Here’s How You Can Avoid Dating A Fuckboy, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


(March 21st to April 19th)

You’re attracted to people who have a thirst for adventure, but this can often lead to you ending up with flighty, restless guys who ghost you the minute things get comfortable or routine-like. Stop letting yourself instantly fall for the mysterious, pioneering types and take your time getting to know them so you can figure out if they’re interested in getting to know you or if they just want to screw around.


(April 20th to May 21st)

It’s great that you want to take care of people, but that doesn’t mean it’s okay to be with someone who lets you make all the effort while they give nothing in return. Pay close attention when you’re first getting to know someone and you’ll realize very quickly if they’re treating you like a doormat or if they’re just as happy to take care of you as you are to take care of them.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Stop falling for the guy who only likes the easy, carefree, “chill” version of you. Because the minute you show the more vulnerable, human side of you, he’s running away because he’s too much of a coward to handle it. A fuckboy will be with you when things are easy, but a genuinely good guy will want to be with you even when everything is not perfect.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Trust your gut. You’re intuitive. You can read people a lot better and a lot faster than most people. So if the alarm bells are going off in the beginning, even if you really like the guy, they’re going off for a reason. Cut it off before you get in too deep. Take advantage of your amazing filtering system. You’re lucky to have it.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Stop trying to shrink yourself down to make your guy feel more comfortable. A fuckboy will feel insecure about your success, creativity, and endless capabilities. But the right guy will like you even more because of these things. He’ll be comfortable enough with himself to know that being with someone who is smart and successful is a lucky match that he won’t want to throw away.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Don’t consistently adjust and rearrange your life just to make everything easier on the guy you’re dating. If you’re constantly stressed under the pressure of feeling like it’s up to you to make things work, you’re with a fuckboy. Relationships are supposed to be 50-50, so if it feels like you’re doing all the work, you’re with the wrong person.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Stop worrying about keeping him happy every second of every day. It’s in your nature to charming and fun to be around, but you don’t need to be walking on eggshells around him. If you feel like you can’t relax around him, or that you always have to “not give a fuck” if he wants to get blacked out with his friends every night, it’s a no-brainer. Let him go and find someone who’s actually good enough for you.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Don’t make your spark smaller just so that he feels comfortable enough to date you. You’re naturally a very powerful person with a strong presence, and that shouldn’t have to change just because he has low self-esteem. Walk away now, or you’ll spend all of your time trying to trivialize your successes just to make him feel important.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You need to stop assuming that it’s always going to work out for the best. If he’s treating you poorly, or you’ve been told by multiple people that he’s not exclusive with you, it’s not worth it. Just because you’re an optimistic person doesn’t mean you have to give your whole self to a relationship that’s draining you.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

There’s nothing wrong with being practical or careful when you’re starting something with a new guy. In fact, this is probably the best way for you to avoid falling into something with a fuckboy. Stick to your logical nature and listen to yourself when you have a bad feeling about someone, no matter how charming he might initially seem.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You can be loyal to a fault. If you want to avoid ending up with the wrong kind of guy, remember that they need to be just as loyal to you as you’re willing to be to them. And if he’s ‘not ready to commit’ or ‘just wants to see how things go’ when you’re ready to settle down, there is nothing wrong with loving yourself enough to call it off.


(February 19th to March 20th)

Avoid any dude who’s trying to take advantage of your selflessness. If you’re always dropping everything for him but he makes a big stink out of doing literally anything for you, get out of there as fast as you can, that’s fuckboy territory to the extreme. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
