How To Survive Modern Love, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

God & Man


(March 21st to April 19th)

You’ll survive modern love by facing it head on, by taking it for exactly what it is, with every ghost, breadcrumb, unanswered text, and anything else that would normally kill your motivation to date. You use it as fuel to keep on trekking. So some kid stopped responding to you on Tinder, on to the next one!


(April 20th to May 21st)

You’ll survive modern love by opening up your guarded heart. When one person lets you down, you’re convinced the next one will do the same exact thing, but if you just give them a chance, you might be pleasantly surprised. You’ll never find the person who doesn’t break your heart if you’re too scared to give it to them.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You’ll survive modern love by finally figuring out what you really want. Whether you want a relationship or not is up to you, but modern love and dating will remain extremely frustrating until you make that decision. While people are naturally attracted to your outgoing personality, your hot and cold behaviors can deliver mixed messages, and that is exactly what you need to avoid to survive modern love. Be direct with what you want, need, and expect.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You’ll survive modern love by utilizing your friends and family. The next time your mom tells you she knows the perfect match for you, maybe take her up on the offer. Your relationships with your friends and family are extremely strong, and they know you better than anyone. Survive modern dating by trusting them if they try to set you up.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You’ll survive modern love by keeping the ball in your court. Part of the huge conundrum with modern dating is the games that are played, but in your case, you’re really good at it and you know how to win them. You might just have to play along before you find the person who makes you realize that they’ll love you despite any game you try to play them in.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You’ll survive modern love by resisting your urge to completely overthink things. You don’t have to analyze every punctuation in every text, his question mark genuinely implies a question, and his smiley face is just an expression of happiness. Learn to calm down and take things for what they are, not what your overactive imagination is convincing you they are.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You’ll survive modern love by taking some time to be single. Take enough time to figure out who you are without someone else. I know it’s hard for you to be alone, but just try it. You’ll learn a lot about yourself along the way, and after you do, the stars of modern love might just align.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You’ll survive modern love by being yourself. You’re not fooling around, and you’re going to tell people exactly what you want, and if they piss you off, you’ll certainly let them know. This is a good thing in the case of modern love. You’re not wasting time with games. You basically make modern love and dating your bitch.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You’ll survive modern love by traveling to as many places as humanly possible to meet every kind of person this world has to offer. You’re looking for someone who’s just as deep as you are, and you’ll keep wandering until you find them. It might take you some time, but you don’t have a problem with waiting.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You’ll survive modern love by being focused. You’re insanely organized and task-oriented. You’ll make a social calendar designated just for dating, and you’ll kick modern love’s ass with it. You’ll never confuse one Tinder match with another. You know what you’re doing and you’re perfectly capable of juggling as many potential love interests as possible.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You’ll survive modern love by immediately disengaging from anyone who’s trying to play you, the exact second you discover that they are in fact trying to play you. You’re too smart and deep for surface-level games played by players who think they’re fooling you. You’re not fooled by anyone.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You’ll survive modern love with your infinite compassion. No one could possibly ghost, breadcrumb, or lead you on in any way imaginable because you are such a genuinely nice person. Fuckboys don’t fuck with you because you’re too nice to fuck with. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
