement after another and are somehow screwing things up if you don’t get married when everyone else does.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You absolutely cherish your independence and your sense of space, and the modern dating scene feels like “couples overload” to you – couple friends, couple date nights, couple matching profile pics, couple bowling leagues, whatever. You often feel overwhelmed at trying to balance a relationship with maintaining your own sense of self.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

The most important thing for you is a strong and steady connection – so it can often feel like a lot of work trying to sort through the people who are looking for more “casual” kinds of relationships.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You’re extremely honest and straightforward – so the idea of having to “play games” and “wait thirty minutes before you text them back” kind of thing is incredibly annoying to you and a waste of time. You’d rather just straight up give them a call and make a plan to hang out.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You take your relationships very seriously, and they sometimes move a little slower because of it. So it’s very frustrating to you to try to date people who have an instant-gratification mindset and just want everything now, now, now.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You’re not about appearances or trying to be someone you’re not, so the whole ‘everyone trying to paint themselves in the best light’ thing completely exhausts you. Especially when it comes to online dating.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You’re extremely compassionate and sensitive, to the point where you give your whole self to a relationship. And when it ends poorly and the other person finds a fling or a distraction to help them quickly move on, you’re still nursing your wounds and trying to figure out how you can possibly let something go as easily and quickly as everyone else seems to be able to.
