(March 21st to April 19th)

He’ll go on a weekend get away with all of his guy friends, and he won’t tell you that the girl he used to hook up with is also going, and she’ll probably be the only girl there. The Aries guy likes to have his independence, but he knows you’ll get upset if you were aware that a girl he used to be attracted to (and probably saw naked) was staying in the same hotel as him for the weekend without you there. He needs to go on his little adventures and get away, so he’ll keep the fact that this chick will be there, discreet.


(April 20th to May 21st)

He’ll buy his attractive co worker (who’s a woman) an expensive birthday gift that costed more than the one he bought you.  He wants to impress her and he wants to give her something that will make her think he has a lot of money and nice things. He tries to justify it by saying that he buys you nice things too, but even if the last gift you received from him was expensive, it had no thought behind it.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

A woman he’s ‘just friends‘ with (but you know he’s attracted to) will post a photo of her ass doing squats at the gym, or a boob-shot of her tanned bikini body laying out in the sun, and he’ll comment saying something like ‘Dang’ or ‘Lookin good.’ He gets restless in relationships and he needs to keep his sanity by following other girls on instagram that post provocative photos that give him a half-boner.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

He’ll message his ex on social media during the holidays with hopes she’ll want to meet up and grab a coffee or drink. He likes what’s familiar. He won’t micro-cheat with a stranger, he’ll go back to the women he’s already had sex with.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

He’ll tip your attractive waitress an absurd amount of money, and he’ll eye fuck her the entire dinner. When he micro-cheats it’s all about him, not the girl he’s choosing to micro-cheat with. He leaves her an insanely generous tip because he wants her to think he’s loaded and takes care of his women.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

He’ll have all of his exes in his phone under secret code names just in case they text him and he wants to respond. He pays attention to every detail and he’s going to try and keep his micro-cheating as undercover as he possibly can. It’s not like he wants to get back with them (he says) he just wants them to be able to reach him if they need to…without you knowing.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

He’ll do really generous things for another woman and he’ll say he’s just being nice. He’ll help another girl move all of her furniture when the lease is up to her apartment, and she rents out another one. He’ll give another woman a ride home from happy hour when she says she’s going to take the subway. He’s a Libra, he is nice, but he knows when he’s taking it too far.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

The Scorpio man values honesty so he’ll be super open about his micro-cheating and expect that to make you more accepting of it. He’ll tell you that he’s getting drinks with his ex, and he’ll tell you that he’s texting her when he is. He tells you the truth so he can say, ‘At least I’m not lying about it.’


(November 23rd to December 21st)

He’ll take a trip without you and meet other women that he stays in touch with. He calls them his friends from [wherever he traveled to]. You know he’ll probably never see them again, but you hate that they keep in touch publicly on social media and post photos on each other’s walls of where they should travel to next. They dedicate most of their #tbt’s to each other with photos from their trip, caption: Miss this!.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

He’s the office flirt. He knows all of the young attractive women in the office and their coffee orders so that he can get it for them just the way they like. He usually pays too. When they wear a new dress he says, ‘New dress? You look great, Celeste!’


(January 21st to February 18th)

He’s too shy to micro-cheat in person, he does it online. He’ll have an emotional affair through email. He’ll tag other women in funny photos on instagram that he says are inside jokes. He’ll DM cool inspirational quotes to other women with hopes that an intellectual conversation (via social media) will follow. He micro-cheats in all the ways he’s too scared to do in person, online.


(February 19th to March 20th)

He’ll send another woman a dozen roses when she’s gone through a terrible break up. He’s romantic and he does stereotypically romantic things. You’ll see an email from 1-800-FLOWERS pop up on his phone and think, ‘Awe how sweet, he got me flowers,‘ and then you’ll be really confused when you don’t receive any. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
