Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You convince yourself that you don’t. You convince yourself that you’re just friends and you don’t want anything more because you’re not ready, even if you can’t stop thinking about that person, you still won’t say it.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You’re still not sure about how they feel and you’re too stubborn to ask or even be okay with the idea that you can be the first to say it, regardless of the response you might get.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You don’t have a problem professing your love to someone, the problem is that you don’t which one, you usually have feelings for more than one person and sometimes you can’t decide who your heart really wants.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You will only say it when you know for sure that they’re ‘all in.’ You can’t say how you feel to someone who is slightly confused or merely interested. You want an all or nothing kind of love and you won’t say a word until you know that they’re also ready for the same kind of love you’re willing to give.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’re waiting for them to say it first. Because how could they not? You feel like you’ve given them so many signs and done so much to win their heart that they should just crack under pressure and admit it. You like the reassurance and the satisfaction you get when you feel like you’ve ‘won’ someone’s heart, not the other way around.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’re not in the perfect place for it. You have to be mentally, financially and emotionally stable before you can tell someone that you love them or be with anyone. You will never be truly invested in a relationship until you’re done investing in yourself first.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You have to fully move on from all your exes first before telling someone how you feel. You don’t want to lead anyone on and sometimes you can have feelings for someone but you could also still take your ex back if they started talking to you again. So you want to let go of all the baggage first before you let someone in.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You don’t want to ever feel ‘vulnerable’ or ‘weak.’ You’re known for your strength, independence and social intelligence and you don’t want anything to shake that reputation. For you, telling someone you love them means taking off your mask and showing someone your deeper and softer side and that terrifies you.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You still want to travel and meet other people. You don’t want to tell someone you love them, then move to a new country shortly after. Until you find your ‘home’ you’re not going to let yourself fall in love with anyone temporarily. You want forever.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re a thinker. An over-thinker. Telling someone you love them is impulsive and irrational. You have to build a strong connection first, get to know them on a deeper level, see them at their worst then make a decision. It takes a long time for you to actually open up and tell someone how you’re really feeling.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You think they already know. You think you make it obvious when you see them or they probably understood when you sent them that song or that poem or that quote. Because you’re a creative person, you think people have the same knack to interpret the cues you give them accurately but sometimes things get lost in translation and unless you explicitly say it, no one will know what you’re thinking.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You don’t want someone to reject you. You don’t know to handle rejection or not take it personally. You’re going to think that you’re the problem and you won’t sleep at night because you’ll be questioning yourself. So you play it safe and say nothing at all.
