The One Thing About You That Completely Confuses The People You Date, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

God & Man


(March 21st to April 19th)

They’re confused by the way you say things before thinking about what you’re actually saying, and how it will make others feel. Your outgoing energy makes you act first, think second. They don’t have to read your mind to know what you’re thinking, which should cause no confusion at all, but sometimes they’re sensitive to the things you say that you probably shouldn’t, and they won’t know how to react. How do you react to someone blatantly telling you your clinginess is annoying?


(April 20th to May 21st)

They’re confused by how long it takes you to open up, and by how attached you become once you finally do. You’re guarded because you want to be sure you can fully trust someone before you let them into your life, but once you know you can fully trust them, you hang on for dear life. A Taurus has a lot of love to give, but the people you date are confused by how long it takes for you to trust them to receive it.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

They’re confused because one day you think you finally want to settle down and commit to one person, and the next day you’re out for happy hour competing to see who can get the most numbers between you and your coworker. Your indecisiveness is what confuses them the most, but you can’t help that you sometimes want to have your cake and eat it too. There’s so much this world has to offer, you want it all.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

They’re confused by what you really want. You lead with your emotions, but your partner isn’t always capable of understanding them. They can’t read your mind, and they won’t always be able to decode the things you do that actually mean you’re mad, happy, or sad. Emotions are really hard for some people to express, so it’s wonderful that you have them, but don’t expect everyone will always understand the way you’re feeling.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

They’re confused most by the way you love to take the lead, and whether or not they’re supposed to let you. They wonder if deep down you want them to take the lead instead. When you make all the decisions like where to go and what to do on dates, they enjoy it, but they’re simultaneously worried that they should be making decisions occasionally too.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

They’re confused by the questions you ask them when you’re clearly overthinking something that does not need to be over-thought. Your relationships aren’t as complicated as you think them up to be. The wheels of your mind are constantly spinning, which is wonderful, but slowing them down just a bit might cure your chronic over-thinking.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

They’re confused by the way you try so hard to please them when they’re already evidently happy. You love to make your partner feel loved, but sometimes you over-do it because you’re secretly afraid they’ll leave you. It’s okay if you’re afraid to be alone, but don’t let your fears interfere with your relationship.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

They’re confused by the way you value honesty, yet never believe they’re telling the truth. You have a hard time trusting the people you’re dating, because you’ve been lied to before, but the only way to build trust in a relationship is when you prove you’re actually worthy of being trusted. Unfortunately for the people you date, it’s nearly impossible. Don’t expect the worst. Don’t jump to conclusions, but also don’t let them walk all over you, and as a Scorpio there’s no way you’d ever let that happen.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

They’re confused by the way you wander. They don’t understand what you want because you’re never really in one place long enough for them to find out. You enjoy change and flexibility, and not everyone is comfortable enough to settle down with you because of it. You need to date the people who will wander with you, not the people who wonder why you’re constantly packing up to leave.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

They’re confused by the way you manage your love life like it’s your career. You’re professional, which is admirable, but your relationships aren’t as easy to organize and control as your work calendar is. Dating and relationships are unpredictable and messy. Be flexible and realize that you can’t control every little thing.


(January 21st to February 18th)

They’re confused by the way you constantly need more. You like a challenge, and once you complete a challenge, you look for another one. You can’t stand limitations, and it sometimes makes the people you date feel like they’re keeping you from what you really want, or like they’re not enough. It sucks to feel inadequate especially when it comes to relationships. If you truly enjoy the person you’re dating, make sure they know.


(February 19th to March 20th)

They’re confused by the type of connection you’re looking for. You’re deep and passionate, romantic and artistic, and you want to connect with people on a level that’s more meaningful than small-talk and basic ‘get to know you’ questions. If you’re going to have a relationship with someone, you want it to be real and raw, but not everyone you date will know what that means. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
