This Is How You Sabotage Your Love Life (Without Even Realizing), Based On Your Zodiac Sign

God & Man


(March 21st to April 19th)

You sabotage your love life by keeping your options opened. You go on tons of dates, which isn’t a bad thing, but when you find someone you have a real interest in, you continue to go on tons of dates, and this person thinks you’re not as interested as you really are. It’s awesome that you don’t feel the need to settle, but settling and settling down because you really like someone are two different things.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You sabotage your love life because you’re extremely slow to open up to people. Part of the reason you’re always so reliable is because you’ve been let down one too many times, and your trust has suffered because of it. You can’t let disappointments from previous relationships close you off to forming new ones. Try to be more trusting, and opening up won’t be so difficult.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You sabotage your love life because you’re kind of a complicated person. Sometimes you don’t know what it is you’re looking for or want, and the people who date you can feel it. You hate to be alone, so you’re completely open to dating, and there’s nothing more that you enjoy than having a companion, but your hot and cold behaviors tend to scare most companions away. Be clear about what it is you’re looking for. Communicate your feelings.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You sabotage your love life because your deep feelings scare people, especially potential love interests. You can’t help it that you care, but sometimes people misunderstand your care and empathy for clinginess and crazed behaviors. Don’t tone yourself down for other people, but try to find the person who understands your emotions for what they really are.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You sabotage your love life because your confidence makes people think you’re conceited. It’s not your fault that you love who you are, but try not to talk SO much about yourself and your life, and instead ask more about whoever you’re dating. It’s fine to take the lead in conversation, but taking the lead is different than thinking the universe revolves around you.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You sabotage your love life because you think WAY TOO FAR into things. You think that if you over-analyze everything you’ll protect yourself from getting hurt, but in the end you’re just closing yourself off. Be open-minded before you jump to assumptions on how people feel about you. Surprisingly others aren’t as hard on you as you are on yourself.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You sabotage your love life because you hate being alone, so much so that you jump into relationships with people you’re not even sure you really like. You’re a likable person so your problem is never finding a date, it’s finding the right one. Avoid jumping into relationships just because you’re lonely, and you’ll find you might meet someone you genuinely enjoy being with.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You sabotage your love life because people mistake your straight-forward personality as rude. You say it like it is and some people would kill for that type of confidence, but not everyone understands your sense of humor, and not everyone enjoys it, and you’re the first to admit that. You know exactly what you want, so you’ll stop sabotaging yourself eventually.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You sabotage your love life because you’re far too busy wandering the world to worry about finding ‘the one.’ You love change, and you can’t stand being stuck in one place for very long, which has the tendency to affect your love life. You don’t need to hone in your adventures to find someone you love, you need to fall in love while you’re off adventuring.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You sabotage your love life because you constantly expect the worse, and you prepare yourself for it too. You have trouble enjoying the present when you meet someone you have real interest in because you’re too busy worrying about what will go wrong in the future. You’ll never know if a relationship is going to end in heart break, so let yourself enjoy the moment, and just be.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You sabotage your love life because other people bore you. You’re an intellect and you think that small-talk is a waste of time, but not everyone is as deep as you are. Think of small-talk less as a meaningless conversation, and more as an intro to getting to know someone better. People are full of surprises and once you pass the small-talk they might more interesting than you thought.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You sabotage your love life because you’re a hopeless romantic. You want your life to be like a romantic comedy where Matthew McConaughey saves you from a giant dumpster rolling down the street and leaves his fiancé to marry you instead. Romance is sweet, but relationships and real love aren’t always going to look like they do in the movies, or in a Nicholas Spark novel. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
